    Question Need Revision Rhinoplasty

    So I am in need of a 3rd revision rhinoplasty. The last doctor I went to built up my nose from what the first doctor did, but it's got a lot of problems and doesn't look good. I consulted with a few doctors that I hear are good from these message boards.

    The first plastic surgeon I saw was Nassif. After speaking with him, I didn't feel he was really listening and felt like he tried to rush me out. I saw his before and after of my nose on his computer and it was the opposite of what I told him I wanted. He didn't explain what he was going to do in detail either. After I left his office I felt so uncomfortable and felt like we didn't meet eye to eye.

    The second surgeon I visited was Andrew Frankel. I felt he went over things in complete detail. He was totally in tune with what I was saying and I felt confident he knew what I wanted. He spent a lot of time with me and I left thinking to myself...okay now I feel like someone knows what they're doing.

    I went in to get a third opinion from Dr. Rollin Daniels. He also spent a lot of time with me, but his approach and Dr. Frankel's approach were totally different. Dr. Frankel said he would use rib, but Dr. Daniels said he wouldn't because it would make my nose bigger and wider. I'm very petite and small framed, so I can understand why he said that. He then suggested I get a chin implant where the other doctors did say anything about. He said he would do it for free.

    I started to look more into these doctors I went to and found some information about them that left me feeling like I'm back at square 1.

    The most surprising was reading on different boards how Dr. Paul Nassif promotes himself using these message boards! I hear he not only advertises heavily on-line, but also he and his staff write things pretending to be either patients or regular people giving advice.

    I then also read about how Dr. Daniels and Nassif had some negative reviews on RateMD that were somehow taken down...hmm.

    I then read about a few people that didn't like Frankel's surgeries.

    I feel like everytime I find a doctor that sounds good, I then read something bad. I want this to be my final surgery. I want to be sure that I find the right person. Has anyone used any of the docs I listed or does anyone else have any suggestions on revision docs? Now everytime I read something good about a doctor, I wonder if it's true or if it's one of their staff writing something. EEK! Very frustrating!

    Re: Need Revision Rhinoplasty - Saw Nassif, Frankel and Daniels

    Dear Friend,

    I had a revision Rhinoplasty. I also feel that I was rushed to pay the company, sign agreements and during consultation. How long was your consultation, if I may ask you? Primarily, all I wanted was a slight improvement to a small part of the nose but all defects were seen by him (even invisible 'defects')- and price escalated to about 23,000K. I do not feel we were on the same track with my likes & dislikes. Result: I cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry!!!!big time. Now I do not have money to bring the nose shape to my likings & improve my breathing problems.

    My suggestion is: when you go for a consultation keep on asking and asking your questions until you are assured that they are fully answered and that the surgeon is capable to meet your goals-remember, rhinoplasty is a surgery which bears its complications on your health so make it right at the first place as afterwards you would regret it.

    Re: Need Revision Rhinoplasty

    Hi,

    I didn't see what name you wrote because the administrator took it down I think. I guess we can use initials since we're not using names. Dr. N consult was horrible. My Appt was at 11 and I was seen at 12:30! He had some intern from a medical school sit in with us for the consult. The actual consult lasted about 15-20 minutes. I would expect a lot more time since he was so late with me. Anyways...after I left his office, I knew in my gut that he wasn't the right one for me. So maybe you can give me the initial of the doc you went to if it was one of the three.

    Hang in there...I know how frustrating it is to experience something like that. You have to go out and continue having a fulfilled life. Don't let this stop you from living a full life.

    Dear Jazzmine,

    I cannot mention doctors' names on this forum...sorry..but do a bit your maths, you are on the right track! Even my consult lasted 15 mins. And, unfortunately, I went for the surgery.

    Sorry administrator, but I did nt mean to promote or banish or what ever by the previous post. Actually, thank you for removing the name as I did nt realise myself.
