Booked in for a rhinoplasty tomorrow.

Sooooo nervous.

Any posters had this done?

I know it will be worth it but it's a big event!!shock

allegretto Mon 17-Oct-16 15:01:31

Good luck! I am thinking about having this done - would love to know how it goes.

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Mon 17-Oct-16 15:02:59

Can you treat us to some before and after pics?
Oh and good luck, hope it goes well flowers

Maudlinmaud Mon 17-Oct-16 15:03:03

Best of luck. Hope it turns out exactly how you want. I would love to have my tip refined if thats a thing. What are you hoping to correct?

YouHadMeAtCake Mon 17-Oct-16 15:03:06

Good luck from me too. Please let us know how it all goes.

I've not done this but I've had a boob lift and ear surgery. Both things have made me so much more confident and happy. Good for you x

thestarryeyedsurprise Mon 17-Oct-16 15:06:17

I've always wanted this done! Good luck OP. Would love to see before and after photos

Sovain Mon 17-Oct-16 15:09:28

Thanks all.

I plan to get DH to do my before shots later today.

I've been wanting this doing for years. It's not a horrendous nose but something a bit more feminine would suit my face better.

I have kept it low key though. Only a handful of people know about it.

Ssshhhhh wink

ChickenVindaloo Mon 17-Oct-16 15:30:21

Ooh, that is the ONE thing I've thought about doing as my nose is rather unfeminine.

Thanks very much for letting us in on your secret! I'd love to track your progress! (Please advise re pain scale on 1-10)

allegretto Tue 18-Oct-16 14:44:56

Hope it went well, OP!

dailymaillazyjournos Tue 18-Oct-16 16:30:58

Really hope you're doing ok. DD had hers done at 18 and was thrilled and was much more confident and happier.
If there's any way you can get hold of some arnica tablets and get taking them asap, then that might be useful. DD's surgeon recommended she do that and she had far less bruising then she expected.
The first week was painful afterwards but it was so worth it for her.

I'm waiting. I am last on the list today. Aaargg.

I'll report back tomorrow smile

SmeagolsRing Tue 18-Oct-16 16:41:35

I've had mine done OP! Good luck, and PM if you need anything!

JanetStWalker Tue 18-Oct-16 19:04:00

Good luck!

I did it at 19, changed my life. smile

swooosh Tue 18-Oct-16 19:08:42

I've had one and then a septoplasty due to birth defects. Hope it all went well!

mycatstares Tue 18-Oct-16 19:09:11

Hope it went well and you not too uncomfortable!

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Sovain Tue 18-Oct-16 23:05:37

Done. No pain yet. Having to breathe through mouth at the moment until the packing comes out tomorrow. The drugs were ace!

Can't sleep though.

Thank goodness for Kindle (and mnet of course)

SmeagolsRing Wed 19-Oct-16 14:03:17

Congrats, op!
Packing was the worst bit for me - here's hoping your recovery goes smoothly & painlessly flowers

dailymaillazyjournos Wed 19-Oct-16 17:31:09

Sovain - how are you doing today?

I bet you are so excited to see your new nose when the taping comes off. I honestly didn't recognise DD. Her whole face looked entirely different somehow and her other features really stood out. When my Mum, me and dd were in a shop just after her dressings had been removed, my Mum actually walked passed dd as she didn't realise it was her. She really did look that different. It took months to get familiar with the 'new' dd.
It took about a year for everything to finally settle into its permanent shape. Till then she kept sort of changing (I suppose as the swelling in her nose and face was decreasing.) I wasn't prepared for just how much of a difference it would make to her. The best thing was that she finally looked people in the eye when speaking and wasn't conscious about her profile. She started to wear prettier clothes because she felt more feminine. It really did help her confidence masses.

I hope you will be really pleased with yours and that you aren't in too much discomfort. DD said she did feel as if someone had thrown a brick at her forehead and couldn't bear her glasses pressing against the side of her nose so had to wear her contacts all the time till that settled.

They may have given you cocaine during the procedure, this is fairly common! Hence the not being able to sleep grin hope the packing coming out wasn't too horrid.

Sovain Wed 19-Oct-16 18:47:23

Hi.

Yes, it was cocaine. It certainly kept me awake. Pretty tired today so have had a nap or two and hope to sleep tonight.

The packing being taken out was fine actually. Just slithery...

Pain on a scale of one to ten - at the moment a two - and that's only if I try and move my face. On paracetemol only. It's more annoying feeling bunged up and not being able to breathe properly.

That sounds fab for your DD daily. just shows how a nose affects your confidence.

My cast comes off next week so will take pics then.

Exciting!!

swooosh Wed 19-Oct-16 20:20:28

I know that feeling well! You'll probably get quite a runny nose too and itchy from any stitches that are inside. It really helps to sleep as upright as possible. I bought a v pillow for both of my surgeries and it was brilliant.

Just remember you will be very swollen when the cast comes off but should still be able to see good results, it'll also be very yucky and plenty of blackheads!

LaundryQueenHatesIroning Wed 19-Oct-16 21:26:39

How exciting OP! I had mine done three years ago and it's much better than it was. I didn't get any pain afterwards, luckily, but it still feels sensitive now (or maybe I'm just wary of it!) I got a saline nasal spray for babies when I had mine done and that really helped with the congested feeling.

You're lucky you get your splint off after a a week. I had to keep the full thing on for two weeks, all over Xmas! shock

HermioneWeasley Wed 19-Oct-16 21:30:28

The not being able to breathe through my nose after surgery put me off. Glad to hear your surgery went well

Sovain Fri 21-Oct-16 08:49:30

Two and a half days in and feeling much better.

No pain. Been taking paracetemol just in case but only feel pressure when I try and move my face/wrinkle my nose..

The plaster cast feels constrictive, and my nose is full of dried blood (which I'm not supposed to remove) which looks yucky and feels stiff.

Not much in the way of black eyes either. Just a slight bruising on one eyelid and underneath.
