When I was 18 I hated the bump on my nose and I had it removed. I was thrilled with the results but in my 30's the tip of my nose began to "fall" making it very noticeable when I smiled. Also I began to notice my nostrils were no longer symmetrical. It bothered me increasingly with every photo taken of me so I finally decided since I had a deviated septum anyway I might as well try this one more time.
I am 4 days post op and now that I have removed the drip pad I can tell I am going to love the new tip. I have stitches which feel like they will pop when I yawn but other than a little swelling and some annoyance at breathing through my mouth, it's been a good experience as was my last one.
If you really hate your nose and find a good doctor it is totally worth it if it helps your self esteem. I hardly have any pain and I am just waiting for my splint to come off and the stitches and packing to dissolve. Good luck to you all who decide to take this journey! I hope your experience is as good as mine has been thus far!
