The Plastic Surgery Questions You Should Ask in New York

Woman Looking at Face New York NY

When considering plastic surgery, the majority of candidates think of aesthetic concerns. However, there is a lot more to the field than appearances. Even if you are solely interested in rejuvenating treatments, these secondary concerns will affect your everyday life.

Plastic surgery involves making changes to the symmetry and balance of features. These alterations are either temporary or permanent, depending on which methods are used. Some patients are happy to accept certain sacrifices. That doesn’t mean that those patients shouldn’t have the opportunity to make informed decisions.

Aesthetics in Plastic Surgery

Balancing facial features is a primary goal of aesthetics in plastic surgery. How the features maintain symmetry when the face or body moves is important. A professional and ethical plastic surgeon should therefore explain how each treatment option impacts the movement and symmetry of features.

Ethnic background and skin type will also affect the outcomes of plastic surgery. Seeing before and after examples of similar procedures can help candidates determine the most appropriate treatment path. Dr. Maurice Khosh has extensive experience in these areas of facial plastic surgery.

Functional Considerations

During a consultation with Dr. Khosh, functional considerations in plastic surgery are part of the conversation. If a procedure is likely to affect breathing or movement of features, patients may want to reconsider their options. Every patient has different facial anatomy and genetics which play a role in shaping the results of cosmetic treatment.

There is also a potential upside to altering functionality of facial features with plastic surgery. Common examples of this include improving breathing, altering the shape of a smile or changing how the eyes look when making different facial expressions.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
