I had a rhinoplasty in 2003 when I was 15 years old. (At the time I didn't realize it, but my mom has serious issues, she was who brought up my nose and talked me into getting the procedure, I never even gave it a second thought or thought it was big or anything was wrong with it until she first said it was kind of big for my face.) My mom scheduled a consult with Dr. Gillian and also the surgery. *Note to parents, do not let your children get plastic surgery, please, until at least after high school.* Well I had a normal looking nose (no humps, not crooked), just larger for my face. We talked about what I wanted (although I really didn't even realize the consequences of surgery, what could happen, I was 15 years old at the time). What I came up with was what looked like (and I'm sorry if I offend anyone here) a black person's nose. Totally collapsed, short and wide, especially by my eyes. Was told at follow-up it's just swollen, give it a year to see the real results, any of my concerns were pretty much answered with the "well just give it a year" line. I ended up dropping out of high school when this happened, because I was made fun of, and developed major depression and anxiety which I am still dealing with every single day. I didn't leave my house for about 4 years after this happened. My nose is the first thing I think about when I wake up and is always on my mind, it's awful, I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Anyway, I really hope this helps anyone out there considering going to Dr. Gillian. Do NOT do it. If you would like any more information please feel free to email or comment. Thank you.

He is unskilled and has many sanctions. He needs a 'medical nanny' to be with him if he is going to do surgery. He is a butcher in my opinion.

The repair work I had to do for his poor excuse as a surgeon cost me 20,000. And still I have problems.
