I'm not the patient who considered undergoing a rhinoplasty for any other reason besides aesthetics - I could breathe perfectly fine from my nose, have never had any childhood injuries that I felt the need to correct.. I just didn't love my nose, plain and simple. I felt that the moderate hump on my nose made my face appear more severe and masculine than I'd like, and I also felt that my... more
I'm 29, wife and mom to an amazing little boy (1 1/2 year old). I have been thinking about this for many years and have finally decided to go through with a rhinoplasty. It's not something I have obsessed over, but it's something I have thought of frequently and know that it would really make me happier. My procedure will be an open rhinoplasty, removing the dreaded hump, tip work, and... more
I had septoplasty and sinoplasty to repair my severely deviated septum in October 2014 (that initial surgery was performed by a different ENT surgeon at a completely different practice). As a result of that first surgery, my septum collapsed, leaving my nose disfigured and my breathing impaired. I saw Dr. Surowitz for a consultation and immediately felt at ease; he was very knowledgable and... more
I had rhinoplasty and neck lipo today, I was out within 2 hours and back home, so far I've not had any major pain. Bleeding through the nose as expected and a little bit of pain on one side of my neck. Overall so far recovery is going fine.
I had closed rhinoplasty and so no scars on the nose.
I do feel my neck compress may not be tight enough I can hardly tell I have it on.
I put not sure... more
I underwent a Rhino/Septoplasty Procedure with Dr. Adam Stein. I boxed all my life and broke my nose several times. I had major breathing obstruction and knew I would have to undergo surgery at some point in time. It was crooked from being broken and i was genetically handed a bump on my nose, which I never appreciated. more
I've wanted a rhinoplasty for quite some time (over a decade), and began shopping for plastic surgeons in North Carolina. After consultations with 6 surgeons across the state, Dr. Stein was by far the most impressive and confident about what he could accomplish.
I am extremely pleased with my results, and could not be happier. My hump was removed, and the tip and bridge re-shaping look... more
My surgery went so well, and I couldn't be happier with my results. My nose is now small, and shaped exactly as I hope without making the rest of my face look different. It is a much better rhinoplasty than anything I have seen on film stars, it looks so natural. I was completely normal looking in 10 days, and consider it one of the best decisions I have ever made. more
I have a rhinoplasty scheduled with Dr. Adam Stein for this Wednesday the twelveth.
I am from Georgia but drove all the way to North Carolina to do my procedure with him. For several months now, I have been doing extensive research and finally decided he was my guy! My surgery is in less than two days and I am freaking out!! any advice would really be helpful right about... more
I am 24 years old and my surgery is scheduled for November 14th.
Like many on this site have written, I have hated my nose since middle school. I was never made fun of for it, and I can only assume that I must have surrounded myself with some really nice kids because my nose could definitely be made fun of.
When I was in high school I REALLY began to hate it, and dreamed of a nose... more
I am 23 years old and have been wanting Rhinoplasty ever since I was around 12 years old. I am Italian and German and had the traditional hump on my bridge, as well as a large bulbous tip. Sometimes I would look in the mirror and cover parts of my nose with my hand and picture how much better I would look if I got the surgery done. Of course it cost a lot, and my husband (best husband in the... more
I'm currently 5 months into my rhinoplasty&am not quite sure what I think. I like my nose better than before the surgery but considering the money I spent it's not exactly what I wanted,most of the bump I had on my nose was taken away but I still have a small one and don't think that will be changing w/o a 2nd surgery,also I just want my nose a little smaller still and the tip... more
I am 30 years old and had a nose job when i was about 17-18 dont really remember...after my surgery there were weird changes in my face that most of them went away- like, the skin looked funny on the bridge of my nose and so on...but my dark circles got a lot worse and my eyes sank a lot! i lead a healthy life- right weight for my age- healthy food and excersize, plently of sleep so i... more
I'm a 32 year old male who had septorhinoplasty three weeks and 3 days ago and I'd like to share my experience so far as there were some things I didn't know or expect.I had been in mixed martial arts and had broken my nose three times without ever getting it fixed. Due to this, I had a slight hump on the bridge and bumps on the corners of my bridge (at a 45 degree angle) that were noticeable.... more
My nostrils were very open 8mm each side and I wanted to have this procedure for some time. My doctor recommended alar retraction surgery to lower the nostrils on each side harvesting cartilage from my ear.
I had alar retraction surgery on my nose 2 days ago. This is my first surgery on my nose and not a reconstruction from a previous rhinoplasty. I noticed on my left nostr more
I wasn't satisfied with original nose size or shape, so I decided to get it reshaped. My experience at the clinic was excellent, friendly staff and experienced doctor. I'm not too far along in my recovery, but, so far, I'm satisfied with my result.I am a post-op for rhinoplasty. I've been recovering pretty quickly and I haven't been having any problems really, other than this: I've noticed... more
