I'm ukranian and arab, so naturally you can imagine my nose would be a little weird. I was self conscious about my nose ever since I was a little kid, when I would get teased about it. I got teased about it all throughout middle and high school and at age 15 I decided I wanted to get it done. I researched some doctors but my mom told me to wait a few years to see how I grew. I forgot about it for a couple years and then the insecurity really started to bother me recently so I went to a few consults to see what they could do. I did not like how downturned my nose was, how wide it was, and how it seemed flat looking. I also had a small bump which was not that much of a concern to me. I scheduled 4 consults, but one of the doctors never showed up. One of the doctors was too expensive and seemed like a salesman in the fact that he had a bunch of attractive women wondering around the office doing minuscule tasks. The other seemed like he would do such a drastic change because he wanted to put in an artificial graft to raise the tip. So I went with my doctor because he was affordable and seemed honest and like he would do a natural nose. I didn't feel he tried to force me or pressure me to go with him.
So the day of my surgery was stressful. The anesthesiologist was late so I was waiting a while and had a lot of anxiety. But eventually I had the surgery and woke up and the only thing that hurt was my left eye. I threw up a bit from the anesthesia but I was fine. There was very little pain throughout the whole thing and I was sleeping through the night by the day 2. For the amount of work he did, breaking the bones and all, I thought I healed well. I was not very bruised, the bruising I had cleared after day 3. I went in for day 5 for a checkup and day 8, today, I got my cast off. This is my initial results and I lovee them. I'll hopefully be posting more pics as time goes on.
Well in a few days it will officially be a year...

Oh, and about people noticing. So many people didn't even notice I had a nose job! People were saying, you look so much prettier now but I don't know what it is. BUt then there were some people who did talk behind my back and say I did have a nose job lol but I denied it. Quite a few of my friends know I got it done and they all used to say I didn't need it, but they all agree now that it looks so much better and many of them want to get it done. I've just learned that you're the one person in life that focuses on your nose the most, so when you notice a big difference, other people might not really be examining you that closely to notice! Which is a relief.
