    Hi guys,
    I'm 17 and for the past 6 years I have hated my nose but recently iv'e have been reading information about the NHS funding Rhinoplasy surgery, aswell my nose is very prominent but my nostrils are thin so at night I breath through my mouth and it makes me snore and it's not good for my gums and teeth and I was wondering if anyone has had funded surgery and if so what was their process or what did they have wrong.

    If I raised this point with my local GP, about the health issues do you think it would get anywhere because its not unbearable but on a scale of 10 which is being able to breathing 100% fine through my nose, mine is a 4 but it still makes me very depressed and makes me unhappy with myself.

    Also I cant afford private surgery at 17

    Thanks Chris

    It's worth asking. Worst thing they can do is say no.
