Should i get a nose job?

Question: I'm 15 and my nose has gotten a lot bigger and more bulbous recently and i think i might need a nose job. Do you think i should get one?

Answer: You should wait until your nose stops changing before having a nose job. It would be a shame to have the surgery and then need it again in a couple years because your nose is still growing, as are the other bones in your face (jaw, cheeks, chin, etc). Many surgeons recommend waiting until you're a little older, like 18.

  2. I'm 14 years old too, and you can be whatever age as long as you have parents consent, I advise you to wait til after your 16 so you know your face has stopped growing, and I totally know what your going through, just don't worry about it to much

  4. Britt, wait till your high school is over. and really think about having a nose job done. getting into surgery is not always a good idea. research before havin one.

  5. OMG! My nose is the worst ever! It's huge and horrible and I really want a nose job and Im 14..I've been looking on the internet and apparently we can have one at 14..But Im not sure if I should wait until Im 16! But I really cant wait because it ruins my life! If I had a nose job I would be soo much more confident, because I dont like speaking in class because everyone looks round at you..and I dont like drawing attention to myself! I havent had a boyfriend for like my whole entire life..because no one wants to go out with someone with a huge nose..I HATE it sooo much!!! I hate the way I look, I wish I could just choose what I look like, because then I would change EVERYTHING! :( :(

    1. I have a big nose too, and I used to let this fact bother me. Like you, I was very self-conscious and nervous regarding me appearance. However, now that I'm in HS, I realize that confidence probably won't come from a nose job or any other cosmetic surgery. If you are confident in yourself than you won't feel like you need to do this expensive and complicated procedure. :)

  6. After hearing everyones comments, I feel so much better. Emily, I can understand why you feel that way. But if you think about it, nothing's stopping you from having a nose job. Even if you cant have one intell your older, at least you know you will have one. So dont stress over it. Just think how great you will feel and look after the surgery. You will just show everyone that your just as good as they are.

  8. Dear girls, I just wanted to comment on all of you. I've definitely been where you are when it comes to feeling off about your nose. When I used to be younger I would try so many ways to make my nose look smaller, (ie. tilting my head in certain positions to avoid people looking at my profile, taking pictures at certain angles, going tanning so my features would look smaller etc, etc) but it wasn't a way to live. Constantly thinking about those things sucks and I really really wanted plastic surgery. Did I get it? No, and I wouldn't recommend it either. Not in high school at least. Around tenth grade I made a conscious decision to stop caring, I quit doing EVERYTHING that covered my nose and just dealt, and you know what? I'm the greatest for it. My confidence shot up and I feel like I am perfect now. You see, everyone knows what you look like so when you are scared of getting up in front of people because you think they are staring at your face you're wrong. They've seen you before and they are aware of what your nose looks like, it's truly not what they're focusing on. But I know it's really a self image thing. Dears, give yourself a couple of years and you'll realize that everyone is maturing and things like a nose won't be such a problem, to others nor to you. Don't stress so much on it and give people something else to focus on like how great your eyes are, how funny you are, how outgoing, how great your body is. People look at you as a whole, not in certain segments, so highlight your positives so they'll take notice of those. Now I know you guys have heard this before but you can take my word for it, getting a nose job isn't at all necessary as you feel it is now. I also know I'm sounding preachy, as if I'm trying to deter you from something horrid. I have to admit that sometimes I do think about it but not in a negative way, and I wouldn't mind a nose job at all. But before you girls dive into something I want you to get to that stage, where you wouldn't mind either way if you got one. Then you'd know that you were doing it for the right reasons and not because your emotions got the best of you. Just hold on for a little longer, wait till your body stops growing so your plastic surgery won't go from great to mayhem when your body is done developing. If you guys are determined to get one, for physical and social reasons, I'd say wait till either the summer after your senior year of highschool, or your winter break of your freshman year of college. Haha and if any of you think I'm some really old person just scolding, I'm 18 and in college :) So anyways, good luck with everything and although you guys are freaking out, I bet you're all cute as hell ;)

  9. I am almost 16 and my nose is horrible. I have tried getting past it but I am constantly reminded by boys how huge it is and how that is the only thing keeping me from being beautiful. I have been considering plastic surgery but I am fearful of having it going bad, the pain, and having my nose still grow. I know it would boost my confidence greatly. Also, I have bad bad sinus issues and I was thinking that having this done might help me breath better. Any suggestions?

  11. hi, im 15 and i really REALLY hate my nose, it so flat and big...it just wrecks my face. i have done EVERYTHING like pegging my nose at night, shoving rubber up there so it will hold and as i said everything. i dont get teased i have a lot of friends... but they are all so pretty making me feel like the ugly old thing in the corner but if i could have a nose job i would be cute and confident and maybe blend in. i've already saved up money for a nose job but i dont know when i could get it done. maybe when im 18 but that mean when i look back a pics from formals i will always see my self as ugly and i dont really want that. plus my skin has a habit of scaring... it goes away but really slowly will this affect me when having a nose job.

  13. I'm 16 years old, and I have wanted my nose done for the longest time now. The appearance of my nose honestly controls half of my life. I hide it behind my hair. I have bangs that cross over and cover half of my face. I haven't dated anyone in a while, because I'm too self conscious, and worried that they won't look at me the same way or think I'm pretty after they see my nose. You see, I was born with a crooked nose, inherited from my father. Theres a huge hump on it. From the front, you can see how crooked the nasal bone is. And the tip slopes downward. From a left 90 degree view, it doesn't look bad. It almost looks cute and normal. From the right, it looks huge and masculine, and the bone covers a big part of my face and makes the rest of my face look weird. I have a deviated septum as well, making it awfully hard to breathe at times. If I were to get that fixed, I would want the rest of my nose fixed as well. My family however, is going through some tough times with money. With my situation, is there any way that insurance could take care of my face? I'm so insecure about it..I think I'd be pretty too, if I had a new nose. I'd be fine with my looks. But I feel like the ugliest girl in the world because of my nose, and really want it taken care of before high school is over. No one would be able to tell anyway, because they hardly see any of my nose as it is, due to my bangs. Does anybody know how to help me?

  14. Hello girls, I really feel for you all. I'm now 58 and at 16, I saw myself as the ugliest girl in town - because of my nose. It was big on a small face. I went through the agony you describe. I saved and had surgery at 21 years. It was not what I had hoped for but not a disaster either. it lifted my confidence. but, if i had not been obsessive about it (and we are at 16) I might have left is as it was and been happy about it. My son has exactly the same nose and it's ok on a boy. My daughter has a lovely shaped nose which I'm so releived about. They both has issues with their noses at 15,16 and I never made any comments other than reassuring ones. They are now happy with their looks. My mother had a big nose too and really put the idea in my head. So, try to leave your decision until later. I know it's hard - good luck, you're all lovely girls :)

  16. I'm 18 and i've wanted a nose job since i was about 14. ive saved money and my parents will let me borrow the rest from them to get it done in a few months. im very nervous but ive thought about it for so long that i know im making the right decision. just know that u will go through hell recovering for a few weeks afterwards, and ask urself if ur nose is THAT important to u. for me it is. whenever i meet new people i always feel like theyre never gonna forget me because of my nose. ive also never dated a guy who i thought was gorgeous just standard looking guys and im pretty sure this had to do with my confidence and not just my looks. and even though everyone already says this... dont let boys be the only reason ur doing this! if he only likes u for ur looks he WILL leave u and WONT be there forever. but like i said mine is mainly for confidence issues

    so doing this is the right thing for me. i want to do it early because i just want to be able to live my life not constantly thinking about my nose. wish me luck... and good luck deciding whether u need a nose job too

  18. I'm 15, and I can see that in this post.. teenagers are very self conscious about their noses. I guess I'm one of them. I have one of those Asian noses, and I feel that my nose was just picked out of nowhere and was stuck onto my face carelessly. I can't seem to face people because of my nose, and I hate smiling because it makes me nose even wider than it already is. I want to fix this asap, but it's unfortunate to know that I have to wait until I'm 18. I seriously can't survive another 3 years.. unless within that time I learn to accept it, which is merely possible.

  19. Reading all these comments I see so many similarities in myself. I have a big nose also, and I'm constantly getting picked on it for. To be honest, i would have a perfecty perfect nose, but during elementary school I got hit a lot on my nose during school, or just playing around with relatives, I would always end up getting hit on my nose. Bringing it to what it looks like now. And just like a few of you, I've never been in a relationship or kissed someone. I have such low self-esteem, because everytime a guy gets close to me he ends up leaving, and I always bring it back to my nose. I would feel much prettier if i had a normal nose. And I get told how gorgeous I am, a lot, but I fel like it's all just sympathy. My parents talked to my doctor about taking the bump off my nose, and they said to wait until im 18, which is in 3 years. I have my good days, and my bad, some days i feel beautiful and other days (most) I dont. But I think waiting it out is a better idea than messing my nose up even more. I just dont know how to deal with this emotional pain anymore :(

  20. I'm 15 and in the past 2 years my nose has gotten extremely unattractive and big. my other facial features are attractive but my nose is like a brick wall i run into, with my friendships, my self esteem, and my relationships. It is a huge nuisance. i have braces and i'm not sure if i should wait till they take em off. I really want to do it this summr

  21. I'm 14 and I hate my nose. I would be completely perfect with my look if my nose was better. I never get teased about it and when I look ahead in the mirror it looks regular. Then, on the side it goes out and at the tip of the bone it goes down. I'm way too embarrassed to mention it to my mom because she'll just say oh you're beautiful but I really don't feel the same. People do tell me I'm pretty but I would actually believe them if my nose was smaller and shaped better. My mom and dad's noses are perfect and I don't know how I got my nose. My friends noses are like perfect and then there's me with the messed up one. When I get older it's just going to wayyy worse. I hate smiling because when I do it looks even more bigger. Any help please? ;(

  22. I nknow what you are all feeling!!!! I am a very intelligent 30 year old woman but sometimes I feel that no one takes me seriously because of my large crooked nose. What is really hurtful is that I hear people talking about my big nose and passiing comments about it - I have alovely figure, am tall, have gorgeous eyes and a lovable personality but the only thing that some people notice about me is my big nose. I am so self concious about it that when I meet someone new I try to hide it with my hair. Sometimes when I am walking in the street I take the long way home because I am afraid to walk in a crowd lest someone should comment about how big my nose is. There were even instances when peopl when fun of me as I wasd crossing the road - an I am not imagining these things they truly happen. This really hurts and it has affected my whole personality. I have a three year old girl and when I look at her I pray to God that her nose won't be as big as mine when she grows up. I do not want her to suffer as I am suffering. If her nose becomes like mine and she becomes self concious about it I would encourage her to have rhinoplasty. With regards to men -I have a husband that has accepted me as I am - he sees beyond my big crooked nose - but when I will have the opportunity I would surely chnage it - I do not want any drastic changes - I just want it to look normal because I hate it when people refer to me as "the one with the big nose" and I feel that they are laughing when they are looking at me. To all those young people who feel uncomfortable with their nose - one word of advice - if you feel that your nose is determining your life and you have to possiblity to change it, wait till you are at least 18, find a really good surgeoun talk it over and then if you fell that you are making the right choice go for it.

  24. My nose is CRAZY BIG. It distracts everyone from seeing me as a person. Im not one to believe looks are everything, but I think that looks are to attract and personality is to keep.



    When i was younger my nose was fine but in the last 2 years it has grown an incredible amount, whenever someone sees me its the first thing they notice. I want to get this nose job for myself and my self esteem, not for anyone else. I always get teased for my nose and I get looked down on because of it. Its not fair, being frowned upon because of genetics.


    As soon as I can afford one, I will get that nose job.

  25. Hi I am 14 also, My nose is just horrible and its dominating my life all i can think about is if people are looking at it and judging it every time i see it in a picture i want to throw up. So many time ive seen a photo and wanted to cry only because of my nose all of my friends have cute little noses and i have a long narrow roman nose i would have a different nose any day. My self confidence is so low, i feel like im not excepted in some ways purely because of my nose it dominates my face. Every time i look in the mirror its just all i can concentrate on. I am definitely getting a nose job but for now could anyone please give me some tips on how to make it look better for now anyway thanks x

  26. Hi, I am 16 years old and I have a severely large nasal hump. In social environments I am utterly terrified of talking because I am so self conscious of my abnormal nose. Honestly, I would like to believe that the majority of people aren't that shallow, but they are. I am strongly contemplating the option of rhinoplasty but it is extremely expensive. Can my insurance cover all or part of my surgery's cost?

  27. I don't know if any of you have heard of the nose huggie or nose right device, but they actually do work for bulbous noses. You have to wear them for 15 minutes a day and within one month you will be able to see a significant difference. Most of the promotional websites claim that it only takes two weeks to see the effect, but for better results it takes at least a month. For those who don't want to go under the knife to correct their large nasal tip I highly recommend this product.

  32. Hi everyone so ive spent 10 minutes reading this whole thing and i know plastic surgery is a stupid way to go but i never really liked my nose, actually i did till my own parents and grandmother pointed it out. so after that i was really self concious and didnt want to go to school for it, but lucky for me at the age of 13 i had something that distracted everyone away from my nose and that was my boobs because i was thin and had ginormus boobs and i hated that too but in other ways i didnt hate it because it was distracting everyone from the the big thing on my face.. :(

    hahaha well im pumped up now because my nose wasnt as bad as i thought because i had boyfriends... 43 boyfrinds sense i was 11
    and i never really said to my self ("wow if i can get a guy this hot then why am i tripping over my nose") because i never thought about it that way.. im 14 now and i feel better about my nose but not as great as i want to, so sense my i have amazing grandmother she saved money for me to get my surgery on the summer of my 16th birthday which i will still be fifteen because im getting the surgery in june and by birthday is in july and this is because se is taking me to south america for this surgery.. i wont say im not excited or scared because im both. im worried it might come out wrong and i have to deal with school or that im not going to wake up etc. but im excited because it might just come out perfect. so yeah basically my point is here that you can think of a reason to make your self feel better as long as its not a lie because i know there are some days for every guy or girl that you just look in the mirror and say "o wow i look pretty today" or "oh im lookin good" or hot which ever, but yeah we have those days and those are the days that are true.. so yeah change your nose but also think about how you can effect your self first in a possitive way :)

  33. by the way, i talked to my grandma and had to convince her for months that i should get this done and also an idea would be it to ask your parents for 5 $ of lunch money everyday on the week days (but just save it) and by the time your 16 when is the earliest age you should get it (you can get it before but chances are that that by the time you 16 it will look crooked or bad) you'll have 3,800 which is more than enough for a nose job. so there you go.. options :) hahaha i hope everything ges better and if any of you ever want to talk im 14 and im on facebook dorisdeulloa@yahoo.com or on myspace catherine@athala.com

  34. I feel everyone's pain. I urge everyone to hold on a little while longer (at least until you are fully developed and have your own financial means) before you make a final decision to go through with any surgery. I am not condoning rhinoplasty, however, I understand how the thought could cross your mind. During this time of living with yourself as you are, please remember that you are precious in the eyes of God exactly the way you are. Even if you get your nose fixed, there will always be another issue that will come to your mind as a problem (which very well may not be a true problem accept to you - just think, what if you were paralyzed and had to depend on others to walk or eat or even use the bathroom? Or what if you didn't even have a nose like some, who have been disfigured?). So until you get stronger and not care about what other people (who are imperfect too) think about you, you may never be truly happy unless you become thankful for what you have already. Blessed are those who suffer and are persecuted for his sake, after all you are made in his image. God knows your struggles, he knows your pains. He is with you when you get made fun of. He will give you a great recompense if you remain strong and endure. Just call on him for help anything, and he will bring you out with more victory and blessings than ever before. Never cease in seeking God who is Jesus Christ. Tell him all of your problems in prayer, and he will speak to your heart, give you direction and defeat your enemies.

  35. I'm 14 and I have a huge Armenian nose, it is horrible! I hate it so much I haven't discovered anything so horribly ugly in my whole life, When I was about 12/13 it wasn't that bad, yeah it stuck out a little but it looked kind of cute and I was actually quite happy with it and it never seemed to bother me, I was never teased or picked on about it so I felt very pleased with my image. Until I reached 14, that was it! My beauty, my confidence and self esteem just vanished all because of my HORRIBLE nose... I dont know what happened! It just grew huge, maybe it because of my hormones or my body changing? I have no idea but I HATE my nose with a very strong passion and I REALLY REALLY want a nose job, so so sooo bad. I now get bullied at school and picked on about and even boys tease me! I was in the queue at school once and these hot guys came over to me and said "look at the size of that nose." and I literally felt liek crying and running away, ever since I turned 14 my life had changed rapidly, I get depressed alot all because of my nose, I dont even take pictures anymore because my nose ruins them! I have done alot of research on plastic surgery and rhinoplasty etc.. And I have actually and seriously decided I really do want a nose job, without a doubt. But the only problem is I live with my dad, and he is completely against cosmetic surgery and I dont work I dont have the money so what can I do! I dont wanna wait til I'm 18, I want it done at 16, early as possible! Please help me any advice would do! Thanks. :'(

  38. I never really noticed my nose until I was about 14 years old. At about 16 I really started to hate my nose and wanted a nose job. Right now I am 19 and I am going to get a consultation over the summer. And to all the girls under 18 I strongly urge you to wait. I did wait but unfortunately my friend got one when she was 16 and her nose grew and she had to get a second nose job to fix it. And if you truly want one like I do you will wait to make sure nothing goes wrong.

  40. Hey i'm 16 and i'm pretty much done growing(my nose!he he). so... my nose isn't huge, its just long. its sort of similar to Rachel's from Glee, except mine is like, a degree or so worse. And when i smile i feel like my upper lip disappears behind it! yeah, i get picked on too about it and am really looking into getting a nose job but i'm afraid i'll disappoint my family, and they'll shun me for the rest of my life (i don't know if they'll actually do that). I'd rather wait until i was out of high school b/c...i don't know it just seems a better time and place to have it done. By what age are you allowed to have a nose job without parental consent?

  41. I am 16 years old and I had a nose job a year ago. My nose was very wide and I did it for ME not for anyone else. Before you go rushing to a plastic surgeon here are some things to think about. It was very painful I was swollen like a pumpkin I couldn't do contact sports for 6 weeks, I had big black eyes and they eventually went away but I looked like the exorcist because there was still blood in my eyes, many of you probablly don't know but it takes one full year for your nose to heal and for you to see what the end result is, I basically looked akward my whole entire sophmore year.But I love my nose I feel beautiful and I did it for the right reasons not for anyone else but myself and I had the constant support of my family and friends the whole time, so before you make such a huge choice really think about it beforehand.

  42. I am turning 16 very soon, within less than a month. And I know how you guys feel. I HATE MY NOSE! No matter what I try to accept it but I just can't! I will admit I have a nice body, nice eyes and curved lush lips, When I was younger I had NO PROBLEM with it, in fact it was curved and cute! It was when I was 14 I noticed it was getting longer&bigger! I do get a lot of guys attention and i'm so glad I have a great boyfriend who loves my looks more than anything. BUT I STILL HATE MY NOSE. Whenever I'm not giving a guy the attention he want's or If he pisses me off &he get's mad they always say mean comments like "You'd be the hottest thing ever if it wasn't for your long nose!" or they would just call me mean names like "Witch" or "Bird-girl" (Cause my nose is long and has a bump on it). I talked to my mom about it and she says when i'm 18 I can get it fixed as a graduation present. &I understand that. Me and my boyfriend want a future together so why let my nose bother me now? I am extremely self conscious but I rather wait until my face has fully developed &That's the best thing for ya'll to do. Remember, you are NOT going through this alone. So many people have the same issue as you do. But I am DEFIANTLY looking in to rhinoplasty later on in the future to boost my self conscious. :)

  43. Im 14 and i'm having a nose job in 4 days and im so excited. Don't ruin your teenage years with no confidence have it done.Do it in summer and by the time you go back to school everyone would of forgotten how your nose looks. The people who say your nose is still growing until your 16 are talking rubbish. Most surgeons will do a girls nose at 14 and a boys at 16. Hope this helps !!

  57. hey everyone... ive hated the way i look since i was about 5. when i was 12 i started considering surgery, and when i was 13 i had decided for sure that i wanted some procedures done. the most prominent problem is, of course, my nose. im 20 now, i haven't changed my mind, and if things go well i might be getting a rhinoplasty about 3 months from now. i already went to two consultations with two different surgeons and picked one after years of research. im pretty comfortable with my choice. i know what everyone is going through, im still going through that. i was never really made fun of about my nose because where i live most people have hideous noses, but it always hugely affected my confidence. im in a 5.5 year loving relationship; im not doing this to impress others, but to satisfy my own vanity. everyone, wait till ur at least 18. your face changes, seriously. not necessarily dramatically, but enough for the results to be affected by the passage of only a couple years. trust me, if i had done this a few years ago i would have probably regretted it. granted, it would have been a huge improvement from before, but, being the vain perfectionist i am, i would have opted for a second rhino, and it's a much more complicated procedure to do a rhinonplasty on a previously operated nose, even with the best surgeon. so sit tight and dont give a shit about what people say, just look ahead and when your facial bone structure has completely developed, if u still wanna get it done, go for it. i read a lot of comments from people who seem to be worried about what people in school will think. dont give a shit! the whole point is to do this for you and you alone. if this is not the case, wait until you have enough confidence (in that sense) to do it without caring about social 'consequences'. good luck to you all!

    When i turn 18 i am planning on getting my nose job.
    Well that's it. I just wanted to complain.

  61. Hey guys, I'm 15 and I've been thinking about a nose job too. Me and my mom started talking about it and she supports me on my idea. I don't totally hate my nose, but I did break it when I was younger and it still has a bump in the middle. I also have breathing troubles through my nose and I heard nose jobs help fix them. Do you think it's a good idea for me to look into a nose job?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Heyya people xxx I'm in the same position as Shay since my mom is taking me to the doctors to get a nose job. I have broken my nose severel times and now my parents have agreed to get me a nose job. Shay you should get a nose job if you feel like you need a nose job like me.

  65. Hey im 14 and I reallllly hate my nose. Every other girl at school has like a perfect nose except for me. I got my school pictures back a few weeks ago, and my nose like messed up my picture. And sometimes when like a guy is talking to me I can't look/talk to them to long because I'm afraid they are looking at my nose. Im so self conscious about it but, it makes me feel a whole lot better that other girls have the same problems as me on here. My mom and I have been talking about me getting a nose job for a while now. She said that she would be fine with it but she wants me to wait until im older because, my face might change and stuff like that. When would be a good age to get a nose job? And should I even get one at all? ( I have soooo many other questions but I really don't want to type em all)

  66. Hi, I'm 23 years old and I experienced similar situations as a teen. I had a huge ethinic nose. I did my research and I had 2 rhinoplasty surgeries done, one when I was 16 and one when I was 20. I had the surgeon make gradual changes so it would be less obvious. I really didn't want anyone to know about my procedures due to the stigma associated with plastic surgery. I used to be shy, awkward, and incredibly unhappy in highschool. I never had a bf in highschool and did not even go to prom because I was so self consious. I was patient, saved $$ for both procedures and it has truly changed my life! I know as a teen it seems hopeless but hang in there! I now at 23 years old am in medical school and cheerleading for the new england patriots! I am friendly and outgoing and I have more guys asking me out than I know what to do with. There is a lot of life after high school so you girls need to hang there. Focus on getting a good education, playing sports, becing a well-rounded person so when you do grt the procedure you will truly blossom! I hope this imspires you and I wish you all the best :)

  67. I feel like I need to comment... I'm 17 years old and I have hated my nose for the past 4 years. I miss the way it used to look like in middle school and over the years it has grown to become wider and more bulbous. It's terrible. Thankfully my parents have agreed to allow me to get surgury but not until I turn 18...I have no clue how Im going to deal with it for another year. If it were up to me I would get it done as soon as possible. 11 more months to go..!

  68. Hey, I'm 15 and I think that my front profile is almost beautiful. Looking at me straight on, you would never guess...but from the side, my nose has a huge hump. Instead of inheritting my mothers small, cute, perfect nose, I got my dad's masculine humped over nose. IT ISN'T FAIR!!!! It just...appeared as if by magic two years ago. I haven't had a boyfriend since and I feel I can never let anyone see my side profile, standing with my head bent low and walking on the wrong side of the hallway at school in an attempt for my bang to cover it. My mom said if I really wanted it, I could get a nose job when I'm seventeen, but, THAT'S JUST SO FAR AWAY!!! I know I shouldn't care what guys think but there's this guy that I want to go out with so bad but I feel like all he sees is my ugly nose. HELP I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR IF I SHOULD TRY TO PUSH THE DATE OF MY NOSE JOB CLOSER OR JUST CANCEL IT ALL TOGETHER I FEEL UGLY ALL THE TIME!!!

I'm 13,nearly 14 and hate my nose soo much, its like a hook nose, if my nose wasn't so big I would look so much prettier. I always try avoiding people looking at me from the side,and I hate people taking pictures or videos of me. I want a nose job soo bad,do you think I can get one when I turn 13? And does anyone know a good plastic surgeon in south Africa?

  74. Before any surgery can happen, you need to have a consult with your surgeon to make sure whether you are a good candidate or not. One factor that determines this is your age. You should be on the age where your facial growth has stopped which is around 13 years old. You should also be generally healthy and free from any vices, such as drinking or smoking, for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. It is also important to have realistic goals and expectations on the outcome of surgery.

  75. Hi everyone im 13 & i feel just like everyone of you. I know my friends dont care about it but i just feel like everyones staring at it all the time! Im a mexican so i blame that for having such an ugly nose. Also , i feel as if whenever a guy starts to like me , he starts to see my nose! My nose ruins everything. I even tried to do modeling but i quit because i had such low self esteem because of my nose. I have thought about getting a nose job but then again im only 13 soo idk. It would boost up my self esteem very much , but then i think that i should accept myself the way i am. That is very hard to do with all these people who judge you for every flaw you have without even getting to know you.

  76. I'm 15 and I have a very large, pointy nose that sticks out, droops at the tip and has a bump. I've tried makeup tips none of them work for me they just made my nose look even more noticeable with all the makeup on it I even tried pushing my nose up with my finger for like 5 minutes everyday and that didn't really do anything just made it look smaller for a few minutes, I've tried different hairstyles, makeup techniques and even purchased a nosehuggie (noseright, nosemagic) and it DIDN'T WORK so don't waste your money. I myself have no confidence or anything in myself because of my huge nose I hate taking pictures and I have to photoshop my nose smaller, I constantly hide my nose with my hand in public because I'm that insecure and it is as bad as I'm making it out to be, I've begged my parents for a year now if I can have a nose job and they repeatedly said no, until lately now that I'm 15 and turning 16 in a few months and 16 is the appropriate age for a nose job I am now allowed one for my 16th birthday, I'm so happy and excited and not scared at all, if you girls really hate your nose with such a passion that you want a nose job, then go for it, your only going to look and feel better aren't you?

    1. im 16 and i got droopy tip and a small bump on the upper left side of my nose....overall it really bothers me alot, my nickname is squidward for some people and i hate it.ive tried all makeup tips but none of them worked for me either. I got so crazy that i actually put super glue on the corners inside of my nose to my nose more pointy. it didnt work and all it caused was irritation. I too tried the nose huggies and all it did was make my nose red. & wow karyssa me and you have the same story almost. im turning 16 but my I have medicaid for my insurance and isnt that good and im not sure if i will get full coverage for rhinoplasty. I was born with a cleft lip and palate so I have to fix my teeth and my nose. Currently i have a big underbite and a big nose. -FML....also i think people wont even give me a job because of the way i look. even when i try to be serious, My looks dont follow. i swear even if i get a job, i will save all my money to afford a normal face.

  78. I am 27 and i have a pretty big nose. it is not massive or distracting, but i just feel that a nose job would improve my overall face. i am happy with my body and face and find that by making my nose smaller will make me look better. money aside (cause seriously it's expensive and there's nothing else to say about it), i am wondering if the risk and pain is worth it. many people take for granted just how serious surgery is. the risk of death or an allergic reaction under aenesthestics (sp??)are high enough to classify going under as a serious procedure. the thought of someone breaking my nose, cutting up some cartilage and sewing it back together,then feeling like crap for a month is scary.

    and yet i am still considering it. says a lot about our society eh? if anyone could let me know how their nose job went, i'd appreciate it.

    For those of you who are teenagers: i know it's annoying when adults say this to you, but seriously, you will change SO MUCH in the next 5 years. i'm not even talking physically, i am talking about who you are. everyone in their teenage years and young adult years is self-conscious. don't be offended by this. you may be mature for your age, but that doesn't mean you are mature. so anyone under 22 years old, relax. wait. work on getting into university and being happy. you are children right now. i know it's hard to accept, but this is the reality and you won't figure this out until you are not a child anymore. anything you want or feel right now will most likely change.

  81. I've been picked on since the summer before 2nd grade, mostly by the same people, but also by people just at the store that i didnt even know. Little kids point at me and i hear them whisper to whomever is around them about me. And im not paranoid, i accually HEAR them say it. A couple times, kids my age or older would come up to me and ask why i had a big nose, or why is it shaped that way. One asked if i broke it, which i never did. I also have people in my family every now and then make comments about it. I've wanted plastic surgery ever since i found out about it in the 5th grade. I'm now in high school and i STILL hear about it. I have never had a boyfriend. And i dont blame them, who would want to go out with an ugly freak like me. I know i want to get this surgery done, for more than 5 years i've wanted it. I think that is a long enough time to think about it. I turn 16 in a couple months, But the only problem is, it's in the middle of the school year, and i dont wanna come to school the next week with a new nose, and people will think im fake or something, and i might get made fun of for having the surgery. What should i do? Do you think that i should goto a different school or something?

  84. I have I bump on my nose too:( im turning 14 this summer and I really want to get a nose job I love everything about myself except my nose. A lot of people say it's not noticeable when I ask them but it stills bugs me. I see everyone with a perfect nose and I feel unpretty. I have had a couple of boyfriends and a lot of guys like me but I dont like myself. The main reason I want rhinoplasty is cause I want to be an actress. That's my dream. I live and breath acting. Im scared that this is going to affect my future career. I'm really scared. thats the only reason why I would ever want surgery. Im not sure if I want to get it though because when I become famous I hope to be a role model to girls that have my nose but i still kinda want plastic surgery.

I am 15 and I hate my nose, I don't get bullied about and I have had previous boyfriends that say it never bothered them and that I overreact, but it makes me so self conscious. All of my friends are beautiful and I get jealous although I hate to admit it :l I look in the mirror and try to ignore it but I feel like it ruins my face. I really want a nose job but I don't want people at school to judge me, urrh.... what do I do, I'm so confused?!

  89. Hi, I'm 15 years old and everyday I wake up and the first thing I think about is my nose.
    I never had a huge hump on my nose until my friend broke it 3 years ago I coped with it for all these years and I can't deal with it much longer!
    I can't breath properly, I cry at the slightest thing that touches it, I'm constantly self concious I can't even sit next to someone facing forwards because I can't help but think there staring at my horrible nose.
    I cry about it a lot because I don't care what people say it doesn't change the way I feel.
    I went through a faze where I tried to accept it but I can't? I can't walk past people without constantly thinking there looking at my nose.
    I know I can't cope with this all my life and I just want to be able to feel confident for once! I hate myself because of my nose it ruins everything! Do you think I should get a nose job?
