5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Septo-Rhinoplasty - Woodbury, MN

Dr. Tolan is uniquely talented. He managed to reduce my hump and still keep my ethnic features intact. No one noticed I had anything done, and I am so much happier with my nose. Plus, I can breathe better! I battled with the decision of aesthetically changing my nose for a long time (6 years) and I'm so happy I chose him. He and his team are amazing. I wouldn't think twice about recommending him to my family and friends.

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Deviated Septum - Woodbury, MN

I had a rhinoplasty done by a plastic surgeon but he failed to correct my deviated septum, which was my chief complaint. I thought it was something that I was just going to have to learn to live with. However, after I was diagnosed with asthma, I consulted with an ENT. He explained to me how he could correct my deviated septum and open up my airways so I could breathe better. But I left there...

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

28 Years Old, Functional Septoplasty and Turbinate Surgery. Woodbury, MN

Early 2016: Dr Tolan is an extraordinary and diligent surgeon, a talented artist in the operating room, and a very personable and humble human being. I am grateful for the holistic experience that I received from Dr. Tolan and his staff beginning with the consultation, eventually surgery, and all the way through to a full recovery. Dr. Tolan and his staff made me feel at ease and 100% confident in my choice to move forward with surgery. I could not be happier with the results in any stretch of the imagination. I would highly recommend Dr. Tolan and the staff at Midwest ENT to anyone considering facial reconstructive surgery. ------ Update June 2016: It's been about 6 months post surgery and I continue to recommend Dr. Tolan to family, friends, and the general public. I am very happy with the results and have zero complaints.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

60 Year Old Male Trichophytic (Hairline) Brow Lift and Upper Blepharoplasty - Woodbury, MN

Dr. Tolan and his staff were great. They were efficient and professional. I took painkillers the day of surgery then nothing after that. My eyes looked bruised bad for maybe a week, then sunglasses needed for maybe another week or part of a week. When I look in the mirror my eyes are open! I am extremely happy. Six weeks after surgery my hairline scar is still healing as he previously described.
