Dallas, I think you look fantastic and gorgeous. It's quite obvious you still have swelling..not to mention that even without seeing a post op pic, you are still only two weeks! I keep telling myself that too. I love the front look, but the profile my tip also is swollen it freaks me out sometimes. I think it could also be the illusion how things get thrown off when you alter the bridge. I think there is a huge psychological thing going on too. The face we've seen for how many years has changed from one day to the next. I've read so many people think they look bad, when in fact it's the opposite, it's just they look different. Most of the time it is an improvement, but I think people have unrealistic expectations.

Don't beat yourself up over it emotionally. The waiting certainly sucks, but that's also all we have at this point. I'm also almost 2 weeks post op. Be well!

Default your nose seems to be ok-in my opinion

Hi Dallashousewife,
Give it time; your nose seems to be ok. It suits your face well in my opinion. Let your eyes adjust to it and get more familiar vwith it. If you want to go for a revision go for it and make sure you choose a reliable surgeon who does nt rip you off and who would not change the shape of it. If I were you, I would leave it as it is; but this is just my opinion. gd luck!

Reading these has helped me calm down and understand that it REALLY does take months and months for final results. If you're stuck, I know a great surgeon in Toronto, Canada that specializes in secondary rhinoplasty's ... but I'm sure u can find one in your area. As my surgeon told me last week, after rhino people literally become obsessed with their noses. I thought mine crooked afterwards, and asked my mom, dad, and the surgeon and no one could see it. You just have to remember to keep level headed.

And yes, I would wait a full year to get it revised because either A.. you will grow to like it and, B. it won't be healed and since your nose is already extra weak you will want to make sure it has enough strength to go back into surgery.

take care and I know everything will turn out just fine. Besides, you're already super gorg!!

I live in Toronto and I'm looking for a good Surgeon for a rhinoplasty. This would be a first for me, so I'd love some good recommendations.

Thanks!

My nose is much longer than pre-surgery. My surgeon asked me at three different appointments which side I wanted to go with on the tip - the longer side or the shorter side. I was very indecisive, even on the day of surgery and my surgeon did not offer any advice one way or another. He said it probably would not make much of a difference either way. I chose to go with the longer side because, as I told him, I did not want too much nostril showing. Well, now I have an extremely long nose that does not fit my face. Has anyone had this happen? Is there a chance that this is due to swelling and that it won't always appear too long? Also, the bump in the bridge of my nose seems to be the same as before surgery. I am pretty depressed. I would never have thought that I would come out of surgery with an even longer/bigger nose! All that money spent for nothing. Help! I have tried to attach pictures from both angles, but I am not sure if they are here or not. Do I really have to wait a full year to have the tip revised?

I am sorry you feel sad. I personally don't think it looks bad or too long. Listen, I know what bad rhinoplasty is. I had one by Dr Kotler in LA and it was pretty bad, and he left me with the tab to correct it. Yours look like a normal nose. Mine took one year before the permanent shape sort of settled. And every mistake of Dr Kotler's became even more visible. Yours don't seem to have defects, but is more about an esthetic opinion.

Hi Dallashousewife,

how has your nose changed since you last posted on here?? It's been almost two years since your surgery and I was wondering if you have seen any improvement of your nose - has the tip shrunk and has your nose gotten a little shorter (you complained it seemed longer than you had hoped for).
I had my surgery 1 year and 4 months ago. I can tell you that my tip still seems to be a little bulbous, but i'm not sure if it's due to the surgery or it will remain this way, because maybe my surgeon did not shape it as much as i wanted... I will have to wait and see at least another year. They say it may take up to two years for the tip to really go down.

I hope you are happy with yours!!!
