    I say go for it, if it’s something you’ve always wanted done.

    If it’s something you for sure plan on doing in the future, I think before your wedding. You’ll have these pictures forever.

    I think if you’re going to do it anyway, why not before your wedding?

    If you absolutely know you want to do it- do it now! While I haven’t had any plastic surgery before I have been through surgery- it isn’t that bad, I would suggest getting a valium for before because you will be nervous and that is normal. 

    I have always wanted a nose job, I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to it because I’m always making excuses.

    I haven’t ever had plastic surgery, but I’ve always heard that nose jobs are one of the most painful surgeries to recover from. I’m really not trying to scare you, I just want you to be the most informed you can possibly be before making such a big life decision.

    If you feel like it is something you need to do, then I say go for it! None of us have to live your life – you do – and if it’s what makes YOU happy, that’s all that matters!

    How does your fiance feel about this? Just curious!

    Best of luck in whatever you decide!! 🙂 🙂

    I wish I could have done it before my wedding. If money wasnt an object, I would do it in a flash

    I had plastic surgery- reconstruction from breast cancer and knowing everything I know now, I encourage people to never wait another minute if it will make you happy. Do it! You should be fine by the time of your wedding but I would discuss your date with your doctor to go over anything complications that might take longer just to make sure. Good luck and I hope it goes well!

    My Darling Husband has had 3 rhinoplasties and I am getting one to fix a broken nose.  I have spoken to most of the plastic surgeons in town and they all have told me that for full complete recovery and complete swelling to go down, it takes a year.  Not just the you can go out and no one can tell recovery, but the final how you will look recovery.  Darling Husband said that is just about right, which is why I intentionally have waited to get mine.

    Darling Husband has tried very hard to talk me out of it as have several friend who have had it done.  They all say if they wouldn’t have had to have them done, they would not have done them.  Darling Husband even goes as far as saying that he would rather take antibiotics the rest of his life rather than ever have one again, alittle melodramatic, but I am not sure he is kidding.  I am going to do it anyway, I am tired of not being able to breath and of the sinus infections it has caused me.

    Surgery time off can be a few days to a few months, I’ve never had my nose done, but sometimes your doctor will work with you on the time off. I’m in California and disability doesn’t kick in until you have been off for 7 days, something to think about. I’m not sure how disability works for elective surgery either. I recommend taking off more time than less time, it is much easier to go back to work early than it is to extend your return date. Plus if you come back early bosses take it as good work ethic, extending time can be seen as the opposite by bosses and coworkers. Even for some of my cancer treatments people were really rude about extensions, like I could help it!
