5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Byrne was the second Doctor I interacted with in regards to Rhinoplasty. He was easy to talk to and knew immediately what I wanted from a brief explanation. He was able to do the surgery within a month of our initial meeting with no less precision or expertise than a procedure that was planned farther into the future. With the exception of some tensions between some of the nurses at JHU, everyone was very responsive and forthcoming from beginning to end. Of course the days following the surgery were not fun, but since then I have so far healed well and love my new nose very much. As a person who isn't so comfortable with surgery in general (this was my first and hopefully my last), Dr. Byrne really put me at ease and the process paid off in the exact way I hoped for. Definitely a skilled and approachable surgeon, I would recommend to anyone who wants a natural result and responsive before and after care.
5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty
I had a revision rhinoplasty that was technically extremely difficult to accomplish. The result, even just a month later is absolutely fabulous. The structural issue with a collapsed valve was fixed, swelling minimal, and I was back to work without complications. My husband loves the result, very natural, but a much better version of my nose.
5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Byrne is an exceptionally skilled facial surgeon. He instills trust in patients with his easygoing manner and great "bedside manner", besides his exemplary background. He went the extra mile to reach out to another facial plastic surgeon where I live in North Carolina so I would not have to make the trip to Baltimore to have stitches removed. Thank you Dr Byrne for all you have done.
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Byrne has always been extremely professional and friendly when I visited. I felt we were a team. I felt listened to as I shared my concerns with the doctor. He has always taken what I have to say in consideration as well as sharing his own opinions. I felt what I shared always had value and that while he is the physician, I know my body and both are important when we are talking about one's appearance. Because of this, it felt like we were both the experts. One thing I really like about Dr. Byrne is he is able to give me injectables so that I do look younger than I am, but he does not overdo it. He has found the delicate balance of helping to erase some of my issues and stop some of the process without having it look unnatural. I feel like that is a valuable skill to have in his field. I highly recommend Dr. Byrne to anyone who is considering to see him. He is truly amazing and is highly skilled. He is passionate about his work and from what I have seen is an artist with what he does.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
He knew exactly what I want without having to explain much to him. We were on the same wavelength it seems.

Dr Byrne is fantastic!
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Very professional and very skilled with rhinoplasty. He took time to go through his plan with me and listened to me to know what my goals were. Im thrilled with my results, and if i had to do it again i would choose him again. Im so thankful that I found him.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
My experience with Dr. Byrne has been great. I came across him through a simple internet search and was "wowed" with his credentials. He furthered my confidence in him as a surgeon after thoroughly answering my questions through the consultation phase. My father and I asked him some tough questions and he handled it well, even admitting the percentage of patients who are down right unhappy with his result. I believe he said 90% are truly happy with the result. I came to him with a reasonable goal in mind, all the while wanting the end result to look natural and compliment my other features. He was genuine and honest with me and I actually walked away trusting him with my face. Huge deal! A con is that he relies heavily on his staff and sometimes dealing with them was frustrating at times because they are so busy but overall I must say the scheduling and payment process went fairly smoothly. However, when ever I left a message, my call was returned same day. On the day of surgery, there were no surprises and I was thankful for that. Staff was calm and I was at ease. I had time to speak to Dr. Byrne before the surgery which was very necessary because I had not actually spoken/sat down with him since the consult. He straight up asked me what I wanted accomplished that day, I told him, and he was attentive. The rest is history. Recovery staff made me very comfortable in my post-op state and Dr. Byrne came by to reassure me he was able to accomplish our goals and that I would be pleased with the result. (which always makes you feel good when you're in that anesthesia cloud). I highly recommend Dr. Byrne to anyone considering getting a rhinoplasty. Go in with a realistic outcome in mind and you will not be disappointed.
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
Dr. Byrne performed blephoraplasty and my eyes have never looked better. I can't say enough positive things about him.
I have served as the Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine since 2001. During that time, I have dedicated my professional life to seeking the very best outcomes, in the safest manner for the most natural appearing results possible.
