Huge nose Watch

Please keep anonymous.

I'm 17 years old and I have a really big nose. It's actually ridiculous now and there's been so many comments made about it. I'm completely happy with the rest of myself... just my nose makes me SO insecure. I have almost 0 pictures of myself because of it and it just gets me really down. I don't understand why I couldn't have been born with a normal nose... my life would have been almost perfect if I had.

I'm thinking of getting a nose job when I've finished uni (haven't started yet) by taking out a loan... I really don't care how much debt I'm in... I just don't think I can go through my life looking like I do. Opinions please?

I'm having an ugly day today I suppose...

I hate mine too, don't worry about it. It's a common thing that people hate about themselves.

Sorry to hear that.

I think we have to accept ourselves for who we are in the end. But if you want cosmetic surgery then go for it if you feel it would make you happier.

Most people who I see who dislike their nose though usually have a nice nose.

I actually walked down the street once and someone whispered "whoa look at the size of her nose..."

I don't know if you're a boy or a girl, but my boyfriend has a very large nose and I think he looks incredibly sexy. It adds character to his face.

What is wrong with you then?

I'm sure it is fixable.

Hmm.. easy said than being done..
I don't agree with plastic surgery, but if you really are conscious and you think a nose job will help your confidence soar and stop you being depressed then by all means go for it..
But i find that people are just paranoid most of the time and think people talk about it.. Just learn to love yourself..
But if the benefits outweighs the money etc.. by all means go for a nose job!

We all have our flaws, but just think of people who have a lot bigger and more seirous problems than a nose. Like disabled people e.g.? Without wanting to sound hypocritical, be grateful for what you have and i'm sure you'll feel a lot better

I don't know if it is possible... but if it is affecting you psychologically, could you get a nose job off the NHS.

My dad had an absolutely massive nose as a teenager, and the NHS gave him a nose job (but he also had neurofibromatosis- but the large nose was affecting him psychologically eg not wanting to socialise).

I wouldn't want to use the already depleting NHS resources on correcting my nose. However, it is something that bothers me greatly. Maybe I should fake some nasal problems

Ultimately it comes down to how you feel about it and if you have come to the conclusion that you cant carry on looking and feeling this way then surgery is the only option. And as you know that is not without its risks.

I have a fairly big nose and I used to have a real issue with it. Now I think, what the hell, its my face people either like it or they dont and Im not prepared to go through surgery for it. But everyone is different and it is your choice. Dont feel bad about yourself however, Im sure everyone has those days where they would like to look and feel better than they do.

I'm sure your nose is probably not as large as mine! (I have probably met under 5 people whose noses WERE) - I used to feel just like you, but I realised that it can be a positive aspect of oneself to have a more unique feature since so many people's faces are relatively indistinct. My profile picture (relatively speaking!) flatters (or is that flattens!) my nose, but it is HUGE from the side. In any case - if people make comments, if you can carry yourself off well and show it as a positive feature, then such comments will be redundant.

I agree with the people who say you are more concious of it. I am paranoid that my nose takes the shape of a ski slope, but other people tell me to shut up

Funny that. I thought many Chinese people have surgery to increase nose size to look more western.

Really??? never heard of that, so are big noses actually admired by some people? I really really hope so for my own sake

Yeah Chinese aspire to western models. Jackie Chan even had eyelid surgery many years ago.

Don't worry. I have a generous nose too.
But it's character building I guess.. I wouldn't be me without it.
