Happy but with Caveats (with video) - Seattle, WA

Several years ago, in my late twenties, I decided to get rhinoplasty. I had a huge nose that didn't fit my face at all.

LHE Hair Removal: it's all grown back. NOT worth the time or money - Seattle, WA

And then, of course, from 14 on I was supposed to wear retainers.... READ MORE

Hooray! How did it feel getting them removed? READ COMMENT

Some doctors do offer this, but you'd have to check with individual doctor's offices to see. Good luck! READ COMMENT

Glad you had a good experience! READ COMMENT

Thank you for sharing your experience. We'd love to see your before and after photos. :) They are so helpful for others going through a rhinoplasty, particularly if they are interested in your doctor. READ COMMENT

Glad to hear you are happy! Would love to see your before and after photos when you are healed (or even during your healing). :) READ COMMENT
