The day of the surgery was the only time I was actually nervous even though it was what I really wanted. After entering the surgerical area, I was really scared! Then the nurse couldn't find my vein for the IV! By this time, I was frightened.

Then Dr. Torkian entered the room, I was still scared, but I felt a calm vibe. It might have been the drugs, but I'd like to think its Dr. Torkian's manner of treating a patient that made me feel secure. I had complete faith in his work. I didn't even know how I was going to look, but I knew he knew exactly what I needed and wanted and was going to make me look better.

The only pain I experienced was the night of the surgery and the morning after. The pain was minimal, but I was just uncomfortable. It only hurt when I touched my nose, but other then that I only had the cold symptoms.

I have never regretted having the surgery. The surgery made a great improvement to my face, self-esteem and family. I highly recommend it and most importantly I highly recommend Dr. Torkian. He is a wonderful doctor who truly cares about his patients.
