Are you a patient of Jonathan Pontell, MD, FACS?
Updated on 26 Jun 2012:I consulted with five reputable facial plastic surgeons in hopes to find someone who could fix the sloppy mess my first surgeon did to my nose. After consulting with Dr. Pontell, I knew right away that he could fix my nose. He is a true artist and great at what he does. He was great throughout the whole process and overall he is a kind man that takes interest in knowing his patients, rather than some doctors that don't spend much time with you. Although I'm a bit swollen, because the cast just came off, I can say that Dr. Pontell gave me my self- confidence back. I now have a nose that fits my face and looks like a nose I was born with.
After visiting five very prominent doctors in our area, I settled on Dr. Pontell. It was an easy decision once I met him and we discussed the procedure and I viewed his photos. He is blessed with "good hands". He was very attentive to my concerns and my expectations were fully met. I would not hesitate to use him again.
I interviewed 4 other doctors before choosing Dr. Pontell and I know I made the right choice. He has been very supportive every step of the way and I could not have asked for a better result. I want everyone to know what an amazing, skillful surgeon he is.
For all the reasons mentioned in my review. Dr. Pontell is an artist. He was the only right choice for me, had an instant connection with him.
I love Doctor P. He is the best! I did so much research and talked to so many people that have had rhinoplasty performed by him before choosing. I made the right choice and am so thankful to him for giving me my new nose! No complaints here!
My surgery was at the end of January, and off the bat I could tell Dr. Pontell is an incredibly exceptional surgeon. Not only was there no packing (I was very concerned about this since I've been plagued with this annoying whopping cough which Dr. Pontell was so great at keeping contact with me to ease my anxiety about leading up to surgery) there also was barely any bleeding at all! I only kept changing my gauze pad out of habit from my 1st surgery. There was literally only 2 drops, I'm still amazed at how there wasn't a lot of blood post-op. Not only has my breathing improved SIGNIFICANTLY, but I can already tell that the bridge of my nose is not crooked anymore. The tip is still swelling quite a bit and I kind of feel like the old guy in the movie UP, but this is certainly expected since Dr. Pontell said he did a little tip work because he noticed a small bump. I know it's all in my head-- like when you go to the dentist and get novacane and it feels like the side of your face looks all crazy, but you actually look normal to everyone else. Dr. Pontell is also very conservative, he loved that I had realistic expectations and especially when I said "I just want to look like a better version of myself." My top fears in life are mice, heights and ending up with a Michael Jackson nose. So I knew Dr. Pontell was the surgeon for me when we went through the before and afters and everyone looked great and not overdone at all. Oh yeah I also might have said something about my phobia of "triangle nostrils" which is such a dead giveaway for rhinoplasty. Not that there is anything wrong with a little improvement! Sorry this review has gotten ridiculously long but when you are getting a procedure as significant as this, kind of life altering, you really only want the best in the business. Dr. Pontell is so gentle and caring. My sister who picked me up after surgery said "He is so nice! You can tell there is no ego whatsoever" after he came and talked to her about my procedure -- and she is not one to give out compliments frivolously. Not only is Dr. Pontell extremely gifted, he literally makes you feel like you are his ONLY patient that he is operating on. He has been voted numerous times as the best surgeon on the Main Line so I know he is very busy. The amount of care pre/post-op was outstanding. I would highly recommend Dr. Pontell to anyone considering a facial procedure.
