Surgeon: Dr. David Stoker
This 32-year-old woman from Los Angeles desired nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty) to improve her appearance. She decided to consult with plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker because of his expertise in nose surgery. She also had a sister who had a rhinoplasty by Dr. Stoker, and the result was so beautiful and natural that it gave her the confidence to consider nose surgery herself. In her personal life, she knew that she was going to be getting married in a few months. She had always been bothered by profile pictures of her nose, and the thought of all those wedding photographs capturing her profile made her somewhat anxious. I advised her to consider doing the nose surgery sooner rather than later so that she would be totally healed when it came time for the wedding.
She wanted a nose that did not dominate her face and did not detract from her other beautiful facial features.
On examination at our Los Angeles rhinoplasty practice, I found that she had what I describe as a tension nose. The prominent cartilage and bone on her nasal dorsum caused her to have a large dorsal bump that appeared out of harmony with her otherwise feminine characteristics.
Dr. Stoker performed a closed rhinoplasty procedure to achieve the look she desired.
She healed beautifully and we were both extremely pleased with the result. She felt that the result actually exceeded her expectations. Now both she and her sister had fantastic experiences with nasal reshaping surgery by Dr. Stoker. She is shown here before and four months after her rhinoplasty operation.
