I always wanted a more feminine look on my face, with that being said each time I seen the small bump on my nose I knew until then I'll be fully comfortable proceeding with my modeling journey . Quick week and a half recovery, never been more confident . I strongly recommend him to anyone who has a hard time trusting any doctor to preform plastic or cosmetic surgery on their face . more
I'm already 2 and a half weeks post op but wanted to share my journey to help others decide on a doctor and if they really want to get this procedure done. email me or reply and ill be glad to answer any questions. I'm still in the very beginning stages of healing . I'm going to start off with my old nose and the day of the surgery to post op photos with my cast on to how i look now 2.5... more
My journey started a few weeks ago, finally deciding to get work done on my nose. After my consultation with Dr. Obeng, we decided to proceed with Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty. My disclaimer: I really need to improve my sleep pattern, by getting a blockage removed. I don't have an issue with my nose, but since the process is so invasive, might as well improve upon my natural handsomeness... more
I found patients sharing their experiences on RealSelf very helpful when considering my surgery and getting an idea of what recovery would be like, so I want to return the favor and share my experience.I am 28 years old and have been waiting about 6 years to change my nose. It looks hawkish when I smile (the tip droops) and there is a deviated septum with breathing problems. I took most of... more
Everything came out wonderful! my nose looks so natural.
No one can tell that I got my nose done. My recovery was excellent, Procedure was almost pain free, I felt like I had a bad head cold, but the discomfort was gone with in a couple days.
I had almost no bruising and was back to work in less than a week.
I'm very happy with my results
Thank You more
I researched for 3 years before having surgery. I found Dr. G from all his wonderful Realself reviews. I'm so happy I made the right choice!!! I couldn't have found a better surgeon. He is kind, caring, humble, and very very skilled! He is absolutely wonderful and my experience couldn't have been better.
I hadn't met him until the night before surgery and I literally walked out of my... more
"Going the extra mile" does not even begin to describe Dr. Kotler; he is a truly gift surgeon and all-around wonderful person. I do not even have words to express how unbelievable he is and how he has changed my life - not just with the surgery, but with the care and concern that he genuinely showed to me and my family.
But let's start at the beginning: I was a little apprehensive about... more
Hey Real self users!
I have finally gotten the courage to post about my journey. Reading everyone's stories on here have helped me tremendously, so I've decided to start posting!
I have been insecure about my nose for almost 10 years (since I was 12). I never knew what to do about it when I was younger so I just pushed the thought to the back of my mind.
I started modeling after high school... more
I've been thinking about getting a nose job for years, and in January I decided 2015 is the year to finally do it! After a lot of searching on the internet, I decided to set up a consult with Dr. Grigoryants. When I called to set up an appointment, I found he was booked 4 months out! (I took that as a good sign). :)
Fast forward 4 months, and the day for my consult is almost... more
Few months ago I finally had my rhinoplasty surgery performed by Dr. Anastasatos. I was always self-conscious about my very wide and droopy nose. After seeing numerous plastic surgeons for consultations I never felt comfortable enough to proceed with them, until I met with Dr. Anastasatos. Let me just say that I couldn’t be happier with trusting him to do the surgery and with my results. I... more
I wasn't going to write a review initially because I wanted to keep my rhinoplasty as secret as possible. However, I have been recently seeing a few bad reviews for Ghavami and it really breaks my heart, because he's a great surgeon and I think a lot of the people posting on here really have issues with the staff or just have unrealistic expectations. I had gone to see a few doctors before... more
I had my consultation with Dr. Ghavami on Skype because I live in New York and couldn’t fly to LA to see him in person but let me tell you this, none of the plastic surgeons in New York were able to reassure me and win me over the way that Dr. Ghavami did. He thoroughly explained to me what he was going to do and also pointed out my deviated septum and enlarged turbinates before I even got... more
Like many of you, I've disliked my nose for quite some time. It's been a reoccurring issue for me since the age of seventeen and now, at the age of 23, I've finally decided to start saving and do something pro-active about it. RealSelf has been a big help to me in terms of researching different doctors and other's experiences and I have decided that I would like to book Vladimir Grigoryants,... more
Just got home from surgery & writing this because what's helped me the most in my journey has been reading other people's experiences!
Waiting time was long. They gave me something for anxiety & I don't think it helped very much because i became extremely stressed about the procedure. The last thing I remember was thinking about all the money I spent and trouble I went through to do this. I... more
I'm having my nose done soon so I thought I should stop procrastinating and get this profile up already. Reading the reviews and stories of others has helped me beyond belief so I wanted to take the time to share my experience in the hopes that it may help someone out there as well.
So far I've had the initial consultation and the pre-op(my fees have been paid) with Dr G. I... more
Hi, everyone! :)
I've been on RealSelf for months just reading reviews/experiences and following my dream surgeon (Dr. Grigoryants) and figured I should finally start my journey on here as well. So here it goes!
I've wanted to get rhinoplasty for as long as I can remember. I would always Google before and after pictures in my spare time to see all the transformations and then do this thing in... more
I had a finesse rhinoplasty done a few years ago just to shave a bump on my nose, after procedure I realized I should of also had work done to my tip, at the time I was scared because I didn't want to have a overly fake looking nose or a pig nose, as I get older I notice my tip drooping more. It's very minor but it bothers me so I had a oune consult with Dr. Motykie, I am happy with his before... more
Hi all! So I've been reading all of your reviews and finally decided to pull the trigger and schedule my rhinoplasty. I'm going with Dr.Grigoryants in June and I'm very excited/nervous. I've hated my nose since childhood, especially my profile. I got married in October and was embarrassed of half of our wedding photos because of my nose. I've heard and seen great things from this doctor so... more
Dr Pearson is the most amazing medical professional I have ever met. Not only is he professional and a true artist, but he is incredibly caring, gentle and patient. I had Rhinoplasty surgery and a chin implant done by Dr. Pearson about a year ago and the outcome is way beyond my expectations. I wish I had done it earlier and not waited for so many years!! Throughout the entire process Dr... more
I hate to write a bad review about anybody, but I want to tell everyone that Dr. Kanodia did my primary and I honestly didn't know how bad it was until a new surgeon tried to repair it. It was collapsed and he had left only 2 mm of cartilage in my nose. He didn't perform a septoplasty although i paid for one. His office avoided my calls when I had an issue. Etc. Finally I hired an expert to... more
