Hi all. I had minor rhino (2 hr procedure) about 20 days ago. My only request was to narrow the width. Unfortunately my nose seems a little shorter and the tip is rotated upward. Initially, I looked like Miss Piggy right after the procedure, but I knew it was due to the swelling. To top it off, I had a sinus infection. So I was feeling REAL good.
Anyhow, good news is the swelling has gone down so my nose tip is straighter. It is still rotated upward more than I would like and appears shorter in length. I am missing my old nose--it was more exotic looking, even though it was wider than I would have liked. After looking at pics before my surgery i started crying because I regret my decision. Another issue I am dealing with is symmetry of the nostrils. They are not completely even.
My Dr is supposed to be among the best in Asian rhino. Perhaps I just need to be more patient. Sigh- i didn't realize this would be such an emotional process and am also regretting that I had to mess with what God and my lovely parents gave me. I hope this story ends well!
