Nose Surgery Series: Jessie’s Final Thoughts

May 19th, 2015

Nose Surgery Series Jessie AfterFinal thoughts about my surgery results, Jessie writes: In only two weeks after my surgery, I no longer have any visible bruising or markings. I really enjoy my co-workers telling me how good my nose looks and how amazed they are that I have healed so fast. Being that I am around people from work a lot, they have also told me it how impressive it is that I have not been in much pain.

This weekend I attended a friend’s 30th  birthday and saw many people that I had not seen in a while. Wow, did people notice! All of my friends think it looks great, but they are also happy to see that it has not changed my entire face. It is still my nose, just improved and much hotter! I enjoyed taking pictures with my friends now and I had to get the pictures developed right away, so I could compare old pictures to new. I really think my side profile looks much nicer. For the first time, I can stand at the end for a few pictures and that is something new for me. I always used to request the center picture spot, otherwise the picture would never turn out, as my nose had a flatten tip in profile.

My family is also very impressed with how fast the healing process has been for me. They have been very supportive.  I think it touched me the most when my eighty-five year old grandma was supportive of the surgery and even sent me a get-well card. I thought her generation was not as accepting of plastic surgery and I was a little surprised at her positive reaction. Grandma even asked me when I was going to come up and visit. That made my day!  Everyone thinks my nose looks great and they are overjoyed to see the happiness it has brought to me.

 

So, in closing, I am very happy with the results. My nose does get a little peeling after I shower, so I have to apply lotion,  not really a big deal. It almost reminds me of feet that have been in the bathtub too long and I admit that I have been known to take really long showers. The peeling is decreasing as each day goes by and again it is not really noticeable and a little lotion takes care of it. I do also want to suggest plain  saline nasal spray to anyone under going nose surgery. You can not pick or blow you nose for three weeks, and the nasal spray has helped me with my breathing especially at night.

Thank you for sharing my adventure with me.   It has been a great experience and I hope my blog is helpful to anyone considering having surgery to change their nose.

Editors Note: We want to sincerely thank Jessie for allowing us follow her journey of having nose surgery and graciously sharing her surgery videos and reflections about the positive impact it has had in her life.

Nose Job Patient Diary: Jessie

April 21st, 2015

For the next few weeks we will be following the story of Jessie, our patient that went through the process of considering and ultimately deciding to have a rhinoplasty or “nose job.” She has graciously agreed to  record her thoughts about her experience. Follow her story and watch her surgery videos as this series unfolds. Meet Jessie:

Hi, my name is Jessie and I have chosen to contribute to Dr. Bashioum’s Blog about my rhinoplasty surgery, because I want others to understand how the process works from a real person, not from a reality television show. I have researched the procedure online and I have been finding a lot of conflicting information, which has left me confused and a little nervous about undergoing the procedure. My hope in doing this blog is to allow potential patients to have a real patient perspective about the procedure, the recovery, and the end result and hopefully the great changes this brings to my life.

I have found that by revealing my up and coming surgery to others, it has caused various reactions.     People tell me I am going to look like I got into fight, or say the surgeon is going to take a hammer to my nose and beat on me. Yikes! Others say this surgery is going to change my looks and no one is going to recognize me. Some people tell me to go ahead with the surgery, while others say it is a waste of money and vain of me to go through with the procedure. Thank goodness that in the end, I am only doing this surgery for me.

Please check back to follow my story.
