A Manchester-based property developer got a nose job and said it was the best decision he had ever made.
Daniel Warwick from Manchester, UK, who had been insecure about his nose, decided to undergo a rhinoplasty in February 2018.
According to Daily Mail, “He was prompted to have the surgery after seeing a photograph of his nose in profile which he did not like.”
Warwick was a little reluctant before finalizing his decision, but in 2018 he eventually took the plunge and spent £6,000 on a nose job.
“[When I was younger], I did not really understand what a plastic surgeon was. I was a bit scared because I thought that’s only what women do,” he told FEMAIL.
Warwick told the outlet that he began his procedure as soon as he saw his photo in which he didn’t like his side pose.
“It’s not really a man thing,” he said. “So I have never really paid attention. But when I was a lot older someone took a picture from the side and I fully realized, ‘whoa I need to change that actually,’”
He added, “Originally my mum was not supposed to come with me to the surgeon because I told her “listen, I’ll be ok I don’t need anyone with me.”
“You know, acting like a man would. Two days before the surgery, I rang my mum and told her to come with me for mental support.”
The 34-year-old English man said that he spent a night in the hospital for the surgical procedure and got his bandage removed a week later.
“A few months later, my swelling had gone down, and I could appreciate his new look, although not all of my friends and family noticed a difference,” he said. “No one knew I had an operation. I was expecting people to say you look different. None of them did.”
“Of course, you had a couple of people who knew me very closely who looked at me from the side and said, ‘hey something’s different here,’” he continued. “And then I had to tell them, the people who were shown the before and after, they all say, “Oh my god, you know?”‘
After his rhinoplasty, Daniel became more self-conscious and decided to work on his physical fitness as well. He joined the gym and made the workout a regular habit.
The property developer also said that men hesitate to undergo surgeries, especially if their sole purpose is to enhance their facial features and looks.
“I presume that a lot of men and women have this thing done and I presume also that a lot of men will look down on other men doing it because it is not a manly thing to do.”
He further added that he spoke to a couple of men who had undergone facial surgeries and other enhancement treatments. They were all so reluctant to share their experiences openly due to the fear of being ridiculed.
“One said to me, ‘how do you tell people freely you have had a nose job?” he said. “We are programmed as human beings sometimes to think something is negative when really it’s positive i.e. men having plastic surgery.”
“Why can’t men have it? If it makes you feel better then absolutely. Yes, there is a lot of people that do hide it. And when I speak to them it’s only with other men. If it was a woman they would say it.”
Mr. Warwick concluded his interview with FEMAIL by saying that he might not get another treatment because after fixing his nose, he is quite satisfied with how he looks now.
“I’ve actually learned to love myself after this operation and I am who I am. I learned to live with it. Am I perfect? I am just a normal human being but I learned to love myself and that’s what is important.”
