Nose Job Update



This is how I looked after my surgery. I did not expect my eyes to be swollen and discolored like they were! In fact, the photo is disturbing to me on so many levels. My nose is so swollen, eyes are beyond puffy and the color of the bruising went from yellow to red to purple in the span of six days.
I wanted to post this to show what post-surgery looks like. We see these glamorous stars and *know* they had plastic surgery. Well folks, this is what it looks like after the surgery. For real.

Before and after.
To say I'm pleased with my profile is an understatement. It's going to shrink even more once they swelling goes down. The process of healing is a long one and I've read from other peoples experiences that it takes a good four months for the swelling to go down! A year for to see what the nose will look like forever. I can see where the nose will tighten up a bit and look more refined which is what I wanted.

You can see where the doctors cut under my nose to open it up in order to perform the surgery. I'm morbidly curious about what the surgery itself looks like!

Looks like you got a great result.

I think you look absolutely amazing! Please take no offense to this, but it has taken years off of your "before" shot. I'm glad it went so well for you. :)

Big Congrats for going after what you wanted, what you needed to feel whole!

I put off having a hysterectomy for 10 years because of blah, blah, blah from other people. After I had it done, I wish I had it done sooner. I went through the same thing for the bags under my eyes. I would look at myself in the mirror and hate those bags. I finally had them taken care of and could kick myself for waiting all those years!

You look beautiful. You looked good before but it did take some years off. Good for YOU! You really do have to take care of you first.

gaaasssp!! your nose is FAB!
I had a nosejob myself, in March of this year actually. They shaved the bump I had, though I now have a smaller one that has come up in its place. My profile is still so much better, so I understand how every millimeter counts. Seriously, your doctor did an amazing job on your bridge and on the tip of your nose and you look fantastic :)

Cindy! You look great before and after! I'm really thrilled though that you're pleased w/the results and that there will be no more surgery. I have a story similar to you - I'll have to share sometime. I really didn't think anything could be done w/mine, but your story gave me new hope. However, I am holding off - might not do it at all because I have a million other health issues going on.
I'm SO glad it was successful for you. I hope your husband is happy now..perhaps seeing how pleased you are will bring him around.
xoxo

Yuki: I can relate to you.. I needed a serious back surgery very badly. I was born w/spina bifada, had spondylolisthesis..2 herniated discs, etc etc and was in pain every single moment..and I STILL had people telling me "DON'T DO IT! Don't have back surgery!! You'll never be the same again!" Well, I had it and they were right. I wasn't the same. I was better. :)

We all have to follow our own instincts. It's good to take in information and make an informed decision, but ultimately we know what we can and cannot live with.

Cindy! It looks fantastic, I'm so happy for you! You deserve this! I have to say, after clicking on the pics to view a larger version, your skin looks really good up close! :)

I wondered the same thing about surgery I had, and my boyfriend's recent surgery too! I wouldn't have minded watching.

Why get a nose job? Not proud of your heritage?

The result was great and you look more beautiful that the previous photo you have shown to us. It seems rhinoplasty did a great job on you girl. OMG, I wanted to try that one also.

I just had my eyes done, along with a brow lift. I wonder what all the eyelid skin they cut off looked like. I wish the plastic surgeon had a video camera on top of his head, so I could watch the entire surgery. Of course, being a nurse, I'm more curious than grossed out.
Oh yeah, the results are great. Totally worth the down time.

Thanks for the updates, Cindy! I must say that you have a beautiful profile. Your nose looked more prominent and it didn't look like you really have undergone a surgery! It must took you lots of courage to go under the knife. Anyway, it's good to see that you finally got the result that you desired.
