Question Rhinoplasty LA: Surgeon Reviews

I am looking to have rhinoplasty done in the LA area. I'm a 30yo Caucasian male, my nose was broken in a car accident 9 years ago and was poorly reset. Not sure if that classifies as primary or revision. As a result I have a wide and bumped bridge, and my tip is a little bulbous. I have posted pics of my current and desired result, hoping to hear from anyone who has had good exp with a similar procedure.

comments/additions/subtractions on my surgeon shortlist would be great. Thanks.


In order of preference:

Dr. Grigoryants
Solimen and Litner
Dr David Kim
Kanodia ($$$)
Rollin Daniel
Jay Calvert
Andre Aboolian
Armen vartany

To my knowledge, Rollin Daniel, which is who I am considering unfortunately no longer operates on male patients. Also for S and L, there has been a lot of unfavorable info posted about them on the other forums, check it out, allegedly they basically use soooooo much blatant advertising and marketing that one has to wonder if surgeons with good skills and abilities really need to use borderline shady practices to make themselves look good.

Yeah I have heard s&l advertising is a bit extreme, their before and afters look pretty good though and I have not seen any unhappy reviewers as yet. Oh yeah I just read on another forum too that Rollin is no longer doing males..

I'm really leaning towards Frankel due to the fact he only really does rhinoplasty or revisions, and has a lot of positive feedback and very good before and afters.

Grigoryants also sounds very good, but all of his before an afters seem to be of ethnic noses that have had humps reduced. Not broken noses or Caucasian like mine

Dr Kim looks pretty good also, and is apparently conservative which I like. However I've heard he can be short and not very communicative.

Stephen Pincus is supposed to be good, but does a lot of different procedures and only has a handful of before and afters.

Anyone else have an opinion?

I need a highly skilled surgeon who is experienced with broken bone (trauma)/poorly fixed noses and Caucasian males.

Thanks

I like Soleman & Litner for the reasons that they have nice aesthetics, are reasonably priced, and I heard that if the surgery goes wrong they can revise without additional cost so this is like a reasurance for me. And I do nt think that they are heavily promoted although I cannot say that they do not use protions at all.

I also like Frankel aesthetics.

Kanodia is also good but not cheap, as you said.

I m interested about Andre Aboolian, Armen vartany.
