I became a patient of Dr Zimm in September of 2013 out of necessity- I had a very bad sinus infection and I had to see an ENT urgently. Right away he gave me an antibiotic to take the swelling down and scheduled a follow up visit. Unfortunately the infection was very severe and I ended up with another round of antibiotic. Then I saw Dr. Zimm again for another follow up. Looking at my medical... more
My nose had always bothered me from the time I was in middle school. I always contemplated rhinoplasty but thought I was being vain and that it shouldn't really matter. As I found myself in my late thirties with the financial means and motivation to make a change, I decided to talk to my good friends and family about the possibility of rhinoplasty. I was really amazed that nobody judged me... more
Over the past few years I had noticed that my nose looked bonier and more bulbous at the tip than in the past. After looking at some photos taken over this past summer it looked a mess to me. The neck lipo was an after thought; I had been trying to dodge the double chin look in photos for a couple of years and when I went to Dr. Joseph's office and saw my profile, I was horrified! I asked... more
For years, just like many others, I had always hated my nose. I had been thinking about getting a nose job for quite some time even though I am young. When I met with Dr. Joseph, I knew right away he was the doctor for me! He's hilarious, such a sweet man and he sings everywhere he goes which just brightens up a person's day. He isn't only a good doctor, he's a good person... And you can tell... more
I have wanted rhinoplasty since I was 12. Had I done it any earlier, I may not have found Dr. Joseph and his wonderful staff. These people are genuinely kind people and have a vested interest in your best outcome. On the day of my surgery, there was an issue with the person that was to release me from the hospital. Needless to say, I was stressing out. Dr. Joseph rectified it immediately... more
I am now a little over one year out from my rhinoplasty with Dr. Ciardullo. I waited until now to post a review because I wanted to see full results before posting before and afters.
All in all my experience with Dr. C was positive. I didn't have a terrible nose before, just a slightly droopy bulbous tip and a small bump on the bridge. Being a perfectionist, I wanted a more refined face so... more
I found Dr. Westreich after looking for a surgeon over the course of several months. Originally, I had went to a different office but I went for a second opinion when I felt as though the first doctor wasn't really listening to what I had to say. I didn't like my nose, but I also didn't hate it. I wanted to change it but not drastically so my goal was to find a doctor who would give me a... more
Ever since I was 10 I've always hated my nose. Pretty much the same story as so many people on here, but never thought I'd have the balls to go through with doing anything about it.. Petrified of even having my blood taken, I was fortunate enough later on in life to have a few very special people come into my life to give me the courage to finally do the things cosmetically that would make me... more
I just want to state at the outset that although I am unhappy with my rhinoplasty outcome, I do not regret choosing the surgeon I did. There are a plethora of testimonials on RealSelf to Dr. Ciardullo's skill and craft as a plastic surgeon, and I have every confidence that he truly is gifted. Or else I wouldn't have flown over 1,500 miles to have my procedure done by him. That said, I truly... more
I do not have enough good things to say about my recent rhinoplasty experience with Dr.Ciardullo. I have always hated my nose (big italian nose with a bump on the bridge and a bulbous droopy drip) and i had been searching for the "right" surgeon for several months. A friend of mine recommend i go see Dr.Ciardullo and I can honestly the results are incredible! No more bump on the bridge or... more
I moved to the U.S from South America at a very young age. Growing up in a new country was difficult. As I became older and older I started noticing certain changes in me. I was always sensitive about my appearance, primarily my nose. No matter where I went Ive had to look down or to the side because I did not like the way my nose was shaped. Having a bump in my bridge area made it difficult... more
Happy Westchester Lady:
I am more than pleased with my surgeries. Dr. Slupchynskyj's skillfulness has resulted in no one noticing my suplift or even the eyelid surgery. I actually went in for Rhinoplasty procedure because I have had breathing problems all my life and have never actually taken care of having procedure done but decided to finally get it done. So while I was getting that... more
My experience with Dr. Joseph was very positive on all aspects: initial consultation, surgery, and all other appointments pre and post surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph to anyone looking to have a more natrual nose and looking for the best surgeon.
Dr. Joseph asked the right questions to understand what I wanted my nose to look like, which is not overdone and still natural, but more... more
Experience of a lifetime. I should have walked away... I heard his patient before me screaming in agony..but I went any way like a sheep... He shortened and chopped of my tip.. he did a perfect job to give you a pig nose..My nose was so disfigured that I had one revision and still need another to correct the job.. I woke up in the surgery and could hear the machine spinning and grinding on my... more
To anyone out there who is considering making changes I would like to share my experience with you. First of all I am not one who generally shares experiences on line but I feel this time its important since undergoing change of this nature can be quite stressful for most. Like most others I googled some surgeons in the tri-state area and then narrowed it down to a few. I did this like most... more
I was unhappy with the appearance of my nose for quite a while and had been contemplating getting a rhinoplasty. After doing some research I found Dr. Eric Joseph, he came highly recommended in his craft. I made the appointment and showed up at his office not knowing what to expect. I was actually very nervous going in for my consultation, but after spending some time with Dr. Joseph I felt... more
I was very pleased with the entire experience. Dr. Zimm was very thorough before the surgery, he explained the medical steps that would need to take place and reveiwed post-op medication procedures. He prescibed 3 different medications including a herbal healing, anti-biotic, and a pain killer. I'd like to describe the herbal healing medication as the 8th wonder of the world!!! It's a new... more
I am very pleased with the open rhinoplasty / septoplasty performed by Dr. Joseph. He is very personable and easy to talk to; he listened to and answered every question I had about the procedure and did an excellent job as a surgeon. He has a fun bedside manner that was refreshing.
My breathing has always been sub par due to my crooked septum, my nose was slanted to one side a bit, and I... more
I had a great experience with Dr. Ciardullo and my rhinoplasty results are fantastic. My surgery was October 3rd and am now 1 month post op and am thrilled. I had small bump removed from my bridge, my tip refined and projected up more. My recovery was smooth, with only a few unexpected issues. I look like me but better So I never actually hated my nose. I dabbled with the idea of getting a... more
I was didn't like my nose from the profile. I had a slight bump and always felt that my nose was too large for my face. The recovery for the surgery was slightly uncomfortable, but very bearable. The bandage comes off in a week, and my swelling went down within a few days. If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, I highly recommend this surgery. It was basically painless, and the... more
