Revision Rhinoplasty Mistake - Chicago, IL

Totally regret going to this doctor. My breathing is 75% worse and my nose is a large, triangular, crooked blob. After my primary rhinoplasty my nose was slimmer, had a really nice tip, and was pretty even. I really liked it. But I got injured and had to get a revision done. I shouldn't have researched it more then. I didn't know about any of these sites at that time. READ MORE
