I used to suffer from BDD and obsessed over thinking I had a big nose & wanted plastic surgery all up until my adult years now I'm so GLAD I never did it! I never had anyone tell me I had a big nose besides an Asian lady dental assistant that said she liked my big nose . I got upset but she said alot of Asians would get surgery to have a more European profile. Still confused cause I never thought my profile was big/long just my nose was wide. I love my nose now & think it makes me more unique :)
Hated my snout since I was 11. Sometimes I think it’s not so bad..sometimes I want to cut it off my face. I often envy cute little sniffers and yes, why not - i’d go for surgery if I had the money to burn. But a part of me would kinda miss it? :P

I'm always torn between "Do I set an example for confidence in Women who have big noses" or "Do I give up and get a nose job". Anyone else felt like this?
I used to be very self conscious about my nose, but it eventually grew on me.

This is a photo of me and my Fiance :) It’s finally a photo of my side view that i’m kinda ok with! I got my Dad’s nose and have always always always hated it but am learning to accept it. My Grandfather had the same nose. He was a war hero who passed away before I was born, so I feel if I was to change my nose it would be as if I am ashamed to share this feature of incredible people in my family. Not to mention getting surgery seems like a horrible time lol. I would rather build up my confidence from the inside than pay a ton of money for something more superficial. I really feel that if you ignore the insecurity and have a good attitude people will see past it. Why point out that someone has a big nose when they are such a cool person? We just have to make our awesomeness bigger than our noses! I have contemplated surgery a decent amount of times, but always end up with the same conclusion; loving myself for who I am will have much more benefits!
