Amazing Rhinoplasty Experience - New York, NY

I had rhinoplasty on September 16, 2013 in New York City with Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj. My experience was amazing because of this doctor. I had been using Real Self to find doctors close to me to perform my surgery. The first Doctor i went to was Dr. Eric Joseph, i had a horrible experience with him. Than i found Dr. O and read all of the great reviews and made a consultation appointment. He was so kind and patient with me and answered all of my questions! He has an office in Chatam, NJ and one in New York, NJ. He performs surgery is both places but i chose to have mine in New York because he does it right in his office instead of a hospital! He explained the entire surgery for me and he said he would do open rhinoplasty (which i wanted). During the consultation he took pictures and reshaped my nose on the computer. Im not going to lie i wasn't absolutely in love with how it came out on the computer rendering and i told him that and he said no problem that he would do it over again and email me the new pictures tomorrow (which he did) and i LOVED THEM! I couldn't stop looking at the pictures. I made an appointment and a week later i was emailed the pre op/post op instructions. Also his office staff as SO sweet. Jana helped me with all of my questions and always emailed me/called me back. I am 19 and this was my first surgery so i was extremely nervous about the anesthesia, but instead of doing general anastesia he did this special anastesia where i could breath by myself and recovery time would be easier. I wasn't aware of anything during the surgery, it was so cool. I woke up feeling fine and didn't throw up or feel nauseous! I went into the office on the 16th thinking i would be on a metal table with a rob on but it was the exact opposite! I went into the surgery room which was not scary looking at all and laid down on this comfy chair and i got to keep all my clothes on and my shoes! The nurse put a blanket over me and put a needle in my hand and 10 seconds later i was out. Than i woke up (in no pain at all) and they walked me to another room, put ice packs on my face and i was out of there an hour later. I was barely bleeding and i felt totally fine when i got home. However i did not sleep at all that first night but i really was in no pain. Also i barely had any swelling and no bruises! Dr. O did an amazing job. I did make a mistake by taking too many pain meds. I should have stopped after the first 24 hours but i didn't. I kept taking them into day 3 post op and i didn't realize it but they were giving me an awful headache and i kept taking more thinking they would help. And than the third night i felt terrible and woke up and threw up and called Dr. O and he answered at 4 AM. He was so nice about it and told me what to do. After i got the pain meds out of my system i was feeling great. So my advice would be not to take them. I went back a week after to get my stitches and cast off. When he took the cast off it was definitely one of the best moments in my life. I absolutely loved it. It was SO swollen but i even loved it swollen! I was so happy and excited i chose Dr. O to do my surgery. He has been so amazing and i really believe he is the best. I can breath so much better and i love it more and more everyday. The swelling is going down and it keeps getting more beautiful. He did an amazing job and i really would recommended going to see him. Sorry my post is so long and all over the place but i want someone to find this review helpful and go see him and be as happy as i am.
