My Rhinoplasty Journey - Huntington Beach, CA

For a long time I though my nose was just to big for my face that it overwhelmed and unbalanced my face a lot. So the morning of august 16th i had my rhinoplasty done. Its now been 24 hours sense then and I am glad i got through the first night as I think that is the hardest. I trust my doctor completely and I am glad I chose him.

I didn't have a hump, but he shaved down the bolbas nose i had, Narrowed the long part of my nose and made my nostrils smaller.

Hey Nutritionbabe-it's day 3 for me. Glad to hear yours is going good so far. Mine's been rather painful but I'm sure it'll be worth it. I still have drip pad too, they said I could take it off after 2 days but I'm still draining so no sense in taking it off yet.

I'm still wearing the drip pad too because I find that after putting the saline in...it all just drips down.

It was so funny actually, i was going to schedule my rhinoplasty on october 12 but my doctors assistant called me and said that someone had cancelled there surgery on the 16th which when she called me was a week away. She said if i made it to this date that i could save on the procedure. I ended up saving $1250, so that worked out. I got it done early and saved money. I will heal earlier then i though within this year. good stuff! I am on a mission now!. I am going to do a Brittney Lewis makeover! Next procedure is Breast enhancement!! yay!! I'm going to start saving now.

Hey guys I am on day 6. My bandages were removed yesterday. I am struggling to come to termss with my new nose. It looks so much smaller and without any bridge or strong definition at all. I had a ENT surgeon for corrective septum and Rhinoplasty Open. I don't know how I am going to return to work or be in the public eye as I look so very different...
