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.

After considering, thinking about and dreaming of it, my rhinoplasty is going to become a reality. Years of bullying destroyed my self confidence and although I've got some of it back, I never feel beautiful or even above average. I am 100% having rhinoplasty this year and am considering Huw...

I've had ten nasal surgeries since 1982. To correct a valve collapse, a Proplast was inserted in 1990 by Dr. Craig Foster (NYC). 19 years later, the Proplast was infected and caused a major staph infection that resulted in losing half my nose (and spending 10 days at Lenox Hill Hospital on an...

I've wanted a rhinoplasty since I graduated high school. But as life goes, so did my money. Being a college student beginning her career is pretty tough but I want to get my nose reshaped badly. I think that I would feel more confident and in turn I will exude confidence in my day to day... READ MORE

I've never really liked my nose but it wasn't until I started losing my facial fat that it really stared sticking out. I have a long slender shaped face and the hump on my nose began to look very boney and overall unattractive to me. So I decided it was time to get a nose job. No more wishing... READ MORE

I am 18 month post rhinoplasty procedure and I feel that the nasal tip has been over-resected and now denting inwards,I have no tip defining domes and the end of my nose feels very weak. The mid bridge section is wider than the tip creating a diamond shape as the bridge of my nose, it may be... READ MORE

One of the reasons I want to write about my experience on Real Self is it's another way of pushing myself into actually going through with it! Posting on here makes it a little more real, somehow. Unlike many people on this site, I haven't always despised my nose - in fact, I don't hate it now,... READ MORE

I decided to undergo the operation last year as i was at a point in my life where i could afford it and had researched all the questions that concerned me! During my research i came across Dr Ivo Gwanmesia who had great credentials and amazing reviews! To date, i am very happy with my choice of... READ MORE

Amazing job on my rhinoplasty! I couldn't have asked for a better result. I had a lot of questions and concerns (aesthetic, risks, recovery etc...). Dr Kolstad addressed them all and encouraged me to reach out at anytime if I had anymore concerns. He made me feel very comfortable and earned my... READ MORE

Hey all, my name is Lauren. I was a part of a domestic violence incident when the guy I was in a relationship with at the time punched me. He punched me twice, causing my nose to break in three places. There were many other warning signs I should have noticed that all lead up to this happening:... READ MORE

Hi guys, I have my rhinoplasty scheduled for April 21, 2016 at Bangkok plastic surgery clinic with dr.pichet. I've done quite a bit of research and I found pretty good reviews for their practice, plus it's about 1/4 of the cost for the surgery in Canada. Although it is a relativity easy... READ MORE

I did my primary rhinoplasty with Dr. Solomon in 2010. During these past 4 years, I've experienced nothing but physical and emotional pain, agony, and excruciating sense of guilt over choosing this doctor while I had a very negative gut feeling about him. From his reviews on this site and... READ MORE

Don't get me wrong, I don't think my nose is that bad but I think it can look better. I have a love hate relationship... READ MORE

Dr. Ghavami and I didn’t see eye to nose. He thinks my nose looks good while I think not only does it not look good, it looks worse than before surgery. He attempted to fix a deviated septum and refine a bulbous tip. There was slight improvement in the very upper part of my nose where there w... READ MORE
