I am now 6 months post rhinoplasty with Dr. Esmail and the whole experience with him and visage has been great from the consultation, to the surgery day and the check up appointments after. At the consultation Dr.Esmail was very thorough in explaining everything and listening to my concerns and is very honest and says what needs to be done as well as what doesn’t need to be done. You can tell he really has your best interest in mind. Angela and Dav were also great at answering any questions and explaining everything. The day of the surgery everyone is very comforting and makes you feel at ease. The anesthesiologist, nurses and Dr. Esmail make you really feel like you are in great hands and it was very comforting and eased my nerves. The surgery itself went great and the recovery process went very smoothly with hardly any pain. The day before surgery as well as the day after you receive calls/texts to check in on how you are doing which I thought was really comforting and caring. Dr. Esmail has been great at the post op check up appointments. He is truly amazing at what he does and the whole experience with Dr. Esmail and Visage has been great. I am very happy I went with him for rhinoplasty, I have been and will continue to recommend him to anyone.
I went to see Dr Esmail because I was self conscious about the dark bags under my eyes. He suggested both an upper and lower blepharoplasty. I wasn’t expecting to do both, but he was right, the upper has a huge impact. I am so much happier with the way I look now.
The procedure went well and the results are as described/expected. The doctors and nurses also work in hospitals, are clearly very experienced, and were incredibly helpful, friendly, and reassuring. What a great team.
This place is great! I have came a few times following my dog attack last year to try to get rid of my scar. I had an assessment and some injections from Dr. Esmail to which he did for free. They also got me in fast even though they were very busy. I had some laser sessions with Farzana and one microneedling session with Shafroz so far. Everyone was very nice and patient. I am scared of needles and they walked me through the process of everything. Not to mention they have an convenient portal to access your appointments and a great cancellation policy. Would definitely recommend!
I’m liking the looks of my face way better than last year but I am not sure of exactly how effective the sessions have been to reduce my scars so I am hoping after a couple more sessions to get another assessment and compare it to my initial photos. And then decide how to best move forward from there.
