Patient success story-

Hello everyone, I am Shubhagi chauhan from Mumbai. I am just 22 years old and really concern for my own looks and appearance. I have just done my college from Mithibai College from Vile Parle. My Nose is the only ne thing which I always wanted to change. I was having typical bulbous and large nose. I had heard about Dr. Vaibhav Shah from my one of the friend who also did his Rhinoplasty from Dr. Vaibhav Shah. I met Dr. Vaibhav he suggested me, Tipplasty , Nasal base narrowing and alar reduction. For prominent tip he suggested me to take grafts from ear. I was very much convincing with line of treatment. I underwent rhinoplasty with Dr. Vaibhav Shah. He was meticulous for everything. He is simple and down to earth person. After surgery in first 5 days it was not good feeling. As doctor spoke to me about emotional changes after rhinoplasty I was not much worried but was concern for my nose. After 4 weeks I just was not able to believe this my own nose. It was looking so much prominent and beautiful. Thank you Dr. Shah for such confidence. I met many Docotrs before rhinoplasty in Mumbai; I found most of them are very much expensive and commercial. I suggest DR. Vaibhav Shah for Rhinoplasty. Thank you.
