5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

College Student - Houston, TX

Dr. Funk did an amazing job! He knows his stuff. He is highly qualified and shows professional bedside manner along with answering all questions. My nose looks very natural, recovery time was minimal (no bruising!), and he and his staff check-up on you during your recovery. There was very little pain involved and moderate discomfort. Dr. Funk is the man if you're looking for a rhinoplasty and want AMAZING results.

Loving my new nose! - still look like myself! - Houston, TX

After another consultation with a different surgeon I decided to have my surgery with Dr Funk because overall, I felt more comfortable with him and more confident that I would get the outcome I desired. At my initial consultation, Dr Funk took his time to examine my nose and explain what could be done to correct the issues I had with it, he also showed me many before and after pictures of the surgeries he had done and many of his patients had the same issues I had and had acheived amazing results. I also liked the fact that Dr Funk is double board certified not only in cosmetic surgery but also in ENT (ear, nose and throat) and only performs surgeries on the face which means he does significantly more rhinoplasties that a surgeon that performs procedures on the entire body. I felt that if I was going to entust my face to a surgeon then they needed to be an expert in the field. After my initial consultation, Dr Funk followed up with a letter which was a nice personal touch. I think I booked my surgery the week following my consultation. I dealt with Leah, who is his patient liason and she was awesome. So sweet and explained everything to me. Dr Funk operates at a hospital as well as an outpatient surgery center and I decided to book my surgery at the outpatient surgery center as it was closer to where I live and I would be able to be discharged faster after the surgery. I used Care Credit to finance part of my surgery and they worked with me on that and explained their agreement with them. 2 weeks before the surgery I had another consultation to go over my pre and post-op instructions and ask Dr Funk any questions I might have before the surgery. Again he took his time and didn't make me feel rushed like some doctors do. The day of the surgery he came and talked to me before they took me back and that night after I got home, he called to check how I was doing and let me know that everything had gone very well. I will also add, that the surgery center and their staff were all great and I would definitely go there again given the choice. Following the surgery, I had post-op appointments to remove my cast and sutures which was a breeze. Dr Funk was very gentle so I barely felt anything. 2 days after that I had another appointment to remove some taping and the remaining sutures and I got to see my results for the first time. I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery and with Dr Funk and all his staff. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to him for any facial procedures in the future and I would highly recommend him if you are considering a rhinoplasty in the Houston area.

Hooding Eyelids Made Me Self-conscious - Houston, TX

Dr. Funk is very professional and a great surgeon. The results of the blepharoplasty surgery are very natural looking, no one would even know I had anything done because my eyelids now look like they should...no more hooding. Dr. Funk's office staff and the surgery center staff are all very pleasant, professional, and gave great care and follow-up. I would definitely recommend the Dr. Funk and the procedure to anyone who is considering it.
