I'm in my mid'30's and decided to meet with Dr. Sadati for a Deviated Septum/rhinoplasty. I've previously had a septoplasty with another surgeon to help me with my breathing but the results were not what I expected. So I met with Dr. Sadati to discuss my options. Aside from helping my with breathing better, I wanted to correct my deviated septum I got after a childhood injury. Those were my main concerns and I did not want to change what I looked like or to change the shape of my nose dramatically either.
I went ahead with the surgery.
The recovery was OK. I had some minor bruising on my uppers eyelids but they disappeared after a few days. The splint was removed after a week. I was not sure what I was going to see after the splint was removed. I am relatively pleased with the results. I can definitely breath much better - major plus. The side profile, although not my biggest issue initially, looks nice. I do still have some numbness at the tip of my nose and my nose is not entirely straight (still slightly hooks to the right). I understand the nose is not fully healed (surgery done end of November). I do hope that will not be an issue as my nose fully heals.
