I have been wanting a nose job for a loooong time....
My next concern was finding a good reputable Surgeon with lots of accolades, long story short Dr. Gutierrez was the best pick. However, at the time my money nor schedule worked out back then. Fast forward I was going to get the lipo in January but 2 weeks before the surgery I realized that I would not be able to take 10 days off of work again anytime soon and I knew that I could get lipo another time and require less time off and that it would be best to use this time off to heal from a rhinoplasty instead. I am sooooo glad I made that decision. Prior to the decision I remembered that Dr. Gutierrez had lots of rhinoplasty background on ethnic noses and I knew he would understand what I wanted.
Dr. Gutierrez and his staff are so professional and very wonderful sweet people. My sister got a tummy tuck and Dr. Gutierrez even prayed with her prior to the surgery. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met and his nurse Rachel was very sweet and caring, they made us feel safe and welcomed. I will def be going back to him for my lipo, he did a phenomenal! job on my sister's tummy tuck her scar area is so super smooth no huge stiches or scabs just a smooth line. Hopefully she will post her story here.
Today is the 6th day post op so I will add more pics later when the swelling goes down so I can get a better idea of the shape but so far so good and I really love it :-)
P.S I took the bandage off today to get some air and clean my skin underneath and all I can say is that my nose is sooooo cute! it looks so much like my wish pic, I love the definition, cant wait to post some update pics :-)
11 day post op pics :-)
The bridge bone pic shows how he got rid of the bump and smoothed it out. I used to be able to touch the bone and you could see it , it looked like a bump across my bridge. It was contributing to the width a lot because it made my nose flare out. I'm sooo glad its gone, I cant stop touching it it's so weird to not see or feel it anymore

11 day post op 2
first time "going out" with my new nose lol
My doctor was amazing and so were the staff. They picked us up and took us back to our hotel for both follow up appointments free of charge.
