I was very hesitant about actually following through with my rhinoplasty dreams but I am so glad I took the plunge with Dr. Rawnsley. I spoke with Dr. R’s Patient Coordinator for a year before I got my rhinoplasty. I lived out of state and wanted to make sure 100% that I found the best doctor regardless of where he/she was in the country; after all this is my face! I asked her many questions throughout the course of my year of research and she always replied in a very friendly and professional manner. I really got the sense that she cared; she always treated me like an actual person not just some random person on the internet. Living out of state I often thought I was crazy for even thinking of traveling to L.A. to get a rhinoplasty from a doctor I never even met before!! She really won me over; she was amazing before, during and after the surgery.
After many e-mails and phone conversations I finally found myself sitting in Dr. Rawnsley’s office for my face to face consultation. Right off the bat he showed me (via computer imaging) what would look best with my facial features. I asked him to show me what it would look like with a more curved profile and he not only showed me but explained to me how it would result in an undesirable appearance. I am glad that he did not just nod his head and agree with everything I said; he took my other facial features into consideration and spoke candidly about what would and wouldn’t work with my face. At the end of the consultation he asked me if I was sure I didn’t have any other questions. He wanted to make sure I addressed all of my concerns before the “big day.” That meant a lot to me; I really felt like he cared. Afterwards, Dr. R’s Patient Coordinator came into the office and talked to me for awhile. We sat down and looked over the computer imaging pictures and she asked me if I was sure I asked all the questions I wanted to ask. The fact that they both made a point to verify that I left the office without any questions was huge to me.
Dr. Rawnsley spent a lot of time in surgery with me which is a good thing; somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 1/2 to 4 hrs on my nose. It makes me feel good to know that he gave my nose so much attention! I am very happy with my results. Dr. Rawnsley fixed my deviated septum, straightened my nose, turned it up a bit and reduced the tip. It looks amazing and very natural. When I look in the mirror my nose looks different but not too different. He did such an amazing job; he totally changed my nose but didn’t change it (I know that sounds odd). Dr. Rawnsley is an exceptional doctor! Before surgery (as I was being wheeled away) he smiled at me and told me everything was going to be great; my butterflies disappeared. He really listened to me and spent time on my nose. He was also great during my follow up phone consultations. I have another one in a couple of months! In a nut shell I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Rawnsley, he is an amazing doctor!
