I have obsessively been going through each persons journey on this site and I figure I would write my own. I hope this will help someone as well as calm my own nerves.
I am beyond nervous and I have thought of backing out so many times in the last few months...mostly the past 2 days. Then I look in the mirror and know I need to do this not for anyone else but myself.
Anesthesia is what... more
I had been sick for years with never ending sinus infections and Dr. Rorhrich not only solved my problem he gave me a nose that is cute and functional. His skill level is unmatched and his staff is wonderful! They are very responsive and ALWAYS available to the patient. It has been 6 months and I feel great! more
I am so glad I got this procedure done because ever since I was little I've had a hump on my nose and a deviated septum. So not only did I not like the way it looked but I couldn't even breath. The surgery went flawless and I could instantley tell that my breathing was improved. I didn't bruise bad but I did swell a lot. There honestly wasn't much pain at all, which is suprising considering he... more
It has been a week from today that I had my surgery with Dr. Cochran. I am truly amazed and happy with my results already. I'm not from Dallas and had to drive from Amarillo. Everybody I came in contact with was super nice. I can not thank Dr Cochran enough for my new nose. The whole process went so smooth and hardly any pain at all.. He has really change my life for the better and I recommend... more
I couldn't be more pleased with my Rhinoplasty. It looks better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Rohrich is an artist. After being picked on for years about my nose I feel completely confident thanks to him. I would reccoment him to anyone. Him and his staff would do anything to make you happy!!! Pick Rohrich. more
Amazing results; couldn't be happier. Still looks very natural and I was impressed with how close to 3D image the results were. I felt incredibly prepared and knew what to expect at every step in the process. Everyone at the office was helpful and available. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cochran, he was easy to talk to and the imaging he used made it easy for us to agree on what was... more
I finally had a nose job. I am 9 days post op and still very swollen. I have a lot of stillness in upper lip and have not used my retainer, because can't move my top lip yet. I tip is swollen and nose is still tender and slightly painful. I hate my nose. I am wondering will tip definition come in at all and will my nose get smaller and nostrils form. My nose used to droop and now it does not.... more
Please do NOT choose him as your surgeon -- he is a laser guy. I selected him several years ago for a surgical procedure and not only did he do a botched job which will now require extensive revision (cosmetic and medical), he had nothing but excuses. Since then, I have done my homework and have had several consultations with experts in the field. They were all appalled with the poor skill... more
Hello. I would like to share with you my road to revision story, I need revision because of an unnecessary failed primary, I say unnecessary because the surgeon I went to is a very skilled surgeon , I feel like I m the unluckiest patient dr Cochran had. he has so many happy patients . my bad outcome could have been easily avoided if 1- we were on the same page my doctor, I expressed that I... more
Dr Cochran seriously is the best. I know most everyone on this site says it but it is true. I honestly never considered any one else when I decided to go ahead with rhinoplasty. I had heard nothing but great things about him and had personally seen 4 noses he did that turned out great. I can now say that he is worth the hype. He is caring and listens. Above that Dr Cochran really knows what... more
Dr. Kurkjian is new on the scene, but don't be fooled. He's trained with the best and I immediately felt he knew what he was doing from my first consultation! His staff was kind and welcoming. The vectra imaging was so helpful. And most importantly, I felt comfortable with Dr. Kurkjian. I couldn't be happier with the results!! more
I have been meaning to write a review for a while now since this is partially how I decided to go through with my surgery with Dr. Cochran. My experience with Dr Cochran and his office has been amazing! The reviews on this site helped me decide to get my first consultation with Dr Cochran. I live in Oregon but my sister lives in Dallas and I liked that Dr Cochran focuses solely on rhinoplasty.... more
All I can say is that I'm extremely pleased with my rhinoplasty. I couldnt have asked for more, the results are exactly what I had dreamed of. I went to Cochran to have my bump on nose corrected and have my nose lengthened (to get a more masculine look).
Cochran is a extremely professional, caring and great surgeon. I dont have anything negative to say. The team behind Cochran is also top... more
All I wanted was "a little off the sides", because, I actually like my nose. The alar width and nostril flare is what bothered me though. One week after the quick 20 minute procedure under general anesthesia, I am very pleased with the results, even while there is still a tad bit of swelling.
Going "under" was the easiest part of the process. I basically woke up in a chair a bit wonky from... more
I had a rhinoplasty the 26th of November with Dr. Lam. I originally Googled him and was impressed with how much information about him there was about him versus other surgeons. He has videos on YouTube, reviews on Yelp and he’s all over Facebook. He’s an amazing surgeon. His staff is kind, caring and they kind of treat you like family. I’m ecstatic with the results and I couldn't be any... more
Much thought and research went in to this procedure. I visited with a total of three different rhinoplasty surgeons, however I was immediately convinced after meeting with Dr. Cochran and viewing my 3d images and his portfolio. The other Doctors work did not leave me with a settling feeling, some of their noses looked decent and some just were not to my standards. I stressed to Dr. Cochran... more
My expectations is to have a nose that contours my face and does not look too fake. Want something that looks naturally fitting to my face. I need a self-asteem/confidence booster. Tired of being insecure and paranoid that people are looking at my large nose from the side of my face. Want to start the year of 2015 strong. more
I was a competitive athlete, a gymnast. When I was 11 years old, I had an accident learning a new skill and ended up breaking my nose. I didn't go to the doctor that day because I was absolutely terrified that I would have needed surgery to correct my nose. I let my nose heal and the process wasn't pretty... I have a petite face so the most prominent feature of course was my nose. The scar... more
I'd had several nose breaks through my sports days in high school and college. With that came unwanted knots and of course, breathing problems. After several years of wanting to get it done, I did a lot of research on doctors and finally decided to go to a consultation at the Gunter Center. From the moment I talked to the front desk receptionist, to when I met the rest of the staff I knew I'd... more
It's day 5 after my rhinoplasty and septoplasty procedures, so I will give a quick account of the last few days after the surgery in the following posts. I chose Dr. Natan Yaker in Plano, tx for this procedure after years of thought and consideration. I broke my nose as a teen and have been unhappy about the appearance ever since. I developed a pretty substantial hump on my bridge and it was... more
