Rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a nose job) is a surgical procedure that reshapes or resizes the nose. It’s performed for a variety of reasons, including a visible bump on the nasal bridge, a nasal tip that’s droopy or enlarged, a nose that is off-center or crooked, or a previous injury that’s made the nose asymmetrical. LEARN MORE ›

I had a typical Italian nose (deviated septum and a large dorsal hump.) Everyone in my family has the same nose with a varied degree of the size of their dorsal hump. I was always told to accept myself and I'm so beautiful. Count your blessings! Ever since an angry jealous girl made a terrible... READ MORE

I have been self-conscious of my nose since I was a pre-teen. Finally decided to have the bump removed. Also going to have a Septoplasy and sinus work (Turbinates). Procedure is scheduled for August 17th. Getting nervous about recovery but reading the stories on here really help! Completed... READ MORE

Very excited to be having my Rhinoplasty done on Monday, September 28th with Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jill Hessler in Palo Alto. Going in for my prep next week, will update more details then. I have been thinking about a rhinoplasty for years now, and after reading all the Realself... READ MORE

It's day 4 post op for me right now and so far I'm satisfied with how my body has been recovering. Really I was happy right away when I looked at myself hours after my rhinoplasty. I had braced myself to look like any number of the photos I've seen countless others post. I did quite a bit of... READ MORE

First of all, I am sorry that my story cannot be as inspiring as others here on RealSelf. However, I am obligated to be brutally honest with you wanderers of the Internet. I will tell the whole truth, both the good and the extraordinarily bad. (In advance, prepare for a melodramatic... READ MORE

I was fortunate to have a septo-rhinoplasty performed by the very talented Kristina Zakhary which I wanted done for the majority of my life since I was about 13 or 14 years old (I just turned 27). My entire life I've had an extremely crooked nose which I resented the appearance of but it also... READ MORE

My nose was not feminine at all. It was over projected and long with a straight-ish bridge. It would have probably been a great nose .... if I was a guy! My nostrils were too large and I had a very slight hanging columella. There wasn't much about my big potato of a nose I did like. I made a 12... READ MORE

I’ve been searching this website for a couple months now and decided to start sharing my own experience. I am a 33 year old mom of a 5 year old and a 2 year old. I became self conscious about my nose starting in about 5th grade when I got my first “witch nose” comment. The level of self... READ MORE

Hi there, I am a 30 year old female living in Australia. It has never been a matter of if but more so when regarding rhinoplasty for myself. I'm hoping my review will be able to help others as I have found so many reviews on this website so helpful. I have my fathers nose, growing up I was a... READ MORE

My cast came off today, let me start of my saying my nose was big I had a little bump looking from the side that always bothered me anyways today the cast came off after five days of horrible Sleepless nights I feel a little better know but that is the least of my worries. When he took my cast... READ MORE

I really never noticed my nose much growing up. I wasn't the kid that got teased nor did anyone really understand WHY I needed it. But for my sake, I noticed I was hiding my nose in photos with my girls and hated the profile in almost every photo. I finally decided to do something about. Booked... READ MORE

So far so good. Hoping for a cancellation so I can have the surgery done in December or January! Will be traveling from out of town, more nervous about the logistics than the actual surgery! Would love to hear about others experiences/ and or travel advice. May have to do this alone, but I hope... READ MORE

I'm currently a senior in college who commutes to campus with a part time job Monday through Friday. I have been reading reviews for months and seeing before and after pictures. Dr. G's have been the best by far especially because they show all angles. Ever since I was young I've always disliked... READ MORE

Wow, what a journey it's been and I haven't even started the hard part yet! Or maybe I have. Deciding to even book a consultation took over ten years. Even after I had my appointment, I kept saying, "It's just for fun. To rule it out". But let me tell you, once I got that ball rolling, nothing,... READ MORE

I've given up thinking about it & researching it. I've taken the plunge & decided to go for it. Ever since I was in high school I've hated the sight of my nose with a passion. It has got me down so much & Im done posing in pictures in certain ways to 'hide' the flaws on my face. After all it the... READ MORE

Like many others as I grew older, I became very aware of my ethnic nose. Mainly because the older I got (I am 49), the wider and more bulbous it seemed to become. It was way too prominent a feature on my face. I would joke about having my nose made tiny with my husband. Well, two weeks ago, I... READ MORE

So I have always hated my nose growing up and it always has been something that bothered me. So after months of me telling my mom we decided to do something about it. I researched many plastic surgeons and I finally found the one for me. His name is Dr. John Bitner and he is amazing. I am so... READ MORE

So far Dr. Brennan and his staff has been absolutely perfect! I'll get into that later.... My procedure is less than a week away. I'm feeling nervous, but mostly excited. I'm nervous because I'm not sure what it will be like looking in the mirror and seeing someone different than I'm used to... READ MORE

Like lots of reviews on here, I've always hated my nose. In profile it's extremely large, bumpy and masculine. Front on it's actually not too bad (it wouldn't get any prizes though) just lacking in definition. I've dealt with this my whole life by just avoiding ever looking at myself in profile.... READ MORE
