Finally booked my Rhinoplastry 10yrs of wanting it! I have a hump on the bridge of my nose and i also think it looks long ive hated my nose every since i can remember and it didnt help when i was 16 and a boy said my nose makes me look like a rat!
i always try to hide my side profile and it holds me back a lot i always feel ugly even thou people say theres nothing wrong with it. As you only live once ive decided to take the plunge and have the hump taken away and my nose just shortened a tad (Do not want it to turn upwards)

Thought i would give an update as i am coming up to my 7 months after my surgery. Well i still love the outcome of my nose it looks really natural and most people havent noticed which is a really good thing as it must look natural which i wanted as i still wanted to look like me! its only when i show close friends the before pictures that they notice how diffrent it is, i havent really got much more to say as im busy enjoying my life feeling more confident with my nose, its the best thing i ever did!! I still really recommend Dr Oelbrandt as he did exactly what i wanted and is always there to answer any questions i have. I have uploaded some recent pics!
