Basically when i was born my nose isnt the same either side, my nostrils are different shapes 😳 unfortunately this was passed down from my dad as he had complications when he was born also. I am going to uni soon and im worried meeting new people because of it as i dont want people to judge me. I have been called things before because of it and theres times when it has really upset me 😢 i have told all my family that i want go in the police force but my absolute dream would to move to america and go into modelling, make-up artist that sort of thing. Now i knkw it wont happen because of my nose which is also why it puts me down because its stopping me from doing what i really want to do what would the chance be of getting a nose job done on the nhs? I cant really afford it and i wouldnt expect my parents to pay as it is what i want and i want to do it for myself. Any ideas? And please no negative comments ☺

Pretty low I m afraid.
You d have to have body dysmorphic disorder or at least an assessment proving it is doing major damage to your mental health to have a chance at even asking for one. Unless an ENT specialist can say you need surgery because your nose makes breathing too difficult. People in uni generally can be way less judging than a bunch of teenagers at school so it's likely no one will even care what your nose looks like, I don't have the best nose and after secondary school no ones said a thing since.

It is normally done on the NHS if you have trouble breathing because of your nose. I have issues with my nose too, people are less judging at university. I don't think anyone has actually ever mentioned my nose.

My teacher in college said her daughter had a crooked nose and she was really unhappy with it especially because when she got to high school she was bullied a lot. Apparently, they kicked up a massive fuss about it for a long time saying it was causing her mental health issues and effecting her daily life because of the bullying. That sort of thing.

Long story short: she managed to get a nose job on the NHS without any medical issues with her nose or breathing.

Hi I had a nose operation on tge nhs as I suffered with my breathing and only slight difference to my shape . I had suffered frim severe severe eating disorders, body dismorphia and other mental health issues. I have always had an issue with the shape of my nose and its making me mentally break down I had even breathing through my nose as it reminds me of the shape. Its making me really ill. I dont know what I can do

The NHS will only do it for functional reasons and wouldn’t really care about the cosmetic aspect so it’s always worth paying for an actual cosmetic surgeon

This is really unfortunate, if your nose affects your breathing that's the only way you can get a Rhinoplasty on the NHS or if you've broken it. I broke mine when I was 8, and my parents paid privately, despite not needing to, and I'm now 17 with a broken nose, misplaced cartilage and such a deviated spetum I cannot breathe out of one side of my nose. My surgery didn't work. So I'm having to wait 10 years to even be put on a waiting list to have mine fixed by the NHS. I'd see what the NHS can do if it really affects your day to day life,like breathing, you'd be considered for surgery then.

I understand where your coming from posting this and you're only trying to give advice. But I don't think scamming the NHS is very fair, when there are people who desperately need the surgery and could be wait listed for someone potentially lying about their breathing problems.
