I've always wanted rhinoplasty. I don't remember the first time someone told me my nose was "large", but it's happened throughout my life. In jr high....even as recently as my sister in law telling me she hopes her kids don't get my nose. Not sure why people are so insensitive? I would never think to say such a thing to anyone about a physical attribute. My brother always teased me too...... more
I am 17 years old and I am very serious about getting rhinoplasty. I have a bulbous tip nose. Some people tell me it's cute, but I never believe them. Mostly because I don't see it that way. At all... Anyways, The bridge of my nose has a pretty good small appearance from straight on. I also don't have a hump on the bridge from the side view. The problem is the tip of it though... It's wide... more
I am a 26 year old female and I am 3 months post op rhinoplasty. I am so very depressed with my results. This has been one of the biggest regrets of my life. I had a very bulbous tip and my surgeon performed a closed rhinoplasty, taking off too much in my opinion. I have already looked into revision options. My only concern is that now I have a spot on my nose that may be basil... more
Following my much anticipated rhinoplasty, I am left with a crooked nose, bulbous tip, and a visible "notch" on my nostril from a suture. Dr. Joe simply said "Noses are hard." and "I'm sorry" during my appt. to discuss my disappointment. Definitely regret choosing him. I wish I didn't buy into his staff's excessive recital of his accomplishments; they certainly did nothing to help my case... more
My nose (bridge) got broken in a fight in year 2000, and that was 2nd time it got busted... I was 19 y/o then. Since then I was thinking of straightening the bridge and narrowing the tip as it was on the larger side, so my doc offered me to do that as well "while i'm at it".
So the surgery went fine, I went back and removed the cast 8 days later. I liked what i was seeing. Few days... more
After growing up hating my nose and feeling like I should have been born with a different nose, I always wondered what I'd look like if I had a different nose. A few months ago I broke my nose, which caused some breathing problems. I decided to get my nose fixed to improve breathing and improve the look of my nose. I am a little nervous because I have never had surgery before, so I don't know... more
I just turned 40 and I felt it really was about time! Ever since I was in my mid-teens and finally saw what I looked like with contacts, I was never really happy with my nose. I just dealt with it, thinking that "someday...." Each day that I looked in the mirror I really wished for a change! Well, life escaped me and now I felt the time was right, and I couldn't believe how... more
It was a procedure I always wanted to get done because i felt my nose was to big. After my rhinoplast surgery I very little bruising, swelling, and no pain. I had my surgery in July, 2011 and I think my nose looks great! more
There are many things in life that cannot be changed, but have the courage to change what you feel will help you be your best self.
My procedure was performed on December 2, 2010. I am 100% convinced this was one of the best things I ever decided to do. more
Rhinoplasty with bilateral turbinectomy as well as vaser liposuction of upper/lower abs & flanks. I was only looking for aesthetic improvement - my nose had a dorsal hump and a bulbous tip. I've never had any breathing issues whatsoever. My surgeon said he would also "take care" of my enlarged turbinates (actually just one was enlarged).I'm about a week post-op at this point.... more
