Revision Rhinoplasty, Male 27 - San Diego, CA

I usually don't write reviews, but I believe in matters like these where you will have to make a life time decision every one should share their experience.
I saw doctor Hilinski a month ago for a revision rhinoplasty consultation, I had had my nose done eight years ago by a different doctor, and wasn't 100% satisfied with the results, I felt my nose was still wide. So I went to see Dr. Hilniski after I had done my research and was convinced that he's one of the best. I told him what I was really looking for, which is a thinner bridge and a smaller base, I also wanted to add more definition to the tip but he suggested not to do so and to leave the tip as it is and told me that it would look better after we bring the nostrils in and reshape the bones. After I left his office, he sent me a picture of how my nose would approximately look like after the surgery and I was sold because it looked very realistic and very close to the end results that I was looking for.
I scheduled an appointment for the surgery, and I went there the day of the surgery really relaxed for some reason! As if I was going to get my hair cut or something. I trusted dr. Hilinski and his staff on my life. Every one the day of the surgery was nice and warm from the nurse to the anesthesiologist to the doctor himself. The surgery took about 3 hours and when I woke up I was nauseated, it wasn't the best feeling ever, the worst part lasted for like ten minutes and after that I felt a bit better. Went home that day and took my pills as suggested and cleaned my nose for the next few days.
It's five days now and I just came back from his office after I had removed the cast and the bandages. I know it's very early to tell, but I think I will fall in love with my new nose, it's still very swollen, but keep in mind that this is my second rhinoplasty and I know that after the swollen subsides it'd look perfect.
I will keep every one posted and come back here in ten days to let you know if I'm right or if got very disappointed.
