It is very frightening to entrust your appearance with another person. Therefore, my number one requirement was that my Dr. be experienced and I knew from experience that Dr. Bruneteau and Surgical Images were experienced professionals.
The day of the surgery everyone made me feel very comfortable and I knew I was in good hands. After surgery I went home and sleep in a recliner chair. I took my meds as instructed and I was never in a lot of pain. It took me about two weeks before I felt comfortable to go out in public as I had black eyes. I also had septoplasty to fix a deviated septum so my surgery may have been a bit more intense.
The whole experience was more irritating then painful as a splint covers your nose for about a week and I had stents in my nose for threes weeks. The stents make you feel like your are REALLY congested. Once the stents come out (and it does NOT hurt - just feels a little weird for like a second) Life is good! I could tell my nose was smaller even though it was still swollen.
I am at the four month mark and my nose is still stiff but, as time goes by it continues to look better. I am very happy with my decision and of once again with Dr. Bruneteau and Surgical Images. WHY DID I NOT DO THIS A LONG, LONG TIME AGO! Oh, well better late than never.
