After about 15 years of considering rhinoplasty, I have finally decided to do it. I am scheduled for surgery exactly one month from day on March 14th! My nose has always bothered me, due to the large size, bulbous tip and bump that I have (I'll have to post some pictures later). I know this will give me the confidence I've been lacking and I can't wait to take a profile picture that doesn't... more
I have never gotten plastic surgery before but this was relatively a relaxed and easy recovery. I do not remmeber anything from the surgery or from getting home from the surgery but the first 4 days after surgery it was difficult to sleep, of course, with swollen eyes and cheeks. It was also impossible to taste or smell anything until the packing was taken out of my nose after 4 days. The cast... more
I had my Rhinoplasty done a few days ago, I had NO PAIN just felt like alot of pressure the 2-3 day from swelling and the first day I slept through everything.. At about day 4 your nose is still swollen but your face isn’t swollen anymore I did not bruise I got lucky.. I have a little yellowish tint underneath my eyes but that has gone away now. The only obvious factor that give it away is... more
I'm 16 and im getting a rhinoplasty next wenesday! Summer just started and obviously this would be the time to do it. My nerves and thoughts about the surgery have been back and forth. Everytime i think about it, i think of a new reason to be worried or not do it, then again i think of a lot of reasons to do it! Starting in about 6th grade i was very self conscious of my nose. It doesn't blend... more
I'm 40 and have lived with a nose that I have never loved. Overall I'm a pretty confident guy but as far as I can remember many people have commented on my nose being big which has made me feel self conscious. Whenever I see a picture of myself I am always drawn to see how my nose appears.
Earlier this year I began developing quite a few sinus infections and I finally went to a doctor to... more
About 8 years ago, when he was at Stanford, he performed a rhinoplasty on me that came out looking like a pig snout. Because no one else would touch me, I allowed him to do a revision on me. Where do I start? My nose looks bigger than before, it has a lump it never had, the cartilage inside my nose is S-shaped, I have nose bleeds all the time, the grafts have shifted and the tip is an... more
I have always had a large nose and have been made of for it for as long as I can remember. It was something that always made me self conscious to the point that I would never let people see my profile and I would do anything to avoid getting attention drawn to myself. I had broken my nose twice when I was about 15 and got a deviated septum as a result. When I was 17 I started having breathing... more
I have always wanted to have my nose reshaped. It has bothered me as far back as I can remember. After meeting the Doctor I felt comfortable that now was the time to have the procedure. Now that I am in the 3rd week of recovery, I wish I would have had the prodedure dones years ago...however maybe years ago I would not have had the fantastic results. The Doctor did an amazing job making my... more
