Consultation is scheduled!!!
New Dr and Consultation
I want to have Alarplasty done....... let's see what the Dr thinks of my nose first.
Update After Consulting with the Dr!!!
I'M scheduled for March and paid deposit. I'm having Alarplasty!!! I can't believe it!!! I told my Mom and Sisters already. They all know it's something I've always wanted so I have everyone supporting my decision.
DR Janjua already gave me all my prescriptions. Everything is in a nice folder just waiting for the big day. :-) I will post better pictures when I get a chance.
Just Bumped up Surgery DATE!!!
Whenever I speak to Dr Janjua, I feel more comfortable and ready for the procedure. I told a few more people and they are supportive but tell me to be prepared for all the questions that will be asked. I'm not worried about that at all.
I moved my date from March 15th to March 3rd!! My Mom will be visiting on the 18th and she wants to see me without the stitches LOL. Anything for MOMMY!!! My husband is just ready for it to be done already so I can stop talking about it O_O I can't help myself!!!!
I don't have a problem with my tip or bridge..... so I feel Alarplasy is perfect for the look I desire. I feel it will help me maintain my ethnic features and give me the small but noticeable change I desire.
Thanks for all the kid words!!!
I wanted to update my review with the correct Dr.....
I wanted to update my review with the correct Dr....... I wanted to have my nostrils reduced and that is really all I would like done. Never had a problem with the shape of my nose.
I've visited a number of Dr's that all wanted to convince me to do work on my bridge and tip and I felt that I wouldn't get the results I was looking for. They really need to think about what the client wants and not what they believe everyone finds attractive.
I had a problem with my flare for so many years.... and any time I hade the money I couldn't find the right Dr until NOW!!!
I found Dr Janjua here on Real Self and I also watched a number of his videos on you tube perform the exact procedure I wanted.
I immediately scheduled a consultation with his office and he took his time listening to what I wanted. I broke down in his office from all the emotions because I knew he was te Dr that would be performing the procedure that I'very wanted sick I was in middle school.
Well.... Today was that day and I must say..... I was super nervous and ready and anxious. He kept me calm. His assistant help my hand and made me feel comfortable.
It was done in office :-) My husband waited in the waiting room for me. The procedure took a little while but not long.
I'll attach before and after pictures......
I was very depressed from the swelling and did a lot of crying on day 2. I'm such a big baby :-( My Son came home and told me he wanted to see my new nose. LOL He told me my flare is gone and yes its swollen but it looks good and my nostrils are very even. I felt 80% better after talking to a 12 year old O_O.
My daughter is 7 and and didn't notice a difference till today. She said...."Oooh Mommy you look like your Sister".
I took a Xanax and woke up to a duck lip... I don't know what caused it. It might just be normal swelling. It already started to go down a lot but I had Sushi and I'M guessing it mixed with something in the meds and caused my lip to swell. I can see more definition in my nose. It looks less like a balloon :-) Dr Janjua is really one of the best kept secrets in Ethnic Rhinoplasty!!!
over 1 month update
I attached some pics.... sometimes my nose looks really small but when I smile I see hints of my old nose and I like it. The size is perfect!!!!
When meeting new people I would stress myself about them looking at my nose. I honestly feel like I didn't get a job because of it. The interviewer just kept looking at my old nose the entire time. It might have been in my head but it made my interview horrible. Now I'm just ready to do new things and start my own busness. I'm not afraid to take to people anymore :-)
