So for years I did my research, went on consults and found Dr. Grigoryants. When I came into his office we discussed my aesthetic preferences and he told me what was possible. He took a couple of photos of me and illustrated in Photoshop what he would do (my nose looks better than the 'shopped image btw). He did a lot of grafting on the tip of my nose, added cartilage to the top part of my bridge and shaved down my bump.
After the surgery I threw up blood (because I had a bad reaction to the anesthesia) or perhaps I had swallowed blood during the surgery but other than that had no other adverse reactions. I looked horrible for the first two weeks because of the swelling (Miss Piggy) . But slowly the swelling went down (noses take a long time to heal and they heal in stages- about a year to see 100%).
I do not regret getting a nose job in the slightest. It is cute, natural looking and exactly what I wanted. When I first started dating my boyfriend I confided in him that I had work done- he didn't believe me at first. That's the sign of good work. Do your research and know what you want during your consultation! I had 5 consultations with other well- known surgeons before I chose the one I wanted. I see so many people get conned into going with a surgeon who is charming but less skilled.
