Default Biggest regret of my life

I am new here, so forgive me if i'm not posting this right. I just wanted to share my two cents after my rhinoplasty which i am now regretting... I actually went in for another procedure (nothing to do with my nose) and the Dr. talked me in to getting it done. He basically said, "well you're going to fix this, but what about your nose?" I was kind of shocked to be honest b/c my nose wasn't even that bad. I had a slight dorsal hump from being hit in the nose a few times when i was younger. That was what i thought he was referring to when he asked me about getting a nose job. So, when i was asking about it and he was showing me the photoshop changes in my nose he could make, he was talking about making my tip more narrow and defined. I told him that I liked my tip but he kept saying a minor refinement would look better (and it did look a little bit better in the picture). Flash forward 8 months later and i'm not happy with what i see in the mirror. For one thing, I still have the dorsal bump (that looks more asymmetric now). I also have a full looking columella which hangs down past my nostrils (very unnatural looking) and too much cartlidge taken from my tip which doesn't suit my face as much as my original tip. Also, if you look at my profile, you can clearly see where the bony part of my nose ends and where the cartlidge begins which really freaks me out and was never like that before. I hate when people on here are saying they shouldn't let being unhappy with their nose ruin their life, but as Amy said, it's harder to accept when you caused it on yourself. The way my nose looked before looks a lot better than it does nowÖ If I knew that only going for a minor change would end up like this, I would never have done it. It has nothing to do with body dismorphic disorder either! I just wanted to remove a small hump on my nose caused by getting hit in my nose multiple times! If anyone reading this is thinking about geeting a nose job just for a minor change, please donít! You donít know what you have until itís gone

I am sorry to hear your story. At times you should be careful about what certain plactic s can talk you to and convince you about certain procedures. Who was your ps?

I do not believe that people usually are unnaturally unsatisfied with their rhinoplasty results, a good rhinoplasty result is one that is not only free of major dents (in the centimeter's depth range), major collapses, major twists, major bumps, and other deformities, but also one that that fits a person's backgrounds and face; some results that are accepted among caucasian patients, such as noses that are pinched or extremely skinny, are not preferred on people of other descents, who would rather keep a more full, smooth look. Now, you may ask "well, if the ethnic people want wide noses, why get rhinoplasty?" - well, believe it or not, cleft lip and other nasal syndromes that distort the nose effect people of ethnic descents as well, as there is also a beauty standard among ethnic noses - some are just plain too wide and bulbous, or distorted, and even ethnic people can need surgeries to bring them to what is normal and beautiful for their own race. And then, once these people of any race suffer from botched rhinoplasty, the result becomes even more traumatizing, effecting, and makes a person feel as though they are ugly and have no history, backgrounds, family ties, or personality in their looks. If someone is a mature, intelligent actress, they don't want a nose that makes them look like a cage fighter - it's both ugly and does not represent who they are - as according to pyschology studies over the past hundreds of years, a nose can have a major effect on the way people see not only your attractivness, but also what "personality type" you are - a broken nose causes people to think you are a raucus fighter or such. Not great for many folks.

But even I have seen exceptions, I have seen patients who literally have perfect noses, both in terms of symmetry and for their backgrounds or race, yet fret about deformities that cannot be measured in terms of touch, feel, sight, or breathing problems. These patients are predominantly white females, to be honest - they tend to be females that try to live a glamour lifestyle or females who have other facial problems (severe bags, crooked teeth, redness) yet are putting those negative features all on the nose. But if I see someone who has severe dents along their bridge, a pinched tip, buckled cartilages, infected or deteriorated areas, or overall weirdness, of coarse I'm going to recommend revision rhinoplasty no matter if they are white, black, male, female, or whatever: all people deserve to have a symmetrical nose as defined by textbooks as appropriate to their race or their own unique facial properties as defined individually by mathematics and facial analysis. Deformities after a rhinoplasty are not acceptable, expected, or realistic unless the person that receives them is simply fine with them!

Yes. I agree

I am beginning to think rhinoplasty does not last either and anyone who is contemplating Rhinoplasty should be prepared to ride the revision train for a life time. I was just reading a patient of Toriumi (sp) talk about her nose changing after 9 years and supposebly his work is hard and strong. I am going for a consult with Dr, Guyuron for my 4th revision. I hope it's my last but I am pretty doubtful. My nose looks bad enough that I still must try (and trust me, I don't have a disorder). I've read some stuff that indicates he is good but would love feedback from anyone with personal experience.
