For anyone heading into surgery, I highly suggest Dermablend makeup for the week after, it's used to cover bruises and tattoos. It really works well.

Well, I am one month since my surgery. Good news and not so good news.....My bones are straight and healing well, my profile looks great, BUT....my front lower septum shifted to it's original position! So my front view is in fact crooked. In 2 months I go back and have a smaller, shorter procedure done to put the tip back in it's straight spot. Frustrating, but I waited 20 years to do this so a 2 months wait will be worth it to have it done right. Grrrrr

I had my revision yesterday. Was put out as before but much shorter procedure. My septum had shifted over so it was shifted back into place. I haven't needed any pain meds, just stuffy and runny and have some tape on my nose. Supposed to have stitches removed tomorrow.

I'm 5 months septum redo and 8 months original surgery. I still have some tightness/tingling in the tip which can last up to a year so since I had that messed with in January it could be another 6 plus months of that. Otherwise, just some days where there is some swelling on and off on the side of my nose, but it depends on what I eat (salt) or drink (alcohol) or do heavy cardio (spinning or running). I will post some new pictures soon. The more I look at my old nose, the more I can't believe I waited so long to do it!
