A plastic surgeon and friend of the family told me the Gunter Center (where Dr. Cochran operates) is the second-best rhinoplasty center in Dallas. I also did web research and was impressed by Dr. Cochran's before and after images. (I also scheduled a consultation with the purported best nose surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Rohrich, but I cancelled because I wanted to take a trip on that date).
Dr. Cochran was the only plastic surgeon (of the three I consulted with) who understood the look I wanted to achieve. He is very kind, respectful and professional in person. (I would point out that the other surgeons I consulted with were highly recommended and board-certified as well; they just didn't understand my aesthetic the way Dr. Cochran did.)
My operation (one week ago) went smoothly and my bandages came off yesterday. So far, I am convinced that no surgeon could have given me a better result. No one would ever be able to tell I've had a nose job, yet it is profoundly better than before. Once the swelling goes away completely I will update this review but I am already very, very impressed. I am so glad that I made this purchase. I believe Dr. Cochran is one of the most skilled out there.
