I have been wanting Rhinoplasty since about 17 yrs old. Now that I am older my neck area needs help as well. A double chin runs in my family and lucky for me Lol mine is the worse. I have always dreamed of having Rhino surgery but never thought it would be possible to have. I am now in the process of scheduling my surgery. Have sent the facility my deposit for a surgery date now just... more
Motivation: I wanted a straighter, smaller nose with a better profile.
Pros: Easy recovery (minimal swelling and bruising, and very little pain), great results (not a drastic difference, subtle change as desired), would have the procedure done again, but only with the same surgeon!
Cons: The 3.5-hour drive to Dr. Nayak's office from my home. (Truthfully, the only con I can think of.) more
Here is my story so far... My surgery date is Friday the 13th of this year. I met my doctor (Edmond Cabbabe) about a month ago at St. Anthony's Hospital. He seemed very knowledgable as to what he was talking about from a medical perspective and made good observations. However after finally getting our insurance through, I had begun to research him and became a little skeptical based off 2 poor... more
My nose was the one part of my body that I have always been self conscious of. Over the years, I had become a master at taking photos from my "good side" and perfected the "head tilt" in order to make the appearance of my nose in pictures look sleek instead of "bulbous" and hide the crooked bump on the top. I can't forget to mention that I had spent a TON of money on contouring and... more
Hi, I have wanted rhinoplasty since the age of 10 when my nose suddenly became way too big for the rest of my face. I was told by everyone, even my friends and family that I could have been so pretty if it weren't for my giant nose. As I aged I did grow into it more, but it's still the first thing I see when I look in the mirror and the sole reason why I hate almost every picture of myself. ... more
Dr. Nayak is absolutely indescribable. He is incredibly gifted and has shined a very positive light in my life; I am so thankful that I fell in the right hands for my rhinoplasty surgery. My rhinoplasty has energized me to start a completely new era in my life; an era full of sass, confidence and comfort. I fractured my nose at the age of 5 while living in North Iraq, in a literal village... more
I had very twisted nose. Leaned to one size. Along with scar tissue build up and a severe deviated septum. I had a large hump that developed as well. I had 2 surgeries so far with him and I am feeling more confident about the way I look. Still hard to look in the mirror and realize there's no reason for people to stare. I always use to get comments like what happened. Before surgery. Now I get... more
Had rhinoplasty and was told will straighten nose, still crooked looks worse. After surgery he said it went well. 2 weeks later he said it may not be very straight. No discount or other procedure was offered to fix. A few more weeks passed and he wouldn't take my calls and would always be in meetings and unable to see me. He truly had no idea what he was doing and lied that he had done several... more
Ever since I entered middle school I can remember always being self-conscious about the way my nose looked! Now 20 years old, I finally went through with the procedure of having it changed to my liking. I am THRILLED. It has never felt so good to have that insecurity lifted from me. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, no doubt, GO TO DR. NAYAK!!! He is the best of the best. If he can fix my... more
Alright.... I have been stalking people for the past few months and have done all my research before deciding to go through with rhinoplasty. I decided to create a review so other people would find it helpful. I had two previous consultations before choosing my doctor on my third consult. I'm still deciding on if I want to post pictures but have time to think about it. I found my doctor to be... more
