I thought Dr Fanous could create a smaller nose which he did once the cast came off; but, inevitably post op I ended up with scar tissue and a polly beak deformity. He did not address my concerns. Ended up giving kenalog 40 dose so strong that I have permanent dents years later & a bulbous tip. Not a great combination! more
I wanted a nose that would be closer to my face, take out the bump and have a smaller tip.
I had a great consultation with Dr. Gilardino in Montreal. He is very honest and has discouraged me to do other surgeries. He said he would lift the tip of my nose, I was unsure about it and it does change me a lot because I'm not use to see inside my nose from my front profile. You have to be ready for... more
18 November 2014 : I visited Dr Schwarz office located in Westmount Montreal before my procedure. I had previously read his reviews online, both negative and positive. With rhinoplasty , Dr Schwarz had more negative than positive reviews but I still decided to go for a visit and look at the before after pictures of his clients. When I entered, the secretary was really nice to me. The office... more
Reading the reviews has helped me alot for going through the first step of getting a rhinoplasty.
I am currently searching for a facial plastic surgeon in Montreal who specialise in rhinoplasty. I'm thinking Dr. Samaha.
If anybody has some recommendations i will be glad to know :) more
I am a 38 year old mother of 2 beautiful kids who has been wanting a rhinoplasty for almost 20 years - what a waste of my time & energy. It was my husband's support and encouragement that finally gave me the courage to consult for a rhinoplasty. After seeing 2 general plastic surgeons who inspired little confidence, I was so happy that I found Dr. Samaha who specializes only in plastic surgery... more
I was in serious need of a nose job and had a rhinoplasty done by Dr Fanous. The result was outstanding. It honestly changed my life. This is what i learned that can hopefully help the readers - so many rhinoplasty surgeons claim to be the most talented, the best way to judge is to ask to see before and after pictures. However, the "after" pictures have to be at least 6 months after the... more
I was looking forward for rhinoplasty, had a consultation. The email from dr. office said that the cost for both tip and bridge (open) surgery will be $6000+taxes. But then the doctor said it will be $8000 or more. He seems so money minded, wasnt much concerned about explaining the details of surgey and other concerns at the consultation. And above all was 30-40 min late:(.
Please let me... more
My Story… My name is Louis and I had Rhinoplasty in January 2013. That is the day my life changed forever. Let me start from the beginning. Since my late teens, I had always wanted to have a nose job to reduce the size of my hump. I wanted a straight nose. It wasn’t a big deal in my life… just something I wanted to do. Well, at the age of 34, I decided to take the plunge and get... more
Hi! I am so thankfull for your reviews. I'm 22 and i've hated my nose for years. I tried to love myself the way i am for years but its not working. I go out and in of depression. My family is against it but i am just not happy the way i am. I've been thinking more seriously about surgery lately. Its my life and i would like to be myself and have a good selfesteem. I dont want to hold back... more
I've been looking forward to my surgery date of July 2nd, then the doctor's office calls me to tell me one of the nurses hurt herself and they have to reschedule my surgery to the next day at an earlier time to accommodate the client's who had to be moved. Now I'm worried the doctor is going to rush through my surgery to get to the next client. I'm so worried I almost feel like cancelling even... more
I am now 9 days post-op and I am absolutely in love with my nose ! The profile is perfection, I have a lovely curve, like I asked and the tip was pushed slightly upward. However, I am quite swollen on the bridge and the tip, which my doctor told me would change over time. The problem is, I like the bridge wider than it was before surgery ! Ive always thought it was too thin and i'm scared that... more
Had a nose job done by this MD july 2012. My only regret is not finding this doctor earlier! I had a long nose with a bump, pointing downwards. Was insecure about my jose since puberty. He made it look stunning. Very natural, shorter with a nice round tip. No pain, no bruising.THANK YOU DR. LOVE IT!
Hi my name is Julie, I'm 24 years old and I've had a complex with my nose since middle school. I've finally decided to take the steps and go through with this.The only thing is...I'm also getting married 3 months after my schedules surgery... so I'm having second doubts about the time I chose to do this. I want my new nose for my wedding cause I don't want to tell myself "why didn't I just do... more
So Iv'e been wanting to get my nose fixed forever. I banged it up a lot in my early teens and it was never the same since. My brothers used to tease me all the time, I've deleted probably half my pictures because of it, and I'm very uncomfortable driving or pretty much just having my profile exposed for people to see. Ok I'm not a monster and there are some days that I feel worst about it than... more
Well, I've been wanting to fix the hump on my nose and the bulbous tip for a looong time. I feel I've let it control my life in some ways. It really takes a toll on my self esteem. This past year I've put my education on the back burner and I've been working my touchy off at an awful call center job. I've finally raised enough money to go through with it. Yay! I've done... more
I had been thinking of doing this for a while, my nose always bothered me. Now more than ever it made me very insecure..so much that i would cry about it. It just made me miserable. I don't think it was that bad, some angles my nose looked cute but the profile is what really bothered me. It was curved and big and it just did not fit with my face. I had been thinking about it (seriously)... more
Hi I had septo-Rhinoplasty 9 days ago and got the cast off today but I noticed a small hump on the bridge of my nose! and there's some bruising exactly on top of that hump!
Could it just be b/c it's swollen? It really feels hard when I touch it! And also my nostrils are uneven! :(
I hope it's gonna go away~ more
