I had a perforated septal perforation from a previous sinus surgery. My symptoms kept getting worse, so I wanted to see if anything could be done to repair the hole. I was referred to Dr. Kridel by my ENT doctor who said he was a specialist in this type of surgery. There is no question in my mind that I made the right decision to have Dr. Kridel do the surgery. My perforation is gone, my symptoms are gone and my life is back. The attention to detail and the level of care I received was beyond my expectations. Highly recommend. More

I chose this physician based on two physician referrals. I am a 60 year old female that had a face lift and lower bleph. I appear 20 younger from having had the surgery. Not only is he competent, but friendly and answers all questions. This procedure would have cost me double in NYC where I live. His pricing is in line with other plastic surgeons that I consulted with in the Houston area. YES I would recommend Dr. Kridel for facial reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. More

Expensive, but excellent, result repairing septal perforation caused by poor septoplasty overseas in 2009. I am so thankful my wife found Dr. Kridel through internet research & he was also highly recommended by a relative's neighbor (ENT) as being *The Best* at this procedure. In addition Dr. Kridel seemed to manage subtle 'straightening' of my nose as well. However I am most pleased at great success of surgery, as other doctors overseas and in Atlanta had only predicted 50-60% chance of fully closing reasonably large septal perforation. Dr. Kridel's staff were helpful and accommodating. He also trains up & coming medical 'fellows', sharing his expertise, knowledge and skills with young surgeons. Additionally if you have to spend several weeks in Houston to have healing carefully monitored, as I did, it is an interesting place to visit with plenty of museums, parks, shopping options and a huge variety of dining & (healthy) take-out food choices.

I had facial plastic surgery done by Dr. Kridel and the results are amazing! I did a lot of research before I chose a facial plastic surgeon, and I highly recommend Dr. Kridel. The pre-operative and post-operative care is top-notch. He attends to every detail. His staff is professional, caring and very impressive. I am so pleased that I chose Dr. Kridel. More

My daughter had many problems due to a cleft lip/palate at birth. We had always wished that Dr. Kridel could correct the symmetry of her nose for cosmetic as well as physical reasons. His staff was AMAZING and they spent so much time taking pics and examining her and he was even MORE AMAZING! He not only corrected something no other doctor had been able to correct ( she has had surgeries since the age of 1 year of age) but he showed a real concern for wanting to help my daughter who is now entering the medical field as a nurse! We count him among our blessings daily, and as a result of his professionalism and expertise, I now go to him for aesthetic upkeep with Sculptra and fillers! He is a perfectionist and wants his patients to be satisfied and confident and thanks to him, WE ARE! More

Dr. Kridel did a face/neck (F/N) revision done by an acclaimed Houston MD, I will call Dr. “X”. When Dr. X did my F/N, he exchanged breast implants placed 30 yrs ago after a large weight loss. This 1-stop shopping approach to plastic surgery doesn’t work! Dr. X improved my F/N, but residual loose neck skin & a tired look remained; he also did not remove breast scar tissue with the implant exchange. My “new” breasts were dysmorphic & tender. Dr. John Lomonaco, who specializes in breast and bariatric procedures, removed the breast scar tissue, gave me a GREAT lower body lift & highly recommended Dr. Kridel for my residual F/N issues. Dr. X offered to fix my F/N at the cost of the OR, but I chose Dr. Kridel. The cost of another face/neck surgery with Dr. Kridel was worth it! My face is now more natural and less tired appearing. I also LOVE the lack of loose neck skin. More

Dr. Kridel did a face/neck (F/N) revision originally done by another acclaimed Houston MD, I will call Dr. “X”. When Dr. X did my F/N surgery, he exchanged breast implants that were placed 30 yrs earlier after a large weight loss. This 1-stop shopping approach to plastic surgery doesn’t work! Dr. X improved my F/N, but residual loose neck skin & a somewhat tired look remained; he also did not remove built up breast scar tissue with the implant exchange. My “new” breasts were dysmorphic & tender. So I went to Dr. John Lomonaco, who specializes in breast and bariatric procedures, & he removed the breast scar tissue, gave me an AWESOME lower body lift & highly recommended Dr. Kridel for my residual F/N issues. Dr. X offered to fix my F/N at the cost of the OR, but I chose Dr. Kridel. The cost of another face/neck surgery with Dr. Kridel was worth it! My face is now more natural and less tired appearing. I also LOVE the lack of loose neck skin! I find it interesting that Dr. Kridel established and oversees “The Face Foundation”, a charitable organization which helps financially–strapped victims of domestic violence undergo facial procedures, that otherwise would not be available to them. I think it is a telling testament to the level of his skillset, his integrity and his own emotional centeredness. Probably many of those battered and broken individuals are problematic and complex cases, some maybe permanently limited from ever achieving cosmetic perfection. I would imagine a few surgeons, even if paid, would chose to opt out rather than have their work displayed for possible judgment. Nonetheless, Dr. Kridel proceeds; perhaps with the goal of relieving pain, or rebuilding function, maybe restoring dignity and/or offering hope for a brighter tomorrow - nonetheless, he proceeds. Now that’s the physician I want doing my facial surgery! More

I LOVE Dr. Kridel and his staff. It came to my attention less than a year ago that my 12 year old daughter had been suffering from a severe deviated septum as well as over-sized turbinates due to terrible allergies. As a mother, I felt awful not to have caught this sooner so I was determined to do my research and find the right doctor for the job. I was happy to find Dr. Kridel! He is a facial plastic surgeon but his specialty is rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. I found that people from all over come to Dr. Kridel to fix other doctors's mistakes! Our visit to his office was nothing but first class. I had MANY questions which he answered with ease and care. He took his time and made sure we knew what to expect. My daughter had the surgery in January 2014 which included septoplasty and turbinate reduction. The results were outstanding. At every check-up I was amazed with the change. At two months out, she has little to no swelling and can actually breathe again:) Thank u Dr. Kridel! More

My best friend and I wanted for years to have surgery done until one day we decided to go see Dr. Kridel. We had seen a few of his patients (one was my sister) and new that if we were going to do it, it had to be with him. We had surgery 5 months ago and we both love the results! I had face and eye surgery and can't tell you how happy I am. I just look refreshed without that "she had plastic surgery look". The recovery time was short and painless. He takes some much care of his patients along with his staff. Words cannot describe what a wonderful experience it was with Dr. Kridel. This is an important disicion that we take. Don't hesitate, Dr. Kridel is the best doctor there is!! More

The large septal perforation in my nose was embarrassing and causing me to become extremely anxious and depressed. Four doctors had told me that there was nothing to be done. I found Dr. Kridel on the internet and was fortunate enough to be able to see him. Because the perforation was so large, he was not sure if he could repair it in one operation but assured me that it was possible to perform a second surgery in a year's time to achieve a total closure. As it turned out, he was able to do it in one 5 hour surgery. The results are amazing and my emotional health has been restored as well. I was afraid that the doctors and nurses would treat me like a freak but that was absolutely opposite of the care and treatment I received at his office. All of the staff was extremely polite, empathetic and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Kridel to anyone who suffers from this condition. He is a gifted and compassionate doctor who is a perfectionist in his work. More

It took me years to take the plunge. But, I did. I had a facelift and eyelid surgery with Dr. Kridel and I am just thrilled with the results. I attended a wedding and all of my friends asked what I had done because I looked 15 years younger. The recovery was much faster than I thought it would be, very little bruising. I couldn't be happier. More

But not only am I pleased with the results, I also really enjoyed being a patient of Dr. Kridel and his staff. They were always professional, kind, and caring.

I had a wonderful experience getting rhinoplasty at Facial Plastic Surgery Associates. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kridel and his staff. They are all extremely grounded, personable, caring, and real- a breath of fresh air in the plastic surgery world. They will spend as much time with you as you need, answering questions and making sure you feel comfortable. You will know through your interactions with them that they care about you as a person and that your satisfaction is very important to them. I was more than satisfied with the results of my surgery and can't thank Dr. Kridel and his staff enough. More

I am extremely happy with the results of the procedure I chose, laser resurfacing. Dr. Kridel and his staff were supportive, patient and thorough before, during and after the procedure. Dr. Kridel consistently exhibited a high, personal level of concern and interest in my progress as did the staff assigned to my case.At my initial visit Dr. Kridel did a thorough examination in relation to my concerns and then made his recommendation. I was told to go home and think about the procedure. At no time did I feel pressured to have a specific procedure, or to have any procedure. His staff were very accomodating in arranging rides for me and support care.I would recommend Dr. Kridel to anyone considering plastic or reconstructive surgery.I couldn't be happier with the post-operative care or the results.

Dr. Russell Kridel was TOP-NOTCH in his recent treatment of my teenage daughter for her nose surgery. He put her at ease - no small feat! - and patiently and thoroughly explained her options and procedures. His follow-through was thorough and his bedside manner was perfect for my daughter. His office staff were all extremely kind, attentive and accommodating. We all were thrilled with the Home-Run results! Without reservation, I recommend Dr. Kridel and his staff to any patient interested in facial plastic surgery. More

I have never been treated with more kindness or professionalism as a patient then when I became a patient of Dr. Kridel. When I submitted my symptoms online I heard back from his staff immediately in less than 24 hours. I was contacted initially by Linda and Heather and they are just absolutely wonderful. They listen, they were able to troubleshoot any of my complications or objections, and they did so with such kindness. They sincerely care and treated me like family from our very first correspondence. I needed to be seen for a very large perforation to my septum as well as address my crooked nose. I had sustained a violent trauma to my face and my nose took the most significant damage. Over the course of ten years I have been operated on for various complications related to my nose. Three different surgeons, each surgery leaving me worse than when I had initially gone in for a surgical intervention. Ultimately leaving me with a perforation that just got bigger and bigger. The second doctor didn't have the integrity to tell me he didn't receive proper training in the techniques necessary to close such a large perforation, but he operated on me and made my nose worse, and my perf bigger. This doctor increased the size of my perforation by a full cm when it was all said and done. Now more desperate than ever I seek out another doctor who tells me the same thing. He can fix it, but it's a low percentage of success. 60/40 against it being successful. 60% failure rate (remember that number). So he conditioned me for failure and I simply thought it was because the surgery was SO COMPLICATED. Well that is true when you don't know what you're doing. I'm not saying its not a challenging procedure, but when you're not literally trained or inventing your own techniques to bring the success rate of this procedure up to a higher number, you shouldn't be performing it. But this surgeon didn't tell me that, he simply did all he knew to do and gladly accepted my money. Not only did my perforation closure fail after two weeks, he left my nose dramatically crooked. Admitting he left me crooked, his very next sentence having the nerve to say he will straighten my nose out for $10,000 even though he is the one that made it crooked AND said my perf can never be repaired and I should just get a septum button. I was at an all time low, and I had absolutely no hope. I had temporarily accepted the fact I will have to live with this large perforation in my nose the rest of my life. So I tried to establish a routine of lubricating, blowing, saline irrigation, managing nose bleeds multiple times a day etc... It was not only consuming my life, and my every thought daily but now my nose was collapsing due to the fine work of my previous two surgeons. All either of them had to do was tell me I can't help you and I not only would have respected them, I would have thanked them. Because I soon find out that septum perforations are so serious, and can become so much worse over time that you really don't want to mess around by not going to the best of the best! You truly have to go to the best there is the first time out and your percentages of success go way up beyond the astounding percentage of 60%, which in reality is 100% failure if you go to someone that doesn't know what they're doing. He was being overly kind to him self giving me a 40% chance of success. Learn to ask questions of your doctor and don't be afraid to challenge them. If they are what they say they are then your line of questioning and the future well being of your body should not offend their sensibilities. After all of my failed operations I hardly had any native tissue left to work with, and one of my previous surgeons (for some unknown reason) removed my turbinates. Something I only found out upon my first consultation wi Dr. Kridel. Turbinates only moisten and warm the air you breathe in through your nose so who needs those anyways right?I had come to the point where my perforation was unbearable and could not wait any longer to get it fixed. I live in New Mexico (don't go to New Mexico for septum perforation repair) but I was determined to go where ever I needed to go in the world to have this treated. So I began searching online, no longer trusting doctors or doctor recommendations and I sought out the best in the world. I actually found the best in the world and he lives one state over located out of Houston TX. I made my appointment immediately. This is why I love Doctor Kridel and his staff so much, not only did they take time to truly listen and even empathize with me, they shared my sense of urgency and understood my desperation. They got me in and did a very thorough examination of my nose and in doing so cared about my emotional state. It is a very friendly and warm environment. They knew I was suffering from trust issues at this point, medically/physically desperate, psychologically damaged and just depressed, hopeless and paranoid that there is no solution for me, and even if there was how long until it fails? They took all these feelings into consideration when treating me, not only managed my expectations regarding outcome but made me feel better with their warmth and honesty. I have never been more at ease or comfortable and I finally, after ten years, had the first glimmer of hope. I was on the operating room table the next morning following my initial consultation so they could remove all the damaged scar bands still in my nose in order to increase my chances of hitting Dr. Kridels 94% closure rate! NINETY-FOUR PERCENT confirmed and documented!! The best part about my first surgery with him was he sutured in some light plastic sheeting over my perforation and temporarily closed my perf. He did this to protect the tissue but he also gave me the best night of sleep I'd had in ten years because NOW I can actually breathe. It was an incredible look into my crystal ball to see what my life can actually be like if this operation is successful!I stayed in Houston recovering from that surgery while having daily appointments so they could not only monitor where I was at in my healing but suction out my nose providing me with more comfort. Dr. Kridel has an amazing team! Aside from the wonderful Linda and Heather, Susanna took care of me on a very regular basis. Susanna even went round and round with my insurance provider for 30 minutes. She just never stopped going above and beyond. I was also cared for with such kindness by the brilliant Dr. Sturm-O'Brien and Dr. Burstein and I just never had a care in the world under their watchful eyes. I had commented to Dr. Angela Sturm-O'Brien that she had such an acute understanding of what I am going through it felt as if she had literally gone through what I am experiencing first hand. She just got it! My second procedure was blocked out for six hours. This was the big one! The permanent closure to my perforation. Lucky surgery number six on my nose. Dr. Kridel truly wanted to make everything perfect and really pay true attention to detail. He is a consummate perfectionist which is why he is the best doctor in the world for what he does. Not even for what he does, for me he is the best doctor in the world! Reason being my operation was a success and he closed my perforation. AND he even straightened my horribly disfigured nose out. I got the aesthetic and functionality of my nose back all at once! To this day I still can't believe it. They took a hopeless young man, cared for me as family and they healed me. Dr. Kridel is my healer and I thank god every day for him. I am imploring any one out there with a septum perforation to seek him out. He makes no promises, but he doesn't need to. His confidence and passion for healing patients psychologically and physically has actually brought me to tears. When Dr. Sturm-O'Brien and Susanna removed my bandages/cast it took me a couple of minutes before I could even look in the mirror for the big reveal. She and Susanna were so patient with me as well as encouraging that I finally was able to look at my face and at long last I recognized it! He gave me my nose and face back. He did it with a smile on his face the entire time as did his entire staff. The saddest part of this entire experience for me is that I will never be able to show them my full gratitude. No amount of thanks says it, even though they require none. They gave me my life back and I've felt reborn ever since I had the pleasure of being his patient. He gave me a life and a future and there is just nothing I can ever say or do to show my sincerest gratitude. Thank you Dr. Kridel, thank you to your dedication and pursuit of this revolutionary technique in healing. You will always remain in my thoughts and prayers. You are a remarkable human being and I am honored to be your patient. Most Sincerely,Matt Nickerson More

Review from  |  Office Visit  | 

When I was young, I was in a very traumatic bike accident that completely scarred my face and ruined my nose. My dad made me get steroid injections to break down the scar tissue as much as possible but the bone was still messed up and the cartilage at the tip of my nose was uneven. Throughout my childhood, after the scar got too thin for more injections my nose was always a topic of conversation. I was so insecure about it, we always knew I should get a rhinoplasty when I was old enough. I never imagined it would be such a wonderful place with such an amazing surgeon. My entire time with facial plastic surgery from consultation to post op has been nothing short of amazing. I am so thankful for the way I have been cared for here, not to mention the fabulous results. Dr. Strum is the best by far. More

I’ve been wanting to have a rhinoplasty for such a long time. Like many kids I was teased for having a bigger nose than most. It gave me low self-esteem and I disliked the bump on my nose. I decided to have my surgery done and went to see Dr. Sturm. They listened to my wants and helped me decide on what I should do. From the first day of my consultation I knew I came to the right place. Not only was everyone helpful and caring but Dr. Sturm went above and beyond and results came out better than I expected.

In 2012 they found a cyst on my pituitary the size of a golf ball. After the surgery to remove the cyst I noticed the hole in my septum. The doctor who performed my first surgery didn’t seem to care and sent me to an ENT who took care of me for about a year. A friend of the family did some research and found Dr. Kridel. I am so very thankful he did. The septal repair he did was amazing with little down time and great results. I am able to breathe better and not have any crusting. I appreciate Dr. Kridel and his staff for the great attentive care they have given to me. More

Since I can remember, I have had a fairly severe deviated septum that has always bothered me. It was visible at the base of my nose. I was always very self-conscious about it, to the point I felt like it was keeping me from being myself and enjoying many normal situations. I finally realized that if I wanted things to be different, I would have to take the initiative to make a change. After doing much research, I made an appointment with Dr. Kridel who assured me he could help me. From that first appointment, through surgery and all the post op appointments, everyone at FPSA has been so nice and wonderful. I am forever grateful for their expertise, council and kindness in addition to the outstanding results! More

I was born with a cleft lip and palate and have had many surgeries in the past 22 years. The happiest I have been with how I look was after the surgeries I had with Dr. Kridel.

He is very talented and I am extremely blessed and lucky to have had him as my surgeon. More

Plastic surgery is a big decision. Dr. Kridel and all of his staff made it seem completely normal. They never pressed you, but just spoke normal about the procedure. Seeing before and after photos really helped convince me that I was making the right choice. The procedures are delicate and involved, but I was truly surprised at the small amount of pain. I’m very pleased with my results and I would recommend Dr. Kridel without reservation. More

My experience with Dr. Kridel and his office couldn’t have been better. They make me feel comfortable from beginning to end. They answered all my questions and let me know what to expect. My recovery was way easier than Ii expected. I am thrilled with the results I received and I am very happy I chose Dr. Kridel to perform my surgery. I wish I had done it sooner. Thank you to Dr Kridel and his staff. More

I always hated my nose. I had too much cartilage and a bump on my nose. Dr Kridel really truly did a wonderful job repairing and making my nose look more feminine and balanced. Thank you so much for everything. Wonderful doctor and wonderful staff. More

Couldn’t imagine a better nose. I love it. I have more confidence and genuinely pleased with my appearance. After my first rhinoplasty, I was very disappointed with the results and afraid to try again. 5 years later, I decided to start researching a revision rhinoplasty doctor. Dr. Kridel came highly recommended and seemed to be the obvious choice. Even though his fees are higher, I had a higher confidence level in the success. Surgery went great and I could not be more pleased. My nose looks great! It is also so natural and fits my face. Thrilled I went with Dr. Kridel. More

Before the surgery I had a hard time breathing and I was very self-conscious about the shape. Now that I had the surgery done I am very confident and almost never think about my old nose. More

I was involved in a traffic accident. It broke my nose. I am involved in martial arts and again broke my nose. The results were a disfigured nose and flat nose appearance. Dr Kridel fixed my nose and I am more confident in my appearance. More

Review from  |  Office Visit  | 

After two unsuccessful rhinoplasties, with the 2nd leaving me with a deviated septum, I was skeptical about another. I did my research and read many great things about Dr. Kridel so I sent my photos in and scheduled a consult. I was even more confident after meeting him and his staff. I knew he was the one I wanted to perform my final surgery. Post op, I am very happy with my results, especially my profile. I can breathe again too. More

My overall experience with Rhinoplasty with Dr. Kridel has been very positive with better results than I expected. The care received from the office staff, surgical center and Doctors has made this experience easy, non-stressful, and feeling very cared for. I’m very happy and love my nose! If I knew it was going to be this easy and pain-free I would have done it years ago!! Thank you. More

Review from  |  Office Visit  | 

After a few very unsuccessful rhinoplastys, Dr. Kridel was able to reshape my nose into one nobody would ever question me not being born with. It looks completely natural, which I had convinced myself would never be possible. I wished I would have seen Dr. Kridel in the beginning. To compliment Dr. Kridel, he has a staff of folks that I feel really cared about every inch of my treatment. If you are reading this and considering Dr. Kridel --- look no further. Dr. Kridel is truly the best facial artist. More
