Nose Surgery Series

Jessie thinks about her nose surgery expectations and writes: I am hoping that after my surgery, I will have a decrease in the overall size of my nose. I also want my tip to point upwards, not down as it currently does and of course, to have a straight nose in my profile.  I believe that having this surgery will make me a more confident person and will motivate me to be a healthier person.   What I mean by “healthier” is having a better outlook, being more active and just more beautiful all around. I want to take the extra time for me, spend more time getting ready for the day, walk my dog all over the Twin Cities and be more active at the gym. I know feeling better about my nose will motivate me to make the rest of me better, too. It will allow me to be more confidence out in public. I think being more active socially and physically will improve my life.

I have thought a lot about the recovery and I do not think it will be a problem for me. I do not have any children and I have been able to take time away from work to recover. I am also lucky to have family close by and they have volunteered to take my dog for a few days while I recover. I am expecting that I will be somewhat sore for several days after the surgery and expect the obvious swelling and bruising. I think the minor pain from the surgery will be less than the anguish I feel now from the facial appearance I currently have.

Editors Note: Next time Jessie’s story continues with a video interview the day of surgery, then next week clips of her actual surgery.

Patient Comment Highlights: Brow Lift

July 16th, 2014

Please allow us to toot our own horn! Danielle wrote to us about having a brow lift or forehead lift in a previous post. While we celebrate the summer season, it’s a pleasant task to reflect on comments that our patients have written about choosing to have surgery with us.

According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which I am a member, almost 45,000 forehead lift procedures are performed annually. A patient typically  comes to see me when they experience low or sagging eyebrows, causing their upper eyelids to droop over their eyes. Droopy eyebrows may contribute to looking tired and aged. A forehead lift or sometimes called a brow lift, is an effective procedure for both men and women to raise the eyebrows to more natural position on the face. This repositioning helps to create a more youthful appearance. We are pleased to share Danielle’s comments again and we are delighted she is happy with her decision.

Daniell writes:  “I had a forehead lift about 6 months ago and am so pleased with the whole experience.   Dr. Bashioum is absolutely wonderful — very kind and concerned about his patients’ happiness and well-being.   He was available to me at all times in the weeks after my surgery, which was reassuring.   And, of course, the results of my lift are great, too.   Surgery can be scary, but Dr. Bashioum and his fabulous staff made it a comfortable experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
