I got a nose job on my giant Jew nose back in 2002. It was an improvement anything would have been I mean it looked like a clown nose. However, it is far from perfect. It collapsed on one side and became crooked as time went on.
I recently had a revision by the same doc which was in his words a simple alar graft. I had high hopes but it hasn't turned out so well. The scar tissue has madd it very flat on that side and the graft is showing through my skin. The other side of my nose is severely dented and makes for a large shadow. I wonder sometimes if I should have just kept the darn Jew nose I was born with.
Anyway, I am finding after reading hundreds of experiences and doctors opinions that nose jobs are a major crap shoot. It's funny to me to see that most people that are happy with their nose jobs are usually people who have recently had it done. They haven't had time to have their nose collapse, twist etc.
Doctors always have the same lines for people that are unhappy. Oh it will get better it's just swelling or it's easily fixable. It also seems that every doctor has many horror stories that go along with their work. No doctor has a perfect record. Some worse than others. For doctors who don't have complaints I have found they have just started their practice or have gag orders. As the old saying goes if its just to good to be true it probably is.
I guess my situation could be worse I could have started out with a perfectly good nose that I ruined. I have seen that many times on this site. So many people have perfectly good noses that they went and had screwed up. At least I can honestly say my nose was always a mess.
I guess my point is the whole nose job thing is a scam. The 74 percent of the people that say it's worth it. Well I say just have them wait a few years and see how happy they are in the years to come. If you are considering a nose job please think about why you are doing it. If it is for something very minor like a little bump or its just a little bit big. DON"T DO IT. Every doctor says they can help they just want your money. They all have the same canned lines and sorry they are all full of it. I really doubt that 74 percent of people are actually happy with their results especially in the long run. I am sure the numbers are much much lower. You don't know how many people work for these doctors who are leaving reviews for them. The photos they show on their websites are most likely photo shopped and they usually show results only one year later. I just really think the WHOLE BUSINESS OF NOSE JOBS IS A SCAM!!!!
Doctors promising things they know they cannot deliver. Anyways I needed to vent. I am sure I am going to get people saying I am so happy with my nose job etc. etc. And I say I am happy for you albeit jealous. But I do think these are the rare cases. Not the norm.
