What Our Patients Say
Hello Dr. Hilinski
Well it has been about a year and a half since my rhinoplasty surgery, and I don’t think that I ever returned for photos, so I wanted to send you my own. Also, I would like to thank you so much for making my dream come true. The surgery has definitely boosted my confidence, and it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Rachel, San Diego Rhinoplasty Patient
Dear Dr. Hilinski,
Just a quick update. Everything seems to be healing very nicely and my nose looks great! This is the happiest I have been in 6 years! You have truly given me my life back! I know you went out on a limb, but you have changed my life for the better. I can’t believe that I found you – truly divine intervention.
Rich and I were so pleased with you and he was blown away by your credentials and skills. I feel so blessed. I no longer look in the mirror and see a stranger! I see the old Paula – I missed that look for so long. No more depression, anxiety, and obsessing. I never thought I could feel so good again. I can’t tell you how many tears of joy I have cried over the past couple of weeks.
