Larry is a 23 year old who had always been unhappy with how his nose looked. As he got older, it bothered him more and more. Every time he looked in the mirror his nose was all he could see, and he had started to think that lately, it was looking worse.
“I was uncomfortable with my nose. I never liked my nose. It always bothered me, but now I was actually ready to do something about it,” said Larry.
Larry was poking around the internet one day and came upon Dr. Parker’s website. He read many of the patient stories and liked that there was so much information on Parker Center’s site. He also liked that there were stories from other men who had the surgery. On a whim one day, Larry called to schedule a consultation appointment.
Larry found the Parker Center and the staff to be warm, comforting and professional. He was very impressed when he met Dr. Parker and decided almost immediately that Dr. Parker was the surgeon he wanted. Dr. Parker felt the rhinoplasty would be a great success, and Larry could not have been more pleased.
“The way Dr. Parker approached me when we first met was great. He was professional, knowledgeable and really made me feel comfortable. He was confident that he could give me exactly what I wanted, and he did. My nose is perfect,” Larry said.
At the Parker Center, rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and can take anywhere from 30 minute to 2 hours depending on the amount of work necessary. Patients are released to go home one hour after surgery and generally there is no pain.
“I had very little bruising and swelling the first few days. I went back to work after a week and by then the swelling was gone, and my nose looked great. At first, people were unsure about what was different. Some thought I had changed my hair, and others thought I lost weight. When they realized it was my nose that had changed, my friends were amazed at how good it looked,“ explained Larry.
Larry described Dr. Parker and his staff as “the best at what they do”. He loved the entire experience at the Parker Center, especially the three lymphatic massages at the Beaura Spa that were part of his surgery.
“Those massages were great. I truly believe that the combination of the medication for the swelling and the massages made my recovery a breeze. I looked exactly the way they showed me I would with the computer imaging before the surgery. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am,” Larry said.
Larry chose not to tell many people about his surgery, but the few close friends he told were amazed at how great he now looks. Larry has recommended Dr. Parker to friends and called the staff at the Parker Center “amazing.”
A nose that is too large can put other facial features out of proportion, and sometimes the best fix is a rhinoplasty. Dr. Parker, can balance the nose with the other facial features and create a more pleasing appearance. In males, a strong nose and chin are generally thought to be “ideal male” features. Dr. Parker often uses a chin implant to improve the balance. With a chin implant, the nose appears smaller, and the procedure requires less extensive surgery to correct.
