Rhinoplasty

I had a really bad perspective of my physical appearance of my nose, since it was flatten due of missing of cartilage on the tip of my nose. Also I was getting difficulties in breathing through my nose. Therefore I decide to do a rhinoplasty. The functional part has really improved with the rhinoplasty from a scale of 1-10, I'll say 10. The plastic part is very well done, I'm getting so much compliments, and also it really helped me with my self-esteem.

ps; Dr.Alexander and me, decided to get cartilage out of my rib, in order to get a more natural look rather than using fake bone. Also keep in mind on the photo on the after results I've done previously a jaw augmentation. Two more things, throughout my recovery i didn't got any bluer than what my pictures show, which is impressive since i thought I'll had a very blued faced. And my nose didn't hurt at all, the only complain was my rib but with the medication it is supportable although very very annoying.

The truth is

At first, Dr.Alexander is very nice, answer your questions very thoughtfully, and is eassy to communicate with. When I got the surgery done, I was exited and I was really influence on what the surgeon would tell me such as about 6 months I will have a better view of my nose, as I told him the nose seems bigger than what I expected, I also noticed a bump on the upper side of my nose but he said it might be just the inflation of the recent surgery. After 6 months, I revisited him and we discause again the bump and he said "I actually like it better like that, it gives you a more masculin look" I don't know how he has the audacity to say that, since at the very beginning I told him I did not wanted it, I even paid for the service. Also just after having the surgery the middle part of my upper gums was numb and I couldn't taste anything; he told me that with the time it will go but he don't understand why as he did not touch any nerves that could affect that part. Now after a year and 2 months my gums is still numb althought the taste came back but I feel like food doesn't tast as much as it used to, and i still suffer from the right side of my nose to be constantly blocked. Another thing that also hurted me is now that i've been trying to contact him he doesn't reply anymore....
