    I just saw this thread Natty and thought i would reply I'm going to sound like Michael Jackson though as I've had my nose operated on three times! Lol I had a septorhinoplasty as I brokebit when j was younger and it damaged the inside so much that it looked funny on the outside too. The first time I was 14 (? I think) and the dr made a mess of it. He fixed it when I was 17.5 after I kept hassling him as he did such s bad job initially! The third time was when I had my boob job at 20 and i mentioned to the plastic surgeon that I'd had my nose done twice before but still had sinus problems and so he did it for me whilst I was under

    The recovery for me has been fine all three times. I mean it's not pleasant but I think that's to be expected. I don't remember pain as such, more of an uncomfortableness.

    Oh and my eldest sister had a nose job as hers was quite large and it wasn't until they were in there they realized it was very badly broken! She had a full on rhinoplasty with a chisel and is happy with it. Her recovery wasn't as easy as mine but she was good within a few days.

    If you have any questions pm me or fb and I shall tell you more

    Was it scary being under the twilight sedation? Were you aware of what was happening?

    I've had it done, my nose was quite large and had a huge bump in the middle of it, and yes, i can say it really really hurt (not meaning to scare you) I had to sit up all night (i had to stay overnight in hospital) cos all the blood was going down the back of my throat, it ended up clotting on the roof of my mouth, i could feel it with my tongue, YUCK... i did have the padding up my nostrils, they were the worst , as i felt as if i'd suffocate. i had a few panic attacks that night, and no it's not like blocking your nose with your fingers, it's a different feeling, cos these pads go right up your nasal passage... my eyes kept on weeping, probably cos of the trauma, i felt dizzy, had black eyes, and even part of my cheek was bruised, then they took the pads out, and yes it hurt, but the worst thing i could probably say is the pain was unbelievable, in my nose/head the whole time, i felt like í'd had my face bashed in with a baseball bat.. couldn't eat properly at all, my whole row of teeth felt sensative too.. on the plus side, i lost about 4kgs!!

    they took the cast off a few days later and i just couldn't stop looking at my new nose, lol. i LOVED it.. that was 3 years ago now, and my nose is super sensative, it was numb for over a year and a half, and even if i knock it slightly i can feel it alot more than i used to..

    I would do it again in a heartbeat tho, it was super worth it , i never imagined i'd be this happy and love it so much. (i had issues with the old one, i got teased all my life cos of it.. ) so i'd say if you do it, which you obviously will, just be prepared to be in pain for a bit.. good luck!

    It wasn't painful at all!!!! Not even the slightest, and I had quite a lot of work done on mine. They had to break it and tried resetting it a few times. It kept going to the left so it took a lot of work for them to get it straight lol I guess my nose was as stubborn as me. I also had a deviated septum that they fixed.
    I felt nauseous when I woke up so they gave me a pill to stop that but I was so surprised because there was no pain.
    The worst part of surgery for me? Taking the packing out of my nose. It didn't hurt but boy was it uncomfortable! I felt like I had giant tampons up my nose to the point they were touching my brain lol Those things are big!

    It's uncomfortable. It's like having a cold but you're not allowed to blow your nose. It's frustrating.
    Just do your research when looking for a surgeon and don't let prices turn you off.

    Like I said, the worst part of the surgery was taking the packing out. It didn't hurt but it felt like the nurse was pulling my brain through my nose. BUT it took 3 seconds for the packing to come out and it's a relief. Your nose feels lighter in a way.
    Watching rhinoplasty diaries on YouTube helped me relax = )
    If any of you ever feel that you are well and truly ready, ask me anything. I'm happy to answer all your questions.
