Default Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants

I have been wanting to have a nose job for years now, and I have finally made the decision to do so. The only problem is finding a surgeon....I have heard some great things about Dr. Grigoryants in Glendale, California. Has anyone else heard of him???

From what I can tell, Dr. Jay Calvert and Dr. David Kim also seem to be pretty good.

I'm in Arizona and I did some research, but i couldn't find anyone who seemed "top notch" so I'm looking in California. I honestly cant afford 15k surgeons, but I would still like to know who the best ones are in California (that specialize in rhinoplasty). Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

grigoryants has generally positive reviews but i have heard a couple negatives as well. for instance, there is one person on the mmh forum who says she's had poor cosmetic and functional results. but the first person accounts for him are largely glowing. it's difficult to make that call because most of them are rather 'recent' surgeries and i'd be curious to know how those who had surgery years ago with him are faring. i can't say i've seen any grigs' patients looking for revision yet, aside from the one mmh case. i consulted with him about a revision and personally, i did like him- seemed honest and bs-free- but he was conservative in not wanting to do certain things in my case. i believe with a primary, that wouldn't be so much an issue.

dr. david w kim in sf? i also saw him about revision and he too was extremely conservative and cautious but seemed down to earth and decent. not that that has any bearing on result. you might have read about his results tending toward the conservative. he trained under toriumi which to me isn't a positive thing but it'd be unfair to judge based on that. i don't know how much research you've done so i'm just spouting random info. robyne00 on here is very knowledgeable and would probably be able to give much more relevant information and perhaps recs.

there are many names that get tossed around frequently but i went to one of those doctors (who was a hot topic at the time) and didn't have a great result so it's nice to use that as a highlighter but i'd still be careful.

if you haven't searched grigoryants and kim on mmh, i would definitely suggest doing so if you are considering consulting with them. best luck.

If you're in Arizona,maybe check out Dr menick ,hes supposed to be amazing at rhinoplasties.Although I think most of his practice is revision surgery,I have seen a stunning primary result by him on mmh.
