Like so many others, after spending a year following the reviews here and on other sites for Dr. Cochran I finally scheduled my consultation and appointment. Honestly, I feel so confident in this office right now! They are very thorough and have been very pleasant to work with so far. Dr. Cochran helped to quiet some of my anxiety upon meeting him. I've been contemplating rhinoplasty for over a decade. When I was 13 I broke my nose and I'm confident that due to my then routine of 3 hours a day in goggles, swimming laps, shaped and defined my nose to have quite the "hump" it has now. I don't look like my twin sister in this manner and it's silly, but disappointing. So, here I am, getting so very anxious for the 15th to come and go without any bumps in the road. Once completed I will post before and after photos for you all reviewing and considering this office for your work. :)

First I want to say, having wonderful family and friends to support you will make your healing process that much easier. Today was my surgery and I am not telling any lie when I say that the disposition of every single person I encountered was supportive, warm, and receptive to answering any questions. The team at the Texas Insitute was incredible! You can tell these folks like their jobs! Dr. Cochran was as warm and professional as ever and I wouldn't hesitate to trust him! I am quite mess today following surgery. Nauseated, in some pain and I'm in and out of sleep. Due to the extent of work I imagine had to be done, the intubation tube did rather upset my esophagus and I'm decorated in bandages. Dr. C said that he was very proud of how my nose looked prior to swelling, so I'm excited for the next 7 days to fly by! I'm very happy in my decision to finally do this. I honestly experienced so much anxiety prior to this that I was unsure about going through with it. However, knowing that after 10 plus years of wanting this, that it will be worth every penny and groggy afternoon. I hope this review helps! I will post after photos when I look a little less frightening!

Cast and stitches are off

Amazing work! Dr. C removed my cast and stitches yesterday. I am stunned by the work he did. Amazing! My profile is now exactly as I wanted, streamline but not too curvy. No more bump! He also repaired some severe scarring I incurred as a child due to a dog attack. My right nostril always had an unusual appearance and was tiny compared to the left. He was able to utilize the tissue in my nose to repair the shape.
It will take some time before both nostrils are even but he gave me a realistic plan for the next year to help in this process of balancing. Choosing Dr. Cochran for my rhinoplasty is one of the best decisions I have ever made. His whole team was above expectations, the surgical institute was wonderful! I really admire this groups
down to Earth demeanor and constantly positive energy. I wouldn't look any further when choosing a surgeon. I ran into one of his patients as we were entering the building, she and her mom were so happy with the results the young gal had, her nose was beautiful! I've talked to a few other patients of Dr. C's here on
Realself and thus far, not a single bad or unideal experience has been mentioned. If you elect to have rhinoplasty prepare yourself emotionally, this can be a difficult process for your significant other. Take two friends with you if you can, your loved one is going to need emotional support as they look after you in Dallas too.
Your surgery may not be the same as mine, but I've coughed up a lot of blood (from my sinuses). I am very obsessive about cleanliness especially with the after care. Be sure you wash your hands 20 seconds+ before you do anything with your nose. Steer clear of doors, friends arm space, and keep jumping pets at bay! I will update my photos soon. If you have any questions about my procedure I am happy to answer! Not everyone's will be the same, but I feel confident that anyone is in good hands with Dr. Cochran. ^_^


A year later

I just wanted to let anyone reading this know most of the numbness is now gone from my nose. Around the nostrils and septum there is still a little but it in no way is bothersome. The spot where I assume the change was made has a sharp feeling bone, like a deep V on one side. This isn't something you can see but to feel it is a little strange. I have forgotten about my nose which is the best thing that could ever happen to me. I'm still so happy I made this decision, it was worth the money for sure!
Dallas Facial Plastic Surgeon

I chose him because he specializes in rhinoplasty and the down to Earth vibe so many people reviewing found in him. They were right about his demeanor, Dr. Cochran is very nice and straight forward. He was very clear about expectations and possible outcomes in our consult.
