Dr. Rival did my open septorhinoplasty last week and I got the cast removed earlier today. I'm very satisfied with the results so far, even though it's only been 7 days after the surgery. I chose Dr. Rival to feminize my nose as it was quite wide and the tip was large. The recovery so far has been virtually painless and I had almost no bruising after the surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Rival for those looking to have rhinoplasty, I'm very happy that I chose him as my surgeon! :)

I had a closed rinoplasty done last Wednesday and I couldn't be happier with the results even though it hasn't even been a week!!! I'm 23 year old and having this done was the best decision I have ever made. I knew right from the consultation with Dr. Rival that he was going to be the doctor of choice that I didn't feel the need to see anyone else.!! He was kind and very knowledgable, I had a hump romoved, tip shortened and reshape to remove a droppy overprojected tip! I just had my cast taken off yesterday and the outcome is beyond what I could have ever imagined! I finally feel my nose is not a insecurity and I have gotten all confidence back due to Dr. rivals amazing expertise! The surgery its self went very well all nurses made me feel very comfortable! I had minimal swelling and brusing Dr. Rival really takes care of his patients and I can't express enough how happy I am with choosing him..it's only been 6 days!!! I can't wait to see the changes over the next few months! If your looking to have your nose done Dr. Rival is the doctor to trust, he is honest and clear what is achievable and really takes into account your issues and concerns!!

I had a REVISION rhinoplasty done by Dr. Rival over a year ago. I had 2 previous rhinoplasty's botched by another Ontario plastic surgeon. My nose had collapsed at the bottom - following the two previous surgeries. I researched the web and felt Dr. Rival was the right choice for me. As scar tissue forms following rhinoplasty - I was tempered and realistic in my expectations. Dr. Rival surpassed all my expectations. He did an amazing job of repairing the issue and shaping my nose. I am very happy with the final result. Being ethnic - I wanted something that suited my face - the best possible nose for MY face - and that's exactly what I got. I can't thank him enough. He's caring, professional and very skilled.

I had a close rhinoplasty with Dr Rival in October, it's been about a month and a half since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm still swollen which is normal but even with the swelling I love how my nose looks. Dr Rival is an amazing Doctor

My experience with Dr. Rival went far beyond my expectations. He ensured to be very realistic in what could be accomplished, and he did exactly as he promised! I had a Septorhinoplasty. My nose looks amazing and my breathing has never been better! His staff was just as fantastic. Very helpful - going out of there way to make sure I understood all the administrative points, as well with payment. I highly recommend him - couldn't be more pleased!

Dr Rival is the best of the best! I can't tell you how glad I am to have chosen him for my surgery. I had a closed rhinoplasty, chin implant and liposuction to remove excess fat from my chin. It has been 3 weeks since the procedure and the results are better then I hoped! If you're looking for cosmetic work on your face you absolutely must see Dr. Rival!!

Dr. Rival is truly amazing! I came to him from a different country, and he was very, very helpful and accommodating. I'm a month and slightly over a week post op and I can already see big changes in my nose, while still remaining extremely natural, which I love! I had a closed rhinoplasty, with tip reduction (even though I have slightly thick skin I still see major changes) and truly I couldn't be happier and cannot wait for the results to keep getting better! I would recommend him a 100 percent. He is also always there for questions about aftercare and is prompt with his responses when needed, etc. I don't feel worried about being far away during my recovery because he has made it very easy for me to reach him with my enquiries. I am quite pleased that I did my research and chose him!

I am extremely impressed with Dr. Rival. He did an amazing job! My nose looks natural and well-proportioned to my face. He had a great understanding of what was best suited to my facial structure and was sensitive to what I wanted achieve. He was realistic with expectations and answered all of my questions without hesitation. I had my nose thinned, hump removed and tip shortened through a Closed Rhinoplasty with absolutely no scarring. Another doctor encouraged and Open Rhinoplasty even though I made it clear that is not what I wanted. Dr. Rival’s expertise was apparent from the initial consultation and I am so pleased I waited to meet with him as he exceeded my expectations!!

I could not be happier with my entire experience with Dr.Rival. He carefully and realistically explained the Rhinoplasty results that he could give me, listened to and addressed all of my concerns, and made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease about the whole process. The staff and his team were also extremely professional, kind and welcoming; and helped the entire procedure go very smoothly. I was fully aware of exactly what to expect on the day of the surgery, and when I went home that day I experienced very minimal pain and bleeding. During the week following the surgery I did experience a very normal about of swelling and minor bleeding, but I felt almost no pain whatsoever. After a week when I got my cast off, I couldn't believe how perfect the results were! My old nose had a large bump, drooped at the tip and looked unproportionately large for my face. My nose is now perfectly straight, the ridge is thinner and the tip is lifted and shaped. You can see a MAJOR difference, however it suits my face and I still feel like myself, only an improved version. I was surprised that it only took me a week after the surgery to be able to to go out and resume my regular life, I thought it would take much longer but I had no bruising around my eyes and looked completely normal. It has now been a year since my surgery, and my nose has only gotten better with time. Although I did see the initial results right after the surgery, it still took a couple of months for the swelling (especially around the tip) to go down entirely, but ever since it did I can honestly say my nose is perfect, and exceeds the expectations of what I wanted. It looks even better then the digital photo alteration that he originally showed me, and it has changed my life and my confidence forever. My nose was always my biggest insecurity, and I am so thankful that I chose Dr. Rival because he truly knows what he is doing. If you are considering Rhinoplasty, I wouldn't go to anyone else!
