Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

I needed to look better and I felt I had a long nose so it took me 20 years to finally go through with it. But this yeat I thought if I looked better then I would feel better about myself and other people would respect me and like me. I Should have done it years ago or not at all.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

My family and friends thought I was crazy and told me not to do it. My son screamed at me and told me he would never let me go through with it and that his punches hurt me and so anything would hurt me. Then my dad told me to just get it straightened for the deviated septum.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

They found me a surgeon that had great credentials and was cheap. I first looked them up on the internet to find a doctor then I found 1800mysurgeon. I called them and they told me about Dr. Pober and gave me his phone number and address. Then they called me to find out about if I had called and made an appointment and asked me if I had the surgery yet.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery went well. It took a few hours and I was able to go home. I did not feel any pain until the next day. It took me two weeks to fully recover and not feel pain in my nose. I went the next week to follow up and get rid of bandages. I still felt pain and thought I had an infection but pober said it was fine. I did not have an infection after all. The people that work for Pober are amazing and they made me feel comfortable.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

I would suggest everyone should use 1800mysurgeon for information on qualified surgeons. I would not suggest anyone to get a nose job. It is very painful and you will not be able to breathe through your nose for a few weeks. Also unless you have a lot of money it is not worth it.

How do you feel about your result?

I am happy it is over and I do not have to feel the pain. I do like my slope of the nose and he did what I told him to and cutting some of my nose. Also I think the deviated septum is fixed but I do not like my nostrils they look too big. Also since it has only been a month I still cant breathe right.
