I told you I would update you on how my nose is doing each and every Monday so here are pictures of week 2. The top left picture is my original nose. The bottom left picture is week 1 immediately after removing the nose cast. The picture on the right is my nose today and also my new hair color. Not a huge difference but you can tell the tip is getting a bit smaller because it seems to be tilting down a fraction. That is because it is less swollen and bulbous. The swelling goes down more and more each week.
As for pain, yes I still have some. It just feels like a bad sinus headache. Nothing I can’t handle. This week I have a bit of numbness and what feels like a harness to the tip of the nose. I have exercises I”m supposed to do and I do them religiously. I notice if I laugh and scrunch my face it hurts my nose a bit across the bridge. I can deal with that. I’ve honestly never been so happy with anything before. I love my new nose more and more every day.
My chin and cheek liposuction has started to really show. It’s not 100% done being swollen but it’ll be there soon. I’ve already noticed a huge difference especially around my jowl area. When I smile it pulls back nicely. Finally I don’t have a bag face.
I’m still not ready to go public with the arms. They still hurt a lot but I’ve been reassured by many other women who have been through liposuction that this is normal and it will take some time to heal. I’ve started up with The South Beach Diet Phase 1 again to try and really get the fluids out of my body. I’m still super swollen and I know it’s fluid. I wrap up my arms at night with ace bandages and I do a lymphatic massage throughout the day to try and drain said fluid. It seems to be helping. They do look a lot better which makes me happy! I think in a few more weeks I’ll be ready to show them off. There is no doubt in my mind Dr. Pope at Orlando Plastic Surgery Center did a phenomenal job, I just need to get through the healing process.
That’s about it for now. I dyed my hair with One N’ Only Argan Oil. Keep in mind my hair was pretty dark blonde with some light blonde worked into it. I chose a color called Dark Golden Blonde because I wanted to go just a bit darker brown for Autumn and now sure how it turned into a gingery brown. I didn’t mean for that to happen, I usually stay clear of any red whatsoever. However I LOVE it. I’ve never been so happy with a do it yourself color before. I highly recommend this product which you can purchase at Sally Beauty Supply.
So tell me what you think, can you tell a difference in my nose, chin and cheeks or even my hair color?
