I've never thought my nose suited my face. As I am...
I've never thought my nose suited my face. As I am someone with a very small face I felt my nose what too large and took away from all my other features. Being two weeks post-op I can say it was the best decision I've ever made. I am confident in saying my nose not only suits my face, but works better then before. I had zero pain immediately and remained that way through my recovery (with a little help from the pain meds for the first two days). I had a great experience and I would recommend the procedure to anyone interested in rhinoplasty.
Before and After
I was sceptical to post a before and after considering I hate looking at the before, but I'm so in love with the after result I don't mind sharing. The pictures on the right are pictures I took on the morning of my surgery and the pictures I took on the left were 1 week post-op pretty much immediately after the cast was taken off.
4 months post-op!

4 months post
I'm currently sitting at the 4 months post-op mark and I'm feeling great. Not too much to report but day by day minimal swelling is going down, you can barely see my incisions (I had an open rhinoplasty) and that's about it. I don't even remember that I've had the surgery, I'm 100% over the moon with the results :) the only thing that's changed is my hair lol
Pre-op/post-op things and tricks

I had such a good experience so I thought I'd share some of my knowledge and tricks that helped me. Firstly taking arnica will help you tremendously but I started taking the pellets 2 weeks before surgery and for two weeks after (I don't know why but my bruising/swelling seemed so minimal compared to had extensive my surgery was). After wards having a baggey of frozen peas on my face was hard to keep in place so I took a regular latex glove and filled the fingers (minus the thumb) with the peas and then put half the fingers on one side of my nose and the other fingers on the other side and let it balance there. This really helped me when I was trying to sleep or just relax.
1 year post-op!
On July 20th I hit the one year post op mark! I'm still overjoyed with my results. It is the best decision I've ever made. Not much to report, I'm fully healed, my scars are tiny white lines and my nose has regained all its feeling. I
