Dr. Calvert performed my secondary rhinoplasty only 5 weeks ago and I am already thrilled with the results.
My primary rhinoplasty was performed two years ago by a talented and well-respected surgeon who unfortunately did not live up to his reputation in my case. I was left with worsened breathing problems and an unattractive nose that did not suit my face. After this very disappointing experience I was, needless to say, very upset and very apprehensive of pursuing more surgery.
I took my time in considering whether or not to go under the knife again, and in doing so performed extensive online research as to who the best revision rhinoplasty specialists are in the southern CA area (where I live). There are only about five worth considering, so I contacted all of them by email and scheduled initial consultations with three of them, including Dr. Calvert.
I first spoke with Dr. Calvert at length by phone before consulting with him twice in-person where we discussed the complexity and strategy for my potential revision, which included the rib and fascia grafts. I found his honest and direct demeanor very comforting, and appreciated that he was not what I considered to be a stereotypical Beverly Hills doctor. I found Dr. Calvert very approachable, highly intelligent, very thorough, very patient with all of my questions and concerns, and very understanding as to how I was feeling as a dejected and apprehensive patient.
I cannot stress how important it is to find the right fit of personality, strategy and style when selecting a surgeon, and I suggest interviewing several. Dr. Calvert and his staff are absolutely superb from the start, each and every one of them making me feel that my needs are their top priority. They have all exceeded my expectations, the whole experience has exceeded my expectations.
My surgery went extremely well and was more extensive than expected, but the outcome has been a dream come true both medically and cosmetically. Dr. Calvert is a perfectionist, he constantly strives for better outcomes and is always adjusting his techniques to that end. He is the leader in his field and driving the future of rhinoplasty. My experience with him is proof of that - he has changed my life.
I cannot stress how important it is to interview several surgeons as many times as you need to find the right fit, and I also cannot stress how important it is to consider Dr. Calvert in your research. He sets a new standard in plastic surgery and patient care that should not be discounted. He is truly an excellent surgeon and thrives on the happiness of his patients.
Thank you to Dr. Calvert and his staff for one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am ever grateful and proud to recommend him.
