This Mexican American woman said she was always embarrassed by the appearance of her nose and was subject to teasing about it when she was growing up. She described it as "banana-shaped." She also had nasal obstruction and took medication daily for this. She had large turbinates causing airway obstruction. She wanted a big difference, but at the same time wanted her nose to fit her ethnic background. After surgery, she was able to discontinue her nasal spray. She still has swelling in these photos taken 1 month after surgery.
