I had been to many surgeons in the UK (my home country) and in Dubai (where I currently live). As I have an underlying health problem (hyperthyroidism) all of the Dr's that I met with refused to operate on me until my Thyroid levels were stable. My thyroid has been a problem for the past 10yrs so I knew that it was unlikely it would improve enough to undergo the op. My wedding is coming up in 3 months and I was very worried that I was running out of time to have the surgery before the big day. When I contacted Dr. Antione, he advised that he could carry out the surgery without any risks to my health under local anesthesia (assisted) in Beirut, Lebanon.
To begin with I was quite worried about the idea of undergoing rhinoplasty under local anesthesia but I did my research and decided that this was the best option for me.
I traveled to lebanon, met with the Dr. And the surgery took place the following day. After meeting with Dr. Antione, I immediately felt at ease and knew I was in safe hands.
During the surgery, I was pretty much asleep throughout the entire procedure thanks to the sedation through an iv. And before I knew it I was being told to look at the bone/cartilage that the dr. had removed from my nose. I was then asked to move from the operating table onto the bed which I did without any problem.
It has now been one week since my surgery. I actually can't believe that I had NO BRUISING at all afterwards. I actually don't know how that's even possible to have my nose broken without any bruising. I literally only had a little swelling in my eyelids and a little touch of a dark circle on my undereye. I don't know if this is because my Dr. is a miracle worker or if it was due to taking arnica pre and post op.
I had my cast removed today... things are still very swollen but already I know it's a big improvement from my original nose. The hump is gone and it doesn't look as angular.
I'm told that it could be a month until I can see how it will look.... right now I'm hoping that the end result is much smaller with a slight curve in the profile and a little definition in the tip.
I'm hoping that I can get some honest feedback on here of how it looks.
