Dr. Yeh is a very nice person, and may be skilled at other surgeries, but my rhinoplasty experience with him left me disappointed and frustrated. It was intended to be a simple, straight forward procedure. I wanted to lower and straighten the bridge, as well as narrow the supra tip while leaving the rest untouched, so it would still look natural. What was supposed to be a simple rhinoplasty procedure with minimal work done may now result in multiple surgeries and a smiling deformity that he couldn't fix. Even though I provided him a rendering by another doctor, (which he somehow forgot to look at during surgery) my results showed he still did not grasp the main objective. I (and other surgeons I showed my photos to) could not see a positive difference in the profile. He only shaved off the very top portion of the dorsum where a small bump was, leaving the middle of the bridge virtually identical and therefore still very high and convex. Also, bone that was shaved off was left under the skin to regrow. I have several bony lumps as a result. Other issues that need correcting now include a deep crease above my lips when I smile, raised nostrils, and the bridge is slightly curved to one side. At first, he said he thought my nose looked improved. He also said he could feel the bony lumps, but could not see them. I found this alarming since after using the kenalog injections they were clearly obvious to me and others. His refusal to acknowledge or remedy the issues for the first 9 months left me feeling abandoned, but when I communicated my frustrations to Janette, she thought this was very uncharacteristic of him, and setup another followup for me. This time I was relieved that he acknowledged the issues, articulating to me that he’d done his best, but that he couldn’t find a solution to the smiling deformity. I believe his apology was sincere. He also kindly provided me with notes on what was done and 1/2 his surgeon’s fee to help address the issues with another surgeon. Unfortunately, this may only cover a small portion of the surgerie(s) that are now needed to fix the issues, and finding a surgeon who can address all issues at once has been a huge challenge.
