Re: Nostril change?

Huh. I didn't know that! It's been 6 weeks now and my nostrils still look different... pretty sure my septum has been deviated, and it's not just swelling. But we'll see; I'm not going to rush into anything... and maybe it's just uneven swelling. I can dream.

And if so, did it eventually go back to normal (same shape, at least, if not how they were before) or did they stay that way? I'm only 14 days out from surgery mysel...

Re: June/ july 2018 surgery buddies

Hello! I had my surgery on June 12th (upper & lower... no genioplasty as the surgeon decided that would have been 'too much'). Still quite swollen, but my face no longer feels like a pressure cooker! I'm assuming that means the swelling is going down... though it seems slow to me. But it hasn't even...
