Ratings for Dr. Thomas T. Le
Dr. Lee is an amazingly talented and compassionate physician! He went above and beyond to help me! There are some physicians out there just looking to make money but I can tell you first hand from experience, he is not one of them. I first saw Dr. Lee about 4-5 years ago and put off a rhinoplasty surgery because of anxieties and worries I had with the social stigma, risks of having a complex surgery, and not knowing what to expect as the end result. I decided about two years ago to give it another try and had a full open rhinoplasty about a year and a half ago. The result are unbelievable given my prior significantly deviated c-shaped nose. Initially, my breathing was comprised due to collapsing nasal passages. I hated the appearance of my nose from different angles and in different lighting. My damaged nose was the result of many sports related injuries throughout my adolescence. Before the actual surgery, during many one on one consults, Dr. Lee helped to ease my anxieties/worries about the social stigma; his confidence helped my confidence grow and when it was time for the surgery he had my complete trust. I've only had one rhinoplasty so I don't know what other physicians are capable of performing but what I can tell you is that he completely rebuilt my nose to look naturally like what it was supposed to from birth. If you are uncertain about having a rhinoplasty and need one medically or cosmetic reasons, I highly recommend Dr. Lee! He is a very talent surgeon and I can't say enough good about his skills, compassion, and willingness to make the outcome perfect for me! Thank you Dr Lee.

Dr. Le turned my nose into a chronically swollen, hard as a rock, chronically painful, overly large, crooked, aesthetically bad, bone like structure on my face with 4 large rib grafts. I was left with a hole in my chest to go along with it. My results and experience with this doctor are both incredibly poor. I do not recommend Dr. Thomas Le for rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Le!! He is the epitome of what a doctor should be. I had undergone a rhinoplasty in another country 4 years ago with results that were not what I hoped for. My breathing actually worsened and my nose developed a new bulge in the bridge and was overly wide and twisted. I had met with several plastic surgeons in NYC and one in Chicago, all of whom had differing approaches to my case but most of them seemed to treat me glibly and like a dollar sign. Finally, I consulted with Dr. Le in 2015. His consultation was hands down the most comprehensive and meticulous of all the doctors I met, covering all aspects of my nose as well as what I wanted for my nose. I was deadset on having him be my surgeon but was disappointed when he turned me down for surgery, stating that he could not deliver the cosmetic goals I sought because of my thick skin. In hindsight that verdict was the best thing that could have happened to me because I spent the next year and a half getting my life back in order instead of obsessing over my nose. Being that my breathing was still bothering me, I remet with Dr. Le again in 2016 where we set new goals that he and I felt more comfortable with. I am now 6 months out from surgery and cannot be any more pleased! My nose is much more symmetric and streamline plus the breathing is way better, in fact giving me the results I sought from my first surgeon. Throughout my recovery Dr. Le has been very supportive, kind, and professional. I have two more appointments with him over the next 15 months to follow my progress until all of my swelling goes down, and he has offered to keep working on things if I should want if there is more room for improvement but I think I won't need to. Throughout the whole process Dr. Le had been very cautionary about setting reasonable goals and understanding the limits of surgery. At my last visit I got some botox treatments from him with excellent results, so I plan to travel to see him for that as well. Dr. Le is amazing and I recommend him highly!
I had my rhinoplasty with Dr. Le right before Thanksgiving, 2016. Today, I am officially 3 months post surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results! During our initial consultation, Dr. Le took the time to explain every detail of the surgery and the results that I should expect. He answered all my questions with detailed explanations...time was never an issue and he assured me no question was silly. Dr. Le addressed all my pre and post-op questions with great detail. He took his time to take all necessary measurements to make sure I would get the results I was looking for. At the end of the consultation, I felt at ease and confident about my upcoming surgery. I actually couldn't wait to schedule it! The front desk staff was so helpful and accommodating when scheduling my surgery and all the post-op appointments. They even took time to make sure my insurance would cover the medical portion of my surgery. They really went above and beyond to make sure everything was in order prior to my surgery date. Now that much of the swelling has subsided, I can see my new nose! I am so happy with how it has turned out! It looks almost identical to the simulation pictures Dr. Le provided! I know with time and less swelling, it will look even better and I can't wait! I get so many compliments about how natural it looks, which is exactly what I wanted. I was so happy with the results, I am recommending Dr. Le to everyone I meet! My sister is going in for her consultation in less than a month. I highly recommend Dr. Le! You will love your results!
I had a consult with him and he became very impatient when I couldn't decide whether to go ahead with my complex revision after a few e-mails back and forth. He lacks understanding of the psychological difficulties involved in making a decision after several past disappointments. There is a very real failing in this Dr.s ability to empathize with the patient. I could see real complications choosing him for my surgery.
Dr. Thomas T. Le is the most meticulous, brilliant, careful, and confident surgeon I’ve met. I implicitly trust him to deliver successful results with any surgery he completes. Dr. Le expertly revised my “irreparable” rhinoplasty after my original rhinoplasty (2010) and revision rhinoplasty (2012) with the same Johns Hopkins surgeon resulted in a disastrous, uneven, and bulbous nose. After the revision, I met with eight, world-renown surgeons; some of whom told me that they wouldn’t even touch my nose and that very little could be done. I found Dr. Le after my husband did some serious, analytical research online. Meeting Dr. Le was a blessing I will never forget. From the start, he painstakingly discussed every detail with me and took the time, every time, to ensure I understood and was comfortable with our approach. Dr. Le even put me in touch with one of his previous clients so that I could have some “real talk” with someone who has personal experience. He doesn’t take short cuts and use techniques just because they are “new and popular.” He clearly takes the time to understand your story, he maps everything out in a precise and detail-oriented manner, he sticks to the plan, and then he delivers a foundationally strong, aesthetically pretty nose. Dr. Le not only fixed the results of my original and first revision, but the outcomes of his surgery delivered the look I was trying to accomplish when I first sought out rhinoplasty. He also fixed my deviated septum. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. They are better than I could imagine. I sobbed when he first removed my bandages because my expectations were so low, but my nose looked amazing and I felt so lucky to have chosen Dr. Le for my second, and final revision. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a wonderful experience and beautiful results.
Dr. Le performed by revision rhinoplasty in February 2015. I have waited a year to get an idea of my final results and can happily say that I am extremely satisfied. Dr. Le's office staff are wonderful and considerate, and I have never waited more than a few minutes for a pre- or post-operative appointment. Dr. Le is a true master at what he does. When I had my primary rhinoplasty done, I visited 3 surgeons and made my choice based on what in hindsight amounted to savvy marketing. That doctor had not performed nearly enough rhinoplasties to be adept and my results were disastrous. I lived for 4 years with a twisted, asymmetrical nose that did a number on my self-esteem. When I got up the courage to have it revised, it was with trepidation that I began to search for a new surgeon. I met with a couple who were not what I was looking for, and then I met with Dr. Le. He was extremely honest and straightforward, which was refreshing, given the "spin" I was fed with my first surgeon. Dr. Le was very clear about what my surgery would entail and was honest in saying that there was a possibility that he would find my anatomy quite damaged once surgery began. This was the case. My surgery ended up being 2 hours longer than he had anticipated, thanks to the ineptitude of the first surgeon. As with any complex rhinoplasty (mine was almost 8 hours), my recovery was difficult. I was extremely congested and had a very hard time sleeping following that much anesthesia. But Dr. Le called more than once a day to check on me and my misery quickly became a dim memory. I have since had 3 follow-ups with him and he has been thrilled with my results, just as I am. I am so grateful to never have to worry about my nose again and could not be happier that I found Dr. Le and his team. One a sidenote, I would caution readers against believing the few but awful negative commentary here. It is a red flag when someone says that the doctor, their staff, and the entire hospital staff are horrible. Of course, surgeons can certainly create negative outcomes for patients (I am an example, with the first surgeon who operated on me), but please remember that the expectations many patients have are not based on reality; many are non-compliant; and many will complain for the rest of their lives because they simply cannot be happy. This is unfortunate for them, but also for the doctor, whose reputation they seek to tarnish, unfoundedly. Dr. Le is a consummate professional and is an absolute expert in some of the most complex rhinoplasty cases in the world.
I wanted a revision rhinoplasty after another surgeon botched my nose majorly! I was very skeptical and hesitant. I researched for about a year and saw five revision rhinoplasty plastic surgeons. Of all five of them I talked to, Dr. Le was the best! He is very concerned about his patients and is very serious about his work. He is very thorough and is not rushed. He will do whatever needs to be done and is always available. He is extremely knowledgeable. The results are absolutely amazing- perfect. I could not have asked for better care or better results. If only I had known, I would have had this taken care of years ago! His office assistant is also great and very accommodating. I just cant say enough good about Dr. Le, his staff, and his work. He is truly a highly skilled surgeon/artist. I can't recommend him enough!
Dr Le and his team were phenomenal! During each visit, including the initial consultation, I felt very comfortable and never felt rushed. Dr. Le took the time needed to go over my cosmetic desires and answered all of my questions. He told me exactly how the surgery was going to be performed and how I was going to feel after surgery. I felt very comfortable going into surgery, despite being nervous which is normal for any type of surgery. I can assure you that Dr. Le is extremely talented in his craft and wants all of his patients to be happy with their end result. During recovery and after surgery, Dr. Le called to check up on me and see how things were going. He always assured me that if I ever had any questions about anything pre or post-op, to call his office. I healed fantastically and couldn't be happier with the end result. My new nose looks identical to the simulation that he showed me during the consultation. I am very happy with the final result!!! Dr. Le has performed many, many, many nose-reshapings. If you are looking to get any facial cosmetic work done, especially Rhinoplasty, I highly recommend Dr. Le and his excellent staff. The biggest thing I can tell you is that cosmetic surgery can be scary, which is why its very important to trust your doctor. You and your doctor. are a team and everything in the consultation should be discussed so there are no grey areas after surgery. Dr. Le's simulations are fantastic and I really like the fact that Dr. Le takes the time necessary to go over each and every detail about my cosmetic desires. This is vital in terms of understanding what the end result should be. Thank you very much Dr. Le and your amazing staff for providing excellent service as well as correcting my breathing issue (deviated septum). I will be sure to spread the word to my family and friends who may have facial plastic surgery desires as well. I am very glad I did my research and chose Dr. Le as my Rhinoplastic surgeon. Thank you Dr. Le!!!
I travel for 2 hours to see Dr. Thomas Le because he's an excellent doctor, very knowledgeable, very thorough and on time service. I can highly recommend him to anyone who needed to look fresh and much younger of their age. He has an excellent skills over all
