Im 24 and have been wanting to alter my nose since I was 12. After I was referred to Dr. Ghavami and had my consult I decided to just go for it. Turns out there was actual medical issues with my nose which makes my breathing awful. I thought everyone just breathed that way. So I got squeezed in a week later because of a cancelation. Ghavami knows his way around a nose thats for sure! He came... more

Dr. Haworth suggested for me to get my nose done and I think I'm finally ready. He's always been so kind and his galleries are amazing! I'm so excited!! I originally wanted work on my chin but he was able to show me that my nose was what would improve the overall look of my face. I can't believe I've been staring at this problem on my face and never realized it was something else. He's such a... more
The after photos were taken 5 months after the surgery. There is some asymmetry which is obvious when I tilt my head down a little and you look at me straight on, and I do not really like the shape of the nasal dorsum. I, for some reason, assumed it would be made slightly scooped because many patients in the gallery have slightly scooped bridges in the after photos. I guess I should have made... more
I've always disliked my nose. I am of mixed ethnicities (French, Spaniard , and Black). I have a good profile but week tip definition and wide bones. I am looking for a natural change.
Right now my sights are set to Dr Grigoryants, although i feel like he specialist in just removing dorsal humps, his results are great! more
I had rhinoplasty with dr. G exactly 15 days ago. I think he did an amazing job aesthetically, it looks natural and fits my face, but as my swelling has gone down I've noticed some things that are concerning me. I've posted pictures to show the areas of my nose that are worrying me in hopes that you guys can give me some advice, I'm not sure if this is the normal healing process and I'm just... more
After 31 years of disliking my nose, I began my journey to finally getting it fixed. I spent months doing research online, nervously searching the internet for every answer to every question that crossed my mind, trying to find the right surgeon, weighing the risks in my head and of course playing out the worst case scenarios over and over again until I lost sleep. After all, this was to be a... more
First, I just want to thank everyone for the reviews. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found Real Self, this board has been so helpful in my decision-making process and also let me to Dr. Grigoryants.
I have a very similar story to many of you -- I've hated my nose for more than 10 years now and even went to see a plastic surgeon about rhinoplasty when I was 16 years... more
I have been self-conscious of my nose since the 7th grade. Most of the time I don't think about it. But when I see candid photos, I'm not happy with it. Sometimes I'm just fine with it, and other times, my niece or nephew will genuinely ask why my nose is so big! About 2 years ago I seriously considered getting rhinoplasty. I have looked at different surgeon's websites, and only one has stuck... more
Hello everyone, id like to start off by saying that this is the hardest decision ive ever had to make. Im 20 years old and have disliked my profile ever since I was 13. A few months ago I decided I wanted the procedure done(before my 21st in november). im honestly tired of feeling insecure, im tired of hiding my profile from my boyfriend of 5 years, I dont even let him take pictures of me(yes... more
Poorly defined tip, curves to the side, hump still present and looks droopy. Promised to fix my deviated septum, but made it worse. I need revision surgery to fix this, but I'm too scared to do it from my bad experience from this "doctor". I had written my reviews on another website but it got deleted with various other reviews. He has contacted me from my other review and mentioned he would... more
6 years ago I broke my noes and made the mistake of going to a local ENT to get it fixed. A year after the surgery my breathing got worse, eventually the procedure affected my appearance as my nose began shrinking and looked lopsided due to the left side essentially "caving in". This year I had enough, I was nervous about getting it fixed but desperately wanted to breathe again! I did some... more
I've always wanted to get my nose done, but never had the courage. Recently, I had a breast augmentation done, which sparked my initial insecurity of my nose.I have decided to go with Dr. G. I had a consultation with Dr. G June 19th everything went great! I brought my Ipad with pictures of noses I liked, he looked at each and every nose while providing feedback on what was best for me. Before... more
After years of thinking about rhinoplasty and detesting my nose, I'm finally out of school and making a salary that has allowed me to save up for the procedure. I've read so many reviews on realself and elsewhere, and I've decided that I definitely want to go with Dr. Grigoryants. When I initially had my email consultation with him (I'm out of state), I was told that he wasn't scheduling... more
Today I went in to see Dr. Grigoryants for the second time. Walked in, filled out some more paperwork, had a "photoshoot" with Dr. G (before photos, did you all do that as well?), chatted a bit, then gave my full payment. I'm so excited for my procedure at the end of this month! No more being super insecure about my nose! Will keep you all updated ;)
Hey guys! So it's been exactly one week... more
*I had been doing on and off rhinoplasty research for the past four years. I don't remember noticing the hump on my nose when I was in high school or at least it bothering me to the point where I would beg people to delete pictures where I, upon seeing them and seeing my "bad angle," would immediately feel TERRIBLE and the ugliest in the group. So terrible that I became fixated on my nose.... more
The reason I didn't want to have rhinoplasty in the past was due to the dreaded nasal packing. The thought of not being able to breathe, especially during eating was not appealing as well as the dry tongue from mouth breathing all day long, for several days, no thank you. I was lucky enough to find a Beverly Hills surgeon who invented a nasal airway that completely avoids this problem. Once... more
I have surgery scheduled with Dr. Grigoryants next week and am getting nervous. Just wondering if anyone can share their experience with me to help calm my nerves :). I am Having rhinoplasty and another additional surgery. I mostly read wonderful things on dr G., but recently there are some damming reviews on him that are shaking my confidence :/. Any input would be helpful.
I am 20 days... more
Ive been wanting a nose job for more then 10 years, and now I'm finally having it done. My surgery is scheduled in two day, and I am on a low-sodium to none diet, I am also eating 2 servings a day of papaya or pineapple, as I have read this will help with bruising. As for the procedure i would like the tip of my nose to look more refine, and bringing down the dorsal hump. I will post pictures... more
