Rhinoplasty Review Dr Oelbrandt - Brussels, Belgium

I have wanted a nose job for about 10years. I dislike the overall size of my nose and my wide nostrils. My nostrils are my main concern. If I could change the absolute minimum it would the nostrils. I do love my profile though and wouldn’t change that. I don’t find myself generally unattractive but I feel a smaller nose will make me more attractive and make a huge difference to my face.

I have been researching for years but not found a surgeon I have trusted in regards to ethnic noses nor have i had the money until recently. I found a really good review on here and decided to go ahead.
Overall I wanted a smaller nose. Im not really bothered about diminishing ethnic features/characteristics or looking like myself I wanted the old nose gone I wanted a new smaller nose.

So I decided to go with Dr Oelbrandt I had two consultations and he made me feel very comfortable he was kind and helpful. He asked me exactly what I wanted and told me what he could do and how realistic my expectations would be. I showed him lots of pictures of noses I liked and he told me I cant really compare my nose to others and expect the same outcome because every ones nose is different and people have different types of skin etc. In addition to this I would need to compare the before noses (if they’ve had surgery) to mine in order to get an accurate picture of my outcome. But he did point out a nose from my selection, with a before picture comparable to mine that he thought he would be able to achieve similar result.

Did you think the rhinoplasty changed your smile or face?

I don't think its changed my face much. I still look like me but with a smaller nose. The smiling im not too sure because it hurts so much to smile so I cant fully smile even if I wanted to lol.

I am happy to see that Dr Oelbrant is getting more and more reviews on this website. He is a lovely man and a great doctor. I choose him for my surgery and I will go for him as soon as I can when I really considered travelling to the USA for this. he provides us with a great chance here in Europe. Your nose looks great already! congrats

Hey, No not in any pain. Although it hurts if I smile or laugh to hard. Areas where the stitches were put are a little sensitive though.
