Primary rhino looked good for 2 years, but 3 years post, HORRIBLE

My nose was never wide, but the tip was bulbous. I have wanted to refine the tip to be more attractive since I was sixteen years old. I was encouraged to wait until I was fully grown, which I did.

A plastic surgeon and friend of the family told me the Gunter Center (where Dr. Cochran operates) is the second-best rhinoplasty center in Dallas. I also did web research and was impressed by Dr. Cochran's before and after images. (I also scheduled a consultation with the purported best nose surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Rohrich, but I cancelled because I wanted to take a trip on that date).

Dr. Cochran was the only plastic surgeon (of the three I consulted with) who understood the look I wanted to achieve. He is very kind, respectful and professional in person. (I would point out that the other surgeons I consulted with were highly recommended and board-certified as well; they just didn't understand my aesthetic the way Dr. Cochran did.)

My operation (one week ago) went smoothly and my bandages came off yesterday. So far, I am convinced that no surgeon could have given me a better result. No one would ever be able to tell I've had a nose job, yet it is profoundly better than before. Once the swelling goes away completely I will update this review but I am already very, very impressed. I am so glad that I made this purchase. I believe Dr. Cochran is one of the most skilled out there.


I left a glowing review 9 days after my primary rhinoplasty with Dr. Cochran. If only I could've anticipated how much would change in the three years afterward.

Year 1: Looked fine
Year 2: Tip becoming sharper than I wanted, but still fine
Year 3: Extremely sharp pinched tip, horrible indentation and collapsed appearance....

This is horrible. I'm in distress about this...I really need a revision rhinoplasty expert. I've heard that Cochran may offer a revision for free, but honestly, going under his knife a second time sounds like madness to me.

This is so bad. I thought I did my research in picking Cochran, but still this horrible result.

After more research I am going to go with Dr. Rod J. Rohrich for my revision. I'm going to schedule my consultation with him soon. I'll update. Please wish me luck....

And everyone, please think very carefully about undergoing major plastic surgery like rhinoplasty! I now realize how risky, how complicated it truly is! If you feel you can live with your current nose, you may just want to keep it.

Dr. Cochran's bedside manner is excellent, but his results are awful and now I need a revision rhinoplasty. I could not possibly recommend this doctor to anyone.
