Anyone HATE their Bridge Implant??
- Last updated: 9 months ago
So I had rhinoplasty about two weeks ago. My only concerns were with my bulbous tip and large flare, like most AA. I had a consultation with a doctor that has experience in ethnic rhinoplasty, and the consultation went great. He did some imaging and I was happy with what he showed me and went ahead and scheduled with him. Two weeks later, I'm looking to spend more money to go back to him to have a bridge implant (with graft) removed. The imaging was quite deceptive and did not show any changes to my profile (which I told him I liked a lot...my natural profile). When the cast came off, I was horrified to see my nose raised and practically projecting from my forehead, RIGHT FROM BETWEEN MY EYES. I literally look like gonzo and cannot stand to see myself in the mirror without crying. I went back to see him in a panic to see what could be done, and he insisted that the job was "perfect" and that he had corrected my low starting nose, because aesthetically, it "should" start higher. Mind you, I NEVER told him I wanted to achieve this; and besides, that higher start is what is natural in NON ETHNIC noses. Long story short, I'm having it removed. I absolutely hate how it has made me look. The nose itself looks good (shape and all...even where he refined, and had he only refined the lower half of my nose (the dorsum), I wouldn't even have had a problem (and that's what the imaging actually shows). But he essentially elongated my nose and has it starting so high up that it changes the way that I look and my profile, and is in NO WAY subtle or in preserving of my natural, ethnic features. I am upset that it is costing me so much money in the end, but I cannot wait to have it removed. The work he did on what I was actually asking for (flare and tip), was A+, so it was not a total loss. Anyone else hated their bridge implant and had to have it removed. I was in NO WAY "waiting" to see what it looked like in 6+ months because I know for sure that I did not seek any changes to that area of my nose. I was happy with what it naturally looked like. I'm just upset that I have to be going through this.
