So I have always hated my nose growing up and it always has been something that bothered me. So after months of me telling my mom we decided to do something about it. I researched many plastic surgeons and I finally found the one for me. His name is Dr. John Bitner and he is amazing. I am so excited to get my rhinoplasty. more
Went to this specific doctor after seeing his before and after online. After flying across country and doing a consultation and telling him I'm looking for refinement and the tip was a priority. He suggested narrowing the whole nose and I was okay with that as long as the tip does not look bulbous. After surgery and looking in the mirror with the cast I thought it was just me that the tip... more
Dr. Bitner and his staff ROCK!! I had rhinoplasty last week and had my cast removed today. All I can say is Bitner is a true artist. I am absolutely thrilled with my nose!! It's cute as a button and I'm totally psyched to show it off. I had consulted with other plastic surgeons before seeing Dr. Bitner about rhinoplasty. The doctors seemed good but I wanted the best so I went with Dr. ... more
Like many of you, I have disliked the appearance of my nose since adolescence. I was not bullied by it, but simply had a complex. My nose has it's good angles and I've learned to work them. My hopes are to be happy with myself at any angle and have a very natural look. I've set up 3 different consultations in the next few weeks. Really hoping to narrow it down and feel confident in the... more
I've thought about this since 3rd grade. But I was so scared about people thinking I was vain or shallow for worrying so much about my appearance. I wasted so many years feeling self conscious. I was also terrified of anesthesia. That might sound silly. But what if I died just because I was worried about my nose. I always posed from only one side in pictures to hide the hook in my nose. ... more
My nose is large and has a small hump from the profile. Overall I want to decrease the size of it and define it more. I know my nose isn't horrible but it has ALWAYS bothered me a lot. I think it is the one facial feature that is off on my face. I have had to reschedule my surgery and will be doing so again for the first week on March as I am coming off a medication that has taken longer... more
I have kind of fixated on my nose ever since I was around twelve. At a youth activity I noticed how it really made my side profile look caveman-ish (to me anyway). Ever since then I have dreamed of the day that I would get it fixed and have the most beautiful nose ever! Every year I was tell my husband that he could get me a nose job for any holiday/birthday when he asked what I wanted. He... more
I honestly didn't even know I had a deviated septum. I assumed I was just out of shape when running and It never got better after pregnancy. My GF told me to go get it looked at and the ONLY Reason I went was bc she had a "Nose Job" and I never would have know done by Dr. Daniel P. Ward, It was great bc he was able to fix my genetic "Bump". more
I had surgery with Dr. Bitner yesterday and I am feeling fantastic. Recovery has been nothing short of great. In post op I took one pain pill before leaving, was fairly with it and awake the entire ride home. Once home I relaxed for a bit and was a little in and out. The only pain experienced was a mild headache and my nose has been bleeding which is normal the first 24 hours. Surgery was... more
While I have loved my straight nose, I felt as I got older that it started to overshadow my profile (to large for my face), and I always kept my chin up high to help visually balance it out with my jaw line and other features. I knew all my angles....
About 9 years earlier, I broke my nose doing martial arts, my straight nose started to look hooked, and I was then plagued by... more
As long as I can remember, I have disliked my nose. My nose was excessively long, wide and droopy. I have always dreamed of having a nose that fit my face but I was always scared away by the what ifs until I met Dr. Bitner. Dr. Bitner and his staff (?Jamie and Robin to name a few) are very honest, compassionate and knowledgeable. I could go on and on about how great they are! I honestly... more
Alright, so I've wanted a new nose since I was little. I've been saving for a while, and now at age 20 I'm ready to have my rhinoplasty! I'm going in for my consult on Dec 9th and I'm beyond excited. But I wanted to know, have any of you scheduled you acutal surgery in the same month as your consult? Is it hard to get in just weeks after? Fill a girl in! more
Dr Barr is amazing, and I am so happy with what she did for me! I went to see Dr Barr to discuss possibly having a rhinoplasty. At the consultation she walked me through the procedure, took pictures, and showed me the different options for my nose. The surgery went smoothly, and the recovery wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. I was obviously a little nervous about having a... more
Amazing results, wish I would have done it 20 years ago. Not only did Dr. Ward made my nose pretty but he also fixed my breathing problem. I just to breath through my mouth. Although it takes a few months to see the final result it is so worth it. I had hardly any bruising, swelling came a couple of days after procedure, hardy any pain. Was able to go back to work after a week. Every... more
I always hated my side profile, I can pretty much say I would get angry every time I saw it on a picture. It affected my self esteem a lot.! (More than yuu can imagine.) so I told my family I wanted rhinoplasty and they were supportive about it. They understood my reasons and that was all good. So we were looking into surgeons but we didn't really feel like we were sure about it, until one day... more
Dr.Ward and his staff are amazing! I can breath so much better and my snoring has decreased! The entire experice was outstanding! From my initial visit, pre-op, post-op, surgery and follow ups! If your looking to breath better out of you nose or cosmetic reconstruction, Dr.Ward is the one to go to! You will be complete satisfied! No regrets! I recommend him to everyone! :) more
I’d like to start off by saying that my entire experience with Dr. Bitner has been great and I couldn't have asked for better results with my rhinoplasty!
I’ve considered getting a nose job for many years, but seriously started considering it within the last year. I currently live out of state and researched doctors both here and in Utah, where I once lived. I had consultations with... more
Dr. Bitner worked wonders for me, and I would recommend him to anyone! I struggled for over 15 years with sinus and nose issues from an accident. I had more sinus surgeries that I can count, and had 3 reconstructive rhinoplasties. The scar tissue continued to return in my sinuses, and the last attempt at a reconstructive rhinoplasty went horribly wrong and left me disfigured. I consulted with... more
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with Dr. Mobley in Salt Lake City? I'm interested to know if you were satisfied with your results. I've had a consultation with him and he seemed like a great doctor, but I would be interested to hear what people's actual experience with him is. He claims to perform more rhinoplasties in SLC than any other doctor, so I'm hoping some out... more
I've had trouble breathing out of my nose since I was a teenager. I've also always been bothered by the appearance of my nose, especially the profile. I've often longed for a less prominent and more feminine nose. This year I felt it was definitely time to do something about both problems.
I researched surgeons for awhile and set up my first consultation in December 2012 with Dr. John... more
