Something I Never Thought Possible. - Wilkes Barre, PA

I hate my nose since I realized how big it was. 7th grade graduation when we had to outline our profile and Hang for all to see. That day will stick in my mind forever. Iam going for a consult on 2/7/13. Iam scared but so excited. Mixed emotions about it. I want to look like me but I dont want my nose the center of attention anymore. I will keep everyone posted. Iam blessed by my family being super supportive. My father passed away 14 years ago to cancer and I have his nose teaot. That is why I havent gone through with it yet. But my family is not mad they actually are great support. We will see :)

Ok so I was seen a week sooner, today with the Doctor. I was impressed. I have read up on this surgery and found to go for different consults with acouple different Doctors. I felt confident about what he had to say and I believe he understood what I want. He is a Plastic Surgeon who is fairly new (few years into this practice) I heard great things about him, and personally asked him how many times he does Rhinoplasty's. He was honest with me and said they arent very common he has done a decent amount of them. I asked him if I should seek different option and he said it would never hurt to go see another Doctor. He referenced one that I have an appointment with this month who is a ENT facial plastic surgeon who has many years under his belt .The thing is, if Iam comfortable and I feel he knows what I am asking for do I go and get a second opinion? Confused....

You're gorgeous!! And oh god did I hate those friggin profile outlines at school, I think I had a class that did one in elementary middle school and high school! Horrible things. I would make sure the doctor you are considering has excellent reviews, there's no better way to find out how good he is than from previous patients so look him up here on realself and google him too! If you're confident I. His abilities and he is on the same page as you with your expectations than I wouldn't second guess it. If the consultation feels off to you definitely get a second opinion Also check out his before and after images and see if you like the improvements:) you can see those images on this site as well if he has an account I have some videos on my page that may be helpful for preparing for the surgery:) Good luck and lots of love!

As of right now they are submitting through insurance because I do have an obstructed breathing issue, I know I willl have to pay for the rhinoplasty. In hopefully 2 weeks they can tell me a cost.. I hope sooner than later!

I'm so excited for you! Here's a list of questions to ask your prospective surgeons (don't be afraid to go on more than one consultation). Please let us know how it goes!
