Experience with Dr. Jon Turk in New York City?
I've never liked my nose. I have a dorsal hump and I'm looking for a top rhinoplasty doctor in NYC to fix it. Dr. Turk's name was given to me by a friend, who spoke very highly of him and his work. Anyone else have experience with him?
I had a rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Jon Turk 5 years ago. I too had a dorsal hump that I was not fond of. Growing up, my mother had a facelift performed by Dr. Turk and was extremely happy with her results. She always used to rave about how great Dr. Turk's work was to friends and family. I was also born and raised in Long Island, New York, where Dr. Turk has an office in Woodbury, and he is very well-known by the community as being a great facial plastic surgeon, especially for his work on people's noses. Plenty of teenage girls from the area have gone to Dr. Turk to fix their schnozes.
Knowing how much I hated my nose, my mom had me consult with Dr. Turk when I was 17. As soon as I met him, I knew why so many people had said he was one of the best doctors around. He has a great personality and his before and after pictures all looked so natural. He is also highly credentialed, and is dual certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Board. Otolaryngologists are more commonly known as ear, nose and throat doctors, so it was very obvious to me that Dr. Turk had the credentials, results and personality for me to pick him to do my surgery.
Long story short, I had a rhinoplasty and chin implant with Dr. Turk. I did not originally plan on having any facial implants, but Dr. Turk showed me how harmony between the nose and chin was important for an ideal result. The procedure was performed at his Manhattan office on 5th ave in a surgical suite inside his office. The procedure went well and I did not have any issues.
When I first saw my nose after the bandages were removed, I thought it looked a bit too fat. I mentioned this to Dr. Turk and he told me that my nose was still very swollen and it would take up to a year to see my final results. He was absolutely right and a year after my procedure, I absolutely loved my results. My nose and chin both looked so natural. No one and I mean no one, can tell I had anything done.
Since my procedure, I've seen Dr. Turk mentioned as a top doc for facial plastic surgery in New York Magazine, America's Top Doctors, Allure and several other publications. This just affirms what I experienced - the man is very good at what he does. I would highly recommend him for any cosmetic surgery procedures of the face and especially for rhinoplasties. You should definitely go to see him, Sheldon. Good luck!
