So...where to start... My name is Sonya and I'm 17 years old and living in Vancouver, BC. I've hated my nose since I could remember. My nose has a huge dorsal hump and droops down when I smile. I had 2 friends get a rhinoplasty from Dr. Buonassisi and their noses turned out amazing. Upon further research I found that he had some of the best reviews in my area so I booked a consultation with him and booked the surgery the same day. I'm so excited that the day I've been waiting years for is just a few weeks away. I saved all the money for the surgery on my own :) .
Today was the big day, my rhinoplasty! The surgery...

- Day of treatment
When I got home around 11AM, I ate some crushed pineapple and took my antibiotics, gravol and pain medication and went straight to bed. I know I'm supposed to lay slightly upright on my back but i slept on my side as I usually do and didn't feel any discomfort. Is the way you sleep really that important? I just woke up from my nap an hour ago and had some mashed potatoes and I feel amazing! No pain at all, I totally feel like myself.
Oh and the best part- I can breath through my nose almost perfectly :D
Day 2: I'm feeling awesome! No pain at all and had...

Before my surgery, I had a sneezing problem. For years, I would sneeze 3-15 times a day every single day (no exaggeration). I was really worried about this going into the surgery because I knew you weren't allowed to sneeze for a couple of weeks. However since the surgery, I haven't had to sneeze even though my airways have been pretty clear from day 1. This is a huge deal to me and I hope the change is permanent! I don't remember the last time I had such a long break from sneezing.
So today was the big reveal and I'm pretty happy....

My Doctor: Thomas Buonassisi, MD
Dr. Buonassisi and his team of nurses are so nice and caring and they made me feel really comfortable. My results are exactly how I wanted my nose to look. He was very realistic on what he could and couldn't do for me and I would recommend him to everyone! I gave 4 stars for responsiveness because sometimes it took a while for his staff to get back to me, but overall everyone who works for him is great!
