Revision- Dr. Cochran?

Revision- Dr. Cochran?

Postby Flowerypearl » Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:32 pm

Hi all, I'm a female looking into a 2nd revision to correct an asymmetrical bulbous tip.
While my main concern is symmetry, I really like the look of a feminine, refined nose. Thus far I have had consultations with both Dr. Rohrich and Dr. Cochran in Dallas. Of the two, I am leaning toward Dr. Cochran because he only works on noses and I do like his before/ after gallery. There are, however, a few patients I have seen on RS who are left with a bit of a wider bridge, which terrifies me to be honest.

Can anyone give me feedback on Dr. Cochran? Or does anyone have any recommendations for a revision specialist who can achieve a feminine, refined nose?

Please don't touch your nose it looks great. You have no idea how unpredictable revisions are. Leave it alone its a good nose. My honest advice to you, be happy and walk away. Do not try to perfect something that is not supposed to be perfect. And to me its as perfect as it gets.

Thank you for your input. I am disheartened by my bulbous, bumpy nose. I find that it detracts from my overall aesthetic and it is something I would like to improve. My concern is finding the right surgeon who can correct asymmetry and refine. I really like the look of Dr. Griogoryants' noses, but fear that he doesn't have enough experience with revisions. I like Dr. Cochran's experience and results on his website, but the firsthand results I have seen on RS aren't necessarily that 'refined' look that I like. Thoughts?

Some people have had great success with Dr. Cochran, but based on my own experience I would not recommend him. I had a primary with him years ago and I feel like I need a revision. My nose looks pretty angular and is not straight from 3/4 views. I also have a good amount of bossae going on. I really didn't think I was that complicated of a primary so I'm not sure why I didn't have a better outcome. When I mentioned my concerns to him at a f/u appointment I felt like he sort of blew me off. I have some pictures on here and on realself which you can check out. Just go to his page and look at the negative reviews and you'll see mine there.

Thanks so much for your insight! I appreciate it! I've had the same problem where the doctors had decent nose outcomes... and mine somehow turned out bumpy, bulgey, asymmetrical. It's really hard to navigate reviews and assess what a Dr. can and can't do. When it goes right, it goes right. And when it goes bad, it goes bad.

I actually think if all you want is a refined tip Dr Griogryants can accomplish that just fine. But I would think long and hard before jumping into another surgery. Trust me when I say this to you. If I knew then what I know now I would not have let my nose touched after my first revision. Wanting few small things fixed turned into yet another nightmare. I personally think your nose is great and if it was me I would have left it alone and enjoyed my life.

Sculpting, shaping, refinement...etc..takes place under the skin. How much you see the refinement made is a function of the skin thickness and how the skin 'shrink wraps' over what has been sculpted underneath. Other types of thickness beyond the surgeon's control is one's propensity to form scar tissue.

During consults, relay your desire a refined tip and ask the PS to relay back to you how much refinement can be expected given his/her assessment of your skin thickness.
Please Note: NO PMs please.
