Ever since I can remember, I knew the size and shape of my nose was not something I was happy with. I was constantly analyzing my peers noses not only when seeing them day to day, but also in Facebook pictures--I felt like all I could focus on was how perfect everyone else’s noses were in comparison to mine. Tired of being unhappy and ready to make the change, I scheduled multiple consults with different plastic surgeons in the Austin area. However, as soon as I met with Dr. Robert Caridi my decision was made! Even though we were focusing on my biggest insecurity, Dr. Caridi and his staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery really put my nerves at ease and made me feel both comfortable and confident about the whole process. One thing that especially gave me confidence was having the full-time anesthesiologist, Dr. Diane Boysen, there at my consultation alongside Dr. Caridi. Getting to meet and talk things over with all those that would be part of my procedure ensured me that after what felt like a life time of insecurity, I would be satisfied with the result. 1 year later, satisfaction is an understatement. Comparing my nose and others is still a habit, but now with each comparison I am reminded of how wonderful of a job Dr. Caridi did. It truly was the best thing I ever did.
