I did take all the precautions possible, from arnica to changing my diet, I took time off to heal, I followed the doctor's instructions, and my healing process was surprisingly fast. Once the cast was off, it was almost impossible to say I had had an operation 7 days before. I had one of my best friends come visit me from overseas, she arrived about 10 days after the procedure and she was amazed at the results. She said she was fully prepared to see me all bruised and swollen but instead, I looked completely normal, just with a beautifully improved profile.
I'm very pleased with my new nose, It looks and feels more natural everyday. And I love the fact that it didn't change much, which is exactly what I wanted.
