I went to Dr. Cochran for a consultation because throughout my entire life I have had a horrible time breathing through my nose, especially here in Texas with the allergy and at night when trying to sleep.
I could not have had a better experience with Dr. Cochran. He was very professional and , very down-to-earth, funny calming personality and I felt that he and I shared realistic expectation of what could be done to improve my nose without any extravaganza.
I didn't want a drastic change. I wanted to get rid of my hump and bulbous tip and improve my breathing. I asked for a straight bridge profile, and reduction/refinement of the bulbousness.
The whole hospital experience was actually easier than I expected.
Everyone was really nice and informative and I didn't feel nervous at all , An odd sense of calmness had come over me the day of the surgery because all the staff was really amazing.
I woke up from the surgery with absolutely no pain or side effects from the anesthesia that was used and I could breathe through my nose immediately after the surgery.
I had very very minimal bruising just very slightly under my eyes. Barely had any pain. Only took half of the pain pills the first days (more so as a precaution, not necessarily)
One week after the surgery, Dr Cochran removed my cast. When I looked in the mirror my nose looked great -- front-on it was still very swollen but the profile already looked fantastic; the happiness on the face of Dr Cochran make me feel immediately better.
It's still a bit bulbous right now (after 5 weeks), but even so, people can't even tell I had work done and it still looks better than my before and once the swelling goes down, and I know that it can only improve from here on out!
It was so important to me that my nose looked natural, and it does!
Thanks to Dr. Cochran for being a great surgeon
