Re: Dr. Tobias?
May 1, 2005
I had surgery with him in 1999. Let's just say that I would not go back. I am now looking for a revision rhinoplasty surgeon to fix the breathing problems that I now have, that doctors have stated are a direct result of the '99 surgery. I have a collapsed valve, slight deviated septum (which wasn't there before), and turbinate problem. Also, my nose barely looks any different. I asked him why, up until a year after the surgery, and he said it was swelling. When the appearence was still the same after one year, he admitted to me, "Well, yes, your nose is a little bigger than you or I would have liked." I wasn't really satisfied with this explanation...? Anyway that's all, would not recommend. Im looking at Dr. Toriumi in Chicago, I heard he's fantastic.

Hi. I have to be careful with my words so that I don't say anything that could get me in trouble.... As of right now, I have serious breathing problems that have been confirmed by other doctors to be a direct result of the rhinoplasty I had in 1999. I did not have these problems before that surgery. Anyway, about a week or two after surgery, I noticed a huge (bad) difference in my breathing. I told him at that point, "I can't breathe." He looked up there and said "I don't see anything." I have gone to two other doctors since then: one ENT doctor and Dr. Romo, who is a plastic surgeon in NYC. They both looked up there and saw several different problems. Let's just say that I find it hard to believe that Tobias didn't see anything. So, therefore, since my problems are a result of that rhinoplasty, I would rather put my trust into another doctor to fix the problem. I would not feel comfortable going back to the same doctor who did the surgery that caused my problems. Therefore, I did not ask him for any kind of fixes.

Hello Katherineutc....I also have the same problems as you. I have had 4 rhinoplasy surgeries, and now have a collaspsed valve too, and a deviated septum. I too never saw much difference in the appearance of my nose. All I got out of all those surgeries was a nose that I can't breath out of now. I need some help finding [COLOR=Red]THE BEST RHINOPLASTY SPECIALIST[/COLOR]. PLEASE PLEASE ANYONE that has had any sort of success with a Dr. please let me know your story plus who your Dr. was. I am trying to get two surgeries done at once. I want to have revision rhinoplasty plus breast augmentation. I want a Dr. that is great at both. I was going to try Dr. Brad Jacobs. Has anyone heard of Dr. Brad Jacobs? Katherineutc have you found a Dr. that has helped you get that cute nose you want plus fix your breathing? Anyone please write me if you have some advise for me. I am going to travel any where to fix my nose.

Hey guys -- definitely check out Toriumi. I'm having my primary rhinoplasty with him on Monday (soooo nerve wrecking!). I have definitely done a lot of research on this guy; so far, all I've heard is good stuff. He's very expensive, but come on -- it's your face, it's worth it! The only complaint so far is that he's not [I]that [/I] personable. He's very professional and gets down to business. However, his office staff is very nice. WISH ME LUCK!!

whonoseII, Have you gone back to Dr. Tobias for a post-op check-up and did you tell him your concerns? I know what you are feeling like b/c I, too, did not have a great rhinoplasty and was extremely upset all the time because of it. But you really shouldn't be so upset all the time, I know that it is very disappointing to go in with high hopes and think that you are going to look a 100% better, but just the opposite happens. I feel that these sucky surgeons who practice and do botched jobs shouldn't get the best of us. Right now I am looking for a revision surgeon to hopefully fix things that my incompetent first surgeon, Dr. Milch, messed up. I wish you all the best!!
