Alarplasty - Bangkok, Thailand
My nose has been an issue for me for a while. I...
At the consultation, my doctor talked me out of having a tip reduction because he said it was a nice nose and many Thai people come in requesting for their noses to be longer, like mine!!! Isn't that funny! So we compromised and just had the alarplasty - nostril reduction.
The nostrils were done at the same time as my eye bags. He cut a bit off the outside of my nostrils, the bits that were connected to my face, and brought them in a little. I felt nothing! The doctor was marking my nostrils, next thing I know, I'm in some weird trippy video game, almost like a funny dream. Then I woke up and he was cutting my aha bags out.
Right now, my fave is swollen and I look like a chipmunk but in 1 week I get my stitches out & I hope to be able to see the final result.
2 weeks post op
I still have stitches inside my nostrils but they're not visible & the dissolvable kind so they'll just pop out whenever they're ready i guess. One side of my nose has a scar, the other doesn't, it's great! But i'm applying cream to the scar, see what happens. Overall, the change in my face is minimal but enough so i'm not self conscious anymore.
This doctor is amazing. He won't do a surgery if he thinks its not necessary and he really gives you his honest opinion. My nose appears to be even, not at all lop sided or crooked. I love this guy!
