Getting my Rhinoplasty This Summer! - Norway, NO

I am a 18 year old girl who is not happy with the way my nose looks. People have always commented on my nose, and that's maybe because I've always joked along about it. But they don't know that their comments acctually hurt me. Anyways, I've thought about getting a nose job for many years, and I'm so ready to finally get it! I've told my closest friends, and they are all very supporting, and telling me that I don't need to get a nose job.

One of my friends got a nose job in January, so she understands me the most. She tells me that I should do it, because I will feel so much better afterwards. My parents also support me, especcially my mom. So it's good to know that the people closest to me supports me that much.
My only problem is that I am scared of the surgery, I've never dealt good with pain. I faint when I take a blood test, and I even fainted when I got my ears pierced last year (four holes at the same time, though..).

So I would love it if someone could tell me about their experiences, and encourage me to go through with the surgery that I want so badly!

Hi, I´m also from Norway:) I have my rhinoplasty booked in LA this September. How are you doing? Have you had your surgery yet?

Hey! Kan vel svare på norsk :) Jeg hadde operasjonen 25. juli, og nå, to måneder senere er jeg tilbake til det normale livet mitt igjen. Jeg må si at det er veldig problematisk å puste med nesen fortsatt, men jeg hadde rhinoseptoplasty, altså jeg var tett i nesen fra før av og opererte dette også, og derfor har jeg fått beskjed om at på grunn av hevelse innvendig tar det lengre tid for meg. Har du hatt opersjonen ennå? Det er hvertfall kun den første uka du kommer til å merke ubehag. Det gjør ikke vondt, men er veldig veldig ubehagelig! Det værste for meg var å ta ut det jeg hadde inni nesa, og når legen skulle massere nesa etter at alt av plaster var tatt av. Alt i alt er jeg veldig fornøyd, men selvfølgelig blir man ekstra nøye etter operasjonen, og man legger merke til ting man ikke gjorde før. Jeg irriterer meg veldig over at det ene neseboret er større enn det andre, selvom det bare er jeg som kan se det. Håper det går bra med deg!

Thanks for starting your story! I'm glad you have a good support system around you.

Everyone heals differently, but I didn't experience much pain with my rhinoplasty or revision. The most unpleasant part for me was severe congestion when you can't breathe out of your nose after surgery. But it passes.

If you do go through with this, make sure to choose your surgeon carefully. Here's what some doctors say about choosing the right surgeon for your rhinoplasty.

Good luck and please keep us posted!
