I am nervous, but mostly excited. I am getting my revision tomorrow with Dr. G!!! I will keep you guys updated and possibly post some pics. I have been waiting too long!!! Good luck with everyone's recovery that has just gone through surgery! See ya on the other side!
Congratulations on making it this far! Nervous but mostly excited is a good frame of mind to be in - I really think everyone going into a revision is at least a little nervous as they've been disappointed before. It sounds like you got whatever questions you had in your mind cleared up and are ready to put this behind you once and for all.
What is Dr. G planning on doing / fixing for you?
Please do keep us posted - everyone here will be rooting for you and a smooth recovery! There's a big community of us here who've been down the road before and also just have a fine appreciation of noses and can talk about them in much more detail even after your family and friends have gotten bored of hearing about it. Also everyone here would obviously love your feedback on your experience and how things turn out for you!
Best of luck tomorrow! You're going to a doctor that's recognized by other surgeons as being a national expert, so do your best to relax!
Thank you very much! I made an album of my before pics... and will add as I go through this. My before pics are here http://www.makemeheal.com/pictures/rhin ... rd=newnose He plans on thinning my bridge... derotating the tip... adding rim grafts....lifting the columella... and adding a spreader graft I believe to the bridge because he said I have valve collapse. My profile looks pretty good, but he showed me how he's going to take a couple millimeters off here and there and lower the tip a bit. Oh and the PW is newnose In the frontal view.. I remember someone asking about alar base reduction.. Ive had it.. you cant see any scars!
Best wishes to you as you go for your revision tomorrow. I think you are in good hands with Dr. G. Is he doing your revision closed? I hope you recover quickly. Thanks for keeping us updated as well. It is very helpful for those people looking for primary or revision surgeons! Take care of yourself!
Thanks everyone! Everything went well.. I am very swollen.. and bleeding quite a lot. I had an open revision.. he also did a septoplasty at the last minute.. I had enough cartilage so he didnt have to use my ear! He also fixed one of my nostrils and brought it in more bc they were a little off. I will post pics when i get the cast off next Friday.. Hopefully this medrol will take the swelling down.. I can barely see.
Oh yes I do have some pineapple .. I cant tell if it's working or not.. I had my mom taste it and she said it was really tart, but I can't taste a thing! Yes he made me sign a paper right before I went under for the septoplasty. I am so happy he didn't have to use my ear. Next Friday cant come soon enough. He has my columella scar under the bandage, so I cant put any Bacitracin on it. Do you think it will be visible by the time I go back to work on the 27?
Im a newbie and its taking me a while to have the guts to join this forum. Ive made my first post on your thread because im a big fan of Guyurons work, i just love his aesthetics. Ive only seen two revisions of his so far which look fantastic, im looking forward to seeing your post op photos if thats ok? Im seeking a revision myself.
