When I was 18 years old I was hit in the face with a surfboard. I remember I couldn’t stop the bleeding for over an hour. I was a bit of a tough chick growing up. I never bothered to get it looked at or even had an x-ray on it.
A couple years later I was headbutted again during a soccer match. It’s fair to say my nose by this stage had experienced quite a bit of trauma. I inherited my dad’s nose, so I remember I was never particularly happy with the size of it as a child, however, I had never heard or even considered Rhinoplasty Surgery until much later in life.
Functionally, I noticed a step wise deterioration in my breathing subsequent to my two trauma but not enough for me to action it. It wasn’t until I had given birth to my children that I noticed my severe hay fever and sinusitis symptoms were intensifying. Initially, I went to Dr Mooney for some topical nasal steroid agents to manage my poor breathing and allergic reactions, however, I didn’t see any noticeable good effects. It was then he suggested surgery. When I realised I could change my nose cosmetically and fix my breathing issues at the same time it was a no-brainer.
