My Journey - Belgium

Hey everyone well Iv finally booked my rhinoplasty...

Hey everyone well Iv finally booked my rhinoplasty but still feeling unsure. . Iv always hated my nose since I can rember and I have always said id get it done now that iv the money im feeling scared but excited and anxious. But I know if if don't go ahead with it if to regret it. 2yrs of age and iv a young daughter I no its probly selfish of me but it's just something I need to do!

not sure

not sure what to do so confused and worried about picking the right surgeon i dont know whether to find another clinic closer to home or what to do ,,but its just so pricey in ireland !!!!! help people:)!!!!!

change of plan nose booked for feb 5th

Just booked my flights to belguim to finally get my nose done. im so exciteddddd! Eeeeek cant wait iv wanted this for so long. All my family and friends are happy for me except for my boyfriend he is not happy but im hopping he will get over it i know hes probly just worried about me so hopefully when its done wel be both happy with the results! Im super excited anyway bye bye witch no nose!

2wks

Eeeeeeeeeeksssssss two wks and il be getting my new nose feeling a mix of emotions from nervous to excited feel bit sick.. il be put to sleep so thats what is freaking me out the thoughts of it cant wait til its just done n dusted ..... excited woooooo

1wk to go!!!!

The final count down is on and all i can think of is being put to sleep im terrified really putting me off !! Iv a young daughter so id never forgive mysrlf if she was left motherless because of me and my obsession with my nose !!!lol i know its extreme but its all i can think of! Other then that though im excited! Cant wait for it.

4 Days to Op

And iv woke up with a sore throat n ear ??? I read somewhere in the emails from my surgeon that if youv any ear infections or any infections u have to post pon your op ??i really hope not :( has this happened anyone else .. just my luck .

I also see a minor bump on my nose. I'm at 2 months post right now. I'm kind of ok with it now because I am still happy about the other improvements. The small bump you have is not noticeable! I bet no one will see it but you, I would give it time
