A woman who had desires to forge a successful modelling career, has opened up about her botched nose job which was butchered by the same plastic surgeon, twice.
Appearing on E! reality show Botched, the woman explains she’s had to give up her modelling dreams because of the unfortunate cosmetic results.
“When I was 16, I got advice from a photographer who told me if you want to make it in this business, you’re going to have to get a nose job,” she explains in a piece-to-camera.
“I didn’t think I needed a nose job and I was actually kind of insulted,” she continues.
“After I moved to New York to pursue modeling, I just kept getting the same feedback and I noticed that the girls who got the jobs had thin noses.”
It was at this point she decided to go under the knife.
“Immediately after the surgery, I knew something was wrong,” she says.
“First of all there was a piece of cartilage sticking out. He [the doctor] kept telling me, ‘oh it’s just swelling, don’t worry’, but I knew something was wrong because my nostrils were different sizes and shapes.
“I was mortified.”
The woman decided to go back to the same doctor, who agreed to operate free of charge.
But the results were worse.
After a few weeks, the nose started leaning to one side, and she decided to “just forget it” and give up on her modelling dream.
