Not Satisfied AT ALL - Austin, TX
I needed a septoplasty because I could not breathe...

So several thousand bucks later I am stuck with a rhinoplasty that did not even give a particularly good result. My nose is asymmetrical, it deviates to the left, and there was some substantial cartilage loss in the left nostril, and a folded over piece of cartilage along the septum on the left that looks like a wart just inside my nose. I will post a picture in upcoming days. Dr. Haydon has done one in-office followup revision and will hopefully do more, but I have been waiting for almost a year to get this warty looking thing removed. I am now pretty self conscious about my appearance.
I also had lip implants and a brow lift, which went fairly well, although I did feel that Dr. Haydon is too conservative for me. He refused to either remove or denervate muscles from between my brows as part of the brow lift, and so I still have deep furrows between my brows, and of course he wants me to purchase Botox and fillers. Also, the lower lip implant is assymetrical, and I do wish he had used larger implants. But none of this compares to my disgust with the fact that I feel he or his staff deliberately misrepresented facts to my insurance company.
I have a good friend who had post-mastectomy reconstruction with Dr. Haydon and believes he did a very good job in her case. I am not satisfied however, and since fortunately I also work in the aesthetics field, people do ask my opinion, and I will take satisfaction in giving it and showing off my nose job in upcoming decades.
No doubt medically competent and a skilled surgeon, but when he has "a bad day at the office," (as even the best do once in awhile), he prefers to sweep it under the rug rather than deal with it head on. A simple "mea culpa" would suffice, coupled with a revision and a letter of medical necessity.
