I don't write a lot of reviews, but I had to write one for Dr. Elam. I recently had an ethnic septorhinoplasty done with him, and my results are amazing. I did a lot of research before deciding on Dr Elam, and I met a lot of other doctors that do Ethnic procedures. But after speaking with Dr Elam, and him telling me about his extensive work on African American's down in New Orleans, I decided to go with him. He showed me a digital pic of the "after" look, and I'm currently 2 weeks out and looking closer to it already.
The swelling in my tip is still there, but as I've read and been told, it will go down over time.
But the procedure went smoothly, although I did bleed a lot. M nose was packed, so the first night was uncomfortable, but not painful. In fact, I really wasn't in ANY pain what-so-ever through out. My cast came off last week, and so far smooth sailing. Also, due to the Septoplasty part, my breathing is excellent! No more snoring for me! I'll update again at the 3 month and 6 month mark to let everyone know how it's going.
