I think you asked about this upthread - the breaking of nasal bones really is no big deal. I had mine broken and I swear the bridge of my nose was completely pain-free right from the start. I had swelling and bruising around my eyes that was sore, but the bridge itself - even with the bone being broken - wasn't sore at all. You want to be careful with it though, don't get hit in the face or anything. Virtually all the tenderness was/is in my tip. Good luck!

Tati, thanks for the update!
I've heard about the level of care that's needed as the nose job is "setting" for the year after. One woman said she treated it like glass. I've also heard of the tip and bridge shifting on their own, which scares me, but I guess that's the risk of wanting to take on this improvement.
It sounds like you had a great experience and result and also like you were back to work quickly?
I wonder with both of you, did you tell folks like coworkers or fellow students what you were doing? I ask because I wonder if people were able to tell what looked better about you.
^You will get hit on the nose MANY times after the surgery, I promise you lol. It's nothing unless you get such a strong punch that you break the nose = unlikely.
How does it feel to be able to breath properly again after a long time?
I never had problems with my nose, but when I was younger I had to wear permanent braces for around 3 years. When I finally removed them it felt so weird! It was good, of course, but I was so accustomed to my braces, that felt like something was missing.
(I know that a deviated sectum is far worse than braces, but mine were quite painful, actually).
I actually think having braces sucks even more than deviated septum, having both myself. lol. You can solve the septum issue with one surgery - but with braces it takes months to years - and it looks bad and bugs the shit out of you, even after you're already used to them.
And it felt - weird. Yeah, like something was missing and you need to get used to it.
