Through word of mouth and my own research, I came across highly recommended Dr. Mahjouri in Minnesota. I travelled from Europe to USA to meet him after an initial conversation and consultation via the Internet. To say thank you would be an understatement. I am in awe of your skills as a surgeon and would like to thank you and all of your staff for your professionalism and caring attitude from... more
I had been wanting to fix my nose since I was a Junior in High School. I don't have a terrible nose, but it was always a little to big for my face and my nose also had a big bump in the middle of it. I went to another consultation at another clinic in MN, but I did not like the doctor at all and he made me feel like I was stupid. I finally heard about Dr. Gervais at Minneapolis Plastic... more
I have uneven nostrils that make my nose look crooked. The cartilage and bone all feel straight to me just my nostrils are different. One has a hump inside that give it a weird shape. Can anything be done about this? I don't want to change anything else about my nose, would I still need rhinoplasty? Would I need to go under general anesthesia? more
Surgery is 40 days out. I know it seems far away some days but with payment, labs, pre-op all coming up, it might fly by. I'm getting really nervous about my recovery because of the several procedures at once. But want to be done with it and can only get one lump of days off. So I will be out for 25 days. I'm pretty confident my surgeon and I are on the same page, but anxiously waiting to get... more
I chose Dr. Prischmann to perform my nose surgery primarily to correct a deviated septum, and also to reduce a prominent hump. From the start, her office staff was wonderful about communication with me and answered all my questions before I even made an appointment for a consultation. I live in Iowa, about three hours from her office near Minneapolis, so it was nice to feel like my questions... more
Dr. Joe completely turned my life around. After hearing great things about Dr. Joe, I decided to book a consult. He knew exactly what needed to be done, and gave me all of the details about what he was planning on doing. Had my breathing issues fixed along with cosmetic work. Needless to say, love my new nose, and I love being able to breath! It complements my face perfectly and I love it more... more
I could not breath though the left side of my nose due to a broken nose that I had when I was a boy. Dr Joe helped me breath again. I can sleep without waking and I do not snore anymore!
I met him at his office. Everything was explained and he has a very kind and attentive way about how he approaches medicine. I could not be more happy with him and his staff. 5 stars all the way. more
Dr. Moghaddam made me feel very comfortable from the moment I met her. She is honest and know's exactly what she is talking about. Trusting your surgeon is very important and I couldn't have been placed in better hands. She explained every step of the way, made sure I was aware and used her skills to give me an amazing end result. The overall surgery went smoothly and recovery was fast &... more
If your looking for a plastic surgeon in the Minneapolis area, look no further. I had been to almost 5 different surgeons to find a surgeon for me. The moment I walked into the office and met Dr. Ness I knew that he would be the one! He was very informative, thorough, and had a great bedside manner. This was such a sour subject for me so it was hard for me to talk about it. Dr. Ness made me... more
I did my homework and went both routes to fix my broken nose, insurance with an ENT and plastics with Dr. Tholen out-of-pocket. I was a difficult case having rosacea and early stage rhinophyma along with my deviated septum from the broken nose. To make a long story short, the ENT doctor was not confident he could fix my breathing and shape my nose correctly to look normal again. Insurance... more
I have been looking on this website everyday and realized that other peoples posts have really been helping me as I feel that this has always been a sensitive subject and I would like to help someone else who is going through the same thing.
For as long as I can remember my nose was always an issue for me. Kids used to make fun of me all the time even one of my cousins used to call me... more
I have had insecurities about my nose since I was about 6. I also have breathing issues and other functional issues with my nose. I thought why not get everything fixed at once. I will have a septorhinoplasty on June 9th and I am terrified! I also am a mom to a toddler, so that should be fun! :)
I'm three weeks out for surgery and more terrified than ever. It's becoming "real" as I send... more
I am 32 and have wanted to get rid of my dorsal bump... aka witch nose since middle school. It's genetic, and my grandmother has the same nose. My family always said it was part of who I am, and my nose shouldn't define me. I agreed to a certain extent, but always felt self conscious, hate getting my picture taken, and know I would feel more confident without it. My husband has always told me... more
I've always wanted rhinoplasty. I don't remember the first time someone told me my nose was "large", but it's happened throughout my life. In jr high....even as recently as my sister in law telling me she hopes her kids don't get my nose. Not sure why people are so insensitive? I would never think to say such a thing to anyone about a physical attribute. My brother always teased me too...... more
I am 17 years old and I am very serious about getting rhinoplasty. I have a bulbous tip nose. Some people tell me it's cute, but I never believe them. Mostly because I don't see it that way. At all... Anyways, The bridge of my nose has a pretty good small appearance from straight on. I also don't have a hump on the bridge from the side view. The problem is the tip of it though... It's wide... more
I am a 26 year old female and I am 3 months post op rhinoplasty. I am so very depressed with my results. This has been one of the biggest regrets of my life. I had a very bulbous tip and my surgeon performed a closed rhinoplasty, taking off too much in my opinion. I have already looked into revision options. My only concern is that now I have a spot on my nose that may be basil... more
Following my much anticipated rhinoplasty, I am left with a crooked nose, bulbous tip, and a visible "notch" on my nostril from a suture. Dr. Joe simply said "Noses are hard." and "I'm sorry" during my appt. to discuss my disappointment. Definitely regret choosing him. I wish I didn't buy into his staff's excessive recital of his accomplishments; they certainly did nothing to help my case... more
My nose (bridge) got broken in a fight in year 2000, and that was 2nd time it got busted... I was 19 y/o then. Since then I was thinking of straightening the bridge and narrowing the tip as it was on the larger side, so my doc offered me to do that as well "while i'm at it".
So the surgery went fine, I went back and removed the cast 8 days later. I liked what i was seeing. Few days... more
I felt very comfortable from the beginning working with Dr Tholen. The good reviews online led me to his practice. He listened, answered all my questions, explained the risks, and reassured me that we could get the results that I wanted. The staff was understanding, professional, and very accommodating. Now after 3 months, I can say that he gave me very attentive follow up care. After... more
