Loving my new nose! - After many years I decided I am happy with the results so far - Colombia, CO

Hello, My name is Angela, After many years I decided I am happy with the results so far.

Surgery was on Monday, August 27 and it went well, I came back yesterday so the doctor changed the tape and thought me how to change it every week for 3 more weeks... My nose is still swollen and I have a little bruising around my eyes but its minimal. I bought arnicare gel today. Just wanted to share that

Today is day 12, I changed my tape, so I was able...

today is day 12, I changed my tape, so I was able to take some pics that I am sharing here, My nose is so much better, and the bruising and swelling are markedly improved.

Today is day 23, I'm glad I took my tape off...

Today is day 23, I'm glad I took my tape off today, I can see a big difference from last week, still a lot swollen between my eyes, I look like a pig/alien mixed. I hope my nose tip will drop down a little bit.. I'm posting some pics, any comments? :)

Hello, one month after my surgery, I think I look ok, but now I have some concerns about my scars, inside my nostrils, the thing is that I didn't bring enough pills for the inflammation when I came back from Colombia, I tough the inflammation would go away naturally and it did but very slow compared with a person taking the pills, they are called celebrex and they are not ovt, My tip nose is so hard, so I called my doctor last week and he toll me I should have not stopped taking the medicine, and that I should get them asp because they not only help me with the inflammation but also to prevent scar tissue forming (fibrosis) My family sent me the medication but UPS required more clarification or description for this medicine and clearing from the FDA... I hope I can get the medicine sent to me ASAP and that is not too late to continue taking it. I guess this is one of many reasons why surgery abroad is so risky.. Anyway, I hope this is just a minor issue, other than that, I feel great but I know I was very lucky getting this procedure done just 2 weeks before my trip back home and not having complications or regrets. Sorry about my poor english. I just wanted to share that... I am also posting a recent pic. Any comments?, thanks!

I'm sorry, I meant to say OTC not ovt :)

I feel great! I think this was the best decision I've made. I love my new nose. The tip went down a little bit more but I think my nose looks more natural now. I dont have to avoid pictures any more. 2012 was the best year ever and from now on I just feel more confident and happy.

Your nose turned out so petite and feminine. I'm jealousy you only paid $3100, and it turned out so well haha. Congrats on your lovely nose! You look fantastic.

Hey, Angela. I think your original nose wasn't bad at all! But I have to admit that your new nose does look great! I think the noses that have the little scoop in them are beautiful! Looking forward on seeing more pics as time passes even though I don't think your nose looks very swollen. Thanks for sharing!
