Earlier this month I had my cast taken off. For the first 2 days right after I had gotten my cast and bandages removed, I was IN LOVE with my nose! Now, about 3 weeks and 2 days later, my nose has turned into a swollen potato! The thing that bothers me is how nice my nose was right after the PS took the cast and bandages off... I'm assuming that because it was in a cast and so condensed for a week and was bandaged down (also right after he took the cast off he put major pressure on it to shape it down)... I feel like because of that, that is why my nose was precious for the first 2 days following the cast. Now, ESPECIALLY the bottom portion of my nose seems to be huge to me and looks like it has just blown up (this is compared to how it looked RIGHT after the cast was off).
I know that specifically for me it may take 1-3 years for complete swelling to go down, but it's so hard to look in the mirror and feel so down and as if you don't see too much change.
Don't worry you are not alone there.
I had the EXACT same thing.
I had my cast taken off on the thursday, nose was abit clammy looking at 1st and oily,
but then by friday and saturday it looked AMAZING!! It was very stiff and swollen in the tip, but the up-turn curve in the tip was perfect.
I went out clubbing on saturday night and felt so happy and i finally looked nice...,
but then from sunday onwards throughout this week the tip has become EXTREMELY swollen and fat and bulbous,
and cos all the swelling is on the top-side of the tip its making the tip look down turned and droopy again!
I felt very very sad and upset and worried about this,
as i thought surely the swelling would be going down from what it was when cast came off, as that would be its max peak...,
not that it would have gotten ALOT LOT worse. Il put link to where my pics are-LookYourBestUK And then now with swelling-LookYourBestUK
