Unhappy Menick patient - where next?

Unhappy Menick patient - where next?

Postby gigi70 » Mon May 15, 2017 10:16 am

It's been around 4 years since Dr Menick revised my nose. It was upturned/short from a primary but had definition on the tip. When Dr Menick took my cast off I cried, and it's got no better since. It was overly lengthened and made very very wide (he put in spreader grafts which I did not want). The tip is very masculine and wide. It's incredibly large for my face, and I hate my photos taken still.

When I take pics, I have to photoshop my nose to define it.

I had a consult with Pastorek, who agreed it was bulbous and not feminine. He said because of the grafting he wouldn't shorten it and just narrow the tip. But I have an ugly tip at the bottom, the columella is very rounded and long now. I liked Pastorek and am considering him, does anyone else know who is great for 2nd revision in NYC? I am not going to be able to do this out of town I do not think.

Any experience with Steven Pearlman?

Hi Gigi...I know you don't want to go out of NYC...but if you could, by any chance, just get down to Maryland, I would go see Dr. Thomas Le. He really makes sure he and the patient are on the same page and he is extremely precise. His operations are generally lenghthy in time because he is a perfectionist. I had my primary rhinoplasty revised, for breathing problems, at a local plastic surgeons office, and I have regretted ir ever since. If I would have traveled an extra hour to Dr. Les' office I think I would have been a lot happier with my revision. Just a thought and best of luck with your journey.
