~~What happened to my nose? pics
I had a rhinoplasty quite a long time ago and recently injured the tip. I hit the tip with a sharp object pretty hard and afterward it looked different. The change may look subtle but it drastically affects the look of the rest of my face. I am trying to figure out exactly what I did to the tip because I don't want the wrong thing corrected. All I know is the tip looks different. It looks droopy and maybe pressed in or rounded down a bit at the tip. The crispness of the tip defining points seem less and the whole thing looks less perky and frankly bad. I don't know if the tip just fell down, became de-rotated or what. Any one who has any input would be great. I know I need to consult with a surgeon, I just want to figure out what exactly I did in the first place so I know what to ask for to be corrected. Is the tip cartilage just drooping, did it de rotate? ect ect. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I know the difference may look subtle but if you look closely you can tell.:cool:
Thankyou (the before injury are the first 3, after the last 4.
I do see what happened, its subtle but I know anything no matter how subtle is very noticeable when its the nose, Maybe its swollen - when did you have the injury? Man you must have really hit it....
My new nose is longer and I have to be so careful to not hit it... Course I just had the surgery 16 days ago and if I hit it you'll probably hear me scream where you live,.
I feel for you because this is stressful and when you go and have surgery on the nose you hope that the whole thing is behind you.
I hope this fixes itself on it own but you should see your surgeon and see what he says..
Keep us posted and good luck.
Please share the timeline of when surgery was and when the injury occurred. This may be due to healing and not because of hitting it.
Do you have before and after pictures?
I'm having a hard time seeing what's wrong
Thanks for the responses. Odemadrid the last 4 are after. Kooie I'm glad you can see it and know what I'm talking about, it's subtle but if you see my whole face it drastically affected it. I don't really want to post my whole face on a public forum though. The surgery was 10 years ago and I hit the nose over 6 months ago. It doesn't feel or look like swelling to me, the tip just looks drooped down to me. It may not seem like that big of a deal, and when you isolate the nose like I have in these pics it doesn't even seem to matter much but like I said it really affects my appearance.
It looks like a blunt shift to me. You would require tip refinement to correct it.
I do have recommendations, and yes, it does mean a straight forward cartilage shift.
Feel free to PM me.
Thanks Robyne, PM sent :) :cool:
Oh, and yes, a blunt shift indicates a very straighforward shift in the position of the cartilage.
