Atlanta Rhinoplasty: Georgians Go North for a Nose Job
As both the capital and most populated city of the state of Georgia, Atlanta is a hub of Southern culture. People who live in Atlanta are knowledgeable and discriminating. Among the typical reasons people from Atlanta travel to the tri-state area — to attend Broadway shows, take in the museums, see relatives, shop in some of the best stores in the country, eat in some of the best restaurants — is to seek the finest in certain types of medical care.
For those who are looking to undergo cosmetic nasal surgery and have done their homework, there is one name that comes up with predictable frequency: Dr. Geoffrey Tobias. Because Dr. Tobias works out of his offices in Manhattan and in Englewood, New Jersey, many Georgians have decided to make the short trip to visit the surgeon renowned for his unique artistic approach to nasal surgery.
After all, when you’ve made the life-altering decision to improve your central facial feature, you don’t want to put yourself in the hands of someone who has only a good reputation, you want to put your trust in the very best rhinoplasty surgeon available. Not only does Dr. Tobias have outstanding credentials, he has a track record of having performed well over 7,000 rhinoplasty procedures during his career. His numerous awards, media coverage, and wildly enthusiastic testimonials speak for themselves. And, since a picture is worth a thousand words, do yourself a favor and take a look at the before and after images of Dr. Tobias’ patients. One glance will explain why his patients are delighted with his artistry as well as his surgical skill.
Why Dr. Tobias is worth the trip from Atlanta
Among the many characteristics that distinguish Dr. Tobias in the field of rhinoplasty are:
- His background in art as well as science
- His innovations and refinements in the closed rhinoplasty procedure which result in minimal discomfort, no visible scarring, decreased swelling and bruising, and a speedier recovery
- His commitment to bringing out your natural beauty, rather than creating a “perfect nose”
- His exclusive focus on rhinoplasty procedures
- His track record of improving lives as well as facial aesthetics for over 25 years
Patients who have had their rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Tobias report not only improved appearance, but increased self-esteem, new self-assurance in personal relationships, and new confidence in the workplace. Dr. Tobias doesn’t just correct your nose, removing a bump here, narrowing nostrils there, he works to make your face aesthetically pleasing, giving you the nose you’ve always felt you were meant to have.
In addition to being awarded the nation’s Top Research Award by the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Tobias was recently elected by his most esteemed colleagues as President of the Rhinoplasty Society, the discipline’s most prestigious honor. All of Dr. Tobias’ operations are performed in The Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, a full-service, state-of-the-art hospital equipped with an internationally renowned department of anesthesiology to ensure that his patients are provided with the ultimate in safety and comfort.
The Trip from Atlanta to the Greater New York Metropolitan Area
Dr. Tobias works out of two offices, one in Manhattan and one in Englewood, New Jersey. All of his surgeries, however, are performed in the surgical unit of The Englewood Hospital. For Atlanta residents coming north for rhinoplasty, it probably makes the most sense to come this direction during the period when the weather is more pleasant in New York and New Jersey than in Georgia: late spring through early autumn.
What to Expect
If you are coming from out of the area, you should plan for an average stay of 8 days in New Jersey. You should also plan to have someone stay with you for at least a day or two after the surgery to make sure you are entirely over the effects of the anesthesia.
All rhinoplasties are performed on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. To be absolutely certain that you receive appropriate care immediately after the operation, Dr. Tobias requires that out-of-town patients stay over in the surgical unit the night following the surgery. After that, you can return to your hotel.
Postsurgically, you will have a cast over your nose to protect it until the following Monday when you will return to the New Jersey office to have it removed. Most patients are able to return home on the day following the cast removal.
Convenient Places to Stay in Englewood
We recommend two hotels nearby: The Clinton Inn in Tenafly and The Crowne Plaza in Englewood. Both are about a mile from the hospital. They are both comfortable and accommodating; The Clinton, however, has the advantage of being in walking distance of eateries and a movie theatre.
