Two Month to Go Before I Get It Done!!! France, FR

Hello everyone, I recently decided to have a...

Hello everyone, I recently decided to have a rhino, I've wanted it for a very long time because I don't really like the way my nose looks like. I have a bulbous tip, my nostrils are very wide I basically stuff 2 fingers at once (ah!)
Anyway... My nose doesn't bother me from the side look. I take pictures all the time especially when it's party which is basically 3 times a week
And I'm just tired of having to chose sides based on which light will compliment my nose.
So I decided about a month ago to have to see a surgeon (my surgeon is French - I live in France and it was easier to get it done here)

This is what will be done:

Reduce my bulbous tip, Get rid of my smallish bump. Refine both sides of my nose (I think it's very wide)
Narrow my nostrils. BTW I'll be have an open rhino and that's what scares scares me the most, not the procedure but the keloids I'm still struggling with wether having an opened or closed one. Well I'm supposed to see the surgeon at the end of the month and I'll arise my questions/doubts.

Oh forgot to tell I'm sure everyone has an ideal nose (celebrity nose). Even tho we look nothing alike I'd love to have something that looks like Sodraya's.

Anyhow will keep you posted

Done

It's finally over, I've the cast on

Day #2

Well... It feels weird to wake up and to have a new bruising nose but it's still very cool. And I'm very excited. I have no pain or whatsoever, obviously baby nose is very swollen and it looks completely : enormous, bizarre, weird. But I have faith and I do hope the result will be amazing
Thanks to all of you for your support!!!!

Day #3

Hey
Day 3 here, hum? How hard is it not to breath, I don't if I mentioned to you guys that I had a rhino and a septoplasty at the same time. Really not easy not to breathe.

Any way, I don't how to feel about my nose, I don't even know if it has changed, it's has another shape for sure but doesn't look cute so far. Any I'll throw some photos of day 3
Excuse my hair, I'll get it done pretty soon!!!

Day -1 till cast off

Hey everyone,

I'm 7 days post op. I've had 4 difficult days, I couldn't breathe most of these days, nor sleep. And today most of it is gone, my swelling seems to have gone down (thank god I stopped smoking).
Tho because of the septoplasty I think my left nostril is very very swollen inside, I don't know if it makes sense to you?
Anyway, it's only 1 day before I get the cast off, and guys not only I'm nervous to see the result but I'm also very excited. I'm hoping the surgeon did good and that the end result will be nice, well by nice I mean I want the result to be what I did expect to have.
So this is what I did last time I spoke to my surgeon pre-op, I took a picture of me where where I had a highlight and contour (make up) because I think that the moment I love my face the most it's when I play with make up and re-shape my face and the way I want to, I usually make my nose look thinner and I love that, just hoping that the surgeon really got that!

Anyway cast will be off in 1 day, I will keep you posted

Sorry for some reason I'm just not seeing your rhino journey on here. You are very pretty! Hope everything is turning out the way you expected!

You're gorgeous! I can't wait to see your new nose! I had an open rhino too on 6/30. My incision site is a little red and scabby. I'm too very concerned with scarring but everything I've read and my surgeon say that with time they typically heal very well. My only concern is that I'm worried people at work will notice and ask me stupid questions lol.

I wasn't able to breathe at all the first day and what got me through was a little spray bottle with water to spray my dry mouth. It was hard/uncomfortable to drink out of a straw for me so the spray bottle worked wonders.

How long did it take before you can breathe??

At least your surgeon took the risk to do an open surety At the end mine was a closed one. I'm not even going right now, even my mum calls me a little monster. Did the surgeon not see my black skin before he got me white cast looooolll

I had an open rhino to remove a dorsal hump and raise the tip. My surgeon chooses to do open or closed depending on the situation. My nose bridge was a bit crooked so that's why he chose to do an open one. I wish I didn't have to get an open one just because of the visible scar. I still love my nose but I could've done without the visible scar haha. I'm 11 days post op and my nose still gets a little stuffy but breathing is good off and on. Hope your breathing gets better soon!

Yep it was supposed to be, but then I have changed my mind. Wanted to have a huge summer with something that looks like a nose practically done!!!

Congrats the worst part is over:)

Yayyyy it's over. I would say that's the worst part but the worst of the worst it's the fact that I cannot breathe at all. You could make me eat what ever you want because I have no test. But it's still very cool and I'm very happy :-))

Hey everyone!! Wanted to do a little follow up... I had another erring withy surgeon yesterday: Basically he refused to do an opened surgery, he said that it was to much risk (keloid wise). So I'll be having a closed surgery. And I decided to have my surgery sooner and sooner is on the 8TH of July... Guess who is pretty scared?????? I'm scared but I'm so ready. Anyway guys will keep you posted

I'm from the UK so I'm intrigued at the possibility of a rhinoplasty surgeon trusted to do a black woman this side of the pond. Has he done a lot of black rhinoplasty? Did you see pics? Keep us posted!

Hey deary!! Well he has done ethnic rhino before and I've seen results and they looked great. Now I have a closed friend who has had a rhino and had a cast off yesterday. And the result is just amazing, her tip has been refined her nose is really cute, she is not black tho she's from Tunisia but still she has very thick and dark skin so....

Interesting. Is it really going to cost under $2000 or is that a typo?
  • Reply
It will really coat me €1300 because I'm have a septoplasty and a rhino Both at the same time

Gosh that's cheap! I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this. I had fully planned to go to the US for mine.
