So im having rhinoplasty today. I am so nervous...

So im having rhinoplasty today. I am so nervous and scared, I don't know what to do with myself.

I found realself when I was interested in getting a bbl. I am still considering a bbl but im not ready to commit to having it done just yet.

I have hated my nose for as long as I can remember. Thanks to constant teasing as a kid it is a big insecurity for me. I have always been afraid of rhinoplasty because there are so many horror stories out there about it. I am hoping my new nose isn't one of them!

My nose is to big for my face. I have some functional issues as well; a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates. I don't remember what it feels like to breath freely through my nose. Hopefully I will be breathing well after this.

My surgery is later this morning and my stomach is full of butterflies! I'm praying I make it through and come out with something I love.


Going through a range of emotions right now! Mostly negative. I don't think I like it. Omg....

all taped up




I'm 3 days post OP. I feel like it looks very unnatural. I have read some reviews with people complaining about looking piggish. I don't think I have that issue. I think mine is just very unnatural and over done. Advice please!

liking my new nose

So far I like my nose. I still have swelling that fluctuates daily. Some days my nose is very uncomfortable; stuffy,dry,congested. I have no pain, just these discomforts. I can smile regularly now. Some people have said I look different, like I lost weight or something. In the initial days it was very hard to look at because it was very noticably crooked. That issue has resolved itself. I aldo had an issue with the shape of my nostrils, they looked unnatural to me. But they have a much better shape now.

Overall, I am happy with my nose. If I could do it again I would NOT! Although I am happy with my results I think I should have just made peace with my old nose. I had negative feelings about my looks for a long time and that's why I had the surgery. At this point I dont care what anyone says about my looks. My old nose didn't stop me from doing things, my new nose won't change anything for me either.

It's been over 2 years!

Over all I am still happy with my nose. It has settled right into my face. It looks very natural. People who I haven't seen in along time rant and rave about how good I look and how much weight I must have lost. Strangers seem to be nicer, especially men. This does make me a little sad because it just reminds me of how superficial people are.

As far as healing, I can breath. My big old nose was useless! I do have really bad nasal allergies and I am constantly blowing my nose. I get nose bleeds if the air is too dry so I use saline nose spray almost daily. It's not cute having nose bleeds in public. Other than that things are great.

I never followed up with Dr Basner, but I feel he did a good job. My nose doesn't look fake or overdone.
