An Australian blogger is a social media star after documenting the good, bad and the ugly of getting a nose job.
Rhiannon Langley (24) flew from Melbourne to Thailand in xxx where she underwent rhinoplasty and shared her "nose job journey" on Instagram.
For several weeks, her nearly 200,000 Instagram followers have been cheering her on as she gave a brutally honest account of her recovery, including graphic pictures.
The hairdresser said she always wanted to have cosmetic surgery on her nose, saying she couldn't "stand it" looking at herself in the mirror before deciding to finally go under the knife.
Two weeks post opp #BeforeAndAfter (mind the different lighting) My blog post is now up! If you want to read my Medical Tourism experience click on the link in my bio and then the blog tab! VBlog coming soon! I tried to include as many details as I could! If you have any questions please comment on the blog post @cosmeditour #Cosmeditour #RhiannonGetsRhino I am recovering well and so happy to be back with the family
"The biggest issue I had with my nose was a ‘hanging columella’ (google it if you’re not sure) it’s like a droop on the tip, it also hung to the right, it drove me insane! My nose was so long for my small face and I couldn’t stand it," she wrote in her blog post.
She's now back in her native Melbourne and back to her day-to-day routine, saying she'll be in touch with her followers who have any queries about cosmetic surgery. And is expected to be equally upfront with her progress before the swelling subsides in in months.
"I already feel so much more confident and can’t wait for the end of the 6 months. I am recovering really well and couldn’t thank cosmeditour enough for being the best agency to do this," she wrote in a post at the end of her journey.
"Thank you to my amazing fiancé as well for taking care of me and my friends, family and followers support! Again lots of love and thanks for reading my blog post about my surgery experience in Thailand!"
So I have some very exciting news I've been planning for myself over 6 months now! I am getting rhinoplasty done! 've always wanted this since I was a lot younger, and I decided why not, if it makes me happy and improves my self esteme then I'm doing it! Yes plastic surgery is a controversial thing to do but this is my life and it's something I've wanted to do for so long and especially before my wedding (1 year to go). I'm not going to pretend on social media I didn't do anything when I did. So I've decided to blog about it, my experience, what I went through etc as I am actually doing it in Thailand! Which people seem to have quite an opinion about, I will be doing posts, snap chat and a final blog about Thailand hospitals, the surgeon, agency ( which is @cosmeditour #cosmeditour ) and the surgery etc! I am so excited to share this with you guys and I'm owning my decision, follow me on snap chat ( RhiannonLang ) to see day to day process etc! I leave Thursday for Phuket for a night then Bangkok for it all will keep you updated and Thankyou to my amazing friends and family who support me all the way #RhiannonGetsRhino
