The American Institute of Plastic Surgeons has recognized the exceptional performance of New York’s Plastic Surgeon A. Joshua Zimm, M.D. as Three Years 10 Best Plastic Surgeons for Client Satisfaction.
The American Institute of Plastic Surgeons is a third-party rating organization that publishes an annual list of the Top 10 Plastic Surgeon in each state. Surgeons who are selected to the "10 Best" list must pass American Institute of Plastic Surgeons’ rigorous selection process, which is based on patient and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and American Institute of Plastic Surgeons’ independent evaluation. American Institute of Plastic Surgeons’ annual list was created to be used as a resource for patients during the surgeon selection process.

In previous studies, plastic surgeons tried to assess how youthful or attractive people look after surgery. For instance, a 2012 study found that plastic surgery can take nine years off a person's face, and a 2013 study in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery found that plastic surgery makes people look a few years younger, but not necessarily more attractive. However, that study was somewhat flawed because of how people were selected for the study, said the 2013 study's author, Dr. A. Joshua Zimm, a plastic surgeon at the Lenox Hill Hospital and Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Institute of North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System.
Cosmetic surgery can make women look more likable, socially adept and feminine, a new study suggests.

People have different philosophies on how they actively manage facial aging. Some wait longer until they are much older, preferring to allow more significant age related changes to occur prior to treatment. This group will likely need surgical intervention such as a facelift to achieve their desired improvement which will be a more dramatic change. They may prefer to wait, not wanting to have regular "maintenance" visits.
Others prefer to start treatment earlier prior to severe aging changes with BOTOX, fillers, and other non invasive treatments such as Ulthera. These patients desire to maintain a fresh, youthful look throughout their years with more subtle improvements.
It is relevant to note that there is no "right or wrong" with either approach, but it's important to understand which each type of treatment can and will achieve for each individual.
