The Final Job, A Cautionary Tale Part Three



Can you believe the numerous celebs who have gone under the knife? I don't care what anyone says, you don't lose baby fat from a nose. Check out Jessica Biel in the top left photo!

Blake Lively must have gone to a great plastic surgeon as she is absolutely stunning now. Angelina, as beautiful as she is, had a little help from the surgeons and supermodel Gisele
had her nose thinned out a bit too.


When I went in for my first rhinoplasty, I expected to remove the bandages and have the straight little nose I had always dreamed of. Imagine my dread when those bandages came off and I looked the same, but swollen. What did that doctor do, I wondered. The surgery was a cinch, I wasn’t under for very long and when I opened my eyes, I felt alert and awake. Enough to snack on cookies, drink juice , crack a few jokes and talk.

Arriving back at my apartment, a friend came over and we hung out, the whole thing was really was not a big deal. Of course it wasn’t, the doctor didn’t do much! After my check-up, maybe a month or so later, I pointed out the obvious, my nose still had the bump that I wanted gone (a few people in my life had made comments about me looking like Barbra Streisand) plus it looked the same as before. “No Problem,” he replied, “We can go in, rasp it down a little.”


This might be where all the issues began. When my nose healed, it had a dip in it- imagine a valley in the bridge of a nose. The columella (that piece between the nostrils) hung low. It was a mess. I was deeply unhappy. And that unsatisfied, low self esteem, ugly duckling feeling followed me through my wedding and move to California, new jobs and vacations, relocating back to New Jersey and having my son. Imagine being so horrified at your nose that you don't want to pose for wedding pictures or have photos taken of you holding your newborn baby. Yeah, there were pictures of course but rare is the one where I'm smiling into the camera.

As I wrote before, I was anxious to find a doctor who could fix my nose. And I did, however he was not a plastic surgeon. Just an Ear, Nose and Throat doc who did a rotation or two in plastics.
When my son was just a little tiny baby, I underwent a horrible four hour surgery to correct my deformed nose. Was it an improvement? Well, clearly I would not be here right now, the night before my surgery, writing about it if it had all gone swimmingly.

When I get an email from an old friend or reconnect with someone via Facebook who I went to school with, I hear the comment, "You look just like you did n highschool!" and that is not such a compliment if I was considered the ugliest girl in the class. maybe in the state of New Jersey! For years and years the kids-mostly boys, one in particular- teased me without mercy. I was tall and skinny and flat chested, I had braces and a headgear (which I wore to school), pale eyes and skin. I wonder if I had ignored those boys and had more self esteem if I would have gone in for the first surgery at all?

As I sit here, twelve hours away from my reconstructive plastic surgery adventure, yes, I’m nervous. But I feel comfortable with the double board certified doctors who will be performing the surgery. They’ve done this before. They know what they’re doing. I guess in a way, I do too. I just remain hopeful for a different outcome this time around.

Hey there! I found your blog via a Twitter search on plastic surgery. I am working on a story for a local alternative weekly paper (in Northeast PA)- interviewed three great docs, but am unable to find anyone to speak locally- my last two interviews fell through. Thought you may be interested in offering a quote or two about your experience. Your name can be withheld if you'd like, or if you want to use your name, I can promote your blog. I know it's last minute- my story is due in the AM, but if you could help, just let me know. Hope everything turned out well and that you are happy with the results!
