Best Rhinoplasty Doctor in the Detroit Metro Area - Southfield, MI

Dr. Zuliani is a great talented surgeon and artist. Highly recommended!!

Finally Doing It.

Dr. Zuliani is amazing in every way. He mastered his craft and it shows in his work. He completely transformed my nose and I will recommend him over any other surgeon in the Midwest.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Zuliani Was Amazing! - Southfield, MI

I got a rhinoplasty at age 16, it fixed the bump I had but it didn't help my breathing issues or really make my nose as beautiful as it should be. I did it again after much hesitation at 21. I was still not happy. For five years I debated back in forth, saw several doctors for consultations but just never quite felt comfortable with them. The third time is scary, hey, the first and second time were scary too! This was different. This was me being an adult and debating about consequences. A girlfriend of mine told me she went to Dr. Giancarlo Zuliani in Southfield, MI. When she was 16 she had her first rhinoplasty, and like me, she debated for years on if she was ready to do it again. When I saw her, I saw a beautiful nose that was what she should have been born with. I decided to see Dr. Zuliani and after seeing him for just a consultation I decided he was the one to do my surgery. He showed me pictures of all of his before and afters and all I had to say was "Wow!". He really could sculpt a perfect nose. I loved his work and to say he made me feel comfortable would be an understatement. He spent six hours in surgery with me, completely remaking my nose. I had a very deviated septum as well as barley any cartilage left in result of the two prior surgeries. He made a tiny incision behind my ear and took cartilage out of there to rebuild my nose with. My recovery time was quick. I did not have any bruising (can you believe it!?). I was also able to call/text/email him with any questions I had. He never made me feel like I was a burden. Within a week or so my nose started to look significantly better. I've received so many compliments I can't even count at this point. Let me remind you, this was my third nose job, he took a nose that two other doctors couldn't fix and made it beautiful. It's been three months now and I can say that looking back, without a doubt, it was the best thing I've ever done. For years I took pictures tilting my head because I thought my nose overpowered my face. Now, my nose looks perfect all thanks to Dr. Zuliani. If you are contemplating doing it, definitely see him! He was a Godsend to me.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

30 Yrs Old, Hereditary Neck Gobbler/ Retracted Chin Due to Braces - Rochester, MI

After multiple consultation with other board certified plastic surgeons in the area, I enlisted Dr. Zuliani to perform a chin implant / neck liposuction surgery on me on January 5th. "Neck gobblers" run in my family and I was starting to see early signs of it on my neck. I had 2 consultations with Dr. Zuliani before surgery. He was able to answer all of my questions / concerns. On the day of...

40 Year Old with a New Nose! Thank You Dr. ZULIANI! - Detroit, MI

I found Dr. Zuliani on this site and read through all the reviews and he is a human being with all the social graces that you WOULDN'T expect from a surgeon ;) . He was prompt and responsive in his communication and answered all my questions and alleviated my fears. He doesn't operate out of a private practice, it is apart of the Wayne State University Physician Group. Obviously you can check out all the credentials etc, I won't go into that here but he is an Otolaryngologist with specialty in facial aesthetic surgery. The consultation was approximately 30 minutes, pictures taken with morphs and he sent them the next day. I communicated with him on a few occasions there after. I knew he was the surgeon for me based on this consultation.

rhinoplasty/septoplasty. Rochester, MI

I found Dr. Zuliani through this site after years of debating if I could go through the surgery to fix my nose because I didn't know which Dr. to trust. I read about him and I set up a consultation with high hopes. As soon as I met Dr. Zuliani I was comfortable enough to where he could have done the surgery that day and I would've trusted him. He is very friendly and knows exactly what he is doing! Not only did he meet my expectations but the results are better than what I wanted. I would recommend him to my entire family, friend and who ever wants anything done to their nose. I still look forward to my short appointments with Dr. Zuliani every few months, he's the best.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift/Neck-lift/Endoscopic Brow-lift in Rochester, MI

I am very pleased with the results of my surgery with Dr. Zuliani and would recommend him to anyone who is planning to undergo a face/brow/neck lift. I had spent literally years researching these procedures and it took me a long time to find a surgeon I trusted enough to operate on my face but I felt very comfortable with Dr. Zuliani. He answered all my questions and concerns and didn't try to oversell procedures I didn't need. It was also a big plus to me that his practice specializes in facial surgery only. Where most general plastic surgeons spend the larger proportion of their time doing things like breast augmentations and liposuctions, Dr. Zuliani completely concentrates on facial surgeries, and therefore has more experience with facelifts/endscopic brow/neck lifts than regular plastic surgeons. He's like an artist and he takes great pride in his work, which translates into excellent natural looking outcomes for his patients. His cost was very reasonable ($6,500 for physician to perform endoscopic brow-lift+facelift+necklift+under chin lipo+laser [which will be done next month because the hospital's laser head was not working the day of my OR] plus $3,000 for operating room time plus $1,500 for anesthesia) actually more reasonable with Dr. Zuliani than with many inferior physicians. I searched a long time to find the right surgeon because I was afraid of looking windswept or lopsided or worse. So I am very happy, and relieved, that everything turned out as well as it did. I would highly recommend Dr. Zuliani for any facial surgery and I would not hesitate for a moment to use him again if I decide to have anything else done in the future.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

eyelid and neck lift surgeries - Dearborn, MI

Im a 49 year old woman, who was in dire need of eyelid surgery and a neck lift! My eyelids folded over and were touching my eye lashes. My neck had absolutely no definition and had excess fat. These were areas that I've been very self conscious about for a long time. My daughter had a beautiful and successful rhinoplasty with Dr. Zuliani, who is an amazing perfectionist! After her surgery, i...

34, Looking to Breathe Better and Wanted a Smaller, Straight Nose... - Dearborn, MI

I am in the recovery stage but I can honestly say I am glad I chose Dr. Zuliani. At my consultation appointment I felt so at ease with him. I didn't know the whole language involved with nose jobs but I knew I wanted to breathe better and also have a smaller, straight nose, and not some one else's nose, my nose, one that fit my face and features. He explained everything to me and it made sense. While I don't feel his strong suit is Photoshop, I don't think you want your surgeon's strong suit to be Photoshop. His results speak for themselves. I cannot comment on my end results just yet as I am only 4 or 5 days post op (however you look at it) and right now I still see it's crooked, but the swelling is definitely uneven. But the results I have seen of others speak volumes! Dr. Zuliani is a very sweet, compassionate, and down to earth man. I felt comfortable with him from the moment I spoke with him. I knew he was the right surgeon for me. I was never scared going into it that he wasn't listening to me. He answered every question I had and even encouraged me to come up with more questions. The only negative thing I felt was that he is based out of 3 locations and that was sort of confusing and difficult with appointments and communications. The actual nurses (he has a line you can call and speak with nurses), payment lady and his specific scheduler were all wonderful but the other front desk people didn't seem to share the same compassion and people skills. He is also an ENT and the office has the vibe of being consistent with that, plastic surgery isn't "advertised" around the office, and I feel like maybe they don't care for plastic surgical patients as much...
