I can't be happier with my nose! My nose was crooked and my sister used to teese me that it looked like an upside down comma. In addition, I had a deviated septum, and my left nostril was almost collapsed.
Dr. Most assured me that he can correct all this and I just had a good feeling about him. He is a professional and honest person! He said that the bone structure has to be broken and the... more
After years of disliking my nose, I knew Dr. Lay was going to be the one to operate on my nose after my successful and enjoyable experience with him when he did my upper blepharoplasty about two years ago. Furthermore, the fact that he is also an Ear Nose Throat MD made me comfortable in allowing him to correct my deviated septum and reducing my nasal turbinate for the medical portion of my... more
My name is James and, after many years of feeling self-conscious because of the hump on my nose. I went to see Dr. Korman about a Rhinoplasty. (I was referred to him by a friend who was also very pleased with his results) As soon as I walked in I was greeted by his very friendly staff. I was able to schedule an appointment and, meet with him that same week. In our first appointment, I asked a... more

When i met Dr. lay i know he is the one who can give me that natural n beautiful look because i have seen his work. Plus, he is such an ethical plastic surgeon. I am more than satisfy with the outcome!! I couldn't be any happier. He gave me such a cute nose. It... 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
Dr. Most is fantastic! He did a rhinoplasty and a deviated septum repair for me in October. I had broken my nose several times and had a huge bump on my nose and it was very crooked. I am thrilled with the results and many of my friends think the difference is amazing. Dr. Most is friendly, informative, and very good at what he does. He has excellent bed side manner and can answer all your... more
Hey everyone I just wanted to thank all of you who have shared your stories. They have all helped me with this decision of getting my nose fixed!
I'm 20 years old and I've been wanting a nose job since I was 14. I actually have a really sad journal entry dated 11/18/08 where I write about how much I hate my nose:(
This will be my first surgery and I'm already getting really nervous for it.... 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
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 had such a great experience with Dr.Mehta! He is extremely patient and through during the consolation. He was available anytime I had questions or concerns. I waited for a long time to find the fight PS and I am so happy I did! I am so pleased with the results. I cant imagine having this procedure with anyone else! I love the way my nose looks and I can finally breath! 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
Overall great. The swelling and bruising was more severe than I anticipated but once gone I am very pleased with the results. Drs. Parikh and Leiberman are terrific - very skilled surgeons. Dr. Parikh is very approachable and put my mind at ease (as much as it could be) with his confident abilities and demonstrated before and after patients. I appreciated that he was realistic about... more
If you want to work with someone who puts you at ease, is extremely competent, and a muse of his trade- work with Dr. Chiang. He exudes kindness, compassion, and genuine interest in his patients. When you are looking to have a procedure on your face, this is extremely important to put you at ease. I feel reinvigorated- like a brand new woman! Thank you, a million times thank you!!! more
Dr. Most is the man! Of all the doctors I visited, he was the most open and easiest to talk to. He made me feel like he understood what kinds of changes I wanted, and more importantly, what I did not want. Every day I look at my nose and am very happy I took the time to find Dr. Most. I highly recommend taking the time to go and see him. 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
