Earlier this week, Gypsy Rose said she is still going through her personal journey after spending seven years in person, and the next step was a nose job.

"I’m going through a personal transformation journey currently and that includes a physical one, too," she told PEOPLE earlier this week. "Wish me luck with my surgery and watch the whole thing this summer on 'Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up'," which will air on Lifetime in June.

While we don't know what her new nose looks like quite yet, what we do know is that everything went well and according to plan.

The operation "went great," she said. "I come in and out of sleep. I was in pain at first, but I am on pain medicine."

The 32-year-old went on to reveal that she "can't breathe through [her] nose because of the packing, but that comes off on the 10th [of April]."

It is unclear who Gypsy Rose went to see to get her nose job, but according to plastic surgeon Eugene Kim "it is normal for patients to have stuffiness and nasal congestion immediately following the rhinoplasty."

Dr. Kim adds, "This can make it uncomfortable or difficult to breathe freely through the nose. Patients, on an average, begin breathing normally through their nose after 1 – 3 weeks."

For the next few days, Gypsy will continue to keep the bandaging on, but one thing is for certain -- "I want to see it so bad!" she told PEOPLE.

After the bandaging is removed, Gypsy must still take care of her nose in the weeks and months to come. "Patients should refrain from blowing their nose for a minimum of 2 – 3 weeks following the surgery," Dr. Km stated. "Otherwise, you may end up damaging the healing nasal structure and compromise the results. You may find relief by using a gentle saline spray.

Gypsy Rose's nose job comes just days after she split from her husband, Ryan Anderson, after two years of marriage.

"People have been asking what is going on in my life. Unfortunately, my husband and I are going through a separation," Gypsy wrote in a statement. "I moved in with my parents home down the bayou."

"I have the support of my family and friends to help guide me through this," she adds, 'I am learning to listen to my heart. Right now, I need time to let myself find… who I am."

While Gypsy Rose nor Ryan have spoken publicly of the separation, close friends of the ex-convict blame Ryan's behavior for the split.

"He got in her face and screamed," her close friend and tattoo artist Nadiya Vizier said of a recent fight the two had. "Gypsy said that she was afraid he was going to hit her. He didn't — but that happened in the past with her mother. So, her first instinct was to tighten up and be prepared."

"But she got to safety and called her lawyer, too," she added, claiming Gypsy locked herself in the bathroom for protection. "Ryan is a big guy, and she told me it was really scary."

The next morning, Gypsy packed up her belongings and drove to her father's home in Cut Off, Louisiana. "I'm glad Gypsy got out of this situation," Vizier added. "She's such a good person. I'm glad she called somebody and got help that night."

Blanchard's cousin Bobby Pitre also spoke out, claiming "Ryan got in touch with Gypsy on a dare, and she took the bait, and it went from there" and so "it wasn't a genuine relationship."

The Blast has attempted to contact Ryan Anderson, but have yet to hear back.
