Deviated Septum, Rhinoplasty

Deviated Septum, Rhinoplasty

“My experience might have been different from others in the sense that I was born with a broken nose and severely deviated septum. From the age of 10 years old is when I really started to notice my nose and that I was very self conscious of it. Because I was born with a severely deviated septum I did not know what it really felt like to breathe out of my nose. I could slightly breathe out of one of my nostrils but that was it. Dr. Setzen changed my life. Surprisingly I was not scared to have this surgery because I had wanted it for a very long time. Dr. Setzen made me feel very comfortable because of how informed I was about everything. The surgery was an in and out procedure. I was in there for about 4 hours because of how severe my nose was; I was told by Dr. Setzen that my nose was in the top 10 worst noses he had ever seen. At first that did frighten me but he assured me that he was confident in his abilities and that I had no reason to worry. I honestly did not feel any pain after except for headaches and a little pressure in my forehead from the splints inside my nose (due to the corrective surgery for my previously broken nose). Taking out the packing, stitches and splints was a little painful but removed very fast. Also, when you go for checkups scabs inside your nose are removed; I wouldn’t say it is painful it is more of an uncomfortable feeling, but yet again over very fast. Once all the packing and splints came off and I took my first breath it was a life changing experience that I will never forget. It sounds silly but its true! This surgery improved my health and my life, I was very happy with the outer and inner results. I give great thanks and recommendations to Dr. Setzen and his team!”
