Nose Surgery Series

Jessie thinks about her nose surgery expectations and writes: I am hoping that after my surgery, I will have a decrease in the overall size of my nose. I also want my tip to point upwards, not down as it currently does and of course, to have a straight nose in my profile.  I believe that having this surgery will make me a more confident person and will motivate me to be a healthier person.   What I mean by “healthier” is having a better outlook, being more active and just more beautiful all around. I want to take the extra time for me, spend more time getting ready for the day, walk my dog all over the Twin Cities and be more active at the gym. I know feeling better about my nose will motivate me to make the rest of me better, too. It will allow me to be more confidence out in public. I think being more active socially and physically will improve my life.

I have thought a lot about the recovery and I do not think it will be a problem for me. I do not have any children and I have been able to take time away from work to recover. I am also lucky to have family close by and they have volunteered to take my dog for a few days while I recover. I am expecting that I will be somewhat sore for several days after the surgery and expect the obvious swelling and bruising. I think the minor pain from the surgery will be less than the anguish I feel now from the facial appearance I currently have.

Editors Note: Next time Jessie’s story continues with a video interview the day of surgery, then next week clips of her actual surgery.

3 Things To Tell Your Stylist (after having facial cosmetic surgery)

February 24th, 2015

Hair GraphicAt Nipntuck.com our goal is for you to look better naturally. We want you to feel more confident in your skin without looking like you’ve changed your identity! Because we want to give you the most natural results, other people in your life may not realize you’ve had cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons and salon professionals have one goal in common: we want you to look more beautiful. So if you are visiting your stylist (aesthetician, hair guru or makeup artist) for the first time after having facial cosmetic surgery, please consider sharing a little bit of information with them…            

  1. Tell them how you feel. Healing takes time and each person is different in the way they heal. Although you may feel well enough to go back to most activities of daily living just a few days after surgery, your body is still healing and there may be areas of your face and scalp that are still sensitive to the touch. Share this information with your stylist so that she/he may take necessary precautions to keep you safe and comfortable during your treatments.          
  2. Show them your scars. Scars are necessary for surgery but we aim to place scars in areas of your body where they will be hidden by natural skin creases, hair and/or light make-up. The average scar takes six weeks to reach 80% of its maximum strength, so if you have recent scars from facial surgery, please let your stylist know so that she/he may protect healing skin from further stress.
  3. Tell them about changes in sensation. Temporary changes in sensation are common after surgery. These changes may take up to six months to return to normal. During this time you may experience numbness and/or tingling in your face and scalp and you may not be able to carefully judge whether something is too hot or too cold. If you have residual numbness and/or tingling after facial surgery please share this information with your stylist and allow them to protect you from potentially damaging styling tools and products.
