It wasn’t just my physical appearance that was the problem though, as low self-esteem stopped me from doing things that other people took for granted – I hated being in photos and looking in mirrors, I even shied away from jobs which involved working with lots of people, or in public.
I did however meet a man who loved me. I met my now husband James, over 10 years ago. He would tell me how beautiful I was, but I would reject his compliments and tell him I didn’t believe them and this put a huge strain on our relationship.
One evening we watched a documentary about cosmetic surgery. I connected and identified so much with the people in the programme and James was astonished to hear other people talking about themselves like I had for all those years. This was a huge turning point for me. I saw how cosmetic surgery had changed these people’s lives and I felt certain it was the right answer for me. We agreed that this would be a very special Christmas present and, even more exciting, it would all be done in time for the biggest day of my life – my wedding day.
I contacted and visited three cosmetic surgery companies and decided to go with Transform. My surgeon understood exactly what I wanted doing and why and we worked together to achieve the best possible natural outcome.
Once I had got used to my new nose, I realised another huge difference - my confidence and personality. People were very supportive, full of praise for how I looked, commented on how I held myself differently and how positive I seemed.
More importantly, I had the perfect nose for the perfect wedding to the perfect man. I couldn’t be happier."
