I recently met with Dr Oelbrandt to discuss getting a few procedures done to my face.

Hi RS! So, I'm writing this under African American Rhinoplasty, even though I'm still not 100% sure I will do it.

I have always thought my nose was a little too wide for my face. I've never hated my nose but I have always been conscious of how much it affects the way I look. I've been thinking about rhinoplasty seriously for 2 years and finally decided to go for it. I'm not looking to completely change my... READ MORE

My nose was OK. I wanted a more defined bridge. I looked up lots of aa rhinoplasty and found Dr Manuel Guttirez. Yes, I did read all of his aa jobs and to be honest they weren't good reviews. Only 1 girl's nose job that he had done looked like what I wanted, so I took my chance with him. Best... READ MORE

I've never really liked my nose, and it took me a few years to really identify exactly what I don't like about it. I feel the tip is too bulbous, the dorsal hump combined with my naturally deep bridge is a bit weird, and the cartilage portion of the nose is just a bit too wide for my liking.... READ MORE

Im a young black male that is planning on getting a nose job in the near future. My ideal nose is one that looks natural to my face/ethnic background and retains its masculine feature.
