5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

22years Old - Houston, TX

I've always been self-conscience about my nose since I was a teenager.. I started noticing my nose having a slight division as I started getting older. This started when I was a child, I had an accident and fell and broke my nose but it wasn't noticeable until I started growing. I finally decided that it was time to do something about it because it also was long and pointy with a hump... I...

Needed Someone to Fix What Another Doctor Messed Up - Houston, TX

I had two previous rhinoplasties performed by another physician for breathing issues NOT cosmetic. Both failed and left me looking visibly disfigured and my breathing issue was worse afterwards. Dr. Alford performed a revision rhinoplasty that gave me my life back. His attention to detail was incredible.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty - Houston, TX

When I was 15 I had a septoplasty and rhinoplasty along with the removal of an enlarged turbinate to allow me to breathe properly and correct the crooked appearance of my nose. Approximately, 20 years later, I noticed my nose was becoming crooked again and I was having increased breathing and sinus pressure issues. In the past year I also noticed an increase in the frequency of sinus...

Best in Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery. Houston, TX

After a botched rhinoplasty in the UK I consulted with Dr. Hamilton in Houston, TX. He recommended that he not perform the surgery as it was quite a complex case, and therefore suggested going to a specialist in revision surgeries for the nose, Dr. Alford. Earlier this year Dr. Alford operated on my nose: the bump is gone and the tip is straight. What else could one ask for?

Women in my Late 50's Who Wanted a Fresher Look and a New Neck. Houston, TX

Dr. Alford is the best. He explains everything and talks through the pros and cons. He cares about you as a person and only wants what's best for you. I had a face lift that look so natural, because it was not too tight or pulled looking. I also had my neck lifted that gave my chin definition. I had not been happy with my chin/neck my whole lift and now it has a much better look. The...

Much Better - Houston, TX

I had a rhinoplasty from another doctor 10 years ago. Although my nose was much improved I noticed my tip was two different heights and my breathing was a little impeded. Dr. Alford was able to correct the problem for me. When Dr. Alford opened my nose I actually had multiple fractures in my cartilage. All was reapaired and I am so happy I decided to choose him as my surgeon. The cosmetic...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Looking Bright After Botox - Houston, TX

I was interested in getting Botox after feeling like my appearance was looking tired. I'm exceptionally pleased with my outcome.
