33 Have Wanted a Nose Job Since As Long As I Can Remember - Beverly Hills, CA

I had the rhinoplasty 10 days ago and am freaking out because it looks too rotated up, my nostrils are uneven, and my smile is NOT normal looking! I wanted it to still look like my nose but not as long and a closer to my face. Now it looks like a lions nose almost. Its like lip to nose, no middle area and my upper teeth and gums still ache!

4 WEEKS POST...

I am not happy. I am depressed and very regretful. I should have left my nose alone. I wanted small changes and the result has effected my whole face. I wanted a small bump shaved down on the side of my bridge and the tip refined so it wasn't as long. My WHOLE nose is different. It looks like it was smooched into my face. It is wider, my tip and nostrils are wider, there are creases on the sides of my nostrils I didn't have before, my upper lip is being pushed down, and it is more hollow under my eyes. I feel like I look like an alien. I realllllly hope this is still just swelling!!!!!

I am soooooooo depressed. I have started therapy because I have completely withdrawn myself socially and pretty much publicly. The only thing I do is go to work and necessary errands. Dr Ghavami has ruined my life. My nose is longer, wider bridge and nostrils, and smooched in and down on my face. My nose and upper lip are almost a centimeter lower than before. My smile barely shows my teeth. I look like I have droopy smooch nose. Everyone at work looks at me weird. Friends don't know what to say except, " he can fix it right?"...
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon

My initial consultation was great. He explained everything well and made me feel confident that he could achieve the nose I wanted. When he removed the cast and tubes 4 days ago I expressed my concerns and he seemed annoyed that I would even be concerned at that point because I was still swollen. I feel a good Dr would have understood my mental state and that this was my first nose job and been more sympathetic. He was rough when taping me and removing/applying things, and seemed in a rush to be done with my appt. On top of this, my insurance would have covered a portion of the bill because he also performed a septoplasty and turbinoplasty for my breathing and he did not accept my insurance he said because he wouldn't have made as much money. I hope that he is right and my nose will go up and inwards. We shall see.
