I would like to say that overall, if you do not have complications, this surgery is not as bad as people are saying. If you read what people say online, you will be prepared for the worst, but know it is not that terrible. I had this surgery done because I've had sinus problems and chronic... READ MORE

Great posts by everyone. I am having surgery in less than a week. I had a rhinoplasty approximately 20 years ago and have had a lot of problems breathing on one side ever since. My septum is way over to the right and I get very little air flow up that side. Although my profile is significantly... READ MORE

I had septoplasty and rhinoplasty a few days ago in Saudi Arabia. The septoplasty was because my nose had been broken a few times from fighting in High school and the doctor stated was severely damaged. The rhinoplasty was to remove the small hump on my nose, not for cosmetic reasons, but... READ MORE

I got a septoplasty and rhinoplasty, and was very pleased to learn he could work on both the inside and the outside of my nose.  The day of the surgery (my first ever surgery), he was a very calming influence. Later that night he called me to follow up and provide a few more bits of... READ MORE

I have had congestion and low airflow in my right nostril for as long as I can remember. I went to an allergist who informed me that I should consider having a septoplasty to correct my deviated septum. I saw three surgeons who agreed with the initial diagnosis. I decided to have my septoplasty... READ MORE

This is a procedure I have wanted to do forever. My mum had a nose job age 16, my dad has a big nose and my younger sister is having her nose done in August. I decided to have mine when I hit 16, but was not allowed to be put under general anesthetic due to a heart condition. I had to have heart... READ MORE

I am 41 year old Medical Engineer . for a long time I have had breathing difficulties particularly at bed time. I would not say it was a severe life altering difficulty but it would sometimes drive me crazy as I could only sleep on one side otherwise I would almost choke .All the ENT specialists... READ MORE

I had my dorsal hump reduction (part rhinoplasty) done because I have always been self conscious and embarrassed over my profile. I had my septoplasty done because during my consultation Dr. Pryor explained the damage to my septum would continue to cause my nose to collapse as I aged. The... READ MORE

I broke my nose as a child and have had a crooked nose and difficulty breathing since. The breathing seemed to be getting worse, so I finally went to an ENT doc, who suggested I also talk to a plastic surgeon about fixing the crookedness of my nose. I did, and decided on the above procedure... READ MORE

Met with Dr Chatham for a consultation for a severely deviated septum and difficulty breathing. My issues were the result of a broken nose as a child, possibly a broken nose a 2nd time, and a previous mostly unsuccessful surgery. It has now been 2 months since my surgery, and I am very pleased... READ MORE

Dr. Karam and his professional staff provide exceptional care and attention to their patients! I had a deviated septum repaired and my breathing has improved ten fold. The office is efficiently run and the Dr. Karam is thorough and detailed about the procedures he performs ensuring you are... READ MORE

Last October i underwent surgery to correct my sinus's and to reverse damage to my nose, which resulted in small lumps forming on the bridge of my nose following an accident. I was suffering with severe migraines and constant tension in my head. I cant even put into words the difference the... READ MORE

Hi RS! I am scheduled for a septum and turbinate reduction in 2 days. I have never been able to breathe through my nose very well, and as a result have been a mouth breather. You will often catch me zoning out with my mouth hanging open. Not cute. Working out is challenging because you... READ MORE

I had Septoplasty - Rhinoplasty & Turbinate Reduction around 2 months ago, and the turbinates in one nostril are still quite enlarged and i asked my surgeon about it and he said, i should give it 6 months to wait for the final results.... I would like to hear from some nasal surgeons if... READ MORE

I wanted a lower angle and a straighter and more symmetrical nose. Dr. Khorsandi assured me that he would be able to accomplish all these goals during the pre-surgery consultation. However, to make a long story short, he did not accomplish any of these goals. Also, he was very nice before the... READ MORE

You can trust Dr. Robert Kotler. You can respect him and his whole staff as well. I adore him! His administrator Mary deserves praise as well. I felt completely safe and cared for by her during my follow-ups. Every individual that helps run his office is respectable. I am grateful and pleased... READ MORE

For two years I could only breath out of one nostril, the other or neither. After deciding that the cons of using a nasal decongestant spray for such a period of time probably is going to kick me in the ass one day I bit the bullet. I'm currently sitting in bed feeling a bit miserable as over... READ MORE
