It has only been 1 month since my surgery, but I can already tell I am going to be happy with my new nose! I still have swelling, but this was explained to me beforehand. I have not had any surprises.

I have a bump, probably infection...I will have exploratory surgery Wednesday. Doc thinks I have sutures that have not dissolved. I am still happy with the results. I will definitely look better when the bump is gone.


hi doozy thanks so much for the review, I am looking into Naficy myself. Do you have any updated photos?

I still have a lot of swelling probably due to the infection. The pictures I posted are not very flattering. It looks better in person.

I like the results

I'm not in love with my new nose...however it is smaller! It is still crooked though.


Hi sorry haven't been here for awhile...probably going to have a revision done at about a year. My nose was crooked when I started and still is.

Profile, I like it....


You can definitely see how much the swelling has gone down in the later pictures. How are you feeling about it now?

Hey doozy, thanks for sharing your review. Im booked for rhinoplasty with Dr. Naficy next month & am really nervous after seeing ur review. I have several important life events coming up a few months after surgery & am really worried about getting unsatisfactory results the first time around. I have crookedness in my nose too & selected dr naficy because, looking at his website, it seemed like he is really good at fixing crooked noses. The price of my surgery with him is 2x more than what i was quoted elsewhere, but i thought he'd be worth it. Are there any reasons ur results didnt turn out as u had hoped? Eg. Thick skin, etc or is it his skill that was lacking?

I would not go...he took a less invasive approach and I am scared to have him redo it...
My nose looks smaller but just as crooked

Still crooked

I saw the dr about 3 months ago and he told me that I would have to have surgery all over again to correct my nose. Not happy about that at all and afraid that it will look worse. I am updating my review.


Assymetry is likely after surgery. i think you're being too picky.

Really? You mean after fixing it? I have already had open rhinoplasty once to make it symmetrical.
Thank you. It doesn't look like Naficy's job at all, especially after you see all the pictures they show you, and read about him... He was my first choice, but their greed steered me away. They wanted to charge me the same amount, 15 thousand dollars with or without insurance. I was confused, I thought I was dealing with a reputable outfit. I told them to go pound sand and found a different doctor. Anyway, one of his clients shared her photos with me several months ago. I couldn't justify the price looking at her results, he only fixed columella, and it cost her 10 thousand dollars. So there are people who are not happy, they don't post for some reason.

New photos

As you can see it is still quite crooked and my nostrils are misshapen. Not too picky. It was crooked when I started this journey and looks worse now than it did before surgery.

I would be very upset. I am getting a revision dec and am feeling very anxious. The posts repeating the doctors names over and over and rating so highly are obviously paid to do so or working for the surgeon in some capacity. This site is called realself not fake to boost the dr self esteem. I wish u all the best and hope someone can help get ur desired outcome!!

Thanks so much for your updates? Did your doctor give you any insight into why your nose didn't meet expectations?

I did a lot of research. Dr. Naficy and his staff are so far the best I have seen. I couldn't have chosen a better place to trust with my face! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I am updating my review...this was very early on in the process when I filled this review out. Since my surgery in dec 2012 I have been quite distraught with the results. I am living with a crooked nose still. My nose is smaller but wider and quite crooked. I am debating back and forth about whether or not to let him fix it. Scared that it will turn out worse. Not what I was expecting.
