Dear Dr. Frankel,I can never thank you enough for helping me look like a “normal person” again. The change is amazing. 4 years ago I would never have picture taken willingly and now – for the past few years – we have many pictures, 3 portraits and a picture Christmas card. My self-esteem has risen to new levels I never imagined. I can look people in the eye and don’t feel that when people look at me that they must be looking at my nose – causing me to lower my eyes in shame. I was so embarrassed over my appearance. Now I hold my head high, am involved in many activities and organizations, and feel completely worthwhile. I even feel intelligent-sounding. I hadn’t realized I hadn’t felt in so long for how could a “smart person” wind up looking like me. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for giving me a beautiful nose (and a functional one) so that I could once again be the person I am, that is, meant to be. Happy holidays and may 2006 be joyous.
