A good plastic surgeon?

Thumbnail image for stethoscope and ophthalmoscopeAnonymous emails:

I am beginning to do research into breast reduction surgery, and am wondering whether anyone in AOAland has had this or a similarly invasive plastic surgery and has any recommendations about which local surgeons to talk to and which to stay away from.

Have a suggestion? Please share. And please include a sentence or two about why you're recommending that doctor or practice.

Try the Williams Center. Two of the doctors are good friends and will take great care of you:

As with any surgical procedure, you want to ensure that the surgeon is an expert in his or her particular field.

Here are some questions from the ASPS to ask when interviewing a prospective surgeon:

Good luck.

The first person who says "why would someone want SMALLER ones?" gets punched in their unreconstructed nose.

A friend of mine (no, really) had rhinoplasty at Williams and was extremely pleased both with the results and the practice overall. And if you were inclined to ask about less invasive procedures, like Botox, why I might just be inclined to recommend Williams for that, too.

I went to williams for a deviated septum
They took photos.
After the procedure i have a wide, bulbous nose!
My septum is still deviated, and they denied taking photos!

the surgical group on washington avenue across from SUNY has been in business for a long time.

JUST as important as the surgery - also check into WHERE they do this procedure - will this be in a free standing surgery center - what kind of anesthesia will they use? - who will be the anesthesiologist ( a physician or a physician assistant/nurse practitioner.) what is plan b should you have an anesthesia reaction or medical complication

and if you smoke or drink be completely honest with useage/consumption with all medical people !

^In response to Stella, I want to say there is another group that has been around for a couple years now too.

They're a small network of doctors & plastic surgeons, and with their combined experience, they pretty much offer most types of procedures. I think augmentation is big part of their business model [as seen here: http://www.nybreastaugmentationinfo.com/ ] but you can find out more about their breast reduction surgeries offered on their main site: http://www.theplasticsurgerygroup.net/plastic-surgery/breast-reduction.cfm

But ultimately, keep up with the homework and consultations, because that type of research will pay tribute to your biggest benefit in the end.

I'm concerned how much demolition is going on here. Too many important, historic buildings in Albany are already tagged with an 'X' and the city's approach seems to tear down and ask questions later. Not only are these homes part of the city's history but they are what makes this place unique and they should be treasured- not trashed. In addition, these structures are better built and will last longer than new construction. ...
