V | TEENAGER | CAUCASIAN | FEMALE | STUDENT | NEW YORK, USA
WHAT WAS DONE?
V is a teenager who came to my clinic with her mother. She had been teased in school for many years for the appearance of her nose. She had no confidence and had avoided taking pictures for many years. She had a large dorsal hump and a bulbous tip. After extensive discussion with both V and her mom, rhinoplasty was done to reduce the overall size and increase the projection of her nasal tip while removing the large dorsal hump. She was very happy with the result, immediately started taking selfies as soon as her splint was removed. In all subsequent follow ups, you can see the confidence in her. Her nose looks natural and proportionally fits the rest of her face.
BEFORE AND AFTER
We are more than sad that you are leaving us Dr. Lao. I wish you the best because you are a very smart young man and a great surgeon. After God, you made my daughter’s life very happy. You enhanced her beauty and self-esteem, and make me a happy mother again. I hope we keep in touch.
“Gracias a Dios y gracias al talentoso cirujano Dr William Lao, quedaron atras Los años de tristeza, complejos, encierros, depresión y más que todo el abuso verbal de parte de muchos compañeros de clase que sufrió mi hija por la forma de su naríz. Después de varias consultas, consejos, examenes físicos y la seguridad que nos dió el Dr Lao, tomamos la decisión que cambiaría la vida de mi hija de 15 años; hacerle la Rinoplastia. Con la confianza que nos daba el Dr Lao y el deseo de ayudar a mi hija me senti segura e inmediatamente pusimos fecha para la cirujía. Llegó el gran día, 31 de Marzo del 2015 11:00 am, fue un dia lleno de emociones. 2 horas más tarde, después de un trabajo con amor de manos de un artista, la curujía fue todo un exito. Hoy mi hija es feliz, no esconde más su rostro, le va mucho mejor en la escuela, se siente segura de sí misma, tiene más amigos, es más social. El Dr William Lao nos ha cambiado la vida, me incluyo porque como madre mi sufrimiento era mayor al ver mi hija sufrir. Celebramos sus 16 años llenos de felicidad con una hermosa sección de fotos mostrando con orgullo su nueva y bella naríz. A todos Los que se vean en la situacion que mi hija y yo vivimos, les digo que hay esperanza y solución, pero tienen que estar seguros en las manos que van a confiar su rostro o su cuerpo. Les recomiendo con toda sinceridad a quien considero el mejor cirujano, el Dr William Lao🙌🏼”

C, 41, Hispanic
C previously had a rhinoplasty done a few years ago in Colombia to decrease the size of her nose. It was, however, overdone. She ended up with a noticeable depression in the center of her nose and the edges of the remaining nasal bone were visible. Revision rhinoplasty was done through a close approach to correct this defect. Her nose looked natural and normal again.
B, 33, Hispanic
B also had a rhinoplasty done in Colombia a few years ago. However, she was not satisfied with the amount of correct and also she was left with a deviated septum. A closed rhinoplasty was done to correct this defect without any scars on the outside skin.
D, 41, Indian
D did not like the hook look of her nasal tip. She also wanted her tip to be more projected at the same time. Rhinoplasty surgery was done to increase the projection of her tip and improve the hooking tip. The changes are subtle but noticeable and natural.
