Life Long Dream Coming True - Salt Lake City, UT

My whole adult life I have been unhappy with my nose. Not a day goes by and I can't help but look in the mirror and wish it were more symmetrical. Three weeks ago I get slammed in the face by the back of my friends head while I was playing in a pool with my daughters and instead of being upset by the break or the pain I started giggling because I knew for a fact something major had happened and that this would be my ticket to a new nose. Sure enough!!! Broken and discovered that my septum is all kinds of JACKED up! I am four days away from my surgery and so nervous and excited. Scared that I won't look like myself. :(
I do know that if I don't take advantage of this opportunity then I will regret it for the rest of my life! I know I am in very good hands with Dr. Swenson and that I need to just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I want this for me. At the same time there is a nudge of guilt for not not loving myself exactly the way God has created me. I am not looking to change my appearance drastically at all. In fact I want my nose but just improved. When it is all said and done and people can walk up to me and not notice anything was done I would be happy.

On a side note that I did not mention.
Cost: The $3300 that I am putting towards the surgery is the cosmetic part that the insurance will not paid for.
The other Septum and Bridge that was broken will all fall under my insurance. WOOT WOOT

I have always been so bugged about the cartilage in the tip of my nose and how off balance the two sides are. As I have aged I feel like I've watched one side become more and more different than the other side as if it is growing on only one side. Dr. S explained that the left side that is higher is where it should be and the right side is drooping and that he will be able to fix that.

Tomorrow is my big day! Scared! :(

Referred by another ENT Doc that I found. He came highly recommended. I loved seeing his before and after pictures and his bedside manor. Darling man!

Please let me know how you're doing these days and an update photo, if you will. I am looking for reviews on Swenson. I'm currently considering Bitner or Mobley.

Whoa, those x-rays are fascinating. Thanks so much for posting! I think it's cool that you're getting this done for yourself. Just a few days away! Make sure you have lots of lip balm and cold drinks on hand! Here's a good list of supplies you'll want before the big day.
