I have had several procedures done by Dr. Pena and ALL have had to be touched up, costing more money & time off work with each. He is very very nice & a wonderful staff but unless you have money & time to keep going back, this might not be the best choice. Now I'm stuck with a big ugly nose & a flat chest from a reduction & I can't afford to fix it or have time off work to get it done. more
I have been wanting a rhinoplasty since I was about 13, and was always scared of the pain and cost. After further research of different doctors in the SouthWest Florida Area, Dr. Stephen Prendiville seemed the most professional and experienced doctor I spoke with. His staff are also very welcoming and gentle to all your needs, they don't treat you like just another patient. Dr. Prendiville and... more
For the past 6 years I have had insecurities about my nose, so I saved up and did my research about the plastic surgeons in my area. I wanted to find a surgeon that I felt confident that would give me the outcome I was looking for.
After receiving my surgery I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome; very happy I got the surgery. more
I was never happy with the shape of the bridge of my nose and finally decided that I wanted to change it, I wanted a slight change in the bridge area that looked natural and did not change the appearance of my face. I had a "bump" in this area of my nose that made my side profile look awkward to me. The alteration of this portion of my nose was all that I wanted completed. I am thrilled... more
Hi, as you see I am 58 years old and I think I am the oldest rhinoplasty patient I have seen on this site. LOL Like almost everyone else I have hated my nose since I was in my early teens. I was always teased about it mostly from my own brothers and sisters. There was no hump and it was not crooked just extremely long. My profile was awful. I have always avoided the camera and being... more
To be honest, I was terrified of getting a nose job. I have 2 friends that got them done (NOT by Dr. A) and the results IMO were horrible. Their noses look fake, altered and they don't even look like themselves. I knew that I wanted to do my research and find a doctor that specialized in facial surgeries - not a "one stop shop doctor" mistake that my friends made.
After much research I found... more
Well, I have had issues with my nose for as long as I can remember. I just turned 33 and decided it was time to finally get it fixed. The things I don't like about my nose are the size, the bump, it is crooked, and the tip kinda pulls everything down. I went for a consult and made the appointment to get it done October 29th, so I only have a week and a half to wait. I have my pre-op coming... more
I've had upper & lower blepharoplasty and just had rhinoplasty by Dr.Gardner. He was highly recommended by my award winning female doctor. Dr.Gardner is known as the go to plastic surgeon for many within the medical realm. All I can say is he's a rock star! Personable, professional, gives honest objective opinion without pressure or making one feel bad about themselves. I've experienced... more
After about 15 years of considering rhinoplasty, I have finally decided to do it. I am scheduled for surgery exactly one month from day on March 14th! My nose has always bothered me, due to the large size, bulbous tip and bump that I have (I'll have to post some pictures later). I know this will give me the confidence I've been lacking and I can't wait to take a profile picture that doesn't... more
I have never gotten plastic surgery before but this was relatively a relaxed and easy recovery. I do not remmeber anything from the surgery or from getting home from the surgery but the first 4 days after surgery it was difficult to sleep, of course, with swollen eyes and cheeks. It was also impossible to taste or smell anything until the packing was taken out of my nose after 4 days. The cast... more
I had my Rhinoplasty done a few days ago, I had NO PAIN just felt like alot of pressure the 2-3 day from swelling and the first day I slept through everything.. At about day 4 your nose is still swollen but your face isn’t swollen anymore I did not bruise I got lucky.. I have a little yellowish tint underneath my eyes but that has gone away now. The only obvious factor that give it away is... more
I'm 16 and im getting a rhinoplasty next wenesday! Summer just started and obviously this would be the time to do it. My nerves and thoughts about the surgery have been back and forth. Everytime i think about it, i think of a new reason to be worried or not do it, then again i think of a lot of reasons to do it! Starting in about 6th grade i was very self conscious of my nose. It doesn't blend... more
I'm 40 and have lived with a nose that I have never loved. Overall I'm a pretty confident guy but as far as I can remember many people have commented on my nose being big which has made me feel self conscious. Whenever I see a picture of myself I am always drawn to see how my nose appears.
Earlier this year I began developing quite a few sinus infections and I finally went to a doctor to... more
About 8 years ago, when he was at Stanford, he performed a rhinoplasty on me that came out looking like a pig snout. Because no one else would touch me, I allowed him to do a revision on me. Where do I start? My nose looks bigger than before, it has a lump it never had, the cartilage inside my nose is S-shaped, I have nose bleeds all the time, the grafts have shifted and the tip is an... more
I recently had rhinoplasty done by Dr Prendiville. I have never liked the shape or the side profile of my nose, finally at the age of 49 I decided to do something about it. I did five consults and choose Dr Prendiville hands down, he delivered exactly what he said he would. I feel he truly has a passion for what he does. For the first time in my life I love my nose. I felt I was given the... more
I was always self conscious about my nose but scared of plastic surgery from all the horror stories I would hear and see on TV. My main concerns were scaring and the possibility of a revision surgery. Finally I convinced myself that I had to do something about my nose that had been bothering me for years and made an appointment with Dr. Stevens. 6 months later and I am completely healed with... more
I have always had a large nose and have been made of for it for as long as I can remember. It was something that always made me self conscious to the point that I would never let people see my profile and I would do anything to avoid getting attention drawn to myself. I had broken my nose twice when I was about 15 and got a deviated septum as a result. When I was 17 I started having breathing... more
I have always wanted to have my nose reshaped. It has bothered me as far back as I can remember. After meeting the Doctor I felt comfortable that now was the time to have the procedure. Now that I am in the 3rd week of recovery, I wish I would have had the prodedure dones years ago...however maybe years ago I would not have had the fantastic results. The Doctor did an amazing job making my... more
