I thought I was going to a great Dr. To find out I entered a nightmare. They are over booking surgeries and misrepresenting fees associated with surgery...I was booked for surgery for a set time and the Dr. took 10hrs on a 4hr surgery the first time, a year later charged me more than the first surgery and booked 1 to two hours for the second surgery and took five hours... They are trying to... more
I have always disliked the "bump" in my nose but I still wanted to look like me. I didn't want to look like I had plastic surgery either. Doctor recommended a chin implant as well to "balance out the face." The procedure itself was easy, and recovery was not painful but I did have quite a bit of swelling on my chin. One of my nerves around my mouth must've been agitated too because my mouth... more
Since I was a teenager I always felt extremely self conscious about my nose. The dorsal hump was too big, the tip was too wide and bulbous, and I really disliked how my nose gravitated noticeably to the left side of my face. Dr. Weber addressed all my complaints and from there I decided to have the surgery.
I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Weber, Camille and Cory... more
Well, here it goes. I am having surgery in about a month, reading experiences on here has been so invaluable! A big thanks to everyone who has shared the details, big and small. I came across this site searching "what to expect after surgery," with really nothing actually useful until I wound up here.
My nose has broken multiple times, starting when I was 14. I played soccer, I mountain bike,... more
Open rhinoplasty done 12/18. I have hated my nose since I can remember and went through high school receiving terrible comments from people and never felt beautiful. The rhinoplasty was close to 5 hours and the recovery was pretty uncomfortable at times but I could not be more satisfied with my results. This procedure has completely changed me. Feel free to ask any questions! more
I was hesitant to get plastic surgery, and indeed had put off getting my deviated septum fixed due to a previous doctor who suggested that was my goal. However, when I went to a good ENT, he explained it was medically necessary, and described the deviated septum surgery to me. Once I realized I was going to be put under anesthesia in a serious procedure either way, I took the weekend and... more
I had a large bump in the middle of my nose that I had always hated. My nose also stuck out too far. I had wanted to have rhinoplasty ever since I was 13. For my 18th birthday my mom said we could get it done. After meeting with a couple doctors, we both felt most comfortable with Dr. Weber. During the consultation we went over exactly what I wanted and what the procedure would be like. From... more
I've wanted Rhinoplasty for as long as I can remember. I have read everybody's posts on this website who have had or are thinking about Rhinoplasty and have learned a lot and they answered a lot of my questions. So I wanted to post my experience and progress as it goes a long. I had it done on Friday December 19th.
Bruises and swelling still there but feeling good.
I get to take my... more
I had been thinking about getting Rhinoplasty for a long time, finally I decided to take the leap. It was very expensive, but in my opinion worth it. I was very scared before the procedure and honestly after the procedure I wanted to cry. I had just spent so much money and wasn't completely in love with my nose. Rhinoplasty is a game of patience...I'm about 6 weeks out now and while it's... more
I'm going in for my rhinoplasty with Dr. Jeffery Raval in Denver in 3 days. I have wanted to do this since I was 15 years old. Now I'm 41 and I finally have the courage and I hope it turns out as I want it to. Any tips on healing fast are appreciated. I am nervous and excited. I will be getting my deviated septum repaired also. more
I found Dr. Weber after looking through the reviews here at RealSelf and after meeting him and his staff I knew that I did not need to look any further. From the time I walked into his office I knew that I had made the right choice. Every member of his staff took a personal interest in me. Camille, who is Dr. Weber's right hand, was my "go to gal" before, during and after my procedure. Dr.... more
2 years ago I was in a really bad car accident, and I walked away with some unsightly facial scarring. My nose was completely different, and appeared way bigger. I was so afraid that it would not be able to be fixed. My mom was looking up surgeons for plastics just to compare and she picked Dr. Winkler after reading about him. When I met with him he made me feel much better immediately. He was... more
I have only recently been more bothered by my nose starting in my 30s. I was disappointed to learn your nose only gets bigger with age. I really feel as if I have noticed that in the last 5 years. I just would hate every picture, especially the ones where I was having the most fun and my nose just appeared bigger and bulkier with a bigger smile.
Here are a few more that illustrate what I... more
I had wanted a rhinoplasty performed since I was a teenager and as a young adult I finally saved up enough to get it done. All I really wanted was to refine my hooked nose and make it appear smaller and more feminine. Dr Albin created a monster out of me. I was so clear about what I wanted. Minor and subtle changes to my nose. Add what I got was a hugely bulbous deformity on my face. A... more
So glad I found this community for advice and support! I am deciding whether or not it's time to finally get this done. I broke my nose when I was about 11, and have hated my profile ever since. I've been lucky to be a confident person aside from my nose, but I am having some breathing problems.
Also, I'm getting married in April and I can't imagine spending all day avoiding "bad angles".... more
At the age of 15 I broke my nose by running into a glass door. Ever since I have had major issues with breathing. I am currently 27. I had a deviated septum, which did not allow air to run through my nose. Additionally, my nose shape changed, I developed a little bump, plus it was assymetrical. I finally decided to have a rhinoplasty to improve my breathing. Dr. Imola was the second surgeon... more
I hated my nose for as long as I can remember, I've had other cosmetic procedures but never facial procedures, I was always scared that it would end up worst than it already was so after months of googling for a good surgeon I came across Dr. Imola I went to my consultation and it was great he was confident knew what he was talking about and made suggestions which is exactly what I needed... more
From the start, Dr. Zwiebel and his staff were patient, knowledgeable, and on point. I have extremely high standards because I work in the medical field, and I checked out Zwiebel's office because of references and his reputation. I wanted a rhinoplasty since I was 12 years old. I was scared of my nose turning out bad, scared of offending my family, scared of the risks, and had what seemed... more
For the past 11 years, since I was about 13 years old, I knew I wanted a rhinoplasty. About a year ago I decided to start researching the surgery and looking for doctors in Denver. After consulting with several different surgeons, I found Dr. Imola. I appreciated that he really took his time answering my questions and listening to what I wanted during the first consultation. Since I am a bit... more
I broke my nose surfing and couldn't breath well out of the left side of my nose for months. It turns out the inside of my nose had been knocked to the right even though the outside wasn't noticeably crooked. I also had a lot of scar tissue and calcium build up on the bone of my nose as a result of the trauma. more
