From as long as a I can remember my deepest insecurity came from the shape of my nose. Always worried about how it looked from which angle my face turned, or the way the light touched it. With age this then only helped the introvert side of my personality flourish. Choosing to stay at home when my friends went out, or being very selective of who I spent my time with knowing they wouldn’t judge my nose the way I did. After coming of age and Dr.Frankel coming into my life I knew it was the right time to change the dark path that insecurity had taken me down. Dr. Frankel was the kindest, most generous and patient man I’ve met. He took the time with me to go over the 3D reconstructions of my faces future. We became a team of 2 in cultivating the best plan to resemble the way I feel on the inside, be shown on the outside. The nose we chose, the nose that I now have, is the face I’d always seen and wanted when I looked in the mirror. For that I’m eternally grateful. The beautiful irony is that as your nose starts to shrink after surgery, you get to grow. Grow into your honest and genuine beauty from the way you felt on the inside. By getting the nose job I was able to live in the moment and not just want to be in the moment, taking away the subconscious thought of always having to decide whether my nose looked okay from one angle to the next. It grew my confidence, self-esteem, and just a better quality of life not having that continuous thought in the back of my head. Dr.Frankel has mastered the art of rhinoplasty and getting to work with him has now opened up paths that I never knew existed. From this day, till the end of my days, I may never have enough "thank you’s" to express how extraordinary I now feel, on the inside and out, but hopefully, these words can inspire others to work with him and feel as good as I do.
I am in complete awe of Dr. Andrew Frankel's surgical expertise, remarkable technique and aesthetic judgment. Six months I ago, I travelled across the country to have Dr. Frankel perform a highly complex revision rhinoplasty with rib grafting. For years, I had consulted with top surgeons in NYC and other major cities and never felt comfortable with their vision or direction. Simply put, I didn't trust them to fix my problem. I had resigned myself to living with a horribly misshaped and unnatural looking nose (the result of two prior surgeries gone wrong) until I met Dr. Frankel. In those first few moments of our consultation, I had finally found what I had been looking for all those years...the right surgeon! I was immediately comfortable with Dr. Frankel's realistic assessment of my situation, his gentle, but confident demeanor, and his proposed plan for my revision surgery. Weeks later, Dr. Frankel brilliantly performed my surgery exactly as planned and delivered results beyond my expectations!
Today, when I look in the mirror, I see a softer, more improved version of myself staring back. For the first time in my life, I now have a beautiful nose. I am prettier than I have ever been at age 43, can breathe with ease and no longer stare at my nose and cringe.
I feel tremendously fortunate that I found Dr. Frankel and I am forever grateful and thankful for his extremely talented hands.
There is nobody like Dr. Frankel. I had major internal damage to my nasal septum as a child. The result of numerous botched surgeries, with consultations with many of the nations top surgeons - many whom would not touch my nose. I ended up with the best three surgeons in Beverly Hills as consults. One who would not do surgery. I chose Dr. Frankel, and could not be more pleased. My success rate was warned it would be about 65% by all physicians and Dr. Frankel came out with 100% internal reconstruction after an 8 hour surgery. Dr. Frankel also helped to diagnose me with a life threatening disease that nobody diagnosed through 40-years of my life. I cannot say enough good-things about this Dr. You are in World-Class hands with this man.
Best wishes to you and Dr. Frankel, and the continuation of your world-class service. I attribute a major part of my confidence and success today-- both in my business and my personal life-- to the wonderful skill and care I received several years ago from Dr. Frankel and the Lasky team.
My mom actually commented last night that my skin looks so good... so you got the ultimate compliment!
This week I am celebrating my 46th birthday. Thanks to you I truly feel like celebrating. Not only do I look better, but I actually feel younger as well. What an inspiring gift to be able to give. When I blow out the candles on my cake, I will be thanking you for the wish that you made come true.
I want to say thank you for a job very well done! I’m so happy with how my surgery turned out. I feel younger and beautiful. What a wonderful gift you have - to make people feel better about themselves. Merci
I want to share my sincerest appreciation for your attention to detail and talent as a plastic surgeon. Your advice to remove the cheek implants and perform a mid-face lift produced results far beyond what I had expected. I love to smile and feel my cheeks plump up; it actually makes me feel happier and, of course, I am hugely pleased with the appearance. I feel I look softer and more youthful.
Thank you for the beautiful work you did on me. The good you do for people is beyond description. You are truly an amazing surgeon. You are so gifted and talented, and definitely chose the right profession.
Thank you so much for your kindness and advice. Your expertise meant so much to me in one of the most difficult decisions of my life.
