DES and hump rhino at Wannabe! (15 days post op) in KOREAN PLASTIC SURGERY (NEW! ACTIVE FORUM) Posted September 2, 2020 @ChubbyBun HEY GIRL!! Thank you so much!! I know, it's really crazy how time flies!! And I also suspect that it is leftover swelling since the asymmetry is pretty slight! Thank you for your kind comments, I hope you're doing well!!@Curiousbbops Thank you so much!! Yeah I'm very happy how natural my face looks! I forget often that I had surgery at all hahaha! No one questions me on it either! A bonus imo haha! ----- 6th month update! SOOO... technically I can wear sunglasses now?? I am a little afraid still though and gonna try to delay this as much as possible but summer is pretty much over already and the virus is STILL a thing (holy moly) so I don't know when my next opportunity will be next anyways... but yeah! That's about that! Well it looks a lot straighter in today's update because I am slightly bloated. (I took this roughly about 2 hours after eating something spicy) I think it's interesting how much my face can bloat and change how my nose appears. I did a lot more research in this month's time and seeing other cases of crooked noses post rhino (curiously, they are also all hump-removal type rhinoplasties with an osteotomy), and just knowing that the situation with my nose is very slight in asymmetry in comparison to some of the cases I've seen puts me at a bit of ease. A lot of the advice that was given was to just wait a full year as I had mentioned in my previous post so I am basically just gonna sit tight. I'm carefully monitoring how the "bump" on my nose bridge is behaving, and it is definitely gotten a lot more smooth now though I can still feel it is still there. Again, this is the cartilage part I am talking about, and it is more felt than seen. In fact, this month's photo makes it look like the bump was never there, but again, I think the bloat caused a bit of it. I just didn't wanna delay this month's update any more since I was late again hahaha. Oh I forgot to mention; I realized sometime this month that I have the slightest little scar/skin tag thingy on my eyelid line. It's probably due to how I didn't take as much care or notice to my eyelids when they were recovering, but I just took some tweezers and pulled the little bugger off and while it's not completely flat at least the loose skin part is gone? Sorry for the TMI hahahahaha! No blood was shed! Just a bit of minor OCD relief! My double eyelids are still going strong. I rubbed my eyes a ton too, though I try to keep it close to my lashline for the rubbing. I try not to make a habit of it, since you never know and it causes wrinkles hahah. But I remember someone told me I could never rub my eyes again after getting my eyes done or else I'll lose my double eyelids, but I don't think that's the case for me here. Even if I tilt my eyes slightly, I can see a very visible crease form. (Not in the sense that it's a scar, but more like my skin memorized where to crease my skin?) It may loosen as I age, but they are pretty strong for now. Anyways, gratz to me for being somewhat consistent in posting! Personally I didn't think I would be able to. I hope I can bring some more insight to those who are curious and wanting the surgery! I don't particularly consider myself to have any form of body dysmorphia or anything so maybe it helps to hear from someone like me I dunno hahah. I have to admit, even amidst all these unknowns, I still quite like my new nose. Every time I catch a glimpse of my nose in its profile as I turn away from a mirror or something, I just keep thinking just how nice I look. My boyfriend took candid photos of me and they actually looked nice? I used to hate them so much because it would usually capture my hooked nose but now I look more... I dunno, normal? Youthful? Not like one of those "looks old yet young" type faces? Hahahaha! So my next planned update is on March 5th, which would mark 1 year of my plastic surgeries hahah! The reason why I am spacing this one out for 6 months instead of monthly updates is because there is very very little visible progression I think from this period and beyond. Even for the last few months, I don't think I really seen many changes? I think in 1 year maybe there will be more to compare with. So I will see you guys in March 5th!
