I am visiting other doctors, but there are only two in Austin that I would like to check out based on their credentials and past client pictures. If I don't feel super comfortable, I will have to go to Dallas or Houston. Sigh!

Limiting yourself based on geography is a bad idea. Remember this is your face and whatever alterations are made (positive or negative) are permanent ... unless you're up for a revision, which most potential PS patients are not contemplating during their primary procedures. You need to find the surgeon that is the perfect fit for you and your situation, regardless of geography.

Also, do not let any surgeons push you into getting any procedures you are uncomfortable with. Be assertive, well informed, and do not settle!

Although you nose isn't perfect (and very few of us have one!) I think it works on a man. So I wouldn't place rhinoplasty on the top of my list if I were you, but that's only my opinion. If your nose bothers you the most, then of course that probably means you should do that before anything else.

The neck seems to be a problem in the first (profile) picture and the closeup picture in the yellow shirt. In the other two it is not noticeable and it looks like you may have weighed less in them. I'm not saying it's necessarily a solution (nor am I saying you are overweight) but 145 lbs on a 5' 8" frame might be considered slightly overweight, on some body types (but not all). Do you feel that may be the case for you right now?

Not at all.. it depends on your body type

Regardless of body type, 5'8" and 145 lbs. is a normal weight when considering BMI.
