Dr Jay Calvert Secondary Rhinoplasty Video

This video has been viewed 350,000 and tells a great deal about secondary rhinoplasty and the issues with the swelling. There is also a great deal of time that needs to pass in order of the ultimate result to be seen. And...there is no way to speed up that process. For more information about secondary rhinoplasty, please go to

Plastic Surgery Education

#DrJayCalvert #BeverlyHillsPlasticSurgeon

Dr. Jay Calvert, Beverly Hills, CA
Plastic Surgeon

As the ASPS meeting gets underway in Chicago, I am reminded of the journey that I traveled to learn plastic surgery in such a way that I am able to help my patients effectively.  The take-home message on that reflection is: GET GREAT MENTORS!  There is no way to learn plastic surgery in a vacuum and there is no way to know what this specialty is about without having the guidance and direction of those who have been there and done that.

Through the years, I have worked with mentors from many specialties, but the list of the core mentors  makes feel honored to have been guided by such great surgeons.  Here is the short list:

Bruce Brener, MD
Bubba Singleton, PhD
Gerald Stubbs, PhD
Andy Weiland, MD
Louis Drusin, MD
Phil Barie, MD
Lloyd Hoffman, MD
John Bostwick, MD
J. William Futrell, MD
Ken Shestak, MD
Ernie Manders, MD
Jim Russavage, MD
Guy Stofman, MD
Jack Friedland, MD
Dennis Hurwitz, MD
Lee Weiss, PhD
Pradeep Khosla, PhD
Rollin Daniel, MD
Greg Evans, MD
Tim Miller, MD
Grant Stevens, MD
Andrew Ordon, MD
Terry Dubrow, MD
Randy Sherman, MD

There are others, but these are the people who materially influenced the way that I treat patients and think about improving the outcomes for my patients.  Mentors are key!  I thank my mentors for guiding me and helping me because really they have helped my patients and that is the only goal of all I do as a surgeon.

Dr. Jay Calvert Yelp Profile

Now this profile is interesting since many reviews get filtered and even though I do pay to advertise on this site, there is still no way to control who writes the reviews and if they write bad ones.  The folks at yelp do make it clear there is nothing they can do if someone posts a bad review - and if I am paying to advertise, then I am advertising bad reviews.  Seems unfair...  In the future,

Dr. Jay W. Calvert 118 Patient Reviews and Ratings, Plastic Surgeon, Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Jay W. Calvert 118 Patient Reviews and Ratings, Plastic Surgeon, Beverly Hills, CA

This page on Vitals is interesting in that the reviews seem to be written by patients, yet there was really no verification process.  There is no data to confirm that these operations happened, that they went well (or not well), or that the outcome rating is the same that others would use.  That is to say, if a a patient says, the outcome was not good - well, what does that mean?  It wasn't good why?  Is it because the operation took too long?  It was too expensive?  Things don't look right to the patient, but maybe everyone around them likes what they see?  Who knows?

There has to be a way to level the playing field with data...I think this is coming soon.  Stay tuned.
