5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Best Surgeon! Great Experience! So Happy! Calgary, AB

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

25 Year Old Rhinoplasty - Calgary, AB

Dr. Zahkary is exceptional. Phenomenal. She is simply the best in my opinion. I spent years researching physicians for my operation. I ended up coming across Dr. Zahkary online and I really liked the fact that she was also a woman, so she would have realistic expectations for what the outcome of my face should be. The reviews I found were mostly positive, with the exception of a few negative ones however once I read them, I could tell they were written with unrealistic expectations. This made me feel more comfortable and I decided to book a consultation which only took a week to book. When I walked into her office for the consultation, I felt a little impatient because it took 2 hours to see her since she was very busy. This was a good opportunity though, as I got a chance to watch patients walk in and out of her office and see how their results were! When I was politely taken into a room to meet her, I instantly fell in love with her personality and smile. She is very genuine, sweet and modest. She listened to everything I had to say and was not afraid to let me know if the image I had was unrealistic or would not work for my face. We ended up booking the surgery 3 months out which was to allow time incase I wanted to change my mind or had second thoughts. Throughout these 3 months she was great at answering all my questions and keeping me informed on the next step in the process. I never felt lost or left hanging, it was easy to talk to her. My personal situation required 1.5 years of follow-ups post surgery, where she was very happy to see me on a monthly basis to answer my questions and to monitor my progress. She never made me feel like I was asking too much and would do a great job of calming down my uncertainties. It is a long, tough journey both physically and mentally. There are going to be days where you feel like 'wow ok this looks great I think I see the end result coming', and there are going to be days where you feel 'oh my goodness what is happening to my face why is it leaning this way?!' this is completely NORMAL, it is your body trying to heal itself and it takes at least a year to see solidified results! I had a lot of anxiety for some months and she would do an amazing job of explaining why this was happening and resting my doubts. It has now been a total of 1.5 years after the surgery and I cannot express how happy I am with the way everything went. If I had to do it all over again I would choose her no questions asked!!! I believe honest reviews are the best reviews, and I assure you it has been the longest struggle of my life getting to this point, where I feel the most confident and happy I have ever been thanks to her help. Thank you Dr. Zahkary!!!

Amazing Doctor - Calgary, AB

My Septorhinoplasty Experience - Calgary, AB

I chose my doctor based on research, online reviews, and seeing amazing results firsthand (my friend also had rhinoplasty). I definitely made the right decision. Dr. Zakhary is brilliant, realistic, honest, upfront, caring, and a bit of a perfectionist (the good kind!). She answers every question you have and explains everything in a way that's easy to understand. She walks her patient's through everything from the consultation to the follow up appointments. Here's an example of how amazing she is: I have a fear of needles and a fear of general anesthetic, which Dr. Zakhary knew about. As I was on the OR table on the day of the surgery when the anesthesiologist was starting my IV and putting me to sleep, Dr. Zakhary was holding my hand and talking me through it. That simple gesture meant so much to me and helped me cope with my fears.

Great Rhinoplasty Experience - Calgary, AB

Dr. Zakhary did my rhinoplasty recently. She did a terrific job. I did a lot of research before picking her, and I'm glad with my choice. She's an exceptional surgeon with a great aesthetic sense. I think it's a combination of her extra years of specialization as a facial surgeon (the only one in town I believe) and being a woman. I saw a review that said negative things about her. That's not at all warranted or fair. She's a great surgeon. I would go to her before anyone else in town. She did a great job from start to finish. I had many questions about the rhinoplasty surgery. She walked through them patiently with me. She explained what we could and could not do for a natural but beautiful outcome. And she was right. No one has every guessed I've had rhinoplasty, but I can easily see the difference and feel more confident because of it. I'm really happy with the outcome.

Septoplasty/rhinoplasty, 2 weeks post-surgery - Calgary, AB

I selected Dr. Kristina Zakhary to perform the procedure because she specializes in facial plastic surgery. I feel very comfortable with her skill level as a doctor and surgeon working on a challenging nose (mine), as well as with her personable manner. She is great to talk with, she listens, and explains the procedure, risks, and outcomes in detail. She welcomes any questions or concerns you may have. Her staff are sensitive and very courteous. You can expect to receive reminder messages so that appointments are confirmed and re-confirmed. Kelsey is one of her patient care coordinators and is always very friendly and supportive. All of the surgical staff at the hospital were amazing, Erin, Kelsey, and Juby, and the anaesthesiologist (cannot remember his name!) From my experience, Dr. Zakhary has a thriving and well-managed practice. I would strongly recommend her to others looking to have rhinoplasty surgery.
