Residual Dorsal Hump

First of all, I am sorry that my story cannot be as inspiring as others here on RealSelf. However, I am obligated to be brutally honest with you wanderers of the Internet. I will tell the whole truth, both the good and the extraordinarily bad. (In advance, prepare for a melodramatic... READ MORE

College Student, Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

I love swelling. I love the way it blankets the nose in a sheath of ambiguity. Did I just waste a cool 15k? Will I finally look good enough? The lack of certainty is intriguing, like Schrödinger's cat (or Schrödinger's nose job if you will, the nose is simultaneously f*ck** up and beautiful). ... READ MORE

Questions from ColoradoRanger

Should I Get a Revision Rhinoplasty or Opt for a Non-surgical Method? (photo)

I recently had an open rhinoplasty (about 4 weeks ago) to remove my dorsal hump. However, the surgery has proven so far to be ineffective. Because a great deal of the swelling... READ MORE

I had a rhinoplasty to remove a dorsal hump, do I possibly saddle deformity? (photo)

Hi all! I had a rhinoplasty to remove a dorsal hump a little over a year ago. I am assuming that by now the swelling has gone away. Unfortunately my nose still looks "deformed"... READ MORE

How to approach treating a severe mid-vault collapse?

Hi there! I have been "diagnosed" with a relatively severe mid-vault collapse. The specialists in facial reconstruction I have consulted with have proposed two different... READ MORE

Is this residual swelling or a slight hump? If it's a hump, can a non-surgical approach be used to mitigate it? (Photo)

Hi all! I recently underwent a second rhinoplasty about 3 months ago and as you can see, the improvement is quite dramatic! My only concern is the minor hump that has formed... READ MORE

Poorly defined nose after two surgeries. Is it worth going under again? (photo)

Hi all! I have undergone two rhinoplasties so far (one that over-resected my nose to the point I had an extreme mid-vault collapse and the other to reconstruct it). In your... READ MORE

That's great to hear! You're only 1-month post op, so there is probably quite a bit of swelling in your nose still (especially in the tip!). Give it time, you may like your nose even more in a few months :) READ COMMENT

I totally understand where you're coming from: there's always that fear things can get worse. Definitely discuss your concerns with your surgeon; however, choosing a proven-to-be-skilled surgeon (ask him for photographic evidence of... READ COMMENT

I am sorry you've had to go through all this. Coping with a bad nose job is terribly stressful and on top of that not many people understand the stress. Have you consulted with a revision surgeon recently? That would likely be your best... READ COMMENT

I agree with your surgeon: an upturned nose would not fit your face (it would 'clash' with your strong chin/jaw. See Dianna Agron for instance, her face type would not be harmonized with an upturned nose ). Personally, I would want the... READ COMMENT

It's been about a year and a half since my reconstructive surgery. Nothing about the rest of my face changed; however, rib cartilage was not used (the surgeon used ear cartilage and scalp fascia). You had a different experience? READ COMMENT
