Do you have a similar before profile picture you could post (like the last one you posted). While it may not be a "perfect" nose, how much of an improvement do you feel it is over what you started out with?

I do think your tip will thin out over time, but it can take up to a year to truly see the results. As far as that little pollybeak deformity, I don't think that is from the swelling (sorry, I wish it were otherwise ) Do you mind me asking what doctor did your rhinoplasty?

The dorsum and bridge appear wide with rough transition. The alar grrove looks like it was positioned too far forward and the ala looks too round in comparison with the angles of the best of the nose.

As I stated in an earlier post, pollybeak is due to surgeon error. You do have a slight case, but like I have said definite improvement can be seen vs. your before pic. Your nose will continue to change.

Please keep us posted regarding your appointment and good luck!!!

My surgeon was Dr. Lloyd Van Wyck, he's in Canada. My going to see him tomorrow is not going to work out at this time, and I didn't actually have an appointment I was just dropping in. Instead I'm seeing my mother's surgeon on Wednesday because it's much closer. If he says it's serious enough that I need revision, I'll go to my surgeon. Otherwise I will just book an actual appointment around the 6 month mark because it's not like they can do anything until it's healed...

While I do think it's a slight improvement from my old nose, it's pretty much the same thing but in reverse now. Where I had a bump on my bridge, now I have one at the bottom. I thought once I got the surgery, it would be the solution to my insecurity about my nose.

The fact that I got it and my nose is still very flawed is causing me great distress and depression, I've been moping around and find it hard to look at myself or leave the house. It's a huge slap in the face. What if I go under the knife again only for it to be worse? I already had a chance to make it look normal, and it failed.

Danistarr,

I hope you get good feedback from the doc, and after some more time, you see the results you were hoping for.

Prior to going in for the surgery, what strategy was discussed with your doc? What specific adjustments/ changes did you two agree on?

He understood my needs perfectly. We were on the same page. The plan was to raise the tip because it drooped and take off the hump, making it smaller. It destroyed any hopes I had of getting into modeling. Breast implants and rhinoplasty are his specialty, and he told me they were his favorite to do when I asked (just out of curiosity).

It's hard for me to find any pictures that show my profile. This is as good as it's going to get. Looking back it's still DEFINITELY an improvement over that hideous nose. I'll put them both side by side again.

Do you have a front shot of your nose after the surgery?

The side view is the only way you can really tell there is an abnormality. It doesn't look so bad from the front.

That is customary with this condition, danistarr.

Default Updates?

Danistar,

Do you have any updates on your situation??? Did you see your doc?

I talked to a doc today, he said that in case of poly beak, steroid injections do help. Was this suggested to you?
