I've never liked my nose much but wasn't concerned with it to the point that I would undergo surgery, even though some of my friends made jokes about it. However, recently I've become very self-conscious about it and started looking for a surgeon. I was planning to do breast augmentation as well. In fact, I was going to do breast first. One of my friends recommended dr. Sadeh, she had her breast done by him, and it looks very natural. I scheduled consultation with him, and liked how professional he was. He made me feel very comfortable about the surgery. I scheduled the surgery for breast for jan 26 so I would have a week to stay home before coming back to school. However, reading some scary reviews and seeing some of the pics on this website, I got scared. In addition, my friend started talking me out of this, saying that my body might reject implants because it something not belonging to my body and my immune system might fight it, or I might get infection etc... It's not like I changed my mind to do breast augmentation, I just don't feel comfortable at this moment to do it. But i am ready to do my nose! Haha kinda unexpected, I didn't wait for it like other people for months, I'm doing it this sat jan 26. Dr. Sadeh didn't mind that I changed my mind, and explained me how my nose is going to look. I saw pics of his work in his site and liked it so hopefully my new nose is gonna be beautiful. Wish me luck!

It has been 72 hours since surgery. I feel good. Swelling went down to my cheeks, but as long as I don't have it on my eyes I don't care anymore :) I noticed thought, that after 7 pm swelling is coming back, and even though during the day I look better, in the evening I look worse. I stopped using ice packs, because it feels good while I use then but once I stop, it feels like it swells more. The area under my eyes is turning yellowish, so I guess that's a good sign. Sometimes I feel itchy/burning feelings on the tip of my nose and want to scratch it but hold myself back. I wanted to mention how great my doctor is. His wife (and also an office manager) has been very nice and she texted me the day after the surgery to see how I am. I texted her yesterday to ask if I could use some gentle toner to clean my forehead and cheeks since it gets oily, she said that's fine. I also asked about cleaning my nose, because I haven't been doing anything about it, and she didn't let me touch it, they would clean it in the office tomorrow, Wednesday, when they take off the splint. It made me feel like they really care about their patients, and I'm not just a number in the office. Also, I don't have any family in states, and in fact, my family doesn't even know about the surgery. It's not because they wouldn't approve it (my mom and brother had their noses done because it were broken), but I didn't want to tell them so they wouldn't worry about me. My mom is super sensitive, and I know she wouldn't sleep, and call me every hour to see how I am and would make up stories in her head. So I didn't tell anyone. But dr sadeh and Mikal made me feel very comfortable and being taken care of, so i do appreciate that.
