I've finally decided the get my rhinoplasty yesterday 9/15/11 after many years of thinking about it. I wasn't completely unhappy with my existing nose I had which I thought was too big with nares that were too wide. I did however thought getting it revised would enhance my features and soften my overall look. I'm asian with a pretty straight bridge, bulbous tip due to too much fatty tissue, thick skin and cartilage. My doctor was going to attempt to address these that attributed to my current nose.
I'm one day post op now. I have the splint on and will keep it on for 7 seven days. I can't wait to see the results. I have to say that I'm in no pain whatsoever. While under general anesthesia I decided to get a chin lipo as well and so I have this awful looking chin strap to keep the skin back in placed. My lipo puncture site hurt more than the rhinoplasty. I will continue to post as I progress. Wish me the best.
