Like so many others, after spending a year following the reviews here and on other sites for Dr. Cochran I finally scheduled my consultation and appointment. Honestly, I feel so confident in this office right now! They are very thorough and have been very pleasant to work with so far. Dr. Cochran helped to quiet some of my anxiety upon meeting him. I've been contemplating rhinoplasty for over a decade. When I was 13 I broke my nose and I'm confident that due to my then routine of 3 hours a day in goggles, swimming laps, shaped and defined my nose to have quite the "hump" it has now. I don't look like my twin sister in this manner and it's silly, but disappointing. So, here I am, getting so very anxious for the 15th to come and go without any bumps in the road. Once completed I will post before and after photos for you all reviewing and considering this office for your work. :)
First I want to say, having wonderful family and...
Cast and stitches are off
It will take some time before both nostrils are even but he gave me a realistic plan for the next year to help in this process of balancing. Choosing Dr. Cochran for my rhinoplasty is one of the best decisions I have ever made. His whole team was above expectations, the surgical institute was wonderful! I really admire this groups
down to Earth demeanor and constantly positive energy. I wouldn't look any further when choosing a surgeon. I ran into one of his patients as we were entering the building, she and her mom were so happy with the results the young gal had, her nose was beautiful! I've talked to a few other patients of Dr. C's here on
Realself and thus far, not a single bad or unideal experience has been mentioned. If you elect to have rhinoplasty prepare yourself emotionally, this can be a difficult process for your significant other. Take two friends with you if you can, your loved one is going to need emotional support as they look after you in Dallas too.
Your surgery may not be the same as mine, but I've coughed up a lot of blood (from my sinuses). I am very obsessive about cleanliness especially with the after care. Be sure you wash your hands 20 seconds+ before you do anything with your nose. Steer clear of doors, friends arm space, and keep jumping pets at bay! I will update my photos soon. If you have any questions about my procedure I am happy to answer! Not everyone's will be the same, but I feel confident that anyone is in good hands with Dr. Cochran. ^_^
I chose him because he specializes in rhinoplasty and the down to Earth vibe so many people reviewing found in him. They were right about his demeanor, Dr. Cochran is very nice and straight forward. He was very clear about expectations and possible outcomes in our consult.
