Dean Toriumi, M.D. receives amazing reviews.

Read what patients have to say about the care they received and how their lives are better.

"One month out of surgery and my life has been transformed. Prior to surgery I was insecure and unhappy. (After surgery)  I'm more outgoing, I feel confident and I'm able to enjoy life."

"I lived with a deformed nose since 1990, after 3 previous rhinoplasties. I never thought it would be possible to have what Dr. Toriumi has blessed me with. He is beyond brilliant."

"After a long journey with multiple rhinoplasties that had not gone well, I knew I only had one more chance. I needed a surgeon with a high level of expertise. Dr. Toriumi exceeded my expectations and I am so very grateful for his help. I can finally put this past me in life and move on. He was able to do exactly what I wanted and needed. If you’re considering Dr Toriumi, he won’t disappoint. Don’t make the mistake of going to someone else, especially if you have had multiple surgeries already. Dr. Toriumi is an expert and the best in his field."

"I wish more people knew about Dr Dean Toriumi. I’m a well known dermatologist in Los Angeles. I had secondary rhinoplasty with him and broke my nose years later and he fixed that too. There’s no one in the country who does work like him. Pat Golden, his nurse, is so amazing I love her. If you want your nose to look natural, symmetrical, and elegant, go to him. I’m so lucky that a plastic surgeon referred me to him, knowing he’s the best and he couldn’t perform the miracles Toriumi can. I am forever grateful he’s truly the leader in rhinoplasty."

"Dr. Toriumi, in my opinion, is the best plastic surgeon in Chicago. His office provides excellent customer service with ease in making appointments and friendly, skilled and helpful employees. It is in a great location in the Gold Coast with discounted parking in the building."

"Dr. Toriumi and his staff are fabulous. I'm a OR/pediatric intensive care nurse who was born with a good looking nose that was severely damaged and disfigured. He reconstructed my nose and now it's naturally beautiful, structurally strong, and functioning. No more headaches, breathing difficulties or nasal sprays. My nose is a work of art. This surgery was the best decision of my life. Dr. Toriumi is talented, skilled, and world renowned. If you require nasal surgery save yourself the trouble and choose Dr. Toriumi. He's the very best. My word on it."

How does a Dr. Toriumi determine if I am a good candidate for surgery?  

If you are in good health, typically you are a good candidate for plastic surgery. Of course, Dr. Dean Toriumi will give you a thorough health evaluation to ensure you are fit to undergo surgery. During your consultation, it’s important that you honestly go over your medical history. Dr. Toriumi also wants you to communicate your expectations, plastic surgery goals, and concerns. He will go over what you can realistically expect and how you can best prepare for surgery. 

What is the difference between facial plastic surgeons performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery?

Dr. Toriumi, performs a variety of procedures for a variety of reasons. Cosmetic surgery reshapes normal structures of the body to improve appearance and confidence. It’s usually not covered by insurance because it is elective. Reconstructive surgery, on the other hand, is performed because the natural structures of the body are negatively affected by defects, disease, infection, or other reasons. Dr. Toriumi treats both kinds of patients, but the result is always the same: they love the way they look. Toriumi Facial Plastics can help you love the way you look, too. Call now for a consultation and to start on the road to confidence and self-esteem today. 

What is the recovery from facial plastic surgery like?

As with all medical procedures, your recovery from surgery depends on your body and how closely you follow the Dr. Toriumi's instructions. As far as pain is concerned, each patient will handle and tolerate the pain in different ways. But you don’t have to worry about pain levels becoming unbearable. Dr. Toriumi will prescribe the appropriate types and quantities of pain medication so that you can recover both safely and comfortably. Most of our patients report minimal discomfort in the post-op period.

Is facial plastic surgery safe? 

Like any medical procedure, there are risks associated with facial plastic surgery. To reduce your risks, Toriumi Facial Plastics employs highly professional medical staff to give you the best possible outcome. The best way you can prepare for a safe and successful surgery is to follow Dr. Toriumi's instructions. Follow all pre- and post-operative guidelines and be totally transparent about your medical history, physical and emotional well-being, and anything else you think might affect your surgery or your results. One of the ways you can work toward a safe procedure is to take every precaution to prepare your body for surgery and then take care of your body afterward.

How can my facial plastic surgeon help me minimize swelling and bruising? 

Because facial plastic surgery is just that—surgery—you can expect your body to bruise and swell as it heals. However, there are steps you can take to ensure the healing process is as smooth as possible. Before surgery, you’ll have consultations with your plastic surgeon where he will tell you the best ways to care for your body up to the surgery date. How you prepare your body will greatly affect your recovery, including bruising and swelling. After surgery, you’ll receive more post-op instructions. The most common mistake patients make in the recovery process is rushing along their healing, often because of unreasonable expectations. Your body has just undergone a major operation. It needs time to rest and heal. If you don’t give yourself time, you will increase bruising and swelling and put yourself at risk for hurting yourself even further. 

What does post-operative care look like with Dr. Toriumi? 

Every patient is different, as is post-op care and the healing process. For most of our procedures and patients, you undergo an outpatient procedure and are home the same day. While with us, you will be cared for by a team of expert and compassionate staff. If you are able to go home and have someone there to care for you, Dr. Toriumi will send detailed instructions on how to clean the procedure site and what you need to do to heal best according to your specific situation.
