I had a primary and a revison by the illustrious Dr. Gunter- I had to have third operation after. Went to Dr. Tourimi for a consultion - he was shocked by Gunters work. Ended up going to Dr. Deneberg who was able to fix it. Went back to Gunter after one year(the revision) - he spent 5 minutes with me - dismissed me and said "he made me beautiful and no one could have done better - Hence do not doubt what you hear or see.

First & foremost, this is surgery seriously gone wrong and no one should have to go through this kind of suffering.

However, for any potential rhinoplasty candidates (like me) who are freaked out about the possibility of similar results for themselves - research the story.

There are transcripts from the Dr. Phil show on the Dr. Phil website (http://www.drphil.com/shows/show/1104). It looks the show aired on July 8, 2008 and Mike looks much better now. He does have a scar along his forehead but the nose has healed up well & is by no means black, rotting or falling off.

Dr. Gunter who performed the surgery does have a public response about the case - so it is legit & did actually happen. Some serious complications occurred which he admits (revver.com/video/513550/dr-gunter-responds-to-allegations-of-improper-patient-care/).

Michael looks like he had 2 previous nose surgeries to repair damage incurred in a fight when his nose was broken with a steel pipe. This 3rd surgery is the one that ended so badly.

Dr. Gunter says in his public response that if he could have done anything differently he probably would not have accepted the case. For everyone involved, it looks like that would have been the best choice.

It is true, I looked up the doctor and found a link. I read this story and I hope he has recovered by now poor guy.

Mike I commend you for being brave enough to post your pics. Anyone who thinks this guy is lying then your a f**ing stupid. He is putting his face on the internet for people to see what can go wrong so people like you can be ware!! And you think it's a fake just to freak you out? Puuuuhleeeease why would the guy waste his time??
Thanks for posting Mike, I hope you managed to correct the problem with no further complications.

This picture is totally true, this gentleman was on the Dr. Phil show, so no gimmick, but bb7880 and nacicelik are right in their statements. It is unfortunate and scary for all of us that are looking forward to great results. I myself still want to take the risk and being from dallas was looking into going with the best and that would be Dr. G, but after seeing that, I'm on my quest to find another. My heart goes out to you Mr. Funk and thank you for posting. Good luck to you I wish you the very best in your recovery.

There are complications in all types of operations and the aesthetic operations are not excluded. This is a very unfortunate situation but sometimes it happens. I know Dr. Gunter as a very well-known plastic surgeon and he teaches the nose operations to plastic surgeons world wide. And I am sure that if there is a plastic surgeon in the world who can fix everything back again, he is Dr. Gunter
My best wishes to this very unlucky patient

ok , what was your docs excuse to why this happened? have you taken any legal action? this is not right! i mean is your doc protected against you taking any action? did he make you sign a waiver or something pre-op? how and why did this happen? what are u gonna do, i feel for u man and i hope your nose/face can get back to normal. you will prob need revision done. which should be covered.

also if this really happened to you . why did u go to the same doctor and let him to put the piece of skin attached to you nose and forehead? why you have stiches in your forhead for?
it was only the tip that came out rotten. was in it?

i don't trust this pic. it looks fake to me. i think he's trying to scare people who wants to do rhinoplasty as im one of them. if this pic is true, then how come his other part of face looks normal and he is not swollen at all. i think in that kind of case he should able to get some swollen under his eyes.

It is also important to remember that any number of things can cause complications and poor wound healing such as smoking, obesity, infection and medications, to name very few. I think what happened from the story these pictures tell is very tragic, but it happens. I would however point out(in fairness) that the pictures only tell one side of the story. Even if a surgeon does everything right and the patient does everything right there is still a chance, albeit small, that this sort of thing can happen. Some people think that because the word COSMETIC is placed in front of surgery that it's not real and very possibly dangerous stuff. I wonder who did the forehead skin-flap?

What happend?
slimshaudyFrom: slimshaudy | 2007-10-14 00:21:55

this is CRAZY. and ILLEGAL. SUE! FIND YOURSELF A GOOD LAWYER AND SUE! BRING THESE PICTURES TO SHOW AS EVIDENCE EVEN THOUGH YOUR FACE NOW IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE. I agree that you need to go to a hospital and a different plastic surgeon.. a CORRECTIVE plastic surgeon.

I am terribly sorry for what this doc has done to you. Do you mind me asking if you're a smoker?
VariousFrom: Various | 2007-09-14 14:51:15

wtf? you need to go to a hospital somewhere else or something so your face wont get infected and rot offf! did you go back to the same doctor to get that peice of forhead put on your nose? if you did that was dumb cuz that's prolly not supposed to happen and it looks fucked up....you should go to a doctor who knows what he's doing and he'll prolly be in shock over whats happend to you because i bet there have been very few cases like this....you could sue big time!!! and prolly get the doctor who did this to you arrested....please go somewhere else out of your town to a different doctor!!!
