In my experiences, I have not necessarily seen women to be held to a different standard than men when it comes to noses. I have often noticed that women are harder on other women for their nose than men are on them and that men can be harder on other men for their noses than women are.

I think this is because when one is looking at the member of the opposite sex, they look to see what they find attractive first and if the nose happens to be a little off and everything else checks out fine, then its not really a problem. On the other hand, when people look at those within their gender, they are sizing them up to see how they compare and the things that are off will be noticed first. just my theory....

I agree 100%, td475. A million percent actually.

Hey guys,

I had a consult with a doc a while ago and he mentioned to me that the tip will automatically lift up a bit, once the hump is removed. Is that correct?

I had never heard of that before, and logically, it seems like it would droop even more when the hump is removed.

Any input?

That's hard to say for me, because a lot of guys did not care about my nose before at all, boyfriends and the like, but some guys did make comments growing up.

Either way whether its women or men, North America as a whole is very hard on women's body image, and it's spreading to other parts of the world.

I wasn't suggesting that negative comments regarding the nose only came from memebers of the same gender, just that they happen more frequently and are made out to be even worse from within the gender.

I think the double standards and expectations ultimately even out in the long run. Guys in our society can get away with having a little extra body fat and hair. However, who gets it worse than short guys? They get made fun of by members of both genders and are automatically rejected as a potential mate based on that fact alone. Also, theres no diet, exercise, or surgery that can improve this.

That's often true about short guys, yes, but it 's been proven that women care more about social status and money in men because of security. So if a short guy has a lot else going for him, then height can be overlooked. Just throwing that out there.

Research I have done personally shows that women are judged based upon their waist to hip ratio and men are judged by their financial status, regardless if it is perceived status or actual status.

Ok,

I have gone to a total of 6 consults already. And still, I can't say that I feel completely comfortable with any of them.

All of the ones I've gone to..they are either too passive, too extreme in their approach, too shady, too careless, too salesman-ish, etc...

I still don't have a strong gut feeling about any of them. And at this point, don't know where else to look.

And how were the results they showed you from patients that had similar issues to yours?

Half of them didn't even have past patients with similar cases. A few of them did, but even then, it wasn't necessarily the exact same case.
