"After my initial consultation, his caring & attentive nature made my decision easy, from there things only got better & better." "He has created for me a natural looking nose, I still look like me, just better!" "I did get the sense that he is a busy man, and doesn't have the time to sit with one patient for hours, but that's for a good reason as his appointments run on time and he sees many patients and does many rhino..."

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

A wonderful experience!

My rhinoplasty experience with Dr Shahidi was outstanding! I first went to see him in 2014 at the age of 16, however Dr Shahidi recommended I should wait until I was 18 so my face was more fully developed & I was more emotionally ready to get the surgery done. I'm so thankful he advised me to do it this way because it made things that much easier! I had just finished year 12 so I was more...

Dr. Shahidi you are amazing

I would recommend Dr Shahidi to any and everyone looking to have a rhinoplasty. It has been the most life changing procedure I have had. To those who are reading this, I would like to say before my operation. I would never be able to take a photo without having to either edit it or filter it. Let alone a side profile photo of me to be taken or took of me. My nose was my weakness. From the...

Best Decision I Have Ever Made

If you are looking for the best of the best I could not recommend Dr Shahidi and his staff more!! I had always suffered from difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum which was getting worse every year due to so many childhood accidents. My whole experience with Dr Shahidi and his team was amazing, I was well guided with all the instructions and step for the post op and after care, my nose...

Best Sydney rhinoplasty surgeon without a doubt!

I had septoplasty/rhinoplasty with Dr Shahidi in June 2016. My nose was always an insecurity and I used to feel uncomfortable when people were looking at me from the side, or when I smiled and my nose drooped down. In my experience, the lead-up to the surgery (between consult and surgery date) was the hardest part because I worried about the anaesthetic and not being able to breathe afterwards...

Very happy with the outcome

My rhinoplasty was extremely successful, I am very happy with the outcome. Could not have gone to a better doctor, before I decided to go ahead with the surgery I had very low esteem I did not think that getting my nose done would have made this much of difference. Thank you doctor shahidi for boosting my confidence.

26 Years Later...

When someone is literally playing with your face, you want to be sure you are confident in their ability to achieve optimal results. Dr Shahidi is by no means a warm man, but he is extremely professional and honest which I respect more than anything, and this is a large reason why I chose to go with him. His staff are lovely and have been extremely helpful so overall I am very comfortable.

My Rhinoplasty Story - Chatswood, AU

My consult yesterday with dr Shahidi and his team was extremely efficient and well organised. Dr Shahidi was very honest about the limitations of my nose due to my breathing issues and thick skin. I feel that Dr Shahidi is very genuine and is the right surgeon for me

23 Year Old Male Booked in for Rhinoplasty with Dr Shahidi - Chatswood, AU

Hi All, I have been looking into rhinoplasty since I was around 18 years old and now have finally decided (plucked up enough courage) to have the procedure done. I consulted with a few surgeons in the UK but never felt 100% comfortable with the surgeons so never decided to go through with the procedure. I have recently moved to Australia and looked at a few potential surgeons Dr Shahidi being...
