Hi realselfers! For the last few years, I've been dissatisfied with the appearance of my nose. As an African, my nose is characterized by a wide alar base, flared nostrils, a thick skin, and lack of a defined bridge, all of which I'd like to improve upon through surgery. Living in western Canada, there aren't many surgeons here who work on many ethnic patients - making my search for a suitable... 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 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 had a pointy hooked nose and felt it made me look less feminine, so I went looking for a surgeon on a plastic surgery forum and was pointed to Dr. Creasman. I decided to get my nose and breasts done. Dr. Creasman is an amazing artist and he took excellent care of me and made me feel at ease. My nose and boobs looked great! Unfortunately a few months afterward my nose suffered a trauma and... 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
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
Hello everyone--I had my rhinoplasty done along with a turbinate reduction because of my deviated septum on the 25th of June (so it's been 11 days). The reason I went along with this was to have the hump on my nose smoothed out and cause I just felt my nose was crooked from the front. My surgeon did put a cartilage graft to even out the nose--but I still feel it is crooked from the front... 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
It had always been a dream of mine to have my nose done since second grade, when I broke it. Because I had a deviated septum, one of my nostrils air flow was blocked 80%. During the healing week right after the procedure, I had second guessed if this was the right decision.
I now know that this was the best decision I could have made. It has truly changed my life and I could not have... more
I researched my butt off and met with 3 other surgeons before Dr. Mehta and instantly felt relieved after our consolation and very excited. He understood my dislikes and together we put together a surgical plan! I just got my splint off and couldnt be happier! My nose is exact to the per-operative images we decided on. Dr. Mehta is so gifted, smart, caring. He's always been there to answer any... more
So I just finished playing college basketball this year. My coach broke it the last week of practice back in march and I am finally getting the surgery in two weeks. I have actually had a procedure done 3 years ago when i broke it also playing basketball but they just straightened it back up. This time the doctor told me that he could fix it however I want it since I am done playing basketball... more
I asked for more tip definition, narrowing, and smaller nostrils
after rhinoplasty, my nose looked shorter and my nostrils were cut uneven and nose was upturned.
huge botch job. He didn't seem to have real concern..blamed it on the way I healed.
If you go to his website, there are tons of fake 5 start Yelp reviews. If you go to the actual Yelp website, you will see that most of... more
