Hi there! So I am only 15 and until recently I had always been fine with my nose. I had never ( and still have never) been teased for its appearance. However, I believe that about a year ago I broke my nose, causing a considerable hump on the bridge as well as the sides of the bridge. I have never really worried about it until recently when I saw a video of myself from the side and I was quite unsatisfied with the appearance of my nose. I don't in any way hate it, it's a part of who I am. But I have seriously considered a nose job. My parents support me, but there are many complications and to when I would be able to carry out the procedure. I am an avid tennis player, and I compete often in tournaments, so I would not be able to go more than 2 or 3 weeks without playing for now... Is that possible? Also, what about recovery time for swimming and dancing? And lastly, is it really worth it for someone my age, or would I become so obsessed with changing my appearance that I would become mentally ill? All of these things are very confusing, and I have found many conflicting answers. That's all! Thanks a bunch!
I think you should wait a while until your completely sure the operation in for you. Maybe even wait till you graduate high school, so that not that many people will find out about the surgery....
I also think that in the long run it won't matter if you take out three weeks of tennis. You'll still be just as good. Don't go through with it unless you're completely sure, because it cannot be undone.
