I've always had trouble breathing through the nose and I've always felt insecure about the way it looks so it was only a matter of time to get my nose "done" and I wanted it to happen as soon as possible.
I am now 22 years old and I had the procedure on 7 August. It's been approximately 2 months and 3 weeks.
Now I know it's still a little early and I can feel that my nose is still swollen but I am a bit worried about the result.. The doctors told me that it should be okay in "a couple of months" (2-3), and I pretty much know that it takes 6-12 months to actually see the result and I try and stay positive about it and I tell myself when the swell is gone it will be perfect but as days go by I start getting more and more worried because I dont see any change..
The problem is mainly the hump of the nose. I had a hump before surgery and I asked the doctor to reduce it. I told him I didnt want the perfect nose or a huge change, just that I wanted a better version of what I already had but at times when I look at myself in the mirror I feel like the hump is now worse than before.. It's not far from the ideal I have in mind but I just dont see it getting there.. I feel like the part of the bone is completely unswollen but the cartilage part still is and it looks a little bad to me and the problem is its been 3 months and I dont see much change in it...
Another problem i've been noticing the last couple of days is that when I wake up I feel my nose much more swollen than for example last week but I'm thinking maybe it's because of the weather changing and getting colder..
