day 19 post ....

Hi all im 19 days post now and becoming obsessed with looking at my nose in the mirror :0its taking over my life :0 ... i still have a small bump/bumps on my nose i can press them down so dont think its bone .. my nose still looks big i did stil want a biggish nose but slightly smaller than this . Im nearly at the 3wk mark so i dong know if theres much more swelling to go down. My nose is still sore to touch and my tip is rock hard i find it hard to smile and stuff its weird ... breathing is good cant complain there ... this waiting game us a lot harder then i thought .


5weeks post

So im now 5 weeks post swellin gone down a bit i can still see tip is swollen and iv still swellin on bridge like everyone iv good days and bad today im having a mehhh day i just wish this small lump would go because then for me my nosr would be prefect once swelling all went my bridge is stil sore if i put pressure on it i sneeze lol ... my tip is numb but sore its a really weird sensation although its early days i would say its worth it im so much more confident and although im obsessing about the bump its still alot better then before:)


Hey all just giving a small update :) im hitting the 2month mark its crazy feels millions of yrs ago when i went to belgium crazy . Anyway i stil have a little bump that gives a tiny hump illsuion also my tip is looking long i no its stil swollen though but dont think itl change too much! I do love my new nose im so much more confident in myself, however, Im going to get the revision to remove bump and make it a lil smaller :) its annoying the thoughts of goin threw all that again but if it means il be happy in the end itl br worth it :)

3 and half months

hey quick update love love my nose thinking of revision for the small bump i have although today im loving my nose i go through my stages of wanting it redone and then not lol!!!!! but its great i put sunglasses on n they kept sliding down my nose were usually held up by a big disgusting bump!!!! the tip is stil a bit sore to touch but its healing good and it looks sooo natural no one has noticed they know somethings different but they just think its my hair or something ! i really do think if you have an issue with your nose just go for it you have one life you might as well do what will make you happy i would definitely say it was worth it and dr oelbrandt is great and always has time to get back to me if iv a question!!!!

3 and a half months


hi all its been a while... just quick update ... do not think il need revision love my nose its prefect really ... so happy best choice i ever made:) really recommend just going for it if you feel its a issue :)

7months post

Heres a pic of my nose now

sorry ment to post these were

7months post

1yr post

Hey its just over a year now since my op and must say time really is best healer .. i really lovd my new nose. I still can see a tiny lump just n lighting or a bright fladh so i am debaiting revision but then what if its too small n i hate it then also dont think i could go through all the healing again.. anyone here looking at photos i say if its on your mind a long time find a good surgeon and just do it :)

1yr and 3months post

Hi guys I'm 1yr and 3minths post and still haven't looked back but still unsure weather to get revision I need a few opinions . From the side it's not so bad it's just the front that bugs me because my nose would be absolutely prefect without it !!!

2yrs later happy happy girl

2year update my nose is perfect. I love it i think I I was too eager and didn't left the swelling settle as I was at it 24/7 as you can see it's perfectly straight. I went for closed rhino I think I should have went for open so I could of got some off my tip to shorten it but then I don't know as I told him I didn't want a small small nose just didn't want a bump Dr. Olebrandt suggested open I wanted closed I was nervous about nerve damage that's why. But I would prob go for open as I think I need a little off tip but I am really happy with it and I don't think I will go and get the tip done as I am now content in myself.

I would highly recommend dr. Olebrandtin Belgium if anyone is thinking about it book a Skype consultation and have a talk with him that's what I did ????????
