Septum Surgery

Here is a photo diary of Emma's journey with Septoplasty/Rhinoplasty surgery as a senior in high school.

To share a little background info for those of you who do not know this story. When Emma was 18 months old she fell through the bleachers at Independence High School in Phoenix, Arizona. The bleachers were not up to OSHA standards and looking back we really should have sued the school district. There were a lot of suggestions

Here we are a month and a half later and I just realized this post was stuck in my "drafts". Emma has done very well in recovery and most of all I am so happy that Emma's nose looks very natural and not all that different. I really didn't want people to see her and think, "Oh my goodness, she looks like she had a nose job!"
Here's before (green) and after (white)...there's still a little bit of swelling in the tip so it's not as skinny aka pointy as before. It will take six months for all the swelling to go away but for now Emma is very pleased that the bump is gone and she has a straight nose. All I see is my beautiful child in both pictures.
