RealSelf community says

"My breathing has improved and my nose looks the best I could ever ask for." "In the end, let’s face it *pun intended*, rhinoplasty was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and in the hands of a master like Dr. Joseph, one that I will never regret...." "Because he is using permanent filler, you should expect that you will need 2-3 visits to get the perfect results because he will never overfill."

26 Years Old, Long Awaited Rhinoplasty: Could Not Be Happier

From the second I met Dr. Joseph at my consultation I knew I was making the right decision. I had been unhappy with my nose since the age of 14, it was crooked with a bump that seemed to get bigger with each passing year. I was very self conscious about it and had wanted a rhinoplasty for the longest time but was scared of looking like a completely different person or not liking the result. Dr...

Debating Between Kybella or Chin/Neck Lipo? Choose Chin/Neck, Here is Why - West Orange, NJ

I had my first procedure with Dr. Joesph and his staff back in 2014 when I received my Rhinoplasty (see previous review). I loved my new nose, and wanted a sculpted jaw line to go with it. My neck and under my jaw always had a little more skin, this was genetic, no matter how much water or weight I lost, the painful truth was it seen time and time again by my parent, cousins, grandparents, you...

24 Years Old Rhinoplasty and Neck Lipo

Dr. Joseph deserves every positive and praising review. After reading so many great reviews, I had to schedule a consultation to see what all the "hype" was about. After my first visit with him, I was like, "I get it." Right off the bat, he was kind, professional, funny, personable, and just everything you want in a plastic surgeon. After the consultation I knew this was the Dr. I trusted to give me the nose I always wanted. There were several other things I wanted done, which he was honest in saying "I don't need," which I appreciate because he is not just fishing for procedures as some Dr.'s may do. We agreed to do a neck lipo in addition to my rhinoplasty and both turned out great. Aside from his amazing surgical work, (I can truly say only an artist could sculpt my nose into what is now and because of him I now view plastic surgery as an art form,) it's the small things Dr. Joseph does in addition to being adept with a scalpel. He heard my mom call me by my nickname, and started calling me by the same nickname, he remembered what school I go to and what I want to do, and what meant the most to me was that right before my surgery I started crying because I was so scared and nervous, Dr. Joseph held my hand as I lay on the hospital bed waiting for the anesthesia to kick in. It made me feel so safe and it was such a small, but touching gesture that really put me at ease amidst all the emotions I was going through. Overall, Dr. Joseph is not only an amazing doctor, but an amazing person. I'm thankful that a prior patient of his happened to cross paths with my mom, and offer the recommendation that led me to him. I am extremely pleased with my results and have had an extremely positive journey with him, I recommend his services for anyone seeking rhinoplasty and/or other facial procedures.

No Regrets, Great Results, Awesome Surgeon! - West Orange, NJ

I can't say enough about how warm, friendly and just plain nice Dr. Joseph is. I had read a lot of these very same reviews before visiting his office, and I thought to myself that he sounded too good to be true and that maybe these patients had been compensated for their reviews. Nope! I can tell you that he is genuinely a kind and caring person who patiently explained the entire process to me and did not pressure me in any way to make a decision during consultation. He takes photos, shows you digital image comparisons to the best of his estimation, and prints everything out for you to take home so you that you have everything you need to make a well-informed decision. However, it didn't end there. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Joseph came in to talk with me, asked if he could pray for/with me (which we did), and did his best to reassure me that all was going to turn out well - even after I came into the operating room, where he held my hand and continued to reassure me until the anesthesia knocked me out. It is absolutely the truth that Dr. Joseph is an amazing surgeon and person! (So is everyone who works for him at the office and also everyone at the surgical center where I got the procedure done.) I am extremely happy with the results of my rhinoplasty. He did everything he said he was going to do and my nose looks great, better than I expected! I highly recommended him for anyone considering rhinoplasty!

I've Wanted It for Years ! If I Knew It Was This Simple I Would Have Done It Earlier - West Orange, NJ

Dr Eric Joseph was such a pleasure to see every time we went into the office. He made me feel comfortable every step of the way. From the very beginning the office visits had no pressure and are very informative. He was warm and personable every time. The day of the procedure he made me feel super comfortable the whole time. This is very important when you have nerves going into surgury. He called to check up on me the evening of the surgury and gave me his personal number to text him anytime. All the follow ups post procedure where super pleasant easy to schedule and a breeze. His staff are one of the nicest people I have ever met. Dr Eric Josephs office should be the example other medical offices on how to treat patients.

best doctor i've ever met! love my rhinoplasty! changed my life! - West Orange, NJ

Choosing Dr. Eric Joseph to do my rhinoplasty was the BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! He is the nicest, kindest, person/doctor I've ever encountered. Even his staff is extremely kind and helpful. I started calling around for doctors and estimates for my Rhinoplasty in February of 2016. Dr. Joseph had the best pricing, the most reviews, and the highest star rating. I was able to schedule my consultation within a week and my procedure within a month! I also loved how the consultation fee gets deducted from the procedure cost should you choose to have it done. When I walked in for my consultation the ladies at the front made me feel right at home. They knew all my information and said Dr. Joseph is excited to meet you. The office was very clean and comfortable. The minute Dr. Joseph walked in I knew I was in GREAT HANDS. He had a smile that lit up the room and immediately shook my hand and gave the greatest welcome ever. He was extremely likable and very personable. I was instantly relaxed and any sense of nervousness about this process was eliminated. He was extremely thorough during the consultation and he answered every question I asked. He then took some pictures of my nose and showed me a digitally realistic version of what my nose what look like after the procedure. He even explained everything he was going to do during the surgery to produce that outcome. I also truly appreciated how honest and genuine he was and continues to be to this day. There are other procedures he performs that I have asked him to do for me. However, he told me I didn't need them. I appreciated this because it let me know he is not out just to collect more money and he actually cares about his patients and conducts an ethical practice. On the day of the procedure he welcomed me with that same positive energy and reassured me I was in good hands. He even prayed with me before surgery which I LOVED. When I woke up I was pain free but was immediately informed I did have a breathing complication (pulmonary edema) caused by my gag reflex as the anesthesiologist was removing the breathing tubes. This caused some fluid to enter my lungs so I did have to go to the ER after the procedure. Dr Joseph was right there with me and made sure I got first class treatment from the ER. He stayed with me for hours until I was good to go!!! We even FaceTimed during my recovery and was always available if had questions about anything! I am now 3 months post op and I LOVE MY NOSE and Love how I look! The subtle changes helped me achieve a natural look and now I love taking pictures and videos. I want to say thank you to DR. ERIC JOSEPH and I would advise anyone looking for a rhinoplasty to chose him!

25 Years Old - Finally Have the Nose I Have Always Wanted! - West Orange, NJ

For as long as I can remember, I had hated my nose. It was always an insecurity of mine and something I was made fun of for in high school. Even though I hated it, the idea of plastic surgery seemed impossible to me, but as I got older I became more and more unhappy with the way I looked! I would cringe at pictures of myself, especially from a profile or any side view. I looked into...
