    Exclamation Revision Rhinoplasty and Richard Ellenbogen (Please Please help)

    Well ive had a few rhinplasties b4.And was never satified and the last doctor i went to (3rd) screwed it up (more).I went wrong by not knowing that theres a diff. between a Rhinoplasty doctors and Revision Rhinoplasty doc's. So my mom's friend knows a bit about it and gives me a few names of rhinoplasty revision "specialist" and Ellenbogen came up. I consulted a few months ago and felt he knew exactly what to do and knew exactly what my prob. was without me really telling him.I have a really good feeling about him(although 12k alot of money but theres no price on beauty i say) Well im going to him next week for a discussion of what we wanna do/setting up a surgery date. But....

    I have searched these boards high and low and have found a bit of negative responses from people about him. This makes me feel un-easy to say the least, I guess i just want to hear what you guys think i should do/what would help me to get those "results" i want. So please discuss him help me..Cause i want my FOURTH surgery to be the FINAL. Thank you and please respond and help. Live in California BTW

    *BUMP UP* please dont let this fall of the page

    (BTW i have been hearing lots of good about this "Paul Nassif" guy and
    after looking at his work it looks pretty damn good i must say. So if any one can give me a price he'll charge for a rhino revision, please reply )

    Hey Alar Groove,

    You can call Dr. Nassif's office and speak with Jade his patient care coordinator. She will be able to give you a range on his prices. He wont be able to tell how much your surgery would cost until he examines you. He will know at that point how LONG your surgery would take. I am one year post op with a very difficult revision that he performed for me. It was my third surgery. You will be glad that you consulted with him. Believe me, he is great with all aspects of the face. He is becoming more and more known for his rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty work. Good luck. Any questions dont hesitate to ask.

    Take care,

    Rosanna

    Re: Revision Rhinoplasty and Richard Ellenbogen (Please Please help)

    Well i just had a consult with Nassif today.Well whoever said he's a super nice guy must have been on acid or somethin >.>. I told him what i thought and he got right in my face (lol not like he was gunna fight me or something) like jesus it seemed like few inches or something. Anyway got that real close and told me SUPER BLUNTLY i was wrong(about the way i wanted it) and i am very young and y ive had so many rhinoplasty. (i can see some of this was true but...) This made me feel like a piece of ****.. .
    Then..

    He said alot of things that made sense about how what i wanted would not work cause the chance of the surgery being a failure would be too great. And he had a good vision of what we could do "realistically".Then after it he "kinda" said in a way he was sorry for the way he said all that to me^^
    but he said that he said it cause he's looking for a almost 100% succesfull sugery and it needed to be said.

    So overall i think he's real good. It's just he couldve said all that above what i needed to hear in a more "nicer" way. But oh well it's gunna be like 13.6k and its gunna be almost 100% SCREW UP PROOF.

    take it easy..peace

    (lol he mentioned all these message boards and laughed about it and said he looks at em sometimes oh yah theyre receptionist "Jamie" is so freaking hottt lmao)

    AlarGrooves101, what is the difference between what you wanted and what he wants to do for your rhinoplasty?

    Re: Revision Rhinoplasty and Richard Ellenbogen (Please Please help)

    Ok first off i havent responded in a month cause well ive been vacationing in Oklahoma for a month (real cool vacation spot huh? lol)

    Anyways, I have the exact same prob. you had (well USED to have) i have a collapsed right valve as well and wanted the left side to look like it(originally before he told me that was "no good"). Basically what you just said was exactly how my first visit went. Well hmm... wierd using a computer again..lmao. Anyways, i have a appointment with him again tommarow were he will "Thuroughly"(<-----oh god thats not spelled right ) take a look at me and plan surgery date..etc. So its all good i hope he works a little on the other side that isnt collapsed some (the left side).

    13k is a bit steep but hey who can put a price on your face? especially since this guy doesnt mess up and does pretty stellar work.

    -Take it Easy All

    AlarGrooves, how did your second consultation go with Dr. Nassif? Did you feel comfortable with his plans for your surgery? I, too am looking for a revision specialist and am still not sure who would be fitting for the surgery? I hear so many different things about each surgeon, so I'm not sure who I can trust with the surgery.

    Re: Revision Rhinoplasty and Richard Ellenbogen (Please Please help)

    It went absolutly good! We, talked for about half hour or so about the game plan what he was going to do, recovery, etc. I have full confidence in him. My surgery is in 2 weeks and im counting the days(and kinda nervous too lol). Hm74, I know what you mean about everyone says "this guys good"
    and the other says "no this guys good". It can be very CONFUSING but trust me when i say this i say you should go to this guy like me.

    His rate on screwing up(god forbid) is the lowest around the US and he is just really really good at doing revision rhino's.(its over 60% of his clientel) I dont wanna sound like im advertising for the guy(like i prob am)but im just saying this to another human being like me so that they dont have to go thru anymore (excuse my language) ****! and get a great nose and move on with theyre life! I say choose him without a shadow of a doubt. well im ranting but i feel strongly about it (hehe) ; so that's all i got to say.

    -take care

    Re: Revision Rhinoplasty and Richard Ellenbogen (Please Please help)

    I am in the same situation as all of you. I have had 2 previous nose surgeries and i am still not satisfied with my nose and I am looking for a GOOD revision rhinoplasty doctor. Hearing good things about Dr. Nassif, I went for a consultation and well I didnt feel too good about him. I felt like everything he told me was a "put on" like he was trying to satisfy me even though the things he was saying he would to do my nose was ridiculous. I felt like he was just talking to buy me over for a 12k nose job. I felt he was not being honest with me. So i decided to not go with him and look further for other doctors. A friend of mine was also in the same situation and went with this doctor, his name is Dr. Raj Kanodia. I do not know how well he is, so I am going to look into him. I just want to trust the next doctor on my nose, and I felt Dr. Nassif was not trustworthy. Just my 2 cents.

    Re: Revision Rhinoplasty and Richard Ellenbogen (Please Please help)

    Im sorry, but i couldnt disagree anymore with you(well at least the way MY consults went with him)

    1."I felt like he was just talking to buy me over for a 12k nose job."

    Well with me it felt like he was telling me this is the way i do it(which is usually for the natural,100%screw up free) and if you dont like it you can go somewhere else.

    2."I felt he was not being honest with me."

    Again with me he was very honest on what he could do and not do. He didnt promise anything that he couldnt achieve and he let me know that.

    3."I felt like everything he told me was a "put on" like he was trying to satisfy me even though the things he was saying he would to do my nose was ridiculous."

    lol i dont even know what you meant there^^^^...confusing

    Well im sorry thats the way you feel about him and maybe you just got him on a bad day or something? Oh and im not too sure about the Kanodia guy (he was on dr.90210 tho) he does noses but about the whole revision thing i dont know if he's *HIGHLY* regarded.

    -best wishes the alar (that sounds dumb) lol
