Ethnic Rhinoplasty (Finally Decided to Do It!)

Hey RS, So I have decided to take you along with...

Hey RS,
So I have decided to take you along with me on my 'nose journey' as I found the reviews, comments and pictures super helpful on here while I am going through this whole process, so I wanted to do the same as it might help someone else out there. Anyway, like many of you I have disliked my nose since I was very young. I was lucky enough not to be bullied by it when I was younger (which I am very surprised by) but to this day I still remember every single comment that anyone has ever made about my nose. It makes me feel insecure, unconfident in myself and paranoid (who wants to feel that way about themselves?!). I am of ethnic origin and typically most of us are not blessed with small dainty noses! My nose is very wide from all angles, I have big nostrils and my nose distracts away from my other features, which makes me unhappy. I am the girl who will take 100 selfies, delete 99 of them and then the 1 good one I do have will edit and filter the hell out of it! So after many years I have decided to finally go ahead with rhinoplasty as I want to get my confidence back and don't it want to have to constantly worry about what people are thinking about my nose. I have done some thorough research, especially into ethnic rhinoplasty as I want someone who specialises and has worked on noses like mine. At first I wanted to go to the US to do it as there are many surgeons that perform ethnic rhinoplasty, but then I had to be realistic in terms of cost (surgery, flights, accommodation etc) and finding the time to go to the US. I then began my search in the UK and I will be honest the choice is very limited when looking for a surgeon who specialises in ethnic rhinoplasty in the UK, I researched (stalked) many and booked consultations and then cancelled because something didn't feel right. But I think I may have found someone who can do what I am looking for and his name is Dr Lucian Ion. I have read countless positive reviews and most importantly he specialises in ethnic rhinoplasty, so I booked my consultation which is in November (so this post is a bit premature!) but I am very excited to finally be moving forward with my decision and will keep you updated :-)

P.s if anyone has had consultations or surgery with Dr Ion and is happy to share their experience I would be most grateful.

Hey Rs,

So after reading some reviews on here I discovered that some of you use a plastic stimulation app as a guide for what you want your nose to look like, so I thought I would give it a go and show you guys what I'm aiming for. So the pics on left are what my current nose looks like (big I know!!) and the pics on the right is what I am aiming for. These are some of the many pics I have created that I will show at my consultation. I don't know if he will be able to even achieve this but I think there is a more realistic expectation doing it this way as it is my own face. I am really trying my hardest not to create a 'wish list' of noses because I don't want to end up disappointed. There are some really beautiful noses out there that I would love to have! But at the end of the day those noses are on different faces, with different features that are built different to mine, so were I would love to have Beyoncé's nose, I know I just can't! :-(
I think if you know exactly what you want you want and can communicate that to the Dr the celebrity photos are not needed. But in saying that I have tried to find some before and after pics that are similar to mine and have picked out elements of those noses which I like and will also share at my consultation.
Anyway please let me know what you guys think :-)

Side Profile

I'm not quite sure how to add more pictures to my previous update, but here is side profile of my nose also. I like the length just hate how big, flared and bulky it is!
