21 Year Old Rhinoplasty, Septal Reconstruction & Inferior Turbinectomy - Sydney, AU

Since the age of 12, I have always been super self cautious about my nose. I HATED my side view as there was a huge and common middle eastern bump with an extremely droopy, bulbous front tip. I have always desired to go to Dr Shahidi as I have been following his work for years. I finally convinced my parents to allow me to do the procedure, so I booked my first consultation in October. From...

Rhinoplasty, Septal Reconstruction, Turbs - Dr Shaihidi CHATSWOOD AU.

After reading several reviews, I booked my first initial consultation around May with Dr Shahidi for the 1st of August 2017 (he is veryyyy booked out). I was lucky enough to get called earlier to go and see him sooner and my new consult date was the 18th of July. Upon arrival I was greeted by the lovely Railegh, and then we waited for Dr Shahidi. I was very excited to meet him, as I follow...

Rhinoplasty + Rib Graft

I've disliked my nose since I was 15 and decided when I was old enough and could afford rhinoplasty - I would do it. I'm south east Asian and have a flat bridge, wide nostril and round (bulbous) tip. I looked at many avenues when I turned 18, plastic surgery in Thailand or Vietnam due to cost saving but was always scared about surgery in a developing country, being away from home, etc. I...

I made the right choice

I had an amazing experience with Dr Shahidi, from the minute I met him I felt very comfortable to go ahead with the surgery. Everything was well organised and I'm very happy with my rhinoplasty result. Would definitely recommend Dr Shahidi.

Rhino Journey

Hi everyone, after considering and researching this for as long as I can remember, I have booked in for a primary rhinoplasty with Dr Shahidi in Dec 2017. Since Real Self has been an invaluable tool in getting me to this stage, I'm going to be posting my experience here in the hopes that it will help some of you :) Also, despite my close friends and family being supportive, I suspect they're...

SEPTORHINOPLASTY - DR SHAHIDI -SYDNEY NSW- So Happy with Results!!

Dr Shahidi is an amazing surgeon, he is professional, kind and great at what he does. I love my new nose and only wish I went to see Dr. S sooner! Thankyou for making my life better

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Amazing outcome

My rhinoplasty journey with Dr Shahidi could not have gone any better, from my first consultation to post surgery appointments I knew that I was in great hands. For a very long time I have always disliked the shape of my nose so I wanted to make sure I found the best surgeon that could give me the result I wanted. I love how Dr Shahidi specialises in rhinoplasty's where many other surgeons do...

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Dr. Shahidi is the master!

After much research, consulting others and scouring reviews over the internet, I finally found Dr. Shahidi's profile on RealSelf and have never turned back! My experience with Dr. Shahidi was professional and straight-forward. Himself and the team were sympathetic to my concerns and queries. He has given me a nose which fits perfectly with my face and is natural enough to escape notice by...

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...
