to anybody going through the nose job tag considering/prior to getting it done, here’s what you need to know-

  • this is your decision, not anyone else’s. if your family or friends try to make you feel bad for doing it, then that’s their problem, not yours. if you can’t love yourself fully then do whatever you can to get there
  • the surgery’s easy. you can ask for a calming medicine before and they might give you something. even if they don’t, you’ll be knocked out before you can even say it isn’t working and then it’ll be over.
  • you might feel a little queasy after, but they will take care of you and you’ll go home and sleep for hours
  • please please please have someone to watch after you for the first little while, because it’s hard to get your shit together, especially the first day or two
  • within a week or two you should be fine to go back to school/work and you can use a little makeup to cover up the black eyes, but there will be a small red scar under your nose and a little crusted blood/snot
  • clean your scar or anything gross stuff with a wet q-tip and for the love of god please do not poke inside your nose (it’s not dangerous, just stings))
  • it kinda feels like you just hit your nose after, but it’s manageable tbh
  • i got hit w/ a broomstick and was singing in a musical nearly right after mine. you’ll be fine.
  • the constant congestion is the worst part. you’ll have to retrain yourself to breathe after and it gets really annoying- imagine a constant stuff nose but with snot still coming out
  • the snot sucks too, but DO NOT blow your nose for a few weeks after
  • it’s been 6 months after and i still can’t feel the tip of my nose so don’t worry about it
  • taking the packing out feels like pulling a really deep, long booger out of your nose- it’s uncomfortable and kinda gross but doesn’t hurt
  • taking the stitches out stings quite a bit, but it’s not the worst part. there are usually only 4-6 and you’ll want to check after that they got them all
  • do not go to anyone you feel uncomfortable with
  • check reviews on your surgeons
  • please make sure this isn’t an impulse thing- i was bullied for years and years because of my nose and would cry when i looked in a mirror because i hated it. it’s a serious, serious thing
  • people will stay dumb shit after like “but I loved your nose, it was so ethnic!!!” and you just gotta be like w/e. it was your decision and you don’t need to feel shamed for a low self-confidence
  • they may also say that you’re a spoiled, shallow brat, but fuck that. it’s just wrong and if you let that get to you, then send me a message and i will talk you right out of that
  • please invest in some cheap button ups/flannels from goodwill
  • tbh you’ll probably get blood/food all over your shirts
  • get a netflix or some good movies to watch on your computer. i’d bet you probably won’t be leaving your bed
  • it’s going to bruise n swell- ice won’t help anything other than your eyes
  • don’t use nose strips until 3 months after
  • the healing probably won’t be complete until a year or two after, but will look decent within 2 weeks to a month
  • if you need a revision surgery, then oh well. i won’t know for another 6 months, but it’ll be fine.
  • don’t wear glasses for a while unless you can stop them from touching your nose
  • a lot of people won’t even notice anything’s different, but if you’re really scared of that, change your hair right before and people will just notice that
  • i find “deviated nasal septum” to be a good excuse for getting it done
  • you won’t be able to move your top lip for a long time so be ready for sultry selfies
  • you might feel sick or horrible when you first get the cast off because it’ll look puffy and kinda gross, but it gets better. i swear.
  • do not expect a perfect ski slope nose. that’s near impossible. you can only change it so much, so keep your expectations realistic
  • the soreness after isn’t that bad, just a little annoying, but you get medicine
  • don’t read the horror stories- they rarely happen!!! you’re probably going to look 10/10 perfect
  • it’s normal to be nervous, but it is fun!! 
TWO YEAR UPDATE: I have never been happier with myself!! I feel beautiful and my nose healed perfectly! Check pics on my Instagram @emilieacw because I don’t really post on here (not a self promo just wanna show you)
Things nobody tells you about having a rhinoplasty:

• Your butt is probably going to fall asleep from sitting in a chair for too long.
• You’re going to probably finish watching everything in your Netflix queue by the 4th day.
• Not breathing out of your nose is a pain in the butt.
• You might hit your nose in your sleep.
• It will SERIOUSLY hurt to laugh, smile, or brush your teeth.
• Your teeth will hurt after surgery.
• Along with the aches after surgery, you’ll also get some stinging pains.
• You’re going to need help picking things up for the next few weeks because you can’t bend down.
• You’re going to need help walking for the first few days.
• You’re most likely going to become constipated.
• Netflix will become your life.
• Gross, long black boogers will end up coming out of your nose. (EW)
• Nothing is going to taste good at all until about a week after surgery.
• You’re going to want to eat everything in your kitchen once you’re able to eat solids.
• Your mouth is going to feel like the Sahara Desert.

The list is ongoing.


*this is just what happened to me so far in my recovery. Not everyone will have the same experience.

anonymous asked:

Can u tell me what u know about her nose job? Sorry if u get asked this a lot or think it's rude or something. I'm just thinking of getting a nose job and I'm curious.. like what age was she when she got it, how does she feel about it, has she talked about it, idk whatever you know. Thank uuuu

This is how she looked before nose job:

She was 13 in 2009:

in 2010:

She had her nose done sometime in between 2011 and 2013, because there are no photos of her until 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards:

Some people say it was for medical purposes but Bella hasn’t said anything about it. 

Her nose is slightly different and she doesn’t look that different as some people say:

Plastic Surgeons: Rhinoplasties

Looking for some help, I’m looking for great plastic surgeons to perform my rhinoplasty, this upcoming July.

I have celeb doctor, who’s done work on the Kardashians, Blac Chyna, Amber Rose, and Iggy Azalea (ol’ tired ass), Dr. Ghavami. He’s on Skype ready to do a consult. That’s the doctor that brought Joselyn Cano, to fruition, he revitalized her life. Here’s Hoping he can do the same for my nose. He specializes in ethnic noses, which is right up my alley, cause if you don’t know already, I am a black girl and I have a broad, undefined nose.

Another great contender is Dr. Grigoryants, he’s also done work on celebs, but is not as well known as Ghavami, in terms of social media, but has an excellent rating on Realself.com (A plastic surgery database: Check it out). He has an extensive rhinoplasty catalog with hundreds of before and afters pictures. Every single one looks absolutely amazing. Not one nose botched.

This is a very photo-heavy post, so I’m sorry from now.


Before: Left/ After: Right

Here is some of Dr. Ghavami’s work:

*The lovely Ms. Joselyn Cano

* Three anonymous patients, all had rhinoplasties.


Here is some of Dr. Grigoryants work:

*Anonymous patients + 1 Yelp reviewer who posted her picture.


Dr. Ghavami:
(Pros)

  • Specializes in ethnic noses
  • Very respected, very well known.
  • Joselyn-fucking-Cano
  • Specialized in rhinoplasties for decades, opened his own practice a 9 years ago.

(Cons)

  • I don’t like any of the African American noses he did, I don’t know if it was the will of the patients, to achieve that specific look. To me all the befores, looked better than the afters.
  • Despite how great Joselyn looks, I am not her and results are going to vary. Can’t base my results on someone else’s.

Dr. Grigoryants:
(Pros)

  • His work is nothing short of amazing, I can’t believe some of the before and after’s.
  • Also very respected
  • More 5 star reviews, and a much bigger presence on RealSelf.com (Plastic Surgery Forum)

(Cons)

  • Based on his catalog, he is not very well versed in African American noses, there was 1 black woman, it was great but her nose and my nose don’t look similar.
  • Still waiting to hear back from him, it’s been 2 weeks.


After all of this, I’m reaching out to hopefully gain some tips, advice, stories of any ladies who know of any great plastic surgeons, either having work done themselves, word of mouth.. etc. 

What are your opinions on the pictures, pros and cons listed above? Which of these two doctors would you select?

What are some great doctors you know?

The Coveted Supra Tip Break

“The supratip is often a coveted featured of a female rhinoplasty.

The area of the nasal bridge thats sits just above the nasal tip. In an ideal female nose the tip projects slightly further forward than this supratip area, creating a “break” in the nasal profile. This can make for a very feminine attractive profile. When possible, surgical creation of a “supratip break” in females is ideal in this feature is often requested.”
