Terrible results, April 26, 2018, 10:06 am
Reviewer: TerriblerevisionfroMenick

I needed extensive rebuilding on my bridge and tip. Not only he did not rebuild my nose as we discussed he made it even thinner than before. My nose has the same issues as it did before the revision with him- upturned tip, scooped bridge, short and ugly. Now is even worse because he made my nose extremely crooked, asymmetric, and uneven with lots of visible bumps. Each side of the nose looks like it is from a separate face. I had 4 consultations with him and we were both on the same page about the goals. He was very confident that he can reach those goals. Now, after the horrifying outcome of the surgery, he says that he's done the best of his ability. If he was upfront about what he can actually achieve I would have gone with someone else. He made me think that there is no limit to what he can do in terms of rebuilding. My nose does not look "rebuild" although I have a 3-inch scar on my rib cage. I have no idea where all that cartilage from my rib plus what I had in my septum went because it did not go on my nose. Another thing he obviously has no clue about is attractive facial proportions. He left me with a kid-size nose on my big and wide face. He narrowed my bridge and entire nose when it was already too narrow and I shared that concern with him multiple times. He did not want to make my nose wider although I wanted that so I compromised to leave it as it is and rebuild the bridge and tip from that frame. He did the exactly opposite of everything we agreed on before the surgery. He shaved my radix on the sides and way more on one side when I asked for it to be made wider because the first surgery made it thin and deformed. He made it way worse and I doubt that it can be corrected. My eyes don’t look even anymore because of how crooked and asymmetric the radix is. It looks like one eye is put lower and further to the side than compared to the other. The tip is leaning to one side and it has an ugly and upturned look from the front and side (especially one side). I was told by his receptionist that he makes natural looking noses but this cannot look any more botched and fake. I am horrified and still in disbelief that someone who is known to rebuild noses can ruin mine even further than before. If I could add photos here I would see how disgusting my nose is.

Dr. Menick dismissed me and walked away, January 30, 2012, 11:46 am
Reviewer: Suzan110

I have pain daily. Something inside the nose moved about 6 months after surgery. Dr. Menick placed a graft on the bridge of my nose and it shifted and the suture in the tip came loose. I told Dr. Menick this and he told me that my nose was always like that. I am unable to breathe correctly as confirmed by evaluations from Ent physicinas who state they can see the problem but this is now too complicated for them to attempt to fix. Something in the nose presses on the trigeminal nerve and has casued great pain in my eye. This is an absolute nightmare. There is a constant pulling as the graft shifted to the side. The eye has moved backward and there is a tension like something is caught in the eye area.
The side of the nose has collapsed and touches the inside wall. I have had an opthamologist confirm that the eye has sunken in. I struggle as I have lost hope for this to improve. Dr. Mennick words to me as I attempted to adress the concern with the graft in April 2010. "Ta Ta" as he walked out leaving me sitting there nearly in tears. He was arrogant and his ego will not allow him to address the obvious wrong.

Amazing, October 5, 2011, 1:21 pm
Reviewer: menickhopeful

I got a primary rhinoplasty, and there are no words to describe how happy I am with it. This man is AN ARTIST and what he did will change my LIFE.

DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT listen to those who say menick is not good for aesthetic rhinoplasty because he likes to do reconstruction. Those kinds of things come from people who have not HAD rhinoplasty done from him.

Coming from a patient, I can honestly say he is the BEST. I can finally look people in the eyes without being self concious about my nose!! Dr Menick is AMAZING!!

This doctor is amazing!, July 9, 2008, 3:00 pm
Reviewer: jessika89

First of all I would like to say that I am so sick of hearing people say that Dr. Menick may not have an eye for beauty, aesthetics, etc, just because he specializes in reconstructive surgery. The results speak for themselves. I had a primary with Dr. Menick and I could not be happier. I LOVE my nose! He is one of the best and I feel very lucky that I went with him for my surgery. My nose is exactly the way I wanted it and I would recommend him to anyone who is getting a nose job. He is a great guy and a great surgeon and I am absolutely thrilled :)
