Dr. Oakley Smith's Ratings
It's now a year since my nose job and I love it! I went with Dr Smith because my best friend had a great looking nose by him. The recovery wasn't fun but I didn't have much swelling or bruising. My breathing got better even though it was fine before! Dr Smith was great! He likes his job and sure is good at it. I'm glad I chose him.
It has been just shy of a year since I had my rhinoplasty last fall with Dr. Oakley Smith. Hands down, very happy and satisfied with the results - trust me, you do not want to go anywhere else. I'll tell you some reasons why.
A year ago, I came to visit Dr. Smith after having had 2 other consultations elsewhere in Toronto. One of these consultations was in a house-based place with a loud parrot and large fish tank - sure I paid $100 for the consultation and they offered $1000 discount since they knew I was shopping around - but I was not swayed. The second place was very posh in a fraternity neighborhood (maybe you know what I'm talking about) - and I didn't like how they tried to convince me that I should also be getting my chin done - as I happen to love my chin I said screw them.
My nose - well, I had the whole bulbous tip thing going on and it just did not look feminine. That was my number one concern. The greatest part about seeing Dr Smith was that after attempting to tell him that I didn't like this about my nose, he further discussed the problem areas of my nose to the point where he gained my trust completely before the appointment was even over. He didn't try and ask me what kinds of celebrity noses I liked, he is all about making realistic improvements that will be best for your face. This is the kind of doctor you want - someone who sees the bigger picture, offers an achievable goal and stops you from comparing yourself to the displays of perfection in the media. The level of expertise, accreditation and concentration on rhinoplasty are all valid and important factors to check off - but more importantly you'll find that by going through all these online forums time and time again - people only have positive things to say and you would be one of them too.
ps - Love the new office.
Before the surgery my nose was large, pronounced, slightly down turned, and bulged out over the bridge. I didn't like the way I looked. I didn't look like the person I felt I was. With some hesitation and nervousness I decided to pursue rhinoplasty. My biggest hesitation was the worry of a poor outcome, having come across a lot of horror stories when looking at surgeons online. In order to minimize risk as much as possible, I sought an experienced surgeon with a proven record. After considerable research, Dr Oakley Smith stood out the most. At the consultation I immediately got a good vibe from him. His modest and calm demeanour made me feel comfortable. He probed for what I wanted out of the surgery and listened attentively. He was clear, honest, and made sure to answer all my questions. He proposed a series of modifications by accurately drawing them out on paper and explaining their respective impacts. It was clear that not only did he possess an incredible amount of expertise and knowledge in surgery, but I could also sense an artistic and design-oriented mind at work. From researching and meeting with all the other surgeons, I can say Dr Smith possesses a truly rare combination of exceptional surgical and design skills which has rightfully earned him a notable presence in his field.
The procedure went by fast and before I knew it I was on my way to recovery. The recovery was surprisingly painless. A common complaint I've read regarding some other surgeons is that patients sometimes feel abandoned after they've paid and the procedure is complete. With Dr Smith you can tell he truly cares for his patients. I met with him a week after the surgery where he reassured me and helped guide me toward a smooth recovery. There were ample follow ups in the weeks that came and he was always available through email or the reception for any important concerns. It's clear that he's in it for more than just money; he's invested in the positive outcome of the surgery and enriching the lives of his patients.
The change to my nose was substantial. The size was considerably reduced down to an average size which fits my face much, much better. My profile has been drastically changed with the bump along the bridge gone (which has even improved my vision a bit). My expectations were far exceeded and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!
The surgery has been such a positive transformation in my life that I can't imagine not having done it. I finally look the way I feel. I hadn't payed as much attention to my appearance prior to the surgery as it felt somewhat fruitless. I was always aware of my appearance in the back of my mind and it was a detriment to my self-worth.
Following the surgery I was amazing how quickly the new nose became a part of me. I feel so much more confident, value myself more, and am motivated to invest in myself to further that sense of value. I feel it has enabled a new segment in my life and was a necessary change. I owe it all to Dr Smith.
Having gone through the process, my advice is: don't short change yourself and take any unnecessary risks with an inexperienced or careless surgeon. You might save some money, but there's a real risk of ending up a negative review on a surgeon's profile page. Skill and experience can set surgeons worlds apart. Keep in mind that you're making an investment in yourself - be sure to thoroughly research your candidates, review their record, and go with an experienced surgeon. In doing so, I could not recommend Dr Oakley Smith enough. Be sure to see him, you'll be glad you did!
Had a consultation with Dr. Smith. Felt very comfortable at the appointment, he did not rush and was open to all questions. Secretary was also nice. Combined with his office (located in a house) it all had the effect of making me feel a lot less nervous about surgery.
I made the decision in having rhinoplasty done with Dr. Oakley Smith. From the moment I met Dr. Smith, I knew after my consultation with him that I was making the right decision in choosing him as my surgeon. Dr. Smith made me feel comfortable, he took my concerns into consideration, he was honest, patient, kind, I never felt rushed, he answered every single one of my questions. The results that came after surgery made me realize how truly talented and passionate Dr.Smith is in his profession. I couldn't ask for a better surgeon. Its true what others have said about Dr. Smith that his results are natural and that's what I love. The fact that I'm still me but with a nose that better compliments me but also with a nose that allows me to breathe !00% better. You truly will not be disappointed if you choose Dr. Smith as your surgeon. By the way, his secretary Beena is the sweetest. She is extremely polite and is so welcoming. Thank-you Dr. Smith:)
Dr. Smith has these high ratings and excellent reviews for a reason. I am a recent patient of his and just got my rhinoplasty done on May 16, 2014. Before choosing a surgeon I was researching rhinoplasty and surgeons in the area well over 5 years before deciding to go through with it and who my surgeon was going to be. Dr. Smith was my choice from the start as I knew he really cared for me as a patient, understood my needs and wants and actually took the time to listen to me and answer all and any questions I had. He removed my bump, rotated my tip up slightly, fixed my breathing, brought in the projection of my nose and narrowed my bridge and I am now 1 month post op and could not be happier. Everyone says how natural and perfect it is for my face and I could not agree more! You definitely will not be disappointed in choosing this surgeon. He takes his time and cares for each one of his patients individually. Great guy.
