- 30 Jul 2010
Rhinoplasty, in my case, was one of the best decisions of my life. Recovery is not bad at all, considering I was more uncomfortable than in pain and it lasted for only a few days. Now that a lot of the swelling has subsided, my nose looks amazing! It was totally worth it. I had a large hump on my nose as well as a really droopy tip; I felt it was a huge eyesore that took all the focus away from the rest of my face. Getting rid of my witchy nose was a huge priority for most of my life, and now that I have gone through with it I couldn't be happier. If I had to name any cons, it would be that I was forced to get contacts because you can't wear glasses after the cast is removed- but now I love my contacts! In other words, I can't even name a negative aspect of my experience. The only thing I regret is not getting it done sooner!
My Doctor: Eric M. Joseph, MD
I am so happy with my decision to get rhinoplasty, and I am especially glad I chose Dr. J! He was definitely the most personable and friendly doctor I met (I met with two other doctors, and they couldn't compare). The digital imaging was a nice touch to help me see what the final results could look like. Plus, the biggest thing for me was that Dr. J suggested changes to my nose when other doctors insisted they would only fix the bump on my nose. Dr. J suggested tip refining and some septum work. I didn't even think I needed work on my tip, but that has been the most dramatic change on my nose and has changed the appearance of my entire face! Not only is Dr. J awesome, his staff is incredibly nice and welcoming, as were the employees of the ambulatory care center on the day of surgery. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone who wants the best natural looking nose they could ever have.
