i had a nose job about 18 years ago to correct a very large hooked nose, over the years your nose changes many times, but i always felt the bridge on my nose was still larger than i would like, just a small correction really, so i went to see a rhinoplasty surgeon, who has carried out revised, rhinoplasty before, he said he could do a open procedure, and i would have the nose i always wanted, at this i was very excited, i arranged the surgery that day, so off i went. one week later cast come off, i just stood there looking back at myself, i was speechless, my eyes filled with tears,i looked at the surgeon and said what have you done to me, i had a very swollen nose, which is to be expected, it can take upto one year for the swelling to go down, i was prepared for all that, but i didnt expect a large scar straight across my nose, he also altered the tip, which he didnt have to touch, he made my tip hook over like a witch, i was so distraught, i walked out the nurse came after me, but i could talk, i was crying my eyes out, my tip used to slope up that was part of my nose i did like, there are no words of how i feel towards my surgeon, angry is nothing to how i really feel, two weeks later i went back to see the surgeon, i had to get a grip and face him, when i went in he told me, i must of knocked it, i feel despair, i looked at him and said, sir i have not not touched my nose it is too painful, he said the scar is one of those things, where they fold the skin back to work on a tip, if the skin is thin it leaves a scar,m he said its one of those things, he said if my nose does not look many better in six months he will re-do my nose, im absolutely gutted, i said i guess you wont be taking the after photos and putting your name to this will you!, i am now left with a hooked nose with a scar on it, my heart sinks everytime i look in the mirror, i would have christmas photos either, iu feel ugly and hopeless, in will not be having a another op with this surgeon and i am going to a solicitor, i have been told that the procedure, he did should have avoided that kind of mistake.
