My Rhinoplasty Experience - Dominican Republic, DO

Let me start by saying that before finalizing this...

Let me start by saying that before finalizing this procedure with Dr. Hernandez I did a lot of research and I'm very pleased with my decision. I am American of african descent but my parents are from Dominican Republic so my decision to get this procedure done in DR was based on the fact that I have family there and pricing played a big factor in my decision...as well as I know that despite the rumors doctors in DR are very good at what they do. 

My decision to go with Dr. Hernandez for my Rhinoplasty was based on his patient's reviews and every time I Google best Plastic Surgeons in DR his name always came up...when I emailed him the first time...he responded immediately with details. Laura his assistant is very professional and super friendly...she's an asset to his office. I showed up two days before my surgery to do blood work and to also consult with Dr. Hernandez before the surgery. The clinic is located in a very good and safe area...not to mention very clean and professional...the clinic is located in a building that is shared with many other plastic surgeons...which for me made me feel safe just in case anything may go wrong...your literally in a building with professionals all over. I must say that Dr. Hernandez is a straight to the point physician...he's very professional but keeps it 100% with you. 

I wanted to also get a butt lift done the same day but my iron level was not at the level needed to get both procedures done so he let me know I had to pick one. I appreciated that because I know that other doctors just for the money would have taken the risk. The day of the surgery I was his first patient, so I had to be at the clinic for 5a.m. the nurses that welcomed me were super sweet.. and no I was not nervous at all...more excited then anything else!!!! Dr. Hernandez showed up maybe 30mins after in my room. He asked me how I was feeling and guaranteed me that everything would be to my satisfaction. I remember he gave me a pill to relax me and after that I swear I don't know what happened between me swallowing the pill and waking up after the procedure!!! I know when I got up and looked around the room...I was wondering why the surgery still hadn't taken place and when I went to touch my noise...that's when I realized it was done!!!! It was covered completely with bandage ...my family came in shortly after and the nurse handed me my discharge paperwork along with prescription and instructions to follow before my follow up visit...the next five days went very well...I stayed in doors, swelling around my eyes and face was very light, I didn't swell up much at all!!!! No blue or black eye!!! And trust me my noise was very wide and flat so I know bones had to be broken...but Dr. Hernandez did a very good job....anytime I started to feel pain all I did was take my pain medication and I was well again. 

My follow up visit went well...Dr. Hernandez was super friendly...he removed all the bandages and tape from my noise...I was able to see my new noise finally...I must be honest...I was not pleased at first...but I was warned of this by Dr. Hernandez and many other ppl online who also had this procedure done....my noise was huge...Dr. Hernandez told me it would take a few weeks to see the swelling go down and at least anywhere from 6 months to a year to see the results of the surgery!!! Indeed he was right....it's now been 9 months and I'm very happy with my new noise...no one but my family knows that I got a Rhinoplasty done!!! So my friends and others that know me from before my Rhinoplasty only say "you are looking beautiful" "did you do something different to yourself?" I like that Dr. Hernandez made a change to my face but not so drastic that people can tell exactly what had been done!!!! He is strongly recommended...and I'm going back to him in March to get some work done on my butt!!! I know this review was long but I hope it helps others who are thinking of getting a Rhinoplasty done or any other procedures done by Dr. Hernandez!!! Good luck!!!
