does anyone agree surgeon raj kanodia is overrated?
i hear he only does primary rhinoplasty (which is MUCH easier than a secondary) and after seeing ashley tisdale's nose and it's only like 3 months post-op imagine what that shnoze will look like in 10 years, it will be identical to mj's! anyone have reviews?

i heard that Dr. Kanodia did Hugh Hefner's numero uno from the Girls Next Door, Holly. She seems to have came out well with her rhinoplasty from what I remember.

Raj Kanodia- Ruined my Nose for life. Nightmare
This man is a horrible person and you will notice the moment you walk in. He rushes you through any consultation misleading you that he understands what you have in mind but is really just trying to get the next patient in. He has had made millions off these tactics saying he is a "genius of proportions". He is simply pushing a assembly line of noses to which he does not care about anything other than cashing in doing the same routine. He defers any problems that happen for liability by bullying and blaming his clients for any trauma was a result of his actions. Now I have to wake up daily with the botched surgery he preformed, it is like a nightmare you cannot wake up from. He lifted my nose and now I look like Michael Jackson, my old nose was much better. Please don't make the same mistake, this guy needs to be held accountable for what he is doing to all the good people he is ruining. He treats everyone like cattle and shows up to work in sneakers partied out from the night before. You be the judge look how he operates and take head to the warning signs. 100% do NOT recommend - 100% worst regret of my life.

Dr. Kanodia is not as good as he claims to be.
You will see that he worked well for Ashlee Simpson
but he worked very bad for Ashley Tisdale.

Dr Kanodia is not great
I got a rhinoplasty from Dr Kanodia because I broke my nose as a kid. I went to him because like many of you I thought he was the best and when your getting a rhinoplasty your scared to get it from just anyone. When I first went in he seemed cold and mean but I thought it was okay since he was the best. Truth is he doesn't seem to care about his patients anymore. I still have a deviated septum and I had written, called and talked to Dr Kanodia about another procedure but instead he just gave me injections in my nose and said I should come back every 6 months or so. If your going to get a rhinoplasty, check the doctor's record and research his work and how he handles patients. I am still unhappy with my nose and have a hard time breathing but I'm broke right now and have to wait to get a second rhinoplasty. So just be careful if you do chose Dr. Kanodia.

Ashlee Simpson; who actually did the work?
I have to wonder in some cases with celebrities about who actually does the surgical work....

Because sometimes when you compare the celebrity work to the non-celebrity work, it seems like day and night....

Does the surgeon get assistance from other surgeons, or does he farm-out the work to someone who can do it.... or, does he just spend a major inordinate amount of time working on the celebrity patient, as opposed to the non-celebrity....

Something HAS to be different....

not happy with nosejob? show pics-
I am curious to see before and after's from those of you who were not happy with your nose jobs- and describe what you would have changed: more bump removed, smaller tip, etc

Everyone should be warned that many plastic surgeons are super aggressive with their marketing and reputation management and have people go on plastic surgery forums to either drum up support for the doctor their representing and/or talk down the biggest competitors. A lot of this slander about Dr. Raj Kanodia sounds like that to me. I have heard nothing but good things about him from people who have had consults and surgeries with him. This stuff about his partying is laughable. He is an older Indian man that is very by the books. I can't imagine him doing these things. He's a good guy from what I know.

Raj did my nose back in 99. I agree with the previous person who said he does good profile work, but poor "fontal" work. I've noticed that over the last few years the tip of my nose is growing on one side only....I want to get a revision. I want my nose like Angelina Jolies or Eva Longoria...but don't know who to go to... I don't want to look like I got a nose job! I live in las vegas, nv...does anyone know of any docs that do good work???

Great marketer; horrible rhinoplasty
Here's my opinion: R.K. is brilliant at marketing. However, he's a cookie-cutter chop-shop when it comes to noses. If the camera is rolling, he'll perform well. But he works in an out patient office with no other surgeons, so he's not held accountable for his work (unless he's being filmed). So like any human, he performs only when he has to.

I had rhinoplasty performed by him. It's the biggest regret of my life. My nose looks infinitely worse now than before. I pray I could go back and change my decision to undergo that horrific elective surgery.

He essentially chopped off my nose. It's hurt both professionally and personally. Make no mistake, people will know you had a nose job, especially if you get one by this brilliant marketer who will not hesitate to butcher your nose after you sign his required liability waiver.

If you want to destroy your physical identity, he's the guy for you. Rest assure, he will not perform well if he's not held to task by a media spotlight. He'll absolutely butcher your nose. Again, this is only an opinion from my experience with him.
