Love my new nose!!!

I wanted to get Rhinoplasty since i was 14 years old. I always hated the front view of my nose, and never like to take pictures. My tip is bulbous and nostrils are too wide, I also have small bump on my nose and slight drooping of my tip. When i was little my dog jumped and hit me in nose, which made one side of my nose more indented. It seems that cartilage on one side slightly collapsed. Overall, i find that my nose does not suit my face! I have had consultations with 3 different PS. First i found that was too pushy with procedures and felt that with him i will not get natural looking results. My second PS had lots of bad reviews. The consultation went well, but i still did not feel comfortable going with PS who had that many bad reviews. My third PS i felt very comfortable with right away. He even told me that i maybe should re-consider getting Rhinoplasty, because in his opinion my case was not that bad (LOL well i think i do need it). Then he went over what could be done and noted that it would be very saddle changes, because that is what i need to achieve natural results. I felt that he was very honest and did not try to push procedures on me. I actually found very laid back, honest and someone who really wants to achieve natural looking results!

They changed my time like two times and the final time is 1400 and I got to be there at 1300. I just ate my " last supper" lol sushi, so no more food :( that kinda sucks cause I absolutely love breakfast and always so hungry in the morning. I am staying over my bf house, because he is kind of closer to location of my surgery.

Hey!!! So yesterday I had my surgery. It was ok, I actually can remember how my ps was asking for scalpel or other instruments, which was kind of freaky! I have quite a good recollection of the almost entire procedure. I talked to my PS today and he said that it happens sometimes to people.
When I got home I was feeling tired, disoriented and started to experience pain. Now when I compare today and my post op day I can honestly say that yesterday was kinda awful! I had pain, I had some bleeding and just felt biggest regret going for surgery. Today my day 2,I feel a lot better. However, when I change my "mustache" I see that my nose looks quite piggy!!! The tip appears to upturned and quite swollen. I do hope it will drop otherwise that would totally suck to be stuck with nose like that. Otherwise, I had been sleeping on and off in sitting position surrounded by lots pillows (haha I feel like some Middle Easter king) and my family is being sooo supportive and brining me anything I need!!! I do feel wide range of emotions starting from excitement all the way why did I do this. However, I understand that it must be common to feel like that after big surgeries. So I am just trying to stay tough and not make any definite conclusions about the outcome of surgery yet!

Hey it is ok. Last night I got runny nose pretty bad and I thought it is weird cause I feel completely plugged up, can't breath at all so when I looked closer aparently dr put packing in my nose. Did he put packing in yours too? Btw you look absolutely beautiful, I showed it to my sister too she said you look gorgeous and yes your nose looks like it dropped a little

So my cast comes of today. I am scared and excited at the same time. My family is being so supportive saying that my nose would probably be quite swolen and that I need to be patient and not to draw conclusions right away weather I like it or not. Well I guess I will take their advice, and wait untill swelling subsides, however I still will post pictures.

Today is my big day, my cast had been removed and voila my small cute nose!!! Overall I am happy with results except I find my tip too upturned. However, I read that it is due to swelling and eventually the tip should drop. So fingers crossed!!! I will post pictures tomorrow.

Today is 4 th day since my cast removal. My bf and mom said that they noticed how the tip of my nose slightly dropped, yay!! However, my tip and bridge is still painful to touch. I had seen few of my friends and no one noticed anything different, no one asked anything at all. My other friends that know about my procedure said that I look better but if I never told them about rhinoplasty they would have never guessed it lol. I came to conclusion that most of the people don't care about noses or pay attention to other ppl noses!!!
