Not what I expected ..

Id rather have my old nose back than what I've been left with. My plastic surgeon is a family surgeon he's worked on my sister, aunt, and mother. All of which had amazing results (esp my sisters nose). My procedure however didn't go as planned, when he opened my nose he said he had to rebuild the left side & it took 3 1/2hrs instead of 2hrs. What I have now 2 weeks out is a perfect bridge but horiffic suture line, uneven nostrils & nose tip. See for yourselves ...

Ive been crying for the last 3 days after my sister being "honest" told me how bad it looks & I should make an appt to speak with my surgeon ASAP. Thanks sis

PS. sorry for the weird blocked out pictures, im just so mortified I cant bare to look at myself.

Hey girl, I don't think it looks that bad!!! Could be way worse if he had complications during surgery. Really try not to make yourself crazy by crying, I had bad results as well of different surgery's. Almost got depressed. But be patient, let it rest for 3 months and then have a revision. I think your problem is really fixable!!! take care

Ill post better pictures soon because those are after I'm crying & I'm sure that made it swell more. I had a bit of a meltdown when I originally made this post & took the pics. Ohh the joys of being an emotional dramatic girl
Hi Faith, I am sorry you are not happy with the results. I wouldn't be too discouraged I am sure it is fixable somehow...I would look into getting a second opinion or a bit of further work if needed. Actually - in the last photo it doesn't look so bad - it could be some of the swelling but fear not - there is so much to be done nowadays to correct it if you are unhappy....Best Wishes and my thoughts and prayers are with you!
