Waste of MONEY $5,000 and time spent healing... Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty, Appearance of nose very little improvement if any and no improvement in breathing through left nostril, right nostril some improvement, makes procedure sound very promising prior to surgery then gives excuses for poor results after procedure. Get second opinion !

I had sagging skin on my upper arms and really needed surgery. My friend where I live is a retired surgical nurse and recommended Dr. Nelson. He was honest and kind and the office staff was great. The surgery was a complete success and I believe no other doctor could have given me more perfect results! My arms look and feel so much better and I am extremely grateful! I plan to have scar revision on another part of my body and would only have Dr. Nelson do the work.
