Are you a patient of Tanuj Nakra, MD, FACS?
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Show More Dr. Nakra is refreshing to be around. He took time to understand my concerns and was a good listener. He specializes in oculoplastics and facial cosmetic surgery. He seems to appreciate his patient's individual aesthetics. You can tell that he wants his patients to be happy with their outcome and comfortable with the whole process. After researching his bio and meeting him, I would say that he has sophisticated techniques and a well developed eye. When I arrived for the surgery, we re-discussed the surgery and my expectations. The nursing staff was very caring. Even though the post op period is uncomfortable and a little scary, Dr. Nakra was available to answer any questions that I had. Bottom line: my nose looks great!
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Show More Dr. Nakra was extremely thorough in discussing the asymmetrical changes that I hadn't seen before my consultation. His careful word choice made me feel extremely comfortable. It isn't easy being told that something isn't symmetrical on your face. His approach was delicate and I appreciated him being honest with what had changed and what he could do about it. Of course, he gave me the floor to discuss with him what I didn't like but honestly his expertise is what I really wanted to hear. The consultation was worth even making the first step. He explained in detail what would change, how long it would take and what the outcome would be. He was extremely helpful in answering my pre op questions in a timely manner. Everyone goes through that anxiety prior to a elective procedure and I felt comfortable that I had a physician who made me feel like I was his only patient. Surgery day was a blur, but it was honestly everything that happened after surgery that made this experience worth it. Dr. Nakra called my personal cell phone the night of surgery and the next afternoon to discuss any issues I might have. He took time out of his personal life (surgery was on a Friday) to reach out, which gave me confidence that I chose the right physician. My post op period has been great. Limited pain after surgery, swelling gone within a month and the end result is better than I expected! Friends nor family could pinpoint what had changed, but the overall consensus was positive. He made my bulbous tip defined, smaller and symmetrical - exactly what we had planned in the first consultation. I recommend Dr. Nakra to anyone thinking of having a rhinoplasty. He is truly an artist. If you can get in to see him for a consultation, it will be worth your while!

Show More I originally only wanted my asymmetrical tear troughs fixed and so I looked for an oculoplastic surgeon in Austin, TX. I was nervous about someone other than an oculoplastic surgeon filling in the delicate eye area.
4 out of 5 stars Restylane
Show More As I noted in my review, "My Dr's lucidity on the subject of under-skin anatomy of the face/eye/tear-trough region really made me feel in good hands". He was extremely patient with my questions. When I had run out of them and I asked what else I should be asking- he did not hesitate to suggest that many patients asked about "worst case scenario complications"- and then he listed them. He mentioned having read a medical account of blindness resulting from a direct injection into a blood vessel- though he had never seen this happen and didn't know a physician who had. He also mentioned a case of skin necrosis- I think from an artery injection- but again noted it was extremely rare. That he was so quick to speak of the worst-case scenarios- however statistically unlikely they are- greatly impressed me. He could have easily ended the conversation without a mention of the rare but nevertheless serious risks- and I wouldn't have noticed the difference. I appreciated very much this kind of honesty. Though I was pleased with the results of the procedure- it was because of his *candor* that I opted to write this review.
