5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant - Latham, NY

I had considered having my nose done for about five years and finally went to a consultation with another plastic surgeon in another practice and wasn't comfortable with it. About a year later after researching more doctors and practices I met with Dr. Edwin Williams and I finally felt for the first time 100% confident in what I wanted to do. He helped me come up with a plan to achieve the goals I had in mind. He explained how the proportions of my facial features affect one another and I ultimately decided on a rhinoplasty and chin implant. Dr. Williams made me feel absolutely comfortable every step of the way and always listened to me and took my concerns seriously. The staff was also incredible and while very professional also truly down to earth and caring. Before and after my surgery I felt I was very well taken care of and it made the healing process easier. Every time I had a concern or question the staff and Dr. Williams were wonderful. After a couple of weeks when I started to see results and throughout the next year I became more and more satisfied with the results. Dr. Williams knew exactly what I wanted and he made my face look amazing, even better than I had imagined. I am truly grateful to have had him as my surgeon and would never consider going anywhere else. He truly is the best and a year later I am still very grateful to him and his practice. It truly changed my life. You cannot put a price on self confidence and I feel like a new person.

Very Happy :) - Albany, NY

Dr. Williams did an extended weekend lift on me and the results are awesome. I am very happy and it was worth every penny. If you don't like your neck and jowels, book a consultation. He knows what he is doing and you won't regret it. I see a huge difference in my profile and am much more pleased with it now.

50 and Feeling It! - Latham, NY

Dr Williams was professional, kind and very patient as i asked many questions. We discussed my surgery several times and everything went exactly as he said it would including the recovery. I loved that he offered to let me speak with a prior patient who had the same surgery. That was very helpful. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

23 Year Old Female - Albany, NY

Dr Williams' level of genuine concern and skill was evident from the first appointment thru the entire course of being under his care. He made it clear his goal was my total satisfaction, and after the initial procedure I had two additional visits to tweak things and ultimately things were perfect. He never rushed you and made you feel you were the most important patient he ever had. He is genuine and caring and I couldn't be more pleased with him as my physician.

Look Like Myself Again. Latham, NY

I was tired of my saggy neck and wanted to look like myself again. I am very pleased with the results. The change is very subtle so I don't look very different, just better. Dr. Williams and all the staff were kind, thoughtful and supportive throughout the whole process. Whenever I had a question or concern I was able to either to be seen in the office or get an answer right away.

Thoroughly Pleased. Latham, NY

Growing up I always thought the shape and size of my nose never fit my face. Dr. Williams made a nose that naturally better flatters my specific facial features to completely change the way I look. If you are considering seeing Dr. Williams for a rhinoplasty I definitely encourage you to do so. He took the time to really listen to what I wanted and answered all the questions I had. It is...
