I have hated my nose and chin for as long as I can...
- 4 Oct 2013
I have hated my nose and chin for as long as I can remember! I was in denial for the longest time that I had a big nose and chin but as I'm getting older both my nose and chin seem to be getting even more prominent! It used to be that I only hated these features in pictures, but in the last few years I've really begun to see in the mirror what the camera has been telling me all along. There was a period in my life where I felt great... I was complicated frequently and despite my less-than-tiny features I still felt pretty! Now I feel just downright ugly! I don't like meeting people or running into people I used to know because I feel as though they will say to themselves "wow, she got ugly!". I think about my ugliness constantly! Even when I wake up in the middle of the night it pops into my head! I'm a new mother to the sweetest almost 5 month old boy who is my whole world! And when he looks up at me with his adorable little face and those beautiful eyes... as much as I LOVE it when he does... I can't help but wonder if thinks I'm ugly. Horrible thing to think, I know... I hope not to be judged here, but it happens. I feel bad for my husband at times as I wish I were prettier for him. Especially knowing how pretty his ex-wife is! Ouch!! I am hard-pressed to find a doctor who is experienced with chin reductions, especially in my area! (Grand Rapids, MI area). Despite my deep insecurities I do have a good outlook on life! I love greatly and enjoy the simple things! My husband and I have lots of fun just living life... yet underneath it all I am plagued with this embarrassment and hatred of my face. I feel manly! I just want to feel more feminine and pretty and get rid of this feeling I live with! Financially it is not the right time yet, which is a little depressing, but I will find a way someday! At least for rhinoplasty... that is first priority... chin reduction comes second. I will put photos up eventually, though it will take some courage! Haha. Any chin reduction experiences out there would be great to hear! Any Dr's in the area who have experience in this area would be great to hear from as well!
