It's Done, No Turning Back Now! - Georgia, GA

I'm African American and I'm getting my rhinoplasty April 24, 2013. I waited this long to post, because, i'm not so sure I wouldn't chicken out. I was beginning to think my level of nervousness was crazy, but I see now from all your post that what I think is extreme, is normal. I need to distract myself before I have a nervous break down. I'm having hump removed, bridge and flare narrowed. Wishing me and you all a safe surgery, speedy & safe recovery and au naturel results.

I'm sitting in parking lot waiting on my 1st post op appointment time, which has been delayed (doc in surgery). I cannot wait to get this darn nose packing out!. Swelling is reduce significantly. It's now 9:51am, 11am can't get here soon enough. I pray the Dr doesn't get delayed any later....

Day 5, 30min to go for nose packing removal, can't wait. Come on 11am....!

Good doctor, lots of follow up call by staff. Staff was friendly and professional. This review is based on less than 24hr post surger. I Can't grade my rhino yet, my nose is well bandag. No major pain. Breathing through the mouth is the hardest part,result is constant dry mouth. Ignore typos, its 4am, im medicated and sleep deprived, due to mouth breathing and dry mouth.

I was told to expect swelling for a day or two after nose packing removal but not the case so far. It did swell for a little but its actually subsiding now 4 hours later. I'm gonna get some well deserved sleep.

Thank you for posting! How did the nose packing removal go? For me that was the least pleasant part of the whole thing, such a relief when it's out though!

OMG....I was so busy worrying about the surgery itself, that I focus on nothing else. Ignorance is ”sometimes” bliss, because had I truly comprehend the discomforts of mouth breathing, I really would have flaked out or stressed even more over the entire process. My appointment was for 10:15a, I got there before 9am, that's how desperate I was to get it out!.
