    Best Revision Rhinoplasty surgeon?!

    I've had my nose done 6 times due to various unforseen circumstances... and also having gone at a Dr Ellenbogen who completely botched my nose up, and so I've been trying desperately to get my nose back to how it was since I went to him!.. Unfortunately to no avail so far though. The last surgeon I went to was Dr Toby Mayer in L.A though I'm still not happy and need an implant taking out he put in.

    I basically see alot of websites where the surgeons make cute/curvy noses into straight ones. Well when I used to be happy before I went to Ellenbogen!... my nose was cute and curvy, more upturned, now its a bit longer and I just want it back to how it used to be. I'm so wary though and really don't want to have it done more than this one time. I'm in so much debt and just want to be happy again with how I look like I once was.

    I only went with Ellenbogen in the first place because some excess bone grew back and I wanted it removing, though he totally changed my nose. I wish I'd never been to him now it was the worste mistake I could have made.

    I just need a surgeon who is really really skilled with revision sugery and who has experience with creating cute noses, and mainly who listens to what the patient wants!

    Does anybody know of anyone, its so important to me.

    Re: Best Revision Rhinoplasty surgeon?!

    If you are in california, the two best revision specialists are Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Rollin Daniels. I am actually scheduled for surgery with Dr. Nassif. I haven't heard anything negative about his work at all, and was wondering if anyone had ever had a bad experience with him. The best revision specialist would have to be Dr. Dean Toriumi in Chicago though from what I have heard and read on these boards. Both Toriumi and Nassif seem to be the top revision specialists to see in the country. I guess it would all come down to where do you live and are you willing to travel. Toriumi is in Chicago as I have already stated, and Nassif is in Beverly Hills. Hope this helps.

    Cool Re: Best Revision Rhinoplasty surgeon?!

    Genna: I'm very confused but have some suggestions. Your post on 10/18
    cancelled surgery & U got your $ back? & then shortly U have had another procedure by Dr. T in Los Angeles? U should always go w/ your gut! If any
    Dr. doesn't seem extremely interested in answers & conscerns, ditch them.
    Surgery of any type always has risks & you may need healing time so U don't scar. Always research Dr. through the Medical State Board & even the Superior Court for lawsuit files. Some may even be on line depending on State
    U R in. Ck. their education & how long they have been doing specialty. A
    few courses in plastic surgery can make a foot surgeon eligible to do face
    surgery. There R specialists & education profile at Board. As U know, healing
    varies & more re-shaping will mean more tissue disturbance. We all heal in
    different ways. U should also know that Dr's exchange Dictation letters along
    w/ patient records. This is a letter to alert other Dr. of personal opinions,
    state of mind, sometime made up stuff to sound great. I know this because I
    have 12 copies that said I need a psychiatrist, begging for someone to help
    dx me. 8 yrs & 27 Dr's later, I finally have a large gap in my skull where the
    right Dr. was found & removed a large tumor. He obviously wasn't a player.
    I'm retired from working w/ MD's. There R alot of great Dr's & then some that
    you'd love to attack. I knew their education's but if they have a puffed ego,
    grab yourself & run. Make a small list of questions/concerns & don't say to
    much abt the last guys. Call places for `free' consults. Sometimes a makeup
    specialist can help in the meantime w/ a few shadowing tricks.
