Overall happy with my new nose. It's been a few years and I have decided to have another consultation with Dr. Pearson about a revision due to the fact that my tip is still a little bulbous and long. But, this is a much better improvement of the original nose ! I had a lot of swelling post op and a few kenalog shots that helped a little. Will keep you posted of my results!
My Rhinoplasty experience
I had a lot of swelling post op and on the right side of my nose had this bump. It still was an improvement over my original nose. I have to look at that before pic to be reminded sometimes! Lol. My Dr tried a few kenalog shots which did wonders but then the swelling came back a few months later. Right now I am considering a revision. It depends on what my surgeon thinks is the possibility if a satisfactory outcome. I'm so dreading another surgery. At this point it gets quite swollen when I exercise or it's warm out so I'm not sure what that's all about. We'll wish me luck and will keep you posted with what he has to say and what I decide.
Hi... I had a consultation with Dr. Pearson yesterday and he agrees that the tip is too long. So, I'm scheduled for a revision May 7th. I'm excited! He's doing it free of charge so I'm so happy about that too !!! I have 100% confidence in him and just can't wait! Will post pics after. :-)
Nasal tip work
I went in for my open tip plasty on 5/7... It seems to have went very well. I'm still really swollen so I'll post some pics when it goes gown a bit. Dr. Pearson did it in his office. I wasn't nervous until I walked in the room and sat in the chair! I was awake for the procedure which lasted about an hour. I probably could have used a mild sedative though, lol although I felt nothing just some tugging. Also, I had off from work for a few days and although he said I could go to work the next day I was glad I had the time off. At least a day because my nose was very swollen the next day. Will keep you posted. :-)
A month after revision
This is so much better! I'm so glad I decided to do it... I was really second guessing whether I wanted to go through the recovery again. But, this was pretty much just tip work so it was a much quicker recovery . I'm so happy with the results!!! The tip could probably be a little smaller but I might still have some swelling. But it's such an improvement regardless. I see my Dr this Wed. so we'll see what he thinks.
