OK Finally Did It! - Baltimore, MD

So far I am healing..not expecting a Kelly Rowland...

So far I am healing..not expecting a Kelly Rowland nose; just a softer version of mine..Friday I went to the hospital (White Marsh) the nurses was very kid a and attentive saw Dr Boheine very handsome smiling I was so glad I was very nervous..As this was my second nose job the first one was not what I expected,,Dr Boheines presence reassured me I was in good hands..I am very grateful this is my third day little swelling and bruising..my nose is kinda stuffy..but I feel Good waiting for bandages to come off on Wednesday...I will post pictures soon:) so far so good!!

First Nose Job

I felt this nose was still too wide..a year later I relieved a cortisone shot and my nose swelled up even wider..

Update for Review..

That first review was not to good OK I am 4 days into recovery..The nurses Dawn and 2nd Dawn was so funny..They kept me laughing so much I guess they knew I was nervous;( Dr Bohene was wonderful I couldn't asked for a better surgeon( I truly believe this man is an ANGEL)..His voice is calm I mean his touch is reassuring ..I told him I was not looking for a kelly rowland nose I just wanted a softer version of my own...I already have big eyes and lips to fill out my nose..I was gonna go with Dr Naderi but his quote was $11.000 plus I heard Dr Bohene specialized in ethnic noses...so here I am feeling good little pain..nose is still stuffy but minimum bruising...I am swelling but should subside...I'm just glad its out the way...so far so good..I will post more pis when the bandages come off:)

Ok 6 days after Revision Rhinoplasty..

Alright I actually like this nose better... it's more refined.. I do know it will take some time for the swelling to subside...and the natural shape to fall in but so far I am pleased.. Smiling is a little awkward..but I'm getting use to it...I will update in a month or 2 see you guys later...hope this helps:)

more pictures..

Hi, Thanks for the feedback..I would say it cost me around $8,000.00 but it was so worth it I never liked my nose as a little girl...So I decided to go with Dr B he is a good surgeon..this man has some kind of magical powers or something...I am actually happy with my nose today . The only thing is my scars are taking a while to heal..but it's getting better...Please go with Dr B you wont be disappointed..promise:)

I cant wait for my new look too. Take care...

Hi , Thanks for the compliments, Actually my surgery is going better then i expected!! I am doing good my nose looks great...The only thing is Dr B gave me an injection to keep the swelling down...it did'nt hurt though..You will be glad you did it. I feel more confident about my new nose, I finally feel comfortable in my own skin...good luck :)

Looking great!

I wish you the best healing. May I ask what he did? Did he do the bridge, or just augment/narrow the tip? I hope the swelling continues to go down quickly. Please be careful massaging/touching the nose--I learned that the hard way (pinched a blood vessel without thinking) as the framework settles. Arnica gel helped me a lot with bruising and was a great massage gel.

DR Bohene did a closed Rhinoplasty with ear cartiladge.... as you can see he narrowed the nose..and I think he said he gave me a shot after the surgery..It's still hard at the tip and I'm still in pain but it's getting better...

Did he specifically say you would swell less with closed? That was the worst part about open rhinoplasty--the swelling.

Yeah I swelled a lot but it's going down...I am so happy I went through with the surgery I was not at first....

You look great. He did a awesome job. Be mindful that your nose will continue to shrink for up to a year.

You are really swollen, but you can already see it's a better shape! Good luck :)

So far so good. cant wait to see it in about 2 or 3 months once it starts to take on its final shape. I like others are also planning a revision with Dr. Kofi. Very exciting!! You go girl.

It's much narrower now. The tip is obviously and as expected is very swollen. Wishing you a smooth recovery. Thanks for the update.

It looks smaller even with the swelling, so far so good.

I'm glad you're happier this time around! You do look like you're still swollen. I'm excited to see how it changes over the coming weeks and months. You're a beautiful lady!

So far so good. Once the swelling goes down your nose will be even smaller.
