Dr. Romo is a rare gem of a surgeon and a spectacular artist of the face. I have had multiple previous rhinoplasties and a very complicated nose (to the point where my previous surgeon’s last words to me were “there is nothing else I can do for you,” and had given up hope on having a functional, aesthetically pleasing nose until I met Dr. Romo. After meeting with multiple “top revision experts” in NYC, I left each consult either feeling disappointed, frustrated, unsure of the doctor or like my case/needs were valued at about a dime a dozen.
Fast forward to meeting Dr. Romo and now being 1.5 months post-op, and I couldn’t be happier with the level of service, bedside manner, talent and of course results that I have experienced with the Romo team. From my first consult with Dr. Romo (where he actually spends time evaluating patients discussing real expectations and does not rush you out), he is extremely thorough and was the ONLY surgeon I met with who actually asked me to get current necessary scans (rib cartilage was used) and records from my previous surgeries to ensure we wouldn’t run into any unforeseen surprises while in surgery. He was there for me through every question leading up to surgery (and there were MANY), every anxious moment and freak-out, and also called me back in under 5 minutes when I left a voicemail after hours on a post-op question on a Saturday night. Dr. Romo himself is the one I spoke to through all of those moments, unlike other offices where the staff would try to answer the question on behalf of the doctor, or would have the doctor call me back when he became available…2 days later.
All in all, I am of course still recovering but can not recommend Dr. Romo enough. After 15 years of nose issues and extreme insecurity, he has given me the gift of both a beautiful and fully functioning nose, all while being an absolute delight through the process. We ended up doing a chin implant as well per Dr. Romo’s suggestion, and my entire face looks more balanced and more beautiful than ever while still looking natural and like myself. I will start calling him Uncle Romo soon.
