About 10 years ago, I had what I'd call a very botched rhinoplasty, septoplasty, turbinate resectioning and spreader grafts by a dr. no longer at Stanford. The result was an ugly mess on many levels. So much so, that no other doctor wanted to touch it forcing me to go back to the same guy for additional mess-making. I've lived with an ugly, not-very-well functioning nose for 10 years since. If you're looking for rhinoplasty revision, you may already be aware that there's not many doctors willing to work with you on correcting someone else's mistake.
When I turned 40, I decided I was going to try once more to get it fixed.
I am now about 3 weeks out from my surgery as as a surgeon friend of mine put it, my nose is a work of art. I could honestly admire my nose all day long in the mirror, it's that awesome- and I've still got some time to go before seeing the complete results! I've had a few tiny panics during the process which ended up being nothing and Dr. Mehta and Jill always made time to fit me in right away to allay my concerns. This was truly the BEST revision decision I could have made!!!

I narrowed down my search to Dr. Sam Most and Dr. Mehta. I had two consults with Dr. Mehta and while I really, really liked him as well as Jill, his scheduler/office manager, they seemed too good to be true. Seriously. The office is spa-like and Jill is so on the ball, friendly and super competent. Dr. Mehta makes you feel like the only patient in the world. He was personable, available for my endless questions (I ended up going for two consults because I had so many questions!) and from the beginning, listened to my story, never talked down to me and was confident he could fix my issues. I saw Dr. Most for a second opinion which sealed the deal. I was going with Dr. Mehta. Let me also mention that Dr. Mehta partners with Waverly Surgical Center and they were completely amazing as well paying attention to my past issues with MRSA and took into consideration my asthma and allergies. Dr. Coe who did my anesthesia was super fantastic esp. considering I've had complications with anesthesia in the past.
