Botox, short for Botulinum Toxin, is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that has gained immense popularity for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Administered through small injections, Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for facial expression, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin.

FEATURED testimonials

"I am very happy with the results."

“Prior to the consultation, I was very uneasy about getting fillers in my cheeks because I didn’t want to look unnatural or feminine. Dr. Zimm senses my concerns and was very patient…before leaving his office, I knew exactly what to expect over the next few days after the injection. All in all, I am very happy with the results and I’m glad I found Dr. Zimm’s office.”

"My breathing is significantly improved and the cosmetic portion was beautifully done."

“…As a healthcare provider myself, I have worked with many physicians over the years and I can attest to his competence and professionalism. His practice is extremely well run and his excellent bedside manner, astute medical knowledge and involvement in the latest research put me at ease and allowed for me to completely trust his abilities… His passion for his field of work is evident, and I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my sinus reconstruction and rhinoplasty -- my breathing is significantly improved and the cosmetic portion is beautifully done.”

"World-class Surgeon with a Small-town Manner"

“I was really impressed by how much he knew about state-of-the art surgical techniques and practiced them. He is clearly an extremely skilled surgeon. He is also a very intelligent and kind person. As someone who doesn't love the idea of surgery, I felt comfortable and confident… As someone who works as a professor and an artist, I can say that Dr. Zimm sets a high bar for engaging with people and teaching them about their condition, for putting people at ease and building trust, and for clearly being passionate about both the artistry and the technical dexterity of his work. I couldn't recommend him more.”

"He won me by his demeanor, his experience, strive for perfection and honesty."

“Need a perfect, natural-looking nose? Go nowhere else but to Dr. Zimm!...Being involved in the industry myself, I went to 13 different rhinoplasty consultations in NYC to find the right surgeon. After hearing lots of opinions, prices and seeing different images of the "perfect" nose, I chose Dr. Zimm. He won me by his demeanor, his experience, strive for perfection and honesty. He also didn't have a "signature" nose he puts on every one of his patients (walk around the UES and you'll know what I'm talking about). He is truly an amazing surgeon and anyone who works with him at the hospital will tell you the same.”

"Dr. Zimm made me feel as though he was treating a friend or family member."

“Working in the industry I have had the opportunity to work with many surgeons and am always very particular when choosing a physician myself, family, friends and so forth. Dr. Zimm recently performed a Blepharoplasty on me in his office. I consulted with 10 surgeons before moving forward and scheduling this surgery. Without hesitation, I have to say I could not have made a better choice in surgeons!!!! Dr. Zimm was confident and competent, he also had a wonderful bedside manner and made me feel as though he was treating a friend or family member of his own. Fantastic! Not to mention the results are amazing!!!! Completely natural, but amazing Thank you Dr. Zimm!!!!!!”

"Warm and extremely professional"

I am not one to write reviews, but Dr. Zimm deserves one. I had numerous consultations with other top rhinoplasty surgeons across the country but as soon as I had my consultation with Dr. Zimm, I immediately felt he was the right surgeon for me. I am very thankful I chose him. Heather and his entire staff have been warm and extremely professional. He is a brilliant surgeon. I can’t say enough positive things about my experience and would recommend him to anyone looking for a kind, patient, artistic surgeon.

"From the moment you step into Dr. Zimm's office you feel at ease."

"I spent the bulk of my life feeling self conscious about how my ears were set on my head, and I started to look around for surgeons for my otoplasty to help correct them. After my first meeting with Dr. Zimm, I cancelled my remaining consultations with other surgeons. Dr. Zimm and his staff make you feel at ease and informed at every step of the process. From the consistent and clear communication all the way through to the fantastic results and follow up care, Dr. Zimm was without a doubt the right choice to handle my case. Thank you Dr. Zimm and team!"

Frequently asked questions

Facial plastic surgeons specialize in enhancing the visual appearance of facial features and structures. Typically, a facial plastic surgeon has completed a residency in otolaryngology, specializing in the treatment of ear, nose, and throat conditions. Following residency, they obtain additional training in facial plastic surgery to enhance their expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgery.

Facial plastic surgeons in New York City perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries that include:

Although the procedures performed by cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons can often overlap, they are not the same. The main difference between a cosmetic and a plastic surgeon comes down to the training involved.

  • Training for board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City. These surgeons are required to complete a residency that lasts from six to eight years after the completion of medical school, which focuses on providing training in plastic and reconstructive surgery. A plastic surgeon’s training includes cosmetic surgery and a full range of reconstructive options. In addition, some may go on to attend a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to learn not only cosmetic but also complex reconstructive procedures involving the face. 
  • Training for cosmetic surgeons. These surgeons, on the other hand, can obtain their surgical training in many different specialties that do not necessarily have to be related to the face. Cosmetic surgeons are certified by the Board of Cosmetic Surgery, which is not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. This certification can be obtained by any surgeon (e.g., a general surgeon or an OB/GYN surgeon) or dentist who performs a one- to two-year fellowship in cosmetic surgery. Thus, cosmetic surgeons may not be fully qualified to perform extensive surgeries to the degree a plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon can.

The cost of facial plastic surgery in New York City can vary depending on a multitude of factors. The main distinguishing factor includes what procedure is being performed and if any complementary procedures are performed with it. 

  • Generally, surgical procedures will cost more than the more minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, such as Botox and dermal fillers, but the lasting effects of the noninvasive procedures are considerably shorter than surgical corrections. 
  • The surgeon's expertise and experience are other factors that may contribute to a procedure's overall cost. Selecting an experienced surgeon is essential in obtaining superior results with fewer complications. Therefore, they are in high demand, resulting in higher upfront prices, but in the long run, they may save money, as their procedures often have fewer complications and fewer needs for additional procedures. 
  • If a procedure requires general anesthesia and is performed in a surgical facility or hospital, the overall cost will increase to cover these services. 
  • The geographical location a procedure is performed in can play a role in how much it will cost. Cosmetic surgery in New York City is in higher demand than in smaller cities and those not along the east and west coasts, which may result in higher prices. 

During the initial consultation, all of these factors will be taken into consideration, and an individualized cost will be discussed with you. This upfront pricing helps to reduce stress and uncertainty going forward.

Like all cosmetic procedures, there is no one best age to have a neck lift or facelift. It comes down to when you feel you are ready for the procedure and when it best fits into your life. Most commonly, these procedures are performed in a person's 40s, 50s, or 60s. Around these ages, the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, deep lines, and sagging of the skin, begin to appear. 

Because everyone ages differently, the age to have the procedure should occur when these signs of aging begin to bother you, and nonsurgical procedures are no longer effective in producing the results you want.

The nose is one of the first facial features people notice, and, for many, this is an area of insecurity and dissatisfaction. As the most common procedure in facial cosmetic surgery, nose jobs are pursued by a large number of patients. The goal of rhinoplasty is to improve facial symmetry by changing the appearance of the nose.

A rhinoplasty can change the size or position of the nasal bridge. Whether you have a low or wide or high bridge, the top facial plastic surgeons in New York City can help achieve a more balanced appearance. In addition, a nose job can remove bumps or humps in the nose, alter the shape of the tip of the nose, and change the shape and size of the nostrils. 

The cost of a nose job in New York City depends on many different factors. Typically, a rhinoplasty in New York City can cost $21,000-$26,000 or more, depending on the complex nature of the procedure. One major factor determining the cost of the procedure is the surgeon's experience and expertise. Because the best rhinoplasty surgeon in New York City is often the ones with the greatest amount of experience, they are often in more demand and will be more expensive.

The cost of the procedure includes surgeon fees, postoperative appointments, and any post surgical garments needed after the procedure. The cost of the anesthesia, anesthesiologist, facility fee, and support staff used for the procedure is also included in the overall price. During the initial consultation, a detailed explanation of all the costs involved will be provided to prevent any surprises during your recovery. 

Botox injections use a neurotoxin to reduce signals from the nerves to the muscles, inhibiting contractions. Over time, the neurotoxin wears off, and the nerves begin sending signals to the muscles again. Although the length of effectiveness can vary from patient to patient, typically, Botox injections will last for three to four months. 

Because of patient variability, some may experience longer durations of action, typically in the range of four to six months, while in others, a shorter duration of two to three months may be experienced. In addition, first-time users will often experience shorter durations of effectiveness, but repeat injections may last longer.

Chin implants are made of synthetic material uniquely designed to match a patient’s facial anatomy and produce the desired results. These implants are used during chin augmentation to enhance your facial profile and improve jawline definition. A well-defined jawline is associated with youthfulness and health. The enhanced jawline helps bring your facial features into balance and improve your overall facial attractiveness. 

These implants are inserted via a small incision under the chin and placed directly against the chin bone. Although the implants provide immediate results, the full results may take two to four weeks to appreciate as swelling improves. Chin implants are made of durable material, producing permanent results that will not change as you age.
