Hello Everyone im 23 and from the UK
I have read this site daily for the last few months and it has really helped with tips and what to expect
i have wanted a nose job as long as i can remeber i have been teased for the size of my nose numerous times. And it really got me down
but i saved up and now am i can afford the nose job and have the time off work

so my operation was scheduled for 2 weeks ago but got cancelled as i had a spot on my nose of all places the night befor
and safe to say i was very upset!!


im Scheduled for tomorrow morning at 7.30 am at Spire Group near me in leeds

i have been the worst person the last two weeks ive been upset and moody and paranoid over every little blemish on my face as i dont want the same thing to happen tomorrow

i was wondering if anyone had any tips for me and i am getting more scared by the hour?

ill uploads some befor pics soon as im just at work lol

Good evening staci I had mine done today I was so nervous but then they put me to sleep and I woke up and it was done I know what you mean about can't believe we have done it it seems surreal I'm just sat in my hospital room just eaten and had some tablets how are you doing? My bruising is slowly coming on my corners of my eyes are black haha xx

All done

Just 8 hours post op and feeling groggy but I've eaten and had tablets my bruising is coming along nicely
Not in much pain just groggy and like a head cold headache and sore face


Hi! I can't wait to see your results. We kind of have the same thing going. My surgery was on Monday. I feel like crap today :( I am swollen with minimal bruising. I can barely breathe through my nose.

Awwww I hope you feel ok2222 am not doing to bad at the moment but I'm a mouth breather and never use my nose hardest part for me is drinking as then I can't breathe xx

Day 1

So last night I didn't really sleep we'll not due to pain just due to being in hospital and sleeping at a high angle. This morning my face has swollen up and my throat is sore and also I've been spitting up bloody alof but my doctor says it's better to spit it out other wise it can make you sick so don't worry like I did yesterday it's all totally normal
I'm not in pain as such tbh it just uncomfortable and swollen can't speak to people very well
But overall am 24 hours in and seem to be feeling quite happy about it all


It must be a relief to be on the other side of the surgery! What sort of spot did you have that caused your surgery to be canceled? I haven't heard of that before.

Hang in there and please keep us updated on how you're doing!

Day 2

Good morning
So I slept for a good 4-5 hours straight last night which was really needed which I feel happy about
My pain is still low just the discomfort and dry mouth when I woke up bruising is still coming up.
I haven't been to the toilet yet and wondered if anyone knew if I could take some tablets to make me go or just wait for my body to do its thing???

Day 8

I put some make up on today even tho my face is still so swollen and I look a bit like an avatar lol
I love my nose I just can't wait until it gets abit more shape to it and less swollen and round xx


I am jealous of your lack of swelling haha. I mean I'm sure you still have swelling as it's only day 8, but your nose looks refined already! Happy for you :)

A great result! I can relate to what you said at the beginning about being teased for the size of your nose. This is was what people targeted me with at school and even into work. I am still unsure about my result sadly, but time will tell. Congratulations anyway.
