5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

A breath of fresh air, at night.

The improvement to my breathing was immediate, right after surgery, and continues every day. It has been a month and the benefit I most appreciate is the quality of sleep I now enjoy.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Very Satisfied Patient - Seattle, WA

As I said above, I couldn't be more pleased with my treatment and results from my experience with Dr. Michael Nuara. He took a very challenging rhinoplasty revision and gave me a gorgeous nose. He knew what to do to remove the bags under my eyes and tighten them up so I don't end up with droopy eyelids down the road. He listened well to what I wanted (ie: fuller face) and found a way to give it to me. He's a fabulous Doc and a wonderful man -- someone you can trust with your face.
