1 year and 1 month since surgery! (Open Rhino) pretty satisfied :-) what u think?

So far so good :-) had open rhinoplasty today at 2pm local time, its 9pm now. Been bothered with my nose since i was about 12 years old, espesially in profile while smiling. So what i and the doctor agreed on was to remove the bump, lift the tip a little bit and cut the muscles that makes my nose point down when i smile. As i can see i dont have any bruises yet, and my eyes were only a little bit swollen right after surgery. When is it normal to get the black eyes? I also have tampons in my nose thats supposed to be removed in a week, the same time as the cast. I cant wait, it cant be worse than before anyways ;-) btw: i'm 26

Day one after surgery: feeling fine today aswell, almost no swelling. Went to the hospital for a check and the nurse said it was one of best jobs shes seen a day after. Yay.

I know this is a random question but u look really good at applying gel eyeliner, and I just bought some for my first time and Im wondering how you apply yours because I don't want to pull my eyes (causes wrinkles) and even if I do pull my eyes it doesn't go on smoothly and looks really rough. THANKS. I hope you're recovery is going really well :)

I did not have the same things done as you, nor did I have the same shape... but it looks like you're healing well - hooray! I hope all continues to go well :-)

2 days since surgery! Have gotten a little bit swollen on the left eye, and a hint of blueish, but nothing to complaint about. Slept like 12 hours this night, that might be the reason why i feel a little more puffed than the other days. Still no pain at all, and i think the nostrils looks great already! Can i go for a walk in fresh air? Its kind of cold outside..

Sorry for alot of posts in short time.. But is it something wrong when my upper lip does NOT feel stiff? I can eat and laugh without pain.. I dont have a sore throat neither. Anyone else? Havent taken any vitamins or arnica or anything!

I don't think there is anything wrong if you're upper lip doesn't feel stiff. Everyone's faces our different, so I guess nerves just connect up in different places! Enjoy not being too sore!

Maybe., or else i thought it could be because he cut a muscle from my mouth to my nose..
I would assume that if the muscle was cut then you wouldn't be able to move your upper lip either! (although I may be completely wrong)

So., today is sunday, i had my surgery on thursday. So its day 3 post op. Still no pain at all, just a little bit swollen between the eyes. Started the day with walking 30min with my dog, fresh air feels nice. Its getting really boring lying on the sofa, usually i like being lazy, but not when i have to :-) thinking about starting a blog or something. Or else i could just play the sims, pretend that it is my life these long days. Not looking forward to removing the cast and tampons. Guessing the tampons will be very stuck after 7 days :-S

Sounds like you are doing great. I can't wait for the removal of your cast, and hope it goes well and reasonably painlessly for you when the packing is removed.

Also; any tips on removing the "chunks" of blood thats sticking to the inside in my nostrils? Its painful to pluck it. I have tried saltywater.. Also tried to cut it off with a scissors and a pinset, but i doesnt move and blood starts running..

you are a beautiful woman before n after ... please do not cause further bleeding and allow your nose to heal well ... and protect your nose from the sun :)

I think you should wait at least a full year for your nose to recover and do it's healing thing before you decide on revision. That way you don't have to take off more time from work so soon, and also you will give your nose enough time to see the final results and decide then whether you like it or not. :)

P.S. I think you are a very pretty lady in both your before and after pics! Love your eyes!

Honestly, you looked beautiful before the surgery, but I can definitely see why you got it done. Your new nose defines your face better.

Still feeling thar my nose is too big and prominent from some angles.. If it doesnt get smaller i want it redone.. I like the front look

Try not to get too worked up about it, it's a process. I totally get where your coming from, there is one particular angle on my new nose that bugs me too, but swelling has a lot to do with it! Also the tip takes the longest to go down, unfortunately. I'll post pics!
  • Reply
Prominent nose loots better in front pictures and less attractive in angles if it's pointy. But you're a beautiful girl, skip your attention from your nose to your beautiful parts and stop staring in the mirror. It's still recovering, and you can't judge it now.

I dont want it to be prominent, want to feel secure from all angles..

So.. 1 month and 2 weeks since surgery. The nose is definetly starting to shape now, the tip is not so droopy and swelled anymore, yey! But i would like it to rise a bit more so that the nose dont look as downwarded. Very happy thou ;-) updated my photos!

6 months since open rhinoplasty!!

So.. Six months went by fast! I've had one check up with the surgeon, and he told me så massace the tip upwards, its supposed to lift a bit more and my nose is overall a bit swollen still and a little shapeless. I am very happy, now i dont feel akward from the angles i did before. Its weird being taken pictures of, just because im not sure whats my good sides/poses anymore :-P im adding some photos, what do u think?

You look beautiful!! Thank you for posting your experience. I am on day 15 and not totally happy with my nose. It still feels really big. It is reassuring to see how great your end result is.

U look great girl! I think my nose is really similar to yours so I was excited to see your post. Can you tell me what work you had done apart from shaving down the bridge and refining the tip? I'm hoping to do both as well as deproject my nose as much as I can, without it looking weird on my face lol! I love your result, it really suits you and looks completely natural, congrats!:)

Thanks, yes, the people i havent told dont see it.. Even not my sister and stepdad and my coworkers! I narrowed it just on top of the nostrils, felt like i had some extra Stuffing there before, looking like wings pointing down. And he shrunk my nostrils a little bit. And he also cut something between my lip and nose, so that my nose dont move so much when i smile.

1 year and 1 month since open rhino, pretty happy!!!

The 3th of january it was 1 year since my surgery. I am pretty satisfied! I do not think its perfect, but i dont think about my nose in every situasion anymore, a big relief!! My last visit to the surgeon was in september, and it was drooping a bit, so i massage it when i remember too. I actually

Congratulations!! You are beautiful... you where already beautiful before, but your new nose gives you a softer look. It looks super natural! It really looks great! It is so helpful to read post like yours and compare "notes". I am on day 15 experiencing similar feelings to yours around the same time, It is so helpful to see how the swelling does go down and how the nose gets more defined. So thank you so much for posting!! :)
