27 Y/o Finally Getting Cheeks and Filler in Recessed Chin with Dr. Niamtu in VA

At that time I received so many negative and discouraging comments I asked the realself team to graciously rescind the post. If you're against plastic surgery or want to tell people to accept the way they look because you have a chip on your shoulder about a bad... READ MORE

Edison, NJ- Rhino+Facial fat transfer, worth it for sure!!

I was genetically blessed with a very Jewish/Mediterranean nose, and flat cheekbones. My nose projected too much from my face, was slightly crooked, and had a dorsal hump. Ever since my nose developed, I was always very self-conscious about it, and I felt like it was all people saw when they looked at my face. This was not how I wanted to stand out, and I dreaded any photos that showed me in... READ MORE

I think under twilight anesthesia you're still awake, but sedated. Personally I'd opt for general anesthesia. I would not want to be awake during the surgery. READ COMMENT

Aw, thank you so much! You'll be under general anesthesia so it's nothing you have to witness. The worst part is some swelling and very minor pain/discomfort. Have you ever had your wisdom teeth out? I think it's comparable, if not less... READ COMMENT

Did you decide whether to move forward with a revision? It is unethical for Dr Rodriguez to charge you another $2000 for a mistake he made. Standard ethical procedure is for them to correct free of charge (the time and pain you have to... READ COMMENT
