I married later in life and made a pact with myself that IF I was unable to have children I would have rhinoplasty. For various reasons I wont go into...I am hear at the door step of a "nose job". I live in Alaska but my Mother lives in Worthington OHIO so I decided to look for a Dr there for the anonymous recovery as opposed to attempting it in my small Alaskan town. I started looking for... more
I had so much anxiety over getting this done but I finally decided to go for it. For a long time I never thought I could go through with something like this but as the years went on my nose looked worse and worse. I'm so glad I did. As you can see in my before picture my nose was very wide and asymmetrical. One side was lower than the other and my profile was very long almost witchy. I only... more
Prior to surgery my nose had a slight hump that I was never very fond of. For years, I had contemplated undergoing plastic surgery but was always hesitant. By no means did I want to end up with a "Michael Jackson" nose in an attempt to fix such a small issue. I eventually decided to begin the search for a reputable plastic surgeon.

I was referred to this office by a friend of mine who had a "boob job" by Dr. Heck. I will be meeting with Dr. Wakelin on Feb. 19th and I'm so nervous!!! Have any of you had a nose job done by him?

The tip is just too big for my small face and body. After feeling self conscience about it for years, I finally decided to do something about it! I had my first consultation last month and immediately booked the surgery the same day. I felt great... more
I've always hated my nose and finally have the money and time off to do it. I'm super extited! I'm already had my breast done by this surgen and I totally trust him! That's why when he suggested a chin implant would really improve my profile and give me the look he thinks I'm looking for, I beleive him. But I cannot decide what to do about doing the chin also.
I feel... more
I am exactly 5 weeks out from having just my tip worked on. I wanted it thinned out a bit.
I am very upset and paranoid as I am extremly not happy with my results thus far. The nose looks big still. My doc told me by three months that I will see the final product.
Anyone else in the same boat that has gone thru this and with time it looked better? Also how much swelling do you... more
