5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I had a very long pointing nose. I love my results! It's perfect, exactly what I wanted. I'm 6 months post surgery now. All the swelling is gone and I'm very happy. Well worth it. The surgery itself was not painful. I was home the same day. The 2nd and 3rd day breathing was a little tough, but you just need to breathe out of your mouth.
