Hello. My name is Alex. I don’t usually do this but I need some extra help. I’ve been extremely insecure about my nose since I was really young. I had a really big nose and was bullied about it all through school. Finally at 18, I was able to get my nose done with the help of my grandma and my dad. It was $7,000. I thought all my insecurities were going to be gone! I couldn’t wait for my surgery date. I was ready to put behind all my worries with my nose. I wanted this since I was 11 years old (yes, sadly that young.) I chose the surgeon who was closest to my home and didn’t weigh my options with any other surgeons. I was just ready to get it done and thought every surgeon was as qualified as each other to do what I wanted done.
Unfortunately, the surgeon that did my nose was not as skilled when it came to working on my nose. The left side of my nose also collapsed during surgery and he didn’t have the time to build it back correctly. My nose has been left extremely asymmetrical, still too big for my face, and not “natural looking.” Aside from the aesthetic part, I can’t breathe very well through my nose. I am so disappointed. This moment I waited for has just pro-longed my self-confidence.
In November of 2015, I visited a rhinoplasty surgeon in Miami. He spent a lot of time with me during my consultation and did some photoshop images to show me what my result would look like if I decided to plan a surgery with him. He has fixed a lot of noses like mine and I feel confident and comfortable with choosing him as my next surgeon. I have already saved $4,000 since then but I am having a hard time making up for the rest of the money. The full cost of the surgery is $12,000. I am a full-time student right now and am also working. I try to save as much money as I can a month to put toward my surgery but I don’t have the means or am in a situation to put much of my money to savings.
I really want this. I’m tired of looking in the mirror every day and wishing my nose was different. I’m tired of doing my makeup and hair and still not feeling pretty because of something in the middle of my face. I don’t plan on looking like a celebrity or a model, I just want my nose to look natural. I want to take pictures of myself without having to go to extreme measures of angles, lighting, etc. to find one where my nose isn’t the center of attention. If you’ve read this far, thank you. And if you donate anything at all, I appreciate it so much.
Thank you all so much
