5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Dr. Mehta Made Me a Very Happy Girl - Atherton, CA

I researched my butt off and met with 3 other surgeons before Dr. Mehta and instantly felt relieved after our consolation and very excited. He understood my dislikes and together we put together a surgical plan! I just got my splint off and couldnt be happier! My nose is exact to the per-operative images we decided on. Dr. Mehta is so gifted, smart, caring. He's always been there to answer any...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Personal Goal Met! 100% Satisfied! - Atherton, CA

I got a chin implant done with Dr. Mehta, and couldn't have been more pleased. Pros: Achieved desired aesthetic result Easy recovery Very little pain/bruising Cons: Lots of swelling the day after surgery Some numbness in chin region My motivation: I had always been unhappy with the way my facial proportions looked. First I blamed it on my teeth, but orthodontists...

Love my New Nose!! - San Francisco, CA

I had a rhinoplasty when I was 20 and it looked OK when the surgeon took off the splint but over the next few weeks it started getting more and more pinched and twisted. I couldn't breathe and was always kinda self-conscious about it. I'm in my 30's now and am planning to get married this summer. I wanted my nose to look good in my wedding photos so I decided it was time to get it...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Expectations Exceeded - Bay Area, CA

Pro: The results I desired were exceeded Fairly easy recovery Con: Takes a few months for the implant to feel natural Results take several weeks Motivation: I have a naturally small jaw and chin (the latter of which is slightly crooked). This wasn't so much of a problem when I was younger, but my neck fattened up quite a bit over the past few years, consuming the little bit...

I Can Breathe Again! - Atherton, CA

I had an incredible experience with Dr Mehta. After a botched septoplasty last December in NY, I had a large perforation in my septum (1.5 x 2.5cm according to my ENT) which other doctors said was too large to be fixed. I had whistling, bleeding and crusting from the perforation and was very hesitant about further surgery. After a consult with Dr Mehta, my fears were put to rest. He and his...

For the First Time in 34 Years, a Fully Functioning Nose - Atherton, CA

Botox and Fillers - Atherton, CA

I first saw Dr Mehta about 2years ago for a little Botox and some filler in the marionette lines. I was very pleased with not looking too beaten up post injections and with the natural looking results. Have been a patient ever since.

Dr. Mehta Rocks! - Bay Area, CA

I found Dr. Mehta on RealSelf and so glad I did! I have done laser hair removal as well as fillers in the lips, nose, nasiolabial folds and cheeks with Dr. Mehta at his office in Atherton, CA. I was very nervous to try the laser hair removal as i've had friends who would tell me how painful it was. The procedure was PAINLESS. I have done my full 6 sessions, and couldn't be happier with...

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Coudn't Be Happier! - Bay Area, CA

About 10 years ago, I had what I'd call a very botched rhinoplasty, septoplasty, turbinate resectioning and spreader grafts by a dr. no longer at Stanford. The result was an ugly mess on many levels. So much so, that no other doctor wanted to touch it forcing me to go back to the same guy for additional mess-making. I've lived with an ugly, not-very-well functioning nose for 10 years since. If...

Had my Consultation and I Think I'm Ready for a Change

I have trouble breathing and hate my nose at the same time, ever since I was a teenager. My parents and siblings have very different noses than I, and it makes me very self conscious. My main problem is the flaring of my nostrils and the almost extreme notching. 1st DR consultation: I went to a PS and towards the end of the second consultation he was unsure he would be able to fix the...
