"Thank you Dr. Terkonda! I went in for a chin implant because I inherited my mothers weak chin. Dr. Terkonda and I had a good discussion about the symmetry of my face specifically that I have a round face and the result I was looking for was a more angular masculine jaw line. He explained the difference between a chin implant and genioplasty.He explained how genioplasty would actually pull the muscles attached to the bone in my chin forward and give my face a slightly more angular look. Because of my round face he also performed lipo under my chin and buccal fat removal. It’s been 6 weeks and I am extremely pleased with the results. The recovery was just as he explained, I was out of work only a couple of days and the majority of the swelling was gone in 10 days."- R. / Healthgrades / Jun 18, 2021

"Doctor Terkonda was absolutely excellent in his diagnosis, treatment options explanation, and surgery. Where as I could not breath before because the side of my nose had been crushed from an assault, I can breath well now! Insurance I used at the time was Blue Cross.Dr Terkonda has a great bedside manner, and really cared about me and my outcome. His surgical skills were awesome performing a septoplasty, turbinate reductions, in addition to other items in the same visit. Make sure to consult with this doctor if you need help with your nose and sinuses for breathing, have suffered traumatic injury, or would like cosmetic surgery. The doctor did top-notch care and work from beginning to end."- A. / Healthgrades / May 03, 2021
