5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

He is the Absolute Best of the Best - Troy, MI

Anyone who says something about his personality doesn't have a clue about how dismissive doctors can be. I love his personality and his concern for his patients and his interest in the outcome. Surgery is very unnerving, but he makes you laugh and reassures you. At the end of the day, though, someone's personality doesn't matter in the slightest. What matters is how talented they are. Dr. Golden delivers. No one else will be able to offer you a better outcome. Period.

I Love my New Nose!! :) - Troy, MI

Dr. Golden and his staff are amazing!! Dr. Golden is straight forward, has a great sense of humor, and is a very gifted surgeon. His staff is very accommodating and helpful. I'm very pleased with my results so far and I'm exited to see my nose fully healed.

11 days post-op

I've disliked my nose since middle school when I developed a dorsal hump (I'm 23 now). I've always wondered if I broke my nose when I was little because no one else in my family has my nose. I was never teased about my nose, but I really realized that I hated it when I was getting my senior pictures done in high school. One of the "default" poses that my photographer does is a...

Amazing Rhinoplasty Experience - Troy, MI

First, i was very nervous about selecting the best doctor under a budget. I had seen too many hack jobs online. I am incredibly happy with my surgeon. I must warn though, he has a very unique personality. But then again, maybe all plastic surgeon have a bit of a weird streak. He was honest about what he could and could not do. Dr. Golden's philosophy is to not over-do it. He told me that if not enough was done, it could be fixed with a follow up procedure. However, if too much was done, there was no going back. He really stuck to that. I was not 100% pleased with the first results (though my nose looked 100 times better and i could actually breathe) he did another minor procedure free of cost. He really is a perfectionist. But he knows what he is doing. He is also a rhinoplasty specialist. This means that he doesn't do 5,000 breast implants a year and 3 nose jobs- this means that the face is his specialty! The greatest advise i can give anyone who is searching for a surgeon, or even goes to see Dr. Golden is as follows: who cares if the receptionist doesn't smile when you walk in or is peppy, and who cares if the surgeon has a personality which is not necessarily your cup of tea. The only things that matter is how good of a surgeon is he. Dr. Golden was great. That is the most important part. Because when i was under and he was doing his magic, the secretary or the doc's personality were the last things that matter. Get references from potential doctors, and talk to the other people in the waiting room....

Scheduled for Septorhinoplasty for Sep 29

Dr. Golden and his staff were very helpful and reassuring. Dr Golden has already called to follow up and my surgery was just this morning. His staff took care of me when i was in recovery, got my blanket, got me apple juice, let me rest in a nice recliner chair, etc. So far, so good.

Septorhinoplasty-Finally Doing It After 20 Years! - Troy, MI

Dr. Golden has been doing this for a long time. He knows what he's doing and how to do it. He has a great eye and hand for what he does. Sometimes can be inconsistent verbally with what the plan is but overall cares about getting the agreed upon outcome.

What a Talented Doctor! - Troy, MI

I was not planning on joining realself or writing a review. I've been looking on here before my surgery and right after to see reviews of Dr. Golden and to see how people are recovering. But now I have to share my experience with Dr. Golden. He was highly recommended to me; after my consultation and a little research online, I was confident that I made the right decision. Very very talented doctor, can't say enough good things. I would recommend him to anyone. If anyone has any questions about the surgery or Dr. Golden, or if you want to see pictures, feel free to PM me.

2 weeks post-op - Troy, MI

I have my septo/rhinoplasty scheduled for 8/31. I've been talking about getting it done forever but finally with my wedding next summer I decided to go for it! My #1 goal is to improve is my profile and overprojected nose. I just think it's at a terrible angle and I dread any side-profile photos. I was worried about changing the front view of my nose which isn't that bad. I decided to go...

Planning my Surgery with Dr. Golden - Detroit, MI

Thank you all for sharing your experiences with Dr. Golden. I am planning my revision rhinoplasty surgery for Sept. 21 and I'm nervous and excited at the same time :/ :) . I had a nose job back in 2008 and the doctor RUINED my nose, he made my nose barely there, crooked and he deviated my septum (i got fillers at one point to fill the gap). However, that is in the past and I'm happy ( and...
