I have always been extremely unhappy with my nose and have always felt it is too large and not feminine enough for my face.
I have finally booked my surgery and am extremely excited. My surgeon says he is going to fix my dropping tip to make my nose perkier, remove the hump, make my nose slightly shorter and bring it closer to my face!
It will be a closed rhinoplasty. I am extremely excited, and would love to see some examples of woman who had a similar nose and their results!
It is the second day since my combined...

When I woke up there was absolutely no pain in my nose, and because there was also no packing I was able to breath just fine. However within about half an hour my nose had become to swollen to breath out of. It was slightly uncomfortable but not at all painful or as bad as I thought it would be.
Also, because there was no packing blood would drip down my nose so my doctor gave me some gauze to continue replacing undernath my nose. The bleeding was moderate at first but has now completely stopped.
I would say the most uncomfortable aspect is that I have a very sore throat from the tube that was used during the anesthesia. My throat is still very swollen making all the phlem that comes down from my nose hard to spit up and very unpleasant.
Also on the first day it was hard to eat some foods so I stuck to soup and moist crackers. I attempted to eat some pistachio's today but have decided it is not the best idea.
I do have some darkness under my eyes, but it is not half as bad as I had expected. My entire face as well as lips are swollen but that does not bother me as I am taking it easy at home.
Within the past few hours my nose has just started clearing up a little and I am now able to breath through it a little more :].
I can already notice even with the cast that my nose is looking a whole lot narrower and cannot wait to take it off!
So far this process has been a lot easier than I had imagined and I still cannot believe it has not been painful.
Will keep you all posted!

So today was day seven, which meant it was time to take off the cast!
Let me tell you, I have never felt a more releaving feeling than when the doctor's assistant clean out my nose! I could finally breath again! And actually, it feels like I can breath even better than I did before (becaue the nostrils are tipped up and not sagging down)
Once the cast came off I was so ecstatic! I still have two black eyes, and a considerable amount of swelling on my face, between my new eyebrows as well as on my nose itself, but I can already tell I love it!
I just cannot wait for it to start looking narrower and more refined.
Will keep you all posted!
