College Student, Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

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). H... 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... READ MORE

Questions from ColoradoRanger

Should I Get a Revision Rhinoplasty or Opt for a Non-surgical Method? (photo)

I recently had an open rhinoplasty (about 4 weeks ago) to remove my dorsal hump. However, the surgery has proven so far to be ineffective. Because a great deal of the swelling... READ MORE

Poorly defined nose after two surgeries. Is it worth going under again? (photo)

Elongate Nose and Decrease Nostril Show with Filler? (photos)

Hi, I've had 4 nasal surgeries before. However, I still have a overly shortened nose that yields a distracting degree of nostril show. Can hyaluronic acid be injected in the... READ MORE

Literally, I'm trying to get a nose that looks like yours, your projection is perfect. I just had a procedure to actually elongate/project my nose...it's apparently a very tricky procedure. I might go under the knife again if my doctor... READ COMMENT

Drink plenty of fluids! Hope your recovery journey goes smoothly. READ COMMENT

Your morphs might be too unrealistic (e.g. your tip morph seems too reduced)...it would probably be better to just have facial plastic surgeons do the digital imaging and choose the surgeon with the sense of aesthetics closest to yours. READ COMMENT

Have you gotten a second opinion by another facial plastic surgeon? They may be able to determine if you do have a open roof deformity even at 2 months post op. READ COMMENT

Can you post more before pictures? READ COMMENT
