Rhinoplasty Dr. Robert Ciardullo, MD : Nose Job

Going to get my nose done on the 28th! My doctor...

Going to get my nose done on the 28th! My doctor is Dr. Robert C. Ciardullo, MD I found him on this site and he had wonderful reviews and pics. I'm praying that mines will turn out the same. I'm mixed with black but my nose is long med size with a bump. Never hated my nose until I turned to the side

Thanks for starting your story on RealSelf! Having a nose you like is so liberating! I hope you love it as much as I do.

Here's a list of supplies you might need for recovery.

Keep us updated!

Praying for a cute button nose!
Congrats for taking the dive! Dr. C is operating on my nose in two days! So nervous!

Don't be everyone is super nice! Your talking they give you the IV then your done lol I woke up with a sore through so have some cough drops on deck!! My face hurt but after I took my meds I was fine its really not that bad. I bruise so bad but for some reason I didn't maybe because I took 4 vitamin C pills a day for 2,weeks straight. It's really a breeze and it looks pretty from what I can see! Good luck please come back to my page so I can see how you are doing good luck!!!

Swelling going down pain going up

Well its day 4 im doing well although i feel some tightness and pain but its not so bad!

swelling is going down thank GOD

Finally breathing again

Cleaned out crust dried up blood and debri tonight now I can finally close my mouth and breath through my nose. I only have 4 days left until this cast is removed yah!!!! I'm trying to image what my new nose will look like!!

Tip going down

My tip is looking less piggish lol! I'm so happy!!

Going out trying to get cute lol

Well I have to leave out so I had no choice but to wear my cast out. I feel a little self conscience but a girl has to do what she has to do right!!!
Don't worry about your nose looking piggish... so normal at this stage. You are all taped up under there and combine that with the swelling and it makes perfect sense for it to appear that way :)

Thank you it went down a lot so im happy. How is your nose doing?

Small Nostrils

My only complaint is having smaller nostrils its so hard to clean your nose lol. My nostrils are small now with swelling so I can't imagine, thank God for Qtips lol! Dr. C. gave me a nostril reduction because he felt my nose was to wide he also raised the tip and shaved down my bump. Tuesday we shall se the outcome. Fingers crossed!!!
Glad you are happy :) My nose had some issues after my primary so I am looking into an additional surgery. Thank you for asking!

Well good luck on everything, please keep us posted!!

One more day until cast removed

Well guys I have 1 day until my cast is removed!!! I'm so elated! I tried on some eye makeup I want to be cute for my removal lol!

Dirty oily skin

I was only able to do makeup on my eyes guys! Can't wait to wash and exfoliate my face so that I can beat my face! Anybody out there struggling from oily grimy skin because you cant wash your face??
Hey it's looking so much smaller & cuter as the days go! I love your eye makeup too! My skin is really oily too, even if I'm using the facial wipes they don't do anything it seems like :/ I'm gonna try to go some eye makeup tomorrow since I'm going back to work, but my eyes are still black so I don't know how that's gonna go lol. I took some of the tape off of my cheeks so they can breathe but the stickiness is insane! I tried makeup remover, water, nothing is helping the greasiness! I think I'm gonna try nail polish remover just to see if it dries it up a little (I'm desperate! lol)

Awwhh thank you!! My skin is already oily but now its just out of control and dirty smh. I should have picked up some seabreeze try that! Im getting my cast off tommorow i cant wait to show you!!

scared!

So i get my cast off tomorrow i was excited but now im just scared! I know i cant expect perfection but it is my face and it wasnt cheap either lol! Im going to pray for the best and calm down. Wosai lol

Forgot to mention

So my skin is beyond oily im going to stay young forever lol however the oil in my skin has totally lifted my surgical tape up on both sides. My nose has also shrunk therefore my cast has damn near fallen off! I hope Dr.C will understand!

Cast Fell Off

Well guys my cast fell off so while it was on its last leg I called Dr. C at home and he said that its normal if its day 6-7 due to oily skin. I thought I did something wrong but he said let it fall off. My husband slipped the falling lopsided cast off and OMG Dr.C must be an artist or a magician my nose is beyond what I expected!!!!!! If its swollen then I'm not sure of what it will look like as time passes! I'm so happy I went to him he changed my life!!!! I'm going to get my stitches out tomorrow I will update and provide more picks!!!

Dr.C Rocks

I'm so blessed to have found this site and all of Dr. C's patients thanks guys

Bump on right side

My nose has formed a hard bump on my right side. I've been reading that's normal due to swelling and bones however I still want to get it checked out. Still swollen in pain can't breathe dry nose but I love my new nose. Going to make an appointment in Aug. to have this bump checked out!

no more bump

My last update was that I still had a small bump on my left side well im happy to report its gone!! I guess it was swollen or hard cartilage but my nose is perfect now!
Just now seeing this... Wish I could see more pics, because my nostrils have a flare to them, and I would like to see your before and after. And now that your nostrils are smaller, how is breathing in general? Does breathing feel like how it used to be? Or is it a bit different?

congrats! any after pics?
