"I am really pleased with my new nose. The changes were subtle. I am particularly happy with the improvement in my nostrils."
Due to an accident in her childhood Stephanie had a little bump on her nose that made her feel less confident in her appearance. She complained of feeling paranoid whenever speaking to someone else that they would notice the bump, and decided to have her nose surgically altered with a rhinoplasty.
Stephanie's surgery went as planned; there were no complications. She was able to take the splint off her nose quickly and felt very pleased with the result.
As soon as I came out of surgery, I didn't feel any pain and I looked different already. When the splint was off my nose and I had a look in the mirror I couldn't stop looking [at myself]. I just couldn't stop smiling.
I'm a lot more confident now. I feel a lot happier and less paranoid.
Stephanie was very self conscious of her appearance. Her rhinoplasty has given her back her self-confidence and a new lease on life.
