Are you a patient of George T. Moynihan, MD?
Hello all. I'm a 32 year old female who had septo rhinoplasty surgery June 6, 2017 with Dr Moynihan in a Chicago. I am currently 4 days post op and will be sharing my experience with you all as the days pass. I have akwsys had breathing issues since childhood. My mom use to squeeze my nose with her fingertips as well as put clothes pins on my nose to make it skinnier and smaller. This is a...
5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery
Dr. Moynihan is a brilliant facial surgeon. My experience from start to finish was amazing. I've hated my nose my entire life, but I was to afraid to have sugery inorder to change it. But, I finally decided to have sugery, so after months of research, I finally found one whom I was comfortable with and confident that I would be happy with my results. Dr Moynihan work speaks for its self,...
5 out of 5 stars Voluma
Dr. did not think I needed the procedure. He told me I had a good nose and turned me down for the procedure. He said the surgery would be a waste of my money. He is definitely a surgeon you can trust and have faith in his opinion. He is sensitive and polite unlike many rude surgeons I have been to in the area. Many surgeons around and in the Chicago area have terrible bedside manner and are...
5 out of 5 stars Kybella
I have been a patient of Dr. Moynihan's for a few years now. He and his staff are absolutely incredible! His staff is extremely informative. I received so much information about Kybella prior to my procedure, how to prepare for the procedure, and what to expect after the procedure. Dr. Moynihan and his staff thoroughly answered all of my questions. Because I was so informed by the staff, I felt completely at ease and there were absolutely no surprises during or post-procedure. I knew exactly what to expect and could not have been better prepared! I know I am always in the best hands with Dr. Moynihan and his Gold Coast Plastic Surgery team, receiving the best results possible.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I've wanted my nose done since I was 12 yrs. Old! I went for about 6 or 7 consultations with different well known doctors in Chicago until I discovered Dr. Moynihan. Not only were his prices great, but he knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and achieved it for me ! I couldn't be happier with my new nose. Looks completely natural like nothing even happened !
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I saw Dr. Moynihan for a rhinoplasty consultation in March and immediately felt at ease with him. He is a cool guy, straight to the point and a very calm easy energy to be around. He also knows his stuff, he is clearly very knowledgable and an expert and perfectionist in what he does, which is faces. I knew that my nose looked too big on my face but was unable to articulate anything more...
1 out of 5 stars Restylane
I will never waste an opportunity to share my horrific experience with Dr. George Moynihan of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery in Chicago, Il. Not only was he dismissive and condescending; most importantly, he is terrible at injecting, correcting and over all the worst physician I have ever encountered. When the Restylane under my eyes began to swell and pool, he suggested I get Voluma to "greet" the awful pillows he had created. He said this would all "fill in nicely." After two weeks, I decided to have the filler removed. Before he injected the Hyaluronidase he crossed his fingers-I guess that should've tipped me off. When he injected the Hylenex, he hit an artery, maybe some blood vessels, said he wasn't "really sure" and sent me on my way. When I got home, I called his office stating that I was concerned about necrosis. I thought if he had hit a blood vessel and the product was breaking up, than perhaps the Restylane could block blood flow. He told me to, "get off the Internet" and said I was an over anxious patient. That was 5 weeks ago. His office has never called to check in and see how I was healing, nor did he suggest a follow up to examine the injury he caused. During this time, I sought the advice of another, more competent, compassionate, plastic surgeon. When I showed him the picture of the damage Dr. Moynihan caused, he said: "Quite frankly, if a patient sent me that picture, I would have panicked." This doctor has given me techniques to massage the area, arnica gel to help in my recovery, and has seen me every week to chronicle my healing. Dr. Moynihan is nothing more than a con artist/salesman. I'm amazed and astonished he's performing these procedures; clearly, he is not qualified to do so. He has caused me undue harm, and stress and has been negligent in follow up care.
Holy cow. I booked it. My surgery will be February 11th. & I think I'm still in shock that it's really happening. So I was planning on meeting with 2-3 doctors but after meeting with Dr. Moynihan, I feel comfortable proceeding. After discussion with my family and also my schedule restraint, I realize this is the right choice.. He's a facial plastic surgeon and does about 200 rhinoplasties a...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Because I had been wanting rhinoplasty for several years I have always been paying close attention to everyone's nose. I have seen so many that have obvious signs of poor work. I went to Dr. Moynihan 6 months ago for my rhinoplasty and couldn't be more pleased with the results. He removed all the imperfections of my nose (bump, crooked, drooping) and now I have the nose I have always...
Dr. Moynihan approaches plastic surgery as a means of contributing to his patient’s quality of life by improving their appearance and thus, enhancing their self image through facial surgery. Patient’s specific desires to look and feel better must be understood thoroughly by his or her surgeon.
$150. Consult fee is deducted from the cost of the procedure.
