The Nose I Was Meant to Have - Glendale, CA

Since I was young I hated my nose, and as time...

Since I was young I hated my nose, and as time went on it seemed to grow bigger and bigger. I was always afraid of getting surgery, but I finally decided at 18 years old to start looking for the right doctor. I looked for six years before I found the right one.
I had my closed rhinoplasty on Mar. 26, 2012 and I documented my whole experience.

I am so happy with the results! Looking back I wish I would have had it done sooner to save myself from the self-esteem/unhappiness my nose caused me. I used to hate having pictures taken; especially side shots. But now I love getting in on the pictures!

If you've been unhappy with your nose for most of your life, hiding from pictures and profile shots, I highly recommend having this procedure done. Do your research. Find a doctor that you like, and more importantly, who has a gallery full of photos that you like.

Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon

I highly recommend this doctor. He's friendly, knowledgeable, honest, and listens to you.

I had a bump on my bridge and he shaved that off, I did tell him I did not want it narrower but he said he had to, so it would all blend in, would be un noticeable. He also reinforced my tip. I loved the results, I am swollen and he says when that comes down I will like it even better....but im already happy!

Thank you. I haven't had anything done to my teeth but man do I want to do some KOR whitening. Lol and I had Perlane injected in my chin in January 2013. It really gave my profile a nice touch since I had a weak chin.

I didn't know the chin could be injected to make it strong. Very interesting. I wonder how long it'll last.

Thank you! People I've known for years couldn't even tell I had it done, they all just said, "something's different, you look great. "
