I wish we all looked like Voldermort.
Yikes! If that's how you feel about your nose I'd recommend a therapist long before a plastic surgeon!

This. I've got a real Cyrano nose - not always the most attractive on a woman - and now that I have kids I'm so glad I never did anything to change it. It's my nose but also my kids' nose, how would they feel about themselves if I thought a feature that they share with me was too ugly? Plus now that I've lost my grandparents I love seeing a little bit of them when I look in the mirror, too.

Don't underestimate the power of a distinctive nose on an otherwise attractive person. It actually makes you, in a way, more attractive. It's easy to attract people if you look like the perfect ideal, but if you have this "flaw" and people are still attracted to you, how much more winning must you be? Think of Cindy Crawford's mole, Lauren Hutton's gap tooth, Barbra Streisand's nose, etc. In their heyday they were all on the top of the celebrity food chain.

P.S. WildCard you look awesome!

It's true. Appearances count, and facial appearance counts a LOT. The nose really does matter tremendously.

My mom, who REALLY didn't like to spend money, when I brought up the subject of my big hook nose as a teen, said that she and my father were prepared to pay for a nose job for me if I wanted it. I could tell that they had discussed it beforehand, and had decided NOT to broach the subject with me, out of sensitivity, but to wait for me to ask. I then decided against it, and I think that it was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I'm not the kind of person who fusses with my appearance, don't usually bother with makeup. But I've been self-conscious about my nose all my life, and I do think that it had a negative effect on dating opportunities, possibly even professionally. At this point in my life, I don't feel like it's worth going through with it. But I sure wish I had done it as a teen.

Recently, I saw a performance where the young actress was just fantastic. But she had an ugly nose, and for the first part of the performance, I couldn't even focus on and appreciate her performing - I was simply distracted by her ugly nose!

Now my own teen daughter is at the point of deciding on this. I know that she will make the same decision that I did, for the same reasons. She will feel that it's not right that she should have to surgically alter her appearance to please others, that people should just accept her as she is. Fortunately, her nose is a little less of an issue on her face than mine was on mine. She's also quite beautiful, even with the hook nose. But I so wish that I could convince her to have the nose job. It will make a difference in her life. I don't want her to repeat my mistake. But I'm unwilling to push her, because of course it is her decision.

I really do feel that the nose is crucial to someone's appearance, certainly more so than thin lips or flat buttocks, or small breasts.

Btw,if you don't have that much money,you can head to a 3rd world country and get it done for $2000. The Dominican Republic is one,and Brazil the other.

Speaking of 3rd world countries,Brazil gives it poor citizens free plastic surgery.
The reason: Why shouldn't the poor be beautiful too?
