Not What I Expected - New York, NY

I had rhinoplasty. My nose looks better but difference is very subtle. I did not experience any pain. What I felt was mostly congestion that one would experience during a bad cold. I was very surprised by how depress I felt right after and still do. I did not tell anyone and no one has noticed

I'm sorry you're not in the best place right now! Plastic surgery can be tough emotionally for some people, especially if your results aren't as stellar as you'd hoped. No one said anything about mine either and I think that's mainly because people are too preoccupied with themselves to think much about other people's noses.

You've got a mini support group going here and I hope you'll keep us updated as you continue to heal.

Not happy about my results. Improvement in some areas but over all not good. Looking for revision.

update continued

I'm really upset. I had discussed exactly why I needed surgery with Dr.Miller. He showed me lousy pictures and did nothing to fix my nose. It's horrible that I have the same insecurities about it. I was not expecting to have it look so much the same.

I selected the wrong surgeon. I'm really deprsssed and don't want to be around people. Dr. Miller has dimissed me and left me without any medical console. I have no follow up appointments scheduled

underwhelmed

My results are not impressing me so far. I regret my decision to use Dr Miller as he has not been attentive or shown any interest in his own work. Luckily realself member adivsed me to tape my nose

No progress

Still unhappy. My nose looks big and ugly. I know I've said this before but I really regret my choice in surgeons. Didn't know natural means lets leave it ugly. So it's may look slightly better. But at the end of the day big is big and ugly is ugly. I'm even gaining weight because i'm so depressed.

Me too! Maybe there are changes that you're not seeing? I had almost no change in the tip for 6 months so hang in there!

I'm too embarrased by my nose to post photos. I'll see but I asked my Co worker. She's the only one who I told at work BC she plans on having surgery too. She said she sees no difference. Looks like I got a facial. Lol
Hang in there. You are still only a month and I hope things get better! I would love to see your before/afters.

No improvement three months post op.

No improvement in my nose. I was told to wait and it's been three month. I have not even had one day where I felt like I was a bit happy or saw some kind of improvement. Some days my nose looks like I was punched in the face. I blame my surgeon who scammed me and wasted my time. He is a butcher and mutilator.

Three months post op. Still no improvement

I've waited and waited and see no improvement. I blame my surgeon. This is clearly his fault. He belittled me, dissmissed me and did inadequate work on my nose. He must only pay attention to his international or "important" clients. I don't understand since he does not take insurance. Isn't one persons money the same as another. I guess not. He is unethical.

It's like surgery never happened

My nose has not improved. I think it's as ugly as before the surgery no diffiernce. I hate Dr. Miller and his whole office. Wish I had never went there and went somewhere else. Money was practically stolen from me. No difference. As I'm getting closed to my fifth month my nose is looking worse. My confidence is a an all time low. I don't even feel like a human being anymore put a pig because that's the kind of nose I have,

New York Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr.Philip Miller seemed very warm and friendly during consultation. I was so impressed with him, and meeting him made me want to do the surgery even more. However, I only saw him couple times and for a total of less than 10min. I wish I had used another doctor. I feel like I was scammed. I see no significant improvement in my nose. It's actually getting bigger. It looks rushed. I believe he did not take his time and operate on me. Five months and no improvement. He does not give equal time to his patients, and botches the operations of those he feels are not worth his time. I cry every day that I did not go somewhere else, to a skilled surgeon. I'm so upset that he will get away with what he did to me. It is my opinion he should not be allowed to preform any rhinoplastys and ruin lives with his incompetence. I came to him for help but now feel that he mocked me, along with his horrible staff. The patient advisor is a liar who only sees the patients as big huge dollar signs. His name is Joseph, and he convinced me to use a doctor he knew was lousy. Again, he is a liar. If you like to be treated like a human being, and want your issues solved, do not go to this doctor.
