Horrible experience with Manish Shah - I am only giving one star because there's no other option, but if I could, I would give him a 0. I had a revision rhinoplasty done by Shah Manish in April 2019. All I wanted was to breathe better and have a better projection because my nose tip was significantly dropped. I regret so much having had surgery with this doctor as he did a horrible job. Not only did he make my nose worse than it was, but he destroyed my nose. My nose looked ugly. He could not fix my tip; my breathing problem worsens. One year later July 2020, I went back to his office and said he would fix it by doing another office procedure, I trusted him again, and he just made it worse. He left a bump on my nose that was not there.I absolutely hated my nose, had no confidence, had depression for a while, and could no longer pursue my modeling career because of the results. I kept going back to his office to express how I felt about it, and he never listened to me or let me talk. All he said was that my nose was very swollen and that it would get better eventually, which never did. I spent two years dealing with this awful doctor, and nothing changed. He just wasted my time and money. I spent 8k on the first procedure and $300 on the second one. PLEASE AVOID THIS DOCTOR AT ALL COSTS. HE ONLY CARES ABOUT MONEY AND DOESNT HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF WORKING WITH A VARIETY OF NOSES. I HONESTLY DONT KNOW HOW HE HAS HIS BUSINESS RUNNING AND HAS A DEGREE OF IT. HIS WORK IS HORRENDOUS. I WISH HE COULD HAVE BEEN HONEST WITH ME INSTEAD OF DESTROYING MY NOSE AND CONFIDENCE. I recently got back from Mexico, where I had to find another doctor (a professional one). She recorded the surgery and showed me all the issues he did with my nose, which I was utterly shocked. However, she fixed my nose and breathing problems. Currently, my nose looks completely different and beautiful. I am so in love with my results. She exceeded my expectations even though it has only been a few weeks. More

Honestly, a very nice doctor. I never write reviews for anything, but I wish I had read something warning me of this doctor and the way he operates his practice. It's confusing because he so sweet when you speak with him and he told me everything I wanted to hear a doctor say he could do to fix my nose. Once I was under anesthesia, he did anything he wanted and nothing of what he said he would be doing during the surgery.He did not use an actual anesthesiologist. Instead, I'm assuming to cut corners and make more money, he used a nurse and not a doctor to operate my anesthesia. My heart dropped when I found this out moments before surgery and I wish to God I would have canceled the surgery and listened to my intuition right then. I woke up in excruciating pain from the anesthesia.I could not swallow or speak for 2 days after surgery because of how badly the nurse put in my breathing tube. My nose basically functions worse and makes me look manly and does not fit myself small face at all. He made minor changes and focused on things about my nose that I had not even brought to him as a concern.And then after surgery once I returned to the office they made me resign credit cards receipts probably because he is used to botching patients and dealing with refunds! I was still in so much pain and so out of it I could have signed my life away. I would not have known the difference. I'm honestly amazed that an office and doctor that seems so nice and experienced could ruin my nose the way he did, and they pretend its swelling and scar tissue.My loved ones and family and previous surgeon are all shocked at how my experience was and how out of proportion my nose is especially considering how highly I spoke of him before surgery. Such a disappointment. All I wanted was to have a natural, normal looking, functional, feminine nose and now I look like a flat pointy man's nose was placed on my face. Most painful and traumatic surgery I've ever had.I'm going to fix my mistake and go to a facial plastic surgeon that does ONLY rhinoplasty as a specialty instead of someone who does a ton of all kinds of plastic surgery with no speciality :( He's a very charismatic person, but he's ruined my face and made me look unrecognizable.

Deep Despondence - Denver, CO - For nearly 3 years I have wished I had NOT trusted the skin on my face to Dr. Manish Shah. EVERY day, ALL day. Dr. Shah offered me a complementary fat grafting procedure in an attempt to resolve the issue, but I would never trust him to touch my face again. Absolute nightmare experience. This would be a zero star rating if the option was available. More
