I'm a 21 year old college student who was completely unhappy with my nose! More specifically my profile view which had a bump and drooped down when I would smile. Every time I had to do a presentation in school I would be self conscious when my profile view faced the class and since I'm going to school to be a teacher the last thing I need is to be self conscious when standing in front a group of people. I started thinking about the possibility of getting rhinoplasty about 3 years ago when I found out someone I knew got one and realized it wasn't just something rich and famous people do! The more I looked into it the more common I realized it was among people my age. I did my research and immediately started saving every dollar I had.
I felt no pain, which was incredible! There was no discomfort whatsoever. When I got the splint off 8 days later I couldn't believe the piece of art that Dr. Joseph had created!! I feel I look now how I was always supposed to look. It's so nice to go out and not be self conscious about the way my nose looks from certain angles or how it's going to look if someone snaps a picture of me at a bad angle. I'm 1 month post-op and am still receiving loving care at every post-op appointment. I used to remember telling my mom years ago that if I had to choose between getting a car or getting a nose job- I'd pick the nose job and now my dream is a reality!
