Septorhinoplasty/turbinate Reduction

In the past few months I have started to develop significant breathing issues. It started where I had a hard time getting enough oxygen while exercising.

Septoplasty Procedure Done by One of the Best Doctors

About 15 to 20 years ago I had an accident in which I fell on my face. This caused a nose deviation. Later on, the symptoms of this deviation started to show up. Not breathing right, horrible headaches that could last all day. It was due to my nose's airway not being straightened and thus air is... READ MORE

24 Years Old, Septhorhinoplasty - Charlotte, NC

I have always been very uncomfortable with my nose, especially from profile view. It was clearly too large for my face early on, but my parents insisted I'd grow into. (I did not.)

My Experience - Mesa, AZ

I am very unsatisfied with the outcome of it all. I had a septoplastic surgery on my nose. I first researched on how good of a surgeon dr Hobgood was.

Car Accident Nightmare--Broken Nose Repair

I was rear-ended in October of 2012. The air bag did not deploy and my face hit the steering wheel. The impact broke my sunglasses and my nose.
