I like these doctors. I had an online consult with litner and I like his approach. They are reasonably priced. I am looking for a revision to rebuild my nose and perhaps be able to breathe well after a poor surgery with Nassif. I hope that they can help me out. I felt comfortable with Litner because he pointed out my concerns without me refering to my concerns.

I would like to ask whether they carve cartilage or insert something in it for building noses, so that cartilage warps nicely?

That is exactly what they did in my consultation and that is why I wanted to go with them. They pointed out my concerns even before I mentioned them! I thought that was so amazing and made me feel so at ease. They knew exactly what I wanted and they got me exactly there. I had a post op apt today and it went great! They are such a good team! Really happy.

wow i am so sorry to hear that.. So many people get messed up when they get nose jobs. I feel so bad for everyone. I hope everything goes ok and you can get it fixed...

Today I had a post op 1 month after surgery and I have to say again and again I love these guys, They got me in right away and spent a lot of time with me. I am so grateful to have found them. They noticed in my left nostril my skin was touching from the healing process and they fixed me right up. They numbed me and separated the skin and put in a gel dissolvable thing. I talked to my mom tonight about it and she said most doctors probably would have charged for that, but they did it no problem and no pain! They told me in 4 days everything will be good and I will be able to breathe even better now. They are so good. I hear from a lot of people on here that their bad doctors dont even give their patients the time of day after the surgery is done and they get the money in their pockets. I think that is horrible. My doctors want to check on me again in 2 weeks. They want to have me come in all the time to check on my progress. I love that they are both ENT doctors too , that was a very comforting feeling knowing that. I would always make sure the doctors are ENT certified. My mom wrote the doctors today wondering what happened and they responded right away with the exact details. They are seriously angels in my book.

reg: what I said above. The doctor said because I had a septoplasty and turbinate reduction the lining inside the nose has been roughened and the lining is healing and the rough edges can rarely want to heal together. So they numbed me up and made a small incision I mean SMALL and it was no big deal. I just love how they are on it. They both look at you and make sure everything is going perfectly. They keep in contact with all of their patients over the years and make appointments with them to check on progress. I feel like if I went to any other doctor they wouldn't even bother to look inside my nose and make sure everything is going good. They did not charge me at all for this small procedure today. It took no time at all to do it. I even talked with them about my up coming trip I am taking

They seem to be good. i prefere much more Litner than Soleman. Soleman is friends on facebook with my surgeon who left me in a bad situation. But for what I hear and from my experience they are v good and quite honest. that is what counts most in surgeons-honesty, and ability to practice well plus and eye for good aesthetics. I m happy for you that you found these two.

I had Septo/Turbinate Reduction and have never heard of having issues with healing / needing incisions....

Actually its a common thing. I looked it up and it was so minor its no big deal. I am doing amazing now and can breathe perfectly. When you get stuff done like that it makes it rough on the inside and sometimes only SOMETIMES it may stick together. They fixed it within seconds and its better. My mother was confused at first and wrote the doctors and they wrote back very fast with all the details. We also researched online and it is a common normal thing to happen.

. The adhesion we noticed today was tiny, literally about 1mm in size on the left side. This happens on occasion when the lining inside the nose has been roughened after a septoplasty and turbinate reduction. As the lining is healing, the rough edges can rarely want to heal together. This required a simple lysis or separation of the edges under local anesthesia and the problem should be entirely solved. We placed a small piece of dissolvable gelfoam to maintain that separation for a few days while the edges heal. There is no other care required. There really should be no risk of infection or other concern. And, we have never seen one come back.

That is what my doctors said. SO it was really no big deal and they saw it right away and fixed me up! They are so awesome! They did not even charge me like most doctors probably would have. I feel great now! Everything is healing perfectly and this was no biggie. I am glad they want to keep seeing me so much even way after my surgery. They have my money and everythig is done but they still want to see me a lot to keep checking on my progress. LOVE THESE GUYS! They are so on it. My mom was worried and wrote them about this and they wrote back ASAP with a very detailed description on what they did. They are so awesome. I cannot believe how well I am breathing now FINALLY for the first time in my life i can freaking breathe !!!!! I am so grateful. I probably would have never had this done if I couldnt breathe right, that really pushed my decision. I see the doctors again in 2 weeks so they can check on me.

And Kristen everyone is different, everyone heals differently and has different things go on. so you prob healed perfectly
