‘It has only been 2 weeks and I can already see the results are going to be amazing. I had a previous broken nose and deviated septum so surgery was the only option for me. 

‘I am so glad I did it as I was nervous at first but so happy that I can now breathe properly and that the small bump has gone.’

Good morning 😊 So the cat is finally out of the bag 🙊I can confirm that I had a rhinoplasty at @elitecosmeticsurgery performed by the amazing @dr.aliuckan 👃 It has only been 2 weeks and I can already see the results are going to be amazing. I had a previous broken nose and deviated septum so surgery was the only option for me. I am so glad I did it as I was nervous at first but so happy that I can now breathe properly and that the small bump has gone 🙌 As I have stated before in previous posts I am NOT telling people to run out and have cosmetic surgery due to vanity. I am saying that if you want to get surgery, have been thinking about it for a long time and like me I had no other option then people should feel comfortable to and feel they won't be judged. This is the reason I have decided to be so open about it and not lie like others have as it's my body and my choice and people need to stop judging others choices, shaming body's and appearances and just get on doing you 😘
