"I had 2 previous rhinoplasties with a different surgeon. Dr. Matt Bridges fixed the problems from the previous surgeries and gave me EXACTLY the nose I wanted."- C.R. / Google / Feb 02, 2020
"I had rhinoplasty by Dr. Bridges on November 20th 2019, almost 2 months ago. I had a great experience as a whole. Dr. Bridges was easy to talk to and his staff were all very nice and helpful. Dr. Bridges work speaks for itself. He delivers natural balanced results based on each persons individual features and goals. I am very pleased with my result thus far and I’m excited to see the progression of my nose as it continues to heal. I was very nervous about having the surgery and being put to sleep but St. Francis hospital did a great job at putting me at ease and making me feel as comfortable as possible. I would recommend Dr. Bridges and his staff to anyone interested in cosmetic surgery."- J.S. / Google / Jan 17, 2020
"Matt Bridges is an excellent surgeon with the best bed-side manner. My daughter fractured her nose and wrecked her septum. He explained every bit of the process and made us so comfortable especially since she never had surgery! Her nose looks amazing and she is able to breathe, sleep and smell again. He is the absolute best there is!"- A.A. / Google / Oct 15, 2019
"Dr. Bridges performed surgery on my nose after having MOH'S Surgery for two basal carcinomas, one on each side of my nose. This was a new experience for him he stated. He had never seen this situation before. He performed plastic surgery on both areas at the same time. Obviously his expertise came through because the results were excellent and I am very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon, he is very thorough in explain in layman's terms the procedures."- H.L. / Healthgrades / Sep 04, 2019
The BroadBand Light technology can be performed in Dr. Bridges' office without any anesthesia. After the patient’s consultation, a team member will develop a treatment plan with the various BBL applications to target the patient’s skin problems (acne, lesions, etc.). The technician will adjust the settings for each condition that is being treated before passing the laser over the patient’s clean, dry skin, while the eyes are protected from the light. The treatment time will vary based on the amount of treatments being performed and the size of the area being treated, but most BBL procedures take under one hour.
What to Expect
After the treatment is completed, the technician will apply a soothing ointment to the treated skin and go over the patient’s aftercare instructions. The patient will be able to leave as soon as they want after their appointment and resume their normal activities. Patients will see some results right after their treatment, but results will improve over the next 2 – 6 weeks and most patients will get their best results from repeated treatments. Patients should talk to Dr. Bridges about pre-booking a series of appointments to ensure they get the most out of their treatment.
