Ethnic Rhinoplasty (Middle Eastern Heritage) - Seattle, WA

I have always had a big nose. As a child I was teased about it. As a grownup I learned to feel beautiful in spite of it, and grew into my self confidence. In my 30s, I finally decided that I was ready to change it. I wanted to wait until the point in my life when I felt comfortable enough in my own skin to make sure that I was doing it for the right reasons, if that makes sense. As someone of Middle Eastern heritage, I also wanted to make absolutely sure that I found a surgeon who understood how to update my nose without changing my face - and without giving me a cookie cutter nose that didn't go with the rest of my features. I am so very glad that I found Dr. Naficy. My procedure was much easier than I expected - I was knocked out under mild (twilight) anesthetic, and I don't even remember falling asleep. The next thing I knew, I was waking up in the after care room, and being taken to my hotel room to rest. I did get a little sick later that night after I tried to take a painkiller, but I believe that was a result of the medication and not the procedure. I was slightly puffy afterwards, but did not experience any bruising. My swelling was very mild and lasted for about a week to 9 days. Within a very short time period, I could see how my nose was taking shape - and I was very happy. Within the next month and then even more over the coming months, it really settled into my face - and it looked so natural that my family never even realized I had a procedure. Two very observant friends noticed that something was different, but otherwise nobody in my life knew unless I chose to share the news with them. Since getting the procedure, the change is subtle but important to me - I don't mind getting my photo taken from the side, wearing hats or pulling my hair straight back. As much as I was already confident before, I am even more confident now. Getting surgery with Dr. Naficy was without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Seattle Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Naficy was gentle, kind and explained everything I asked clearly. He made me feel that he understood my concerns, and took my questions before the procedure seriously. His work was amazing - he truly is an artist, and I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon.

Hooray for your success story! Were you able to get out and enjoy Seattle at all while you were visiting or were you confined to your hotel room?
