I went to a total of 3 consultations before I chose a doctor. It's such an intimate procedure, you're trusting someone to surgically make changes to your face, I wanted to be 100% confident in my surgeon and also his office staff before I decided.
Recovery itself was not as bad as I thought, I wasn't in pain at all except about 20 min after waking up from surgery. With that said, I was offered pain medicine and declined because I wanted to be able to go home so obviously it was not excruciating pain. The worst part was having cotton stuffed inside your nose so for the first 5 days you can only breathe through your mouth. The best word is uncomfortable, but never was I in pain. Swelling was worse than I thought, but it did dissipate faster than expected so I can't complain.
Overall I am so pleased and happy I went through with the procedure.
