Hey, I live in Nyc and also lived the last 35 yrs with a "BigNose" ..so an opportunity came up to have a Rhinoplasty procedure and i decided to go with it..I was tired of always trying to look totally straight in pictures cuz i was embarrased by my profile..I had a large hump/beak nose and a very bad deviated septum as well. After a few consultations and some research, i chose a PS..
I had my procedure about 15 days ago...and im happy with the results but have a few questions about what i hope is swelling..i went to my first follw-up after the cast removal..i went on friday that just past ...about 10 days post-op..The PS proceeded to push down (painfully hard) and mold the hump and nose to the point where i teared up..ouch!..lol..he showed me an pressure exercise to do a few times a day and gave me a few shots of cortisone into the nose..one of the shots hurt..felt like it hit cartilage or bone...the swelling went down alot (i guess from the shots) and i saw a great..straight profile..but the bridge was bruised from him and lookin a bit purplish and hurt real bad..
now a couple days later, i see a bump in the middle of the bridge..which i dont remember seeing before and it hurts to do my pressure exercises on it..I am wondering if he re-broke it or hurt me in some way due to the pushing and molding he did..or if its just a result of that deep shot that hurt and will subside in time..idk, but either way im a bit depressed cuz of it..if it wasnt there prior to the follow-up then im praying its just some more swelling..
i know i am very early in my recovery stage still but cant help to wonder if the $5,600 was a waste if it doesnt straighten out, ya know..but ill stay positive cuz im reading alot about the different areas of swelling follwing a procedure..overall i think itll be okay and i should be happy :)
