I have hated my nose since I was 11 and I just feel it is too big for my face. Unfortunately I inherited a Roman nose from my dad. Although I am proud of my Italian heritage, my nose has been a huge issue in my life and I am really self-concious about it. Throughout my school years I was teased for having a big nose and it really hurt my self-esteem. I will be 22 in March and I feel as though I am now in the right place in my life and I am having this surgery for the right reasons and it is going to make a big difference in the way I feel about myself. I am confident in my surgeon and felt that he was very understanding and easy to talk to when I had a consult with him. I have heard great things about him and feel that he will do an excellent job. I am realistic in the fact that I will never have a small nose but I want a nose that is more size appropriate for my face and more feminine. I am a university student and I am having my surgery over reading break so I am a little stressed about swelling and what not as I have a test the following Tuesday that I may have to write wearing my splint...any suggestions to minimize swelling and bruising would be much appreciated!! :)

I am having a really hard time right now. My face is super swollen and I have a sore throat and my face constantly throbs. I have been icing and taking pain killers which help a bit but not enough. I cant feel my upper lip or my front four teeth. I am scheduled to get my splint off on Monday at 2:45 and I really hope that when all the packing comes out that makes a huge difference

Yesterday I got my packing out and my stitches removed and although it was the weirdest sensation/experience ever it feels a thousand times better. Once the packing came out the swelling in my lower face went almost right away and even the bruises under my eyes seemed less apparent. I still have my cast on until next Monday but I can't wait to see the results! My nose already looks a lot different even with the cast on and I can already tell its a lot smaller! I am soo excited.
One month post-op today!!! So far the swelling has...
