honestly, I'm the happiest i've ever been just knowing that in a month I will be able to do it. I've considered this for years, I'm 18 now but I can recall in 6th grade looking around and seeing if other kids had as large of noses as me. I've done a ton of research and I am more excited than nervous.
CAN NOT WAIT!!

Met Dr. Kane yesterday, who seems absoltuely fantastic. He's extremely nice and made me feel comfortable about the surgery, which is booked for next tuesday. Now, the only problem is that my health insurance sucks and wants to charge an extra $10,000 on top of the cost of the rhinoplasty. If I have to go through the insurance I'm going to have to find another Doctor :( which sucks because Dr. Kane knew exactly what I needed! I'll update once I know more.

I'm starting to get super nervous. Idk how to calm my nerves. I couldn't sleep last night and I highly doubt I'll be able to tonight

On my way to the hospital now!! AHHHHH lol Surprisingly I slept extremely well last night. Now I'm ready to be done with the surgery! I'll be posting pics in a couple hours when I get home!

OUT OF SURGERY!!! Feeling really weak and stuffy and my eyes are super swollen but besides that the pain is definitely bearable. I don't remember anything after they gave me the medication to calm me down besides waking up and having a weird dream. After I woke up I was really nauseous so they gave mess for that and some pain killers. My blood pressure dropped a lot once I tried to get up so it took a while to actually leave. Now I'm in bed and feeling alright!

laying in bed, relaxed. I'm lucky because my doctor didn't put any packing so I just have a lot of pressure. No swelling or bruising yet and it's been about 7 hours. Still a bit nauseous and having difficulty using the rest room but I'm honestly feeling pretty well!

Surgery was yesterday. Stilla absolutely no...

Surgery was yesterday. Stilla absolutely no bruising. I took a pain killer at 8 and then another at 12 and I was able to sleep until now. Most of the pain that I felt after all the anesthesia wore off is gone, which might be because of the pain killer still. Recovery is going a lot smoother than I thought it would be.

Not doing too well today. I don't have any pain and extremely minor brusing but I'm super congested and can't breath at all which is causing my throat to hurt. I know my surgery was only yesterday but the internet is freaking me out and making me feel like I'm gonna be like this for months. starting to break down.

Day 2 post op. I'm feeling SOOOO much better. I slept for 12 hours last night and now I feel like I just have a severe cold and that's why I can't breath right. I hope I keep feeling better! No bruising yet!!

Day 3 Post op. LITERALLY NO BRUISING!!! I'm so...

Day 3 Post op. LITERALLY NO BRUISING!!! I'm so happy. Most the facial swelling has gone down and I can kind of breath and smell out of my left nostril!! Only complaint is that I still havent been able to use to the bathroom so my stomach is extremely bloated and it hurts but I'm gonna call my surgeon today and ask him if its okay to take some medicine for that. I have no idae how I managed no brusing... I have been taking 2000 mg of Vitamin C everyday for the past 2 months and also put arnica cream on my eyes the day of the surgery right before I went to sleep that night, or maybe its just because im lucky. I've been looking at my nose at the angle that I used to hate the most on this three way mirror and the bump is completely gone!!! I'm so happy!! and such an easy recovery period now!! I'm gonna try to leave my house today and go outside for a walk or something. Getting my cast off Monday!!

Day four post op feeling amazing. I can breath out of my left nostril, no facial bruising what so ever. Now I just have to get my right side of my nose to work! Two days away from seeing my nose!!!!

Day 5 post op.
Still can't breath out of my right nostril but besides that my life is pretty much back to normal. I went out the past two days for dinner and around town and got some funny looks for the cast but besides that I'm feeling absolutely fabulous. Tomorrow is the big day! Getting the cast off! I had an awesome recovery, it was extremely quick.

Day 6 post op and cast off!!! Soooo happy!!! I know it's still swollen and he said it'll be two more weeks before more of the swelling goes down but I love it already :) super easy recovery, honestly getting my wisdom teeth removed was worse lol. SO HAPPY!

Officially a week post op!! Today I finally got some breathing back on my right nostril. Really happy about that. I know it's swollen but I can see it going down. I'm honestly so happy with my result and so pleased with Dr. Kane not only for his kindness and masterpiece, but also for being so gentle that I had no bruising!!
