Just over 1 Week Until my Rhinoplasty! - Panorama City, CA

I have hated my nose since about age 9 when I started getting teased about it. I never really considered a rhinoplasty because I always thought it would be out of reach financially. Luckily, my insurance is covering it! It was a difficult decision, especially because I've come to embrace my unique look.

Hey everyone! It's been a long time, but I'm reconsidering the surgery. I'm hoping to get it done in January, but I have yet to decide whether or not to have it done by the same surgeon or research other options. I feel a lot more confident about my choice, especially since I think I've had a lot of personal developments that make me feel like this is the right choice.
