Hi everybody, i am scheduld to have my rhino/septoplasty in a few days now. Ive had a problem with my nose since i was old enough to notice it, since i am a replica of my father while my sister has a cute little ski slope nose. Personally, i dont HATE my nose, because i have grown used to it, but it certainly bothers me. I always wear heavy eyemake to draw attention to my 'better' features and i cant wait to no have to worry about my nose anymore.
I am a little irritated because it has been hard for me to gain support throughout this journey. my family is pretty conservative and hey dont really understand. my fiance was dead set against it because he really likes my ethnic look and doesnt want me to change. luckily my surgeon seems to have a knack for preserving these qualities while still improving the appearance.

As far as my results i am really scared to be honest. My profile is really lovely, he did a great job on my tip as well, but the only thing is that it seems to curve to the right in the middle of the bridge. when i apply tape it doesnt look as bad but in pictures it is very obvious. Has anybody experienced this?? was it swelling and did it resolve on its own? im afraid that if my nose is actually crooked that it could be more apparent when the swelling goes down. I know this is not in my head because my fiance noticed it also. My next appt is in two weeks and i have a feeling he will tell me its too early to analyze and that it is just swelling but i am freaking out a bit..any advice??
*i am not sure i am comfortable to post pictures but i may if you really have some good advice i can email you.
