I am very excited about what my nose will look like after the swelling goes down. Even though the swelling is still visible, I already like it :)
i do not regret my decision what so ever but please make sure that if you decide to go through a rhinoplasty that you are 100% prepared both physically and mentally. Also, make sure you have someone take care of you and have supportive people at your side. I was fortunate to be supported by my family.
The 3rd and 4th day are the most difficult. After the 4th day everything is uphill. Surprisingly the day of surgery and the 2nd day were not bad at all. I stopped taking my hydrocodone after the 4 day.
I know this review was pretty brief...but if you have any questions please ask them and I will gladly answer any of them :)
I wish you all well and hope you have a great recovery.
P.S. The nursing staff at the Texas Institute of Surgery is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! The nurses and the anesthesiologist were all great and had excellent bedside manners. They definitely made my experience a great one! they also helped ease the nerves. (Even thought they couldn't get the IV in- it took them 6 tries)
