I had surgery on july 17 it was a rhino/ septoplasty. I was really nervous about sedation and seemed it was all a dream. I knew it was what I had been wanting since I could remember. I was getting my hump fixed which was my main concern cause I really hated my profile. As soon as the nurse gave me my margarita I was out in seconds . I don't remember a thing, when I woke the procedure was... more
I was always self conscious about my nose. I had the hump and or hooked nose, not too witch-y like but Yes... since an early age, I wouldn't engage in conversations with people looking at my profile angle, nor would I allow myself to take photos because of my insecurities. I missed out in a lot of family pictures and moments because of the gloominess that shadowed over me. I knew that my nose... more
First time Rhinoplasty. Dr. Lopez performed the procedure on a Monday, and I was back at work that same Thursday on no pain meds. From start to finish this surgery went flawlessly. Extremely happy with results! Very little pain. Minimal swelling. Turned out better than I expected. Pre-op and post care were excellent. I'm a Registered Nurse and Dr. Lopez has an excellent reputation in... more
After years of contemplating a "nose job" and getting 4 different opinions, I finally found a specialist that I could trust to do the operation. He was a great listener, had a vision for the changes that I wanted, and delivered fantastic results! It is such a major decision to alter the look of your face, but I assure you that Dr. Lopez is the only surgeon in town that I would choose for a... more
Like others, I have been unhappy with my nose since I was a child. My nose was larger than some people's faces or at least it seemed that way. I asked my parents for one but they discouraged me as a teen. I decided to wait until I could afford it and I finally did it!! My issues were with how large, wide, and bulbous the tip was.
In June of this year I decided it was finally time to get the... more
For as long as I can remember, I had been very self-conscious of my nose and how strange it looked; albeit, I may have been able to see a more amplified version of my own imperfections than the average person. Nonetheless, I wasn't happy with the nose I had been born with. So for an entire year, I saved up as much as I could and vowed to finally do something about it. I searched diligently... more
Hi my name is Gabby and am 19 years old. I have been wanting to get my nose done ever since I can remember. Mainly for the fact that I have been told it is larger than normal and that has always really stuck with me. It has enabled me to do a lot of things in my life and although i have dealt with it at times I know I am not the person I am because of it. I sometimes feel wherever i go people... more

I got my nose done because I did not like the wide bridge and the bulbous, ski slope tip. Also, as I am aging, my cartilage had begun to separate at the tip.I am not sure of all the pros and cons just yet. I guess one pro is that the bridge is narrower. For the cons see below.I am 7 weeks post op and am noticing that my nose curves to the left right under the bridge. It then curves back to... more
