It's March 2nd and I already have 2 consultations this month to find the right Doctor. I'm just worries and have so many questions to ask. I have been told that breathing problems can be a permanent side effect. Anyways, one appointment is with the same doctor that did my breast augmentation. I will definitely have a date by April. I have uploaded photos to get an idea of what I'm looking... more
I am late writing this review. I was going to document the beginning of my journey earlier but I decided to wait until the procedure was done so I wouldn’t be thinking about the outcome and everything that comes with surgery too much.
Anyway with that said I am 19 years old and I have wanted a new nose for years. I did try to embrace my old nose and talk myself into not having it fixed but... more
Getting this surgery done for myself is something I thought long and hard about and saw a couple surgeons before taking the plunge with Dr.Mehta. My nose was my biggest complex though some would say otherwise to my issue with it, its something I needed and wanted to make the decision on. I did my research on different doctors in the San Francisco area and stopped when I came across Dr.Mehta... more
I had always disliked how pointy my nose was from the side, but as I aged it was getting more bulbous in front too. At 39, I decided it was now or never. After 4 consults, I chose a local Rhino specialist, who is highly regarded. All of the Dr's said how I was an ideal candidate, straight forward case, etc., including mine. My goals were a better profile, smaller tip and overall smaller... more
I’m a female who, throughout my childhood and teen years, was always very self-conscious about my nose. Nearly everything was wrong with it: I had a deviated septum which caused it be asymmetrical, a noticeable dorsal hump, and a drooping nasal tip. After thinking about getting a rhinoplasty for years, I finally decided to go under the knife when I was 19. I looked up surgeons online in the... more
So just like everyone else, I was never much of a fan of my nose. I never noticed it much until I got into jr. high and always thought I was pretty, but that my nose kinda killed it for the rest of my face (lol). Thankfully, I didn't go through much teasing but I have always been very self-aware and conscious of it. Getting a rhinoplasty was always in the back of my mind but it wasn't until... more
I had open rhinoplasty 5 months ago and my tip is still huge feels bigger than before. I've had two steroid shots yet really scared my nose will not change much. Please help! My doctor said it's still early stages and will continue to change. I don't want to go through this again. Btw he is double board certified. more
I had been thinking about getting Rhinoplasty done for about two years, and decided to take the plunge this summer. Dr Behmand was the second doctor I had a consultation with and I felt comfortable with him right away. He explained the procedure very thoroughly and answered any questions I had. After the consultation I knew he was the doctor for me, so I went ahead and booked my... more
I am a male in my mid twenties, who had been considering rhinoplasty for quite some time. My nose always had a droopy tip, a crooked nasal bone, and a hump that gave it a very unattractive appearance --that resembled a hook. In addition, I also had a deviated septum.
Prior to moving forward with Dr. Mehta, I have had the opportunity to attend several consultations with different doctors. Dr.... more
I had my rhinoplasty done with Dr. Most almost 1.5 months ago, and I can't be more pleased with the results.
I had thought about getting a rhinoplasty for a few years. In my opinion, my nose was slightly too bulbous for the rest of my face, and it had a slight hump. It wasn't ugly but I felt it distracted from my eyes and my face as a whole. So I went on several consultations with plastic... more
I'm 24 now, but ever since I was 6 years old and I first saw my side profile in a mirror I have hated the way my nose looks. I think about it whenever I meet someone new - I’m thinking that all they see is a giant talking nose, which I know is ridiculous. I know it sounds totally obsessive, self-indulgent and vain, but it does and always has kept me from being happy. Ever since I can... more
I have trouble breathing and hate my nose at the same time, ever since I was a teenager. My parents and siblings have very different noses than I, and it makes me very self conscious. My main problem is the flaring of my nostrils and the almost extreme notching.
1st DR consultation:
I went to a PS and towards the end of the second consultation he was unsure he would be able to fix the... more
So, I decided to join this community to share my upcoming rhinoplasty experience. I broke my nose in 2001, and didn't have it properly set at the time. I have been living with a huge (in my opinion), crooked downward-sloping nose ever since. Finally decided to get it fixed. I'm excited about my soon-to-be new look, but nervous (like most people) about the general anaesthesia experience and... more
I have my rhinoplasty/septoplasty scheduled for next year. Honestly, it has been torture waiting to have the procedure just because of the excitement but I think that booking it so far out (completely my choice) has forced me to think about any refinements I want to make in the choices that the doctor and I already discussed. Booking it so far out has also given me time to let the reality of... more
I've wanted a rhinoplasty since I was a child. However, I've thus far been in school (to get my bachelor's, and then my doctorate)- as a huge proponent of delayed gratification, I chose to wait until all my schooling was done to get my "dream" procedure.
I've been looking into the rhinoplasty procedure and consulting with doctors for about one year now. I debated going down to LA for a doctor... more
I have waited over 10 years to do this procedure and have had problems breathing and had a small bump and a slight deviation. I have always been afraid of the horror stories with Rhino/Septo surgery. Dr. Commons was the last doctor I saw out of 8 or so. I am so glad I did my homework with all the doctors. Dr. Commons main concern was your health, recovery, and downtime. He did what was... more
Well It all started because I began having breathing and sleeping problems a few years ago. However more recently it began to get worst. Friends would tell me that I was falling asleep during conversations and while out at dinner, then would wake up a few moments later not really recalling ever dozing off. I even dozed off momentarily during my college graduation ceremonie (I have pictures to... more
So here's the thing: I wrote out what I thought was a great review for Dr. Most on Yelp. But darn Yelp kept putting me in the filtered section with about 30 other people which annoyed me so much I just deleted the whole thing and decided to write a review for my nose job here. If you want to see a bunch of reviews (Which are all 5 stars btw) for this doctor, go to Yelp, type in Sam Most Md and... more
I've been lurking here for months, reading reviews and posting the very occasional comment but I have read and appreciated each and every review. Since I got so much out of it I felt I should share my experience as well.
I have had a big, hooked nose since highschool. Other than my family I haven't really been made fun of for it (nice family, huh?) but I'm sure that aside from my height... more
I will try to update with pics as soon as possible but right now it is hard for me to take one without crying. I had my procedure a few weeks ago with a double board certified ENT/ Facial cosmetic surgeon. I decided on him after meeting with two other cosmetic surgeons. I had an open septoplasty/ turbinate reduction/ rhinoplasty with cartilage graft. My nose had been broken once before. My... more
