    How’s the recovery going? My daughter had surgery with Dr. Cochran on 12/20. I’m alway curious as to the continued recovery. Once the swelling begins to subside it seems that when the dents and bumps begin to appear–rhinoplasty is not a perfect science.

    We loved Dr. Cochran. Thanks for journaling your journey! It takes some of the mystery out of it.

      Hi there, the recovery is going well. It is hard to be patient, and I do have some days where I’m not thrilled with the results. Then I have to remember it’s not even been 2 months since surgery. Patience is a definite must. Yes, as the swelling goes down the natural imperfections are more visible, but I can’t tell what is due to uneven swelling or what will be the final shape. What I do know is I’m the only person who notices! With my case, it’ll be probably between 1-2 years before the swelling is completely gone. At least that was my experience with the initial rhinoplasty.

      How is your daughter doing? Was there a lot of work on the tip?

      Thanks for the comment,
