Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

I am 28 years old. I have disliked my nose since I was 14 and have lived with this for half my life. I would rip pictures of my profile, because I had a witch's nose. When I gathered the money, I was ready for it. I'm two days away from having the splinter taken off. I can already see the results! From this week on I will no longer be ugly. I'm going to love ME and love everybody else even more!

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

I kind of kept it quiet. I was surprised to find out that they were all OK with it. Well at first they were saying: you did what? And did it hurt?, is it hurting? After they knew that I wasn't in any sort of pain, they gave me I'll the support I needed.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

1800mySurgeon gave me all the help in the world. I felt so much support and understanding from them. They suggested a group of surgeons that later I contacted. I was told they had the one I was looking for but that Dr. Luce was even more qualified for rhinoplasty. So I went for it.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I had a rhinoplasty to reshape my ugly nose. Everything went very smoothly, my surgeon is one of the best if not the best. I am so happy I had it done and recovery is going great!

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

You only live once. If you have the money, start looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. Have 1800mySurgeon help you if you are clueless like I was about where to start looking.

How do you feel about your result?

Like I said I still have the splinter on but I kind of see the results already. I couldn't be happier about my decision.
