I am very unhappy with the rhinoplasty results. I didn't ask for much, there was something very small I didnt like about my nose that I wanted to improve. Unfortunately, it didnt turn out as what I hoped, asked for, and expected at all. I made it clear what I wanted to be done, but he made it worse. The looks of it worsened and I have become more upset and insecure. Honestly fully regret having gotten this surgery. Im going to have to find another doctor to re-do this all over again. Not looking forward to it at all.

I had a very disappointing experience...

I had a very disappointing experience with Dr. Wiesman. I had gotten in a car accident in 2009, and my nose broke from the airbag. I had no problem with my nose before that so never thought I would get rhinoplasty. I couldn't breathe well and my nose had widened alot. I needed surgery and for it to just be slimmed and look how it did before it broke. I went to a surgeon at Northwestern Hospital, he is way older and has much more experience. But unfortunately, on one side of my nose, he gave me a deep "pinch" and it did not look natural. I was sad and surprised about that. So last year, I turned to Weisman for him to just soften that "pinch". Thats it. Thats all I wanted. Yet, he changed the whole thing. The bridge of my nose has been pulled to the left, so it doesnt go straight down how it used to be, he barely softened the pinch, and on top of it all, he ruined the perky tip of my nose. Before my nose broken, I always had a slighty perky tip, you the know the one that all women want. It was feminine, soft, really flattering for my face. For some strange and unknown reason, he got rid of it. He shortened my nose, rounded the tip big time, and pulled it way down. Looks terrible, so not flattering, the profile just looks unattractive in pictures and when I look in the mirror. Its a terrible reminder every day, making me even more sad. Wish I never did it the second time, and with him. People I ask, even 3 surgeons in Europe for their opinion have told me I definitely shouldn't have done anything, that it looked way better before, and the tip of my nose looks like it has been "dropped and pulled down." I showed them before and after pictures, and they said the way my nose looks now should have been the before picture, and how it was before should have been the after. I also had shown Weisman the before and after pictures so that he could see how sad I am and the big unnecessary difference and he told me he sees nothing! He told me no he did not do that. And that "it's fine. It's fine!" Terrible. He argued with me. Wow. Didn't expect anything like that, it's so wrong and made me upset. He didn't even offer to fix it. I still am saddened and disappointed and can't get over his reaction and how he spoke with me after.
