Shervin Naderi, MD, FACS

3 out of 5 stars

This review is for consultation only. My review on another site got removed so I doubt this one will last long either but I think patients need to be informed so here goes: I saw Dr. Naderi in consultation twice, once in Chevy Chase for a rhinoplasty consultation and once in Herndon for a consultation for injectables. Though he has pretty good bedside manner and made me comfortable... READ MORE

Subtle but Noticeable Results

I recently got one syringe of Restylane injected in my tear troughs and one syringe of Voluma in my upper cheeks. I'm very pleased with my subtle results. I need more for full correction but I don't want to spend the money right now... I'm hoping to get a little more in 6 months or so provided what I have holds up pretty well. READ MORE

So Worth It!!!

I have been feeling really depressed over my loss of midface volume and dark circles over the past year or so due to stress and lack of sleep. My husband didn't want me to get injectables. He said it would screw up my face and be too expensive. I was sneaky and did it today without telling him. I figure it's my body and I have a job so what he doesn't know won't hurt him. So far, I am over... READ MORE

September Surgery Booked With Jonathan Pontell

I have been reading a lot of reviews on Realself and wanted to share my own experience to hopefully help others and maybe get feedback from others in my area who have had rhinoplasties. I am undecided on my surgeon but am heavily leaning towards one in particular. If the consultation goes well, I will definitely be going with him because his office is close to where I live and he is very... READ MORE

Questions from IRGirl

I had surgery 19 months ago on my palm. This exacerbated a Dupuytren's diasthesis and I had significant scarring. My finger contracted 26 degrees in the months following the... READ MORE

How much Voluma is required to see a difference?

I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon who said he starts his patients out with three or four syringes of Voluma and works his way up, yet I have seen many online reviews... READ MORE

Should a deviated septum be corrected during rhinoplasty if there are no breathing issues?

I have a deviated septum but no breathing issues. I feel that my nose has become more crooked over the last year or so an has developed a bump on the bridge. The surgeon who I... READ MORE

Recent comments from IRGirl

Yeah, I didn't want anyone else's opinion. I do wonder if people will notice though. Though I'm probably far from my end result, I feel like the shape of my nose seems very different. A lot of people who have rhinoplasties say no one... READ COMMENT

I actually haven't told anyone. haha My husband knows since he took my to the surgery and he has told a few of his family members but I haven't told anyone. I think I'll probably tell my mom later today but don't plan to tell anyone... READ COMMENT

Yes, I'm so afraid I'm going to roll over on it though. I think I might just continue sleeping elevated with my travel pillow for another week since I haven't had any trouble sleeping that way. READ COMMENT

Thank you! It's very swollen right now but hopefully it will start to go down in the next week or so. READ COMMENT
