Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   January 14, 2005
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I received a revision rhinoplasty from Dr. Toriumi that left me with one nostril significantly higher than the other, uneven and lumpy white grafts, an unnecessary tip revision that narrowed it to an unnatural degree (beforehand I'd specifically requested that he NOT touch the tip) and chronic pain. There are many other, somewhat smaller issues. Altogether this result, the lack of post-op care, and my pain has effectively turned me from a cheerful woman into an unhappy recluse. While acknowledging the problem, the doctor takes zero responsibility for this result and says there's nothing he can do. Other surgeons have taken one look at this result and say they aren't qualified to fix such a complex grafting problem. The receptionist P. Golden seems bipolar--nice to you one moment, very ugly the second you have "issues." My nose looks lumpy and asymmetrical, I am in pain every day, the doctor and his assistants simply don't care, and I have to live this way forever. AVOID THIS DOCTOR.
