[spendalot - preferably give yourself about at least 5 to 7 days.. cos the swelling will be pretty bad on the 2nd to 4th day. like the entire nose bridge part and at the eyebags area. for me i was lucky that my swelling wasnt that exaggerated. and you'll feel damn shitty when you see this huge swelling on your face and you'll momentarily forget that it's just the initial swelling ya. also, more advisable to go with at least one companion for moral support. it really helps loads.]
so max 7 days thats it? After that I can see people and they wont notice the swelling? I was thinking that I have to hibernate at home for a month! Can you share with us what you did at Dr Sukit?
Someone mentioned that the best rhinoplasty is when even your close relative look at you, they will find you look better but cant point a finger to what has changed.[/quote]
hmmm. well, of cos the swelling doesnt go down immediately.. it takes about a month or so before u can see the results of ur nose more clearly, cos now when i look back at pics that i took in the 1st 2, 3 weeks after my op, my nose bridge looks rather high even tho the increase in height wasnt that much as it looks... and now when i look at my nosebridge, it's much lower than that time.
about meeting people a week after the op, i think it shld be alright, lk the swelling shldnt be so bad as the 1st few days following the op. however, if ur nose bridge was pretty non-existent in the 1st place, then it Might be a lil obvious. so if ure worried that people will notice, maybe get a new haircut, dye job, a fringe or something? yeah. and just remember to act natural! heh. for me, i tried to give myself about 2 weeks before really meeting up with people... my family didnt notice anything strange about my face when i came back frm bkk tho, which i was quite surprised about cos i would have thought that they would know my face best yeah. i was abit paranoid when it came to meeting my friends tho, cos i kept feeling that they were scrutinising my face. hur. but so far, no one has really said anything. hmm.
btw, i just did a simple rhinoplasty with dr sukit, i-shaped implant yeah.
