I am scheduled to have an open rhinoplasty done seventeen days from now during my high-school spring intersession. I have never been teased or bullied but instead have decided to have the procedure done since I am self-conscious and feel it isn't proportional to my facial features. I have read a number of blogs and watched several YouTube videos on experiences which have helped me gain an overall idea of what I should expect and how to prep. Although this will be my first time under anesthesia, which is worrying to some, (especially my mother) I am confident the operation will go well since I am comfortable with my surgeon and the communication over my expectations. I have considered this practice since a very young age but never mentioned it to a family member / friend until 04/2012 then eventually my mother scheduled a consultation Jan/2013 where a date was set. I purchased items I found necessary for the "after," including:
CLOTH TAPE, LITER WATER BOTTLE, STRAWS, SALINE SPRAY, VASELINE, CLEANSING WIPES, GAUZE PADS, STOOL SOFTENER, CUTIPS, SLIPPERS, EAR PLUGS, TYLENOL, HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, SUNBLOCK.
