After 4 surgeries on my nose, no doctor wanted to operate on me. When I spoke to Dr. Sclafani he agreed to try to help improve my breathing but said my nose was fragile and it would be risky to try to do too much to improve the outside. It took a while for the swelling to go down my nose looks better than it has in years and I can finally breathe through my nose and get a comfortable night of sleep.
Maybe I heal well but I was able to go out with my friends a week after my nose job. Dr. Sclafani told me it would be swollen for a few weeks but I already looked good. I am so happy I finally did this after thinking about it for so long!
I saw one of the other doctors in Dr. Sclafani's office for sinus problems, and when I heard I needed surgery I saw Dr. Sclafani to discuss rhinoplasty. They were able to do both surgeries at one time, and my headaches are gone and my nose is looking better every day. The tip is still a little swollen, but Dr. Sclafani told me that would take the longest. He told me what to expect after surgery and that has helped knowing that everything in my recovery is expected.
I really liked that Dr. Sclafani discussed a range of options for me and didn't just say I needed a facelift like the last Doctor I saw. I went with Refyne to shape my cheekbones and Botox for my neck and like the result. Dr S mentioned a facelift too, but I am not ready for that. I will definitely consider him when I decide to do a facelift.
