Initially I was scheduled for Dec.2012. However I got very nervous when my friend who had her rhinoplasty with him a month prior took over three weeks off and still felt she needed more time. At work I was only given 2 weeks and I didnt feel that was going to be enough for me. So I cancelled before the allowed deadline so I wouldnt pay a penalty.
In June of 2013 I was laid off so I called to schedule my rhinoplasty since now I would have time to heal without worrying about work.
Since Dr. G. s in such high demand the next available date was 9/23/13.
Fast forward today I was a nervous wreck! not only was I tired because I hadnt been able to sleep just worrying about it....what if I ended up worse, what if I didnt like it? What if I miss my old nose that I have disliked for so long? What if there is an earthquake while hes working on me? What if regret it?
I was crying before surgery. When he came in, I again mentioned what I wanted and what I did not want.
I did not want my tip raised, upturned, a thinner or shorter nose or to have that " had work done " look.
I did wasnt a stright bridge, the hump gone. A very subtle result.
When I woke up from surgery I felt obviously groggy, cold, and still nervous. My sister went with me and she said I had NO BRUISING
Since I did not believe her I asked for a mirror and she was right!
I feel great! It is past 9 p.m. and im sitting up writing this review. I took 300mg tylenol, no Vicodine. But I am amazed at how well I feel
Dr. G. did call about 7:30 to check on me and remind me to take my meds. I will update in a few days.
