"Dr. Westreich was able to straighten my nose, and made it look more balanced on my face through rhinoplasty, and open my nasal airways." "Liked him right away." "I no longer have a deviated septum, I can breathe, and simply put, my nose is perfect."

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Great Surgeon - Manhattan, NY

Dr. W is dedicated to giving the best possible care to his patients. Not only does he care about improving his patient's aesthetics, but he focuses on improving the functionality and quality of life. It is very rare to find a plastic surgeon who is as equally skilled at both.

Love my New Nose - Dr. took the time to fully explain the procedure - New York, NY

Dr. took the time to fully explain the procedure. He also has excellent communication skills. I was confident going into my procedure, I felt like he wasn't going to promise an unrealistic outcome. I also believe he is very current with his techniques and research - very involved in the medical industry.

What a Positive Experience!

I had a septoplasty and a rhinoplasty performed by {Edited: Provider information appears above the review for registered users} and I can honestly say that I could not have had a more positive experience. I have had a septoplasty done before by a Dr. in MN, and had a really negative surgery, so much so that I had to have it again! The staff was so gracious and helpful, and I always felt...

Introductions - New York, NY

Dr. Westreich is an amazing person, and an immensely skilled surgeon. Choosing to undergo surgery is a very personal decision, and Dr. Westreich, Lauren, and Ossie made the process as easy as possible. Everyone was attentive, helpful, and kind. I selected Dr. Westreich because he is double-board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. He is experienced, and undeniably, an expert in his field. Furthermore, he made me feel safe, he is a patient advocate (I had a few problems with my insurance covering the surgery), and he clearly loves his job. Having a septorhinoplasty is long and a difficult journey (because of the healing time), but one that has been well worth it. My results are truly remarkable. I no longer have a deviated septum, I can breathe, and simply put, my nose is perfect. I really couldn't be any happier. I am beyond lucky to have chosen such a phenomenal surgeon for my septorhinoplasty. I highly recommend him!

Day 1 Post OP - New York, NY

I already knew of a plastic surgeon who came highly recommended. I reached out for him, when he honestly informed me that he doesnt really specialize in rhinoplasty. He told me to contact Dr. Westreich ( he highly recommended). My friend and I booked a consultation- and loved him. I immediately felt comfortable and at ease with him- so confident in Dr Westreich, that my friend and I didnt even feel the need to see other doctors. We booked the surgery for March 11th.

Amazing Doctor - Manhattan, NY

Dr Westreich did an amazing job. He went above and beyond. After weeks of preparation, he said there was much more damage to my nose than expected and he corrected everything that needed to be done. I can finally breathe after all these years. I highly recommend him! Made everything as painless as possible.

Excellent Surgeon - Manhattan, NY

Dr. Westreich really takes the time to make sure you understand exactly what is going to happen and has an excellent demeanor. He is very calming and very nice person in general, and an excellent surgeon. Would definitely go to him again! The outcome was great. I actually had to stop in after the procedure as I ripped my own stitches and he was available right away and able to put me at ease. He answered all other questions I had. He has a very trustworthy personality and really cares.

5 out of 5 stars FaceTite

Simply the Best!!

Dr. Weistreich and his staff are excellent. Very friendly, funny and answer any questions you may have. I have been going to Dr. Weistreich since he was in the Brooklyn Office quite a few years ....and would not go to anyone else. I just had the Facetite procedure and the fractoral and could not be happier with my results .. If you want the best then look no further, because Dr. Weistreich is

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty


Amazing plastic surgeon! I did my rhinoplasty about 6 weeks ago and I already love how my new nose looks, very natural. Dr. Westreich also did a lot of internal work due to the fact that I had many sinus headaches and I haven't had any headaches so far! I had a question about my nose and he responded to my email efficiently and then proceeded to make sure everything was okay the next day! He...
