I had a nose job when I was 14, way back in 1971. I was devastated at the result. I got the ski-jump nose. Too short, sharp, and up-turned, so that you could see up my nostrils. I learned to live with it and I've had a fine life. But I've always been sad that I no longer looked Jewish--in fact I didn't look like anyone in my family or anyone I knew.

Dr. Mehta is an outstanding doctor. My revision rhinoplasty was very complicated due to a botched result of my primary rhinoplasty that I was extremely unhappy with, but Dr. Mehta gave me a great result.

It's been a long journey, but Dr. Mehta really came through with excellent results from my surgery.

After a consult with Dr Mehta, my fears were put to rest. He and his... more
I had a rhinoplasty when I was 20 and it looked OK when the surgeon took off the splint but over the next few weeks it started getting more and more pinched and twisted. I couldn't breathe and was always kinda self-conscious about it. I'm in my 30's now and am planning to get married this summer. I wanted my nose to look good in my wedding photos so I decided it was time to get it... more
I had the revision rhinoplasty because of a not-so-good result from a previous rhinoplasty years ago. I was dreading getting it done because a previous doctor scared me off by telling me the surgery would be costly as well as extremely difficult to perform.
