I am a 26 year old cheer coach. I have always thought I was a pretty girl, but I don't like my nose much. Well meaning as he was my dad use to tease me about how wide it was when I was a kid, and I developed a complex. I have always felt like my nose "messed up" my face. So after two consultations I decided to go through with it. My first consultation was in 2010, but at the time I was a struggling college student that couldn't afford it.

I'm not in any real pain, but I'm very uncomfortable. As to be expected I can't breath at all from my nose. I want to blow so bad, but I know I can't. Luckily Dr. B didn't use any packing because that's what I was most afraid of. I didn't sleep at all last night, but I'm a night owl so I just watched TV. I felt like I had dried blood in throat this morning but I have drank so much water that it's gone.
I'm trying not to even look at my nose but from what I can see the shape is super cute. Even my grandma said so and she's pretty honest. I have a little bruising around my right eye, and I think this may get worse. The swiss therapy mask are awesome and I will be ordering more.
I will post a pic and keep everyone updated.
Today is day four. Yesterday was the worse. My...
