Dr. Portuese is Amazing! He exceeded all my expectations.
I had Rhinoplasty 3 years ago, immediately after surgery I knew I would need a revision. To much cartilage was removed from my right nostril, my columella hung down to far, and the bridge was slightly swooped. I was told by the previous surgeon to give it a year he said it will correct itself. Well, that Dr soon retired. At year 2 I started consulting around, at that time I realized how much of a specialty Rhinoplasty is! Just because a plastic surgeon works on faces it does not mean they know how to perform Rhinoplasty. At my various consults I was told "maybe they can fix my concerns, but I do run the risk of it getting worse. I even submitted my photos to the TV show Botched. They responded back... Then I met Dr. Portuese through a referral from another surgeon. Dr. Portuese pointed out all my concerns before I even had to say anything! He saw what I saw, and with absolute confidence he said I can fix it. He was so kind and reassuring. I immediately felt comfortable and excited. He explained in detail what he would need to do, which included taking cartilage from my ear to build my right nostril. Dr. Portuese is a very skilled surgeon with so much experience specializing in Rhinoplasty, he was confident you could feel it. I didn't even wait to hear anymore from Botched, I scheduled my surgery!:) Today I am 3 weeks post opp. I am beyond happy! I feel so thankful. Dr. Portuese is truly the absolute best! I took so many photos through out my journey. I will post a few below. I am more than happy to answer anyone's questions, but please be assured if you are considering Rhinoplasty you want the best Doctor, and it's Dr. Portuese.
