Just About to Take the Leap! - Canada

I am a 22 year old female living in Canada and just about to go under the knife for rhinoplasty surgery! Ever since I can remember I have had to deal with my personal insecurities about my nose. Like others on this site they have experienced the same thing. I was teased a lot in junior high and still hear comments from my peers about my large nose.. and how I have a great personality but a "huge beak". I even have had a good friend of mine tell me that I would be a 10/10 if it wasn't for my nose.

I am not getting this surgery because of the rude comments I have heard in the past, but it has helped with the decision I made. The one thing I am excited most for is being able to socialize with people and not focus on the fact that they may just be staring at my nose!

I received my first consulation when I was 19 to get an idea of the procedure and how much it was going to cost me. Finally 3 years later and 6 doctors later I found the doctor that I felt most comfortable with. Not only was he extremely nice and understanding but he knew exactly what to do which helped put me at ease. For the last 6 months or so I have been on this site debating if I should post my own story but never had the guts to do so until now!

I have a twin sister that has the same insecurities as me but can't afford the surgery. That makes me nervous because I don't want to look much different than her but I am ready for a positive change in my life.

I am just really nervous that the outcome will not be what I hope for. My boyfriends auntie got a nose job awhile ago and they up-turned her nose so much she looked like a pig and she had to get a revision a year later. That is a HUGE fear of mine.

Surgery is booked for 9:00am this Thursday! Wish me luck.

I am not sure if I am ready to put photos up of myself quite yet.. but thought I would make a post about my experience.

Surgery is in a couple of hours!! Wish me luck :)
