African American Rhinoplasty

As you can see my nose completely overwhelms my face. It has always been a part of me that I've struggled to accept. I have searched far and wide and have only found one doctor who seems promising for my ethnic nose. Doc yap. Most doctors who attempt to deal with noses similar to mine have... READ MORE

Ethnic Rhinoplasty .....finally did it!

I'm not sure if i like it yet. I didn't want a drastic change. I still wanted to look recognizable but without the bulbous tip. I didn't have any bone work done. I still have stitches and face is still swollen. I go back Friday to have the stitches removed. I'm nervous. I just hope I made the... READ MORE

Ethnic Rhinoplasty with Gortex Implant.

After years of wanting rhinoplasty, I mustered up the courage to try medical tourism. I found Dr Levi, and contacted him in a whim as I had surgery planned with another Dr in The PH. Dr. Levi fully answered my questions and was very detailed as far as how he would achieve the look I was going... READ MORE

My Ethnic Rhinoplasty , After Years of Searching . Best Desicion I've Ever Made!! - Westfield, NJ

It had been an emotional roller coaster over the years trying to find the right surgeon. 6 years and countless consultations.

Day 7

Splint comes off tomorrow. I'm both nervous and excited. I will be able to wash my face properly instead of using baby wipes! I think it would be nice to finally get out the house, and do some shopping. I've been holed up for an entire week now. It's been almost 3 weeks since surgery. Well,... READ MORE

26 Year Old Wanted to Get This Done - Bedminster, NJ

I am a 26 year old female who has always been self conscious about the size of nose. It's always disproportionate to the rest of my features (broad, bulbous, no definition). I have always been trolling on sites, wishing that i would finally go through with it. I'm so excited to finally do this.... READ MORE

Long awaited happiness

First things first...I can't get over how amazing my nose looks. Every time I look in the mirror I feel happy and that is something I'm completely unaccustomed to. I want to go through my entire Rhinoplasty journey from start to finish, however, I could easily be here all night. So for now, I... READ MORE

Not happy -Ethnic Rhinoplasty - Dr Oelbrandt, Belgium

I recently met with Dr Oelbrandt to discuss getting a few procedures done to my face. My main concern was my nose and how it spreads when I smile, I wanted a tip refinement and my nostrils brought it, he discussed how this would be achieved with an open rhinoplasty and showed me what I would...

Island Hopeful

I'm a 23 year old woman of Afro-Caribbean descent interested in rhinoplasty. I love the ethnic shape of my nose, but I dislike the size/width of my nostrils & hope to have them reduced. Growing up, it was always nice to have something that nodded towards my ancestry and visibly linked me to my... READ MORE

Rhinoplasty Review Dr Oelbrandt - Brussels, Belgium

I have wanted a nose job for about 10years. I dislike the overall size of my nose and my wide nostrils. My nostrils are my main concern. If I could change the absolute minimum it would the nostrils. I do love my profile though and wouldn’t change that. I don’t find myself generally una... READ MORE

Celeb nose job.

I have been researching for yrs for perfect Dr for African American rhinoplasty. After extensive research, I narrowed it down to Dr. Ghamvami $12k and Dr Jason Hamilton $9k. I thought both Drs were pricey but it was worth it to have complete satisfaction. Then lo and behold on RealSelf I found... READ MORE

17 Years of Thinking About It - New Jersey

I consulted with Dr. Burnett in maybe April/June. It took me 2 months and 1 other consult to decide if he was for me. He does all open rhinos and I decided he would be able to give me dramatic enough results for this bulbous honker of mine. The office was relaxed but professional all at once. He... READ MORE

39 Years Old. New York, NY

My nose implant is diagonal and has been since my cast was removed. My doctor is acting nonchalant about the ordeal. What should I do? I'm not sure if implants are beneficial to patients who has thick skin. The third procedure I had an implant was also used but it was crooked at the very top.... READ MORE

Finally Did It!

For so long now I've just been an observer here on Realself, the fact that I actually went through with it is still surreal! I'd been debating how to go about documenting my experience/ journey and ultimately decided to begin my review after my procedure. I figured I'd save all of us the last... READ MORE
