Dr. Grigoryants-Revision Journey

I had what was supposed to be a finesse rhinoplasty in December 2013 with a double certified Dr. (see my previous review). What was to follow was nothing I ever expected or imagined. It has turned into a long, emotional, painful ordeal that I wish upon no one. When the cast came off, I nearly passed out from how swollen and hideous my nose looked. Instead, I went numb and my brain could not... READ MORE

I had restylane injected into a dip in my nose - Unsure - Washington, DC

I had restylane injected into a dip in my nose that was a result of rhinoplasty, and the remained of the half a syringe into my tear troughs. It was 100% worth it in my nose and made the biggest difference in my profile. I would do it again in a heart beat. I've always had hollows under my eyes and people constantly asked me if I was tired. Frankly, I was tired of being asked if I was tired,... READ MORE

Risk too great-The Nose Makes the Face - Washington, DC

I was the pretty girl but with a wonky, asymmetrical nose. But people that I know and don't know told me I was beautiful all the time. Still, I remember the first time I saw my nose profile. I was 12 years old and I was surprised. I had never really seen my profile. I had a hump develop after puberty. At 17, I would look at my nose in the mirror and see what I could change about it. At 21 I... READ MORE

Questions from Peonia

Tip less bulbous, but nostrils appear flared. Can this be corrected? (Photo)

6 months post op, Is J flaps or z plasty a preferred choice for internal valve collapse?

Thank you! Hope you have a great experience! READ COMMENT

He does do revisions. But he turns away some cases. Email him. READ COMMENT

I did not. It didn't make sense to. If it's done right it shouldn't look bad! READ COMMENT
