5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

23 Y/o Female, Located in Indiana, Sought out Perfectionist and Found Him! Saint Louis, MO

Motivation: I wanted a straighter, smaller nose with a better profile. Pros: Easy recovery (minimal swelling and bruising, and very little pain), great results (not a drastic difference, subtle change as desired), would have the procedure done again, but only with the same surgeon! Cons: The 3.5-hour drive to Dr. Nayak's office from my home. (Truthfully, the only con I can think of.)

Happiest Girl in the World - Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Nayak is absolutely indescribable. He is incredibly gifted and has shined a very positive light in my life; I am so thankful that I fell in the right hands for my rhinoplasty surgery. My rhinoplasty has energized me to start a completely new era in my life; an era full of sass, confidence and comfort. I fractured my nose at the age of 5 while living in North Iraq, in a literal village...

Mini-face Lift with Submentoplasty and Chin Implant - Saint Louis, MO

I am 43 years old. I have been going to Dr. Nayak’s for approximately 4 years for Botox injections. The one thing that I have always hated about my body is my double chin. Even when I was young and thin, I still carried fat in my neck/throat area. Instead of having a nice straight jaw line, I had a ski slope. In 1996 and 2004, I had liposuction to try to get rid of the double chin...

Pleased with Face-lift for Jowls, Neck and Profile

I had a face-lift, cheek implants and submentoplasty (The amount spent is for all three procedures.) because I looked tired and mean, and people thought I was older than my husband and I'm not!When I looked in the mirror, I saw nothing but the flaws and indentations in my face. I was starting to get depressed. I had some mild-to-moderate jowling and my neck looked older than my age. Also, I...

Homework Paid off - St. Louis

Just as they say the three most important considerations in selecting real estate are 'location. location. And ... location.', I think the three most important considerations when selecting a plastic surgeon should be 'board certified. board certified. board certified.' That was where I started and then I found someone with impeccable credentials and training. And THEN I was...

Couldn't Be Happier - Saint Louis, MO

Ever since I entered middle school I can remember always being self-conscious about the way my nose looked! Now 20 years old, I finally went through with the procedure of having it changed to my liking. I am THRILLED. It has never felt so good to have that insecurity lifted from me. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, no doubt, GO TO DR. NAYAK!!! He is the best of the best. If he can fix my...

Excellent Results - I Look 10-15 Years Younger After Facelift!

It had been my dream to have a facelift shortly after our youngest was born. I was 40 years old and was hurt by the offhand remarks of people who assumed my son was my grandson!In October 2006, I had a botched job of a blepharoplasty and endotine transbleph forehead lift from a local surgeon in a different office, one that I would never recommend and he is still practicing. I was expecting my...
