Rhinoplasty After 10 Years of Consideration

I've been dissatisfied with my nose for as long as I can remember, but I was always too nervous to take the plunge. I couldn't find the right doctor, the right time, or the courage. Earlier this year, I discovered RealSelf and began combing through the pages and pages of reviews to learn as much as I could about the procedure and doctors in my area. I finally found a few doctors that I felt...

I breathe like a human again

Dr. Waterman helped me make a great decision regarding my health. Surgery was the only way to fix my deviated septum and straighten a long-time broken crooked nose. I can breathe evenly from both sides again! The scar is very minimal and the operating room experience was quick and painless.

18 Years Old with Broken Nose - Renton, WA

Dr. Waterman explained what work needed to be done and he went for the procedure for the surgery. He was patient and answered any questions that I had. The staff that he has are great, they're very friendly, nice and will welcome you. They are also very patient. I had to change my surgery date a couple of time and the staff understood and helped me set a new appointment. The aftercare of the surgery was good, the staff made sure I was feeling well enough to go home. Overall Dr. Waterman and his staff were very professional and made sure I was taken care of.
