Septoplasty Needed! - Denver, CO

At 31 I had just assumed I would go my entire life without correctly breathing through my nose. I have had 2 corrective surgeries in the past to aid in breathing to no avail.

I was 32 and needed septoplasty. I was always insecure about my overprojected nose and also asked for rhinoplasty

I met with Dr. Fedok and was immediately impressed with his work. Dr.Fedok was very thorough and explained the procedure to me in great detail.

Septorhinoplasty at Age 23 - Thornhill, ON

I never felt like I could breath through my nose as well as I should be able to, especially at night. I also had a large, bulbous nose that I was never comfortable with.

Waited a Very Long Time to Do my Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty, but Dr. Kotler Was Worth the Wait. - Beverly Hills, CA

I am 41 years old and I have always been self-conscious about my deviated septum. I felt my nose was too large for my face and it took away from my facial features.

Facial Asymmetry (Hemifacial Microsomia) - Maxilliary Osteotomy & Open Rhinoplasty Surgeries

** Please note - the photos I have loaded that have "before & after" images have been manipulated in Photoshop by me.

It's All Finally in Motion...- Saskatoon, sk

When I was a child, my brother and I were playing a game where we would run in opposite directions really fast towards the wall. The goal was to stop right before hitting the wall. I hit the wall though. Hard. My parents just hugged me and said to be careful. My nose grew strangely since then. I... READ MORE
