So it's the day after my surgery and so far I don't feel TOO bad. Last night was rough because I'm not use to sleeping so straight up. Also, during the day I had some problems with swallowing because of the blood accumulating in my nose (my surgeon didn't use packing in my nose because he said that there wasn't a lot of bleeding). I'm going in for a check up tomorrow and hopefully will get most of the dried blood out of my nostrils (how uncomfortable!) It's hard to see how my nose will look because of the splint, but I'm excited to see how it will turn out!

Will update more with pictures and stories throughout recovery!

So it's 5 days post-op and I got my cast off today, the hump that I use to have on my nose is completely gone and I LOVE my profile view. There's still quite a bit of swelling but I never had any bruising, which is good. I'm kinda worried about the tip of my nose because I feel like my nostrils seem to be flaring a little too much, but I'm hoping this will go away when the swelling in the tip goes away!

It's been over 6 weeks since my surgery, and I'm very happy with the results. It was exactly what I wanted. I didn't want a drastic change where people KNEW I had my nose done, but I wanted the things that bothered me fixed! :)
The tip is still getting smaller as the swelling continues to go down. I developed a little scar tissue in my right nostril, but that's going down slowly as well.

very happy :)

He was very nice and made sure I had realistic expectations. My only dissatisfaction was that I didn't feel there was a lot of patient-doctor interaction before surgery...
