Looking Forward to Rhinoplasty in April - Lone Tree, CO

I couldn't find anywhere to post this and it's not...

I couldn't find anywhere to post this and it's not my review yet. So far Ive been to 5 different consultations and I've picked my Dr. He was very personable, had all the accredations I was looking for and really seemed like he understands my goals of a natural subtle looking rhinoplasty. The date is set for the end of April.

5 weeks post op

I'm just giving my update so far...the surgery felt like it went so quick, I had some pain in my collumella when I woke up and they have me a painkiller for the drive home but that was the only pain medicine I had for the entire recovery. It was so weird to not have any pain when I knew my bones had been broken. I just had pressure like a sinus infection. When I got home, myDr. Had sent flowers to my house and called to check up later that evening. My nose would bleed a tiny bit the first couple days then just completely stopped. Ihad my cast off after 5 days. It has Definately been an emotional experience. I still don't feel like I recognize myself in the mirror and that's been tough. I went back to work after 2 1/2 weeks and everyone kept asking me if I had a nose job! My tip was droopy and it was lifted during surgery so that's what gave it away I think. I have to go back in to have a procedure to lift my nostrils as I have hanging nostrils and it's really throwing off the collumella/ nostril relationship. I'm hoping the tip will drop more and the uneven swelling goes away soon. It's really bugging me that everyone keeps asking me if I had my nose done, I really thought people wouldn't even notice

4 months post op...

So I'm 4 months post op and getting a bit discouraged. I've been trying to be patient but the issues I have seem to be getting worse as swelling goes down. One side of my nose seems to be sinking in and nose tip is pulling to the right a bit. Every time I look in the mirror I see the sunken in area and it really sucks :/ if anyone has had this happen or knows what might be happening I would really appreciate any comments or info
