    Hey! So I’m writing this as when I was looking for rhinoplasty experiences there wasn’t many recent posts to go off or ask people for advice.
    So I’m 21 years old, I had a large bulbous tip, a bump on my side profile and larger nostrils then what I would have wanted!😩I’ve wanted a rhinoplasty for years and years but decided to get my breast enlargement first in 2018 with MYA. So that’s why I decided to come back January 2020 to start my rhino journey, however I did visit transform for a consultation also.

    I had my initial consultation on the 16th January and had surgery 10th or March.
    I had the full works, open rhinoplasty with Dr Andrea Giannitrapani.

    Meeting my surgeon was a great experience, he was friendly, enthusiastic on what could be achieved but also realistic too. The consultation did go by pretty quickly and it is a lot of information to take it, however he did ask me if I had any questions and was more than ready to answer them.

    Soo! Surgery day, my admission was 7am, yay! I hate waiting around as I would have worked myself up and wondered for hours. I got to the hospital at 7am, was greeted by amazing staff who took me straight to my own room in the New victoria hospital.
    The rooms are amazing by the way, I had complete privacy and very spacious.
    I had all my usual tests taken, blood pressure, temperature, heart beat. I had a pregnancy test and nicotine test completed also.
    After this the anaesthesiologist came to visit me, talked through my medical history and explained how I would be feeling when being put to sleep, how I would feel when I woke back up etc.
    Then Dr G came to see me, he again took me through the whole process, what could be achieved and what he wanted to do. He took some pre op photos and said see you soon!
    I was already to go.
    Coming round from surgery I felt okay, tired and a bit confused but okay. Again I can not fault any member of the New Victoria hospital team, they really looked after me and all I needed/asked throughout my stay.

    Post op days, going home and that first night I felt fine. Waking up One day post op, now that was a whole different scenario, although I felt fine within myself my whole face/eyes had swollen, my face was bruised and I was in some discomfort.
    After day one, things became much easier and it sailed by.

    And then today! 7days post op. I got my cast off! And I couldn’t be happier, my tip is still quite swollen and I’m looking forward to it going down as then I will be in love with my results but from what I started with, my nose had done a while 360 and I couldn’t recommend my surgeon enough.

    I will post some photos of before and afters, however they still don’t show how much of an improvement has been made.

    Don’t worry about anything and just go for it! If it’s what you want, if it’s what will make you happy, do it now rather than later, I’m so glad I did!

    Sorry my old post wouldn’t allow me to add photos! Hence the new topic! ☺️
