26 Years Old Male Rhinoplasty - Mexico, MX

Hi everyone, I'm writing this because I want to...

Hi everyone, I'm writing this because I want to share my experience and maybe I could use some advice ;)

My name is Alex, I'm 26 years old and I'm from Mexico, I have always disliked the shape of my nose, specially the profile (hump), so I've been wanting to get a rhinoplasty for a long time.
Well, it finally happened, on June 22, I'm in my second day post-op and I don't know how to react, I'm really swollen and bruised, is it normal to get this bruised and swollen?!, I look nothing like myself, and it's a little scary, what do you guys think?.


Read some of the reviews on here....everyone gets super swollen and bruised! ;)

Thanks so much for starting your story on RealSelf. Yes, swelling and bruising are totally normal. In fact, it can take 6 months to a year for you to see your final results. Hang in there. Hopefully things will get better and better in the coming weeks and months.
