Im Sadie, im 16 years old. ive hate my nose since i was 12 years old. since i was younger i would always get made fun of becuz of it. now im going to be a junior, & my parents are totally fine with me getting it done. my surgery is scheduled for july 26th! so on a tuesday.(tho we r trying to get it for earlier). i am so excited for it, but also VERY nervoous. my dr told me tht i might have to get my nose packed. that makes me terrified!! thinking tht i cant breathe out of my nose scares me a lot!!!.

can someone explain wht their packing was like? please... :)


 

Good luck and I hope all goes well!

Good for you for getting it done now! I wish I had.

I had my nose packed and it's like extreme congestion. Not comfortable, but you adjust. And usually it's only in for a few days.

2 more days to go! Please come back and let us know how it goes.

You should ask your surgeon if you can clean the dried bits out of your nostrils with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. I can't remember when I started that, but it helped immensely!

just got the splint off, im really happy with my nose! i love it.
he did an amazing job,,

Cool running into you here Sadie, fellow redwood city ex woodsider. You looked great regardless, but I'm glad your surgery went well, and it looks great! Seeing youre alive and well makes this surgery seem much less scary. Rock the new nose!
