6 months Since Ive had my surgery

I'm going to keep this nice and short and post before and after pictures each week so you can see the progress. I'm a male and it was always hard for me to find blogs regarding male rhinoplasty so I thought Id make one following my journey.


I am scheduled for surgery January 7th, 2013. I've always disliked my nose. The sides are slightly deviated the tip is much too round and overall it's very wide. Dr. Portuese suggested that we thin the tip add a little to the lower bridge (where its thin) and shave down the sides that are deviated. I feel very comfortable in his hands and will let you all know how things turn out :)

So its been a month since my surgery and I'm very...

So its been a month since my surgery and I'm very happy with the results. Its so much more balanced to my features and doesn't look out of place. Its perfect for me. I no longer look at my nose and wish it was different. It's only been one month and still feels very swollen so I imagine it will only get better which is hard for me to believe!

It's been 1 month and 1 week and swelling is still going down. Picture update! :)

6 months Post up picture update

I love the results, its only gotten better! I have some VERY honest friends that told me my nose was pretty large before and the only thing that took away from my features and now they say its on the SMALLER side !! It's such a compliment because I hated that big wide broken looking nose.

(pictures coming soon)

Here are some 6 months post op pics

sorry about the quality of the pics...
its from my webcam
All I can say is Im absolutely in love with it, I no longer obsess over my nose or even think about it unless a friend mentions how cute it is... it looks like a normal nose now I have no idea how he did it with that huge unshapened thing I had before *shiver*

THANK YOU DR PORTUESE LOL
