About 10 days ago, I had a doctor hack up my face, leaving me looking like LaToya Jackson. The nose is upturned to the sky. Maybe it will come down another degree or two, but there is really no chance that it will come out okay. Also, I wanted the tip narrowed, but it is actually wider, rounder, and more bulbous than before.
Can I do grafts or Radiesse or Restylane injections now? If something can't be done in the next couple of weeks, I am planning on committing suicide. I desperately need to do SOMETHING. Please help me!
I am so, so, so sorry to have alarmed everybody. I published my question when I was feeling absolutely horrible and panicked. It is really terrifying to look like a pig and know that you won't be able to do anything about it for a year. My husband absolutely hates it, which makes it even harder for me. However, we talked to some new plastic surgeons on Monday and are feeling much better. I am in a much better emotional place now, and am working on accepting my situation, and have no intentions of hurting myself :-)
That being said, I really would appreciate any advice about correcting the over-rotated tip. Is a graft the best option? One doctor I spoke with talked about a trick that you can do to make the nostrils smaller by sort of pulling them back with stitches, and that pulls the tip down. Also, as for my extremely low bridge (I have other pictures but think I can only post one), as I understand it, the options are Radiesse, a graft, or an implant. Of course, I would prefer Radiesse because it is so much less invasive and I would not have to go through another full-on surgery again. However, I don't want to chance a bad result. One doctor said that implants are no good on a Caucasian because the skin is too thin--sometimes you can see them. I'm willing to do a graft if necessary, but not relishing the thought of harvesting them. What would you recommend? How soon can I do something about this?
While I am not feeling suicidal at all anymore (I promise!), the thought of having to go around with this nose for a year is beyond depressing. The swelling on the tip has gone down a lot, because I have been doing arnica, taping, and almost constant icing. However, the tip has not even dropped one degree, which is an indication to me that it's probably not going to. Does anybody know of a PS her in Honolulu or possibly in Los Angeles (I'm going there for a week next month) that might be able to take on this nose? Any advice or recommendations will be so appreciated.
