Patient Testimonials

Hopefully you can see the picture. Can you tell after just three weeks that I had upper eye lid surgery? Looks pretty natural doesn’t it? My lids were very hooded. This piece of artwork was done by Dr. Basil at Novomed. The procedure itself was not painful and is healing nicely. I am very happy with the results!

I can’t recommend Dr. Basil enough. His bedside manner and surgical skills are soo amazing. He is patient, kind, listens and addresses all questions and concerns. His clinic staff and surgical staff love him and speak highly of him also, which says a lot! I’m so happy I found him. If you’re looking for a great rhinoplasty surgeon -see Dr. Basil for a consult, you won’t be disappointed!! Thank you Dr. Basil and your amazing staff (everyone was amazing, and diya especially) for taking the time to help me gain my desired results!

I wanted to do rhinoplasty for years but was so nervous about how it would turn out. I could not be more happy with my results. Dr. Basil was very thorough and answered all my questions. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel safe. Thank you for taking good care of me.
