Amazing Rhinoplasty

Last year i had rhinoplasty with Dr. Ciardullo and it was the best decision i ever made in my entire life! Before my surgery i was extremely self concious of my looks. I hated smiling in pictures, was always afraid that someone was going to catch me at a bad angel.

My nose was basically ruining my life. I had a big bump and just a big nose in general. It was way to large for my face. After being so self concious for so long i finally made my appointment and went through with the surgery in may of 2010.

The surgery was nothing that i thought it would be. It was a piece of cake! I was barley in any pain. The day that i got home from surgery i felt fine. I took a week off from work just to rest until i got the cast taken off. After the cast was off i had little to no brusing.

My face was a little swollen but that was about it. It has been almost a year and a half since my surgery and my nose if completely healed. The doctor says it takes about 1 year for the nose to take it final shape. I am very pleased with my new nose. He did a wonderful job. Sometimes i look in the mirror and say that it could still be smaller but everyone tells me im crazy. If you have the chance to go through with this surgery get it done. You will not regret it!!!

Hi, I just wanted to ask how much of a change you saw between 6 and 12 months? Did you see consistent improvements up to the one year mark? Thanks again for all your posts!

Honestly i did not really notice any real changes after the 4 month mark. my nose seems the same to me. i actually thought for a while that i needed to make it smaller but i think thats just my insecurities getting to me

I am so glad you posted this thread! I've been researching getting rhinoplasty for years, but have been getting nervous since every doctor I looked up seemed to have bad comments written about them. I know you can't always believe every blog but since further researching Dr. Ciardullo I can't find a single bad thing written about him! I'm setting up a consultation hopefully this week. So glad you love your results!

You look so pretty. I think if your new nose was smaller, it wouldn't look as good. It fits your face perfectly, your surgeon was spot on. Enjoy!!

Hi! You look amazing! What exactly did you ask to have done? Did you have the tip refined also? You really look great. I am extremely happy for you! Thanks for posting your pictures and your experience.

Im not exactly sure. He took away the bump obviously. I believe he also refined the tip and brought up the tip of the nose. Thank you!
