Exceeded my Expectations - Chicago, IL

I always felt people noticed my nose about me...

I always felt people noticed my nose about me before anything else, that it simply overwhelmed my face. Now I feel at ease and more social and overall happier. I have gotten nonstop compliments on the my new nose's shape and the way it enhances my face. I simply love it.

Chicago Facial Plastic Surgeon

I never expected my rhinoplasty to go as well as it did. Dr. Shah made me feel very confident about my decision. He is an honest and detail-oriented doctor who definitely is just as enthusiastic about the surgery as you are. I love my new nose and the results are so gratifying.

Hi there, if you're still around, I'd love to see more recent photos too. Just got my cast off from Dr. Shah and am a little worried about the profile & tip swelling.

oh I hope your primary goes well!! I hated my before profile. I dreaded people seeing me from the side. And thank you! I loved the way the nose is turning out. I recommend getting at least a consultation with Shah. I was looking for subtle and I got it. It's wonderful. :D

I haven't had my primary yet but my profile looks exactly like your before profile. I've always eyed Shah as a potential surgeon because he does subtle and I really want subtle. Im middle eastern so I'm really trying to go natural. PS love the pic you just posted

it's taking forever to post some more pictures but hopefully it loads soon. when did you get your surgery? my rhinoplasty was just such a transformation. I can't believe I ever had that nose LOL I joke about it all the time by showing off my original nose to unsuspecting people. Dr. Shah really did do an amazing job. I just need to be patient with the results. :)

thank you! your before side profile looks just like mine so it would be great to see afters and if you get the chance please post a frontal, thanks!!
  • Reply
oh I definitely will! I need to take a new picture since it has been more than two months now. I've gotten lazier since I started liking my results more. I'll post a frontal one but the front is still swelling a little unevenly.

You look great!! Did you have open or closed rhinoplasty?
  • Reply
it was open because of the droop in my tip. I was apprehensive at first but I am so glad I decided to go with the open approach. I know a friend from school who had a rhinoplasty with the closed approach and her nose started drooping again since it has been five years since her surgery.
