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). 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 GroundHogDay

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

You got a great result, but honestly you had a stellar nose before...So sure you got a 10/10 nose, but you started off with a nose that many people would pay to have. Anyway, thanks for your update and it's great to hear the surgery was... READ COMMENT

I don't think the after photos show a dramatic deformity in any way, but I definitely think your nose was overly shortened (and also a minor inverted-v deformity developed). What happened when you approached your surgeon about the... READ COMMENT

Was your tip successfully lengthened with the revision? READ COMMENT

Oh, yeah, the nausea after surgery can get pretty bad. Did they give you a patch or some type of medication to help with it? READ COMMENT

Wow, that sounds kind of strange...Thanks for your review though. Have you considered steroid shots for the scar tissue? READ COMMENT
