Virginia Black Unique Flat Wide Nose - Virginia Beach, VA

I have been wanting this done since i was a kid....

I have been wanting this done since i was a I'm excited and nervous....i want to still look like me but not like me lol if that makes sense. ..i guess what I'm saying is i still want a black girl nose only slimmer and not as wide with more definition my of a bridge ...i will be getting my procedure done april 6th with dr Choe he seems like he know what hes doing has a few before and after photos of others with a ethnic background. ..he was very pleasant but stern on what he thinks will work for my face...he said he wants my nose to still look ethnic and has no desire to change it into something it shouldn't be

no gortex implant for me

Since I've been on, i know i will not be taking my doctors advice on an implant .It doesnt really work for African Americans who originally had a classic black nose to begin with. (Wide flat big tip).I got really nervous after i had an ah hah moment and emailed the office that i will not be having any implants. Lol I attached noses that i liked and didnt like and as soon as the office opened i called them to let them know my concerns. Dr Choes assistant was very kind and said that the price would come down 200$ dollars and she forward my new wants to Dr choe she said in my two weeks appointment that me and him would go over my concerns more carefully and see what's achievable she said don't worry no problem on changing things up and to call back if i had anymore issues. I got off the phone feeling very relieved

bye nosie

Time going by fast

people .... other black people in particular

I'm running into alot of negativity with me wanting this seems to some if you want a smaller nose your trying to be white??? Where do people black people get that from? I just want a smaller black nose and even if i did get a "white " nose you would know I'm blavk just by looking at my skin people can we come together and be supportive of someone wanting to be the best version of themselves??

getting cold feet?/ some noses I do like

I'm feeling very nervous about getting the rhinoplasty now...i keep thinking what if i look overdone? Or my nose looks too point or my nostrils are too small and i look weird afterwards...or what if he doesnt do enough and i look exactly the same urghhh i know my surgeon is great he's experienced with AA noses/face but i guess I'm tripping

recovery road

Day of surgery was a experience. ..when i got there i couldn't get i called Dr Choe to let him know i was outside...he told me the nurse was at the side entrance. ..she wasn't lol but arrived shortly....they had me take a pregnancy test and empty my bladder hooked me to an IV and Dr.Choe came in my room to brief me and i took the opportunity to have another consulation lol which confirmed that we were on the right page ...they wheeled me back into the operating room and last thing i remember i was talking to my anesthesist about my profession lol next thing I knew i was awake and groggy saying my face hurt and i had to pee badly lol...later that day my throat was killing me and i had to suck on throat lozenges due to the oxygen mask giving me a sore throat so...

recovery days

All that medicine really constipates a i had to take a stool softener. ..i havent been able to breathe thru my nose that good because of the splints...its a job keeping up with pills nasal saline 5x a day and i been having horrible nasal drip....i really couldn't sleep at night since i have been breathing out my mouth so Dr.Choe prescribed Ambien to help me sleep thank God lol I've been using it since the surgery ...i shouldn't need it after these splints are out. appetite wise is getting better at first couldn't finish a cup of yogurt now i can almost eat a full meal the swelling around my eyes are going down....thanks to arnica probably. swelling got bad on the 3rd day...those 1st 3 days you'll need someone there with you as a caregiver for sure lol afterwards you'll definitely need to pace yourself...i been out in the world with the cast on to a few places since I'm one of those people who can't stay home all day lol...and it wasn't too bad some people look sympathetic ,ask question or look like they got far as my nose i can tell it's more define and my lip looks fuller but that's about it lol...can't wait til the cast comes off and these irritating splints are out...I've seen Dr.Choe twice since surgery for checkups. ..he's great :)
