^^just for all of the residual swelling to go down. i think you are pretty good to go after a couple weeks.
Yes, I should have clarified. The swelling goes down and it's your new nose, however some noses do need to relax and find themselves. I think the same thing of the facelifts I've seen. A good facelift looks best after six months.
I've had my nose job 15 months ago and there is still some swelling left. It hardly takes only 6 months.
dd - didn't you also want to do something to your teeth/mouth or am i misremembering?
Yes, I want to get my lip lowered, my lip line is not correctly placed inside my mouth. Every dentist I go to says it's incorrectly attached to my mouth and I have been to 2 consultations so far to oral surgeons, I am going to another one in January. My orthodontist (who I visit still) talked with me about it and said he would do the surgery if he were me, unfortuantely he doesn't do anything like that.
I've wanted to fix the tip of my nose since I was 13 years old. I thought I would get over it, but I never had. I try not to smile wide because it makes the tip of my nose looks funky and it makes my eyes look so tiny because the tip is large for my face. It looks like a clown/rudolph nose because it looks like a ball on the end of my nose. The rest of my nose looks fine though, I dont' have a bump or need any bridge work. I should find a google picture to show it to you!
i made it through and will get the packing and splint off on monday. my nose is EXTREMELY swollen - well, at least the tip is because that's all i can see right now. i have some bruising under my eyes and my face is a little swollen but other than that, it hasn't been bad.
^ Wow, glad everything went okay and you are doing alright. Let us know how it looks on Monday, congrats!
If you are gutsy enough, post before and after pics. Just put your nose if you want.
I so want a nose job but I'm terrified about being unhappy with the results or having complications during surgery; anesthesia and revisions are a scary thought... I'd barely have money to afford a primary...
Not to mention how embarrassing it would be for me to explain/justify a nose job considering my family is extremely conservative over such 'vanities'. *sigh*
I'm a motherfucker and sell candles
I want a nose job. It seems everyone is getting them! I really don't know how I'd manage to save up the £4,000 but I really, really want one. How is everyone doing post-surgery? Did you get the results you wanted?

Has anyone here had a revision rhinoplasty?
I had a rhinoplasty with septoplasty 10 months ago to improve my breathing and the appearance of my nose. My breathing has only slightly improved because one nostril is still quite obstructed by my septum, the appearance of my nose has improved so much though. It was a great choice to get done and well worth it. I'm looking at having a revision though to fix the tip which is slightly assymetrical. The columella isn't quite in the centre and the tip is a bit assymetric front on. I love my NJ but this one thing makes me avoid front on photos still. If anyone had this kind of thing fixed or has had a revision NJ, your advice and experiences would be great to hear!
And Levitt, if you're still here, post-op is ROUGH. I had my splints and everything removed 8 days post-op and when he handed me a hand mirror and I saw myself I said nothing and handed it back to him, I looked nothing like myself and shockingly awful. It's best not to look IMO because what you see then will not be what you see even in a few days time. For a week after that I looked like one of the blue things from Avatar, my nose was wide and kind of upturned a bit and flat like a lion. About 7-10 days after having the bandages removed I went out for the first time with some friends and looked quite good, so the swelling goes down dramatically at first. Most of my swelling was gone in 4-6 weeks which I believe is quite fast. The last little bit of swelling has stubbornly remained since then though but nobody else notices it. Sometimes my nose swells up randomly for anywhere from 10 minutes to a day, it just looks a little bigger and less defined to me.
