I've wanted to get rhinoplasty for many years now. I feel that my tip is too bulbous and my bridge (or lack of) is very short. Being that I'm of mixed race (black & white), I want to find a surgeon who has worked with all types of noses. I still want to look like myself... just an improved version. I finally found a surgeon who I feel has the experience to get the job done! I'm hoping that my... more
I've been contemplating rhinoplasty for half of my life, and after certain events transpired, decided to act on my desire to do so. After several consults, I chose Beachwood Plastic surgery for several reasons - the website is one of the only ones with several before/after photos, Dr. Goldman's curriculum vitae (board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology, so he is proficient in both... more
I am scheduled for rhinoplasty in 6 months. As a male, to make my procedure socially acceptable, I wud like to fake an injury to the nose. Since I play sports 2-3 times per week, this may be a good way to do it? Any suggestions? I need a good story. Thank you more
In summation: Bahman Guyuron did my original procedure and my revision. The revision was necessary due to his original surgery being so awful. Seeing him was the biggest mistake of my life and I regret it every day. I will need a third surgery, and a lot more money, to fix his mistake.
I will write a brief review now, then come back later to add the details. Please know that... more
I have wanted to get a nose job since about seventh grade because of a large bump. I decided 26 was the magic age to finally go through with it. The procedure took about 2 1/2 hours and I used percocet for the pain afterwards. The pain was pretty uncomfortable, and there were two days that were particularly unpleasant with vomiting (probably because of the pain meds), but nothing I didn't... more
Broke my nose painting log trailers in Sumter, SC around Aug. 1997. (Got hit in the face with a handle that spun out of my hands as I was lowering the landing gear on a log trailer I was prepping to paint.)
After dealing with almost 15 yrs. of difficulty breathing (especially during strenuous exercise/work) and having a distorted appearance, I finally pursued having my nose fixed.
So far I've had 3 consultations and I have another one this week. I'm still not sure if I like any of these doctors yet. Im hoping to get it done this fall (2013). I just keep thinking about how I will look after and that makes me so nervous!! Im also worried what other people will say after the procedure.
Well I decided what doctor I want for the procedure and I feel pretty good about him... more
I have a pretty face and my nose is not a big destruction, but I've always wanted a nose with a tip that is higher than mine also I want to get rid of the little hump I have.
I've heard about Dr. Wojtanowski from my friend who had her nose done by him. I am very nervous and excited at the same time. I have a huge fear that it turns out in a different way than I'm expecting and changes my... more
I had closed Rhinoplasty done Thursday, January 5th..(2 days ago) Let me say it was much easier than I thought. I was TERRIFIED, so scared I considered not going through with it multiple times - even the morning of surgery! Prior to surgery I had never been put under, no stitches, no blood work, nothing done before! So surgery seemed so scary! I went in about 8:20am and they woke me back up... more
I am scheduled to have a turbinate reduction, septoplasty with rhinoplasty and breast augmentation done on July7th! It has been really enlightening following the recoveries of so many brave ladies on here; I figured I should post too. I am going to post pictures of my face before and then after on here so you can see the progress.
The biggest reason I am having it done now... more
