There is nothing more important than looking in the mirror and being comfortable and content with the face you see staring back at you. That’s the sort of feeling that doesn’t come from movies and magazines, no matter how much they try to force their beauty standards upon people. To be truly at ease in your own skin, you need to be the one to decide what you feel is beautiful.
That includes getting what you decide counts as a beautiful nose surgery (called ศัลยกรรมจมูกสวย in Thai).
Doing it for Yourself
When you first contact a surgeon in Australia, or elsewhere, about the possibility of a rhinoplasty, they will schedule an appointment to discuss your thoughts and feelings about the procedure. During this meeting, they will ask you a series of questions, one of the most important being if you are doing this for the right reasons. Besides the fact that surgeons obviously want to limit their medical liability as much as possible, they also have an ethical duty to make sure that their clients are not engaging in self-harm.
Being body positive means loving your body for what it is and what you are. A nose surgery can be a healthy part of mastering your body, but only if you are the master and doing it for the right reasons.
Reviewing Your Options
Once you have cleared all these questions and your surgeon has signed off, they’ll work with you to review your different options. There are naturally many different kinds of shapes and sizes into which your nose can be tipped, tucked, and moulded to fashion it into something you find “beautiful.” It is worth noting that many of the most popular shapes are modelled after a naturalistic sort of style. Beauty and nature go hand in hand, and so a natural-looking nose surgery makes sense.
A responsible surgeon will also make sure that you understand any risks associated with the procedure. Every medical procedure has risks, and nose surgeries are no different. That said, with the proper preparation on your part and their medical expertise, you’ll be able to make an informed decision with all the facts, allowing you to choose the right surgery for you.
A nose surgery is, naturally, a highly personal and sensitive topic. Like all beauty topics, however, it is a matter of personal choice, and the best surgeons listen to their patients’ wishes and empower them to leave with their heads held high – noses and all.
