Sorry, it's been awhile since I've been on. I took a break because being on the board was making me even more fixated on my nose. I was getting really depressed. This surgery certainly can be psychologically damaging so anyone reading this who is considering a nose job make sure you are aware of ALL repercussions/risks, physical and psychological. But I just thought I'd share with everyone the latest with my nose post-op/post injections.
So I had pollybeak if anyone recalls, and about 2 months ago I received steroid injections from my surgeon (one time only). It's been 9 months since the surgery itself.
I took pics from a few different angles.
Pic#1: This was the original pollybeak.
Pic #2: This was taken today. If you look close you can see the little lump that is still there not quite centre of my bridge.
Pic#3: This is me pulling down on my face muscles. It still looks quite bulbous as you can see when I do that. You can really tell there is an uneven lump there.
Pic#4: This one is really unfortunate
, but over the course of the day I get a distinct red line across my nose. The entire bottom half turns red and it's still very oily. I'm really self conscious about the redness, and I think it's a side effect from the steroid. Does anyone know if this is normal and/or if it goes away eventually?
Overall, my nose is very lumpy now. The bottom part of my tip sank down more after the injection. However, I now have a chunk of hard tissue sticking out near the top of my nose almost in the centre of my tip. It moved there after the injection. Perhaps it is my fault and I didn't massage it properly like he told me, but it feels pretty gross more than anything. I still like it loads better than my original nose, but I'm also still fixated on it and I'm seeing my surgeon again Tuesday. I think the next option is revision...thoughts?
