Do you want to visualize a cosmetic procedure from another patient’s perspective before going through it yourself?
You have come to the right place! Today we are going to let you in on a patient’s story. She had a life-changing experience after her rhinoplasty and liposuction procedure. Every day we hear stories of how patients believe that physical attributes can make a world of a difference when it comes to living in full confidence. Together we get to imagine the joyous feeling of a patient walking out of their house with their chin held high, shoulders back, and loving themselves for they are. Let us share this rewarding moment. Although we are all not born to be perfect, luckily with skilled surgeons, we can be one step closer to looking and feeling our best. Let’s embark into how our patient began her life-changing journey.
The Patient’s Life Before Surgery
Our lovely patient is a model that was lacking confidence in herself. It is normal to begin to develop insecurities about how we look physically as we grow older. She, in particular, did not like her nose. At a young age, she had a cute, little nose, but as she developed into a teen it began to grow. She wanted to get rhinoplasty to rid of the hump on the bridge of her nose and draw less attention from the center of her face.
Her modeling agent never considered her particularly slim with the way her body contours, just a healthy weight. She truly enjoyed her life behind a camera and wanted to work towards building her appearance so she can be happy with the way she looked. We can all agree that when we want to drop a few pounds, we begin to eat less but still, the weight on the scale never drops. When posing for swimwear or lingerie campaigns, she felt insecure in her own body.
Photographers taking the picture would tell her that imperfections will be fixed with photoshop. That just reminded her she was not pretty enough. She was tired of being known as a ‘real-sized’ model which is when she decided to endure liposuction. Our patient wanted to feel confident to be a part of the industry but most importantly, she was ready to finally be confident in her own skin. The change was not motivated by others. When we want to make a difference, change is driven by a personal goal. Rhinoplasty and liposuction will be able to provide her confidence in the body she would be living in.
Cosmetic Surgery Consultation
During her consultation with Banobagi, we welcomed our patient with our warm and inviting staff. She changed into a turquoise gown to prepare for before photos. You may be quite nervous about certain areas of your body like most patients are, but who wouldn’t be. As she met with the plastic surgeon, he was able to recommend the right surgeries for her body type and facial structure.
The doctor discussed liposuction techniques and the amount of fat that was going to be removed. She built a strong relationship with him and even shared a few laughs. Building a relationship with our patients is one of the many things we want to achieve in hopes that our patients will walk out of the consultation feeling safe in our hands. At this point, our patient was excited for surgery and ready to see changes in her body.
“I usually expect surgeons to be really dry, but he was really friendly and had a laugh with me, so I felt very happy to let him operate on me. I had consultations at lots of different clinics before, and Banobagi was definitely the best because the staff are so welcoming, and the doctors are very well qualified and experienced”. -Banobagi Patient
The Day of Surgery
When our patient arrives on surgery day, our goal is to make you feel as relaxed as possible. We can only imagine the number of nerves going through your body. To make our patient feel more comfortable, we filled the room with English speaking staff to help translate the rhinoplasty and liposuction procedure. We had our patient clean her mouth and face thoroughly and get changed before entering the surgery room.

The patient stayed in the hospital for one night after the procedure was completed. Due to our highly trained staff, she was able to have a quick recovery. Before she left home we supplied her with kits to wash her wounds and a face mask to disguise the bandages on her nose if she were to go outside. She was on bed rest for the first few days. We encouraged her to take frequent walks to reduce the swelling faster. When her nose cast came off, she felt completely confident to send a photo of her nose without photoshop. She was so excited when she saw her nose so straight for the first time after her nose job. Within 5 days after surgery, she went out to the shops to try on clothes. Even with post-surgery bruising, she already felt so much more attractive. She was able to recognize the significant size her thighs and abdomen slimmed down too.
One Month Post Surgery
The patient has returned back to her hometown one month post surgery with minimal swelling. She was ready to get back on her feet and return to work and normal activities. Since the surgery, she has gained a new found confidence towards her modeling career. She no longer feels the need to photoshop her photos due to the significant body fat loss. The surgery has given her motivation to start eating right and working out to maintain the hourglass figure after liposuction. Due to her new and improved body, nobody questions her when she proudly states she’s a professional model.
“I’ve been really honest with my friends and family about my surgery. The most common thing they say is “it doesn’t look like you’ve had surgery” which I actually take as a really big compliment because I know my results are very natural looking.” -Banobagi Patient
The Patient’s Life After Surgery
Our patient came in seeking procedures to help modify aspects of her body that made her lack confidence with the way she looked. Our skilled surgeons were able to make adjustments in the features of her face and body to create the appearance she wanted to be seen in through rhinoplasty and liposuction. We are proud to be able to share her plastic surgery journey through her treated areas and successfully say that she is overjoyed with the new and improved version of herself. Every patient has a story to share, stay posted to get more insights on the behind the scenes patient experience with Banobagi.
