8 Years ago when I was 19 years old I had a Rhinoplasty. My whole childhood growing up I was always self conscious about my nose - but I wanted to get out of high school before I had anything done. I didn't feel like having to deal with people asking me questions. During my year off, before I went to college I had a Rhinoplasty in the Los Angeles area. I was able to get it covered by my insurance because they were fixing a deviated septum. I did not do too much looking around for the best cosmetic doctor because I was naive and figured that they all were well trained and able to do a good job. Plus I didn't think anything good be worse than what I grew up with. Long story short, the surgery was a disaster. The tip of my nose ended up turning out very crooked and one side of the nostrils basically collapsed. I was left with a much worse deviated septum and not feeling so great about myself.
P.S. I was super bruised up after the procedure, it looked like I just battled a lion.
What I did my first 19 years of my life, I have done the last 8 but I am finally ready for a revision rhinoplasty. Wish me luck and I will keep you all updated on my progress!
