Even just a few days post procedure I can say this was worth it. Although post-op swelling/congestion is still present since the septorhinoplasty was so recently performed, my nose looks better and more porportionate to my face and I can already breathe much better than before having the procedure.
Three weeks (21 days) post-septorhinoplasty and liking my new nose more each day as swelling... more
My whole life I felt... Not quite pretty enough. The one thing that made me shy and crazily self concious was right in the middle of my face!! For my 30th birthday I decided on rhinoplasty. I heard it was a painful and terrible experience but would be worth it. I prepared myself for this awful endeavor. I had my surgery on 1/27. It was the easiest surgery, yes I was black and blue and I have... more
I had wanted to have Rhinopasty surgery for many years, and when I had to have a MOHS surgery repair done on my nose for a BCC, I thought it was the perfect time to have both done. I am so pleased with the work done by Dr. Antunes on both the MOHS site and the Rhinoplasty. The scar on my nose from the MOHS is hardly visible,; it only shows a tiny bit in certain lighting. I will have... more
I have been to 3 different Dr's for consultations and opinions and estimates. I really liked two of the Dr's but have chosen Dr A because he only does faces so he should be really well practiced and good at this. I have watched several lip and tear trough surgeries on youtube to be informed on what I am choosing to do.
Getting nervous. Been eating pinapple and got 3 diff neck pillows and... more
Dr. Apostakalis did a fantastic job! I was so nervous about the procedure but his office staff were so friendly and kind that I felt comfortable while I was there. He did an amazing job and I would certainly recommend him to others :)
He never pushed me to do things that would make it tinier or anything, but made it so it would fit my face that would it would've naturally. more
I had a septoplasty and a rhinoplasty done with Dr. Buckingham about three months ago. I initially had the intention to interview several surgeons before settling with one, but after visiting Dr. Buckingham’s office first and meeting him personally and his staff, I was convinced right off the bat. He has a special software system that can show me a computer-generated image of what my results... more
My rhinoplasty process was very comfortable and I was confident with my decision throughout the whole process. Dr. Buckspan thoroughly explained what he thought was needed to be done to my nose. I'm waiting for my follow up this week, I have yet to see my new nose, but i can already tell it looks amazing!!
I got my cast off about a week ago and the results looked fabulous right off the bat!... more
Dr. Antunes was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure. I appreciated that he made himself available by cell in case I had any questions or concerns before or after the surgery. I am very happy with my results. I am able to breathe out of my nose better and Dr. Antunes did a good job ensuring that the small cosmetic changes fit my face. I highly recommend him! more
I did some research online and came across Dr. Haydon's website. I found many breast reconstructive before and after photos that really impressed me. I was burned when i was younger, resulted in having skin grafts taken from my legs and put onto my arms and chest. Because of the burns on my chest, I dont feel as comfortable or normal as i would like. Seeing the pictures of his amazing work, I... more
It was time. I was nervous. But well worth it. Dr Gorman and his staff were exceptional from the first time I met them. They were detailed in their explanations and patient with my questions. Reasonably priced and years of experience go a long way in the world of plastic surgery proving that Dr Gorman is truly in the business for the customer. He is amazing... more
I am a 55 year old male boxer and one of my friends went to Dr. Driscoll to get his nose fixed (many fractures) and it came out perfect. My nose was the same deal. I really lost count how many times I got it broken. I felt weird going to get my nose fixed until I arrived and everyone made me feel very at ease!!! Dr. Driscoll was great explaining everything, and I am now 3 months after my nose... more
I'm so happy with the results and its not even at its final shape. When I signed up for the procedure, I was confident and ready. However, as the date came closer and closer, I got nervous and unsure. I was worried I won't like the end result and I was also afraid I wouldn't be able to breathe (through my nose) days after surgery. So, I talked to Dr. Kerr. He was so helpful. He did not... more
Dr. A did a fantastic job on my rhinoplasty. The outcome far exceeded my expectations - - I'm thrilled with the results. It took 7 years from my first rhinoplasty consultation with Dr A. to my second to decide to have the surgery. In hindsight, I'm sorry I waited so long. I highly recommend Dr Apostolakis! more
Ever since I hit puberty my nose has been an issue. It has been something that has caused me a lot of emotional stress. The first time I was teased about its size was in 5th grade: I was waiting in line for my lunch and a student sitting across the cafeteria made a loud awful comment about my nose and all of his friends began to laugh. Since then I have been repeatedly teased about it at work... more
I just went back to Dr Weinfelds office today after having my Septum/Rhinoplasty surgery 1 week ago. Today they removed the stents from my nose and I honestly was able to breathe through my nose with ease for the first time. I was only able to breathe about 10-15% through my right side and maybe 70% on the left side before the surgury, and now everything is at 100%. This should create a... more
I had several consults with other doctors and then I went to have a consult with Dr. Tjelemand. I trusted him and felt so comfortable with his professional demeanor and office staff that I booked the surgery right away. I read lots of reviews about rhinoplasty and it can be a tricky procedure. I am so glad I went to see doctor Tjelemend. My results are amazing. I have a perfect nose... more
I employed Dr. Staebel to perform a fairly straight forward ethnic rhinoplasty. My nose was not unattractive to begin with, I just wanted it refined. I communicated clearly my goals and was led to believe he could achieve them. When I took the bandages off, I was immediately taken aback by the fact that a pig's nose had been placed on my face. I tried not to jump to conclusions given it was so... more
Recently the appearance of my nose really started looking uglier LOL; whereas before it didn't bother me as much. The procedure was purely for me and a very subtle change. I don't even think some of my family members notice, but what matters is that I'm happy. Overall a very good experience and I'd do it again.. more
I (and especially my wife) are very pleased with the results. The procedure removed skin "bubbling" caused by rosacea, and resulted in smooth new skin. The most painful parts of the procedure were the initial numbing of the skin by injection needles, and then the first week or so of recovery - frequent washing of the skin was not pleasant. After that, the recovery went quickly and... more
I never had a bump on my nose before surgery. I was just unhappy with the size. Now I am unhappy with the size (not much smaller) and the new bump he left on my nose. The view from the side now shows my nose as crooked where it was straight before. And he made my nose too narrow. I would not recommend this doctor at all. more
