I have considered doing my nose since I was a teenager. I never liked the pointy, wide nose look of my nose. I want my nose to fit my face. I had my pre-op today! I was excited but now I have mixed emotions, I guess this is normal. I trust the doctor who I chose. I think once I see results and all is over with I will feel I am glad I did it!

Any pointers of encouragement will help? and if anyone went through this same feelings but ended up no regretting it I would like to know too!

First day after my surgery, had a great experience! Had my appt at 6:30 am which I preferred because of me being nervous and anxious wanting to get it over with! When I got there and was greeted by Mindy my nerves began to fade and the excitement was kicking in. She made me feel at ease with her courtesy and friendliness. Then Mr Schawb the anesthesiologist was just as great asking me how was I was doing and about my family and suddenly Mindy wakes me up and tells me my husband will be here in 15 mins to pick you up. I did not feel groggily, or sick, from the anesthesia,like nothing. Dr Elam came to tell me everything turned out great! I have only took one pain pill since my surgery. I do not feel no pain. And I had not only rhinoplasty but also chin submental Lipo. I could not recommend a better surgeon and his excellent staff (Molly, Lupe, and Mindy) I will go to him again!

Day 4 after surgery. Much better rested,happy that I breath better when I sleep, and to think I had no clue that I had a deviated septum. Thanks to my surgeon that was discovered. Excited about my submental lipo results! Now to just wait for my nose to heal! Feel more confident even though I have not seen the complete results but I know I will be satisfied!
