Can a poor-result buccal excision be fixed? (Photo)

I had a buccal excision done several years back that left me with a masculine, chiseled looking jawline (I am female). I deeply regret allowing the surgeon to talk me into this... READ MORE

Should I do a revision? (Photos)

Had a rhinoplasty done 10 yrs ago and have been dissatisfied.  I felt that I shouldn't have done it in the first place (my nose was FINE), but I was a dumb teenager who... READ MORE

Thanks so much! That's what I'm afraid of--obsessing over something in the pursuit of perfection and causing a worst problems in the long run. Thanks for sharing your experience! READ COMMENT
