Our office is following all recommended guidance from public health authorities including the best practices for hygiene, infection control, and medical professional team health to mitigate risk of COVID-19 as we travel on the road to recovery. We have the right people with the proper training to ensure a healthy environment for everyone at all times. Social distancing techniques and appropriate protective equipment will be in place. Our efforts to provide you the safest and most effective care will be an ongoing priority during these evolving circumstances, and we are confident in our ability to see patients and provide the best care that you have come to expect and deserve.
Implementation of new safety measures
A COVID-19 specific protocol has been implemented that includes new countertop dividers, rearranged waiting rooms to allow for greater social distancing, and thorough surface cleaning and exam room sanitization between patients. You will have the opportunity to wait in your car before your appointment and get text notification to come into the office to limit the number of people in the waiting room. Our physicians and staff have been provided with personal protective equipment (PPE). People entering the office will also be asked to utilize a mask or homemade covering scarf, as well as to clean hands thoroughly. Automated hand sanitizer dispensers can be found throughout the office.
The safety of our patients and the communities we serve is our number one priority. We want to reinforce that our office is not a venue for patients with symptoms consistent with a significant risk for COVID-19 infection. Patients are being properly assessed for COVID-19 risks (by phone and in person) prior to entering any of the clinical or treatment areas. This assessment includes non-contact temperature checks and answering a COVID-19 specific questionnaire. You will be asked to leave the facility if you feel unwell, have a fever, cough or shortness of breath. Certain answers to the COVID-19 questions may also result in your inability to receive treatment in our office.
Ensuring the safety of more vulnerable patients
We are taking every possible precaution to ensure the safety of our most vulnerable patients. We are encouraging patients that are 65 or over or have pre-existing medical conditions to schedule appointments early in the day and we will also give special consideration as to whether their problem warrants leaving their homes at this time to come to the office. For any patients who do not feel comfortable being seen in the clinical setting, we will arrange for virtual visits when possible.
The Plastic Surgery Group is offering virtual visits to any patient who does not want to come to the office in person. These tele-medicine consults will be done on cell phones or computers for discussing symptoms, questions and concerns so that the most appropriate treatment plan can be developed. New patients to our office can also have virtual consultations, with plans for an in-person evaluation when the current circumstances related to COVID-19 have improved. Our highest priority remains the safety of our patients and staff.
MEET THE SURGEONS
“I am proud of the reputation I have established within my field. The years spent refining my surgical skills are all part of a plan I made long ago…to be the very best. Today, I am dedicated to providing unsurpassed care for my patients – and they can sense it.”
“I wanted to be a doctor so I could help people feel better. I wanted to be a plastic surgeon so I could repair people’s bodies, in ways big and small, not just to improve their looks, but to help them align their physical appearance with their internal perception of themselves. I consider it an honor and a privilege to serve my patients, and I never take for granted the ability to change people’s lives for the better.”
Dr. Rosen and Dr. Ablaza have been chosen Top Doctors 2020 in Montclair Magazine
MEET THE PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS
Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure for women seeking to increase the size and volume of their breasts. The Plastic Surgery Group offers the latest saline and silicone breast implants, including the newest Ideal Implant®, to accommodate a variety of patient preferences. Breast augmentation with PSG is not exclusively restricted to volume enhancements, but can be combined with breast lifting surgery to give a fuller, more youthful look. The experienced surgeons at PSG in New Jersey are dedicated to meeting all your cosmetic breast enhancement goals.
DRAINLESS & PAINLESS TUMMY TUCKS
Individuals who have had massive weight loss may experience an undesirable amount of abdominal skin laxity. Sagging abdominal skin can also occur after pregnancy. In either case, loose abdominal skin lacks the elasticity to shrink back into place. For more than a decade, the Plastic Surgery Group has been performing tummy tucks without the use of drains for improved patient comfort and improved efficiency. Also, PSG utilizes a long acting anesthetic during tummy tucks that minimizes discomfort after surgery. If you’re living in or near New Jersey or the New York metro area and are looking for ways to improve your abdominal contour, contact PSG today for trustworthy care.
Even when living a healthy lifestyle, you may have fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. The Plastic Surgery Group offers liposuction to New Jersey residents struggling with reducing fat in these “problem” areas. Our Board Certified plastic surgeons can sculpt and refine the problematic areas of fat. Liposuction removes excess fat underneath the skin to improve body contours. We’ll work closely with you to determine the best plan to achieve your goals.
The Plastic Surgery Group is a CoolSculpting Certified practice treating patients throughout New Jersey. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical solution to reduce fat in various parts of the body including the chin, upper arms, flanks, abdomen and thighs. The cooling technology utilized at PSG targets fat cells and permanently destroys them, causing the devitalized fat cells to be reabsorbed by the body. The non-invasive procedure is a safe alternative to other corrective surgical procedures for fat reduction with a heightened level of efficiency. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and no down time away from work or exercise routines is required.
LIP FILLERS & FACIAL FILLERS
With aging, new creases and volume loss in the face develop. Also, many people naturally have thin lips or develop thin lips as they age. PSG offers lip fillers and facial fillers at our New Jersey location to help patients achieve a natural look to their lips and more youthful facial contours. Our Board Certified plastic surgeons can enhance the lips and add volume to the face through injections. Contact us today to schedule a consultation for fillers for your face and lips.
The Plastic Surgery Group provides patients with a variety of options for facial rejuvenation to improve signs of aging. The facelift procedures available will give you a rested, refreshed look that also turns back the hands of time. Our plastic surgeons will reposition soft tissues, tighten underlying muscles and get rid of excess skin to improve the facial contour. PSG is committed to addressing every need of our patients to ensure the highest level of satisfaction with our facial rejuvenation procedures.
Introducing Skin Type Solutions
The best way to optimize your skin’s function, health, and appearance is with the proper combination of skincare products. But with so many products on the market, it can be almost impossible to choose the correct ones…That’s where Skin Type Solutions comes in.
