Is nose job cheaper to do out of the country?

Is nose job cheaper to do out of the country?

Cheaper out of state: Certainly it is tempting to find a great price for cosmetic surgery outside of this country. However, you are essentially risking your own well being. It is best to view surgery as a journey that continues after your surgery rather than something that ends right after surgery. You should be as informed and educated as you can whether or not your surgery is in this country or not. ...Read more

Dentist tooth scaling , Water comes out of the scaler . I want to know is it important to clean the inside of the water pipe system between patients ? . My dentist say all you need is to change the tip of scaler and not worry about the water pipes

The water: flows much too quickly and interchange is much too rapid to foster the development of micro-organisms which are significant. Those bacteria which do "inhabit" those pipes are NOT human pathogens! NOT TO WORRY! Hope this is helpful Dr Z ...Read more

If I can't get out of the house or to the pharmacy due to floodwaters, is it safe to cut pills in half so not to run out of pills?

If I can't get out of the house or to the pharmacy due to floodwaters, is it safe to cut pills in half so not to run out of pills?

It depends: I am assuming that you have no choice as getting more medication is not an option. If a pill is scored with a line to make it easier to break it in two , then it is designed to be broken in half if needed. Extended release pills, often labeled ER, XL, release slowly into the blood stream over 12-24 hours. Cutting in half can put all of the medication into your system at once, may be dangerous. ...Read more

Is it worth going to the doctor for a sinus infection? Better to just ride it out? Going out of the country in 2 days, will a steroid shot help?

Is it worth going to the doctor for a sinus infection? Better to just ride it out? Going out of the country in 2 days, will a steroid shot help?

Yes: Usually I would urge you to wait a few more days to see how it progresses and I would rarely prescribe an antibiotic before a 10-day waiting period. But since you will be leaving the country where seeking medical care may be difficult, it is only prudent for you to get this checked out before your departure. ...Read more

I need a lot of dental work done! the problem is that i'm extremely afraid of dentists! how much of the work will he be able to accomplish in 1 visit?

Depends: Often times too much work at a single visit with sedation puts time pressures on the dentist resulting in less than quality work. I would recommend you see a dentist that will treatment plan your case to give you quality care in the number of visits necessary. Developing good repoire along with sedation that works for you is more important than minimal visits. ...Read more

Can't afford cosmetic fixes so what do you think of the Truth Vitality Lux Renew. It is FDA approved and i need a professional opinion because of cost?

Can't afford cosmetic fixes so what do you think of the Truth Vitality Lux Renew. It is FDA approved and i need a professional opinion because of cost?

Too Early To Know: Yeah, well, the FDA also approved thalidomide and Vioxx. The point being you've got to scrutinize the claims carefully and cross check their research sources. My guess is that it may help some people but not all (a red flag itself). So then it may be a "why not" try it. $250.00 may be "worth a try" compared to thousands of dollars of cosmetic surgery or other products. I am obviously skeptical... ...Read more

How is tooth shaping priced? Id like to have the shape of some of my teeth corrected, but would like to know how the cost is usually calculated. Is it broken down by tooth, or is the overall time send used? .

How is tooth shaping priced? Id like to have the shape of some of my teeth corrected, but would like to know how the cost is usually calculated. Is it broken down by tooth, or is the overall time send used?


.

There : There are several options when it comes to reshaping your teeth. It can be a very simple procedure such as some contouring of your natural tooth, composites, which adds material to your natural tooth or even veneers which would be the most intricate procedure when it comes to reshaping your tooth. There have been many times when i've simply touched up a patient's tooth while he/she is in the chair for another procedure so there is no fee for the touch up. The fee for a composite typically ranges between $200-400/tooth depending how much of the tooth needs to be fixed. Veneers (depending on where you go) can range between $1000-2000/tooth. I would recommend visiting your dentist for a cosmetic consult to see what is the best option for you. ...Read more

Is it safe to use a breathing problem from the nose as excuse for a nose job and it be paid for?

No, that would be: Insurance fraud. No reputable surgeon would agree to that, so run if someone would! only the breathing component is "covered" and the cosmetic portion is self-pay. Sorry. ...Read more

I get really stuffed up in the city when the air is full of pollution. Is there anything that help with this?

I get really stuffed up in the city when the air is full of pollution. Is there anything that help with this?

Several treatments: If you are allergic (runny/itchy eyes & nose with sneezing), you can take antihistamines like Claritin or zyrtec. If this is non-allergic stuffiness, you may have relief with a steroid nasal spray (rx from your fp). If neither of the above, you may simply get relief by using a saline sinus rinse on a regular basis. You could simply be reacting to the pollution in the air, & that needs washing out! ...Read more
