I appreciated the time taken in the initial consult. I was given accurate information and encouraged to make decisions that fit for me.
I was treated with much respect and care throughout the whole procedure. No question was too trivial. Everyone was warm and helpful. I would highly recommend this clinic. more
I had always hated my nose from the time I hit puberty and it started to grow. When I was 16 years old I was doing major research and finding out everything I needed to know. By age 17 I had found the doctor I wanted to do my procedure. That doctor was Dr.Buonassisi. His reviews were awesome and when I talked to him for the first time he seemed so genuine about the whole thing and really made... more
I had a rhinoplasty a few months ago by Dr. Denton. He is fabulous. I had seen a few surgeons for consultations before seeing Dr. Denton but something didn't seem right with any of them. After googling Dr. Denton I decided to give his office a call. Dr. Denton's receptionist, Trish, was so warm on the phone and was so patient answering all of my questions before I even booked an... more
I wanted to decrease the bump on my nose and cautiously searched for a doctor online. Online reviews and websites were really helpful in feeling confident about setting up an assessment appt. with Dr. Andrew Denton. The online imaging tool on his website was excellent as well to help me really see what was possible - it was very motivating. more
I had a wonderful experience getting my new nose. The staff, including Dr. Denton, was friendly and informative and the actual surgery date happened quite quickly after my consultation. It is one year after my surgery and I am happy with the outcome; it looks natural and not like I had it "done." I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone I know to his practice. more
After a lifetime of loathing my bumpy nose, I finally had it fixed by Dr B in the spring of last year, and it’s been by far the best thing I ever did! He’s extremely professional and knowledgeable and presented me with totally realistic expectations, which ultimately were surpassed. I felt comfortable in his office and, much like others have mentioned, it always seemed as though I was... more
Before I had my nose job I had two friends give me fair warnings. They each said;
“Whatever you do, don’t freak out”
Of course I wouldn’t. I’m a calm, rational and happy person. Like, me, freak out? take a million selfies? Spend hours on the internet researching? No, never, i’m FAR too laid back.
But guess what? I freaked out.
I started having trouble breathing…has something... more
I just had the surgery earlier today, hence why i selected the "not sure" (although I'm very confident in my surgeon skills) but as i still have my nose and chin covered, i can't really see anything to comment about
the reason I'm doing this surgery was since i was a little, i always didn't like some of my face profiles, always trying to avoid a certain camera angle or even when walking with... more
Like most people who have rhinoplasty, I had been thinking about it on and off since around the age of 10. It was something I thought about to some degree every time I looked in the mirror or at photos of myself (one look at my "before" pictures and you'll understand why). The only reason I never did it before was because, frankly, I couldn't afford it (and I wasn't about to go... more
My nose has always been crooked. I've never broken it or anything, it just grew that way. These last 3 years i've had trouble breathing and saw an ENT doctor in Vancouver. He said that after the Septoplasty (Procedure covered through medical that would just fix the breathing) my nose would look wider then normal. This alarmed me! I've always been self conscious of my nose and so this got me... more
I stongly recommend Dr. Denton for rhinoplasty! My skin type is thick and oily on t zone, so it took some time to heal and I had to get some steroid injections, but now that it's been a year since my surgery, I can say that I am really satisfied with the result. My nose turned out just as I wanted! It's very cute and thin and looks very natural on my face :) Thank you very much Dr. Denton! more
I'm a physician and have had rhinoplasty, specifically dorsal hump reduction, performed by Dr. Buonassisi. I am delighted with my new nose. I did a fair amount of research into the procedure and local surgeons. I chose Dr. Buonassisi because of his knowledge and expertise, the before and after pictures, other reviews, the fact that he carefully listened to what I wanted and took the time to... more
Hi im 29 years old and i decided to finally fix my nose after hating it since I was 12 . I know it's not the ugliest nose and everyone close to me always said I was nuts for having a problem with it but their opinion doesn't matter as I'm the one looking in the mirror every day, so im doing it for myself .
As I got older I also noticed my nose also growing and I felt it was getting to big... more
So today I went to my first rhinoplasty consultation! I'm 19 and just moved to Vancouver from california. My nose (specifically, my profile) has always bothered me. It's not that bad but I got my dad's romanish nose and I just want it more refined and feminine and smaller. I'm just scared since it's not THAT bad now what if I hate it after the surgery and wish I'd never done it? I know that... more
Hi RealSelf users! After years of being displeased with my nose, and bullied in high school for it, I finally decided at the age of 20 to go through with my rhinoplasty. I found Dr. Buonassisi through this website. I read through all of his reviews and booked a consultation with him a few weeks later. The consultation was amazing, Dr.B explained to me every possible thing that he could do with... more
I was born with a huge nose. And when I say huge I mean HUGE not only did I have a huge bump on my nose, but my nose was also very wide. Strangers or those who did not see me on the regular would often think my nose was swollen. I decided to finally go in and get a consultation with dr Denton in Vancouver Canada, he explained the procedure to me and even showed me a computerized image of what... more
I've been putting off writing this for quite some time. Like most of the reviewers on here, I always hated my nose. I remember the first time I learned what a nose job was. In 2nd grade, one of my best friends, Stephanie (who also disliked her nose) told me about her older sister getting a nose job. 'You can do that?!' I thought. 'It's FIXABLE?!' I've wanted one ever since.
At that point, no... more
My rhinoplasty took place on May 13/14 and even by saying that I’m overjoyed with the results is an understatement. Dr Buonassisi is a gifted surgeon with an impressive demeanor that immediately eliminates any anxieties surrounding your surgical procedure. He has improved my quality of life and I couldn’t be more grateful for his beautiful work. He is a true artist. The staff at West 8 are... more
Decided to undergo a Rhinoplasty in 2012 with Andrew B Denton. Normally, I'm not the type to write a negative review but I felt it was important to discuss my experience with Dr. Denton as it may be useful for someone considering a Rhinoplasty.
I wanted to have a natural looking nose post surgery, I looked for a very skilled board certified surgeon in the Vancouver area to perform my first... more
Dr Buonassisi is extremely expert in his profession and professional in his manner. Moreover he is a real nice doctor. I’m glad I was fortunate enough to have Dr Buonassisi as my doctor. I am a physician and have worked with many doctors. I strongly can state that Dr Buonassisi is one in a million. He is a professional and compassionate doctor who listens to you and addresses all your... more
