HI everyone! I had rhinoplasty 20 years ago in the...

HI everyone! I had rhinoplasty 20 years ago in the small town I was living in at the time in Alberta. I was thrilled at the results then because I didn't know better lol (there was only 1 plastic surgeon in town) and he got rid of the hump I had on the bridge. Well, for the last decade or so I have noticed my nose looked kind of unnatural and funny. It had a double break point they call it and my nostrils were quite visible which I did not like and overall it still looked pretty big. So after raising three kids to their tweens, it was Mommy's turn to do something major for herself. lol I am reeeeeeeally happy with the results so far!!! The doctor I went to was veeery experienced and knew exactly what he needed to do to rectify what the other doctor had done. (The previous doctor had put cartilage in strange locations which made my profile look sharp and pointy in 2 spots.) My current doctor here in Vancouver, softened my profile, reduced the overall size and minimized my nostril size. I looooove it!!! And the photo I am showing you is from only 1 week post-op!!! So, it is still swollen in the photo and it will settle down even more and be even tinier. I am thrilled and look forward to prancing around the neighbourhood with my new nose for the "next" half (and more I hope!) of my life!! lol

AT 21 DAYS POST-OP!!!! And really LOOOOOOVING my nose!!!!!!

OMG you guys i am soooooooooo happy i did this!!! WOOHOO! -sorry, as you can tell i am quite pleased! -i can't thank my surgeon enough for making my nose look sooooo natural and great (sorry i think so at least....lol :) ) which was a very difficult surgery- he had to remove all this strange cartilage placement, had to control my excessive bleeding (i lost 1/2 pint of blood) and the surgery took 2 1/2 extra hours- anyhow, i am really happy- here are some new photos- the doctor said at 6 weeks my nose will be 90% of how it will look permanently- so i will post final photos then guys- thanks! :)

21 DAYS POST-OP -shrunk even more I think! I love it!


Sorry guys. Hope you are not getting too sick of my updates! lol



Vancouver Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr.Dubeta is HANDS DOWN the expert and master of perfection for any facial plastic surgery you may need. I can confidently say this not just from MY OWN experience having had 3 surgeries with him, but from the many many patients I have seen walk in and out his offices, both before and after over the last 8 months. Do not be put off by his picture portfolio in his office, with old photos from the last 2 decades, which I have read some people criticize and said they were scared away by it. Who in the world cares if the photos are from several years ago? The results of his work are what count, silly people. All of the "after" pictures are natural looking. Unlike many doctor's who display modern photos with fancy computer software and in over the top offices, but their work is subpar. Dr.Dubeta does not have to try to impress (aka persuade or trick) people by having a slick modern office etc. The only thing you should care about in regards to a surgeon manipulating your most important features visible to the world (your one and only face) is the SKILL of the surgeon. And Dr.Dubeta is THE PREEMINENT master. You will find NO ONE BETTER THAN him, I guarantee it!!! He gets referred all the most difficult situations, both medical and cosmetic, which happen to go together. And this is why he is booked solid at hospitals and in his private surgical clinic. I feel so grateful I found him and had the good fortune to receive his fine work. And I hope you have the same good fortune!
