People choose to have Rhinoplasty, or Nose Surgery, for both aesthetic and corrective reasons. Deviated Septums are among the most common reason people choose to have Rhinoplasty. Having a Deviated Septum can make it very difficult to breath properly. Another reason people choose Rhinoplasty is for it’s aesthetic benefits. Some people feel their noses are too large or that it is disproportionate to the rest of their face. Injury to the nose causing crookedness or deformity is also another reason people choose to undergo Rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty generally takes around an hour to complete and the results are instant, minus some initial swelling and bruising. Your splint or bandage will be removed anywhere from one to two weeks after the procedure and you can often return to work within days of the procedure. Of course, every patient’s experience and recovery is different, so it is important that you listen to your body and consult with your doctor if you have any questions.

The Skin Care Specialists at the office of Board Certifed Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS remind you that your skin can suffer from the weather during theupcoming cold months. As the body’s largest organ, skin is far more delicate than you probably realize. Maintaining its moisture balance is essential Just as your body needs different clothing to protect it against the changing weather; your skin requires a different skin care regime to properly protect it from the elements of winter. In the winter months the skin’s moisture balance is lowered due to the combined effect of the cold air outdoors and the dry air indoors. Under these conditions, your skin requires more moisture. Change your daily skin care routine to include a moisturizer with a humectant barrier to keep that healthy glow. Skin care is an ongoing process, regardless of the season. A visit with one of our skin care professionals to develop a personalized daily regime with our medical grade skin care products from Neocutis, Obagi and Skinceutical is essential for healthy skin.

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS believes if you are faced with a new diagnosis of breast cancer or in the case of a prophylactic mastectomy one fact remains constant. It is in your best interest that information regarding the availability of breast reconstruction be provided early, certainly well before undergoing a mastectomy.
The key to receiving this information is to assemble a team of physicians that include your primary care physician, gynecologist, breast surgeon, oncologist or radiation oncologist and a Board Certified plastic surgeon. This group of medical professionals, working in concert with you, will assure you of coordinated care and help you to explore all treatment options available, resulting in the most beneficial outcome.
Not every woman who undergoes a mastectomy opts for breast reconstruction; some choose to wear an external prosthesis inside their bra. However, each year tens of thousands of mastectomy patients in the United States choose to have breast reconstruction as a part of their recovery. The best way to explore your options is to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has experience with breast reconstruction prior to undergoing a mastectomy.
The decision to have breast reconstruction is a personal one. Become well informed, trust your team, and remain proactive. The decision to undergo breast reconstruction requires careful consideration, but the choice is yours and yours alone to make. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we would like to pay tribute to the strength and courage of those of you affected by this disease.
