Rhinoplasty - CAUTION yuk pics

Hello!!!
Yesterday at 9am I went to Adelaide Memorial Hospital for my Rhinoplasty operation :)
It was so fun!! Yeah, actually fun! Everyone who looked after me was so lovely!!
The next few pictures aren't for the faint hearted, so if you have an issue with badly bruised up faces, don't look!!
Here are some of the most unglamorous pictures you've most likely ever seen!
Ps. I can't move my face, hence the dumbass expression




These pictures were taken today, so Day 2. Day 2 and 3 is when all the swelling and bruising happens.. And Im doped up on Oxycodone (its derived from opium, its like heroin and morphine) so yeah Im a tad dazed lol
If anyone has any questions about pre-op or post-op procedures, just ask :)

I'm so glad it's all over and you're feeling okay. I hope you have a quick recovery xx

Charlotte said...

When I did my research on Rhinoplasty, I couldn't find any pictures with a cast like this but it's the same as I had, lol.
I found that Q tips became my best friend for the 2 weeks until I had it removed.
Hope everything went well :).

PS. Enjoy the Oxycodone, lol!

@ Charlotte - Lol your funny as! Im definitely enojying the oxycodone!! :P My sister, shes a nurse, said I could sell it on the black market LOL
Yeah Im thinking about cleaning up my nose a bit with some Qtips! My mum suggested hydrogen peroxide? But I reckon Ill stick with H20 for now :)

tenxx said...

aw so glad it went well!

how long does it take to heal? x

MissVonDurce said...

at this point I'm jealous, yes JEALOUS 'cause I'm always complaining about how bad I need a nose job, which I desperately do & ppl keep telling me I don't need it, but I'm sure you know how that is just looking in the mirror picking at what you think looks wrong, but yeah..

I feel bad you had to go through all the after effects of bruising, but you get to take madd drugs, lol! well I can't wait to see your face when you take the gauze & straps off even though I think your nose was fine the way it is! I'm sure you still look pretty<3

Makeup Mama said...

Ooh, hope you have a quick recovery and I can't wait to see the new nose! My bff got hers done a few years ago and it totally changed the way she looked, she looks great. People from high school always come up to me and say hi and wait to be introduced to my friend, I'm always like, you already know her! We all went to school together :P

Mimilainna said...

Oh no! I hope you're feeling better!!

LipGlossGossip said...

I only use it under my eyes as well, it's great!

You should definitely try the MSF natural! It really is a great powder! :-)

Fifi said...

I checked out your previous FOTDs and I honestly think you look great already. I'd kill to have a nose like yours but now I'm excited to see your new nose! I hope you have a quick recovery and do keep us updated :)

*PS: I was wearing Elf dramatic false lashes (my favorite pair for now) and the bb cream I used is from Hanskin. I believe it's a Korean brand. I don't like it that much though, just trying to use it up :)

bowsnhearts said...

Wow...I can't wait to see the results!! I have like a really flat nose and have always thought of getting a rhinoplasty! However, I am too timid to go through with it.

I think if I have the money and the courage, I will go for liposuction first because I have this fatty body.

I hope you recover soon and we get to see the results!!!

*hugs*

Make-up Addict said...

I so wanted to wish you luck before you went in but completely forgot! Doh!

Glad it went well and you enjoyed yourself (lol). Hope it's not too painful atm.

Can't wait to see the pics after swelling/bruising has gone down :) xx

GoldielocksBeauty said...

So glad your ok! And was Fun... You'll look good as new soon! xx

Tali said...

Hope you feel ok!! Hope you love the results! Everyone i know has done it and ive seen far worse bandage wise lol so you do actually look very nice compared to what ive seen!

I know how you feel. I broke my nose 2x and because its bang in the middle of your face you are SO aware of the pain!! I didnt have bandages but they shoved cotton so far up there i was sneezing fluff for weeks!!

xxox

CHERRIES IN SYRUP said...

I hope you have a speedy recovery, you are so pretty, and will be even prettier.
Don't forget to make a nice FOTD!!! XOXO

Gaby said...

Hi sweety, I hope everything is going great for you after the surgery! It must hurt -_-

Thanks for the sweet comments ^^

Yes, I was expecting more of that Gloss Stick, but anyway, I still like it. At least I didn't pay for it, so I shouldn't complain xD
