Hi guys! I'm fairly new to this site but it's been so helpful so far! I thought I'd share my story so far with you all. I'm a 22 year old from Brisbane and I've been thinking about having rhinoplasty for the past three years or so. I'm happy with the way my nose looks front on (although not always happy with how it photographs!) but I do have a mild dorsal hump on the side and I feel like it gives me an ugly profile :( The major thing that's been holding me back from definitely pursuing rhinoplasty is that I do feel like I have a pretty face from front-on and I don't want to potentially mess that up to improve my profile. Facial surgery is a big deal! The other major consideration is the cost - this surgery isn't cheap, especially in Australia.
That being said, from front-on my nose sometimes does photograph weirdly. I have a very narrow bridge and you can see where the hump is at certain angles. This can look a bit harsh in photos with strong lighting, and this is another argument for me to have rhinoplasty done.
While researching rhino, I have absolutely fallen in love with the noses done by Dr Grigoryants in the US (both from photos on his website and from girls on here). I was wondering what your opinions were on getting rhino overseas. The cost (especially if things go wrong) and the long haul-flight are my major concerns. If anybody could let me know roughly how much their rhino with Dr Grigoryants cost, or what their experience was like as an overseas patient, that would be amazing!
The other doctor I was potentially considering is Dr Shahidi in Sydney, so if anybody could let me know how much their rhino with him cost/what their experience was like, that would be so appreciated. I'm uploading a ton of photos too so you can see what I'm talking about when I describe my nose!
Almost as soon as I wrote that initial post, I realized how overwhelming travelling to another country for surgery would be. So, I've ruled out going overseas for rhino. I've actually now booked a consultation with a doctor here in Brisbane for next Thursday, and I'm feeling really nervous about it but also excited. Will update on how it goes :)
