53 Y/o Male, Rhinoplasty. White Plains, NY

I have been incredibly self-conscious of my nose...

I have been incredibly self-conscious of my nose since middle school and have wanted to do the procedure since that time (so 40 years), as I have always felt that it held me back in many ways (and I was made fun of countless times during middle school, high school, college and even in the workforce). I played soccer in college and competitively up until about 7 years ago, and I could never find the right time. Even though you might think I have lived this long with it, so why bother, last year I decided that I needed to have the procedure so I wouldnt have to feel self-conscious for the rest of my life. I searched online for a doctor, and I was hoping that I could find someone relatively close to where I live. After reviewing many doctors on this site, I decided to visit Dr. Ciardullo, and I immediately felt that he was the right doctor to do the procedure. He is professional, experienced, takes his time to explain expectations, and he met with me multiple times to address my concerns and evaluate what I thought would be an ideal outcome. Although I was nervous about the procedure, simply because I feared that I would come out of it looking as though I had a "nose job", he assured me that it would look as natural as possible. And, when he evaluated my nose (biggest issues were dorsal hump and droopy tip), his first instincts in terms of what he said he would do were exactly what I felt needed to be done. I did show him many photos of what I thought looked good as well as bad in terms of outcomes (of other doctors), and when I found a before and after that was close to my situation, he asked me to bring the photo to the surgery.

After the surgery, I could tell right away that he nailed it, and I was eager to get the cast off (which is the toughest part of post-surgery only because it was quite itchy; I had very little pain). When I eventually got the cast off, it was one of the best feelings of my life because Dr. Ciardullo absolutely changed my life and could not have done a better job. It is better than I expected, and NO ONE has said ANYTHING to me...NOTHING. Yet, I notice a HUGE difference, and my confidence is up 1000%.

Some people travel all over the country to have this procedure done; if you live in the New York/Westchester/Fairfield County area, there is no need to go anywhere but to Dr. Ciardullo.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ciardullo to anyone.
