So I've been wanting to do this forever and I recently decided enough was enough and I was going to do it. My whole life my friends and family would say you don't need it, you're beautiful. I don't think I per say need it but I really want it and I think it'll really improve the quality of my life. So I'm taking the plunge.
He's doing Sedation for the procedure, so I'll be breathing on my own. Anyone have any words or advice or anything comforting to say about not being conscious, would be r ally helpful for me
Love everything else about my face and body, my nose really bothers me though
I just always feel like my nose has been too big for my face, I just really want a more narrow bride, and more definition
So appreciative of Real Self
Watching other people's transitions And reading other people's stories really helped me in finally making this happen. I'm so grateful for the people who share their experience, it's really comforting. So I feel indebted and honored to share my experience too !!
I've been really anxious, I'm still excited though but anxiety is terrible. I've decided to get a silicone implant, i love how the doctor customizes them and they look great. Freaked out by how sometimes they can get infected but I'm going to ask more questions about it. Would love some feedback from you guys
Having really bad anxiety about the surgery . I've been super miserable.
Thinking about rescheduling my surgery for December. I definitely want to have more consultations and ask more questions with my options. But I love the doctors work so I still want to go with him.
So I rescheduled for December
I feel a lot better rescheduling
Kind of want to reschedule the surgery for
Sooner, want to really enjoy my results I'm pretty excited
Anyone else on here have sleep apnea ? If so how did it impact our surgery/recovery ?
Exactly a month until surgery, how did some of u guys shake off the nerves ? I'm not worried about the results just the surgery itself
3 more weeks, more before pics, how dealing with anxiety
Excited but very very anxious, the whole concept of risk of surgery is frightening to me. I've had a blood test done, a sleep study, and I even went to see a cardiologist just to give myself peace of mind but there's still no guarantee that complications wont occur and that's the scary part. How did you guys deal with anxiety before surgery ?
Exactly 14 days away
I'm pretty anxious, I just want to breathe better and have my dream nose. I keep googling stuff that aren't helping my nerves.
This is my nose with a snapchat filter
Just so you guys get an idea of what my face looks like.
With the snapchat filter
The surgery is fast approaching just want you guys to see my face more
Paid in full today
Paid the rest of the balance for my surgery and it is a week from today, got some stuff what else do I need ?
Feeling under the weather
Feeling a bit sick, I have a cough and body aches, hope I get better by Thursday for my surgery. Still pretty nervous hope I can shake these nerves
Might have to reschedule my surgery
So I've been sick all weekend, I've barely left my house since Saturday. Phlegm, fever, headaches, body aches, nauseous, can't eat. So I went to the doctor today to get tested for the flu and I don't have that. I just have a virus but I don't not think I'll be 100 by Thursday and I don't want to have additional risks. I'm really bummed hopefully I can do it next week
Had my surgery this morning
It wasn't bad at all, I got a bit anxious with the needle and freaked out but it didn't hurt and once the iv kicked in I totally knocked out and woke up and it was over, I'm swollen and super drowsy and the nose is bleeding but the surgery wasn't as bad or scary as I thought it would be
My mouth is so dry, what can I use to help out ?
Before vs right after surgery
Hope it gets smaller over time but really want to see it with the cast off. Glad it isn't so wide anymore
7 days post op
Got my cast off today, I like what I see so far, hope it gets smaller with time. This is with the Snapchat filter. I'll upload more pics this week
What are some tips that help with getting rid of swelling ? Ice? Arnica tablets? Or the gel? Or both ?
2 weeks post up update
There's good days and bad days, can't wait for the swelling to go down. I'm getting used to the new nostril and lol but still like it over all
So today is 6 months since my procedure, best decision I've ever made in my life. I have so much more confidence and this has been a domino effect on every other aspect of my life. So glad I did this. Will upload photos tommorow
