From the very start, my experience with Dr. G and his staff was nothing but excellent! I reached out to several plastic surgeons inquiring about a non-surgical nose job, and although they all reached out within 1-2 days, Dr.G’s office demonstrated excellent patient care right off the bat. Their patient coordinator, Ellen, called me and allowed me to come in for a consultation during a time when their office was typically closed! That showed me right away they were very accommodating and caring towards their clients.
During the consultation, Dr. G spent more time than expected answering all of my questions — he explained the different types of fillers, their chemical composition, duration of results, female/male nose structure differences, and possible side effects and risks. Most importantly, we discussed what I didn’t like about my nose and what I would change. More often than not, most plastic surgeons will try to sway you with what they would change, and although an expert opinion is always appreciated, it is VERY important to have your doctor listen to what YOU feel comfortable doing, and what would make YOU happy. Dr. G did just that, and I left the consultation feeling well informed and perfectly confident that I could trust him with my not-so-perfect nose.
Once I returned for my procedure, Dr. G explained every step he was performing. He gave me a numbing agent, and I didn’t feel a thing when he was administering the filler. He has a careful approach when it comes to his patients, so we only administered 1/4th of a syringe to start off. (I chose Restylane filler as this was my first procedure using any type of fillers.) I did experience some tenderness around the bridge of my nose for a few days, but no bruising or swelling. I returned 2 weeks later, and we administered the rest of the syringe in order to obtain a straighter profile of the nose.
I am ecstatic about the results! I showed my family, and I’ll be referring my sister over so she can get this procedure done as well. I’ll definitely be returning every 6-12 months for a touch-up!
Thank you Dr.G!
