I think I have a big nose and I am not sure if I should get surgery someday. My boyfriend thinks I'm beautiful but I don't see what he sees. I look horrible in pictures and my nose is huge. Especially my profile.It is not big enough for me to get stared at and people I know say it isn't big. But it is bigger than my boyfriend's nose. Also in high school I was told it was big. I am 26 now. Lastly I have stretch marks and I want to know the best treatments please. If it is expensive then I will just save forever. :/ I've tried cocoa butter and different creams and lotions bit they do not seem to work. I just keep getting new ones because my weight goes up and down. The most I have weighed is 147 and I am 5'3.

don't get surgery for your nose, if your boyfriend loves your nose what is the problem, are there other guys you are trying to look sexy / beautiful for?

Don't do it! I'm sure you don't need surgery. Your nose probably isn't all that big. And even if it is, remember Jennifer Grey? She looked great with a big nose, better than she looks post surgery.

If YOU feel ugly, then go ahead and get a rhinoplasty. Just don't do it for anyone else!

How can you be sure that your boyfriend will still think that you are beautiful after your surgery?

Agree that this shouldn't be about your boyfriend. It needs to be about what makes you happy. I've known many people who've gotten nose jobs because they simply wanted to - they didn't have self-esteem issues and they didn't need therapy. But keep in mind, your nose job should simply be for yourself - it will change what you see in the mirror - it isn't going to change your life for the better.

Before you proceed with your idea:
1) Visit several plastic surgeons - they can manipulate images to give you a good idea of what you'll look like
2) Make sure you are happy with other aspects of your life and that you aren't fixing your nose instead of fixing other things.

Hugs~ Love yourself....When I was younger I almost had a nose job at 18, thankfully my future husband I met back then told me wait, he loved my Jewish/Portuguese nose, yes he had a small perfect Italian nose.. I'm 50 and thankful I didn't cut away apart of me, when I look in the mirror I see love ones who are no longer with us...It gives me confront and a reminder.... Plus I know now a little button nose would have never fit my personality. .
