First Rhinoplasty/Chin Implant with Dr. Michael M. Kim. Portland, OR
I am hoping I can have a nice smooth and...
Had my pre-op appointment today.
Found out I am pregnant! Surgery will have to be rescheduled.
Surgery rescheduled June 10th, 2016
Tomorrow is surgery day!
Checked in, changed into a gown, IV inserted, Dr.Kim came in to mark my face then I was wheeled to the OR. Next thing I remember is waking up in the recovery room with the worst headache but it subsided after I took the Rx pain medication. Day two I only needed to take one extra strength Tylenol every four hours. Today, day three I didn't take any pain medication. My nose is runny and one nostril looks larger than the other but I am not too concerned since I am noticing positive changes daily. Can't wait to see my results this Wednesday during my postop. Only negative, the nurses after surgery made me feel rushed to check out and did a poor job explaining discharge details. If you would like to see pictures PM me and I will send you updates and pictures.
Eight days post op
When I first had my cast removed (5daya postop) my nose looked wide but it has thinned out substantially and looks great. My chin is still swollen; as each day passes it's shrinking down and looking nice. Overall I am happy. Even my husband and stubborn parents who were against me having these procedures admit I look good.
Three months post op and couldn't be happier.
Dr. Kim's bedside manner, how accessible he is, along with his amazing work makes him a great Doctor. He emailed me pictures of his past work plus answered questions I forgot to ask during my consult. He's prompt to reply via email which I found refreshing as most doctors pass this task onto their nurses/PA's. Dr. Kim also managed my expectations and over delivered. I look and feel absolutely beautiful, have an amazing profile and have been receiving tons of compliments. I plan on using Dr. Kim in the future for other treatments (botox, fillers etc..)
