Going to Get One but Won't Get into Debt over It -Denver City, TX

Hello all, I think I am pretty set on getting a...

Hello all, I think I am pretty set on getting a rhinoplasty. This has been on my conscious now for, gosh, quite a few years and I dont think it is something that I can get over or will just go away.

I feel gutted about it really as as I grew up I honestly thought that i was okay and its only as i have got older that I have started analysing myself and realise that I feel I am quite ugly from certain angles. I have always had bad skin which doesnt help.

I do feel that my nose is going to be quite a lot more complex than some people's operations which makes me feel a bit afraid because I know without a skilled surgeon it could go horribly wrong...this is your nose we're talking about after all and you only get one of them! tee hee. You know, with some people's noses they just a bump knocking off or something but other noses are a lot more complex than that.

So far I have been shortlisting surgeons who I feel have shown skill at shortening the projection of the nose, and therefore I feel that there would be a good chance that they might be able to get mine right. I have decided I will definitely go to someone who has the computer imagining so I can maybe have a reasonable idea of what it might turn out like.

So far I have told a few people, most of whom just think you're being over critical of yourself. However, I believe that there is something out of proportion on my face.

I will post again with some list of the surgeons i am considering ...Quite a few on the list so far, need to shortlist :s xxx
PS I am from UK, am considering one surgeon in Denver USA so have been forced by this page into listing a clinic

Like others I can't really see what is wrong with your nose! You are an attractive girl with a nice nose! People really won't be obsessing over your nose, only you will be bothered! Nobody seemed to notice the huge hump I had on my nose! Even the nurse said she was wondering what I was in for and it wasn't till the surgeon was taking photos that she saw me side on and even then she said you still look lovely! It is hard though when we don't like something about ourselves but beauty is from within but then again I spent £4800 on a new nose!! What would you like to change about your nose! Are you happy with now you look other than your nose?

Hello, thanks for your comment. I saw your after pics by the way and love your new nose, looks so cute, probably why those people will be bitches to you as it has added lots of beauty for you so you have to realise that other women will get jealous of that. Hmm about my nose, I dislike from the front the gap between the lip and the nose as I feel that there is quite a large gap. I dont know whether it is my face that is differently formed but I feel so ugly from R side of my face. I find it hard to believe that people cannot see that I look different from each side shot as I can see a different. From the L side I think i look in more proportion and more attractive but from R side I look like different person i think. I look ugly. I would rather be one or the other lol. I am quite impressed with what Dr. Tyler has achieved with you but I am still not sure I would trust a UK surgeon as I feel my nose has different issues to your one. I want it to look longer on my face and I also want it somehow to look less projecting out. It will cost me a fortune but I think when I go to see a surgeon that I will say i want to deal with my profile issue and see if they will agree that I do have a different look from each side and see what they recommend. I believe my jawline is differently formed from one side to other so think that is also making a difference. I just dont feel normal really. I hope people are not just being polite on here as i only want people to be honest. Hope to stay in touch, dont let the b*tches get you down ;) E

I'm actually kind of surprised, not only that you want rhinoplasty but that you think your nose will be more complicated than other noses - because honestly, your nose right now is what a lot of people on here have PAID to get :) It's absolutely beautiful, feminine, and suits your face perfectly! If you really do want to go through with the procedure, good luck for sure, but I agree with Rayah that a finesse rhinoplasty would probably be the best option to look at :)

I think from some angles my nose does look attractive so I don't disagree with you totally and this is the problem I am unsure what could be done to improve the bits I hate about it. I think I hate the way from nose and upper lip tend to merge as it makes my nose looks like it is projecting out a lot. Some people have more of an 90 degree angle but my skin tends to merge into my nose if that makes sense. I have had a couple of people take the mick out of my nose so I don't believe it is just in my head. I suppose I am a bit worried that a nose job may take away the couple things I like about it as I agree that it is quite straight.. However I have become obsessed about it and my appearance and it impacts on my daily life as I dont feel like being sociable and feel paranoid. I hate the way my nose looks different from different angles (e.g. i feel when looking at my face from L hand side that I feel half attractive but from R hand side I feel hideous). When I can, I will always position myself in a way that people won't see me as much from that side. I think that sometimes the nose can be affected before birth (e.g. in womb) which I think can explain a lot about why noses look different sometimes. I thnk I'll need to come to the States and get a surgeon's opinion by using the computer imaging as to whether I think it can be improved. FRom the front my nose also goes in and out and it is not very thick in places. I dont find it that easy to breathe through it too. I have two little bones that stick out and then the skin goes inwards which I also dont like. I have never heard of a finesse rhinoplasty before so may explore that...thanks E x

I personally don't see anything wrong with your nose (honestly). If my after could look like yours now I'd be happy. If you do do a rhino I'd go for a finesse rhinoplasty ( something a lot of celebs do) It's just a very small change. But I think you are very pretty as you are at every angle. ;)

Thanks for the tip off about finesse one, never even heard of it til you mentioned it. I feel so ugly and know i should be grateful that it looks okay from some angles but I'm just feel that i look so abnormal from the others. I look hideous from some angles. I don't think it can be totally in my head cos a few people have took mickey out of it. Probably the photos i picked don't show gravity of the problem. will have to be brave and put worse ones on ;) thanks for commenting. E

Maybe it's just the pictures, but it's hard to tell what you could want to change. You look really good. Keep in mind that you don't know exactly how surgery will turn out and recovery is not instant. Consider this very seriously and make sure you have very specific changes you want or you could wind up with a nose you like a lot less that cost you a lot of time and money.

Can you clarify what you dont like about your nose? You obviously do not have a hump and have a pretty and straight nose. I dont think you should touch your nose, but obviously if its something thats been bothering you for years, you need to do what is going to make you feel emotionally and psychologically (and physically) happier!

Thanks so much for starting your story! I had a complex nose, too, and I'm really glad you're doing your homework! It will make all the difference. Do you have a timeline in mind of when you'd like this done?

Hello I am thinking of coming to the states at Christmas and will see maybe 5 consultations. I have been researching on here for months. I have added some photos now, hopefully people will see what I mean about my nose as i do think that it is out of balance. I am impressed with the following surgeons so far (just from their photos really): Dr. Nacify, Seattle Dr. Ghavami Beverley Hills plastic surgery Dr. Zoumalan, California Dr. Menachof, Denver. I still need to research how health insurance will work as I'm not a US citizen. I think I will just tell them to focus on fixing my profile as I dont want to change my whole nose in one go, as I'm worried about that a bit. Thanks for replying.
