Are you a patient of Tanuj Nakra, MD, FACS?
Dr. Nakra is the one of the best Dr.s I have known. He is genuinely kind and caring and has awesome pre and post surgery manner.
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.
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.
