5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Successfull rhinoplasty

Dr. Shipchandler is a highly qualified plastic surgeon. He has a kind demeanor and is very professional. My revision rhinoplasty was quite complicated because there was a significant bent in my nose. He corrected it successfully and in the end I was very happy with his work. I highly recommend Dr. Shipchandler for rhinoplasty.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, Turbinate Reduction

I have had difficulties with my breathing, deviated septum, significant turbinates...I had wanted to do this for some time, and am so happy with the results. I had only one regret that I did not do this earlier. The results were so phenomenal, and the care and follow up was exceptional. I so endorse, highly, Dr. Shipschandler
