I broke my nose in a car accident about three years ago. The break made my nose crooked and accentuated a bump on the bridge of my nose. According to my mom, I looked like, “a prize fighter.” I knew from the minute I broke my nose that I wanted plastic surgery to get it fixed. But, it took me two years from the day of the accident to finally have the surgery because I was so scared of what my nose could look like after surgery – we’ve all seen those bad nose jobs!
For a long time I searched for the right doctor. I met with four other surgeons before I saw Dr. Tobias. He was recommended to me by two friends who were his patients. He did a rhinoplasty for one, and revision surgery for another.
My first appointment with Dr. Tobias was in his New York office. From the minute I walked in the door, I felt comfortable. His staff was friendly and helpful and continues to be even after my surgery. But, it was my conversation with Dr. Tobias during my first appointment that made me know he was the surgeon for me. Other surgeons I met with began our appointments by eagerly telling me what they could do to my nose and how they could change my appearance. It made me feel like a piece of meat with a caged, drooling tiger waiting to get his paws on me. But, with Dr. Tobias it was different.
He wanted to hear from me. He listened carefully, he was patient and attentive. Once I was finished talking, Dr. Tobias responded. Thought he never made any promises, he was clear that he would not change my appearance. He would only give me a nose that fit my face. He said it would be “my nose,” but straighter and smoothed out. He was as opposed to “ski slope” noses as I was. It was such a relief to hear.
I visited Dr. Tobias two or three more times before the surgery, and each time he asked me to describe my issues with my nose. He had me do the same thing as I was waiting to go into surgery. It was so comforting knowing how much he cared about what I wanted for my nose and for my appearance.
The hospital experience was just as comforting. While any surgery is nerve-wracking, the staff at Englewood Hospital worked hard to make sure I was at ease from the minute I walked in the door to the time I left. They were attentive before and after surgery and let me spend extra time in the recovery room sleeping off the anesthesia.
Not only was I thrilled with the entire experience, but I am even more thrilled with the results! Dr. Tobias gave me a nose that looks like my nose, but better! My friends keep telling me I look great, but they can’t figure out what’s changed. People barely realize I’ve had my nose done. It’s fantastic! It’s exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with the results Dr. Tobias gave me. Thank you, Dr. Tobias!
