I have wanted a rhinoplasty since I was a teenager, and I have been reading reviews on realself for at least the past 5 years. I am 23 now and finally went through with the surgery on 09/05/14. My nose and eyes are still very swollen but I think I love the results so far. Will post before and afters
4 days post op
I am 4 days post op today. He took off the cast yesterday, but now it is still taped. The actual surgery was a breeze. Before the surgery, I remember being mostly afraid on the anaesthesia. To my surprise, it was so easy. I just started feeling drowsy and the next thing I knew I was asleep. I woke up in no pain and with no nausea or vomiting like some people experience. Since the surgery I have experienced very little pain. It's more of a sinus headache feeling, so discomfort not actual pain. The only pain I felt was last night around 10pm my boyfriend and I were lying in bed looking at his phone and he dropped his phone on my nose! I couldn't believe the odds that it would fall on my nose. It hurt for about 20 seconds but then started to bleed some. I called Dr. Wolf and he immediately answered his phone and guided me to stop the bleeding. He told me he though I would be fine but if I wanted to come in the next morning(today) he had no problem seeing me. My one week post op appointment is on Friday so I just told him I will wait. It hurt at the time, but I don't think it will effect the final result. Hopefully not! I will post pictures of me after. And, I will continue to post my results. I am still very swollen and bruised, and I can't wait to see the results when a majority of the swelling goes down!
5 days post op
Today was my first day of actually putting on makeup and having my hair down since the surgery. I went out to dinner tonight with some minor bruises still and the tape on my nose. I don't know how some people stay isolated for a whole week or two after surgery. Then again, I also went out at 3 days post op with my cast still on to watch Sunday night football at a place I regularly go to below my apartment. I just put a bit of makeup on and a baseball cap. I felt cooped up after only two days of staying inside. I felt like I needed to get out and socialize, so I did! Anyway, I took a couple of pictures before I went to dinner.

Oops I forgot to post this picture of my profile with my last 5 day post op submission.
Over a year and half now...
Way overdue post, but I was on Realself looking at something, so I thought I would update anyone who is interested on my rhinoplasty. It's been over a year and a half since my procedure, and I am still so extremely happy with my results! Here are a few updated pictures. I no longer am self-conscious or worried about what I may look like in a picture. It is actually strange looking back at pictures to me pre-rhinoplasty. I would highly recommend rhinoplasty to anyone who is debating on getting this procedure. It is a hard decision to make, but I am so extremely happy I finally did it. Lastly, I would especially recommend Dr. Wolf to anyone!! He is seriously an amazing doctor who loves his work and all around awesome person! I love how my nose looks so natural, like I was born with it. One major thing I worried about when choosing my doctor was if I would come out with a cookie cutter nose that everyone could tell I had a rhinoplasty. Well, this definitely isn't the case as no one has ever asked if I have had a nose job and not even some of my close friend realized I had the surgery until I told them.
