    You should add to your list:

    Dr. Davis in Miami, Florida. I have heard from several people who had revisions with him that he literally "saved" their noses. He is both an ENT and a plastic surgeon. I have seen a few of his noses on a different message board and they look really good.

    Best wishes.

    Re: Rhinoplasty gone bad who can help?

    I also had a bad rhinoplasty. I am also currently looking for a revision. I've heard that Dr. Becker (Sewell, NJ) is the best on the east coast. Everyone is raving about him all over the internet. plus he teaches courses at U-Penn (excellent school) and has his own sinus center. Im dying to go see him, however he doesn't take my insurance and I hear he's real pricy and I just don't have the money right now I hear ya about the breathing... that's my problem as well. I would just like to be able to breathe normally again. Stay away from Dr. Tobias (NYC/NJ) and Dr. Romo (NYC). Tobias did the original rhinoplasty, and I had a consultation with Romo but heard awful stuff about him afterwards, so I backed out. Good luck and keep us posted.

    The two most well known surgeons for revisions in Calif. are Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Rollin Daniel. I met with both Dr.'s and ultimately chose Dr. Nassif. He performed a very difficult revision of 4.5 hours for me. He has a great eye and is used to dealing with all kinds of different nose problems. My revision came our very well and all my nose issues have been corrected.

    Take care,

    It might be worth knowing that Dr. Becker was trained by Dr. Toriumi. I'm guessing that that means that they are both good. I know Dr. Toriumi is good because he fixed my nose. I am very happy now. All the insecurities and wonders about my nose are finally gone. (I had a primary and first revision by Dr. Tobias - NJ).

    Re: Rhinoplasty gone bad who can help?

    thanx so much for everyone's advise. i have my appointment with dr. tobias and tabbal in ny. and i plan to see dr. toriumi in chicago and dr. nassif in california. i am just worried about the distance. i would really rather be close to home, but it seems like everyone is recommending doctors outside of ny. is there any other good ones??

    There arent very good reconstruction surgeons in NYC... I had a botched rhino with tabbal, and Ive been traveling to consult. The only doc in ny is quatela in rochester.
    He is definitely worth a consult.

    I have also had an unsatisfactory rhinoplasty, with my nose looking more asymmetrical than even before two surgeries. I live in Europe and was wondering if anyone has advice on who the best revision surgeon on this side of the Atlantic might be.

    Dr. Toby Mayer hands down. I had 2 unsuccessful surgeries, one by Jack Gunter. Dr. Mayer pretty much performed a miracle for me and I would urge you to at least have a consultation with him.

    Hi, good luck. Having rhinoplasty was the worst mistake I've ever made. I heard of Dr. Steve Hoefflin in Santa Monica. I got his name as a referral from one of the Extreme Make-over surgeons. I wish you the best.
