BEFORE AND AFTER
Dr. Lao is an incredibly approachable and efficient doctor. From my first consultation to the time of my follow up, I felt comfortable and listened to. He took the time to check on me frequently and make sure I was making it through my recovery well. I felt comfortable talking to him about even the smallest details or questions I initially thought were silly. I’m beyond satisfied with my results.

She was told it was hyaluronic acid but it actually never went away and actually grew bigger with time according to her. Rhinoplasty was done to remove the foreign body and straighten her nose. Autologous cartilage was also used to increase the tip projection.
V, teenager, Caucasian
V is a teenager who had been teased in school for many years for the appearance of her nose. She had a large dorsal hump and a bulbous tip.

She was very happy with the result, immediately started taking selfies as soon as her splint was removed.
