5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Should've done it sooner!

My experience with Dr. Winters was great. The environment in his office is relaxed, yet professional. He has great bedside manner and his sense of humor helps lighten things up. I am very happy with the results of my breast reduction/lift, I wish I'd done it years ago. Not only did the surgery improve my breasts , I feel like it improved my whole overall appearance. I will be going back...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Absolutely Worth It! - Maywood, NJ

I have been unhappy with my nose since I can remember. Dr. Winters was distinctly different from other plastic surgeons I visited over the years. There was no pressure during my consultation. He helped me to understand the surgery at a different level. Based on my experience and results, I bet he understands the surgery at a different level from other surgeons as well. My result is beautiful...

So Worthwhile - Hackensack, NJ

I just found this site! I had a primary rhinoplasty by Dr. Winters several years ago and couldn't be happier! I had visited 4 other surgeons prior to selecting him as my surgeon. My nose actually looks better all the time! My advice is to stay away from hype and slicksters. Look for a calm, comfortable and confident surgeon---not a salesman!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

SO Worth It - Maywood, NJ

I am 27 years old and have considered rhinoplasty surgery since my teens. Through the magic that is now social media and the internet, I was able to find Dr. Rick Winters. I came to see Dr. Winters from several states away as I was convinced that the right rhinoplasty surgeon would be worth traveling for. My hope was that if I saw enough doctors and did enough diligence, that the surgery...

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

I Thought It Was Hopeless. Maywood, NJ

After two previous failed closed rhinoplasties many years ago, I was deemed a rhinoplasty cripple. Several surgeons dismissed a revision as either not worth the risk or not something they were enthusiastic to take on. After much disappointment and frustration, I renewed my search and came upon Dr. Winters. After carefully evaluating me and explaining his proposed plan, he did not mince words...

Nobody Knows Noses Like This Guy! - Maywood, NJ

Without any hesitation, Dr. Winters is THE guy to go to. He did a revision rhinoplasty on me a week ago, and not only do I feel great, the results were better than I could have even imagined. From the initial consultation to the post op appointment, Dr Winters was so incredibely kind, honest, attentive, and knowledgable. I loved that our consultation was devoid of any lame schmoozing that you...

Amazing Doctor, Happy Patient! - Maywood, NJ

I had been having trouble breathing for years. I suffered from constant sinus infections, severe snoring, and shortness of breath, and I had tried everything to help with these problems. I finally decided to see a plastic surgeon and find out his thoughts on my problem. Well, sure enough after a consultation and a CT scan, it was shown my nose had to be corrected. I went in for my surgery with...
