I wanted a thinner bridge & a more refined tip. Also, I had breathing problems due to enlarged turbinates.
I've never had a really big issue with my nose; I have always liked my profile & 3/4 view, but have always wanted it to be a little thinner head-on with more of a defined tip. I've also had breathing problems resulting from enlarged turbinates. So my most important criteria in my search for a surgeon were natural looking, subtle results and experience treating breathing problems like mine. I came across Dr. Daniel's website and was thoroughly impressed. His work doesn't look like "work". No cookie cutter noses, simply improved versions of each patient's nose that are in harmony with the rest of the face. He also has experience correcting various breathing problems.
When I had my consultation with Dr. Daniel I was impressed that he instinctively knew what I wanted to correct. He showed me photos of patients who had "before" noses similiar to mine & explained the procedure he used to thin out the bridge and create a more refined tip. He also assured me that he could alleviate a good portion of my breathing issues by reducing my turbinates during the procedure.
I am currently 6 months post-op and couldn't be happier! **First, I CAN BREATHE! I can also smell a bit better and have found that, for the most part, I no longer need my allergy spray.
It's still my nose, only SOO MUCH CUTER!! People I knew in high school have commented, "You look great, even better than when we were in school!"(They have no idea about my nose, only that for some reason I look better than before!)
