I will be having a rhinoplasty combined with a septoplasty with Dr. Evan Ransom on Oct 7th, 2015. The rhinoplasty is to remove the bump on the bridge of my nose. The septoplasty is to correct a crooked septum. I also suffer from frequent runny noses which Dr. Ransom explained is due to an excess of tissue in the nostrils. That along with my snoring are expected to go away after surgery! more
Like everyone else on here, I was never fond of my nose. It wasn’t hideous, but the bulbous tip and over-arching of my nostrils had bothered me long enough that I finally decided to do something about it. I had my surgery done by Dr. Chung on June 25th, 2015 at Willow surgery center in San Francisco. Dr. Chung was so patient in answering all of questions and incredibly thorough in explaining... more
Words cannot describe how happy I am with my results. I have had both a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty with Dr. Bermudez and it was the best decision I have ever made. I feel better about my appearance and have gained so much confidence. My goal was to have natural looking results and Dr. Bermudez worked with me every step of the way to achieve the best outcome. His practice incorporates... more
It is my pleasure to write this enthusiastic review for Dr. Evan R. Ransom and the San Francsisco Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery.
On January 7, 2015, Dr. Ransom performed on me a rhinoplasty (correction of deviated septum, shortening of nose, and thinning of nose tip) and lower blepharoplasty in a single intervention. I am very pleased with the results of both... more
Dr. Maas is the best! I had wanted a natural nose job for many years. Wish I had it done sooner. After many consults in the Bay area a friend recommended a consult with Dr. Maas after a family member experienced great results. Office staff are great too. He was the only surgeon at the time who had invested in the latest technology to show me pictures of my new nose after the surgery. more
I chose Dr. Behmand after extensive online research, and based on before and after pictures. If I was going to spend the money, I wanted a great looking nose, and his rhinoplasty before/after pictures are just beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised by his very friendly office staff, who were so kind to my me and my mother. Dr. Behmand's bedside manner is impeccable, you can tell he really... more
It's March 2nd and I already have 2 consultations this month to find the right Doctor. I'm just worries and have so many questions to ask. I have been told that breathing problems can be a permanent side effect. Anyways, one appointment is with the same doctor that did my breast augmentation. I will definitely have a date by April. I have uploaded photos to get an idea of what I'm looking... more
I had always disliked how pointy my nose was from the side, but as I aged it was getting more bulbous in front too. At 39, I decided it was now or never. After 4 consults, I chose a local Rhino specialist, who is highly regarded. All of the Dr's said how I was an ideal candidate, straight forward case, etc., including mine. My goals were a better profile, smaller tip and overall smaller... more
I went in for a consultation months ago and I'm finally going through with the procedure next week (Wednesday, Feb. 4th) I used to hate my nose as a teenager, particularly from the side/profile view. It's always been a confidence buster for me. My older sister, as well as my aunt, have had a rhinoplasty due to a deviated septum long ago - but we were all 'blessed' with a Italian nose with a... more
I have never liked my nose. It must of been kids in school making fun, maybe its the fact that Ive never been able to breathe through it properly. Either one, I know I have never liked my nose. Its slightly crooked with a bit of a hump. Being a Pinterest addict, I constantly see pictures of weddings. A couple kissing on their wedding day. I would never want to take one of those pics with this... more
Dr. Dino Elyassnia is a phenomenal Plastic Surgeon! My whole experience from beginning to end was wonderful. I went in for a nose job for both cosmetics and also to fix a deviated septum that has been affecting my breathing for some time. Every step of the way I was impressed. Both the surgical nurses and anesthesiologist called me ahead of surgery to go over everything leading up to the... more
My motivation was two-fold, functional and comestic. I wanted to fix my deviated septum and be able to breathe better through my nose; I often woke up dehydrated from mouth-breathing all night. Secondly I wanted a more proportional nose to the rest of my face. While a large nose is masculine, with soft features, I felt my nose stood out way too much and was too big feature on my face. More... more
Dr.Evan R. Ransom has been attentive and understanding in goals and outcome achievement. Warm and welcoming atmosphere in his office, including his assistant Dee, made it possible to feel comfortable discussing the procedure.
Professionalism and care made my decision easy.
They even sent me flowers after the surgery, followed up with phone calls and follow-up visits on the weekends to ease... more
I have been waiting to have my nose fixed since I was 15 years old. Growing up my nose was fine but in my teenage years things started to look a bit crooked and I developed a hump on the bridge. My right profile has always bothered me a bit more since the hump is quite noticeable.
Since then my family was just as confused as I have been about how it got to be that way. My parents have always... more
I love my results and do not regret one thing! Dee, their receptionist, and Dr.Ransom were both very warm and friendly. I love how Dr.Ransom really listened to what I wanted and made that reality happened. He told and showed me through pictures with some editing of what he can do realistically on my face, which ensured me on what the results may be after the procedure. My recovery was no... more
So just like everyone else, I was never much of a fan of my nose. I never noticed it much until I got into jr. high and always thought I was pretty, but that my nose kinda killed it for the rest of my face (lol). Thankfully, I didn't go through much teasing but I have always been very self-aware and conscious of it. Getting a rhinoplasty was always in the back of my mind but it wasn't until... more
I had been thinking about getting Rhinoplasty done for about two years, and decided to take the plunge this summer. Dr Behmand was the second doctor I had a consultation with and I felt comfortable with him right away. He explained the procedure very thoroughly and answered any questions I had. After the consultation I knew he was the doctor for me, so I went ahead and booked my... more
Dr. Kim did an amazing job on my nose. It has been one year since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results. Everything was great from my first consultation all the way to my last post opt appointment. What makes me so happy with the result of my nose is that although Dr. Kim made some significant changes, I still look like myself. In fact, I only told close family and friends... more
I couldn't be happier with the work Dr. Ransome has done. I had rhinoplasty to correct a downward pointing nose, and some crookedness that had bothered me my whole life. I was terrified that this would change my appearance drastically, but he was SO careful to get just the right fit. My mom even thought I had just lost weight! more
My face was disfigured, because of my nose. The tip of my nose was leaning on my skin and I looked terrible. I am older and trying to get a job, but people would always see my nose problem. My nose had a prior Rhinoplasty from another surgeon and Dr. Place fixed this. This surgery has given me my life. more
