Random Rhino Rants
 
Do you ever wonder why your plastic surgeon has a big nose and isn't doing anything about it?

I've noticed that many of the docs I've gone to a consultation with have big noses. And I can't help but think, "Hey, if these people are so pro rhinoplasty, why don't they get their noses trimmed down a bit??? ...Makes ya wonder.

I've had the urge to ask, but my consideration for peoples' feelings has stopped me.

I agree to a point, but maybe they've seen so much that they don't believe in doing it themselves, and don't have the insecurity to have to resort to plastic surgery. Sadly I only really think it of women. I don't think it's a big deal if a man has a bigger nose.

Maybe the surgeons are ok with themselves and their large noses?

It is all about one's personal perception. Despite the way people are perceived by outsiders, all that matters is how one perceives oneself.

A surgeon having a large nose would definitely not discourage me from using him or her for work on said area. Their past patients (real patients ;)) accounts, expertise, demeanor, level of patience, as well as real before and afters are what a potential patient should be concerned about.

Think about the psyche of a surgeon and their livelihood. ANY surgeon. Surgeons "cut" for a living, but they cut others ... not them$elve$.

Why do you think this is, danistarr? Interesting and thought provoking comment.

I think probably because people tend to refer to big noses as "masculine". It's always been drilled in my head and in the media that girls have small, straight little noses. Everything about women should be "small".

My mother is actually going in for her own surgery tomorrow, and her doctor said they would make her nose more "feminine". A lot of people have a hard time accepting a girl with a big Roman nose. I was teased a few times growing up for it.

danistarr,

Your sentiments are echoed by many others as well. Sad, but verrry true.

I know it's all about how one perceives themselves...but don't they perceive their large nose?? haha

I'm just being silly.

Danistarr, I disagree with the whole 'its ok for men' theory.

It all depends on the person face (regardless of sex) and how the face/personality carry the nose.

But this is why us woman need to fight the convention! We shouldn't be accepting of men with big honkers just cuz they are men. A big nose is a big nose, regardless.

It's like women having to shave everything, while men can go out and about with their legs and underarms. Women gave into societal expectations and now we are all screwed. :Angry:

...I should start a movement.

Amy,

You truly should.
I wish it would take off, but knowing what I do both personally as well as professionally, you have your work cut out for you. :(

Woman shouldn't be held to a different standard than men when it comes to their noses but that's how it tends to be. I do think it's magnified in Western cultures. It's not any help that most female celebs get tip refinement.
