College Student, Revision Surgery

I love swelling. I love the way it blankets the nose in a sheath of ambiguity. Did I just waste a cool 15k? Will I finally look good enough? The lack of certainty is intriguing, like Schrödinger's cat (or Schrödinger's nose job if you will, the nose is simultaneously f*ck** up and beautiful). However, the swelling is only temporal. It fades and all the neurotic questions are finally a... READ MORE

Residual Dorsal Hump

First of all, I am sorry that my story cannot be as inspiring as others here on RealSelf. However, I am obligated to be brutally honest with you wanderers of the Internet. I will tell the whole truth, both the good and the extraordinarily bad. (In advance, prepare for a melodramatic rambling) Where to begin? Adolescence.

It might be a too late...but have you asked for a refund? READ COMMENT

Great results, but I understand not liking the asymmetries. Also, your surgeon has an amazing revision policy...waiving the surgical fee twice, wow! READ COMMENT

Okay, well it might seem like a long time, but if your surgeon is skilled enough, I bet you'll be fine. It's good that your surgeon recognized the issue and is willing to help you out again. READ COMMENT

Thanks for posting your review! Your nose is definitely still swollen being only 6 weeks out of surgery, but it looks good so far. Hope you keep RS updated during your recovery! READ COMMENT

Hmmm...are you just waiting to have another tip surgery with your revision surgeon? READ COMMENT
