It's Monday, I feel like talking about plastic surgery.
So, I lived with that nose for 24 years. 19 was the first time I really considered Rhinoplasty, I even went to a plastic surgeon and had him show me what I'd look like with a small snout. It was a terrible experience and though I loved the way my computer generated nose looked, I hated the doctor and how I seemed to just be a young woman that he didn't need to be his patient! Either he was incredibly busy or he really didn't care that I was there.
Feburary 2011 my hunt was back on. I found a surgeon who fit well with me and had a great reputation (he'd actually done some work on my mom a while back). We set the date for May 22, 2011. I was excited, scared, nervous, and honestly ready to pee in my pants the night before the surgery. I actually went to a baseball game and downed a beer to ease the nerves.
