Are you a patient of Christopher R. Hove, MD?
Hello everyone, I'm pretty new to this but I recently started looking around for the best place to get my rhinoplasty done. I've always been pretty self conscious about my nose but I feel as I've gotten older its gotten worse. I hate taking pictures and when I do they are painstakingly posed so as not to get the beaklike appearance my nose has :( I found Dr. Hove through some of the great...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Hove visited me and spoke about what he was going to do. We spoke a little about literature, but he wanted to make sure I would be happy with our choices. I cannot thank him enough. His kindness and careful hands changed my life!!!
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Hove is the best! He sets real expectations and has an incredibly warm personality which is a must when you're about to go under the knife. I couldn't be more excited to see the "artwork" when my surgery is complete.
I choose Dr. Christoper Hove as I thought he was very respectful and informative during our 45 min consult. He only does facial plastics which is what I wanted. He did the digital imaging and we tweaked it together. He answered all my questions and went over all my concerns. He seems very down to earth and easy to talk to. I also asked for referrals since there were no reviews of him on this site..one of my biggest concerns about booking him....but after talking with one of his recent patients whose before nose seemed similar to mine she assured me he was a great doctor and she was very pleased with her results. I hope I choose the right doctor...time will tell!
I have heard nothing but great things about this doctor! I am excited to be working with him.
Your face is our specialty. Our medical practice is dedicated solely to plastic surgery of the face and neck. The hallmark of our work is to provide a natural non-surgical appearing better version of you. In fact, we prefer if our work is not easily recognized as "having work done" at all!
