so doc as paitent and kind. he does 2-3 if not 4 surguries a day, tons of before and after pics, and plenty of girls prancing about with thier new perfect noses. I have gotten it done last monday, I look like a pig and my nose is pointier that It originally was. give it time and dont judge yet, says doc. he better be beeping right. My nose was well shaped and no bumps. just long and like a 80* angle type pretty much.. getting restless with the splint. gunna take it off next saturday. I can see shape difference, ANYONE with experince in tip swelling? did you hate it? ( its bugging me, and the upturned nose) can you tell me if you got better? 90% it will. Im picky and want more advice/experiences

Ok, been not very long, about a day right? I feel...

ok, been not very long, about a day right? I feel alot better, got my energy back and the brusing under my eyes is pretty much gone. going to get the splint off tommrow. WILL POST PIC, nervous as hell...

Thanks for sharing on RealSelf! Remember that your nose will look drastically different to you now because you're not used to it. Most likely you'll adjust to the new look over time (besides the fact that the swelling should come down, etc.) Please keep us posted!

Hi, I hope all goes well for you. I know its really hard but remember that your nose will change considerably over the next several months. I had my rhinoplasty 9 months ago. It was around 5 months before it settled into its shape. Mostly I had tip swelling that simply lingered. When the cast came off my nose, it was swollen. It was kind of amazing watching it change over the months. Also my skin on my nose peeled & was very oily for about 3 weeks following the cast coming off. I also had an alar cinch suture put in to make my nose less wide, so I had a swollen top lip and it pulled whenever I'd smile. That tightness upon smiling lasted around 6 months, progressively decreasing. But I can tell you its all worth it. I dont know if this would help you, but how I got through it all (I had a lot of work done, including facelift) was when I'd look in the mirror, instead of analyzing every detail, I'd think to myself, "Thats a work in progress." Express all your concerns with your doctor and think about how happy you'll be with the new nose, which will be sooner than you know it. Youre very beautiful and youre going to be so happy once the healing takes place. Good luck

SPLINT OFF! I look great! fake as an old lady...

SPLINT OFF!
I look great! fake as an old lady with botox, but I am very pleased with the shape, extremely graceful and not to much of an unturned tip, which will go in a few months. upper lip 'out of order' for about a month or so...BEAR WITH ME, I know I look strange but this isnt even 2 weeks post OP and I STILL look pretty good! shower and plucked eyebrows this is week 1 and a day!
Your results are beautiful, as are you! Enjoy!!

hi where did you get your surgery done in turkey? i am thinking of going to comfort zone surgery

Hi, I have heard about comfort zone ( quiet expensive) but they have their own apartment and cooked food, which is a huge help. They have full story on YouTube. Make sure to go through with the surgeon on what you want ( straight or upturned nose). Will it effect around lips ( distance and smile). Do your check list. Arnica ( swelling) Cottonwool buds ( runny nose) Soft tissues ( runny nose).
