Taylor and his nose

(Note: The following is a dramatization.)

Ever since he was a small child, Taylor’s nose and ears had always seemed a little too big for his face. His parents had otoplasty done to fix his ears before he was old enough for kindergarten, but even his friends joked about his nose.

His mom and dad told him he’d get used to it, and he did… until his teenage years, when he became more and more self-conscious about his nose. At fourteen, a surgeon let him know that 17 was the earliest age recommended for boys to undergo teen rhinoplasty, so he was going to have to wait.

But using computer imaging, the surgeon was able to show him what his face was likely to look like after surgery. This showed Taylor that what he really needed was work on his chin, hot his nose. Fourteen was also too young for chin surgery, but not too young for temporary fillers that did the same thing.
