My nose never bothered me until I was old enough to realize how crooked it was. Beside for having a deviated septum, at the age of 7, I was hit in the nose with a hard ball which altered my nose for the worse. After seeing many physicians, we met with Dr. Jacono and knew he was the one to do my surgery. He took the time to show us what he had planned to do and how it would look. I have to say... more
I am 22 years old and have always felt self consious of my nose. Its long and drops down.
After years of contemplating I finally decided to do something about it. I had my free consultation with Dr. Ciardullo last week and he was great. He was very honest and knew exactly what i wanted. I decided to book my rhinoplasty with him on September 9th!! Im excited and extremely nervous. more
Sighhhhh, I'm so hesitant to post on this site....weird that I'm ashamed to claim my big nose even though I've decided I want a nose job? I'm embarrassed to even acknowledge this thing on my face. Ha ha! Oh life. So far I have gotten a consultation and I feel really good bout the procedure recovery time, the doctor, and how much it is going to change both my aesthetics and functions of my... more

Dr. Devita has helped me so much! I had two deviated septums and a large hole in my nose. I never liked the way my nose looked. I can now breathe and my nose looks perfect and natural as if I was born with it. I had no bruising whatsoever Dr. Devita told me it would take a full year but already looks perfect. more
I had a rhinoplasty done by Dr. Robert Ciardullo. The process and outcome went extremely well. I was surprised that there was no post-op pain just some discomfort like the feeling you get when you have a cold and your nose is stuffed up. Prior to surgery, Dr. Ciardullo took as much time as needed to answer my questions during the consultation. On the day of surgery the staff was... more
I was extremely not happy with my nose because the tip was thick! Everyone said I didn't need a job because it will look too fake on me! I went to visit Dr Ciardullo because a friend of mine recommended him! After the consultation, I felt comfortable and booked my surgery that day! 2 weeks later, I went in for my surgery... I was so nervous but the doctor and nurse made me feel so comfortable!... more
My story is similar to a lot of those that you can read on this site. From the front I could be considered handsome but my profile was a mess. I had a big nose with a hump and droopy tip. Also had a weak chin. I decided after years (I'm 40 Now) of hating my nose and chin to finally do something.
I have stalked the posts on this website and after 6 months I decided to book a consultation... more
I've hated my nose for as long as I can remember. It was very disproportionate for my petite physique. I heard of this doctor through my boyfriends aunt and I'm happy she shared his service with me. I shopped around, feeling out other doctors and prices and decided to go with Dr Ciardullo. He showed me before and after pictures during a consultation. He displayed professionalism and genuine... more
I became a patient of Dr Zimm in September of 2013 out of necessity- I had a very bad sinus infection and I had to see an ENT urgently. Right away he gave me an antibiotic to take the swelling down and scheduled a follow up visit. Unfortunately the infection was very severe and I ended up with another round of antibiotic. Then I saw Dr. Zimm again for another follow up. Looking at my medical... more
I am now a little over one year out from my rhinoplasty with Dr. Ciardullo. I waited until now to post a review because I wanted to see full results before posting before and afters.
All in all my experience with Dr. C was positive. I didn't have a terrible nose before, just a slightly droopy bulbous tip and a small bump on the bridge. Being a perfectionist, I wanted a more refined face so... more
I just want to state at the outset that although I am unhappy with my rhinoplasty outcome, I do not regret choosing the surgeon I did. There are a plethora of testimonials on RealSelf to Dr. Ciardullo's skill and craft as a plastic surgeon, and I have every confidence that he truly is gifted. Or else I wouldn't have flown over 1,500 miles to have my procedure done by him. That said, I truly... more
I do not have enough good things to say about my recent rhinoplasty experience with Dr.Ciardullo. I have always hated my nose (big italian nose with a bump on the bridge and a bulbous droopy drip) and i had been searching for the "right" surgeon for several months. A friend of mine recommend i go see Dr.Ciardullo and I can honestly the results are incredible! No more bump on the bridge or... more
I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Marotta one week ago and am already back to work and feeling great. I was so happy with my choice of surgeon and the entire staff at Marotta Facial Plastic Surgery. Dr. Marotta is an excellent surgeon and truly amazing at what he does. He really understands the symmetry of the face and what can and should be done without any extreme measures or convincing you... more
Happy Westchester Lady:
I am more than pleased with my surgeries. Dr. Slupchynskyj's skillfulness has resulted in no one noticing my suplift or even the eyelid surgery. I actually went in for Rhinoplasty procedure because I have had breathing problems all my life and have never actually taken care of having procedure done but decided to finally get it done. So while I was getting that... more
I had a great experience with Dr. Ciardullo and my rhinoplasty results are fantastic. My surgery was October 3rd and am now 1 month post op and am thrilled. I had small bump removed from my bridge, my tip refined and projected up more. My recovery was smooth, with only a few unexpected issues. I look like me but better So I never actually hated my nose. I dabbled with the idea of getting a... more
I was didn't like my nose from the profile. I had a slight bump and always felt that my nose was too large for my face. The recovery for the surgery was slightly uncomfortable, but very bearable. The bandage comes off in a week, and my swelling went down within a few days. If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, I highly recommend this surgery. It was basically painless, and the... more
This is something I have always wanted to do. I think I started noticing how unhappy I was with my nose since middle school when one of my friends pointed out my "bump." Ever since then I knew that someday I would like to make it better. I knew I wasn't an ugly girl but I hated the feeling of people looking at me from the side. I hated being stuck at a red light and feeling like the driver in... more
I have wanted this rhinoplasty procedure for 15 yrs. Through much research, and many consults, I came across an overwhelming amount of reviews for Dr. Ciardullo. Everything happened so smoothly, once I had made the decision to go with him, and I am so happy with the results! Most other doctors I had tried to reach would not take the time to speak directly with me, without charging a fee. Dr. C... more
I have absolutely hated my nose from age twelve. I really wanted to learn to like it but I'm 25 now and don't feel any differently. My mother recently had a breast lift and afterwards said her only regret was not having done the operation sooner and wasting so much time being anxious about something that could easily be changed. I started to realize all the time I spent obsessing over my nose... more
