I used to get teased about my nose as a kid and I've never really felt like it matched my face. I had a septoplasty to help me breath easier which my insurance helped to pay for and a rhinoplasty to make my nose smaller, straighter and the tip refined to make it overall more delicate and feminine. The insurance only covered $800 of the total cost but it was worth it anyway. I have a little... more

I had a mild deviated septum and a spur on the left side of my nose that would bleed without warning. I had it corrected by an Ear, Nose & Throat doctor in April of 2013. The surgery did not go well. I started with severe pain and 6 months after my surgery my nose started to collapse which created a saddle deformity below the bridge and I was in constant pain. I had to have it reconstructed... more
I had a bad experience with a rhinoplasty. I had a big hook nose and went in for a nose job around 2007? I'm not sure, i was 16/17 at the time. I remember waking up and in my drug state saying "Thank you sooo much Doctor" and I remember him replying "let's see how it goes" or something vague like that. I remember feeling worried but then falling back asleep.
Fast forward a week and when he... more
First I want to say DO your research and do not place location as a limitation on cosmetic surgery. I am a man in my forties and this is a surgery I considered for over
20 years. Also, get several consultations and don't base your decision strictly on cost either. This was going to be a permanent change so I did my research and found Dr. Papel who was located two hours from my home. Dr. Papel... more
This would be my first nose job ever. I don't want to put the doctor's name YET... he is a board certified ENT.
I just had my first consultation ever. It only lasted about 15 minutes.. I felt like it was really quick. Is that normal? The doctor diagnosed my problem pretty quickly and told me there were a few options he could go about fixing my nose. I asked him to please be conservative with... more
I've ways been very self-conscious about my nose. Now finally, at 32 years old, I was able to schedule my rhinoplasty. I had my consult on June 9th and had my surgery on August 25th. I'm happy with my results so far, but at 12 days post op I know I still have a lot of changes ahead. At this point I feel like it's a little more turned up than I would like, but I'm trying to be patient.
I am ready to get a new nose. After all the search I have done for months. I have no doubt, Dr. Kofi Boahene is the one. Based on before and after photos, especially after the Skype consultation, I am confident he can deliver and I believe he will make my dream comes true.
I will keep you update guys.

Hi, everyone! So, I've been lurking around this site since I decided to have rhinoplasty and have found a wealth of info that has been helpful and decided it was time to start my own review. I have shared my decision to have surgery with a lot of people but if anyone sees this then I guess they will know. Like most of you, I have always felt that my nose has dominated my face and wanted to... more
Hi guys! I wanted to write about my experience because I found other reviews to be helpful, but couldn't find anyone else who had the combo of procedures I had done. I am getting a breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and umbilical hernia repair.
When I was younger I really liked my small boobs-- I never had to wear a bra, could wear low cut tops without looking vulgar, and felt that they... more
I have always wanted rhinoplasty because I had a big, thick Middle Eastern nose that was some what masculine and I wanted a more feminine nose. I went to 2 doctors total. Dr Le was the 2nd doctor I went to after going to Dr. Naderi in Chevy chase ( which by the way is way to hyped up)- he charges way too much and doesn't listen to you. First, it took me like a month to get Dr. le's initial... more
Too early! Answer this is my nose crooked? I am concerned that I won't get the results discussed. I had my procedure Oct 2013 I had a deviated septum rhinoplasty etc. the surgeon said see you in a year on my 90 day which was a few days ago Feb27,2014 my surgery was Oct2013. So I have to wait a year and 5 months. Why should I wait yes the swelling is off and on. Yes my breathing is some what... more
So im having rhinoplasty today. I am so nervous and scared, I don't know what to do with myself.
I found realself when I was interested in getting a bbl. I am still considering a bbl but im not ready to commit to having it done just yet.
I have hated my nose for as long as I can remember. Thanks to constant teasing as a kid it is a big insecurity for me. I have always been afraid of... more
I can not thank Dr. Le enough for my new nose! He is very caring an takes pride in his work. Dr. Le schedules plenty of time for you consultation and you don't feel rushed. He spent two hours explaining everything and answering all of my questions. He is a perfectionist so you know his work is as close to perfect as possible. I am very happy with my results and would highly recommend him to... more
I went to Dr. Capone in early 2010 to discuss Rhinoplasty. I had trouble breathing and was unhappy with the appearance of my nose. At the time of surgery, I had a Chin Implant also, which Dr. Capone had recommended as a compliment to the Rhinoplasty. I am so happy with the results! Worth every penny that was spent! more
I'm soo excited to begin my 'Blogging' or 'documenting' phase of my rhinoplasty journey. Although the actual procedure will probably be done in a years time or a bit longer, i have found other peoples reviews, updates and progress reports soo helpful that i decided to do one myself.
I am still in the early process of saving, but i am definitely looking into the different surgeons... more
I am extremely pleased with the outcome of a recent surgical procedure conducted by Dr. Le of Baltimore-Washington Facial Plastic Surgery, and am very happy to provide a review of this experience.
As a teenager some 40 years ago, I broke my nose in a ‘rough-housing’ accident. I have never been particularly pleased with the visual effect of the break and followup surgery to realign the... more
I have a consultation with Dr Boahene on the 15 th Jan in regards to a rhinoplasty. This is a procedure I have always wanted done and at the age of 28 I have decided to give my body a major overhaul and renovation. I like to call the whole process "Project Phoenix"
I have an authentic Black Caribbean nose, which consists of a wide round nose, with little to no bridge and thick skin.
My experience was wonderful! Dr. Papel and his staff were great and made me feel very comfortable about my whole procedure. They did before shots and showed me what my nose would look like after the surgery. I was so pleased to see that it turned out exactly how I wanted it! They were very professional and I was very impressed with the whole process I went through. My recovery has been great... more
I always hated my nose as it grew bigger as i got older. i come from a family of really ugly and wide noses, and i hated it. I had rhinoplasty, and when the splint came off, it was gorgeous, but it keeps changing everyday and it looks like my old nose somedays. However, i did tell my PS i wanted a subtle change,a nd that's exactly what i got, but nosw i feel like i want a drastic change... more
