Augmentation Revision - restoration-want my face back!

Augmentation Revision - restoration-want my face back!

Postby Rhinosucks » Mon Dec 04, 2017 8:53 pm

Has anyone consulted with and have any feedback with Dr Davis (fl); Dr Swartout (cali); Dr Thomas le (md); Dr Pearlman (NY).
see Pearlman next week. Saw dr le and dr swartout. see davis in january. and then dr le and swartout again. deciding, surgery planned (well goal) for march

I need my bridge restored 2 mm- want my natural contours back; longer nose with a completely reconstructed tip; derotated and projected full tip.

My tip was unique and I cannot believe he got me to sign consent for partial rhino last second, no surgical plan, he just said "if something happens, might as well while I am in there, I know you like your nose, a smidgen.."
woke up shocked and devastated. still am. Its been 11.2 months of hell.

so I had beautiful long elegant nose with thin narrow high bridge and a unique full greek tip. its sick what he did and said nothing different, "I know you like your nose" Miss my face. Almost 50, never planned this, my doctor gutted me.

I need rib grafts.Significant major reconstruction. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

I didn't see his work when I was there. I did have a friend who had revision with him and he did a good job with her bridge and tip.
But I didn't see any other patients results when I was there with him, we didn't get to that.

I consulted with Davis, Le, Pearlman. At this point I am most likely to go with Pearlman. I have done extensive research on this doctor. I emailed his past fellows that trained under him, emailed docs across the street from him to see their opinion, since if he did bad work, they would find out through revisions. Everything checks out. His peers gave him raving reviews. I cant say I have found a bad result by him. I have found some mediocre results, but nothing really bad. On his website I think all of his pictures are amazing. They look completely natural. The biggest cons are his marketing. He has like 10 websites all directing general google searches back to him. Also, his pictures he took in his office were off angled, so useless really. They made my radix look too low, then he recommended a radix graft, based off the bad picture.

did you not like Dr Le or dr Davis?

Did you get to talk to actual pearl man patients? i have spoken with happy and unhappy dr le and davis patients. I cant seem to find one pearlman actual patient.

when will you have surgery? what do you need?

I actually talked to Swartout again. he said getting the same size bridge and length is unlikely with revision and he knows anything short of waking up to my old nose and look wont make me happy since I never sought rhino.I had great natural nose and he's sorry my primary did whatever he wanted, and he did a lot. Removed all my cartilage in my tip and lowered my bridge 2 mm, its so ugly, Swartout said the character of my nose can never come back, especially based on the amount of reconstruction needed.

So he suggested Tiroumi or others who build up bridges more. He was honest, the amount of augmentation I need is not something he felt comfortable with, and I think the level of trauma I have as well concerned him re my expectations.
He is very honest and actually cares about having happy patients and restoring confidence and natural aesthetic. He told me the amount of bridge i need to get back my old look wont look right...so i need to figure out my next moves..

I wish my primary cared that I liked my nose, refused to sign consent, that I disagreed I had a hump and disagreed my nose was too long, He never mentioned amputating my entire in the process.i signed because he said no difference "i know you like your nose", i believed him..no structural changes or changes to size of nose...... I was there for septum and just wanted to breathe, I wanted to get started...soo stupid I wish I left every damn day.Versus him grinning ear to ear when my cast came off that this size nose suits me better...half my nose, no bridge or tip and I wanted to die at that moment, Whats not different???, what happened to you knew I liked my nose......he says "well your tip was bulbous and projected and most women don't want that, and this bridge is more feminine, its only 2 mm difference at each angle..."
So i continue; I have yet to meet a happy revision patient who needed significant bridge augmentation and a bulbous projected tip restored. If you are out there please reach out.
Nightmare continues...keeping hope alive..

meeting dr le again.
rescheduling davis.
considering bared....someone recommended cerkes in Turkey.
Considered Pearlman, Calvert and Nassif but I have not seen patients who needed what I need.

Toriumi might be a good choice if you want a full tip. Not that I would trust him personally, but you could be one of the lucky ones.

Bared off list. had skype. He was 2 hours late to call.and looked ay my natural profile and now and said no wont look same with revision. He's doing what my primary should have done, say no surgery. He did a lot to change my nose..
Yes, I know. for someone who didnt seek rhino I am gutted.

So I olan to see Dr Le again end of March .
Se Dr Davis mid March.\
Any need significant bridge augmentation, an ethnic tip restored, and significant length please please please reach out.

and anyone who had bridge with rib overlay and length with rib, how does it feel? any tips? questions I should ask.

the different schools of thought on rib overlay versus dcf confused me a bit, but seems like rib overlay is the way to go.

Oh I did see DR Jason R. at UCLA like him a lot but he didnt have enough rib revision experience for me and doesnt focus only on nose, or morph. But he seemed confident he could "restore what I lost". he was very nice for those searching for doctors who dont need rib and extensive revision.
