NOSE JOB (Rhinoplasty) on the NHS. Desperate :( Watch
"plus the nhs would not do it if it had no benefits at all"
You are ABSOLUTELY right!!!
Which is why they DON'T do it anymore unless it is causing significant breathing difficulties (and not just snoring a bit)
For similar reasons they have mostly stopped funding varicose veins removal.
had an op but grew back. The feeling of that first few secs was amazing.
My nose is bowed. Ive spoken to GP recently about it, as well as other things. He doesnt even want to know.
They act like nothing is wrong with me. Try sticking a plunger on your face and see how easy you can breath. Barely been able to get through uni with it.
People who have cosmetic surgery on the NHS disgust me. There are hundreds of actually ill people who have to wait years for vital operations yet you want them to fix your nose which has no health benefits whatsoever. You need counselling, not a new nose. Stop blaming all your problems on it and get real.
I had septoplasty on the NHS. My septum curved back into it's pre-op position though barely a couple of weeks after the surgery, which blocks a lot of my breathing through my left nostril. Such a pain. I haven't bothered going back since because I started Uni, but I'm considering it.

Guys, I know this guy, the only reason why he wants a nose job is not because he needs one, but rather because his father keeps on teasing him about a huge nose.
Instead of a nose job, he requires a psychiatrist to show him that it's alright to have a big nose.
By all means, use the NHS to help you get through your insecurities but do not use it for a cosmetic procedure which really should only be for people who have a disability or who have suffered from disfigurement.
If you want the operation, pay for it yourself.
I'm 19 and my nose is very big and I have a bump. I'm happy with the rest of me, I like my body, hair, teeth, everything else. However, my nose is making me depressed. I refuse to go out, I refuse to go on dates, I refuse to have pictures taken. It makes me feel worse than everyone else. And it's not just one of those things that we don't like about ourselves but have to accept it - I'm becoming very obsessed with it.
For example, whenever someone asks me for a lift, I make up excuses. And it's not because I don't want to do them a favour, but I CAN'T STAND someone sitting next to me in a car and looking at my profile.
Also, when I got with my (now ex) boyfriend, I REFUSED to be introduced to his friends and family for months because I thought they wouldnt accept me... because of my nose. I realise how stupid this sounds, and obviously I personally would not dislike someone because of their looks, but it's just constantly in my head, and even though I keep telling myself I should accept it, i just cant. IMPOSSIBLE.
Whenever I mention it to my friends they seem to brush it off and not take it seriously. I spend almost every night crying myself to sleep about it. Not accepting yourself is probably one of the worst things - worse than others not accepting you. I've decided I want a nose job, and my family agreed I should have it done because they see how unhappy it makes me. However, I'm a uni student and I cannot afford it. Apparently you can get it on the NHS, but does anyone know if I have any chances of actually qualifying for it? Where do I even start?
PS. I'm not a spoilt little girl, this is honestly ruining my life by making me so self conscious. I hate living like this. So if you want to criticize me because I want to get it for "free", please don't. I'm living in self created hell.
PS2. I've tried just accepting myself. It's not working
More seriously, it will be very difficult for you get the rhinoplasty done on the NHS. You have to convince your GP, the gatekeeper to refer you on for a start. You will have to walk the tightrope of convincing an array of medical professionals that the appearance of your nose is causing you significant emotional harm but that you are psychologically well adjusted in every other way. This is so they don't send you to some bull**** CBT or psychotherapy sessions to try and convince you to "love yourself", forget it, with that nose?! Also, reject any offers of anti depressants.
Also, if you go down the NHS route, it's doubtful you will be offered the chance to choose your surgeon or what you would like to change exactly.
So really, I'd advise you to think about the private option if you have at least £3k to spare. That will get you a bog standard cosmetic surgeon. Go for renowned specialists and you need to double that initial budget.
It might also be worth discussing your self-esteem with your doctor, this kind of reaction isn't healthy or normal, maybe they can assist. Good luck getting this though, it's a hard decision to make but you wont regret it-I don't
What you also have to understand OP, is that, you still had a relationship with a guy (and possibly more?), so he obviously liked you even with the flaw that you've mentioned. So there are people out there that will accept your flaws and embrace them. Change the way you think. Think about the future.
