| | Rhinoplasty Ė Biggest Regret Ever - Too Risky Ė Donít do it!
Iíve ruined my natural beauty and wish this was a nightmare I could wake up from. My nose was not that bad but from time to time throughout the years, I sometimes wished it was not so wide when I smiled. I didnít like that the ball shape at the tip of my nose, especially when I laughed, so decided to get it contoured. I explained to the doctor that I didnít want to lose my ethnic appearance (Hispanic and Native American) but now tip is upturned, thus losing my ethnic look that I loved.
He recommended also narrowing the bridge a little which I thought was a good idea. We never discussed removing/shortening my bottom portion of my nose. I thought that if I fixed it, I would gain more confidence. I traded in my nose for a snout and am more depressed than I have ever been in my life.
How stupid I feel to take such a risk. I thought I did enough homework and thought I could only benefit from narrowing my nose. The doctorís website said he always uses a subtle approach so I thought I was safe. I did my homework, checked out his credentials (board certified with no complaints) and reviews. Had two consultations with him where he showed me hundreds of pictures he said were his work (I now wonder if they belonged to his partner). I now have a large unattractive gap between my mouth and nose and my nose looks like a triangle that sits way too high on my face. I can see my nostrils when I look in the mirror and cry because it resembles a pigís snout.
Itís not worth it people. Learn to love what God gave you and donít put your trust into mere men, who only want your money. This doctor talked me into other procedures as well, that I donít believe I needed and all procedures appear to be a failure at this time. It has been almost a month so hopefully my appearance will improve but at this time, I donít even want to leave the house and am more self conscious than ever.
