I needed a major septorhinoplasy to correct an injury which happened as a result of being kicked in the face, and knocked out by my dying horse last June.
The ER in the town where I live failed to diagnose the extent of my injuries and their ENT also failed to do any studies nor intervention. By the time I got a CT scan it was past the 1 week period to fix my injury, so I had a displaced, deformed nose, with a crushed airway that was 90% obstructed on the left, with bone fragments and 30% obstructed on the right. It had to remain that way for 9 months until my surgeon could do the septorhinoplasty with ear cartilage grafts to rebuild my airway. This was done at the end of March.
The surgeon did an excellent job by repairing all the damage, repositioning my nose and rasping down the fragments and lumps. My breathing immediately improved and my nose is straight again. I also used an aque cool after my procedure for 7 days. There was no bruising and minimal swelling. It helped my healing to have the aque cool unit. Most important my surgeon had amazing precision in his work and left minimal evidence of all he had to do. My breathing is normal again and my face looks great.
