I think this title is pretty self-explanatory, but if you can't tell then let me just say...
I'm getting a nose job today!
Ok, let's back it up to one month ago. Early September, I consulted with one of the doctors that I work for about the possibility of having a rhinoplasty. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate my nose but I have never been too happy with my profile. Whenever I smile my nose tends to point down and widen my nostrils. With that being said, my doctor and I were able to come up with a surgery plan in order to correct this. He will be raising my tip in order to improve my profile, and will bring in my nostrils so they do not appear as wide. Also, he will be injecting fat into my lower eyelids and chin to improve my face shape. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about:
So what exactly is a rhinoplasty? A rhinoplasty corrects and restructures the nose. Every nose is different, and so what might be needed for one person would not necessarily work for someone else. Restoring functions, correcting the shape, narrowing the nostrils, or aesthetically enhancing the overall appearance of the nose are all possible options when consulting about a rhinoplasty.
I am currently waiting to be pulled back into the operating room. IV is in hand, and I have marks all over my face to use as "mapping" for the doctor.
Nervous and excited accurately describes how I'm feeling right now. This is my first surgery, and I have never been put under any sort of anesthesia! I will be posting updates on healing time for the first month from surgery, and then an overall experience for anyone interested in knowing more about the whole healing process. I won't sugar coat anything! Keep me in your thoughts for the next few weeks and I will post again as soon as I can on my progress. Thanks for reading!
