There are many things i could say about the whole process from beginning to end (so far), but i feel like the gist of my points have been made. I am now at exactly 1 week after my procedure and am feeling as the above title description. (Scared, nervous, anxious, etc.)
My immediate results were obvious in what was fixed and he did an amazing job, it's the swelling though... just remember... IT'S THE SWELLING.
My problem was that i really made the splint removal day a huge moment in my mind when in reality i should have remembered FULL EXPECTED RESULTS TAKE TIME. Again, the work on bridge/tip fixing was fantastic and apparent, but the overall "new version of you" cannot be seen nor should be looked at as so ON that day. I did that and scared myself a bit. It's overwhelming. It's a lot of differences to take all on at once, however the actual results are amazing and he said every 4 weeks swelling goes down another 10%. So, for right now it's about remaining patient & positive. I am finally at peace with these facts, but am giving warning to anyone reading this who has this procedure done with any doctor.... DO NOT build up that splint removal day in your head as a 'close to final' outcome of your results. It's completely unfair & will overwhelm you the way it did me. I am reassured now that everything just takes time & was a fool for thinking otherwise in a moment of weakness.
Overall: I am so happy and so confident in Dr. Sadati. He is a true specialist and amazing doctor with all he does. You will fall in love with his entire staff as well. They're by far the best experience I've ever had with anything medical related in my entire life time. And for something as big of a deal as Rhinoplasty or Septoplasty... it's absolutely necessary to feel that extra comfort.
looking forward to updating.
thank you & i hope this helps everyone/anyone reading.
