  THE NOSE JOB - by Editor
On a hunt for the perfect noseNULL If you have been toying with the idea of going in for a nose job, here�s what you should know.




Your nose sits pretty (or not so pretty) at the centre of your face, and one that is too large, bumpy or bulbous can take away from otherwise attractive features. Here�s how you can tell if you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty - or a nose job.


Do you really need a nose jobNULL

Firstly, understand that you are by no means the best person to answer this question. Not only have you seen your reflection in the mirror millions of times, but you have also mentally magnified every imperfection in your face and body. That bump on the nose that seems so glaring to you may be invisible to most others, including your closest friends. So take a few honest opinions before committing yourself to surgery and remember, what you consider as ugly often passes unnoticed by others. After all, those minor imperfections in your nose could be your sex appeal!

If you have been upset about your nose for many years, if it makes you self-conscious and affects your confidence, you could perhaps consider going in for a nose job.


Are you in good healthNULL

Needless to say, persons with certain health problems may not be able to withstand the demands surgery places on their bodies. You need to be fairly fit and healthy before going in for surgery.


Are you psychologically stableNULL

A nose job can have emotional ramifications. Results from the surgery will not be immediate. You will have swelling, and may develop blotches on the face. This swelling will go down after a few weeks. Thus, you will definitely come out looking worse for wear in the weeks following the surgery. It can take anywhere from a month to two for you to fully recover and enjoy your new nose! A person who is not mentally strong may go into depression when their reflection in the mirror day after day seems to only get worse.


Do you have realistic expectationsNULL

Often, a person undergoes a nose job after years of debating whether or not he should have one. As such, his expectations tend to be extremely high. Remember, your life is not going to change after you get a nose job. In fact, chances are, people may not even realise you have had plastic surgery! Add this to the fact that recovery time is slow, painful and uncomfortable, and you have a huge chance of being disappointed and depressed after the surgery.


Will the benefits outweigh the risks in your caseNULL

Surgery is not a matter to be taken lightly. Risks associated with rhinoplasty are very few, but make sure the benefits outweigh these risks. You are likely to develop redness on your face, and at times, although not often, these red spots can be permanent. However, they can easily be concealed with makeup. A lot of people swear that they prefer a little redness to an ugly nose. Others report increase in allergies, nosebleeds and side effects to the anaesthesia.

Comments:   I have a Fat nose like wide and im in my teenage years so you know that can be tuff. I dont really get teased about it i mean somehow guys do like me and try and talk to me i think my nose is growing into my face but i still have low self esteem. Sometimes people will make comments like kendi u got a big nose but u look good with it or u got a fat nose then the rude people might say dang gurl u got a BIG nose as if i dont know then this one boy was making front of me in front of everybody he was like with yo big a** nose i dont mean to curse but thats what he said. When i leave highschool im planning having a nose job bc im doing acting well im doing it now (stuff in my local area) but i still want a nose job. I hope my story helped anyone with the same problem your not alone i thought i was for a second but im not dont worry about those who tease KARMA is a pain!!

Comments:   Im 18 years old.....bascially i´ve had a big nose all my life i thought maybe i would grow into to it but unfortuantely i have not...I´ts really ruined my self confidence, i really have low self esteem, even like goin to the hair salon to get a new hair styl and the mall to get a new oufit does not work anymore...I feel like i just get put down again...because i´ll just be at the mall or something someone will just try to put me down..cuz ill hear them sayin "yo that girls got a big nose!" and laugh, i mean i noe im grown nd im not a baby.. but it hurts to see people talkiin about you like that.. i just try to accept my self...but in reality an oversized nose is just not attractive.. i love my self and if i ever had to change anything it would be my nose and i would be the happiest person...i´ve also realized that people i don´t even noe tend to judge me first.. and not even letting there be a chance of them getting to kno me.. or myself vice versa..people can be so cruel..and Kendi.. i relly appreciate that u cud come out and let ppl noe there not alone.

Comments:   i have a big nose. and im acceping that, well at least trying to. sometimes my friends make fun of me and i know there kidding but it really hurts me inside. its like people judge me right when i turn to the side cause they see that huge thing in their face. i am 15 now and planning to get a nose job this summer. i have done my reseach and no the concequences of it but in the end i know the outcome will be good, and maybe people will like me more now. if you really want a nose job done just do it, and get research done because in the end believe me it will be worth it.

Comments:   You can have a nose job when your face is fully developed (13 14 for girls) and as long as your parents agree. otherwise you will have to wait till your older and you can afford it yourself. The only way to make your nose appear slimmer without surgery is to put a darker makeupfoundationshadow on the sides. You can use the internet to find out exactly how loads of beauty websites explain it. I strongly suggest not having a nose job unless your nose is very bad. Dont have one just coz you have a small bump on it! As this can give you lots on character and make you pretty and you will only realise this when you have had it taken off and its too late!! a dead straight turnedup nose is not a pretty one. and remember most surgons will agree to do it even if you dont really need one so please please please listen to people (freinds,family) if they tell you you dont need one.

Comments:   ALSO..... every human beings nose gets wider...alot wider...when they smile...you will have to have your nostrils cut open and sewed closer if you dont like it...most common for black people. BUT you have to look at them when you are not smiling and think will it look stupid if they were narrower?? Or you can try make up. If you are really obsessed and people tell you your nose is fine and if you fell it is seriously affecting your social life and relationships then you may have an image problem such as BDD, although its hard to admit. I strongly suggest looking into this before you get surgery. Type it into your search engine.

Comments:   okay i got my nose done and last tuesday i got my cast removed...i hate how my nose looks!!! but i understand that it will take a lil while till the swelling goes down.So im hoping that it looks good afterward... anyways the procedure is painless!!! and though people miight say its not a big thing..it definitley is i mean this is ur face were talking about..i had a bump on my nose which made my nose look soo bigg, it was horrible..i still got many guys to look my way so in way i guess it wasnt all that bad and maybe even gave me a lil charm ,and made me look diffrent than all the other girls out there. Even so now that my cast is off i feel really uglyy!! i wasnt that confident to begin with but i never thought i was hideous..but with my new nose i wanted to cry about how i looked and im not being dramatic..this is my face,i have to live with this the rest of my life!Bottom line if ur nose isnt that bad dont get it!!!!it cost alot of money and its a long healing process..im praying that the swelling goes down alot cuz right between my eyebrows looks wider than before and my tip which is my biggest concern looks big..not too big..but big! and goin into the surgery i said i didnt want my nose to be that pointy so i hope my surgeon didnt just skip doing my tip all together...ill write about how my nose is comin along later if anyone is intrested but if anyone out there has any tips about making my swelling go downn it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.please and thank you3

Comments:   Hi, I´m 20 and I already had plastic surgery when I was 17. Ayeasha: Don´t do it that early!!! You will still ´grow´ and your look will change. If you have one now, it will keep on changing and maybe it will look worse then! Better give it some more time, if you still want it then, you can still do it. I´ve had mine too early, it was not my nose, but also in the face and now I have to do another one because it changed for the very worst. :( I wish I hadn´t done it that early, it wouldn´t be that difficult to change now! (AND this time I will take more time to look for the best doctor and spend maybe more money on it!!! ) ) And also, be careful! I´ve had one, and I guess, I´ve noticed there, that I don´t have to ´accept´ my body and face the way it looks. I´m gonna have another one. (this one is necessary, not for health, but for me!) but I´m gonna have more than one cause I´ve found a new spot that ´needs to be changed´ every time I take a look in the mirror. I bet if I could see you, Ayeasha, I would not see what you see! Every day I see people on the street and think ´omg, how beautiful they are!´! You wrote, sometimes you want to cry because of your nose. I can totally understand your feelings but I have cried every day! Every night! And still I´m crying! All I hang to is, one day I´ll have my perfect face. People don´t make just fun of me they torment me everyday and if i don´t met anybody, they torment me in my nightmares. They called (and still call) me very very nasty names! ...To be honest: I´m jealous of you, because, and I´m sure, this will sound silly to you, but I wish I had ´just´ a big nose. It´s my whole face! It´s genetic in my case, i have it from my father and I´m a girl, so it´s even worse for me because girls just *HAVE* to look beautiful. All I can tell you that is not about feelings is: If you do it at such a tender age, it will NOT last!! (do you really want this then? I wish I had waited and I was older than you, I was 17!)

I dont ever want a fake nose now! =] First you should always make sure that you axually need a nose job before taking that very serious operation. Grow up abit, and then decide. Figgure out in your mid 20´s or something. You cant go back if you get a nose job. A waste of money too...

Comments:   I NEED ADVICE PLEASE! I´m 15 and I have this bump on my nose. If you were to look at my nose from the front it looks like diamondshaped and if you were to look at it from the side, I feel there is this HUGE bump, like sticking out. I feel that everyone can see it and I´ve been made fun of sooo much, for the past 56 years and my mom said I´m WAY TO YOUNG. I don´t know how to convince her that this is my high school years and their going to be ruined by my EXTREMELY low selfconfidence in myself. I cry so much about it and I just would like advice on what I should do. PLEASE HELP ME

Comments:   "s" from "sss": This´ the best comment I´ve been reading here! :) You´re absolutely right! It´s a very intelligent opinion and we all should really take it serious and agree! "miranda" from "uglynoseville": Nobody can tell you any reason to make it now! It will do no good. Your nose will still change, you are really too young! I´ve had ps too early (i was 17!!!) that is 2years older than you, but still it had changed! Now it´s worse and I wish I hadn´t done it that early. Anyway, read "s" form "sss"´s post!!! I know it´s hard, I know how cruel kids can be, but one day you will not care about it anymore...trust me, today I don´t care about what had happened a few years ago... If they make fun of you, ask if they are perfect!! I´m really NOT for violence, but if somebody isn´t stopping to make fun of and is really hurting you, maybe you should kick him in the ***! ) ...don´t have a nose job now, you will regret it sooner or later, for in a few years, when you´re older you will either think your nose was okay, maybe even really beautiful (because it´s you, and it makes you a special, beautiful person mainstream is really ugly!!!) or it could also change for the worse...it´s not worth it...!! :(
