Good luck!! πŸ™‚ I would like to have that done, but don’t have the means to do so. I broke mine when I was young so it’s crooked and I have problems breathing, BUT it will have to wait if I ever decide to do it. lol But hope everything goes well! Keep us posted!! I’d like to know how the experience was.

As the patient it can definitely seem like a huge and rare ordeal, but know that to the cosmetic surgeon this is generally a relatively routine procedure. He/She will have tons of experience and you have nothing to be worried about.  Good luck and recover well.

Wow, exciting and scary stuff!  The pp is right, this is routine for them and you’ll be just fine.  I’m excited for you!  I, too, have had mine broken and it’s crooked and has a bump and I HATE my profile.  I don’t really have trouble breathing (beyond many sinus infections which probably isn’t really related to my nose per se) so I doubt I’d be covered for a surgery but good for you!

I’d love to see before and afters if you’re comfortable with it, but if you’re not I totally understand!  This is, after all, the internet, lol.

Good luck tomorrow!!

Good luck.  I hope you love your result and have a quick healing process.

I had tons of cosmetic stuff done before the wedding (though no surgery), and I’m so happy that I did.  The wedding was just and excuse to work on myself and feel better about the skin that I’m in.  And I do.  I hope you will too.   πŸ™‚

I have been reading your blog and I am excited for you! It is going to go so well. Just remember the doctor has done this procedure a thousand times most likely, so it will be a breeze! I hope you recover quickly and pain free!

I broke my nose when I was younger and had a rhinoplasty to fix it when I was 18. It corrected a lot of what I was insecure about, but I definitely wouldn’t say it’s perfect. But that’s ok, I’m ok with how I look! The surgery itself wasn’t really bad. I was totally out of it for a day, and then after that I had mild pain but serious bruising. Black and blues all over my face. They went away within a couple of weeks. I wish you nothing but the best! I’ve never been sorry I did it.

Guess what? I’ve had one πŸ˜‰ ! I had mine in Dec 2009 . I also broke my nose as a child and had a huuuge bump that I hated. It didn’t help that my nose was on the large the side either> when I was growing people called me Tucan SAm… yes mean middle schoolers.

I’m going to be SUPER honest about my experience πŸ˜€ But even though what I tell you might sound scary, it was completely worth it!

So, what can I tell you about my procedure and recovery? I was pretty much miserable for about 2 weeks. Good News? I’ve totally forgotten about those 2 weeks and I’m sooo happy I did it! I was sooo groggy from the pills for about a day after. Apparently I had some bad bleeding through the night and my mom had to take me in to the doctor’s office at midnight. I remember the days after the surgery it hurt pretty bad. Anything close to touching my cast sent shivers down my spine. I couldn’t breathe cause my nose was clogged up by blood clots. After a few days when the blood was old and dried up it smelled aweful and I couldn’t do anything about it. I had to sleep sitting down cause it was easier to breathe that way. My face got really swelled up and I had hematomas that lasted for about a month. My nose was pretty sensitive for about 2 months. Even kissing my honey was sort of painful.

Buuuuut . It all went away, and I’ve forgotten the days of not being able to breath through the nose and bloody q-tips and swelled cheeks πŸ˜€ .

Also, when I got my cast removed I almost cried because my nose looked soooo weird and narrow and thin. My doctor told me that it’s normal becuase that way it’ll “settle” into the intended form. And it did :D.

I’ll pm you with my before, during, and after pics!!!


Good luck, you’ll be fine!

Hope you love it πŸ™‚

My big appearance improving splurge post engagement was laser hair removal, because I feel like even if I shave my underarms in the morning, I have a “shadow” there by evening, and cringed thinking of the photographer having to photoshop out my gross armpits in 200 pictures. Haha. It was SO worth it and I haven’t even gotten married yet!

Good luck!
