I highly recommend Dr. Rawnsley and his office staff. Let me provide some background information. Since I was a child I’ve always disliked nose. I have thought about rhinoplasty for years. Finally, after years of thinking about it but never doing anything, I decided to proceed with my rhinoplasty and scheduled consultations with several plastic surgeons. I was so excited for my first appointment – I was finally moving ahead with something that was so important to me. Then I met a doctor (not Dr. Rawnsley) and my hopes were so deflated. The doctor said he wasn’t excited to work on my nose (I was shocked someone would say that) and his demeanor and attitude were not professional. I left this office thinking maybe a rhinoplasty wasn’t for me. I met with two other highly recommended doctors and although their demeanor and professionalism were great there was something missing. Then I met Dr. Rawnsley. I knew right away this was my doctor. He was polite, professional, made me feel extremely comfortable, and we just clicked. We discussed my nose, my dislikes and thoughts. He took photos and then modified the photo of my nose. Here is what solidified Dr. Rawnsley for me – as he was looking at the images he modified my nose to an end result that was exactly what I was desiring in my rhinoplasty. I know these are just images but this told me that Dr. Rawnsley and I were on the same page. So if there were developments during surgery or something became more complicated I knew his vision was the same as mine. I look back at my consultations with the other doctors and although one was extremely unpleasant I am glad that I experienced those meetings because I don’t think I would have appreciated Dr. Rawnsley as much as I did and still do. Fast forward to my surgery day and I was extremely nervous, Dr. Rawnsley walks in and his confidence just calms you. I would also like to add that one of the nurses at the surgery center commented on what a great surgeon Dr. Rawnsley is and how sweet the staff is. This shows you how people outside of their office perceive them and that’s important. I’m now three months post-surgery and I am very happy with the results. The tip of my nose is swollen which is completely normal and everything is progressing wonderfully. Plastic surgery is something very personal and you need a doctor that you feel is right for you. If anyone is considering rhinoplasty, I recommend that you meet with Dr. Rawnsley. His professionalism, confidence, knowledge, and general demeanor will guide you through this process and you will know you have chosen the right doctor.
