I had my rhinoplasty performed by dr lefkoff in Atlanta. He came highly recommended by one of my celebrity clients that wishes to remain 100% anonymous. He had no pictures of his work on black women do I went to him just based on her review and results. I'm faithful he delivered- we will see! Excited

Nose congestion :(

Feeling and looking better. Nose congestion sucks! 2 days till cast is off. People stare at me everywhere I go! Lol
Hi! Thanks for sharing I hope u are having a good recovery and are happy with the results. I'm having mine done in a few weeks and just as nervous as I can be, my dr doesn't have any pics of black people either but I have faith he'll give me the results I want. What did u have done to ur nose? And when u get ur cast taken off are u going to post pics I would love to see results :-)

Can't make everyone happy!

So I'm going to make me happy!

I've gotten a lot of bad free back- people saying I shouldn't have changed my face. People wondering if I did Bc I felt ugly- or if Bc people make fun of my looks. None of the above! When i was younger I was made fun of- I assume no more than the rest of us- its just something I always wanted to do! But I didn't do it until I had the $$$ and found the right doc! I'm happy about it. I think lol. We will c when the cast comes off...
I asked for smaller nostrils, less projection with my tip and a slightly smaller bridge. Wanted to still look ethnic:). And it is something to be nervous about. I was not nervous AT ALL before getting it done. I even had low blood pressure the day of lol. But after i was so nervous I had anxiety Bc I was like oh crap am I gonna look like the Jackson's? Bc two of my friends been calling me Janet- but I'm like whatever!!! Imma about to be the best Janet ever. But I do still hope i look ethnic:). I get my cast off tomorrow and I'm So excited! But think long and hard before u do it. I've been made fun of quite a bit. But some people are really supportive and curious Bc they have wanted theirs done too. But u have to have a strong mind before u go through with it Bc we r the weirdos- u know- the people who don't complain but actually do something about things we don't like hehe:). I'll post a pic tomorrow- good or bad. But I'm faithful it'll b good

Two weeks post

It seems a little more swollen because my baby has been hitting it by mistake here and there... Going to doc today to see if its still ok... Contemplating wearing a brace again yikes! These ones I posted with no makeup so u can see how your black eyes will look a couple weeks post

Let me preach hehe

Also my right nostril is much smaller than the left. Hoping when swelling goes down the they are nearly symmetrical. Although he did tell me perfect symmetry is impossible. It will probably be fine because initially, the left side was so much bigger my nose looked crooked! When u have this surgery be sure to have good people around you to tell u that u r beautiful as u go through these changes. And be sure not to have any appearances planned for months as ur nose changes daily as u heal.

Remember to expect improvement- not perfection!

Also no computer imaging or dialogue can tell u what u will look like afterwards.... It's like shooting in the dark lol!!!!! Just choose a great surgeon who's work u have seen and liked so u can trust their expertise to give u a nose that is in harmony with your face

For instance- I'm a hairstylist- people have to trust me to turn their ideas into a style- all while adjusting it to for their face, personality and lifestyle. That's what ur doc has to do

My doc told me he had to leave width to my nose Bc I have such a round chubby face. I'm glad he did! Because i do feel this nose- although not small- fits me- because I am not small. And neither is my face lol.

Also please please please think long and hard about this decision. It does take a toll on u mentally. It's hard adjusting. Be in an overall positive state of mind before entering surgery. Have good supportive and loving people around you. And please have realistic expectations of this your results and how long it will take to see your results as this can be a very lengthy healing process

Ok that's my wisdom for the day hehe
I smile when you said ur little one hit ur nose bcuz I said to myself I might get the surgery one year b4 my wed therefore before kids too to avoid any hitting

My new nose at thanksgiving

I felt so cute hehe. She is coming right on along
I love these results but I can't find any other reviews from other African Americans for this doctor. Is there any other people of AA heritage giving reviews of this surgeon?

Wow, really pretty, can we get an April update?

Wow very beautiful results! Congrats

Finally! These pics no make up. Just lipstick so u see real shape

Sorry guys. Ok so here it is. I like my new nose. Men almost tell me I have a cute or pointy nose. Regardless they notice hehe. I do feel cute though. Over all happy I did it. Def feel prettier! But I Don't love. My tip gets really big when smiling and almost looks disconnected hehe. Also nostril asymmetry bothers me- But only picks up sometimes in pictures. Dr has committed to fixing these things 1 year from surgery. That's nov and I'm excited!

More with and without make up

Real separated thing was real bad here yikes!

With makeup. Looks really pretty good!

More without makeup

You look so pretty, I can tell you're happy!

Can't review the doctor just yet until my results are seen. I don't care about office procedures- how long I waited- that's stuff means nothing! If he gave me the nose I wanted I'll be happy!
