"My rhinoplasty consultation was detailed and thorough; my experience on the day of the procedure was flawless, and my recovery was prompt. Three months in, my nose perfectly natural and finally fits my face, even as the post-surgery swelling has yet to subside entirely. All in all, I could not be more pleased."
