Recovery: The breast augmentation honestly was not a huge deal to recover from. It really wasn't that painful. The worst part was not being able to exercise! :-)
The Rhinoplasty for me was a big recovery period and not one I think I was fully prepared for. I bruised and swelled a lot! Luckily withing a few weeks, with the help of some make-up, was able to enter the world again. The other big obstacle was sunglasses. I had to use medical tape to tape the glasses above the bridge of my nose for nearly 3 or 4 months. I didn't realize it would be that long. Lastly, my nose was extremely sensitive for nearly 6 months or so after the surgery. The nose didn't hurt but if my kids bumped it, it felt like I was punched. These were the things I don't think I fully prepared myself for. However, I think my profile looks great and am happy that I did the surgery. I am not self-conscious yet I still look like myself.
