Six years ago, Dr. Aston performed a rhinoplasty on me as I had a very large nose and always wanted to have it made smaller and also...I had a very twisted, double deviated septum. It was a long, longer than expected, surgery of 4.5 hours and I ended up having to stay in the hospital overnight because I had a bad reaction to general anesthesia. I ended up with occasional pain in my two front teeth! Bizarre and he had never heard of it happening. Also, the tip of my nose ended up 6 years later with a cherry-type bump. All in all I looked better, but. When I returned to Dr. Aston to complain about these 2 things about 6 weeks ago, he immediately agreed that he should rectify both issues and scheduled an in-office revision. His staff are and were kind, courteous, receptive and helpful throughout this process. Never once did they tell me I was off base, imagining things or wrong. He did NOT charge me for this revision, for which I am very grateful. It was done promptly and well. I am less than two weeks out from the revision and already my nose looks and feels improved. There are limitations with every nose and I am aware of that, so I don't expect a model nose, but I already look better and can tell my teeth won't hurt anymore so thanks Dr. Aston for your talented hands, your charming way and your wonderful staff! I would highly recommend Dr. Aston!

After a painful accident resulting in damage to my nose, I sought medical help from Dr. Aston. He was recommended to me by a friend who was his patient. I was welcomed by his warm and compassionate staff who are willing to address any and all concerns. Soon, I met with Dr. Aston. He listened attentively to my concerns, examined me and then made his recommendations. I left his office with an understanding of what to expect from the surgery and the recovery process. The evening before surgery, Dr. Aston phoned to make sure that I was ready for tomorrow's operation. He said he would 'quottake good care of me.'quot I knew that I was in good hands. The day of the surgery, he sat with me in the prep room. His conversation helped me to forget that I was feeling a little anxious. Dr. Aston's bedside manner conveys to his patient that their well being is of utmost importance. My result from surgery is excellent. My nose is refined, improved, and natural. I don't look different. I look better! Dr. Aston stands out as a spectacular Doctor and person. If you are his patient, you will be in good hands.

Dr. Aston performed a very botched rhinoplasty on me when I was 17. My nose turned out crooked and very collapsed on one side to the point where I couldn't breathe. He said the problem was unrelated to the surgery, and I naively allowed him to remove the inferior turbinate (inner structure deep in nasal passage) on that side in order to 'quotfix'quot the problem. Turns out that the problem was in fact due to his surgery, as confirmed later on by not one but two other surgeons, both actually double boarded as ENTs and cosmetic surgeons. Removing the turbinate, as Aston did, is actually considered MALPRACTICE, as it turns out. Long term consequences of this surgery, which has not been standard since the 15s, can include permanent loss of sense of smell, which is what eventually happened to me. Removing the turbinate disrupts normal airflow, leading to chronic dryness and infection (as any ENT worth their salt will tell you), and although Aston is not an ENT, plastic surgeons are supposed to know better, according to both my doctors. There's a turbinate implant surgery available, but it's not covered by insurance and it doesn't fully restore function since it can't replicate certain aspects of the real thing. Dr. Aston refuses to pay for this or the corrective rhinoplasty I had done eventually, even though he was sent the surgery report detailing that the problems resulted from his errors. Dr. Aston did an outdated and harmful surgery after botching the original rhinoplasty, was repeatedly dishonest, and failed to take any responsibility for either screw-up. Shame on him. More details on Yelp and Vitals if you're interested.

First of all, Dr. Aston was professional, patient, and did not rush us through any of our appointments with him. He took his time answering our questions, and getting to know the patient. Through out the whole process he was extremely attentive to us and any concerns or needs that we may have had. But beyond that, Dr. Aston is a tremendously skilled surgeon, and this clearly comes across when you meet him, but is demonstrated in the way he performs. My daughter's rhinoplasty is evidence of his skill and, yes, artistry! It was truly a pleasure from start to finish to have him as our daughter's doctor, and we feel fortunate that we chose him for our daughter's rhinoplasty.

Dr. Aston is, without question, the very best in his field. I had facelift and eyelid surgery in February, 212. My experience with this warm, wonderful and highly skilled doctor was excellent from my first appointment. His staff are highly trained and every detail was taken care of in advance by his R.N. Jane Peterson who tended to everything with great care. I would recommend that anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery see Dr. Aston. I am thrilled with the results of the surgery. There are not enough superlatives to describe my experience with Dr. Aston and his staff.
