This website recounts my rhinoplasty experience with Dr. Jay Calvert of Beverly Hills, CA. As discussed below, Dr. Calvert performed a miracle on me.
As a teenager, I underwent two rhinoplasties for aesthetic purposes.
My nose held up well until my mid-twenties when I developed breathing
problems. So, in December of 2007, I underwent a third rhinoplasty to
address the breathing problems caused by the first two. The surgeon
who performed my third surgery added multiple layers of rib cartilage
to my nose and removed my septum in its entirety. This left me in
great pain and difficulty in moving my face, as well as with a nose
that was long, wide, and prevented me from smiling normally.
The photos below show me BEFORE Dr.
Calvert performed surgery to correct the damage caused by my third
surgery (with a different surgeon). Before my surgery with Dr.
Calvert, I was in daily discomfort and my nose felt (and looked) like
it was “busting at the seams.” When I tried to smile, a painful crease
formed under my nose.
Before selecting Dr. Calvert to correct the
nightmare above, I consulted with several surgeons. I chose Dr.
Calvert because of his extensive research and medical practice
background in rhinoplasty, as well as his willingness to listen to my
concerns and address my myriad functional and related aesthetic issues.
As you can see in the photos below, Dr. Calvert performed an absolute
miracle. I never dreamed I’d be able to live without constant pain,
regain movement back in my face, have such great breathing, or look
like myself (only better!) after what my third surgeon had done to me.
The following are photos of me AFTER Dr. Calvert revised me. Functionally and aesthetically, I’m thrilled:
