Dr. Joshua Halpern is an EXCELLENT plastic surgeon. I had compared 12 surgeons in my area by credentials, reviews, and photos. I narrowed it down to three consultations, and Dr Halpern was clearly the best. I told him I disliked my nose, but had no idea why. Within seconds he listed off everything he could change about it. He was very focused on making sure my nose was proportionate and looked natural to ME, which was very assuring.

The day of the surgery I was very impressed with how well the staff seemed to get along with each other, and I loved how everything was oriented to my comfort- from fresh-out of the dryer sheets to warm socks and a calf massager, the comfort and extreme sanitation was all very assuring. The whole recovery was so comfortable. Dr Halpern prescribed medication all oriented for a speedy recovery with minimal bleeding, bruising, swelling, pain and antibiotics to avoid infection (made me very upset with my dentist that removed my wisdom teeth who did none of these sanitation, comfort, and speedy healing methods).

My rhinoplasty was done December 13, and by Christmas Eve bandages were off and I was perfectly healed. I absolutely LOVE my new nose- it looks meant for my face (more than my original nose). Dr Halpern is an artist and perfectionist with an excellent work ethic, the best kind of person for facial reconstruction. He gave me the nose that God intended, and I think the only reason I wasn't born with this nose was because God wanted to ensure that I didn't grow up too vain.
