I broke my nose in a snowmobiling accident when I was 8. I have wanted rhinoplasty since I was 10 years old. That's right...almost 17 years. Better late than never! I did a lot of research and after two consultations I decided on Dr. Mobley at the University of Utah. My surgery is scheduled for February 25th. I am very confident in this choice and the result I hope to get. I am a bit nervous about being under general anesthesia. I have a gorgeous two year old daughter and a nervous husband so that makes me a little more scared. I would absolutely hate to jeopardize my health for vanity reasons. My doctor has assured me that I am in food hands, though. He has been practicing over 20 years and he has never even come close to losing someone...so that's reassuring! It will be an endonasal surgery. They are re-breaking the bones, straightening and narrowing the side a bit and taking out the dorsal hump from the accident. My doctor is not really changing the tip. I am posting before and after estimations from his imaging. Again, this is not a promise of results, as you all know. But, it's a pretty good blueprint and I am 100% satisfied with it. They also suggested a chin implant but I decided against it. My chin has never bothered me and sticks out a lot more when I smile. It doesn't bother me, so I am leaving it.
Okay...18 days until the operation. I am getting...

Not sure of aftercare quite yet but this is a fantastic surgeon and a true professional. Found him after research on here and elsewhere.
