Residual Dorsal Hump

First of all, I am sorry that my story cannot be as inspiring as others here on RealSelf. However, I am obligated to be brutally honest with you wanderers of the Internet. I will tell the whole truth, both the good and the extraordinarily bad. (In advance, prepare for a melodramatic... READ MORE

College Student, Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

I love swelling. I love the way it blankets the nose in a sheath of ambiguity. Did I just waste a cool 15k? Will I finally look good enough? The lack of certainty is intriguing, like Schrödinger's cat (or Schrödinger's nose job if you will, the nose is simultaneously f*ck** up and beautiful). H... READ MORE

Questions from ColoradoRanger

Should I Get a Revision Rhinoplasty or Opt for a Non-surgical Method? (photo)

I recently had an open rhinoplasty (about 4 weeks ago) to remove my dorsal hump. However, the surgery has proven so far to be ineffective. Because a great deal of the swelling... READ MORE

I had a rhinoplasty to remove a dorsal hump, do I possibly saddle deformity? (photo)

Hi all! I had a rhinoplasty to remove a dorsal hump a little over a year ago. I am assuming that by now the swelling has gone away. Unfortunately my nose still looks "deformed"... READ MORE

How to approach treating a severe mid-vault collapse?

Hi there! I have been "diagnosed" with a relatively severe mid-vault collapse. The specialists in facial reconstruction I have consulted with have proposed two different... READ MORE

Hi all! I have undergone two rhinoplasties so far (one that over-resected my nose to the point I had an extreme mid-vault collapse and the other to reconstruct it). In your... READ MORE

Elongate Nose and Decrease Nostril Show with Filler? (photos)

Great results so far! Please keep us updated as the swelling goes down. READ COMMENT

Still, you paid around $23,000 (American dollars) for a primary rhinoplasty...That's relatively quite high. Well, I guess this is a great example of why location really matters in terms of economics. There are plenty of RealSelf posts... READ COMMENT

Wow, the results are great so far. Also, thanks so much for documenting your story. It's enlightening to see the inefficiencies in the court: it took so long for you to receive the financial compensation. You've had to put so much... READ COMMENT

Dr. Davis seems to be a good choice for reconstruction (which is what you need). Check out Dr. Toriumi too. He's pricey and is known for grafting quite a bit of cartilage (making the nose wider); however, in your case I don't think that... READ COMMENT

You're looking great, thanks for the update! READ COMMENT
