Ffff society!!! Be yourself

even tho i have a larger nose then most i never really was bothered by my nose when i was younger i feel as if i accepted myself more i am who i am. the older i got the more i started thinking... if only i had a smaller nose... i wasn't teased that i remember anyway but its simply how i i see myself now and i don't want my nose any bigger! my best friends think I'm crazy and that I'm beautiful &that i should appreciate what i have instead of what i can fix. also if it isn't broke don't fix it. but i definitely inherited my grandpas nose and me being 100% Italian EVERYONE says "your Italian, your nose is what makes you, you" blah blah blah. I don't want to lose who i am but i also feel my nose doesn't change who i am it will only change how i view myself. DON'T get me wrong i don't think I'm ugly or anything!!!! and i have not made any type of decisions yet! i would love feedback tho!

i do have a consultation with Dr. Kassir and Dr. Joseph both very good surgeons but i decide till i see what they can do... its kinda weird but idk i think i might look weird with a small nose? idk haha anyway this wouldn't be my 1st surgery 2 years ago i did get my boobs done when i was 19 (i had A LOT of lil girls hating on me) but they're opinion doesn't matter!!! i worked HARD for my money and it was my choice and i loveeeee them ha but i hated the attention!! soo annoying that was not my purpose for getting the surgery. that surgery was a breeze pretty painless the worst part was sitting in my house and after 3 days i couldn't take it anymore and i was doing everything pretty normal... this is my nose tho and doing anything to my face scares me to death... i have to go to work :/ ill update more when i no more :)

I have a question for all who has already had the surgery... Open or closed??? I read the difference but I want to no what people decided to go with and which you prefer other than what the the doctor prefers? Let me no!

Today i had my 1st consultation with Dr. Joseph in...

today i had my 1st consultation with Dr. Joseph in NJ. he was really nice made me feel very comfortable. he gave me a estimate of 7,176 after tax... i have breathing problem so he would also be fixing that issue as well if i decide to go through the surgery. which puts the payment at 9,386 but my insurance should cover the 2,210. I STILL HAVE NOT MADE A FINAL DECISION! i put my comparison pictures up feedback would be awesome! this is so hard

IVE DECIDED TO NOT GO THRU WITH THE SURGERY!!! maybe that will change one day but as of right now at this point in my life i really do feel as if it is unnecessary for me to change my nose i think im beautiful the way i am, even tho I DO want a smaller nose and i do hate mine saving my money is wayyyy better. This website helped me out a lot and i hope my lil share could help someone decide thanks everyone :)

Alright so I'm still NOT getting the surgery but I...

Alright so I'm still NOT getting the surgery but I would like to share some info of face readings with your nose! I have a big nose and this is what I found also if all of us who hate our noses stopped getting surgery then there would be more people with big noses and then it wouldn't be such a big deal... I no it's about how we feel about ourselves because I've been there. But society is the wrong ones not us. We SHOULD LOVE OURSELVES FOR WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE ARE BORN its sad how many of us are so into getting surgery instead of realizing we are all beautiful big nose or small it's still us!!


Big noses: If you think that your big nose makes you look bad or if you don't really like its shape then cheer up because according to face reading your big nose can help you leave a better impression!

People with big noses hate receiving orders and like being their own bosses. They don't like doing small tasks and prefer making bigger contributions than others. That's why these people will hardly ever be your bar tenders or your receptionists. People with big noses like to move higher in ranks and may fight for them.

People with big noses get bored easily from systematic and repetitive work. If you are a manager then handing off donkey work to these people would be a great mistake.

Small noses: A person with a small nose does not have problems dealing with repetitive and systematic work. You are most likely to find secretaries and people who work in similar jobs having small noses. Of course they may get bored of routine work but not as fast as a big nosed fellow will.

Eagle nose: The hooked nose or one that looks like the eagle's hook from the side view is one i am talking about. A person with a nose like this one has the same characteristics as that of a big-nosed person but with a bit of exaggeration. To get along with such a person make sure you respect him and make him feel important.

The helper's nose: If, from the side view, the nose is concave with a round tip, then this person has a helper's nose. He is called the helper because he has a natural tendency to help others. He may join charity groups for the satisfaction he feels when he does these kinds of activities. The only draw back is that he is sometimes taken advantage of by his friends.

When nose tip is round : If the nose tip is round when observed from a front view then this person is nosy!! He likes to know about everything that is going on and he may try to get all information out of you If there's something that he knows little about. Don't make him feel like you are hiding something if you want to get along with him. What's pretty funny is that the word nosy here is related to the nose which shows that this word may have had a face reading origin.

Nose profile going up: When, viewed from the side, the horizontal line at the bottom of the nose can be pointing upwards. A person with this kind of nose trusts everything. He may even be the victim of scams or fall a prey to a television commercial that advertises a certain low quality product.

Take notice of the noses of small kids' and you will notice how most of them have exactly this type of nose. kids believe everything you tell them and this person thinks like them. The good point about the person with this nose type is that he's not skeptical at all.

Nose profile heading down: This type of nose is the same as the previous one but the difference is that the profile is going down instead of up so that the nose appears to be pointed downwards. This person is very skeptical and he barely believes anything new unless he gets all the proofs he asks for. When dealing with him, bear in mind that he will ask a big number of questions before he can believe you.

Nose profile is horizontal: when the same nose profile is horizontal then this person is neither a skeptic nor a person who believes in anything. This person has a balanced approach when hearing about something new.

Also Chinese face reading says big noses are the money spot! So people with bigger noses have greater luck with money at certain ages

I love what you say in your post! I had a rhinoplasty done when I was 18, it wasn't done well and I am considering a revision rhinoplasty. I think when I was younger I thought getting my nose "fixed" would give me the personal power and confidence I wanted, but looking back (I'm 37 now), I can see so clearly that while it can make you feel better about yourself, true power and confidence are separate from being pretty and "accepted". I think that even if my first rhinoplasty had given me great results, I would have found other things to dislike about my appearance, because I just wasn't a confident young woman. Now I have more confidence in my talents and abilities and my attempts at being a good person. I know that I'll be okay even if my nose is still big and imperfect. I will still have good people that love me, and what matters more than that?

Thanks! It's a extremely hard decision and as much as I hate my nose it's a shame to spend thousands just to feel better about it. My whole concern was what if it gets bigger! I would not be okay with that but either way someone is going inherit my genes of my nose somewhere down the line whether its my my kids or my grand kids. I deff got my grandpas nose! And surgery really is a BIG deal. I've had it before but I just want to accept myself the way I am cuz just as you said I could get the surgery and then start finding more things I don't like about myself rather then appreciate what I do have

you are a beautiful girl but its up to you and how bad you want it. I'm 23, middle eastern, and inherited my dad's nose (thanks dad), everyone told me i had other beautiful Arabian features (eyes, smile) but people's comments don't matter. i wanted it to feel good, and i got it, and i feel great!!! most amazing feeling. small nose with a slight curve. i just love it! ofcourse your friends are going to say that, honestly who would say "yeah you should do it" lol! but i do think your other features would stand out more, its just an improvement. good luck deciding!

Hey, my advice to you is make sure you realize that you have very thick skin. It will take much longer to heal and you won't see great results straight away, make sure you discuss this with your surgeon.

Have you looked into Drs. Robert Glasgold in Highland Park or Frank Scaccia in Red Bank. I've seen really good results from them

I had my closed. Well usually it depends on what you want to have done and the thickness of your skin. Usually if your skin is thicker and you want your tip to be narrowed I think dr prefers open so they can have better view of your nose structure. I know that open technique will leave more scars, however allows surgeon to have opportunity to have a better view. On the other hand, closed technique leaves no outer visible scars (only if you get alarplasty) however, dr does not have as good of view of structure. I had done closed and I am very happy, because I do not want to have scar( of course in some people scar might be invisible due to good healing) but I did not wanted to take chance. Since I was also getting alarplasty, so I decided these scars would be enough for me.

exactly!!! if im able to change it why not. i should just appreciate the beauty i do have because the last thing i want to do is resemble another person everyone is unique and beautiful the way we are naturally... cost wise it is really stupid there is a lot of other great things i could be using my money for but to me this is worth it i try to forget about what i could do with the money instead of beating myself up since this is what i want. and i define myself as a go-getta i wanted to get boobs i worked my ass of got my boobs and a car in the same year im proud of myself even tho its selfishly on my own body. being bullied is NOT my reasoning for surgery its simply what i want for myself. cheers to us for going after what matters to us and not worrying about what others have to say about it!!! cant wait to see your results! waiting is deff the worst part

I know what you mean with the "you are italian" blah blah I have the same with my "israeli nose" and I hate to be associated like that... I was in the same situation as you, i find myself beautiful but my nose was just something I lived with until one day i just thought, yeah but what if it could make me prettier and happier? If I can do it why not? But I was determined to have it because after a while I was really unhappy with my nose and got bullied a lot... I find u very pretty already! now its up to you to see if u really want to go through with it. One piece of advice, do not do it unless ur completely sure u want to do it! Good luck keep me posted cheers! x

From experience I can say TAKE YOUR TIME. Don't rush into anything until you have really weighed the pros and cons entirely. Even though your friends say not to do it, this is ultimately your decision. My friends told me not to, that I didn't need it, but this is something personal and I needed to do to feel better about myself. One main reason why I wanted to do it is because I had a large nose to begin with and as I have aged I noticed it has gotten bigger. I'm pretty sure that as you age your nose gets bigger (just look at older people's noses...they are always bigger when they are 50+ yrs old compared to how they looked when they were in their 20's). I wanted to reduce it now before I ended up looking like an old wench. lol. Something for you to consider. Make sure to really think about questions to ask your plastic surgeon...do a lot of research on them - their credentials, their educational institution, where they did their residency, what hospital are they affiliated with, their before and afters. I know you have had your breasts done, but facial surgery is MUCH different, and Rhinoplasty is an extremely complex and risky procedure...risky in terms of you really are not going to know just how your nose will heal and end up looking like. Starting out with the best doctor possible will up the chances of your Rhinoplasty results coming out positively. Do your research, know the risks, and take your time deciding. :)

Hey I think you look beautiful! I understand what you going through. I wanted to have my nose since I was 14! I finally did it on June 18 I had my procedure and now I am just waiting until June 26 so my cast can come off! I think you need to really think what exactly you don't like about your nose and you need to weigh pros and cons which include finance, recovery time, staying home for week etc. Just think so you really want to have your nose done despite all difficulties that my arise? On my case yes I really wanted to have it done, I just hated my old nose. Now I am wearing a cast and lots of things go through my mind what if I won't like it when cast comes off. You really need to consider all aspects and decide. Good luck!
