4 Days Post-Op

My cast was taken off today and I am already starting to love the results, even with the swelling. I think Dr. Nguyen gave me a handsome nose, I am very optimistic for the next few months.

Thank you very much, the whole experience from start to finish, including the time I spent in the surgical center before and after the surgery exceeded my expectation.I waited in the lobby for 10 minutes or so before they called me into the suite where I changed into the operating room garments and waited for about an hour before getting wheeled off into the O.R. The surgeon met up with me one last time to go over the procedure and patted me on the leg before leaving to get prepared for the surgery. They hooked me up to an IV prior to the surgery that administered some type of medication that sedated me. I was out like a light once they put the mask over me and then almost instantaneously it was over and I awoke to the voice of the surgeon and his assistants talking. Overall, the experience was great and I will have nothing but fond memories from this procedure...and Dr Nguyen and his body. :)

I can definatley see a difference! It looks good. Don't let other peoples opinions affect you. I think your face looks proportional. You shouldn't do anything to extreme. Have you only had the nose job?

No, but since then I have had two other surgeries- Chin Implant and fat injections to cheeks. Im still somewhat, but no completely, unsatisfied with the results. I just cant help feeling like my nose could look a little better, my chin could be stronger, and my cheeks could be fuller and more contoured. *sighs*. I think im going to lay off the surgery for a while...it always leaves you feeling empty at times, especially the days and weeks after the procedure. I wonder if other people feel the same? I feel like im in this alone...nobody really supports my decisions to have surgery, nobody understands, i always get awkward looks and raised eyebrows from co-workers and family. im just glad i can come on here. Yall understand and are supportive.
Yeah I know people have to many negative opinions about plastic surgery. I think whatever makes a person more happy they should do it. The people I told said I didn't need it (of course they would say that). I would never let other people persuade me to change my mind. I wanted a chin implant for over 5 years and I was set to finally have it done. Can you upload an updated pic? Thanks! I love this blog too. I hope my story helps people make their decisions.

Im basically satisfied with my experience with this doctor and his office, but I have to admit, his office is really glitzy, i tend to prefer a more clinic-style setting. His staff was decent but some of them were hard to communicate with, or seemed disinterested, im not going to put a name on here but there was one girl that I had to deal with that was pretty rude and snobby, the office manager was really nice (I think her name was lea) and was willing to accommodate me during the process. Dr Nguyen was nice and had good bedside manner.
