bad case of wanderlust.
My mum paid the whole thing, she was very supportive about it and even though I wanted to pay at least half of it (which I earned doing summer jobs for a few years) she still insisted that she would pay for it. It was my present for the 18th b’day.
Surprisingly, it didn’t hurt at all. Not a tiny bit to be honest. It was just really hard to breathe the first 3-4 days, but no pain at all.
Mine costed around 2000€
i saw that you've had a nose surgery. i am thinking about this for years now (but not only my nose but also my chin) and i really want to, if only i weren't so scared (and if i had the money). i have a weak circulation and sometimes palpitations, so i don't know if an anesthesia is even more riskier? and i wanted to ask, did the doctor show you pictures of how you'd look like before the surgery so that you kind of "knew" what the result would look like (if everything went okay)?
thank you so much for answering and i hope you are happy with your nose now. :)
Hi. Well, I don’t think you should be scared. There is no pain at all and there are almost no risks. Anesthesia can be a problem but if you warn your doctor about your medical condition, there shouldn’t be any problem. I personally have less than 50 heartbeats in a minute and that’s really fucked because I could’ve had a heart attack during surgery. So it’s really important you tell your anesthesiologist everything you think he should know. And he didnt show me What my nose would look like because it costed extra money and I heard that those stimulations aren’t really good. I just brought my doctor a photo of Elisabeth Taylor’s nose and He tried to make my nose look like hers. And he did a great job :) so really dear, havr no worries. If you want it, do it. It was the best decision of my life. x
I realize everyone thinks that's some awful thing to do.
I was just bullied too much.
I'm extremely happy now, and confident, but I realize I could've been happy without it, too.
I saw that you posted the before and after,
and was wondering if that was you.
If so, congrats, but you are beautiful either way.
I feel sorry for you dear. But if your nose makes you feel confident about yourself, I think it was all worth it.
I was thinking a lot before I did my nose job. Because I’m still in high school, and people already don’t like me there. But then I realized it’s something I want, and if i’m gonna feel better about myself it’s the right thing to do. I haven’t told anyone about the nose job (except on here), and even if they realize I had one I really don’t care anymore. Those people mean nothing to me, and I won’t let their opinion affect my happiness. And, if anyone offered a nose job or any other kind of surgery to them, I’m quite sure they would kill to get it.
People only see things from one perspective and they judge, but that’s not my problem. I’m happy now and I couldn’t care less about their comments :)
My nose really didn’t match my face. It was huge and long and it had a little bump. I really hated it. And I’d get paranoid when somebody was looking at my profile. ugh
Oh no problem dear. I’m really glad your mum is supportive. And the price is really different; it depends on how much ‘work’ your nose ‘needs’. My surgery was really complicated because it included functional and aestethic changes of the nose. That’s why it was quite expensive.
And about surgeries going wrong… When it comes to the nose, that’s not really a problem. There are rarely any complications but it’s very important you run some tests before the surgery. But the doctor will tell you what you need to do. I needed to do various blood tests and an ECG. There is really no reason that this surgery could go wrong. You should just tell your doctor and the anesthesiologist everything about your medical history. It is very important because of the type of anesthesia you’ll get :) And well, that’s pretty much it.
My nose changed a lot in my opinion. I can finally breathe normally. But also, it’s about 1cm shorter, which is a lot when it comes to a nose. I’m a bit more pug-nosed now, and I really wanted that. My nose is still swallen but I can say that the doctor really respected my wishes and I now have a cute little nose :)
And I think you are beautiful. I hope you like your "new" nose.
Well first let me tell you, I honestly think this was the best decision of my life. I mean, my face is swallen and I have panda eyes and plasters over my nose, but I can see it. The nose. It looks beautiful. I, for the first time in my life, think I’m beautiful.
I was totally asleep but you need to know, there are huge risks, especially if you and your health don’t get along (like in my case). But I both wanted and needed this. I was prepared for a huge amount of pain but surprisingly, it didn’t hurt AT ALL. The only thing is that you can’t breathe through your nose. And getting used to using only the mouth is a bit hard. You constantly have a feeling of choking and you are thirsty all the time. You shouldn’t sneeze. And you should avoid a lot of chewing. That’s pretty much it.
And well the thing with my parents… You see, I have a really open-minded mum. That is really great sometimes. And actually she was the one that talked me into it. I mean the beauty part of the nose job. And I don’t regret a bit right now.
I don’t really know how you should ask your parents, I’m sorry. But don’t be scared. I mean, the worst thing they can say is no. And even if they say no, once you turn 18 and start making your own money it will be YOUR decision. Good luck dear :) If you need to talk about it, you know where my ask box is. x
