Nose Job?

I'm currently saving up for a rynoplasty. I detest my nose. I know what it's like to have people saying "you don't need one, your nose is fine". They ain't the ones who have to live with it!

Surgical Rhinoplasty is a major ENT / plastics procedure where the surgeon has to "break" your nose and then shave & re-position bone & tissue into a new position to "set". I have witnessed many of these. Every patient who has ever had it says they feel like they've been in a ring with Mike Tyson. You will be off work for at least six weeks and it will be six months to a year before all the swelling and side effects have settled down. Some people are delighted with the results. Some are disappointed as they they either had unrealistic expectations or self confidence issues they blame on a part of their body.

Have to agree with all that has been said before... When I stopped competing in Kung Fu tournaments, I went for rhinoplasty to improve my breathing after having my nose broken at least six times over 14 years.

When I came round after the op, I was in a hell of a state and two days later, when they removed the tampons from my nose, I haemoraged and almost bled to death (I lost over 3 pints of blood in a few minutes). The blood was pouring out of my nose and down my throat; the floor was covered, I was covered and I filled three of the cardboard poop trays to overflowing before they got new tampons hammered in to stem the bleeding (which was horrible too, as they are about 5 inches long and rock solid when they whack them in!) By that time I was dizzy and feeling cold. I received one unit of whole blood and three bags of saline intravenously. Three days later I left hospital but I suffered from permanent fatigue for about 18 months and it was 2-3 years before I had anything like the fitness I had before the op back.

I honestly don't see anything wrong with your nose; it suits your face (if that doesn't sound odd). Unless you are severely distressed with your nose I would think very hard before opting for surgery.

I had a nose job and was left with 2 black eyes and had a pot and stitches for 2 weeks. The swelling actually takes 2 years to fully go down but its unoticeable. I have to say i'm thinking of getting mine done again as i have a bump on the ridge.

Oh and i have a tiny Y shape scar on the septum but it is unnoticeable to say i had 27 stitches in it!

hope this helps!
