Had revision Rhino 11/26/08 with Toriumi. Contracted for 6-7 hour nose surgery. Flew to
Chicago, told I was to be 2nd patient of the day. Ist patient a plastic surgery nurse from NYC. My surgery scheduled for 12pm. Ist surgery ran over by 2 hours. Mine did not start until 2pm. OR closed at 7pm. I received 5 hours total. At the consult I asked if he could do an upper eye bleph. Cost 3,500. Thought time would be added. It was subtracted from nose surgery. Toriumi also did a lower eye bleph WITHOUT my consent. Billed me 3,000 for it afterwards. After surgery I was told they moved my nose. It goes to the left, it is a big, boxy blob. Right eye did not turn out. Two days later Toriumi asked if I wanted a face lift. Swollen and shocked, I declined. My surgery should have been postponed. I did not get his time, attention to detail or expertise. I feel I was taken advantage of. My number one priority was a straight, smaller nose. I had 3 procedures, one unauthorized, none of which turned out. I have trouble breathing out of my left nostril. I am a very disappointed Toriumi patient.

I consulted Dr Dean Toriumi 10 years ago. He was rude, mean, autocratic and seemingly disinterested. He tried to belittle me in front of his pupil. After much hesitation I decided to have surgery with him anyway because I mistook his arrogance for expertise. Following surgery my nose was extremely swollen and ugly. I was in profound shock. He offered no advice to deal with the swelling. The follow up meetings I had with him were a sick joke - with his tantrums and barely concealed condescension/disdain. Bullyboy tactics. I spent years avoiding mirrors and photographs.
After a minor closed revision from a different surgeon Dr Toriumi's very bulky/clunky tip cartilage was refined down a bit, but the tip continued to drop. A year ago Dr Toriumi finally agreed to revise his own work. It was a nightmare getting him to do it. He spent a year telling me that he was waiting for "permission" to operate when in truth he was deciding by himself if he could be bothered. After this revision of his own work and two more in office needle procedures, the bulky tip is improved a bit. But it's pinched on the dorsum and there is no tip cartilage in one side of my nose. As a result, I can't breathe properly and need to find a new revision surgeon.
My ear donor sites are a mess (painful to sleep on and aesthetically worse than pre-op). He has abandoned me, and in an extremely mean and condescending way. I was also the victim of a sadistic assault on the operating table by an agency nurse (in front of numerous staff witnesses who obviously all knew what they witnessed was a criminal assault) but my allegation was ignored by Dr Toriumi, his underlings and the surgical centre. I'm still trying to obtain copies of my records a year after requesting them, and Dr Toriumi and cronies are lying to the Office for Civil Rights about it.
Dr Toriumi has a questionable aesthetic sense; and a tendency to be sloppy, callous and unethical. Be warned.
