California revision, bay area preferred
 
hi everyone,
I know there are some threads requesting reccomendations for CA revision doctors, but I'm looking for some information on specific doctors:
Has anyone had a revision with dr. Hilinski? Can anyone reccomend any good doctors in the bay area? I have consultations with Dr. David Kim and Dr Most coming up. :)

Incase you were wondering: female with a twisted septum which has sort of caused my nose to collapse on one side.

I'm also looking into Dr. Scott Chiang who did this girl's primary: 8 months!, Nose Surgery, Nose Job, Rhinoplasty, Pictures, Photos
Which I think is beautiful, and I was wondering if anyone's heard anything on his revision work. Thanks everyone! :)

Hi,

I think Dr. Kim's b and a's look amazing! If I was in your neck of the woods I'd see him in a heartbeat!

Kelly I've talked to 4 of Kim's patients and they were happy with their results. Pleeeease keep us updated on ur consult with him, hes on my short list

That's so weird how 3 weeks post op she has a bump and then it totally went away...

Her final photos look great!

lawoman + prodigiousflames: Had my consult, Dr. Kim is very nice and professional! I like how he didn't talk himself up. I have a very complex revision, and although he said he wasn't sure he could make it perfect, he said he could get me at worst 50% better, but was aiming for 80-90%. I'm meeting with a couple other doctors in the following week, and Kim's price was a bit steep for me but I'll keep you two updated. He also doesn't include the cost of medications in his quote and did't tlak to me much about any creams or washes they would give me to use (while other doctors did) which bummed me out a bit. How did you like Kim, Prodigious?

Amy: yeah, I noticed that on her before and after. unfortunately i don't think I can consult with Dr. Chiang as I'm not a Kiaser patient. :( But I was wondering if anyone had any info on him, becuase I would consider switching insurance if he was rumored to be any good...

I haven't consulted with him yet but I love his pictures. I spoke to a girl on the phone who needed a drastic revision and she said he did a beautiful job although it took him about 8 hours or so. It seems like he gives luke warm consultations from what people post--what was his price? I hear hes expensive as well and this is pretty unfortunate

Where did you find all these former patients? I would love to speak to someone whose gone with him.
If you PM me I will send you what he quoted me, but I don't feel comfortable posting it one here as I'm not sure if its a price most of his patients would be quoted and I don't want to discourage people from consulting with him. :)
He has quoted me a higher price than every other doctor thus far though, and I've met with 3/4 others...

Anyone heard anything about Dr. Mosser either? I'm curious about this doc.

kelly23 07-12-2010 02:35 PM

No suggestions? Anyone? :(

A bit pinched, yeah. I suppose you're right. :uh oh:
