pastorek doesn't do before afters, but my concern with him is that the 2 reviews i found on this website with pics - both complained that their nose was overprojected, and still big/long. they both went on to seek revision. It's not that he botched the nose, but he did not do enough. My nose is longish, and although i don't want a short nose, but i don't want the end result to be another long nose.
dr. pearlman - i really liked the pics on his site. his imaging for me was exactly what i wanted, before i even told him. it was a high bridge, the tip rotation perfect. I have a droppy tip, with no support, so he (like the other docs) will also put a columella strut. I asked him how close the result will be to the pics, and this is where it gets hairy. I didn't like his personality, or attitude. he talks condescendingly to patients, he started asking me what do i do for a living, and if at work do i deliever exactly what was prmised. etc. etc. he said it will be very close, but it will never be exact. I also didn't feel like he was a good listner. he talked over me during the 2 consults i had. even though his imaging was exactly what i envisioned, i'm afraid of his attitude. what if something doens't come out right. will be be a jerk about it ? will i be able to address my concerns to him after the surgery. I kinda don't feel comfortable talking to him now. I'm a sensitive person, and don't like confrontations, so it makes me avoid telling him what i want. I also have to say, i want something very specific done to my nose - tip rotated/lifted just the right amount - the bridge straightened, but not shaved down too much, but be the perfect height - and deprojected just the right amount, without making my nose too small. Because it's an ethnic rhino (i'm indian) , i want results to be conservative enough that I recognize myself.
