Thanks, everyone! It went so well! Hardly any bruising but still wearing nose brace -- it's glued on, I can shower with it.

I breathed from nose on first night, unexpected! It's all gone so well, can't wait to see new nose, but have to wait a few more days.

I did YouTube videos of each day so far. Are we allowed to post links?

Yay! Here they are: (BTW - I've been taking Arnica and Bromelain, started a few days before surgery and continued. That may have helped my bruising, no way to know how bruised I would have been without the supplements.)

You look awesome, even with it swollen. I am sure once it heals totally you will love it. But I think you look great even now! Glad everything went so well!

Thanks! Yes, I'm 44 and this is my first ever costmetic surgery. Honest.

I'm not sure why I look younger than a lot of other 44 yr olds that I meet. All I can think is that I stay out of the direct sun (was never a sun worshiper) if I have to be out in the sun walking my dog, I wear hats, I never smoked, I'm not a good drinker. I never go to bed with makeup on, even when I was yonger, -- wash my face every night and put on a good moisturizer.

That's all I can think of. My face has aged well, I am afraid that one morning I'll wake up and all my years will have come slamming in on it overnight. (True fear.)

I do think my neck looks old, though. Hope the liposuction helps my neckline, but I don't think I'll ever be happy with my neck skin, time marches on and all that. I think it's because I've lost weight, the skin is loose.

I am an actress (or trying to be!) and my agent says to say that I'm 34 instead of 44. If she sends me for auditions that call for a lady in her 40's, I look out of place.

I'm glad, though. What a great problem to have!

I think my new nose makes me look younger and happier than the old bump nose, too! I think it made me look grumpy.

When you go on auditions they make you turn to both profiles, while they film you. I think my icky profile was losing me parts. At least now I'll know, if I didn't get a part it's for another reason and NOT because I have a bad profile. (A LOT of filming is done in profile or 3/4 profile -- if you notice, the actors hardly EVER look directly into the camera, it's always off to the side - so the crooked nose would SHOW.)

I'm glad I don't have to worry about it anymore, now I get to live the second half of my life with a 'good nose'.
