Horrible Rhinoplasty Job at View


Recommended Posts

I waited months before writing this review because I wanted to give myself time to heal. But time hasn’t made my nose any better so I can finally review the rhinoplasty and DES surgery I got at View this past June. I’m trying not to feel so angry as I write this but it’s hard because after spending so much time, money, and effort and coming out less than satisfied with the poor job View did it’s very disheartening. 

I scheduled a consult the same day I landed in Korea with View and met with Dr. Lee Dong Chan. He seemed pleasant enough. During our consult I showed him photos of what I was hoping to achieve. My makeup artist had contoured my nose in some photos which I really liked and asked him for the same outcome. He said it was doable and talked about the implant material and height. Not once during the consult did he mention any talk about deviation. Since he was the expert. I trusted his judgement. 

Next I met with Dr. Kim Jeong Min for my eyes. My main concern was that I had one double lid and one monolid. I asked him to make them even. He recommended incisional which I agreed with. After speaking with Lena over pricing I was then ushered to the lab and got my blood drawn and my photos taken. 

Surgery was the next day in the morning. My labs were fine so I was cleared to proceed. I started with my eyes first. This one you had to stay awake for. The surgery went fine for that part. However I got upset with the nurse that was poking me with the needle for the general anesthesia bc she had difficulty finding a vein and she hurt me several times as she tried to find one that would work. I was knocked out before I could see Dr. Lee again. 

I woke up to pain in my throat and was told it was bc of the intubation. I felt like my whole throat was on fire and I started coughing too. I stayed one night in the View suite and then a couple more nights at a hotel nearby so I could do my check ups. Most of this went fine. It wasnt until they took the cast off that things went drastically downhill.

On cast removal day I HATED my nose on sight. For one it looked horribly off center. I was told it was “swelling.” But I hated it and was crying at how bad it looked. My kids were saying that I resembled “Doby” from Harry Potter! Dr. Lee and the staff at View kept saying it was fine. 

I won’t bore you with the details of the excruciating wait. But as the swelling came down my nose looked even more off center and there was a dark red/purple discoloration at the top of my bridge that wasn’t going away. I kept sending messages to View about this but again I was told it was “fine”

About 4 months post op the redness still hadnt gone away and I could feel how thin the skin on my bridge had gotten. It was starting to scare me so I decided to get a second option. I went to a double board certified ENT plastic surgeon (Dr. Carlos Hornado in Beverly Hills) for a consultation. Dr. Hornado looked at my face and after checking me thoroughly asked “why didn’t they fix your deviation?” I didn’t know what to say. The deviation was NEVER even brought up during my consultation! Then he said what I had feared. The Goretex bridge used was was too high and narrow for my face. It gave me an unflattering pinched look. He said he couldn’t understand why such a high and narrow  implant was used with NO consideration to the integrity of the nose. He said my skin had thinned out a lot and I definitely needed a revision. 

I got home and texted View right away. Immediately Sam rude in insisting that I was also to blame? What the hell? View refused to take any responsibility for the poor job they did on my nose! At one point Sam was saying I “should have known” about my deviation? I couldn’t believe it. I am not a medical doctor, nor do I work in the medical field. How the heck was I supposed to”know” isn’t that why I was paying View? So they could tell me what needed to be done? Fixing a deviation is one of the most basic procedures for an ENT surgeon! I can’t even talk to Sam bc she’s rude and despite telling me that Lena (head of their department) would contact me she never did and still hasn’t! This tells me that once View has your money they fail to care about their patients after the fact and DONT take any responsibility for their mistakes. 

I can’t even begin to express how disappointing, pissed, and stressed I have been since my rhinoplasty. On top of this my eyes went back to being uneven! So both my surgeries were failures. I reached out to other girls on Kakao forums and it turns out there are a lot of girls out there who are DISSATISFIED with their surgeries from View.

In summary I would NOT recommend, refer, or even consider View if you are thinking of getting surgery in Korea. I am now forced to look at my options which will again cost me more time, money, and effort to FIX what View should have done correctly to begin with!
I would also caution anyone going on the View Kakao forums where there are obvious promoters on there. Below I have attached a link with an in depth article about Views questionable sales tactics. I seriously REGRET getting surgery at View and if I had a chance to do it over knowing the things I know now I would NEVER have gone there.

I'm sorry you're going through this. Please spread the word. I almost decided to go to View for my facial contouring surgery. Good luck with your next steps! 

If you're still considering Korea for revision, I can suggest the surgeon went to for my rhino. He's not at all popular or even mentioned anywhere on English online communities, however it was years since I did my rhino and didn't do online research at all. Luckily it turned out really well for me, improved my overall look however so natural that even people who had rhino can't really tell for sure if I had rhino or I was just born with a pretty nose. lol. Hope you all the best

Would you mind sharing the name of your surgeon and clinic?

I'm so sorry to hear this 😞 I hope you are able to find a solution to this soon.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I've heard many great reviews and comments on them, and even had a wonderful consultation with them online but I am definitely not going to go ahead with them.

Omg 😥 
I am sorry to hear about your bad experience with this clinic... I had them on my list once - TG I had crossed them from my list... Hope you will get your nose done as you wished ❤️ 

Thanks for sharing and helping others.

Hi! May I ask who is the surgeon (at which clinic) for your rhino? Thank you!

Oh my gosh! I am so happy that I joined this forum and read your story! I was considering going to View for a consultation and now will avoid at all costs. I see it has been some time since your original post. Have you had any resolution since your original post? Thank you for sharing your story with us! 💜

Hi, thanks so much for sharing this! I'm so sorry this happened.. I didn't even think to ask about nose deviation as a factor in rhinoplasty complications. The way View had responded is so rude. Did they disclose anything about revision policies before you got surgery with them? I remember at one point during my research View was at one of my top choices. I removed them from my list. I hope you get this sorted out.. wishing you luck ❤️
