Rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a nose job) is a surgical procedure that reshapes or resizes the nose. It’s performed for a variety of reasons, including a visible bump on the nasal bridge, a nasal tip that’s droopy or enlarged, a nose that is off-center or crooked, or a previous injury that’s made the nose asymmetrical.

Dear RealSelf Community: I have been a member of RealSelf for a while now and I am very excited to be finally sharing my own story with you. I am a female of Middle Eastern descent and I have always been very unhappy with the size of my nose. I believe that a primary rhinoplasty would restore... READ MORE

After 10+ years of contemplating a nose job, I finally started looking into it this year. t's been an exhausting (and educational) process so far, but I am finally ready for my surgery! I tend to write a lot... so if you feel like reading super long amateur blogs, feel free to join me on my... READ MORE

I have always hated my nose since I was about 12 years old and have always dreamed of having Rhinoplasty. Now is finally my time! I have had extremely bad allergies since I was little and have been on allergy shots for about 7 years now and nothing has helped. I've tried every allergy pill, nose... READ MORE

I have always been self conscious about my nose. It has a big hump and a bulbous tip. I knew people talked about it but no one said anything out loud to me until freshman year of high school. I got in a fight with a group of friends and they immediately started making fun of me for the size and... READ MORE

I've now had 2 consultations with Lucian Ion and I'm pretty sure we're on the same page regarding the work I'd like done which is reassuring. Ive always had a big nose & I'd like to keep it that way - but ideally with no hump and no deviation to the septum ! I've posted a pic of the morph that... READ MORE

I wanted to get rid of my bump and have more feminine nose. Now I feel like I dont have the nose, my tio looks like a childs tip. Doctor said he will shortened the columnella a little bit, not explaining to me that it will pull the nose so close to my face. I am in a deep depression, its... READ MORE

Hey Real self users! I have finally gotten the courage to post about my journey. Reading everyone's stories on here have helped me tremendously, so I've decided to start posting! I have been insecure about my nose for almost 10 years (since I was 12). I never knew what to do about it when I... READ MORE

I had a rhinoplasty/septoplasty with Dr Southwick about 2.5 years ago. I was looking for a more refined, feminine result but unfortunately I've ended up with a crooked, Miss Piggy-esque look, visible scar and I now have trouble breathing, which I never had before. I'm not really one to write... READ MORE

Hi team, Long time lurker and first time poster. I'll be having rhinoplasty with Dr Smith in T-minus 3 weeks. I chose Dr Smith after a consultation- he was thoughtful and informative- particularly on realistic expectations. I especially appreciate the latter- I had a consultation years earlier... READ MORE

Ever since I was little I have been teased relentlessly for my nose. In high school I was called the wicked witch of the west and I would literally fight back tears on a daily basis. I'm sick of people making fun of me for my nose and I just want a small normal nose that won't be the brunt of... READ MORE

Hi Everyone! I'm soo excited to begin my 'Blogging' or 'documenting' phase of my rhinoplasty journey. Although the actual procedure will probably be done in a years time or a bit longer, i have found other peoples reviews, updates and progress reports soo helpful that i decided to do one myself...

I was hit by a car and had to get my nose fixed. There was a large hump at the top of my nose. I was getting good vibes from Dr. Elyassnia. We agreed on a lot of things and he seemed to know what he was talking about. He called me a couple of hours after the surgery, while I was nice an doped up... READ MORE

First off, congratulations! You found Dr. Naderi, so the hardest part is complete. Going through this process is scary, it is your face after all. But now that you have found Dr. Naderi, you are in the best hands possible, literally. He cares so much about you as a patient and goes above and... READ MORE

I'm not really sure why I'm posting this since I haven't had any surgery or anything, but maybe this could help someone. I don't know. I'm planning on a rhinoplasty at some point, and these are my hopes for results. If anyone has any experience to share or anything, please feel free! Any... READ MORE

I am 26 now but I had my nose done by dr palaia right after I turned 18! Best decision I ever made. My nose was perfect then and still is now. I've had a friend also go to him and her nose looks perfect too. I've seen a lot of people go to who they heard was "the best of the best" out in long... READ MORE

So I have always hated my nose growing up and it always has been something that bothered me. So after months of me telling my mom we decided to do something about it. I researched many plastic surgeons and I finally found the one for me. His name is Dr. John Bitner and he is amazing. I am so... READ MORE

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience than that which I received with CC Kat. Such a warm and kind woman who really made me feel at ease throughout my entire journey. She took the time to listen to my queries and what I wanted to achieve, and explained everything in detail. The... READ MORE

I have to say that my experience has been pretty bad since i Had my septorhinoplasty. The reason i went through with this surgery was because at times i had difficulty breathing. My septum was pretty bad deviated, and supposably the Dr who refered me to Dr. Korzec said that my septum had lost... READ MORE

I've disliked the way my nose looked ever since I was in elementary school. I had a Persian nose with a large hump, droopy tip, and wide nasal bones. After years of contemplating and saving up money, I finally decided that I wanted to get this surgery. I researched many surgeons in my area, and... READ MORE
