26 Year Old Male Amazing Rhinoplasty Job Done! Peoria, IL

Excellent work!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Pretty Nose - Delighted 41 Y/o Rhinoplasty Patient - Peoria, IL

My experience with Dr. Putman surpassed expectations in 2014. I was 41 y/o woman unhappy with a bulbous nose tip. I extensively researched rhinoplasty as well as qualified, certified surgeons. Dr. Putman’s combined experience, as well as before and after photos made the decision easy for me. I traveled a great distance, in fact, for Dr. Putman to perform my procedure. The result has been...

Always Wanted a New Nose

Dr P travels to a town near me once an month for consults so I met with him then. He seemed to know what I wanted and was confident it would be an uncomplicated surgery since it was all cosmetic. He didn't think I would need to have it broken which sounded great to me! He said he would just file down the dorsal hump and refine the tip. I knew he had the education needed I just wasn't sure about the skill. I mean his pictures he had brought with him were ok but very outdated by the styles In there. I was pretty set by then though that I just wanted it done. So I scheduled the next day.... Let's do this. I had made my apt for six weeks later. It came and went really fast. I had iv sedation and it was fine. No complications and recovery as far as discomfort has been minimal! I did however have concerns when I had the splint removed. I still saw a bump! I said ummm it still has a bump will that go away?? He said to give it time and be patient. I said ok and made a follow up apt for March. I got in the car and really looked at it, then the big test., I felt it with my fingers. Yep it's bone not swelling! One side is smoother than the other but the other side still has the almost like a spur in it where I had injured it as a kid. So almost three weeks out. A lot of the swelling is down and I still have a bump. No it's no as bad as before but it is noticeable not only to me but those who know me and knew I did this. Soo being that it wasn't broken I guess I just assumed it would be this cute smaller nose with no bump at all I mean that's what you want when you have a dorsal hump is no hump at all! We I'll see what happens with my follow ups but it is a lot of money to look a little better but still not like to look at your nose :( I want other things done like a tummy tuck and booty lift (4 kids and I'm 40) but I'm just not sure how your suppose to know who to choose now. Also things like his office is outdated. Staff was nice enough but the nurse didn't wear gloves when starting my iv. I wouldn't say I felt like I was important by Any means but they were not rude either. So it's like whatever. I'm not sure I want to do a revision with him because what if it's worse? Idk if I should just live with it or what. Sad though really that you have to decide that. Another surgeon would just cost a lot more money than a revision and I can't that right now. So we will see.

Always Took Care of Myself. Just Wanted to Look the Way I Feel Again! - Peoria, IL

Dr Putman was excellent. He was very reassuring the whole time and really wanted me to be pleased. His staff was great. They called me at home and were very specific about my follow up care. Dr Putman even called me at home in the evening just to check on me. It can be scary going through this and they really took care of me. The instructions for after care were very clear and if I called the office for any instructions they were very prompt and specific about what to do and what to expect. I would recommend them to anyone.

4 out of 5 stars Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra- Not So Worth It - East Peoria, IL

Dr. Putnam has been my doctor of choice for the past 3 years. I have used him for Botox and Juvaderm injections. He has always been honest and professional. I would certainly feel good about recommending him to a friend. His nurse is awesome, but his front desk girl is somewhat pushy and can be rude if you catch her when she feels rushed or busy.

Very Satisfied - Peoria, IL

Dr. Putman performed the surgery and did a great job. He met with me and his assistant before the procedure and explained everything on what he would be doing. A week before the surgery his assistant went over the directions of what I would need to do before and after surgery in order for me to completely understand. This was very helpful. After surgery I am not sure that I would be able to remember everything. I cannot say enough about how they made me aware of everything from pre-op to post-op.

I Love my New Face! - Peoria, IL

Dr. Putman took time to answer all my questions and concerns. He made suggestions about procedures I needed to improve areas of my face and neck. I had a necklift and facelift. The results are amazing. I look at least 10 years younger. Dr. Putman is wonderful and his staff is top notch!

5 out of 5 stars Belotero

Belotero Undereye and Radesse in Mid Face and C02 Laser Undereye -Peoria, IL

Went for him for botox my very first time and then tried another Dr. who was having a special, two totally different experiences. Dr. putman looks over your face and puts these weird glasses on and the other Dr. was in a dim lit room and i felt like i was on an assembly line. in and out. He knows what he is doing and tells you if he doesnt think you need something. he is not in it for the money only.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Exceeded my Expectations - Peoria, IL

I was amazed at how well my rhinoplasty went. From my initial consultation, to the actual surgery and follow-up appointments, everything went so smoothly. Dr. Putman is very knowledgeable and professional and made me feel confident about my decision to have surgery. His office staff is the best I have ever encountered and make you feel very comfortable. It has been nearly 6 years since my surgery, and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! I continue to frequent Dr. Putman's office for his med spa and fillers. Everything you could ever want to look beautiful is right in his office!
