Let me start off by saying, I am not one to write reviews or ratings, but I thought that Dr. Sadati really deserved it if it meant others would take my advice from personal experience. I used this website to find him. I actually did a lot of research online before deciding to have surgery on my nose. I have always had trouble breathing and I just dealt with it over the years. I read about a... more
I could not write a review positive enough to adequately convey how pleased I am with my experience with Dr. Elam and his staff.
I had been dreaming about fixing my nose since childhood; I spent years researching the process online, reading blogs and looking at pictures. I was hoping that eventually I would outgrow the fixation - my nose wasn't completely terrible, and I thought I would just... more
Hello! I live in california and i been researching rhinoplasty for a long time. I've researched so much doctors. So recently i went to my doctor and he said that i have a deviated septum. I also want to have a whole new nose . My nose was not always like this. Growing up i had a perfect nose . In elementary school i got hit in the nose twice with a soccer ball and a dodge ball *ouch* lol. But... more
I've been wanting this since I was 14. I have this bump in my nose and it makes my pictures look very awful. I'm going for the rhinoplasty next summer hopefully. It was honestly a very hard decision to take, but what made me comfortable to go for it are the pictures of other patients' results. If you are having the same problem, just be brave enough to get what you want :) I'm flying all the... more
I am 5'1 and 90 lbs. As you can see from my befores, I think I had one of the most difficult noses to work with on this website. My Plastic Surgeon is a MIRACLE worker. I couldn't be more pleased. He over-rotated my nose so that when it naturally drops it will be in my desired position.
Thank you for all of your personal messages. The most common question I am getting is... more
I have been thinking about a nose job on and off for a number of years, and at 38 I finally feel ready for it. Can you believe it took that long?
I’ve been known to be pretty sensitive, so something like this is a big deal to me. It's not just the physical, but emotional transformation that I have had to prepare myself for, one that I have not taken lightly. I’ve had to work at it and I... more
I first met with Dr bandy at the end of March 2014. Prior to our consultation, I was really impressed that they gave me a survey that allowed me to explain what was important to me when considering a plastic surgeon. This survey allowed them to provide me with the exact information I wanted and more at the consultation. This was a really important step in the beginning for me because I knew... more
I used to swear I'd never go under the knife for the sake of my appearance. However, after having a successful upper blepharoplasty last summer, I suddenly started really examining my face and realized that I just didn't like my nose, and realized that I *could* change it if I wanted to. I don't hate my nose, but I definitely don't love it. Growing up, family always commented on my "pug"... more
I absolutely love my new nose, I couldn't be happier with the results. At first I was hesitant to have the procedure done because I was afraid I wouldn't like the outcome. I was also afraid of the pain following the procedure. There was barely any pain; the only discomfort was some nausea, but only the day after.
I took a long time to make the decision to get rhinoplasty. My new nose is... more
I met Dr. Sadati and team and was immediately impressed with their bedside manner. The prep and post surgery care was phenomenal. My nose not only looks perfect but I can breathe. Its been life changing. I highly recommend Dr. Sadati.
My nose stuck out so far it cause my lip upper lip to protrude . Not only did the surgery take down my nose it reduced my lip which greatly enhanced my profile. more
I have been to see several doctors over the years...mostly to gage cost and other information regarding the procedure. When asked what I didn't like about my nose, I got kind of awkward. I think it's difficult to discuss this with a stranger without feeling like you're being silly or petty. I didn't want to sound like a dumb girl and I was really self-conscious about my perceptions.
I have had sinus problems for years. It started to bother me so much I went and saw an ear nose and throat doctor. They found that I had a bad deviated septum which was causing the sinus infections and I needed surgery. As I googled ENT specialists in my area to get 2nd and 3rd opinions, I read online that a lot of people did cosmetic changes while fixing their septum. I have never had a big... more
So I've been wanting this for a long time, unfortunately don't have much support from my family or friends which sucks, cause they tell me I'm pretty and that I don't need it, cause perfection doesn't exist and so on. I know that but it's something I've been wanting for a very long time and I'm ready! 5 more days let this new adventure start! I will be doing a rhinoplasty with chin... more
Dr. Robert Kessler was terrific . My whole life I've hated my side profile. I told Dr. Robert Kessler about my issue, and he assured me that he could fix my nose and chin. He was very patient and explained everything to me . I was uneasy at first, but he put me at ease. The procedure went incredibly well and I now have the nose I've wanted for 18 years. The results are so natural and beautiful... more
I had always wanted to get my nose done since I was about 13. When I was 22 I decided, "Why not!?" I had the money saved up and was sick of not liking what I saw in the mirror. I did a lot of research online and ultimately decided to go to Dr. Sajjadian. He was the only doctor I saw who literally didn't have a single bad review. Also he seemed to specialize in Rhinoplasties which was very... more
I was sick of getting sinus infections every 3 months and needing allergy medication/Nasonex just to breathe and sleep properly. I was also a little unhappy with how my nose looked after breaking it several times. I wasn't really planning on getting the Rhinoplasty, but once I met with Dr. Sajjadian his pricing was very reasonable. He ended up doing an incredible job with all 3 procedures. I... more
I had considered a nose job and/or boob job for the last 20 or so years and finally decided that in my mid-thirties I'm not getting any younger and to go for it. I made the decision in my mind that I was going to do it but part of me thought that I was a crazy person to go ahead with plastic surgery. I researched doctors extensively and the only doctor I was truly comfortable with was Dr.... more
I've always hated my nose. I've had a bump, the septum was shifted due to a break, & my tip was so ugly. I finally decided a rhinoplasty was something I wanted to do. Looked around for Drs. Came across Dr. Sajjadian and seen he is well known in the OC area for rhinoplasty. Decided to make an appointment for a consultation & I'm glad I did. more
I've always wanted to get rhinoplasty since I was a teenager. My nose
was a little big for my face and it had a hump on it. I never liked my
profile because my nose would just stick out. I chose Dr. Sajjadian
because I liked his work and he had all positive reviews. Going into the
surgery I was a little nervous because I wanted a nose that looked
natural on me and since I'm a guy I didn't... more
OK, so I have wanted a rhinoplasty for quite sometime now, but I never found a doctor that made me feel as comfortable until now. He is triple board certified, LOVES noses, and he's actually an ear, nose, throat doctor also. So, Monday, March 10th I will be getting a Septoplasty to correct a deviated septum, a Rhinoplasty, and possibly a chin (the smallest.) Can anyone tell me what sort of... more
