Hi, I'm new here. I'm a 26 year old female from Houston with a hubby and two children (5 & 4).
I've hated my nose for as long as I can remember. I'm middle eastern, so I have the stereotypical large curved nose. The front doesnt bother me, but the side REALLY does.
I'm considering rhinoplasty but I have a few (maybe silly) concerns.
First, I'm terrified of the pain. I have two kids so Im scared they'll bump me an ruin my new nose and hurt me! I'm also scared of the surgery and recovery after.
My biggest concern, however, is coworkers. I'm completely embarrassed to mention my nose in front of anyone that isn't a close friend. I hate drawing attention to it, even though it's my dominating feature. I'm not sure what to say to people at work. Theyre all pretty conservative and most are nosy and outspoken.
Should I tell people before I have it done? How do I tell them?
It's going to be very, very obvious after since my nose is so large an curved, so it won't be a minor change. It's so embarrassing to me. Not really the surgery itself, it just that I've been embarrassed by my nose my entire life. If anyone even mentions noses, my face turns bright red!
Any advice relating to dealing with work would be greatly appreciated. I hope this doesn't sound too silly, I just wish my 'problem' area wasn't so 'out there' haha
I plan on eventually having implants on my post-children breasts, but that's not to 'in your face'
I'm hoping to have it done by the end of this year or maybe beginning of next year.
ETA- any recommendations for surgeons in Houston woul be appreciated!
Also, how does the dr decided whether to do a closed v open rhinoplasty? I've heard closed has a much easier recovery.
