Besides my nose...everything eles has turned out ok. My eyes look so much better, brighter, less puffy. My doc took out a lot of fat-pads from the bottom, and then brought the skin up a little. My pores around my nose appear smaller because the skin was pulled up a bit. My upper eyelid no longer hangs over. He didn't make it too tight, he just removed enough skin to create a perfect eye crease without droop. Hereditarily, I have ptosis and dark, puffy undereyes in my family. I'm glad to be done with that!
It's taking a while longer than I expected for my chin to take effect. He performed lipo to removed yet another hereditary feature of mine! It was the one procedure that actually hurt weeks post-op. My neck was sore and swollen, and felt rubbery...probably from scar tissue formation. Now, the swelling is gowing down and my chin looks and feels better.
I like the shape of my lips. I do wish they were a little bigger though...but I can go get them plumped w/ a resylane injection in the future. The doc said that the fat transfer to my lips...from my abdomen (which really hut my lower tummy for a while!), was barely a syringe full. And the fat will last longer than other things. 50% will remain in the lips permanently, as opposed to restalane injections, etc., that only last 3-6 months, for me anyways.
I'm not sure if I like my laugh lines injected w/filler. It was difficult to smile for a week or two post-op. My smile was crooked and my lips were swollen. I'm sure the filler probably softened my features a little.
My doc would not take any fat out of my cheeks though. He said that I'm too young, and if he took any fat out, I would need a face lift way too early. Fat supposedly makes your face more youthful. I wanted to bring-out my cheek bones. But I'd rather follow his advice.
When I first started really planning my surgery...I only was planning for a rhinoplasty. But, I decided to get the other procedures accomplished all at once. Everyday that I looked in a mirror, those minor things bothered me so bad that I let it ruin my life! I'm so glad that I had these procedures, finally! I can look in the mirror now and see progress with my nose. I can go without makeup and not feel embarrassed. People don't ask me anymore if I'm tired, or sad because my eyes were so puffy and droopy. And best of all, my hated nose is finally gone!
