Hi All! After having read all your reviews and...
- 26 Oct 2011
Hi All! After having read all your reviews and chosen Dr. Ciardullo thanks to some of you, I am here to return the favour and enlighten others. I have always wanted to get rid of my horrible sicilian nose. Big, potato tip, large, name a defect: it had everything.
Finally I decided to use my money for an investment on my own face and what a result! Not only Dr. Ciardullo knows exactly what you want, he knows even more... what is the best for your face harmony overall. During the consultation I didn`t really have aything in my mind, the desire to change my nose bigger than actually perusing a magazine and chosing Angelina Jolie`s or whoever else tiny noses. I just told him what I wanted to get rid of, and the result would have had to suit my face.
Even before telling him my list of "don`t"s he already took a look at my face and told me what would have been best for me. And I agreed at everything! He showed me some pictures of people with similar noses to mine and the probable result, the goal. He explained me that not every nose you see can be obtained because you have to start with what you have. It was enlightening and in that moment I understood I could completely rely on him. I just told him to do what he thought was possible to reach the goal and relaxed.
How can you trust so much a doctor you have seen for just... 10 minutes? There are many clues of professionalism, and a nice attitude and a smile help so much. Dr. Ciardullo and his staff have it all! For the first time in my life I was actually EXCITED to have a surgery done, and I loved talking to the wonderful Eileen and the Anesthesiologist Doctor (Dr. Spencer?). I couldn`t be in better hands! The anesthesia was perfect. I woke up without any pain and collateral effect. The recovery week with a cast on my nose passed as smooth as possible, with no aches, no pains, nothing at all! This procedure is, at least it has been to me, absolutely painless! I had my cast removed yesterday and I literally cried for the beauty of the results. Dr. Ciardullo has performed a miracle, not a nose surgery. I am available to send pictures of the wonderful result and of the ... sigh.... before... to anyone who wants, but I will do it in private messages at the moment. I will add my pictures later when I organize them better and choose just a few of them.
My profile is now perfect, my face looks so cute and tiny and young and what is best... when I uploaded some pictures in my facebook some of my far friends didn`t even understand what was the difference! They told me I looked so wonderful but couldn`t guess it was the nose! Only my closest friends got it. And last but not least, the price! At almost half the price of New York City, but probably double of result and satisfaction.
My last suggestion is: if you don`t like your nose... take courage and take the procedure! I know our parents, boyfriend, friends... will tell we don`t need and look fine already and all. But they don`t have to face the mirror as one has to. No need to suffer or be sad or feel uncomfortable. If you want to have a more harmonious nose just cut on pizzas & dresses for a couple of years and invest it in this painless and amazing procedure!
P.s. update! I put the pictures and I wanna say it...

Two weeks after the surgery: I put some pictures...

I put some pictures of how my nose looks like now. It has swelled up a good deal and it seems that the right/left sides of the nose are asymmetrical in their swelling. Hope it will subdue and disappear eventually.
I noticed the left side is more round and harder to the touch... has anybody experienced the same? I hope it is just swelling and not scare tissue or remaining cartilage.
Hi all! Almost one year has passed and I am more...

Almost one year has passed and I am more than happy with the nose! With time size has been changing and reducing, so now it is much more balanced than ever, and still there is some change to come in the next year.
I will certainly come back to Dr. Ciardullo if I ever need another surgery, he is one of the best doctors in NY state area!
