It Is Never Too Late to Rhino! - Vancouver, BC

I met with 2 Dr.s. Dr Portuese in Seattle and Dr....

I met with 2 Dr.s. Dr Portuese in Seattle and Dr. Bounassisi in Vancouver I really liked both and they both agreed on the revisions that I was looking to have done. I made my decision based on location, Seattle was just too difficult to navigate. I am 5 days post op and I am experiencing all the same post op symptoms everyone has. Swollen eyes, bruising, chipmunk cheeks, nasal drip,etc.

Cast Removal Day

So excited. Cast is off. Thank goodness because it is day 9 and getting very irritating. I know it serves a purpose but really goes with no outfits lol! Was the cast was off and I saw my new (still swollen nose) i was in love. Like I had just had another baby!! I know it still needs to heal and will change everyday but I think if it looks great today swollen it can only get better. I celebrated with a trip to the Salon for a new and improved hairdo. Cant wait to show off my new nose.
Vancouver Facial Plastic Surgeon

I have had a great experience with Dr Buonassisi and his team for my Rhino/septoplasty. The surgery took place on June 25 at Delbrook Surgery Clinic and I cant say enough about the support staff there.. I am excited to see the results and know the rest of the journey is in good hands with Dr Buonassisi and his team.

So glad you posted those pics! I was beginning to think I was the only one that got the bruised eyes all the way around the eye! I am soooo swollen and bruised. It's good to see that it healed pretty quickly for you. I'm on day three post op. I can't wait for my swelling to go down!

I took arnica montana pellets which is a homeopathic remedy for bruising. I also used frozen peas on my eyes and drank lots of water. Also there is an enzyme in pineapple that can help with swelling. I drank pineapple juice but eating fresh pineapple is better as it contains more of the enzyme. The cheek swelling was the most surprising and disturbing to me, I looked like a chipmunk. I had no idea that the swelling would move down my face like that. Good luck and at day 9 I still have swelling but no where as bad. Get lots of rest and drink lots water. Soon you will forget everything but your new awesome nose!!
