This 30-year-old San Diego female had been considering rhinoplasty in San Diego to remove the bump on her nose. She was self-conscious about her nose appearing "beak-like" and felt it was simply too large for her face. After hearing positive reports about Dr. Chaffoo, she decided to make an appointment with him to learn about her options.
Dr. Chaffoo sat down with her to discuss the changes she wanted to see. She explained that she thought her nose was too large and that she wanted a slimmer, straighter nose. She emphasized that she still wanted to look like herself after surgery.
Dr. Chaffoo took several measurements and photographs in order to construct a detailed plan for surgery. He said he could remove the dorsal hump and narrow the width of her nose. The results, he promised, would look very natural. She felt comfortable with Dr. Chaffoo and scheduled an appointment at his La Jolla cosmetic surgery practice.
The day of her operation went very well. A splint was applied to her nose after surgery to help stabilize the internal structures and speed healing. She was able to return to work after about a week, and swelling and bruising gradually disappeared during the next few months. Now, her nose is much straighter and in better proportion to her face. She is very happy with her with her new look and with Dr. Chaffoo.
