I had a nose job about 5 years ago, performed by Dr. Mameniskis. I will say that he is an extremely nice person and a good surgeon. The staff was warm and accomodating, and I had no trouble getting any appointments (consultation, pre-op, etc.)
But I have to say this: I was not pleased with the results of the rhinoplasty. I was born with a very ethnic nose (I'm half Italian), and I felt that my nose was too wide and protruded too much for my face. After my nose healed and the swelling went down, it appeared that half of my nose was still puffy or swollen. The doctor kept telling me that he would give me steroid injections to break down the scar tissue, which he did give me, but they never helped. Needless to say, I was quite annoyed, especially after having spent $5,000.00.
So I decided to have a revision done to my nose. The results are now better than before, but still not perfect. I really thought the second time around the doctor would have gotten the job right.
