The gratitude I feel toward Dr. Rawnsley is difficult to describe in words. My cast was taken off three days ago. Even though there is still quite a bit of swelling, my nose is beautiful and I can hardly believe that it is mine.
For most of my life I disliked the appearance of my nose. It was over-projected, deviated to the right, with a larger tip. I am 28 and the reason I have waited this long is because in my years of research and meeting doctors, I could not find a doctor that made me feel safe and like I was going to be in the best hands possible.
Then finally, I found Dr. Rawnsley. I think that in almost every profession a person can be qualified to do something or they can be qualified to do something while also having a certain talent – a certain touch and a certain eye for beauty that is rare to come by. I saw this in Dr. Rawnsley’s before and after pictures and videos of his patients, and in seeing Dr. Rawnsley speak in the videos on his website. I saw that this is a doctor that is truly gifted and one that really loves what he does.
I travelled all the way to LA from Canada because considering the complexity of this surgery and the fact that this is my face, choosing a doctor that is skillful and has the rare talent and artistic touch that the best rhinoplasty surgeon requires was the most important part of this process. The difference in price isn’t a big one and it is worth it. I spent my 8 days of recovery completely worry-free about the outcome because I trusted that Dr. Rawnsley would give me a beautiful nose. I knew that Dr. Rawnsley would not leave the operating room until he was happy with his work. The fact that he did, meant there was a beautiful nose under my cast. And there was.
I have read often in patient reviews that their only regret after their surgery is not having done this sooner. Well for me this isn’t the case simply because having waited this long has allowed me to find Dr. Rawnsley. I am so happy that I did.
Dr. Rawnsley’s patient coordinator has been wonderful. She responded to all of my questions promptly and has even found a way to change the time of my post-op appointment on a short notice after I realized that I may not have left myself enough time to get to the airport on time. She has been very helpful and supporting through the whole process.
The day I found Dr. Rawnsley is the day getting rhinoplasty has become something very positive in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Rawnsley.
