With the new year, comes new changes

For those of you who aren't aware, I'm having my rhinoplasty at the end of this month. I'd talked about this sometime last year and finally set the date for the 29th of January. I'm both nervous and excited (more excited than nervous); I can't believe it's almost here! I heard both mixed reactions to my decision, but I've done the research and understand the risks involved. I guess this is where the nervousness comes in, I guess there's no way to know for certain what the outcome will be. The recovery is also something I'm not looking forward to, but I gotta do it. I do know that if I don't do this, I'll regret it forever. So, this is my final decision. I love the surgeon, he listened to all of my concerns and gave me answers to all of my questions. Because the procedure is just weeks away, I'm becoming more and more anxious. I find myself taking a lot more pictures, so that I can morph them and get an idea of what I could look like. Below, I attached a before and virtual after. After speaking with the surgeon about what all my rhinoplasty will consist of, this is the best visualization I could come up with. I hope it turns out like this, or close enough to it. I'm counting the days!


Oh, and I think I'll keep "The Final Countdown" as the background music, as it still applies. :)
