5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

36 Years Old. Broken Nose and Septum - Manhattan, NY

Dr. Liotta is not only an unbelievable surgeon but an amazing human being. She fully explains your procedure, walks you through the process step by step and makes you feel as though you are her only patient and she has all the time in the world for you. With two surgeries you would think I might be apprehensive about the procedures but I did not have a single worry knowing I was in dr. Liottas hands. any questions or concerns that I had were squashed instantly by sending her an email and she would respond immediately. she is the ONLY doctor to go to. She is extremely thourogh, professional, meticulous, and caring. I would highly recommend dr. Liotta to anyone and everyone. I had to get the surgeries because I was assaulted. In the assault my nose and septum were fractured. The first surgery was done to align my nose. The second surgery was much more invasive. The skin in between my nostrils was cut (and I got stitches there). My septum was rebuilt, dr. Liotta Also shaved down a bump and rebuilt a curve that had occured during the recovery from the assault. My nose is perfectly straight now, the area that dr Liotta had stitched up healed perfectly there isn't even a scar there. My nose was extremely sensitive for at least 8 weeks after the surgery and going into the tenth week after surgery the tip of my nose is still sensitive but it is very minor. For a few days after surgery I was extremely congested. Saline solution worked the best for me. I used it at least 4 times a day probably even more. I also steamed myself (boiled a pot of water, put my face over it with a towel covering my head), this also seemed to work very well for me. I got the surgeries because I had no choice. This was not elective surgery. I don't regret any of the surgeries and if I had to do it all over again i would it was worth it. Dr Liotta is the only surgeon I would ever go to for any type of facial surgery. Words can't describe how amazing she truly is. I am beyond happy with my results. After the assault I was worried I'd never look like my old self again but dr Liotta made me look like my old self but even better. She made a very traumatic time in my life 100 times more bearable. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that I was put into her care.

Revision Rhinoplasty - Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Surgeon! - New York, NY

I found Dr. Liotta almost by accident. I had already been to a highly recommended surgeon on Park Avenue and was in the final stages of planning the surgery when a friend suggested I get a second opinion. It had been revealed during the consultation process with my the first surgeon that in addition to the cosmetic issues from my first rhinoplasty there was also an impact to my breathing...

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

I Can Breathe! - New York

After breaking my nose twice (once as a child and again recently), I ended up with a severely deviated septum that was blocking both nasal passages and significantly limiting my airflow. My nose was also a bit crooked from the breaks and I wanted it straightened as well since I needed surgery anyway. I visited several doctors (one ENT and two facial plastic surgeons, including Dr. Liotta). ...

The Best -New York, NY

One of the nicest woman that I have met. Dr. Dara Liotta made me so comfortable and calm about the procedure. She explained everything fully to my mom and me before the surgery and kept my mom in the loop while I was recovering. I recommend her for anyone who is nervous about plastic surgery and wants a trustworthy doctor in NYC.

Sleeping for the First Time in 20 Years. Revision of 10 Year Old Septoplasty - Manhattan, NY

I haven't slept well in years because of an accident I had as a child. I had a septoplasty when I was younger; however, it was not as successful as I would have hoped as that surgery was performed by a surgeon who did not specialize in ENT. As a result, I have had chronic sleep issues. Now in 2015, I needed to a have a revision of the 10 year old septoplasty. Dr. Liotta (and Dr....

Amazing First Surgery Experience - New York, NY

From the first time I met Dr. Liotta, I knew that she was extremely professional and confident in her field. After speaking to her for about a half hour, I felt comfortable enough to make an appointment for my first surgery ever. She is very welcoming, along with the rest of her staff, and knew the answer to anything I could have asked. From then until the time of my surgery, I never had a...

Non-surgical Nose Job to Correct Dip in Nose - New York, NY

I'd always been self-conscious about my nose as it was unsymmetrical and had a prominent dip on one side which looked especially bad from a 3/4 profile angle. I had looked into surgical rhinoplasty but I'm nervous about surgery and the long recovery time prevented it from being a viable option. I heard about non-surgical rhinoplasty from a few articles and set up a consultation with Dr Liotta....

Liquid Rhino for Small Dip in Nose - New York, NY

Dr. Liotta is absolutely amazing, she has great bedside manner, her staff is awesome. I was hesitant to do the liquid rhino (nose filler) because I didn't want to alter my face but the issue I had with my nose was bothersome in pictures. Dr. Liotta gave me a little filler and I feel amazing, my side profile is great and I'm so happy I decided to go with her. Plus 10% off on your bday month...

5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

Simply the Best... New York, NY

Dr. Liotta is the consummate professional. She goes over and beyond each time I have visited her (roughly 4 times). Dr. Liotta gives such attention to detail, and spends as much time in my face as needed. There's never a rush to get to the next client, and she answers all questions--even via email! Her time, effort and care is definitely worth my trip into the city. Overall, she's...

NYC Hand Lift for hand rejuvenation

The hands go through a lot in a day, and they are so neglected! We think we’re being “good”, using a gentle cleanser, toner, targeted serum, moisturizer with sunscreen on our face, but what about our hands?? Like any other part of the body, the skin on the hands needs to be attended to. With time, the skin on the hands loses elasticity, the skin develops brown spots from sun exposure, and the veins and tendons become more prominent with surrounding volume loss. Hands age, and they...
