Pros: I love the results. I was very happy with the results from the start. I didn't want a new "Hollywood" nose, I just wanted the profile of my nose straightened... had one of those Mediterranean bump, but I was really concerned that it wouldn't match my face when finished. It did...loved the results...
Honestly, it was so subtle, no one even noticed. I had to tell people before they got it. I knew I could fool some people, but I didn't think I could fool all. The pain was almost non-existent. Didn't take any pain meds and the hardest time I had was NOT sleeping on my side. That sucked.
Cons: After 6 weeks, I still haven't been able to breathe right. I know there is a lot of swelling, but I hate this. I feel congested all the time and have a hard time breathing thru my mouth.
Everyone thinks I have a cold and I have had a couple of people notice when I eat, I breath hard because I have to breath thru my mouth. I know its suppose to get easier when the swelling goes away completely, but when does that happen? Will it ever be normal? Does anyone have any tips/help? Thanks.

I loved his work, staff and the results...
