Feedback on Dr. Richard Davis

Feedback on Dr. Richard Davis

Postby amber_c26 » Mon Jan 09, 2017 9:42 am

Hi all- I am in desperate need of a revision rhinoplasty due to my significant breathing problems and inability to sleep due to them. This surgery will involve rebuilding my nose as the previous surgeon made it too small. I have a consultation with Dr. Richard Davis in March and of course I am terrified as this will be my third surgery. Can anyone give me firsthand feedback on Dr. Davis? Really appreciate anyone's help.

I would also love to hear first hand feedback. I've been in touch with an old member of this board marmar84 and she sent me photos of her revision with Davis. The results are incredible. I'm in need of revision for an aggressively shortened nose/pollybeak-ish/bulbous situation.

Would love to hear from others too...

littlenosie- are you also having breathing problems? Did marmar84? Just trying to get a feel for his ability to correct functional problems as well...

I am very confused about this doctor because he has many negative reviews but it does not seem to affect people considering him. His wait time for a consultation is about 1 year. This makes one believe that he is very good and that the negative reviews are the ones that seem to get noticed. Still skeptical. Any ideas?

I agree with you Nosey11. I am worried about the negative reviews. I am not sure what you are looking for in terms of rhinoplasty revision but another surgeon I am now curious about is Dr. Lee Myung Ju who is actually located in Seoul, Korea. Because my main problem is function due to an overly resected nose I am trying to find more information about him in terms of his expertise in functional correction. He is associated with a clinic referred to as VIP and in looking through the pictures it appears they have the most expertise with rebuilding the nose as they are often doing this with Asian noses. However, I am trying to find more information as the clinic's website is not all I would like to rely on. What is it you are looking for in terms of rhinoplasty revision?

hi! I had surgery with Davis in May I think he's an artist for overly shortened noses. I did have breathing problems which were fixed, feel free to email me at tuliptulee@yahoo.com and I can share my story and photos if you'd like. I am still healing so I have good and bad nose days when I think is too swollen or looks big on me but none of that has to do with the surgeon, more so my perception day by day. My morph and my actual outcome are so similar its pretty crazy they can be so close. I like my actual result mire than my morph.

Rhinoplasty is quite the psychological journey to say the least. My first 5 months of healing were very hard because it was so swollen and huge and I came from the most tiny petite stump of a nose my swollen nose was hard to handle. I have been getting continued refinement each month. It takes a lot of patience especially a complicated revision with a lot of grafts because your healing journey is much longer than your primary and completely different.

He does hundred of surgeries so he's bound to have some people leave negative reviews, you can't please them all. And sometimes patients have unrealistic expectations. But for overly shortened noses I would say that is Davis's specialty. Every stumpy/short nose I have seen him revise are beautiful.. I saw Marmar84's pictures and she is absolutely stunning. During your consultation he will show you many many noses like yours and all the ones I saw he created such gorgeous noses. My consult was 2-3 hours of showing his work and discussing. I was just in for my 7 month post op a few weeks ago and another girl was in the waiting room and her nose was absolutely beautiful as well.

I'm happy to answer any questions though so email me on here or the email i listed above. i don't check on here as frequently but i will get back to you

I found your comment shameful, because you have every right to tell your experience with Dr. Davis, but not you have the right to discredit other patients who have had a bad experience ( supporting simply that patients sometimes have unrealistic expectations) with the only purpose of advertise the doctor quoted.

Give it a rest man, you are relentless.. I didn't specify any names of patients who had unrealistic expectations... I said SOMETIMES SOME people have unrealistic expectations. Thats not a shameful statement that is true. That in no way means every single person who has something negative to say about him is unrealistic.. some people just do. I have unrealistic expectations sometimes. As much as I wanted my primary to make me look like a victoria secret model with a new nose that didn't happen, its unrealistic. My aesthetic was improved but then it left me with other issues I wanted addressed with a revision. Even with this revision I did not expect this much swelling or long a of a healing time I had unrealistic expectations of this outcome as well but I am able to realize my own faults in those thoughts and not go on a bashing spree about him. Other people have similar expectations thinking changing a nose or other plastic surgery will completely change how they look and sometimes with any surgery outcome is not completely foreseeable and new issues can arise. It was just a brief example I was in no way attacking anyone for having a bad experience with him. I am sorry for those that have not got the result they want. I also said he does hundreds of surgeries and not everyone will be happy. Yes I'm sure he has bad outcomes sometimes. Are you 100% at your job every single day. Peoples healing can also affect their outcome which the surgeon cannot control but patients don't see it that way. There are a number of things that can cause bad outcomes.

So yes I have a right to talk about my experience as do you but you don't need to stalk every single post about Davis and interject to trash him. We all know you hate Davis and your nose we get it. Any post I make on Davis you are commenting and sending me private message to continue to say how much you think he sucks. We get it! seriously I'm sure I speak for many on here. It is fine to chime in but you don't need to attack every person who says something nice about him. I accept that you had a bad outcome, now accept me shedding positive light on my experience without calling me shameful or messaging me that I'm misleading people. I am emailing my photos and telling my experience patients can do with it what they will

I repeat again, you have every right to tell your positive experience with Dr. Davis and affirm in same time that it is the best doctor in the world in rhinoplasty, but no one it gives you the right to advertise this doctor at the expense of other patients who have had a bad experience with him, with of the disparaging statements..
It is evident that your comment not he was referring to my personally, because you've had the arrogance and presumption of disrespect to other patients. Complments!

Libutti,

As the moderator, I'm requesting you to STOP personalizing other people's favorable experience with this doctor AS IF if it's an 'insult' to you. It isn't. NOR is it 'disrespectful' to unhappy patients of the doctor for him to have happy ones posting.

You need to STOP going on the attack as to shame happy patients for posting and/or accusing them of doing something 'wrong' by doing so.
Please Note: NO PMs please.

Private correspondence with me concerning questions highly specific to your situation is not an extension of my open participation on the boards.

Had a rhino with him about 10 years ago and, am not at all happy. My breathing is not nearly as good as it was before the surgery. And over the last few years, the graphs have started to show. My tip is still hard from the grafts, so I can't even smush or wipe my nose like a normal person can. I am not convinced the grafts were needed at all. Other docs I spoke to did not recommend grafts, but at the time that technique seemed to be at the forefront of what the new, acclaimed docs were using. Furthermore, the nose doesn't even look good. The tip is too large for my face.

I am considering a revision with another doctor, but don't know if I want to go through the whole thing again, or just live with it. It's not horrible. Just not good. And not even better than what I started out with.
