Hi guys
I've been following real self for almost 2 years now and I must say I'm grateful for the honest reviews and opinions I've seen here. Well now I would like to share my story with y'all. I had a rhinoplasty in Baltimore in 2014 which was somewhat a disaster, the dr I chose was so conservative to the point that I almost thought that he didn't do anything. But with the little that was done I managed to return to England with a pretty crooked nose which worsened over time due to excessive scar tissue. I lived with this for a year and contemplated looking for another American rhinoplasty surgeon as I did not have faith that British rhinoplasty surgeons could understand the complexity of the African nose. Anyhoo I did not want to go through the whole process of traveling again so I took a step of faith and sought a British surgeon. I only met with one surgeon and decided to go with him based on 2 pics on his website. It took me 6 weeks to decide to go with him and so far I have been impressed. My op was on 6 Oct and I am now recovering. No bruising and my breathing has improved significantly (this had been obstructed by the vast amount of scaring in my nose from the first surgery). I will have the cast removed on Tuesday 13 October. Pics to follow if anyone's interested:)

Day before cast removal....

So my cast will be removed tomorrow morning. My nose looks great even with the cast and my bruising is minimal because Dr Ion said he 'shaved' the bone rather than breaking it which apparently causes horrendous bruising. I'm gonna post some pics with my cast tonight for y'all to see. Btw I have noticed that my nostrils are uneven but you can only see this from underneath.....hopefully as the swelling goes down things should even out.
