Hello! I had my surgery on May 24th. I have been self conscience over my nose since middle school. I always thought my nose was too large and too long for my face. I am so happy I went through with rhinoplasty. I had very few supporters on my decision. I still wanted to have it done because I knew it would give me confidence. I really researched on what surgeon I wanted. I found Dr. Imola. I saw countless good reviews about him. My consultation was wonderful. I felt very comfortable and confident with him. The actual surgery went well. I was expecting pain afterwards, but it really was just congestion that was uncomfortable. I bruise very easily, and I did have a lot of bruising and swelling. After a week I looked a lot more like myself. I am now a little over 3 weeks post op, and I really love my results so far. I know I'm still swollen, but I already feel like my new nose frames my face better.

Hey all, not much of a difference from my last post. Just waiting for my tip swelling to go down. I know you should stay away from salty food, but I do love food fast! Anyways, hope everyone is doing well:)
I saw another patient of his had this on their profile and I had to share it. Dr. Imola just won the Best Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Enhancement award at THE Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas! http://www.cofps.com/media. His picture was taken with plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon from the television series, The Doctors. It feels great to know I was in good hands!
over 2 months post op!
Everyday I'm liking my nose more and more!
6 months plus
I know it's been months since I've updated, sorry! I still notice swelling has gone down which is great! I think my nose is probably done with any obvious change though. I heard it can take up to a full year for swelling to go away. There is some numb areas on the right side of my nose, but I'm not worried.
Over a year update
It has been over a year now since my surgery! Wow time flys! I wanted to update and share some new photos taken over the weekend. Honestly since 6 months ago, my swelling still went down! It has taken a long time but I'm alright with it!
