Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty 24 Year Old in Boston - Boston, MA
I finally took the plunge and decided to have my...
I did this whole process pretty quickly. My first consultation was 1 month ago and now my surgery is this Thursday 6/20/13. I am admittedly VERY nervous, but reading through other's experiences on this site has been unbelievably helpful, so I figured I would share my journey as well. I am traveling to NYC until Wednesday night, so hopefully this will take my mind off things and prevent me from getting too worked up about the surgery.
Such a huge disappointment, so upset - 6 months
Anyone dealing with a similar situation who would like to share their thoughts/feelings would be so great. I am feeling depressed and alone. My friends and family say my nose looks nice, but I am just so distraught over the fact that I traded my bulbous, uneven humped nose for a nice profile but an extremely crooked nose. I just feel hurt and disappointed and shocked this was even a possibility, my nose looks nothing like the photos I was shown.
On top of all of this I had an absolutely horrible recovery. I acquired a skin infection after 4 days and had to immediately have my cast removed. I was in excruciating pain and my doctor mistakenly prescribed Baclofen... and I am allergic to sulfa. Needless to say I suffered an allergic reaction before I was switched to another antibiotic. The whole experience was entirely miserable and was a huge mistake. I will deal with my new nose because there is no chance I can go through any of this again, I am just so disgusted I have to look at myself every day with a nose that, to me, looks deformed.
Am I being hypercritical of myself? Is it really as bad as I think it is. I just don't even know anymore.
