Revision After Famous Doctor Did a Little Too Much to the Tip. - Beverly Hills, CA
I need to post. I am looking at Dr. Daniel, Dr....
Going Forward with Dr. Frankel
I met with Dr. Frankel and he's my doctor. I heard he was so expensive but is actually less than two other doctors I met with. He was easy to deal with. Checked my nose and does plenty of revisions from the original doctor, which was Dr. Kanodia. He can harvest cartilage from my nose so I don't have to have rib or ear grafting, thank goodness. He's a lot closer to where I live than Dr. Daniel. I'm scheduling with him in early February. As for Dr. Kanodia--he gave me a pretty nose, it just collapsed over time and the tip is carved out---please if you are considering Kanodia, he has a difficult personality, but I don't think that makes him a bad doctor. I just think in my case, whether due to healing or technique, it has issues. Dr. Frankel gives you anesthesia IV style rather than general and I think for this kind of thing, that makes me feel a bit more comfortable. I just wanted to give you an update. While I LOVE and I mean LOVE Daniel, I'm thinking Frankel is closer to my place. does many revisions from this same doctor and kind of knew what to do. Dr. Daniel can do it too, but he didn't give me a quote yet until he sees Kanodia's original report. Kanodia's nose changed my life. I had an unfortunate nose due to a few breaks. it was so pretty. In photos it was so much better. But, in three years it was gone. I can't tell why. Frankel knew what I needed instantly, I ididn't have to describe it much. He's just fixing the original work. It's not a full reconstruction. He isn't seeing it like that. He thinks it's kind of an easy fix. I'll post photos, if I can. I'm a writer and an actress and I don't like to do that sort of thing. But, due to all the sad people on here, i want to share my original work from Dr. Kanodia and show you what happened to it, then give you a view of the fix so you can make easier decisions. Trying to be brave!! thanks for following my story.
Going Forward with Dr. Frankel on the 29th.
Surgery this thursday with Dr. Frankel.
Revision with Dr. Frankel
So Far So Good with Dr. Frankel's Revision
ALSO--It was Way less than I was initially Quoted. 14,000. NOT 17,000.
I have to say if I am doing a review, I'd rather do a positive one for Dr. Torkian, who hasn't done my nose. But, his compassion and kindness made me feel he cared. He also felt some noses don't heal properly and have issues over time. I need a graft to hold up the sides. I need my nose bigger and smaller. HOw awkward to explain that. Some of the better ---or more well reviewed doctors have this weird ego where you feel like they hate you for just asking a question. Dr. Torkian is amazing. But, I'm still meeting with doctors because I'm not a rich person and this is the absolute last money I have on earth.
