I'm thinking of seeing him myself and would love to see pictures of the face lifts he's done. If anyone would like to share by all means please do so.

I've only had a rhinoplasty with him, but if he can do a facelift as well as he can do a rhinoplasty, you're in (beyond) excellent hands. Good luck!

I went with Pastorek bc I was referred by a family friend who is a plastic surgeon in Chicago... He called Dr. Pastorek the best closed rhinoplasty surgeon in the world. Based on my results, he was right. I'm more confident and Can breath better. I could not be happier.

Mine swells like crazy if I even go for a short walk! Maybe it's bc I hVe low blood pressure so they change is more drastic ? My doctor said I can blow it as soon as the cast is off, but luckily I have barely needed to. I might blow it lightly once a day right before q-tipping, and I press the nostrils inward lightly when I blow to help the discomfort and also get the air going right out instead of flaring out the nostrils. It hurts/feels funny when I yawn or sneeze its such a weird feeling! I have been sneezing a lot with allergy season. My friends keep trying to get me to go to parks and I always say no lol

yeah i totally know that funny feeling when yawning or sneezing. i cant wait for all the swelling to go down. i think my only vice when it comes to healing from the rhinoplasty has been early exercising.

I'm dying 2 exercise!!! I even quit smoking just for this bc m nose could fall apart from nicotine! My new vice is Organic Avenue raw juices I waste all my money on them. I am getting fat from sitting around and not exercising. Only 3 friends know about my surgery and everyone keeps inviting me to work out with them or go to Central Park I am running out of excuses!

well it has been 9 weeks for you, I was told that i could start exercising after 4 weeks, even contact sports. for me its funny how people I have known for yearssss can't tell i got this operation :) not even 8 days after the surgery and even after i ask them to look for something different :) which is crazy because as soon as i show them the before picture they are like holly crap. i am really happy about this cuz it means it looks natural, but still a huge difference from before

Yeah these ppl must be blind! Last night an acquaintance said she didn't recognize me :) I'm so flattered! My doctor said to wait about 6 weeks and that I am going to have swelling if I do work out, but I just didn't expect this much of it! Mine was Open-maybe that's why it swells more. yours was a revision, someone here wrote? I am getting so fat I just want to run around!!

Well I had a spetoplasty when I was 15. So I guess this isn't a revision. Yea I am sure an open procedure would have more swelling. I just took a 10 hour plane trip, I thought it will swell but it didn't :). By the way, do u put tape on ur nose at night?
  • Reply
Billy, so glad your procedure was a success! Could you please tell me how much did Doctor Pastorek charge you? Thanks

i just did about 4 days ago. so far very happy. However, the swelling and the cast is still there so i cant tell you for 100% how it yet feels. let me know if you have more questions about Dr. Pastorek

How is your revision healing? Was it open or closed procedure? Do you have before after photos to share? Thx
  • Reply
Hey, so my procedure was closed, and it is healing well, and omg I have never breathed as well as I am doing now. the procedure in addition to rhinoplasty was called submucosal reduction, i think that part made it much much better for me. I can share pictures if you would like, msg me ur email and i can send u couple that u took.
