My story Ever since the age of 13 I started to...
Ever since the age of 13 I started to notice some changes with my nose. From having a petite nose with a sharp tip my nose started to turn more bulbous. This lead to a lot of bullying in school and in 9th grade my former best friend decided to made snide remarks about my nose (making downward motions showing that my nose is droopy, while hers is upwards). Unfortuneatly, she does objectively have a better nose than me, since she has nordic genes. Today, at age 20, I have a nose with a droopy tip regardless if I am smiling or not, with a small hump on the bridge. Regardless of people´s opinions I have debating of having a nose job from the ripe age of 14 (!).
When I have shared my beliefs of wanting a nose job, I have heard things like ”Oh, but no you are already so pretty so there can’t t be any improvement” or stuff like ”be happy with the way God give you” or stuff like ”you are my daughter you are insulting me, since you resemble me”. I have felt guilty for wanting to have a nose job, even though I truly believe it would make a difference for me.
The main issue is that when I do have my photos taken I constantly complain of how the nose ruins all pictures, cause I think my other facial features aren´t that bad. I hate my nose since it defines my ethnicity too much. I am from South Asia but have roots several generations back from Middle East, I don´t think I have thick skin since the hump is so visible even though it is so small.
My goals for a rhinoplasty is to get a nose with: a smooth slightly curved bridge with a pointy refined nose tip, nostrils that are showing more from the front view and no hanging tip while I smile.
My nose: ugly with bulbous tip, hump on bridge, droopy tip when smiling
Goal: Petite ”barbienose” , see Dotuzen Kroes nose (that´s basically the nose I want)
Are my goals realistic, what do you guys think? I am debating between going to a surgeon in Poland vs a surgeon in the US in December. Since both have had good results I don´t know who to pick.
Any questions? Please, comment below or pm me.
Anil Shah patients please come forward
Some rhinoplasty after results that I like
I also liked the result this girl received by Adam Kalecinski (http://www.realself.com/review/poland-in-rhinoplasty-surgery-harley-street-without-the-price-tag) but I am concerned that he might not be able to refine the nosetip the way as Dr. Shah has done. I don´t feel like choosing purely on cost...

Quote from Dr. Adam Kalecinski (SEE PHOTO)
Please, see the attached photo. I am not sure how I should react to this, I think that all before and after result pictures are natural, Dr. Adam seems to favour rounded nosetips with no hump on the bridge. I have only seen him perform sharp nosetips on two girls on his "Adam Surgeon Poland" facebook group, where all before and after patients can post their own photos. But I only liked two nosejobs he did (the one I have linked before and one of the girls on the page). The fact that he doesn´t feel that my nose is bulbous makes me worried, I attached the same photos that I have here. I am getting the feeling that he wouldn´t change my nosetip as much (it is already rounded), which is my main concern. Obviously, I understand that I won´t get a nose exactly like Doutzen but the answer makes me believe that he would not change my nosetip as much as I would like. So for you people out there searching for a natural looking nose or natural looking boobs, Dr. Kalecinski is great (seen many good examples of boob jobs made by him). He takes a fixed price of 2000 GBP for closed rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty, please see: http://www.realself.com/review/poland-in-rhinoplasty-surgery-harley-street-without-the-price-tag). Although, for me who wants a refined nosetip that goes along with my sharp features I do not feel that he is suitable...
Any comments? Am I being too judgemental? I like it when you guys comment and voice your opinions! Ask me anything.
Quote from Dr Adam Kalecinski (text version)
Just to confirm the surgeon has now reviewed your photos and he feels you are suitable for surgery. His recommendations are She does not have a bulbous tip based on the photos sent, but it can be reshaped into a bit more pointy one and upturned. Some muscle needs to be cut in order to ensure the does not droop when smiling. Also qualifies for osteotomy with hump removal and nostril correction. Of course she’ll not get a nose like Doutzen Kroes.
If you wish any more information please do not hesitate to contact me and if you would like to discuss dates for surgery please drop me an email confirming when you would like your surgery and I will confirm the available times.
Please not that your surgeon will be Dr Adam Kalecinski and he has over 15 years experience in performing Cosmetic Surgery.

Booked in skype consultation
Skype update about Dr. Anil Shah - contradictory statements
I am in fact kind of disapointed since I can´t pay that much for a nosejob to go overseas for a surgeon (Dr. Anil Shah) that would ONLY remove my hump, then the MAIN problem with my nose - that the nosetip dropps when I smile would still remain. It is also extremely evident compared to many other patients of his on realself that I have a worse before looking nose than them, see attached photos of model patient he performed a nosejob on in the gallery above. But I guess I am not white enough to deserve a barbie looking nose. That´s what I felt after the skype conversation. I am angry, sad and frustrated now.
Booked surgery with Dr. Adam in December 2014
Simulation I did myself - "before and after"
I will show these pictures to my surgeon so he can visualize the outcome.
Booked time with Dr. Adam Kalecinski in december 2014. I know he will do a great job with my nose, I am confident because he has performed surgeries on girls with similar noses like me and even girls who have the same sort of ethnicity. He seems knowledgable. Hopefully I will be able to save up money until the procedure, I will pay beforehand, but I am still in a very insecure state at the moment about financing my nose job.
