As a busy Atlanta high school teacher with a full schedule, Pam dedicates most of her time to her career. After an accident at home left her with a broken nose, Pam turned to a personal friend who works as a nurse at Northside Hospital’s surgical suite for help. Her friend recommended the surgeon who worked across the hall from her, Dr. Fernando Burstein.

At first, Pam visited Dr. Burstein for nose surgery to restore proper breathing and facial appearance. During the consultation, other procedures were discussed to help Pam achieve more balanced results. After further discussion and consultation, Pam decided to have a brow lift, lower blepharoplasty, and a chemical peel in addition to rhinoplasty (nose surgery).

Dr. Burstein performed rhinoplasty to fix Pam’s broken nose and to remove a bump on its bridge that she disliked. Rhinoplasty can be both a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure because aesthetic concerns can be addressed while restoring the nose’s breathing functions. Next, Dr. Burstein performed a brow lift to address lax skin on her forehead and a lower blepharoplasty to remove under-eye bags that contributed to a tired appearance. Finally, Pam received a 30% TCA peel to improve skin tone and reduce the appearance of any surgical scars.

Throughout her procedures, Pam said it was really special to have  her nurse friend close by in the hospital for support. She was impressed with Dr. Burstein and his medical team for their attentive patient care during her recovery and even now when she visits for appointments. Pam is very happy with her results and says, “His work is awesome. I feel more like my age now. It’s great to be able to breathe again and have a refreshed look that many teachers don’t have.”
