I would like to share my rhinoplasty experience with those considering or moving forward with a nose job. I had absolute wonderful experience thanks to the very talented and skilled Dr. Jeffrey S. Epstein and would like to reassure others that this procedure can be relatively painless and change your life for the better if you choose the right doctor like I did.
Obviously, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Jeffrey S. Epstein as he was my plastic surgeon when I had the procedure done 7 months ago. I was 27 and had the surgery in Miami, FL where he currently has his practice (although he also has an office in NYC). I will start of saying that I thought about changing my nose since I was a kid. In a way, I always knew I would eventually have it corrected. Although I wished I could change my nose as long as I can remember I have to admit that I dont believed my old nose (too large for my face and with a huge hump on the top) hindered me from social activities or being successful at life. However, now with my new practically perfect nose for my frame face; life is SO much better. My confidence has skyrocketed and I know it is a direct result of my rhinoplasty.
When I met Dr. Epstein for my first consultation I was very impressed by his before and after pictures as well as his knowledge on facial plastic surgery. He was very professional and attentive to what it was I wanted to achieve with the surgery. I had a few consultations with other plastic surgeons in Miami to compare, but none made me feel at ease like Epstein. A lot of my girlfriends have had breast enhancements so I visited their doctors, but it was soon clear to me that I need a surgeon who specializes in the face, not a surgeon who performs 20 breast augmentations and 30 liposuctions a day and oh, the occasional nose job. Needless to say, Epstein pointed out ALL the flaws with my nose that needed corrected including cartilage reduction and thinning, while the others just noted the bump. Epstein is a perfectionist and believe me when I say, when it comes to your nose; the central feature on your face, the one thing you are absolutely unable to hide from the world and cant cover up if it goes wrong; you WANT a perfectionist.
Long story short, I woke up with little-no pain from the surgery. I had heard horror stories of people having tremendous pain, but I am now convinced those experiences had to be from less gentle care during surgery because I had NONE. I just had my 7 month follow up a few days ago and I will tell you what I told Dr. Epstein; I am forever grateful and will recommend him 4-EVA!
