Doctor Fernando Pedroza, Clinica La Font, Terrible Experience for a Revision Rhinoplasty - Bogota, Colombia

Last year I went to Bogota, Colombia for a revision Rhinoplasty with one of the most famous doctors in Latinamerica, Dr. Fernando Pedroza.

I want to write this review so that other people avoid going to this doctor, who claims to be one of the best in Latin America.

I needed revision rhinoplasty and a doctor in my country recommended dr. Pedroza because he had heard him in a conference and he claims to be pioneer in his revision tecnique. I first contact them via Skype and everything seemed ok, the doctor was available anytime I called. Of course they selled me the doctor as the best of the best.

When I arrived to Colombia I had an appointment with the doctor before the surgery. He is definetly a business man.. and he has sort of a scary market of noses in his clinique Clinica La Font. He does at least 10 rhinoplasties in a day and therefore he doesnt take time to analyze each case... It literaly took him 5 minutes to check me and analyze my case before the surgery, which was a very complicated one. He didnt even checked how was my nose inside. The main problen with this doctor and the hospital is that they are so money oriented that they attend all the possible patients, no matter what and that was part of my horrifying experience.

After surgery I spent 1 week in Colombia, my nose was so swollen that I couldnt really judge the result, but I did see some problems like a big bump in my collumela which the doctor insisted it was ok. He said everything came out perfect.

I returned to my country and the more my nose swelling started to decrease, I started detecting all the problems with my nose. The worst part was that I tried to contact the doctor via skyoe and he dissapeared. When I sent him pictures of my nose and all the problems he suddenly didnt want to attend my calls and concerns...

In brief.. the surgery results where terrible. My nose had so many deformities much worst than before the surgery. The bump in my collumela was a cartilage graft that was coming out my skin... the tip of my nose had a deformed shape with one side of it totally indented and in my skin I had a fibrosis that I told him about before the surgery but he didnt resolve...

If someone is planning to get a revision surgery with this doctor... you will probably find a lot of videos of him in youtube, as they do have an incredible marketing department... but try to find a good surgeon who will take the time to study your case, review the procedures with you and specially be available to give you a follow up. When you go through a revision surgery.. you really want to choose a doctor near you who can have the experience, time and patience to deal with your case...

Doctor Fernando Pedroza sells on the internet as the best but my revision rhinoplasty experience was really devastating!!! he left my nose with a lot of deformities and complications. The worst part was that he wouldnt even attend my calls and concerns after surgery.

Thank you realself for this great webpage. I really wanted to share my bad experience as I felt devastated after what happened to me and I think it is important to have feedback from patients experience. I really wanted to share mine because some doctors sell on the internet.. I wish more people would share their experiences...
