I had 4 horrible Rhinoplasty, 3 of them are revisions using ear cartlidge performed by the same doctor in Beverly Hills!!! Now I'm looking for somebody who specializes in ASIAN NOSE BRIDGE/TIP. My nose was flat and has no bridge. Now I have an ugly brige/crooked looking nose. I'm very depressed...

I'm VERY depressed after gone through THREE Rhinoplasty including the revisions with the same doctor in Beverly Hills, but ALL THREE have been horrible. I'm now desperately looking for a Rhinoplasty Revision Specialist and Paranasal Surgeon in the U.S. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

1.) Dean Toriumi (Chicago) 2.) J. Regan Thomas (Chicago) 3.) Jack Gunter (Texas) 4.) Toby Mayer (Beverly Hills) _______________________________ The above are my preliminary picks for my 4th revision. The surgeons above are in random order. PLEASE HELP ME...

Hi does anyone know about a rhinoplasty specialist in nose augmentation? I´ve had 2 rhinos and with the first one de Dr. cut my tip (entirely!!) I have no projection at all. On top of that he blamed the results on my body (yes.....). Then I had revision with another surgeon and I know he tried dearly but my nose looks awful! I was thinking Dr. Paul Nassif in Beverly Hills. Does anyone have a comment or other sugestions? Thankssss!!

Dean Toriumi is famous for making big noses. I myself need augmentation too. I'm considering a doctor in Maryland. His name is Kofi Boahene

Thank you all for your sugesstions! it´s soooo confusing and I am so unsure as it would be my 3rd intervention and I really really just want it to be my last one. I never heard of Dean Toriumi. I will check him out. did you go to him yet? Can I ask you if your nose is naturally "short" or as a consequence of surgery...

I have not seen Touriumi but have gotten him off my list of surgeons to visit after hearing MANY horror stories about him. Look into Kofi Boahene he specializes in ethic rhinoplasty. Thomas Le is also in the same are as Boahene and is worth a short. They are both FACIAL plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Don't go to a plastic surgeon for a nose revision. Make sure they specialize in the face. If you are interested in Boahene send him an e-mail. He answers it himself. It's in his website

Hi RozeRoze, Thank you for your quick reply, I was just thinking about ethnic rinoplasty doctors! so it´s good you mention it :) That´s one of the reasons I was thinking of going to dr. Paul Nassif in Beverly Hills... ok, I will check them out. You´ve gone to see them it seems...? how do you feel about them? Thanx!!

I was going to see dr. Nassif but don't like his way of augmenting the nose. He cut cartilage up and makes it into a "burrito" and slide it on your dorsum.... Dr. Le and Boahene actually carve out the cartilage and add it to your bridge.

I have not seen them in person but have done a lot of research and have it down to those. If you are in the California area I would consider seeing dr. Andrew Frankel. I'm going to see Boahene and Le in late August (that will be my 8 month mark which is appropriate to start consulting. Otherwise they won't know what your nose looks like. Didn't want to make the trip in vain. I'm traveling from Texas to Maryland

Ok, wow, that´s a long trip. I am in southern Ohio/KY. Will do a bit more research and then start consulting too, because I´ve been looking and researching for about 1 year now, on and off. but that will be prob. mid/late sept. if I decide to visit them since I´m about 9 hrs drive... looking forward to knowing about your impressions and opinion when you go visit. :)

I went to Toriumi for a consultation, I flew quite a way to see him as I had heard really great things about him. This was about 6 years ago. The site was a bit different then, I think you could see maybe a bit more candid reviews. I thought that the office was nice, the wait was not too long. I thought that he took a lot of time with me and was not judgemental. the office did a skin analysis in a machine and took a ton of photos. In the end after speaking with several patients via message on this site and another, I did not use him. That and the amount of time he was going to have me under for concerned me. The operation was to be 6 - 8 hours for a rhinoplasty. As a nurse, I found that excessive. Additionally, my understanding is that if something is not to your liking that it is hard to find another surgeon who wants to touch his work as he has essentially used rib to build your entire nose structure and gotten rid of the existing nose structure. While I appreciate that he is a renown surgeon I do not feel, after careful research, that is something that I was comfortable living with. It seems to me that there are a lot of unknowns with rib material and also how your body will respond and heal. I would prefer to work with known foundations and build upon that with as little invasiveness as possible. I would like to know who you saw as i am still looking. I too have an asian nose. So far I feel that the following doctors would be most able to help. Dr Davis, Dr. Nacify, Dr. Frankel, Dr. Grigoryants, Dr. Le and maybe Dr. Warren (Canada), I have seen three of these doctors. I have also heard some mixed things about Dr. Raj Kanodia. Please pm me so we can chat. I am still looking but about to make a decision.
