New Nose, New You

Earlier this month, two sisters came to our office in Wayne, New Jersey, for non surgical Rhinoplasty to camouflage a bump they both had on their nose. Nicole first became aware of the bump on her nose at the age of 14. Throughout high school and college, Nicole avoided turning sideways so that her profile would not be visible. Along with her sister, Nicole invested in tons of makeup in hopes of finding a quick fix to cover the bump on her nose. Nicole's nose bothered her so much to the point where she became extremely insecure. She constantly discussed her insecurities about her nose with her closest friends, but no one seemed to be able to relate. Her friends would tell her "your nose is fine, don't worry" but every time Nicole would look in the mirror, she would notice her bump. After Nicole lost weight, her face became thinner, causing the bump on her nose to be especially visible. Nicole's turning point was when she was the maid of honor at her best friend's wedding. Nicole saw a video from the wedding, where her nose was filmed from every angle. Nicole said “I felt like my hair, makeup, and dress looked nice, but it was a waste of spending money on those things because nothing else besides my nose stood out." This was in August, 2013. Nicole decided to save up for a non surgical rhinoplasty before Christmas of 2013. On Monday, December 16, 2013, Nicole's new nose was unveiled at our office. We used injectable fillers to camouflage the bump on her nose; the entire process took about five minutes. This is Nicole’s before and after picture, the after picture was taken immediately after her nose job. Stay tuned for Nicole's video testimonial to find out how she feels after the procedure, and what the process was like!
