Helped me every step of the way through a traumatix experience

I was referred to Dr. Zimm after having my nose severely broken in several places in a stage combat accident in October 2016. He gave me an initial closed reduction surgery in the following weeks, but it was clear this was not sufficient to repair the severe damage done by the accident. As an actor, I was very concerned about how this would affect my future career. Dr. Zimm worked closely with...

I was so impressed by Dr. Zimm's and his team's patience, care and friendliness. Dr. Zimm, Jen and Evita did a lot to ease my nerves and walk me through the process. He made the steps clear and the procedure comfortable. I'm breathing better already and would highly recommend his practice.

Best Doctor Ever

Dr. Zimm is THE BEST! Everything about my experience exceeded my expectations. My result is so much better than I hoped for and I have been really impressed with the level of care and particularly post operative follow up. My only complaint is that I can't make Dr. Zimm my general practitioner, my dermatologist, my dentist, optometrist and every other type of health care provider I might need!

In one word - PERFECT - New York

I am absolutely thrilled with the results of Dr. Zimm's work on my face. Based on excellent reviews I had very high expectations and Dr. Zimm exceeded them. I am extremely selective and careful with my choices when it comes to health and beauty. I wanted a subtle, tasteful rejuvenation and a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. Zimm was able to give me an expert advice and what is more important - we...

Facial Aging Treatment Philosophies

People have different philosophies on how they actively manage facial aging. Some wait longer until they are much older, preferring to allow more significant age related changes to occur prior to treatment. This group will likely need surgical intervention such as a facelift to achieve their desired improvement which will be a more dramatic change. They may prefer to wait, not wanting to have regular "maintenance" visits. Others prefer to start treatment earlier prior to severe aging...
