Transcript: Today I want to talk about how Dr. Patel helped me with my confidence and my outlook on life because of one small, simple thing that he did to my nose. Every single morning when I wake up, I always look in the mirror, and I get super annoyed by the bump on my nose. As you can see right now, there is no bump on my nose. It is fantastic! But, never have I gone under the knife or received any surgery.
I'll tell you a little bit about why I wanted that bump gone. When I was 16 years old, I was in a car accident with my boyfriend at the time. I was in the passenger seat, and we were hit head-on by a drunk driver, and the airbag deployed and I went through that airbag so hard that not only did it break my nose, it also put third degree burns on my face. After a time of healing and everything and as the years went on, all of the sudden, I started to grow this little bump. This bump kept getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and come to find out when you break your nose and it heals itself, a little bit of calcium deposit starts to grow on it. So, it made a little bump there, which is not too bad. It doesn't really bother me that bad, but the fact of the nature is that when I look in the mirror, I get reminded of this horrible accident that I had and this horrible boyfriend that I had, and the fact that because of what happened, it's going to remind me every single day. I could see it. I could feel it.
So, Dr. Patel gave me a couple ideas, and he injected filler right into my nose, right here. Just a little bit of filler. Never did I do surgery, and I don't have to worry about this bump. I don't see the bump; I don't feel the bump. When I left his office that day, I sat in the parking lot and cried because I was so excited.
You should never be embarrassed to do something that helps with your confidence. Confidence is a hard thing to come by these days, because of social media, and it puts so much pressure on us, especially as a female. If it helps you and your confidence and it makes you feel better about who you are, then do it! I had nobody to impress but myself. All of my family members, my husband, and everybody, they told me nothing was wrong with my nose. But it was a sad reminder every single day of my past, and I didn't want to think about that anymore. Because of the fact that I went to Dr. Patel and he helped me out, not only have I increased my confidence, but I'm just super excited to the fact of that part of my past is gone.
Go ahead and take a look at my before and after photo; I'm super excited to show you. Then go ahead and give Dr. Patel a call because he will fix your nose too, without surgery.
