Most people who seek out a rhinoplasty – more commonly known as a nose job – are frustrated by the way their nose protrudes and throws off the balance of their facial profile. However, few people consider that the position of the chin makes a big difference in the appearance of your nose. If your chin is in a good position, it will make your nose appear smaller, and your overall face will look more proportionate.
When you come in for a rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Grossman or Dr. Capraro will also evaluate your chin position to determine how a chin implant could further improve your facial appearance. If you have a “retrusive” chin...

But how do you know whether a doctor has undergone the training necessary to deliver the exceptional outcome you deserve?

Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro may perform a rhinoplasty procedure to reshape your nose.

In some cases, multiple facial plastic surgery procedures may...

When performed by a highly skilled board certified plastic surgeon, a face lift can achieve subtle, natural looking results that make you look rejuvenated and refreshed. But in the hands of a less skilled and experienced surgeon, your face lift procedure may not deliver the outcome you desire. Unfortunately, it is not as easy to conceal the results of a poorly performed facelift as it is to conceal the results of a subpar breast or body contouring procedure. In order to ensure that your face lift is performed properly, you will need to choose your plastic surgeon carefully...

Undergoing bariatric surgery or any other type of weight loss surgery can be an important step in taking control of your health.

After weight loss surgery, it is common to have excess loose, hanging skin in areas that used to hold large fat deposits. This may serve to accentuate the areas which used to carry most of your weight, preventing you from enjoying an improved body contour following your...
