Dr. Metin Kerem just performed a rhinoplasty on me and it was by far one of the best decisions I have made.
Before I decided to undergo plastic surgery, I contacted Dr. Kerem's clinic and talked to Larin Ferve, one of the most wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure to talk to. She responded to all my queries in a timely manner and she was incredibly informative and caring. After speaking to Larin and reading up on Dr. Kerem's great reputation as a plastic surgeon, I decided to book my flight to Istanbul to get my rhinoplasty done.
I was still a little worried because not only did I have a bump on the bridge of the nose, but I also had a bulbous nose with a hanging tip. Actually, I barely had a tip and all the contouring in the world couldn't create the illusion of one. I thought that it may be possible to get rid of the bump, but the tip was a little tricky.
However, during the initial consultation (right before the surgery), Dr. Kerem informed me that it is possible and that I need not worry. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions, which was so relieving.
After the consultation, I headed to the hospital to get ready for the rhinoplasty. The hospital was beautiful and the nurses there were lovely. Dr. Kerem came to see me right before my surgery just to check up on me. Afterwards, I was taken to the surgery room where I was put to sleep.
After I woke up, I was definitely still high on anaesthesia, it was good though as I had no issues. I had to apply ice to my face to reduce some of the swelling that I had and I was given pain killers. I definitely did feel pain and my nose was stuffed. I cried a little simply because I am a baby and have zero pain tolerance. I was also getting a lot of bleeding from my nose, which is expected, but the nurses continued to change the nose packing throughout the day which was helpful.
After spending the night at the hospital, I went back to the hotel the next day. For the next 6 days, I had dark bruises under my eyes, my eyelids and my cheeks. My cheeks were swollen and my eyes were watering. I continued to take pain killers and the antibiotics that Dr. Kerem prescribed for me. Throughout these few days, I wasn't able to taste the food that I ate which I believe was quite normal. I wasn't able to smile properly or rub my lips together (this is normal so if you are going to get this procedure, do not worry).
After the first two weeks, things get a lot better. The bruising will be gone by now, however, my nose was still numb and itchy and I was getting clear discharge. I started to use saline spray to help with cleaning my nose and with hydration.
It has been a month now and I am SO thrilled with the results. My nose looks amazing and fits my face perfectly! At first I thought it was too turned up but now I realize that no, it is just perfect for me. There is still some swelling in the tip of my nose but Dr. Kerem said it will take about a year for all the swelling to subside and for me to see the final result. I love my nose now though. In comparison to my nose before, which was big and made me look older, this nose is amazing.
I want to thank Dr. Kerem for doing the surgery for the wonderful results. It truly is a work of art. I also want to thank Larin and Fatoosh for being there for me post surgery to answer any questions and deal with me freaking out about every little thing I experienced.
I would recommend Dr. Kerem to everyone I know and I would definitely go back to his clinic should I need to get anything done.
