I am from the midwest area and I am traveling to Chevy Chase, MD to have a primary rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Monte Harris. I am excited about this procedure and want to receive advice from previous rhinoplasty patients. I also want to share my experience. I am 25 years old and I have my fathers nose. I am a true daddies girl. LOL.

Thanks for starting your story on RealSelf! What does your/your dad's nose look like? What are you hopes for this procedure? We're here for you, so feel free to update and add before and after photos if you like. :0)

The surgeons fee was $6500 plus $3000 for operating room and anesthesia.
I had my surgery today!! I'm surprisingly not in any pain, but I am expecting the 3rd day to be the worst according to my research. Dr Monte Harris is very gentle and I felt like he really cared about my physical and emotional outcome. My nostrils are very distinctive so he did not touch them because he didn't want to give me an unnatural result.
Chezeray, have u met him in person yet?

I am running a fever today. My eyes are swollen and my throat is dry

I went for my post op appointment and everything looks good. I have received several phone calls from the dr and nurse checking up on me.


Yes I am very happy with the results. I am still swollen and will post pics ASAP
Thanks sweetie.Hope the results are everything you had hoped for.

The outcome is amazing. If your not satisfied with your God given features and want to maximize your confidence go to Dr Harris. Im glad I took the time to find a doctor who understood my anatomy. He did not leave access scaring, and recommended I get a tailored skin regime to enhance my rhinoplasty. At his office I purchased several different highly concentrated products to help me with my dark spots caused by acne scarring to compliment my "remodeled" nose. I have breast implants and I will say the pain level was more intense in that surgery then my rhinoplasty.

Also after watching several youtube videos I had this heighten sense of anxiety;I worked myself up thinking I would be "down" for a whole month. NOT TRUE at all! Yes I swollen eyes for the first 3 days, and the pain level from 1-10 was a 5 , but I imagined this really scary experience and I will say it was more liberating than anything else.
would love to see pictures
pictures please~
I am from the Midwest also and I have between looking into Dr. Harris for years. I love his subtle results and think he is the best and most qualified surgeon for my needs. I think your nose looks amazing!

For radical nose jobs , 2 or more are required

Dr Harris does subtle work, but I'm not sure if a person can handle a dramatic nose job with the first go around .

It's your face, to go from 1-100 causes mental issues. Ie Latoya Jackson looks like 2 different ppl. Look like a better u, not another person .


Your nose looks good. I can see a difference in the size of your bridge.
