The fact that Dr. Kridel only does faces makes him an expert in his field. Everything about my procedure was top notch. I was well prepared for my surgery and had realistic expectations due to the computer imaging. It's fun to see what you are going to look like. My procedure was painless and I love the way I look. I am 53 and had a lower face lift. Now, I look like I am in my early forties. Dr. Kridel's claim-to-fame is that you do not look overdone; I look very natural. His staff is also courteous and helpful. And the follow-up care I am receiving is also wonderful. How many doctors send you flowers?If you are considering facial plastic surgery he should be your only choice. More

Great browlift results! - I'm thrilled; it's even better than I expected! The results are subtle to everyone else, but make a big difference to me (which I think is what most people want from plastic surgery)! The doctor(s) and staff were incredibly friendly, thorough, and caring. I would highly recommend this office to anyone thinking of having a facial cosmetic procedure! More

And everyone thinks it's the eye cream! - Dr. Sturm has a quiet, kind, professional bedside manner and she takes a conservative approach so my results are subtle to others but game-changing for me. She listened and acknowledged every detail of my concerns and made sure I was comfortable. After the surgery there was personal follow up and attention to my healing.

Dr Kridel and his staff are fabulous! I couldn't ask for a better doctor and surgeon. - My experience was wonderful! From the moment i walked in the office Dr. Kridel and his staff made me feel welcome. I had a very complicated revision rhinoplasty. I was scared and unsure whether i wanted someone to operate on my nose again. After speaking with Dr. Kridel i was confident that he was the only one for the job. He assured me that he woudn't operate unless he truly believed he could help me. Now my nose is better than i could have hoped for. More

To choose a surgeon once because of her skill and achievement at such a young age is one thing . Last year I was Dr Sturm O'Brien Patient for FFS . Her results were the proof to me to call back and ask The Very intelligent caring patient coordinator to see her again for alloderm -lip lift and extensive lipo suction . once the bandages came off I looked beyond minor bruising and said I feel Gorgeous for the first time in many years .

From the first day of my consultation to the days after the surgery, Dr. Sturm was so professional, accommodating, and caring!! She is very skilled at what she does! I could not have asked for a better surgeon! It is true, Dr. Sturm is the best in Houston and will go above and beyond to make sure you have a successful experience!! I would most definitely recommend her. The staff there are also some of the most friendly, caring people you will meet and I was so glad I could trust them and Dr. Sturm! More

May 2, 2016 - Dr. Kridel is an excellent facial plastic surgeon. He was recommended to me by a well-known dermatologist, but I still took the time to research and visit several facial plastic surgeons before choosing him to perform my 16-year-old daughter's rhinoplasty. She also had septum and turbinate surgery at the same time to help her breathing. Our experience from start to finish has been stellar. Dr. Kridel is very caring and has a great bedside manner. He even arranged his schedule so we could have the surgery done over Christmas instead of waiting until summer. He is very clear when relating what can and cannot be done, and gives a lot of thought to the long-term success of your procedure. His staff is very knowledgeable and helpful also. My daughter got a great result from her surgery. More

Dr. Sturm performed an upper eyelid lift. Surgery went extremely smoothly, and healing was a breeze. Plus, it's exactly the result I wanted. Minimal downtime, and I can only speak for myself, but I had no pain whatsoever throughout the entire process and very minimal bruising/swelling, which only lasted a few days. Her office staff is superb, with excellent pre-op visits, including a consultation that felt very easy and comfortable, answering all my questions. Several post-op visits, with great care taken to ensure my healing went as well as could be expected. Highly recommend! More

Excellent experience - I did a lot of research over the past two years and dr kridel's name came up several times. The consultation was first-class in every way from punctuality to how I was treated by his staff and then the time he took to explain the procedure for my facelift and eyelid lift and to answer my list of questions. During the surgery process, I was treated like the most important person in the world by Dr Kridel and the hospital staff. I felt like every step in the recovery was so well-explained. This was a totally positive experience-the fact that I look like myself, only as I looked in pictures from 10 years ago, is the ultimate and I can't recommend Dr Kridel highly enough. More

Although she hasn't performed surgery on me, her bedside manners are top notch. She treats you like a person, like a friend or family member, not just as a patient as most doctors have treated me in the past. She will give you her honest opinion, and not push extras on you that you don't need. Thank you for being you Dr. Sturm!! More

repaired a very old injury to my nose that I thought would never be fixed. - Dr. Kridel and his entire team work together seamlessly to provide patient care at the highest level. In my case, this was a very difficult surgical repair that I thought would never be fixable. However Dr. Kridel is truly a gifted surgeon and made my nose look perfect, function normally and also gave it strength. This man and his team have truly changed my life. There was such respect given not only to patients, but to each other as well. The office, including Kirby Glen Surgery Center, was professional and caring. I can not thank Dr. Krldel and his wonderful associates enough. I was blessed to have been worked on by a master! Thank you! More

Dr Kridel you can tell is a perfectionist and yet very easy to talk to. He explained that just getting a chin implant would not achieve the results I wanted so he also suggested a facelift. I am so happy with the results More

Wonderful Experience - From the beginning, Dr. Kridel put me at ease. This was my first plastic surgery. I had a facelift and upper eye lid reduction. I am a 49 year old female. He was always reassuring. He explained everything about the surgery in detail. He was always on time and courteous. His staff is phenomenal. The follow up to surgery was great. He answered all of my questions and concerns. I would go back to him or refer him to my friends in a heart beat. He is an excellent Dr. who is very skilled and is truly concerned about the patient and not just money! More

37 Years Old, Suffered a Broken Nose at 10 Years of Age - Houston, TX - My nose was broken in childhood skiing accident and because it didn't look bad my parents didn't realize it at the time and it was left untreated. As I got older I started suffering from migraines and sinus problems. Years later an ear, nose, and throat doctor performed and X-ray and was surprised to see just how badly broken it was. He suggested that I may want to consult with a surgeon about repairing my nose and that's when I found Dr. Sturm. I was very nervous that the procedure would change my appearance as that was not my intention. Dr. Sturm reassured me that it would be a subtle change that only enhanced my face and she was so right. I love my results, the bump on my nose is gone but I still look like me and I feel so much better. Migraines are gone and this is the first year I haven't suffered with a major sinus infection. Dr Sturm is so nice and I honestly look forward to every checkup. The whole experience went like I was told it would and I am so glad that I found such a great surgeon and staff to take care of me.

I was having difficulty breathing through my nose and I couldn't smell or taste after a previous surgery. I was really miserable and wanted to be able to breathe again without having issues. I researched for awhile and found Dr. Sturm-O'Brien. She is a very qualified and compassionate physician who went above and beyond from my first consultation to my surgery to my many follow up visits. She explained everything in detail before anything was done and was available if I had any questions, which made the experience less stressful. I am doing so much better now and it is because of Dr. Sturm-O'Brien. I would highly recommend Dr. Angela Sturm-O'Brien. More

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

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

Very Glad I Did This - Houston, TX - Look to the ears, ladies...and gentlemen!I read somewhere to judge the skills of a facial plastic surgeon by how your ears look after surgery. My incisions were virtually undetectable after surgery and by 2 weeks out I could wear a ponytail. No one in my family knows that I had the facelift...just that I look relaxed and refreshed. I've lost quite a bit of weight in the past few years, so people think my face shrunk from that, but I was very aware of my turkey neck and wore my hair forward to cover it. Three weeks after the surgery, I met with people I knew, and no one notices. As a patient who has worked in a hospital setting, I really wanted a surgeon who had an ENT background. Dr. Sturm O'Brien had that, plus she completed an extra year of specialized facial plastic surgery training. I was traveling to Houston for body contouring surgery and researched different facial plastic surgeons in the area. I wanted someone who would be with me over the years if I decided to go back in 10-15 years. I kept returning back to Dr. Sturm O'Brien. She was young, highly intelligent, skilled and there was something about her that I trusted. I'm a very good judge of character, and after meeting her, was confident in my decision to move forward. Also, professionals that I interacted with...other surgeons, nurses and ophthalmologists...had only positive things to say about her. After consultation with her, I made the decision to go forward with a complete facelift, endoscopic brow lift and lower bleph. Each person's consult is individualized...that's why I didn't put pricing info up above...it would also depend on the number of OR hours you would need plus anesthesiologist hours. I am adding some photos, but I'm a private person; I hope they help others. All of the photos are right after a shower (some soap suds if you look carefully) and with no makeup. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I also must add that the staff was great, especially Lisa, the nurse I saw most often and Linda, the fantastic patient coordinator. 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

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

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

Best Hands and Bed Side Manner in the Business! - Houston, TX - I have been hesitant to tackle any of those early signs of aging for fear of looking "done". Once I met with Dr. Sturm all those fears were laid to rest. She has an unmatched bedside manner and the softest touch when it comes to injections. From my injectables (Botox, Restylane and Belotero) to Fraxel and Ulthera, I just cannot say enough about my treatment. My family and friends rave about how refreshed I look and swear I have either lost weight or been on an extended vacation. That is when I let them in on the secret, Dr. Sturm is the best! More

Septal Perforation - 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

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

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 t More

EXCELLENT, COMPASSIONATE, PROFESSIONAL CARE! - 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 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.

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.

Septoplasty Revision/septal Perforation Repair - Houston, TX - This is a difficult, lengthy, specialized surgery with several followup visits of varying lengths for analysis of healing, removal of stitches, review of aftercare procedures etc. Thus the high cost of a highly-trained specialist; not only withENT credentials, but also facial plastic surgery training. I cannot submit photos or videos easily as surgical procedure was 'way up' inside my nose -- which is also 'straighter':) More

To say Dr. Kridel is awesome is actually a gross understatement. His keen eye, precision & attention to detail is first-class. When I am at his office to get fillers & other non invasive procedures, I know I am getting the best treatment humanly possible. He comprehends the science behind the treatments & makes sure as a patient you understand exactly what ur getting. His esthetician (Lacy Gifford) is another reason why I patronize Today?s Face. She is phenomenal at what she does which is to make ur skin Fabulous. I am proud to say I have a Team Gifford lifetime membership card. Great Job Dr K & Lacy!!! Two Thumbs Way Up!!! More

Thank you Dr. Kridel - I am in my early fifties and work. I am in a competitive industry and I was getting self conscious that I was looking tired and old. I met with other docs too, but no one seemed to be as nice or listen like Dr. Kridel and his staff. He took time with me and was very honest. I had Fraxel laser on my face and neck, botox in my forehead and restylene in the lines by my mouth. None of it hurt. Let me tell you, I look soooo much better. The age spots on my face are not noticeable, my face creases are gone and I was only out of the office for a day and half. My friends in the office kept telling me how great and refreshed I looked. I didn't tell them a thing. I am just getting started and will never go to anyone else. More

Amazing results! - First of all, when choosing a doctor, make sure they are properly certified! Dr. Kridel is certified in many areas, most notably with the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. This was my number one priority in researching doctors. He is well educated and has been in practice a long time. I am very meticulous and strive for perfection. In plastic surgery, the term 'perfect' can't be used, however, in my mind, Dr. Kridel exceeded my expectations! Being a well informed patient is key to any successful operation, and Dr. Kridel makes sure you are informed. He will spend as much time with you as needed and has the warmest bedside manner! He is truly gifted and worth every penny! If you want THE BEST RESULTS in THE BEST ENVIRONMENT, run to Dr. Kridel!! More

Also, completely rebuilt my cartlidge and was even able to get blood vessels to my new cartlidge to keep it alive in the future. I had this done in 1992 and ever since, my nose has been perfect. When I needed an Ear Nose and Throat doctor, I went to Kridel for his recomendation and the doctor he set me up with has been a godsend. There is not enough good things I can say about Kridel.

Dr. Kridel performed a face lift on me in May 2009. I had absolutely no bruising and minimal swelling. I was back to work in 7 days. The preoperative explanantions and exam by both the doctor and his staff and the follow up care was exceptional. The results are so natural looking that my son and out of town family can not tell that i have had a face lift, they just ask me if I am ever going to age. Fellow workers who know that I have had the procedure done tell me it is the best results they have ever seen. I would not let anyone else work on my face.I highly recommend Dr. Kridel to anyone looking for a true artist to correct deformities or an aging face. More

A few years after I had my first rhinoplasty (by another surgeon in the Houston area), i started to notice that the tip of my nose was turning to the side. Apparently a strut inside buckled and the cartilage was twisting on itself. I did not do my homework and I returned to my first plastic surgeon and had him go in to fix it. BIG MISTAKE! Not only did he mess up the appearance of my tip (he drooped it down), but he also stopped the flow of air through one nostril. I was soooo upset! I lived with frustration and regret for a full year while I waited for the swelling to subside so I could have it fixed. Over that year, I did some indepth studying up on rhinoplasty and REVISION rhinoplasty (yes there is a big difference!!!). I learned that I should have looked for a FACIAL plastic surgeon as opposed to a general plastic surgeon. I also learned that I should have found a surgeon who speciialized in REVISION nose surgery. THANK GOODNESS I FOUND DR. KRIDEL!!!!He not only fixed the appearance of my nose, he also fixed the breathing. I am sooooo happy!!! It is still a little swollen (2 months out), but even swollen it is better than how it looked prior. I can't wait to see it 1 year out. More

As a young woman I dove into a swimming pool from a ten meter diving board; miscalculating the depth, I had a face first hit with the concrete bottom. The impact to my face ended up breaking two teeth, splitting my top lip, and causing my nose to bend into a weird, distorted shape. To patch up after the incident, I had to have stitches on my lips and some teeth replaced, but I wanted to hold out for a good doctor to fix my nose, which everyone agreed looked just awful (I was terribly self-conscious about how it looked). As I matured, I was researching thoroughly for not only a good plastic surgeon, but a doctor who understood trauma to the nose. I visited a few doctors and as soon as I found myself at Dr. Kridels office, I knew I was going to be in good hands. The atmosphere at his office was of such cordiality and tranquility that I felt at ease despite the many questions and concerns I had. With very satisfying results and a beautifully natural nose, I highly recommend his practice. Texas. Grace Haggerty More

After a lot of research, I selected Dr. Kridel to perform surgery to correct saggy eyelids that made me always look tired and half-alseep. He specializes only in facial plastic surgery. In addition, if you Goggle him you'll find out about his impressive background and all the articles he has written, along with chapters in medical textbooks. He also trains other doctors all over the world in nose surgery and other facial procedures. Dr. Kridel did a great job and I would highly recommend him. The results I received more than exceeded my expectations. Steve More

Before having my surgery, I did a LOT of research, the same research you should do. This is the doctor that fixes the bad jobs done by lesser physcians. He has written textbooks, teaches other doctors all over the world and has written a bunch of medical articles. Based on this and referrals, I chose Dr. Kridel. The entire experience was great and the result was even better than I hoped for. More

I have been struggling with sinus issues for most of my life and had grown accustomed to not being able to breathe through my nose and having multiple sinus infections, every year. Earlier this year I said enough was enough and came to Dr. Sturm. She included Dr. Anoop Ahuja, sinus specialist, and between the two of them, changed my life. I feel better than I have in a very long time and actually feel like a new person. I also had no idea you could get so much air in a single breath. I have also always hated the width of my nose and would actually delete pictures of me with my kids because of it. I had that fixed at the same time and so happy I did!!! Now we have more family pictures including mom :) More

I consulted with several doctors in Texas before deciding on Dr. Kridel for my revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty. My entire experience far exceeded my expectations. From the first consultation I felt very comfortable with the entire office staff and Dr. Kridel. They explained my case was more complex because I most likely needed grafts and have thick skin. Dr. Kridel was the most expensive doctor I consulted with and it was worth every penny! My results are better than the projected image he showed me and I look and feel better than I ever have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. More

I had rhinoplasty done by another surgeon. I was not happy with results, he left a bump in my nose. I came to Dr. Kridel. Him and his staff were excellent. I do not have words to describe how great everyone is. Dr. Kridel did the revision rhinoplasty and it looked PERFECT, but 2 weeks after my surgery I had an accident and broke my nose.

I came in for a chin augmentation and found Dr. Sturm to be amazing and realistic about what my results would be. I went in thinking I was going to have a 2 hour surgery but it turned into 4, not for complications, but because she wanted it to be perfect. I appreciated that so much. There was minimal pain afterward and I didn’t even have to take the pain meds prescribed. Post op was a breeze. I couldn’t be happier with the experience and results. I would recommend to everyone.

Simply stunned. I could not be any more pleased with the results and the entire process and experience I had getting a revision rhinoplasty / septoplasty with Dr. Kridel. This man is a perfectionist. His entire staff, including Dr. Burstein and Linda in particular, were all consummate professionals, genuine, helpful, and fun to be around. Dr. Kridel has clearly set a standard in the office that exudes excellence. This man spent SIX HOURS on my nose! He used to build model airplanes as a child, and he has taken that love for building beautiful model planes and applied it to the middle of the human face. He now builds model noses. And I can assure you, the results have me grinning! The symmetry, the size and proportions for my face, the retainment of my original look as I had requested, his ability to listen to my input, my ability to breathe through the nose again -- all beyond my expectations. I will never complain for paying a lot for this surgery. I got more than what I paid for. In fact, I got an early Christmas gift this year from Dr. Kridel -- a beautiful, model nose that has me flying high! More

A deviated septum since childhood prevented me from breathing through my nose and caused me to be a mouth-breather. I consulted with Dr. Kridel about a septoplasty and a rhinoplasty to straighten my nose. I had chickened out of theses surgeries twice before in my life, but after meeting with Dr. Kridel I concluded I could trust him both medically and esthetically. I was right!

When it comes to facial surgery, due diligence is a must! Dr. Kridel’s name was recognized as the best in Houston. After further investigation, I realized Dr. Sturm was trained by him and thus invited to join his practice.

I always had a big nose. I would get teased at school, by people just “making a joke,” but it made me extremely unconfident. I googled, went to doctors, then found Dr. Kridel.

Everyone was nice. I felt welcomed the minute I stepped in the office. Their build-up towards the surgery was simple. The after surgery part was painless, so they weren’t lying about that like many doctors do. They were courteous after the surgery, and the overall experience was a good one. Dr. Sturm did a CO2 to my face and neck. The procedure was not painful at all. It was more of a nuisance because of all the ointments you need to apply to area to keep moist for healing purposes. The healing took about 2 weeks. Dr. Sturm is a very kind, gentle, and caring Doctor. She listens to your needs and delivers. She is truly the BEST!!! Dr. Sturm’s staff – you can’t find any better. They spent hours with me going over the procedures, the care after the procedure, the cost and time involved in each procedure. They are warm and kind, loving group of ladies. I’m grateful to have each and every one of them. More

Once I passed age 50, I noticed that I had sagging upper eyelids. I had to pull one eyelid down just to apply eye makeup. I began to really notice it in photos; my once-beautiful eyes were hidden by the extra skin, and I became self-conscious. However, I read horror stories of eyelid surgeries, and I began to notice what, to me, were terrible results in others. So I put it on hold. In researching Dr. Sturm, I had a consultation and felt completely at ease, as every staff member was so professional and really took their time. The surgery itself, and the recovery, was a breeze. Literally no pain, very minimal bruising, and healing process was extremely smooth. The office runs efficiently, professionally, and makes you feel like a valued patient. More

I’ve always hated my profile and the way I look in pictures, so I decided to get a rhinoplasty to fix the bump and large tip of my nose. Dr. Sturm also showed me how a chin implant would improve my profile, so I ended up getting both procedures at the same time. The surgery was a breeze and recovery was smooth—I was uncomfortable for the first couple days but never experienced any pain. Now, four months later, I couldn’t be happier that I decided to take the plunge. I love being in photos now and my self-confidence has improved so much. On top of that, it’s also easier to breathe!

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 broke my nose as a teenager in a sports injury and did not realize how much it had affected my breathing until decades later. I went to see Dr. Kridel at the recommendation of another physician and could not be more pleased with the results. Functionally, I can once again breathe through my nose. Aesthetically, I have a gorgeous, natural looking nose for my face. Dr. Kridel also managed to virtually erase a scar from the middle of my face -- for years, no one said that was possible, but Dr. Kridel made it happen. Dr. Kridel is a most knowledgeable physician, a masterful surgeon, and a very warm, kind human being. His entire staff is equally warm and friendly and deliver top-notch care to their patients.

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

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

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

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

I am much more at ease with my appearance. I also think that I can breathe better. I expected the recovery period to be far worse than it actually was. There was no pain and very little downtime after my surgery, which pleasantly surprised me. 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

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

Dr. Kridel performed a face lift on me in May 2009. I had no bruising, minimal swelling and was back to work in 5 days. 7 months later I have been told by collegues that this is the best face lift they have ever seen, my brothers in Spokane want to know if I am ever going to age and my son has yet to comment on or notice any changes in my appearance. I would not let anyone other than Dr. Kridel touch my face More

A few years after I had my first rhinoplasty (by another PS in the Houston area), the tip of my nose began turning to the side. I didn't do my homework and I returned to my first PS and had him fix it. BIG MISTAKE! Not only did he mess up the appearance of my tip, but he also messed up the airflow through one nostril. I was so upset! I had to wait a full year while the swelling subsided to have it fixed. Over that year, I did some indepth studying up on rhinoplasty and REVISION rhinoplasty (yes there is a big difference!) I learned that I should have looked for a FACIAL plastic surgeon as opposed to a general plastic surgeon. I also learned that I should have found a surgeon who speciialized in REVISION nose surgery. THANK GOODNESS I FOUND DR. KRIDEL!!!! He not only fixed the appearance of my nose, he also fixed the breathing. I am so happy!!! It is still a little swollen (2 months out), but even swollen it is better than how it looked prior. I can't wait to see it 1 year out. More

50+ Female Ready for Revision Rhinoplasty - Houston, TX - I have started to work on my facial rejuvenation bucket list now that I am over 50 (by a few years). I have done botox and fillers, but no surgery. What was bothering me most was my nose. Had surgery many a moon ago and did not like the results. Didn't think it could be fixed, but finally decided to look into seeing if anyone could fix it. I went to 3 docs, 2 in Houston and 1 in Dallas who are supposed to be the best nose docs based on research I did or recommendations from friends. All 3 had written research papers on revision noses. After seeing all 3, I decided on Dr. Kridel in Houston. Most thorough consultation, great staff and was realistic about what could and could not be done,
