The day of surgery was quite lovely (it's true!). A nurse helped me through the entire process, and patients are allowed to use a private exit/entrance for after surgery and post-op checkups.
Luckily, I didn't have any bruising, and while I'm not knowledgeable about the fine details of surgery, I'm sure Dr. Naficy's careful technique had something to do with it!
I am currently 3 months post op, and I have never felt or looked better! I don't think that this surgery has completely, drastically changed my life, and that was not what I was looking for. I can now breathe much better, and the results look very natural. If you are reading this and considering a rhino/septoplasty, I would definitely recommend that you research all you can and find out exactly what you are getting yourself into, and I would definitely recommend Dr. Naficy's clinic.
