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 Grace, I have flown to Baltimore and seen Dr. Le, I have gone to Chicago to see Toriumi and I have seen Paul Nassif in Seattle as well as Dr. Warren in Vancouver. And also Dr. Grigoryants. I am pretty sold on Dr. Grigoryants.

Gosh! This is so confusing and scary! I am considering Thomas T. Le, I have checked Dr. Boahene's web and only found one for no se augmentation, Dr. Thomas has done various, because he works mainly on asian noses and Dr. Nassif I am not sure but I like most of his pictured and he has many no se jobs behind him. The doybt is,,, how real are they? I really really want this to be my last INE; it would also be my third! Has anyone el se seen Toriumi?

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

I also considering Dr T He is probably the most experienced and talented revision Dr out there.

no Dr Davis in Miami was my 2nd, but I think I need a more projected nose higer bridge my davis nose is very small. There are not very many Drs that know how to correctly augment the bridge.

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. :)

Hi, I have had 7 botched jobs and am looking in using Dr. Boahene or Nassif. I need a rib graft. I went to see Toriumi and I refuse to pay 30,000 with so many negative experiences. I flew from out of town to see him and he almost cancelled because he was late and overbooked. The office staff was not very communicative and the visit left me cold. Would love to know who you decided to use.

I know what you mean, with Dr T you have to be prepared with your questions and research, hes not the type of Dr that sell himself. Im in same spot as you Im not sure myself who to go to. but to build a nose up using rib theres not to many Dr that are good at this method, Dr Toriumi is probably one of the best drs for rib, I need rib as well, and I myself am also confused, and going to make a decision this year ill probably go and See Dr T again to try to be on the same page with him. I know he has the skills to give me the nose I need I guess we just have to communicate.
