2 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Bad experience

Do not go to him for a rhinoplasty. He made my nose appear more crooked than it did before surgery, gave it a pig-like appearance (you can completely see inside my nostrils from both a profile and front view), and messed up my breathing. He helped my dorsal hump, although was too conservative (it still is not straight and definitely doesn't have the slight slope that his photoshopped images...

32, 5'3", 128 Lbs, Tummy Tuck, 250cc Breast Augmentation, 1 Child, Post Major Weight Loss

I have social anxiety and always overthink and worry. From the first consultation to my post surgery visits I've grown to feel very confident and comfortable with the surgeon and practice I chose.

Rhinoplasty Experience with Dr. Michael Leadbetter Cincinnati, OH

I had a rhinoplasty then revision rhinoplasty with Dr Leadbetter, the 1st one in March of 2013, the revision in January of 2014. I chose him because of his supposed amazing reputation. We agreed after the initial surgery that enough just wasn't done, and that I needed a revision, this time being an open rhinoplasty. I wound up with more problems than I started with; a deviated septum, a...
