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?

Well then, the reduction your surgeon did was very appropriate: he didn't 'deproject' your tip nor scope out your bridge. Anyway, hope you're enjoying the results and thanks for sharing your story! READ COMMENT

Sorry about the cleft chin comment! It seems like you had it before the surgery. READ COMMENT
