25/04/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Shah and staff are awesome! They really make you feel at ease and comfortable. I was able to have my in office procedure done and go to work a couple hours later without any bruising or way of noticing that I had anything done. I'm recommending him to my friends and family!  Respond

03/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Anil Shah has been great! His staff is really nice, friendly and professional. Rhinoplasty is a big decision, so I wanted to pick a surgeon I felt confident in. Dr Shah and his team made me feel comfortable. My surgery went well. Recovery has been great. I definitely like my new nose better. It's only been 3 months, so can't wait to see what it looks like past the 1 year mark. I would recommend Dr Shah and his team, with no hesitation whatsoever, for Rhinoplasty. Will be glad to update this as my nose improves.  See Responses

02/01/14 5 5 5 5 After researching various facial plastic surgeons in the Chicagoland area and going through numerous consultations, Dr. Shah was spot on with his suggestions for my rhinoplasty. Not only did he notice my deviated septum (which many other doctors did not), he suggested the point of my rhinoplasty was not to give me the perfect nose, but to draw attention away from my nose. This is exactly what I was looking for. Two and a half weeks post-op, my results are amazing! Everything looks exactly as we discussed, and the recovery was relatively painless, and without packing my nose! His staff is extremely helpful via email, phone and Skype. Overall, I would choose Dr. Shah again and recommend him to anyone looking for a facial plastic surgeon. His prices are extremely reasonable, and I have nothing but great things to say about his staff.  Respond

09/04/13 5 5 5 5 Young. handsome, gentle, skillful facial surgeon. Office 9th floor of the famous WATERTOWER building between Lakeshore Drive and Michigan Avenue with 4 floors of parking. As an operating room nurse I believe anything you can do to make yourself feel good is worth the time and money. Dr Shah is an excellent choice.  Respond

27/03/13 5 4 5 5 I have been going to Dr. Shah for 3 years. I first started with a liquid lift. I have wanted my nose fixed since forever. 5 months ago I decided to take the plunge. I got the works; a face lift, rhinoplasty, chin implant, upper/lower eyes, and fat transfer. I am thrilled with the results. I can breathe out of my nose for the first time and it looks great. My friends tell me I look 20 years younger. My experience with Dr. Shah and his staff has always been a pleasure.  Respond

02/01/13 1 1 3 3 I would NOT recommend going to Dr. Shah for a rhinoplasty. Not only is his staff EXTREMELY disorganized, but his work is not impressive. I had an open rhinoplasty about three weeks ago, and my nose (which was not crooked before) is noticeably crooked to the left side. The tip is no smaller than what we discussed, and he did not make changes to the bridge that we had discussed at my consultation. My nose looks absolutely NOTHING like the computer morphed images that he had shown me. When he removed my cast I was terrified and almost started crying. He just put out his hand, said "you did great" and WALKED OUT OF THE ROOM!!!!!!! Extremely rude and frightening. Do NOT go to Dr. Shah for a rhino!!!! Save yourself the headache and horror!!!!

23/03/12 3 5 2 3 Wanted a finesse rhino for a small bump on bridge and tip deprojection. He left me w/ a septal perforation ( and did not tell me) and a very crooked bridge. Trying to get this fixed now and the perforation is really complicating matters. Felt like he didn't really listen to me about my concerns w/ my newly crooked bridge. Very disappointed.  Respond

29/09/11 5 3 5 5 Dr. Shah is amazing! My nose was pretty convex and protruded out of my face and it was just too long for my petite face. I had an open rhinoplasty 5 weeks ago. I thought i was going to look pretty different because it was such a big change but it looks soooo natural and I love it! I get so many compliments and sometimes I have to remind people I got it done because it's so natural looking!! It was almost painless. Totally recommend him!

27/09/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. shah did my otoplasty earlier this year and the results are fantastic. He said they would look natural, and they look natural. His staff is awesome too, just expect a medium wait time. Definitely returning to him for my revision rhinoplasty, hopefully it turns out just as well! This guy is defintely an artist and his prices are pretty impossible to beat.

07/04/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Shah is a GOD. I had a love/hate relationship with my nose for YEARS. It was bulbous and blobby yet it was also the type of nose that, if changed, could dramatically change the look of my face---think Jennifer Gray. One of the surgeon's that I consulted with agreed with me, that having the procedure was a big gamble with my face. I truly liked my face, I was simply preoccupied with the fact that my nose sometimes took away from my best features which are large eyes and full lips. I researched like CRAZY and came upon Dr. Shah via the web. I noticed that he had published literature with Raj Kanodia, as in THE Dr. Raj sooooooooo.... I called Dr. Raj's office and told them that I would love to come to Dr. Raj, yet his fees were out of my range thus I asked whether they could recommend Dr. Shah based on the fact that they were obviously aquainted. Dr. Raj said that I would be in great hands. I am THRILLED w/ my nose. It didn't change my face, just my nose. I LOVE DR. SHAH!!!!  Respond

15/08/10 5 4 5 5 I just had rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Shah two weeks ago. I had a lot done to my nose and was not expecting to be out and about and looking so good right after surgery. He did a fantastic job and even though the tip is still swollen, I am very happy with the results. Dr. Shah is an awesome doctor and I would highly reccomend him to anyone looking into rhinoplasty.  Respond

28/06/10 5 5 5 5 I saw Doctor Shah for botox. His staff was friendly and very supportive. His office is conveniently located in Water Tower, but with private access. He is very professional and kind. His technique is great - I had absolutely no pain with the injection,and it was very quick. I am amazed with the outcome. All the areas he treated are smooth and totally free of wrinkles. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to preserve and improve the beauty of their skin. Chicago is fortunate to have someone of his skills, experience and expertise.  Respond

14/06/10 5 5 5 5 Did a great job on my nose which was broken from fighting fires. Fixed breathing problems and cosmetic work. Very natural looking, considering I had no idea what cosmetic work I wanted, just told him to make it look better. Highly recommend
