Getting ready :D - Europe

Hello to everyone. As most of people in this page...

Hello to everyone. As most of people in this page i hate my nose. I have a bulbous wide long nose...i have the biggest problem with my front view ,cause that's what bothers me the most...Sometimes Im so embarrased to talk to people ,and I always put my hand in front cause I dont want them to see what an ugly nose I have..Im afraid of talking to guys I like cause they all think ''woww such a beautiful girl ..with a horrible nose''/....Im so tired of wearing sunglasses everytime I walk out of home , Im tired of watching myself in the mirror , and not liking what I see....I really cant anymore... looks funny but a single nose can ruin a life!! Years are passing by and I still havent done my plastic surgery. There are many reasons..First i dont have the money to pay the procedure ,and my parents think im stupid for even thinking of doing a plastic surgery. I live in a small country in Europe and things here are different..they dont even agree for me to get a job before finishing university :((( Im so sad there anyone that feels the same ,or am I the only stupid girl to hate my nose so much? Is there anyone who has done a plastic surgery and their life has changed after it??


Hi Anastasia, I had a breast deformity that made me extremely uncomfortable. I can relate to your story in the sense that I felt I needed the surgery but my parents were not supportive at all and thought it was an abdurd idea. I come from a very traditional hispanic household in which women are discouraged from working and the norm is to go to college and get married without ever working. Since my parents would never pay for a plastic surgery I went against their will and found a part-time job in re-tail while still in school. I hid it for about 6 months. I would simply tell my parents I was going to go out with some friends while in fact I was going to work. I know this may sound crazy for most people who may read this but I'm sure you understand. It took a while for my father to accept my decision to work but they eventually agreed to let me work as long as I did well in school. Once I had enough money, I scheduled my surgery and did not tell my mother until a week before the scheduled day. My parents were completely surprised when they realized I had managed to save nearly $10,000 for my surgery. It was then when they realized how important this surgery was for me and how much my breast deformity really affected me. It has been nearly a year since my surgery and I could not be any happier. I know what it feels like to be in your position. Don't get disappointed or discouraged, I know you will be able to have the rhinoplasty. It is only a matter of time.

Wow! good for you girl.
Yeah I do remember your story. I guess you have to wait until you finish school then work and start saving $$$. The day will come for you. My revision rhinoplasty is next week and hope to get good results this time. Cheer up girl. You're so beautiful.

ahh you made my day with your story! Im really happy for you and i know Im gonna do it some just scared im losing so many years and my nose is still horrible :P thank you so much for you comment xx
I had a review here but I forgot my password :P...Oh finishing school seem so fare..i have 2 more years to wait to finish school..and then 2 more to get a job and collect the money :(( i so wish i can do this earlier..but thank you so much you are so nice for motivating me :D


It drives me crazy that my parents dont understand me...I am so ugly with this nose ...Im starting to think I should get a part time job and I wont tell them...its gonna be hard cause I dont have permission to go out at night...after i finish school im always home...Im dying to fix my nose and then go at least once to a party in some disco :( :PP haha anyways im still have hope :))

Im sorry for the mistakes I do but english its not my native language :(


First of all, you are very pretty. I see what you are talking about though, in your pics; you just want a more narrow nose. Regardless, again, you are a beautiful girl. I had to wait until I was much older than you to get surgery. Sometimes it just has to be that way. I did it on my own, without my parents' help. I am glad that I did this. It was one of the best decisions of my life. My parents didn't want to help me with the surgery either, and I didn't know until years later that they couldn't help me. They didn't have the money. So, I think that if you want something badly enought, you will find a way to make it happen - even if it takes years longer than expected. But be patient, because it is worth it.

I can say that personally my rhinoplasty has changed my life so much for the better. Every day I feel confident and beautiful its a feeling that only comes from by having an amazing nose job and a great doctor. I know exactly how you feel everyday I would look at myself in the mirror and noticed that my nose didn't match my face I hated it. If I were you I would explain to them why you want it and I would also get a job and save up for it as it will show your parents that you are serious about it . Try and ask for their support and tell them your pain.

Things are not going well :((

No progress at all. I dont understand how can my parents not see how much unhappy I am? And how can they think that what I wanna do is just stupid...I hate my self cause whenever I bring this topic up , tears start showing in my eyes without no reason and i cant even argue with them hahah ! And then my dad thinks im just obsessed and this obsession shall pass ugggg!!! I told him its not an obsession , I have a problem and I need to fix it . Since plastic surgery exists why not fix it ..

I just wanna feel happy with my reflection in the mirror , i wanna feel good with myself..Im not even scared of the surgery (usually i faint even when i see my own blood) but in this case im not scared at all. I just wanna do it , i really hope it turns out good , but even if it doesnt at least i'll say I tried ..

Anyways tonight my mom promissed she will talk to my father and bring me an answer of the decission he has made. Lets hope for the best xxx


My God you're a gorgeous woman! A nose job would do you good, you could be a damn model with those lips, eyes, and eyebrows!! I really hope you find a surgeon who is passionate about making a gorgeous face flawless!!! Best of luck :)

I know this might not seem like much, but in the meantime I think you should look up makeup contouring videos. I've seen girls pretty much totally change their faces; it's nuts. It's obviously not a solution but hopefully it could make you feel a little better!

Good News

Finally I can see a small light in this tunnel! My dad said he would think about this ( before he used to say a big NOOOOO ) I think he finally realised how important this is to me. I know its big cash to pay but i told him he should consider this as a loan , and that i will get him back every penny in the second i finish school and find a job.

I guess its a 80% yes since my mom was smiling and dad was in a good mood. Lets hope he'll get a decision by the end of this month ,so I could do the surgery at least in May ...and finally enjoy summer without being ashamed of my nose!! Yayy fingers crossed and i'll let you guys now how things are going..thank you so much to all for supporting me and saying im beautiful without even knowing me...!!! thanks again


Ur still beautiful

Random fact that I think you should know: you have incredible hair. Also, it's great you're getting closer to the nose you want.

So we went to the doctor to make a consult. The clinic is actually in the capital city so we had to make a drive in there and meet him ..I liked him. A LOT. He basically said the cons and pros of the surgery , said there is a 4% of possibility that i wouldnt like the result , he also said that he made lots of noses like mines and told me exactly what i wanted to change ,without me even saying it...But I told him i want the nose to suit my face , i mean a nose this big really looks bad , but a nose too small would look bad too! He agreed and said our family should disscus this at home and take a decision . Didnt said ''I SHOULD TOTALLY DO THIS and blabla like my other consult with another doctor went'' .So everything seemed to be going great until the moment my scary dad with a scary voice asked him how much will the surgery cost. The doctor named the prince and my dad said ''you plastic surgeons are going to be billionaires by doing these stupid things and convincing girls like my daughter to go through a knife just to be happy with themselves!'' How embarrasing. Like its the doctor's fault that I want a better nose...oh my god ...Anyways i got really angry with him and he got angry with me , he said I should get more worried about school and not about noses and stuff like that! Like I didnt worried for school all my life , i spend my whole life studying , during highschool my friends were all getting kissed and having boyfriends and going to party ,and I was studying home and learning english and french and german and shit arggg!! Not that I regret noone of this..i would never prefer being a stupid girl who only knows how to party and paint her nails...but I just wanna feel good about myself , want to have some self esteem ... anyways lol its kind of an angry situation going on in I had to take urgent causes and call the savior. MOM . Since i wouldnt talk to him , i told her to talk to him and ask him what was he gonna do. He said there are a lot of money involved but since I seem to care so much about this , in the moment he gets the amount ( we have all our money in my uncle's company and he gives us the monthly interest) he will take me to do the crazy surgery ( my dad calls this a crazy surgery and a total waste of money) but anyways there is hope and in a month or two maximum i will be happy. Finally . :P


I know how your feeling girl, having not having the support from your parents must be hard and you have to remember that no matter what your family will still love you even though they may not understand. only YOU have to live with your nose. you are doing the right thing if it affects you as much as you say. good luck and i hope you can finally be happy! Xx

Oh thank you for understanding me! Did you go through with your surgery? How did it went?

Questions !!

So If everything goes as planned ,Im having surgery in July or June (depends the 3 weeks of holiday we receive from school but Im not sure when) So i wanted to ask you guys ..who do I tell about the surgery? Now only my mom and dad know about this ,and my uncle's family heard me saying like a million times long time ago that I want a surgery and blabla so they are kind of familiar with this concept...I dont want many people to know ,but I think everyone will notice since its such a big change. It's right in the middle of my face and everyone knows I have a big nose ,so they'll understand when I show up with a smaller one. And it's a small town so the word goes mouth by should I tell everyone Im having surgery? :(

I also put some new photos of different angles of my nose (hoping these are the last photos where my nose looks that horrible)


You look so much like the model Irina Shayk. You are gorgeous as is but I do think you would be over the top amazing after a rhino!! Good Luck!

Hi there. If you don't feel comfortable telling people you'e having surgery, I don't think you should. Trust me that no one will notice you had a nose job. I tell you this based on my own experience and reading a lot of other people's reviews that no one will remember how your nose looked like. When I had my primary there was a huge difference immediately after cast was off because a hump was removed. Yet NO one in my family or close friends noticed the change in my nose!! Even my siblings didn't and they don't know until today! For my revision, initially I though people at work would notice but again no one noticed anything! When you have a rhino the change is gradual and nothing like magic esp with good results. So only you and people that you tell will notice the change. Sometimes I don't even remember how my nose looked like pre-surgery at certain angles unless I compare b/a photos. I'm happy that your dream will finally come true. I hope all goes well.

Don't do it. You are so gorgeous and if you don't like your new nose, the regret you will feel is excruciatingly painful. Drs. do not tell you this part that by making changes on your nose, it affects the whole rest of your face, and not always for the better. Your eyes will become further apart because the sidewalls will no longer be holding the skin in the position that used to. I had a rhinoplasty three months ago and is the biggest regret of my life. my whole face looks different, my nose does not match my face, my eyes have changed the expression on my face when I smile has changed, everything is change for the worse and is devastating. I look at old pictures of me now and I wish I can have my old nose back. I am telling you this from the bottom of my heart the so-called flaws that you think you have on your nose are probably contributing to your unique beauty just as mine were and I realized this too late. I really do not think you should have any surgery. you are gorgeous.

Mixed feelings

Im so weird. I've always been. Now that I am this near to do the surgery (which I wanted all my life) im starting to get mixed feelings. What if it changes all my face? What if I end up uglier?...And All of these can happend ..I know..but its a risk I should take..I can end up worse...but what if I end up better? So I will go throght with it no matter what happend next.


Hey!!! Loved your honesty on here! I go through the same feelings as you, although our noses are very different. I have huge bump on my nose, as well it just being overly large. But wanna hear something funny? I really kinda like your nose, and I think with a subtle rhinoplasty you're going to be through the moon happy. I like your nose, the shape because your look is very exotic, and you have bold features. So with it without you're beautiful for sure! But I think it's a grea decision if you feel as though it will make you happy. That's all there is to it. Only you know what you want and I support ya, it'll come out great!

You are very beautiful and I completely understand why you would like to do your nose. I felt the same way for years. I went to many doctors over the years without telling anyone and when I found the right doctor, I knew he was the one. When that happens to you, just do it. It'll be hard adjusting to your new look at first, but when your nose finally heals and looks better you'll be wondering why you waited so long. And don't worry about what other people say. It is their duty to tell you you're beautiful as you are, but at the end it only matters how you feel about yourself.

I know exactly how you feel, I thought all the same questions you have before I got my surgery - "what if it looks worse?", "what if it totally changes my face?", "do I even need to do this?" Honestly, you have really beautiful features, and while I agree with some others saying your nose gives you character, I can also understand why you don't like it. With that said - bulbous noses like ours are considered to be a more complex type of rhinoplasty. My advice to you would be to do a lot of research and find the best surgeon you can. If it means waiting until you have a job and can afford to spend more, so be it. Of course, higher cost doesn't always mean higher quality. I live in NYC and there are surgeons here who charge $20,000 and still botch noses. My point is - do your research. Ask to Speak to other patients. Don't rush into this. Its very important for your first rhinoplasty to be with a very skilled and experienced surgeon, because once done badly, they are hard to fix, and cost twice or three times as much as the first one. Ask your surgeon about his revision policy. Bring in pictures of noses you like and ask if he can achieve the look. Ask whats realistic for you. If he doesnt do computer imaging, ask for him to draw it. Be clear about what you want and what you don't want. I wish you the best of luck!

Getting Ready!

Hello peoplee :p
Its been a long time since my last update buttt I have been studying very hard for my finals ,cause this was a condition my dad put me ..if I do very good on my finals I'll get a new nose :p hahah ...actually the surgery was planed long before finals arrive but whatever I want to make him happy , and I know school is the thing he aprecciates the most.

So back to the main subject. My surgery is planed by the end of the month ( if everything goes as planned) ...still cant think and get ready for it cause my final test is on july 15...I have to get rid of that and than start getting ready for the surgery :D
I feel pretty good ..of course Im scared ..what if it turns out worse ??? but I really trust my surgeon and hope everything goes good.
Im so thrilled of getting a new nose ,I think I may actually learn how to do an eyeliner hahah ...i cant believe it...I know changing a nose wont make me beautiful but at least it could make me feel better with myself..maybe Ill even be more secure

One of my best friend told me to start straigtening my hair and get a new colour cause ive never colored my hair...and my mom wouldnt let me anyways...can I do something alse to draw atention from the new nose? maybe straigten them?

i marked the tip which the doctor said it needs some good work..the tip is a main concern cause it hangs and its just too big


Your story sounds like mine when I was living with my parents they always thought my nose was fine and that I was just being a brat by wanting a nose job :( I'm finally getting my nose job after being married for 10 years :) I hope everything works out for you too :)
