Hi, I am a 45 year old mum looking to improve my breathing and my face. All my life I have been constantly reminded of the fact that my nose is not proportional to my face. It has been very painful to hear comments like wao “you are beautiful but your nose…..” or “if it were not for your nose.. you would have been a very beautiful lady” It did bother me but at one point I just ignored everything. I said to myself “my nose does not define who I am”
I never knew the structure of my nose was affecting my health until recently when I consulted with a specialist because I snore a lot and I also have difficulty breathing especially at night. when I sleep I snore so badly and when I get up in the morning, my ears are full. It is feels like they are air-filled. It is very irretating and it affects my hearing as well.
The specialist I saw recommended a septoplasty that is a surgery to fix my breathing and snoring issues. In addition to that a rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time to reduce the size of my nose and give me a nose that is proportional to my beautiful face.
I want to get a septorhinoplasty. the surgery will cost $8,970.00. The doctor says he will have to go in the back of my ear to remove some skin for the surgery. I can’t afford it. I have $1,000 saving that I can use plus the consultation fee of $100.00 already paid. My goal is to raise $7,870.
I uploaded two pictures, one of the portion of my face and the other of the consultion with the specialist. Certain portion have been covered for privacy purpose.
Nothing is too small, anything is greatly appreciated
