5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Sincere, Knowledgable, Warm, and Caring Doctor with Phenomenal Results! - Midlothian, VA

After struggling with my self-image over my nose for so long, when I got into the Air Force, I found Dr. Bridges and a way to make it all go away! Will I tell you it doesn't hurt, no! But the meds given after surgery help a lot. The pressure and pain from the swelling made car rides, baths, drying my hair, and getting dressed a chore, but EVEN with the amount of swelling after one week, my...

Breathing Easier. To Correct Malformation of Cartilage - Midlothian, VA

My nose surgery required rhinoplasty and septoplasty to the extent that the cartilege had to be removed and reconfigured in order to correct a malformation of cartilage that impeded free flow of air intake in the nasal cavity, particularly when exercising vigorously or when bothered with allergies or head colds. Sleeping was always a problem, especially when not propped up. Being past 50, I...

Rhinoplasty - Midlothian, VA

I'm in my early 40's and am very petite. I had a nose that just didn't fit with my face. It projected out way too far, had a hump on it and it pointed down when I smiled. I hated my profile and it really started to bother me as I aged, it seemed to grow biiger and drag my face down.

Excellent Care and Results - Midlothian, VA

My rhinoplasty was completed for cosmetic purposes only. My expectations were discussed at length ahead of time and the results were superb. The changes are not overexaggerated but rather exactly corrected the concerns/dislikes that I had. It was 100% worth the time/money and even the few days of discomfort!

Surgery Tomorrow and I Am Finally Freaking Out (Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant) - Virginia

You've got your Dad's nose! God bless my Dad but his nose is not his most pleasing characteristic. When I was in the Air Force I had scheduled a rhinoplasty but got out before I had a chance to get it done. Over the years I have visited many doctors and done a ton of research. I am now happily married to a man who tells me everyday that I am beautiful and that he loves me. He does not...

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty - Midlothian, VA

Dr Bridges did an excellent job. I had a rhinoplasty a couple years ago to shave down dorsal hump. With time, when I smiled, the nose collapsed a bit and would have an unsighlty droop. I didn't quite understand that mechanics of why it was happening but was hoping it could be fixed. Upon my consultion, Dr. Bridges suggested small implant to support and prevent collapsing which was exactly...

Rhinoplasty on "Difficult" Nose - Midlothian, VA

I've always hated my (wide, bulbous) nose, and it was getting worse as I got older. I'd seen several local surgeons and they agreed with my assessment but didn't want to attempt it because I also have thick skin and thin cartilage. I knew I'd never have a tiny nose, but I didn't see why I couldn't have a BETTER nose when I've seen other patients with this kind of nose who managed some kind of...

Great Results! - Midlothian, VA

I have always hated my nose, especially the tip. Dr. Bridges performed a closed rhinoplasty, and did an amazing job!! My results are natural looking (I still look like the same person) only I no longer hate my nose and I actually like my profile! Great results and I am so happy I chose Dr. Bridges.

Revision Rhinoplasty - Midlothian, VA

In 2012 I had a primary rhinoplasty by a very well-known local plastic surgeon. Following the surgery, it was apparent that too much cartilage had been removed from the tip of my nose leaving me with a pinched appearance. Dr. Bridges was recommended to me by another plastic surgeon. When I met Dr. Bridges I was so impressed with his ease, his assessment and his recommendation of what he...

27 at Time of Procedure, 1 Kid - Midlothian, VA

I got a rhinoplasty. Small hump on nose smoothed out. I was so worried about screwing up my generally beautiful face especially since my husband was strongly against it. But it all worked out. When the bandage came off after a week it was swollen and looked large and bad and was obviously not my nose. I didn't want to fly into hysterics, so I calmly said thank you and goodbye and went home to...
