Want to Take the Plunge, but my Girlfriend is Very Against It - Great Neck, NY

I am a 20 year old male who has been interested in rhinoplasty for the past 8 years. I was terrified of the idea, and feared the old saying "don't fix something that's not broken." I've always felt awkward looking at my face in photos, and even the mirror at times. My nose has a dorsal hump that protrudes greatly and my nose is rather wide for my small face. Recently, I've come across the funds for a surgery and finally made a consultation with a surgeon. The surgeon gave me the photos of how it would look corrected, and I am enthralled because that's exactly what I want. However, I had a long talk with my girlfriend. She brings up the points that the surgery can go badly, I'm not correcting the true issue (my self-esteem), this can lead to more surgeries, and that she's loved my face and nose from the first time she saw me. I'm very conflicted now and very undecided whether or not I want to go forward with the surgery. My girlfriend's opinion matters more to me than anything and I definitely do not want to risk displeasing anyone with the results.
