Post-Op Day 8
Hey Everyone!
So, I thought I'd give everyone an update to my post-op cosmetic surgery.
Today is Day 8 (post-op). Last Friday I went under the knife, which you can read about here to get the following procedures:

* Rhinoplasty (nose job)

* Chin implant

* Jaw fillers

*Under eye fillers

I am excited to inform you that I took a total of four (4) Fioricet pills and nixed the rest because the pain just wasn't that bad. By day five, I was off of the Tylenol pills, which helped with the pain and let me rest.

Cost: $16,000 (for everything)

Was it worth it? YES! While my nose will take about six months to heal and reduce in size, I can say that I am VERY PLEASED with the work that Dr. Lamperti did. He wasn't the least expensive, which was closer to $12,000. But he certainly wasn't the most expensive, which was $29,000.

How did I find my doctor?

It took three months of research, mainly through actual consultations with a variety of surgeons (that I had to pay for, which ranged from $75 - $100 per consult). So I spent a SMALL FORTUNE finding the right doctor, but it's so worth it! But it all started with RealSelf.com.
That site is the definitive A-Z site for all things cosmetic. This should be your first step in your cosmetic journey. You're going to learn a lot and it's free to use!

Thanks @buddyesd I am most surprised that so many people have come to me post-surgery and have expressed interest in getting work done. Two people approached me seeking to take a nagging thought and turn it into actual surgery for themselves. I am glad that I can inspire others to take that leap of faith, because that's exactly what it is!

I was nervous before, but more anxious to just get it done already @buddyesd When I woke, that was a mix of nerves, anxiety and WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST DO panic. LOLOL It was a flash of reality that what was done, was done. There was no turning back. But it vanished quickly.
