Rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a nose job) is a surgical procedure that reshapes or resizes the nose. It can correct a variety of concerns, including a visible bump on the nasal bridge, a droopy or enlarged nasal tip, a nose that's off-center or crooked, or asymmetry due to a previous injury. Those who don't want to undergo surgery may consider a non-surgical nose job, which uses fillers such as Radiesse or Juvederm to smooth out humps and bumps. LEARN MORE ›

43 Yrs Old...have Always Desired Rhinoplasty - Seattle, WA

I have always been teased due to my prominent bulbous nose. When I was in middle school, I was followed around by my classmates daily spewing hateful comments.

Rhinoplasty Results

I've waited 2 years to write this review. I had a primary septorhinoplasty in 2014 and a scar revision in 2015. My main problem was the crookedness of my nose. I wish i had my original nose back. My nose is slanted, asymmetric, and short. He removed way too much of my left alar rim resulting in... READ MORE


Hi I had my nose done a month or so ago and the outcome seems very bad. I went to a very well known doctor. And I'm very shocked and scared. Please let me know if this is normal for the nose to be upturned and short. I didn't ask for anything he did. Is it possible it'll really drop or so I... READ MORE

Rhinoplasty 23YO Female - Banishing the hump and droopy, large tip - Anchorage, AK

My story probably isn't unique. I was bullied badly all through high school by kids at school and my siblings.

I've been unhappy with my nose due to its nasal jump and pointing down when I smile, so I wanted a more feminine look that would suit my face.

I've been looking into the doctors in Omaha for YEARS (possibly 7-12) and like everyone I quickly narrow it down to Johnson and the other very well known rhino doc in town (I'm being vague purposefully for reasons you'll see).

I had been self-conscious about my nose on and off since high school.
