I was referred to Dr. Nayak by my dermatologist. She noticed the result of prior basel cell carcinoma surgery on my right nostril. The result was hideous and I was sure I would have to live with it forever. The moment I walked into Dr. Nayak's office his staff treated me fantastic. They are all delightful.
I was especially impressed with the way Dr. Nayak put me at ease, assuring me he could give me satisfying results. He explained the process and what the results would be and he was spot-on!
Dr. Nayak continued seeing me monthly for additional steroid injections, never charging me another dime for any of my follow-up treatments.
Now I can smile again! Thank you Dr. Nayak, and your wonderful staff of professionals! I'm almost going to miss see you all. But I have a feeling I'll be back..... only next time it will be for beauty treatments. You guys rock!
Dr. Nayak is great! He performed an endoscopic brow lift on me and the result was awesome. I looked at the before and after pictures, and the difference in my face was amazingly eye-popping. I went from looking like I was angry to looking like I was incredibly welcoming.
Outside of the results and cost of the procedure , I have to say that Dr. Nayak took time to answer all my questions, patiently explaining the procedure to me and what to expect after the procedure. More importantly, he made me feel as if he truly cared about my well being.
And lastly, his staff, the nurses and schedulers at the front office, are cheerful and very good at what they do. And even his office building is welcoming. Just a wonderful setting all around.
I am 43 years old. I have been going to Dr. Nayak’s for approximately 4 years for Botox injections. The one thing that I have always hated about my body is my double chin. Even when I was young and thin, I still carried fat in my neck/throat area. Instead of having a nice straight jaw line, I had a ski slope. In 1996 and 2004, I had liposuction to try to get rid of the double chin. Although it improved for a while, I never achieved the result I truly wanted. Unfortunately, as I hit 40 and after having 4 kids, my neck started sagging even more and I was getting the "turkey neck!" In every picture, you could see the fat under my chin. Ugh!! I finally talked with Dr. Nayak about what kind of improvement he thought he could make. He initially recommended a mini-lift with submentoplasty (which is the tightening of the muscles in the neck).
My first thought was why do I need a face lift. Heck, I was only 42 and truthfully my facial skin is in good shape. He explained that to truly get the nice youthful jaw line and to get rid of what I called my “ski slope neck,” he would need to do a mini-lift in addition to tightening the neck muscles (submentioplasty). In addition, he recommended a small chin implant to lengthen my jaw line to help me get that straight jaw line.
After much deliberation and talking with my hubby, I took the plunge and decided to go through with the surgery in Feb of 2012. WOW, it was the best decision I ever made and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. We live about 4 hours away from St. Louis. I went in the night before my surgery and showed up around 6:00 a.m. on a Thursday to be prepped for surgery. I think in total, the surgery lasted about 4 hours.
Afterwards, my mom took care of me at a local hotel down the street since I needed to come in the next morning for a quick check. Although my face was swollen, I had NO BRUISING whatsoever!! That was apparently due to the use of a drain. I had incisions around both ears and under my chin. I have a pretty high threshold for pain and so I didn’t need any of the pain meds beyond the first two days. I just stuck with over the counter after day 2.
The Monday after my surgery (4 days post-op), I went back to work in my office. I was still swollen but the people at my office knew I had undergone the surgery so it wasn’t a big deal. I would say it was about 9 days before the swelling was down enough that people wouldn’t notice.
I am now almost a year out and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with my neck. My incisions are completely invisible. I feel tons younger and even my husband (who at first thought I was crazy for having the surgery) can tell a huge difference! The other thing I would mention that I love about Nayak Plastic Surgery is that they care about quality not quantity. When my mother-in-law saw Dr. Nayak for a face lift consultation, he was very candid and honest with her about why he didn’t really recommend she undergo the procedure. He explained that because of the condition of her skin and her age, she probably wouldn’t get the outcome she expected. It gave us confidence to know that Dr. Nayak wouldn’t perform a procedure where he wouldn’t be satisfied with the result.
My wife had extensive chin and neck repair perfomed by Dr. Nayak in June of 2012. Results were stunning. At age 64 she had acquired a major "turkey neck" that was so unsightly to her that she had refused to have her picture taken for years.
His surgery was "tightly" done and recovery was quick. His staff was first rate. All were available post-op 24/7.
Wife now looks 15 years younger and her friends think she just lost weight. This was some of the best money I've spent and Dr. Nayak has set the bar pretty high for other medical professionals. Highly recommended
You will LOVE your look! I had a mini-lift and upper and lower lid surgery. I did extensive research before choosing Dr. Nayak and his team and they are the best. If you are even mildly interested or curious what your benefits from surgery could be I strongly encourage you to talk with Dr. Nyack. I am so happy with my results. You will be too!
Wonderful Plastic Surgeon – Dr. Nayak rebuilt my left nostril after I was diagnosed with a very deep and disfiguring skin cancer. He recommended a more involved 2 step surgery with 6 weeks in between the two surgeries. He was very honest about how strange the "flap" would look that I would have in between the surgeries. But he emphasized that this would be worth it with the result being so much better than just one surgery. I agreed to go with his advice. He took the back of my ear to rebuild my nostril and explained that this is the best tissue match. It seemed unbelievable that this could work. Well two surgeries and 6 weeks later it was a miracle! My nose looks completely normal! Dr. Nayak explained everything perfectly while being honest and compassionate. He is a truly wonderful doctor!
Fantastic Plastic Surgeon – Dr Nayak's expertise in plastic surgery is truly amazing. I had a very bad experience with another St. Louis plastic surgeon and Dr. Nayak was able to correct a badly placed facial implant. The staff are very kind and compassionate as well. Dr. Nayak also provides his services to charities locally and internationally. I recommend Dr. Nayak very highly to anyone that is considering plastic surgery.
Brilliant Plastic Surgeon – I can not say enough about Dr. Nayak and his staff! They make you feel right at home not to mention that Dr. Nayak is an excellent plastic surgeon! God has blessed Dr. Nayak with amazing skills. Dr. Nayak is always punctual and very thorough. I have never waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Dr. Nayak and his wife Avani are passionate about paying it forward and are involved in many charities. I would refer anyone to Dr. Nayak he is absolutely brillant! Dr. Nayak is genuinely concerned about his patients. Dr. Nayak personally takes the time to call his patients after surgery. Dr. Nayak is the whole package!!
