The Beginning of a Fresh Start - Beverly Hills, CA

Hello everyone,

I am a 19 year old female living in Los Angeles, California. I have never been picked on about my nose but I have always felt very self conscious about it. I have finally saved up enough for it, and I have scheduled a consultation for Thursday, November 15. I really hope it goes well and I am able to go through with it A.S.A.P. I just wanted to share my experience with you guys from the get-go. I am really grateful for all of you guys posting pictures/ sharing stories because it has helped me realize that this is something I really really want to do. So thank you all! I hope I am able to help someone else out with my experience and I will try to post as many before and after pictures as possible.

I will keep you all updated. Thank you so much!

So I ended up seeing the doctor last week for a free consultation. He took pictures of my nose and showed me what I could expect to see after the rhinoplasty. He did mention that my chin is small for my face, so I will be getting a chin augmentation as well. The scheduled procedure is on December 18...I'm really excited.

Thank you for sharing your story. I am 22 yrs old. I have always felt self conscious about my nose as well but was too scared to go through with any procedure. I will definitely be following your story. Thank you again!

Who is your doctor that you're considering?? I live in LA too and it seems impossible to pick one with so many surgeons around

Hello, I just saw Dr. Torkian for a consultation today. His office is in Beverly Hills. I was interested in seeing him because I read a lot of good reviews about him but was a little skeptical because I didn't know what his prices were going to be. First of all, the consultation was 100% free. He didn't charge me a penny and he spent a good half an hour with me discussing what I might expect to see, he showed me pictures of how my nose will look after the procedure. He is by far one of the most honest doctors I have ever met in my life. As soon as he saw me he said " your nose is cute, why do you want to change it?" but of course I insisted that I wanted this procedure done. I've seen pictures of a lot of the work that he has done and he has done an amazing job. I am hoping to schedule the procedure for December...I will keep you all updated!

I have always been conscious about my nose too.i would upload a pic but believe it or not I don't really know how to and my nose really bothers me I am very shy and debating whether to go through with this surgery yet. Both my cousins got their noses done really young. Looking forward to hearing more from you.
