I had primary rhinoplasty in 2007. Since then I have had three revision surgeries in an attempt to correct the first botch job and my nose still isn't right. The first rhinoplasty I had extensive scar tissue around my nostril which caused it to heal incorrectly. Dr. Clark attempted to fix this 3 times, each time ripping out the stitches and then restiching the nostril. One of those times the anesthesia ran out and I had tears streaming down my face. The second revision was to shave down a small bump. He admitted that he shaved too much off and I was left with NO bridge. Also the valves in my nose collapsed and I could NOT breathe. I had to PAY for the third revision surgery!! Now I have a visible bone implant and a slope - WHICH I DID NOT WANT. How can he charge me for HIS mistake??? How is that ethical? Also, I ended up being AWAKE for the revision and begging the nurse for more pain killer - I still have nightmares. I do not recommend at ALL.
