I am being referred to ENT by my doctor, because my nose isn't straight and it's causing me breathing problems. Majority of the time I can't breath through my right nostril, the rest of the time I can't breathe through either. More than likely I will have to undergo surgery to have it corrected and straightened.
My question is can I request for it to be made into a more desirable shape and size, since I'm getting it reshaped anyway?
I don't want it to seem like I'm trying to get a free nose job, that's not the case. I genuinely am pursuing this surgery for my health and to aid my ability to breathe. However, if I can get it reshaped to something I am happy with, since I'm getting it reshaped anyway, and it makes me feel beautiful and confident, that would be a major bonus of going through all that pain.
Can I get my nose reshaped when having rhinoplasty to straighten it under the NHS? Watch

You'll have to speak to your surgeon. It would depend if it was extra work and additional care/management would be required. Would be a nice bonus if they could though

Yeah, ask the surgeon. Maybe ask in advance of going in, so they can add it to the pre write-up, rather than having to edit the one they've already done. Does it cause you psychological distress (hint hint)?
