Travelling from Boston for Rhinoplasty from Dr. Tobias
While there are many well-qualified rhinoplasty surgeons in Boston, an increasing number of Bostonians are finding it worthwhile to travel to the tri-state area for their rhinoplasty surgeries. This is because Dr. Geoffrey Tobias, a nasal surgeon at the very pinnacle of his profession, works out of New York and Englewood, New Jersey. Deciding to have nasal surgery is a life-altering decision that can affect your personal relationships, your social life and even your career advancement. Choosing a gifted surgeon is, therefore of utmost importance.
Dr. Tobias is the only New York surgeon exclusively practicing rhinoplasty. He can, therefore, concentrate all of his efforts on attaining the best possible surgical results with this type of procedure. All of his educational and research credentials are in the field of rhinoplasty and he keeps abreast of all of the latest research in the field.
Plastic surgery is clearly an art as well as a science. Dr. Tobias, with credentials in both fields, is renowned for his ability to achieve the most natural, as well as the most beautiful, facial appearance.

A nose with a prominent bump or widely flared or tightly pinched nostrils can be a source of social discomfort or diminished self-esteem.

Getting to Dr. Tobias
Though some people prefer to drive from Boston to Manhattan or Englewood, it is also a very short flight to LaGuardia, JFK or Newark. Trains and buses are also available.
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.
To get to our office in Manhattan, located at 815 Park Avenue (corner of 75th Street), you can drive and park on 75th Street between Lexington and Park Avenues or take public transportation. If you come to our New York office first, you can either drive or take the bus to Englewood.
