I have considered the same thing. My nose doesn't look too bad, I'm not so worried about that, but I broke it playing rugby, and one side is constricted compared to the other. How much does it cost?
it costs a couple of grand stratomaster. Cheaper (a little) if you go abroad. I've looked into it myself - my nose is very large.
if you need to explain to anyone how you feel perhaps ask them if they'd be comfortable with you getting braces if your teeth were bad.
very few people would have any issues with that, when it's essentially the same thing. slightly altering the way you look to make you more comfortable with yourself.
might not work, but it's worth a go just to make them look at it in a slightly different way.
I am having a nose job after uni, costs I have found are around £3000-4000.
