Alright so I'm only 19 but my nose has been torturing me for as long as I can remember
While it's small and proportionate to my face from the front, my side view is less then pleasing a bump throws my whole look off so as soon as I rallied enough money I went to my Surgeon of choice

My surgery is scheduled to be 11/12/2013 which will be next Tuesday

So far I have the before and after stimulation image And I ADORE it
Will Be uploading pictures soon

The staff and The doctor himself are extremely helpful and caring so far my experience is very positive

Stimulation Picture

it's a small bump but it make a huge difference in my profile here's a quick picture

Nerves are kicking in

I've never had any type of surgery and I find myself looking up rhinoplasty reviews for hours reading some that sound more like horror stories and it terrifies me, once you work up the courage to go on with something like this you just want it to work out like you always wanted and the thought that it might go wrong is my worst fear I'm totally freaking out and trying to stay composed at the same time ... I'm scared

Day 1-3

I'm so swollen and bruised ! didn't think I'd get like this but the good thing is that I didn't feel any pain other then a slight headache after the procedure.
Dr.Galitz and his staff are very caring and they put up with all my first time nonsense with patience and understanding.
My rhinoplasty was done under local anesthesia so I was awake but I didn't feel a thing - it was a closed rhino- and took about 45 minutes in all
honestly the worst part is the swelling and the bleeding on the first day
I have a cast on my nose so i don't really know how it looks like but right now I'm just hoping the swelling goes down soon, anyone know on average how long it'll last?

Cast OFF!

it's been a week since the surgery so the cast came off swelling is almost gone! My nose is still quite swollen but I like it so far - I have a brown tape around it... tell me what you guys think I hope it looks great in the end

tape removed

and I'm not happy with my nose... to me i still have a bump.... hopefully is swelling but to me my nose looks huge.... how long does it usually take to get a full the full result I'm feeling totally discouraged

I Hate my nose

I have a bump where I used to never have one? I'm not sure if it's swelling or a callus that won't ever go away and will have to get a revision surgery :/ either way I scheduled an appointed that was supposed to be today and when we got there at the set time they were closed, so not to happy with how the follow up seems to be heading - I just hope that it's swelling even though it sure doesn't feel like it and I will have the nose I was assured numerous times to be having...

year update

My nose is honestly fabulous i love it and it gave me so much more confidence, after the swelling went down everything was perfect (: thank you to dr.galitz and his wonderful team for being so helpful and caring through out the whole process
