As a 19 year old girl with petite features/body I have always felt paranoid about the large size of my nose. I feel self-conscious when people look at me from the side or even in bright lighting., Although I come across confident, internally I feel the opposite. I fninished university in May, so with a 5month holiday in front of me, I felt this was the perfect opputunity to fly to Cyprus and finally get it done. My grandparents live over here, so they spent several months speaking with surgeons. A recommended surgeon and a cousin of my grandman has been chosen. I met them on the 25th, operation booked for the 29th. Nervous even to the point where I'm having second thoughts, but I'm sure it will be worth it.

31st: appetite normal, soft foods best though. Bed rest. Surprised at how I just have a mere nose "plaster" on my face, quite comfortable. Breathing a lot better, swelling reducing by hour!!!!! I can already see a difference in my nose size, and will continue to reduce over next few months. Very excited to see it finally when cast comes off next week. But I know the tip will not be that different as this takes the longest to heal. I will upload pics as soon as I can. Currently very excited and happy I've undergone procedure, been a lot easier then expected. Obviously it's not over yet, but I'm sure can only get better. I'm gona try and heal as much as possible before I fly home, despite the utter boredom here. One of the hardest things has I'm fact been not being able to see properly, due to not be able to wear glasses and being advised to not wear contacts. I think tomorrow I will wear contacts though as fed up of headaches and swelling reduced.
I AM OVER THE MOON WITH MY NEW NOSE!!!! BEST THING...
