Hello, I chose a pair of surgeons in LA to do my primary. I ended up with a very conspicuous graft that must be removed, a retracted columella and retracted nostrils. I will now have to have a revision that will take at least 3.5-6 hours in the OR and cost upwards of $11,000.
On to a Revision...primary Was Very Poorly Done - Los Angeles, CA
Hello, I chose a pair of surgeons in LA to do my...
I had a primary with this doctor a couple of years...
so much regret about this choice
I chose this provider based on the photo gallery however I neglected to see pictures from actual patients and search for filtered or hidden reviews. I fell for good marketing instead of experience.
It is hard to trust a surgeon again. I feel like I have to almost educate myself in terms of techniques and terminology so that I can understand what will be done before my revision. If you are going to get rhinoplasty, do extensive research and talk to real patients! Search under every rock for reviews as many surgeons try to "hide" or filter the negative reviews.
