I would have done this 1,000 times over for these results and the experience isn't painful, but more uncomfortable if anything. This is mostly due to the swelling that follows the procedure and the intense congestion after as well. You feel like you've got a headache and bad allergies.
I had never injured myself or anything that lead to these issues with my nose. Just born with awful facial asymmetry, which is still evident in my photo around my jaw.
What's crazy is I have been carrying myself differently to compensate for the crookedness of my nose all this years and now I am relearning what it feels like to actually look straight on. I will post more pictures later, so you can see just how straight my new nose really is.
I still have tape on it, but when my cast was removed, Dr. Golden cleaned me up and showed me my new nose without anything covering it. It literally brought tears to my eyes. It's so cute!
The best part is that I love my nose as it is right now. And there's actually significant swelling still happening in the tip, so it will continue to evolve as the weeks go on.
