I hate my rhinoplasty. Should I risk a second surgery when a professional messed it up the first time?

I hate my rhinoplasty. Should I risk a second surgery when a professional messed it up the first time?

This is a good question. The real question is: why didn't you get the planned result? Possible options include: infection, patient compliance, incomplete communication before surgery, not being patient with the recovery process (it may look better over time), if your results are really 'messy', as well as other possibilities .

So all of these need to be taken into account regarding your next step. If you have a good relationship with your surgeon, that would be the first step. Discuss all of this with your surgeon. Seeking a second opinion with a board certified plastic surgeon, ASPS, member of ASAPS could help put things into perspective.

I have been involved in such a scenario. This patient had a previous rhinoplasty by another doctor and did not want another procedure done. A repeat procedure is more difficult and expensive. I was concerned about his nasal appearance. His nose was crooked, his columella, the central area at the bottom of his nose was too low among his other concerns. After extensive discussion with her prior to her review procedure, which included computer transformation of possible outcomes, we devised a treatment plan.

This is your appearance prior to treatment:

One year after her revision surgery, she is happy with her result:

Therefore, a successful revision nasal surgery is possible.

I hope this helps.

Based on the old photos of Bella (which she never posted, people got them from some of her family's accounts), it's so obvious that she got some work done on her facial features through surgeries, just like other celebrities. to enhance beauty.

In the photo below (2015), she was already 17 or 18 at the time (this was 6 years ago, and now she is 24), this is what she really looked like, she had bags under her eyes, her eyes were uneven , her face was big and round (I'm pretty sure she wasn't fat anymore despite the shape of her face), her nose wasn't even pointed, etc.

she looked so different compared to now, her beauty

she looked so different compared now, her beauty before having a lot of surgeries reminds me of charice pempengco since charice was also a pure blood Filipina like Bella πŸ˜…

1 of a big nose change

2.To make your eye crease higher, you can do it by double eyelid surgeries or blepharoplasty (blepharoplasty is not only for monolides, this is also for people who want to make their eye crease higher) , this can also get rid of bags under the eyes or fat under the eyes

3. Also brow lift / eye lift, I am not quite sure what it is called, but this surgery is used to tighten and lift the area around your eye (you can look it up about this surgery for clearer information), see the Unlike Bella's eyes in the photo below, earlier, her eyes were obviously uneven

4. even lip fillers or lip augmentation (I mean this is a trend in the beauty industry πŸ˜‚)

Speaking of his nose, in these next photos you can see how pointed his nose is, especially at the lower side angles, but his nostrils don't even follow the shape of his nose, instead they go up (since the tip of his nose goes up). upwards as well because it's too pointed), their nostrils still remained at the bottom and they looked around as the direction of them went out

the shape of these nostrils matched his old nose before which was flat and round so basically that bridge and tip of his nose are fake, I mean it was done or improved through surgeries

and compared to your old photos, your nose at the moment is not like this before, you probably also underwent some facelifts or other procedure to tighten the shape of your face.

I mean this is not new for some celebrities hahaha like in their home country in the Philippines doctors can perform HIFU on those people who wanted smaller faces and other procedures.

Even some celebrities in the Philippines, some of their features were made through surgeries, some of them had a flat round nose before as beautiful (I will not name any, but you can look it up)

As you can see, Bella is a pure Filipina but she was adopted. She used to have that typical Filipino nose that is flat, round, or wide, (I know not all Filipinos have this type of nose, but in Bella's case, she was born with this type of nose, I mean this was her nose ”. before")

People say "oh, his nose just grew, he hit puberty" hahaha, once you have that kind of nose, it is very impossible for it to become too pointed, like the noses of white people, he moved to the US Sooooo ...

People also say "oh she was fat before, lost some weight" firstly, the nose is not made up of fat cells, the nose is defined by bone or cartilage, that cannot be changed naturally, not even the nose massage / yoga does not work, you need surgeries for that as it involves the bone, that's why we have rhinoplasty, non-surgical nose lift and other procedures just to improve the nose

Lol, her nose got thin here, she looks suspicious, she even fixed her eyebrows and lashes, but again there is nothing wrong with that.

Bigger lips πŸ€”

Surgeries are not a bad thing I guess, she had a difficult childhood and was bullied before too :)

Since I was 8 years old, I have not liked my nose. To the point that it became an obsession.

One day a little boy who was my fellow 'friend' told me that he had a big nose, but he had a cold, so I thought it was all the snot. But he was wrong.

When I was 10-11 years old, I started using products sold in China that promised to make my nose tighter and smaller. These were called 'nose up' and they were supposed to brighten my nose by breaking it and causing my skin to 'practice' being wrinkled. This was $ 4 and 3 weeks of waiting, my mom caught me and asked why and my reasoning, I explained that she wanted my nose smaller.

Since I was 8 years old, I have not liked my nose. To the point that it became an obsession.

When I was 10-11 years old, I started using products sold in China that promised to make my nose tighter and smaller. These were called 'nose up' and they were supposed to brighten my nose by breaking it and causing my skin to 'practice' being wrinkled. This was $ 4 and 3 weeks of waiting, my mom caught me and asked why and my reasoning, I explained that she wanted my nose smaller. We were very serious about it. I expressed that I never liked my nose and that the makeup made me feel even less attractive and worse. We discussed the possibility of a rhinoplasty once I graduated from high school if I still wanted it, and I agreed. My mother had also had a rhinoplasty and had a very pretty nose; many of my relatives had pretty noses, but I wouldn't say they were conventionally attractive,

I had just finished my program and graduated from university. With the big jump between now and coming back to get my PA license, I knew it was time to do it. I've been around women I've admired and envied for years in college, I've also had countless flings and boyfriends / girlfriends, but my confidence was still low.

When the time came, I sought out a plastic surgeon and attended with my mother.

The process was very introductory. At my first meeting, we talked about my nose, A LOT. It was something I had avoided talking about or even showing from all angles, and when it came down to it, it was a lot of close-up examinations (photos of my nose alone) and full shots of the face (not the side or the head tilted as if 'shrinking' my nose).

But what I learned from him was that my bones were very thick beyond my internal corneas, and my nose had curved inward.

The nose tricks and tricks I tried would never have worked, because it had some bone structure. He had a good internal nose, but a lot of cartilage.

I have spent months and months at rest to find a nose that I like. I found the nose woman and took pictures of her from all angles. She is from a small band in New York, but we had such similar facial features that I felt like it was what I had the potential to show off.

I wanted my appointment as soon as possible; With the promise of a new nose, he longed for her that much more.

The following week, I received instructions for the preparation of the surgery: no NSAIDs or aspirin, no herbal medications, wash my face with a specific cleanser, etc. The following week was my surgery.

The surgery was very exciting and I couldn't sleep the night before.

What was actually 5 hours felt like 45 minutes under anesthesia. Afterwards I was very unbalanced and too tired to eat or do much.

Through the pain and congestion, all the diligence of cleaning my nose, it paid off. The struggles and responsibilities that came two weeks after the rhinoplasty were so tedious and upsetting.

Lots of gauze and very careful not to bend over.

But when I took off the cast, when I took off the compression tape, I felt changed. I believe in rebirth after life, but having this rebirth during life itself was surreal. I LIKE to look at myself in the mirror. I LIKE to take photos looking directly at the camera. I LOVE my face now.

It has changed my life in the sense that I feel more attractive. I don't need makeup, I don't need anything, my face is perfectly proportioned and I feel like I can smile at strangers. It has been a life change in the sense that I notice more attention. I notice that people look at me more often and that I don't feel like I'm 'missing' at all.

After rhinoplasty, I had been extremely isolated ever since I stayed in a hotel away from home for fear of judgment. What people don't tell you is that you will get a backlash from those who love you more than anyone else. I didn't want that, my mother had that. I didn't want to give anyone a chance to judge me without seeing the end result, just the bloody gauze and nasal tubes. So I hesitated.

I put a mask over my mouth and pretended I had a cold, my congestion made it believable, but I had compression tape on my nose that peeked through the mask. Then some realized.

My boyfriend initially treated me differently, but has since gotten used to it. My mother is so happy to see me radiant and feeling so full of life, it is unreal how happy I am. No one knows for sure, but they know there is something different about my face.

The stigma attached to admitting the procedure was difficult for me to share with others. My boyfriend was upset thinking it would be something completely different or it wouldn't look good, and others who knew about my struggles were happy for me.

I'm not saying that everyone should do it, but no one should feel that it is exclusive to celebrities or the extremely wealthy. Anything you want can be changed: do a lot of research with your doctors and don't go abroad looking for a cheaper alternative because you can't afford someone of good repute; there are plans and payment options. BE SAVE! And research reviews and examples of their work.

I was fortunate to have had a wonderful surgeon and team who made me feel so safe throughout the entire process.

I firmly believe that it has changed my life, and if I wasn't in a relationship right now, considering the attention I get in public, it would certainly be a huge plus. Above all, confidence is the best asset and having the change, I think I am more confident in the dating scenes.

No, your personality did not change. Your confidence level grew because you became a person with a nose, not an ugly nose with an attached person. If you have problems and can fix them, why not? It is good that plastic surgery is now more affordable and accessible. I don't think I'm destroying the fabric of society!

People had to "learn to live" with all kinds of deformities in the past, and it was supposed to be character building! Well BS to that, if it bothers you, fix it. Who else will keep these highly skilled plastic surgeons busy? Don't tell people immediately

Rather, that depends on why you are having it. If the reason is medical, and your doctor has recommended a surgical adjustment to your nasal passages or construction, or if you have to remove a growth of some kind, then of course it will be worth it.

If your need is basically cosmetic, then you need to think about it carefully. If your nose is regularly blocked or obstructs your vision, or if your appearance frightens children, the decision on the value of the operation is up to you. Ask yourself if you really want to go back to your workplace, or your children, with a stent in one nostril,

Ask yourself if you really want to go back to your workplace, or your children, with a stent in one nostril and a tampon firmly in the other.

Look at the negatives: all surgery carries a small risk of infection. The postoperative period can involve a lot of pain, in this case. You may be left with visible scars, and if you live in the US, you may also be left with an empty bank account.

Look at it this way: you've come so far in life with the nose you were born with. What do your friends think? Do you have a personal (social) problem with your appearance?

I am afraid it is your decision, but if your doctor is not involved, I would be inclined to advise against it. Anyway, whatever you decide, good luck.

I'm sorry I had a nose job from a plastic surgeon. I wish I hadn't had one or had gone to an ear, nose, and throat doctor. An otolaryngologist would be more concerned with the structure and that I could breathe properly. I may eventually get my nose redone, as I can't breathe at night without afrin. No one can really predict how it will heal, so the argument of going to a plastic versus an ENT doctor doesn't really pass the smell test. They can use all computer generated models. But you will heal the way you heal. They also don't know how much scar tissue you will get in and out of your nose.

But you will heal the way you heal. They also don't know how much scar tissue you will get in and out of your nose. Today my nose is not only crooked but it doesn't work either. You will heal the way you heal. That includes your tendency to leave scars and even if it will be "perfect" or not. So again, I never would. I really needed a self-confidence course. I don't think it hurt the careers of Sylvester Stallone, Owen Wilson or Barbara Streisand or Cher, or Amal Clooney or Meryl Streep. Do I need to continue? I'd even say it helped some of their careers. Actually, Barbara Streisand could be ordinary with her slightly nasal voice and a small nose. His voice probably would have been different as well. Perhaps she literally hadn't made it at all. Your nose is your signature. Confidence is attractive. Small noses are common. In fact, they are so common that when I went to college in the 90's we were able to identify who made the nose. There were two common noses at American University. Dr. Gelb was unbelievably small and Dr. Diamond's had a distinctive not very attractive pinch and a pronounced bottom. Here is a fun article about it.

Personally, I recommend coming back for more surgeries. And if that surgery doesn't result in higher self-esteem, then get another one. And other. And another until you finally get the nose you were looking for. It really worked for Michael Jackson.

In general, I would recommend that people try to be satisfied with the schnoz they were born with, but that ship has sailed for you. So he could also go full blast into Courtney Cox territory and turn her face into an inhuman mask of scar tissue.

Or you could just cut your losses and try to be happy with what you've done.

Just remember that when you look in the mirror, you are not seeing what other people see when they look at your face. Not only is it a "mirror image" of your face, but the image you see is tainted with your own expectations and prejudices.

Anyone else would look at you and say, β€œOh look. He's another human being. "You look at yourself and think," Well that's not right! "Because you have an unrealistic image of what your face" should "look like. That unrealistic image exists in one place and only in a place: YOUR MIND.

That is not entirely true, but there are certain Caucasian female nasal proportions that are considered "ideal." We learn these ratios in our training, but unfortunately, many of us apply a "cookie cutter" approach to rhinoplasty that, for example, can "feminize" a male nose or give an "ethnic" (Hispanic, Middle Eastern) nose. , black). a decidedly western Caucasian aesthetic.

Like any other cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasty is not noticeable if it is not done excessively, if the surgeon is experienced, and if the scars have healed well.

The recovery period for rhinoplasty differs depending on the type (hump reduction, bridge of the nose augmentation, tip plasty, wing reduction, etc.); however, in general, if the surgery was done correctly and without complications, the major swelling will go away in 2 to 3 weeks. mild swelling will last 3-6 months and will eventually disappear, and the scars will disappear in 3 months, so after this period of time, people will not be able to notice that a

، It's not the size change !! There is something, only in the first month the whole nose is swollen and the patient is happy with it, but after a few months the swelling of some parts of the nose that have a thin skin like the upper part, would disappear but the swelling of the tip that has thick skin, so the patient believes that this mismatch is the growth of the tip. This difference in the thickness of the skin between the tip and the part of the ear is a big problem.

Septum - Rhinoplasty is the treatment of choice for curved noses, it is the most difficult rhinoplasty since it involves correction of the functional and aesthetic aspects of the nose, you need to find a surgeon who can take care of the aesthetic and functional aspects, to respond your question is very effective if done correctly, on the downside the max number of revision cases we get is after rhinoplasty for crooked nose
