Good surgeon, nice offices, good staff. He spent quite a bit of time answering all my questions and made me feel very comfortable with him as the surgeon. I was getting married in June 04 so I had 6 months to get in shape for my photos. My eyes were more almond shaped before so I wasn't thrilled with the results until almost 3 years later. The nose has never been great. I have thick skin which the doctor told me about AFTER the surgery. How he didn't know this before is beyond me, so the closed surgery didn't get the results. I had a high profile nose with a bump and wanted it to look for feminine and less pronounced. It's ok now but not as flattering as I had hoped. Revisions are expensive and the three docs I went to after said, "leave it alone"
All in all, Dishell is good. He knows his stuff and has been around a while. He didn't handle it well when I told him I didn't like the nose. I would recommend him but be aware-the face after surgery changes for years-not months. It finally settled in around year 3.
