One of the biggest insecurities in my life, that influenced my self-esteem a lot, was my long crooked nose. Unfortunately, it was a hereditary quality, as this prominent facial feature brands my father’s side of the family. While I was able to spend my teenage years and go all the way through college without thinking too much about it, the moment I got my job as a PR manager I realised I had a problem that needed to be fixed.
Why I chose to have a rhinoplasty
Being a PR manager, interacting with so many people every day, requires you to be confident, professional and above all, communicative. The first person clients come across when they want to cooperate with the company I work for, is me. This basically puts a big burden on my shoulders, knowing that I’m practically the face of the company and that if I don’t leave a good impression, my company will suffer. Therefore, I decided to have a rhinoplasty and boost my self-esteem. Trying to position my head perfectly while taking pictures of myself, so that my profile wouldn’t be caught on photos, started to become exhausting. While the nose didn’t look as bad in person, the camera always managed to make it longer and more crooked than it actually was. That’s why I decided to consult a plastic surgeon and see what could be done.
A doctor told me what the surgery is good for and what problems it can solve. As I was telling him that I sometimes have difficulty breathing, more continuous headaches, and that my friends had noticed I snore on vacations a lot, the doctor diagnosed me with a deviated septum. The headaches I’ve had were a consequence of sinusitis that was caused by a deviated septum, and it seemed as if my problems were only growing bigger. Therefore, I decided to turn to a true professional and undergo a rhinoplasty. Thanks to highly qualified experts like those at Rhinoplasty Sydney, anyone can have the beautiful nose they’ve always wanted. They made sure I was familiar with all the risks that might come with the procedure, and I’m forever grateful for that. For example, some of the risks were nosebleeds, a numb nose, as well as a bad reaction to anaesthesia.
Fortunately, I didn’t experience any of those, maybe just a slight numbness but it was very short. I also didn’t have any bruises which alongside swellings can be a possible side effect. Luckily, I was swell-free and the only uncomfortable thing was the fact that I had a blocked up nose, so I had to breathe through my mouth for five days. I managed to recover within three weeks and go back to my normal, everyday life. One thing I would like mention is that it’s very important to consult an experienced professional, and not think about saving a few bucks by opting for an amateur butcher who’ll only make your nose look worse. Also, it’s important to remember that even if you don’t have the most perfect nose in the world, that doesn’t make you any less beautiful or any less worthy of anyone’s affection. We are all gorgeous in our own way and we shouldn’t allow physical appearances to define us. Of course, this does not mean you should settle for what you have, especially if you don’t feel comfortable in your own body. If a slight adjustment to your appearance can boost your confidence and make you feel better about yourself, by all means, go for it.
In the end, I have to say that the surgery was a great experience, and I would highly recommend it to everyone who thinks their nose needs a slight fix. Whether you feel like you should straighten it up, or just work on your septum problems, there’s nothing to be afraid of. However, don’t spend too much time browsing the internet, because you’ll stumble upon horrifying images that will only make you more nervous, and maybe even lead you to question your decision. If you turn to a licensed and experienced surgeon, there’s nothing to worry about.
