5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

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

Firstly, I think it is important to note that I am a college student with an aspiration to attend medical school in the near future. Because of my aspiration, I have shadowed, worked for, volunteered, and developed personal relationships with various plastic surgeons, all of which perform rhinoplasty. I must say, Dr. Nayak cannot be remotely compared to another cosmetic surgeon with his impeccable talent. (I did not have any prior experience with Dr. Nayak. I read reviews online, and that’s how I found him!) I have learned that a “certified plastic surgeon” has completed residency and passed his/her boards. Cool, but there’s not a certification to help patients decipher between the “certified plastic surgeon,” and the “certified plastic surgeon with a good eye and great personal taste that can exceed your expectations, gain your trust, and make you beautiful!” Potential patients have to rely on the reviews of the experienced for the legitimate truth, and the truth lies in Dr. Nayak's patients' testimonials. Notice that he has a perfect rating on several websites? I was slightly skeptical at first too, because I had never stumbled upon a surgeon who managed to please every single patient. BUT, I have to say, after my rhinoplasty and overall experience, I have jumped on the bandwagon - all of those reviews are indubitably accurate. Dr. Nayak is an exceptional plastic surgeon (understatement) with a perfect eye for cosmetic surgery. He does have great bedside manner. He is a perfectionist. His staff is polite, organized, and professional. We (us patients) are lucky that Dr. Nayak chose the cosmetic/reconstructive profession instead of another route. Dr. Nayak superseded all of my expectations. (I was quite surprised considering I make a 2-hour drive twice a month to receive a decent eyebrow wax. Yes, THAT particular.) I had my rhinoplasty over a year ago, and I have waited so long to write a review, because I know there is nothing I can say that will truly do Dr. Nayak justice. He is officially my go-to for any cosmetic surgery-related need.

Happiest Girl in the World - Saint Louis, MO

Out of the few surgeons I consulted with, Dr. Nayak was by far the only one who understood exactly what I wanted immediately! It was so refreshing dealing with a talented and compassionate professional that understands modern beauty standards. His results speak for themselves and I am incredibly happy to say that my operation exceeded my expectations.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

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

Unbelievable result and terrific care. The office staff is incredibile and helpful. The other thing I would mention that I love about Nayak Plastic Surgery is that they care about quality not quantity. When my mother-in-law saw Dr. Nayak for a face lift consultation, he was very candid and honest with her about why he didn’t really recommend she undergo the procedure. He explained that because of the condition of her skin and her age, she probably wouldn’t get the outcome she expected. It gave us confidence to know that Dr. Nayak wouldn’t perform a procedure where he wouldn’t be satisfied with the result.

The Best Of The Best - St. Louis, MI

I am a cosmetic surgeon from Massachusetts and have been friends of Dr Mike for about 5 years. After meeting Dr Mike at multiple AACS meetings and speaking with top facial plastic surgeons in this country, it immedialy became apparent that Dr Mike was the best of the best. He also is one of the kindest, friendliest, and compassionate physicians I have met. I travelled 2000 miles to have my surgery with Dr Mike, I would have travelled 4000 miles if I had to.

Pleased with Face-lift for Jowls, Neck and Profile

First, let me say that I am not related to my Dr., don't work for him and never even knew anyone from St. Louis until I went there, but he and his staff are the best. My consultations and pre-ops with the other three surgeons were very brief. After talking to this surgeon, I knew what could happen, what to look for if something was happening, what his record was for complications and what areas could and would be improved and what could/would not be improved. Since I was from out-of-town, he made hotel-calls and sent staff to pick me up once my husband had left and before I was able to drive safely. He gave my husband and me his cell number prior to surgery and he and his staff continued to check on me weeks after the surgery. I've had other surgeries in addition to the plastic surgeries and I've never had anything close to this level of care.

Homework Paid off - St. Louis

He's brilliant. He gave me a result that was exactly what I had hoped for - one that is exceptionally natural. He was able to retain what makes me look like me which I suspect isn't as easy as it might sound. He listened and patiently answered and addressed my questions and concerns. The post-op care was beyond exceptional. I just really think there is no one better.

Couldn't Be Happier - Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Nayak is incredibly talented and has such an amazing staff. I hope this review convinces anyone thinking about the procedure to choose him! And if you do decide to go through with the procedure, don’t be nervous!! Many, many, many other people have gone in and out of that facility without any problems and I can say, me being one of them, I have never made a better decision!! This has definitely changed my life for the better!

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Beyond Thrilled! - St Louis, MO

Due to a sudden weight loss, I had sunken cheeks and bags/hollows under my eyes. I'm 35 and contantly looked worn out and gaunt. I'd seen several surgeons and was told everything from "no options" to "cheek implants", "face lift", etc. I'd tried Restylane in the tear troughs and it was gone within 5 days and the doc told me I just metabolized it quickly. I was so frustrated with nothing seeming to work. I started to look for a doc that specialized in face surgery, hoping for a solution. I found Dr. N, 4 hours away, but I'm so glad I did. He was very warm but also professional. He laid out my options and I decided to try the Restylane again, after he explained that it probably did not metabolize, but settled and needed a refill (which the previous doc didn't offer). We did it in the tear troughs and make an appointment for a touch-up in 3 weeks. He was right; it looked great at first, but it settled and needed a little bit more. When I came back I asked him what he thought about my cheeks. He felt confident filler would correct it. I agreed and when he finished and I looked in the mirror, I was floored - after almost 2 years of looking like I suffered from wasting disease, I looked healthy again! I'm so grateful that I didn't have to go through cheek implants or a facelift at 35. In 5 minutes it was solved! He really knows his stuff!!

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

I made a mistake with the first plastic surgeon not understanding the terminalogy. Do you homework. Look up every word and understand what that medical word and procedure means. Talk to other patients who have had the procedures done you are inquiring about. Hire a surgeon who specializes in your procedures. Do not go to someone who does breast to operate on your face! You will understand why I highly recommend my doctor after you see my before and after pictures.
