I had septoplasty and rhinoplasty on december 12, 2012! my septum was in the shape of an S and very deviated! I also had a hump on the bridge of my nose. I had a car wreck about 4 years ago and it really made the features i already hated about my nose more prominent!

I actually found this website through google and started reading stories and looking at pics of everyone and it gave the push i needed to go get a consultation! The insurance approved the septum but i worked for about 6 months to save the rest of the money for the hump to be removed! Of course any surgery has its challenges but this has a reward in the end!

Got the cast off today! I guess i wasnt expecting it to swell so quick! does anyone have any tips to help or how long it lasted before it started to look more normal? my septum was very deviated to the right so they did alot moving it back to the left so that side is very swollen at the bridge the tip looks pretty normal!
