How to find out if I should get plastic surgery?


I am thinking about a nose job, but I cannot find out how my nose looks like. Pictures are different. When I take 2 mirrors I can see my profile, but it depends on lightning and which mirror I use. Sometimes my nose looks almost straight, but under different ligthning it looks very crooked in its shape. Are 2 mirrors to trust? I cannot decide and so I cannot get a nose job. Thank you

There is a way using software designed to show potential changes to your nose. FInd a board certified plastic surgeon that offers this computer imaging. Feel free to contact me if you need further info.

A good way to look at your nose is to have someone take photos in “mug shot” poses. If you are interested in a rhinoplasty, then I suggest you visit a plastic surgeon for evaluation. Best of luck.
