I had a Rhinoplasty done in Iran that didn't go so well as they had completely removed the cartilage holding the structure of the tip of my nose giving it a caved in/crooked look. Completely devastated and depressed with the outcome I had gone to 5-6 plastic surgeons for a revision all of which no doctor was willing to perform the revision I had been asking for since all of the cartilage had... more
Pros: Finally looks natural and symmetrical. No longer afraid of *that* certain angle. Don't have to be so 'camera aware.'
Cons: Swelling, bloodshot eyes, and bruising took quite a bit longer than expected to go away. Of course I probably had more work done this time and I'm not in my early 20s anymore, so I didn't bounce back in a week.
Personal Goals: Moving to a new city and... more
After a previous rhinoplasty (by a different doctor) left my nose deformed and unnatural looking, I was very nervous about trying to have it fixed, but Dr. Naficy and all of his staff made me feel comfortable.

After researching rhinoplasty revision again in 2010, I... more
I had a revision rhinoplasty with Dr. P. He understood my current problem, gave me a frank assessment, and explained what he would do to fix my nose. I had to decide whether to have a revision with my primary surgeon or go to a new surgeon. I consulted with two others and choose Dr. P both for his method and for his outcomes. It was a difficult decision but in the end I am very glad I choose... more
