Patient story #15 Ellis
“I’m a much happier, outgoing person with a new sense of self-confidence.”
- How we helped Ellis
After breaking my nose I was constantly bullied at school and throughout my teens about its size and shape. I was regularly called names and felt very self-conscious that people were staring at me. It was affecting which jobs I went for, my social life and I hated being in photos with friends.
By the time I was 16 I knew rhinoplasty was the right procedure for me and that nothing would stand in the way of getting it done.
- Feeling right
I had already looked into several clinics and had met with a surgeon, but didn’t feel 100% comfortable until I went to Transform. At my first appointment, the surgeon put me at ease, and empathised with my feelings - I had complete confidence in him.
At first, I didn’t like my new nose as I was still very swollen and bruised once the bandages were taken off. But I had complete trust in my surgeon and knew that the swelling would go down. It took three months and in the end I was thrilled with final result.*
- A much happier me…
Now, I’m a much happier, outgoing person with a new sense of self-confidence. I always knew my nose held me back, but it wasn’t until I went for a public-facing job that I realised just how badly it was affecting me.*
My advice to anyone considering a cosmetic surgery procedure would be: don’t panic straight after the operation, wait until you see the final results and you will be thrilled – I was!*
*Cosmetic surgery results and benefits can vary and are different for each individual. As such, Transform cannot guarantee specific results.
