I was 24 at the time of my procedure. I started to notice after college that my nose was increasingly growing larger at the tip and drooping closer and closer to my top lip. I had breathing problems and sinus infections were common all year. My mom was a patient of Goldman's for breast augmentation and a friend is a patient who recommended his practice. After seeing their impressive results... more
So I finally go enough courage to get a tip rhinoplasty. I thought about if for a long time, but was always too afraid to do it. I'm pretty petite, with small face and I felt like my nose was too big for my face. I didn't want a huge change, just a smaller tip so that my other facial features would stand out more.
I had my surgery on Monday. My doc didn't think that I would bruise much, but... more
I had always hated my nose. It had a terrible hump and every time I smiled the tip went down in an almost cartoonish manor (kinda like squidward). Talking to people about it was always the weirdest part, mostly because people usually don't have this insecurity. For example, I always heard "oh you're beautiful how you are!" or "well I know how you feel, just embrace it" but that was never good... more
My main concern was the hump in my upper nose, but I also had difficulty breathing and headaches. So I ended up having a procedure much more complicated than just a rhinoplasty. My hump was shaved, a graft was added to the septum, my nostrils were shortened and the tip was turned upward slightly. The staff were all helpful and were attentive to my concerns and questions. The doctor spent lots... more
In the UK 2004 I had rhinoplasty and Septoplasty done to my nose for functionality and widen nose from trauma injury since the age of 12. The high profile surgeon in the UK was in summary egocentric and arrogate and never listened to my goals and desires of the surgery which were realistic as I was happy with my side profile of my nose but not with the front visual look due to widening of the... more

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. My story:I came to Bahman Guyuron because he was recommended to me by doctors in my area (I used to live... 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
