My nose has always been crooked with one nostril smaller than the other. I had never liked my profile due to the hump on my nose and the long look of my nose. Rhinoplasty wasn't something I 'had' to do but one of those things in life that I have always wondered 'what if.' I'm so glad I took the leap to do this for myself.
I had surgery on 12/14/11. My doctor is an authority on rhinoplasty and has spoken at engagements around the world this year on the crooked nose. It was important to me that the integrity of my nose stay the same so I would still be 'me.' He straightened my nose and took off the hump. Since I wasn't shortening the length, he suggested a chin implant to enhance the overall result so my chin wouldn't look so receding.
The chin implant was not something I planned on and I was hesitant about a silicone implant in my chin. I don't quite like the frontal look so far as there is a lot of swelling through the nose and chin. However, I can really see the difference in my profile, a huge improvement that now I like to look at myself from the side!

Doctor an expert in his field, had a clear understanding of my goals and provided the result I was looking for. Staff is very caring, knowledgeable and helpful, always ready to answer questions which is a big help before and after surgery. Follow up appointments going very well so far, even accommodated me around Christmas when I needed attention.
