I've been generally unhappy with my nose for years, but it has never been a big deal. Cosmetic surgery always seemed like an unaffordable luxury, entirely out of the realm of possibility so I never gave rhinoplasty serious thought.
Now I am in a position where my job affords me the disposable income and vacation time to make rhinoplasty a reality. I have read a lot of online reviews, and... more
23 y.o. Female SO HAPPY. He understood exactly what I wanted. Everything I didn't like about my nose is gone, but the little parts I like stayed. During the consultation I felt like I wasn't giving enough detail but I still got exactly what I wanted. The actual surgery was a breeze and the nurses were amazing. Recovery was quick and Dr. Deluca even answered my call on a SUNDAY afternoon when I... more
I fractured my nose, I thought I was in good hands, even at my post open, he told me " Rhinoplasty is the hardest surgery and sometimes requires more than one"
My problem was to repair a broken nose, I foolishly asked if he could make any improvements, I figured since I was already going under, he shortened my nose, but exaggerated my tip giving it parenthesis, and my bridge is still crooked,... more
I have hated my nose since I was a child. It caused me a lot of pain because kids can be cruel. I tried to live with it and made it my point not to smile too much because it accentuated the length and I never let anyone photograph me from the side. This year I finally decided to have it corrected because it was also causing me breathing problems. When I went for the procedure I had no Idea... more
I had always had such a huge nose... and no one in my family had a nose quite like mine. I had a very wide bridge, a small hump, and a very large tip. I hated getting pictures taken because there was no angle that I could turn my head to make my nose look smaller. I live about 1 and 1/2 hours away from Albany, NY, so I started looking for surgeons around there. When I was looking, I saw... more
After having thought about this for decades, I finally took the leap. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but age and experience have taught me that life is too short and uncertain to keep putting things off. The moment Dr. DeLuca took off the splint, I knew I had made the right decision. The post-op period was surprisingly painless and much shorter than I had anticipated. Within a week and a... more
I always wanted to get my nose done but was scared as it would be my first plastic surgery. I wanted the bump on my nose to be gone, but still wanted it to be natural looking. It's now been two months since my surgery and I couldn't be any happier with the results. I love my new nose. Not many people know that I did the surgery, they can tell something is different but just assume its because... more
I am one week post op and already thrilled with the results. I wish I did this years ago.One month post op and love the results. It is perfectly suited to my face! Very happy and wish I did this years ago. more
I have always been self conscious of my nose! I am Italian and always felt like my nose was huge and was the first thing people saw when they looked at my face. I finally decided I wanted to go through the procedure and started to look around. I was only 21 at the time so it was a scary decision for me cause I have heard nightmares about people getting their face screwed up by surgery... more
One of the few brave male souls to post on here. Surgery expected in less than 3 weeks. Have always been insecure at the length of my nose, I feel it overpowers my face, draws way too much attention, and is simply not in symmetry with the rest of my face. Found a really good doctor with great reviews on the first consult, hoping for the best but becoming very anxious as the date gets closerDay... more
