My nose has always bothered me since I can remember - maybe like 10 years old, and now I am 33. I always have had a curve to my nose that I thought looked terrible. But, I liked the way I looked from the front. When I went to a few consults, the docs pointed out that my nose was also crooked to my right side (which I guess I always new, but it never bothereed me that much). I finally decided on a doctor, based some research, the fact that he was a facial plastic surgeon, and a gut feeling.
I had my surgery (rhinoplasty with septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and repair of vestibular stenosis) on June 21st, and my cast came off yesterday (the 28th). It was weird, but my nose is actually straight instead of bumped now, which is really cool and was my main objective. But, my nose is still crooked. I don't feel it is any more crooked than it was per se, but it almost seems more obvious that it is crooked now. I think maybe because the doctor raised the tip of my nose slightly and my nostril are more exposed in view combined with the tip swelling that makes it seem more exaggerated.
I am hoping it is just the tip swelling, and will get less noticable over time. I wasn't looking for perfection, I just am worried it looks more obvious now than it did before and also wondering why the doctor didn't fix it? So, I got the cast off at 10am yesterday and was back in the doctor's office complaining at 3:30pm. He said he thinks it looks better than it did, and seemed to think it isn't anything that would require revisional surgery. He did, however, tape my nose up again (I'm guess just to quiet me up?)
I will try to post pics when I get a minute, but I am one of those folks that take a lot of pics and it takes me forever to upload them to my computer.
Has anyone else had a similar issue?
