I then decided I needed to get surgery done, or else I would see problems later down the road (possible sleep apnea, other complications). I also had a dorsal hump I didn't particularily like too much, so I decided while getting the septoplasty procedure, I may as well reduce the dorsal hump!
The procedure went amazing, the consultation was great, and within a span of about a month to two months, my consultation, digital imaging, and appointment was booked.
Yesterday (May 10, 2013), was my operation, and I see positive results already.
I have minor bruising and swelling under my left eye, but other than that there is no pain whatsoever (the only problem is sleeping, that is absolute hell at times because I tend to sleep on my side, and find it almost impossible to breathe out of my mouth in order to achieve a comfortable sleep).
I am of Iranian and Greek descent, and that explains the structure of my nose (persian genetics are to pinpoint here!). For future patients that read this review and are considering rhinoplasty, I highly reccomend it. The splint is supposed to come off on May 21st (my birthday!) and I will keep you guys updated over the next couple of months.
The procedure was a LITTLE pricey, but worth every penny because Dr. Solomon showed extreme expertise and care in regards to his field. He was very calm, reassuring, and kind throughout the entire process. I will update this post and finalize whether this operation was worth as much as it was set out to be in a couple of months!
