Ok so, I'm 17 and turning 18 this month. I have a disfigured face, well, not like Joe Merrick's or anything like that, but... my chin is HORRIBLE, and I have weird lips and a weird nose. Some people do make fun of me in school, and I'm not attractive at all at the moment. I talked to my parents aboout it two years ago but they always said '' noooo you're soooooo beautiful don't ever get surgery '', I gave up because they thought I didn't need it. We discussed this topic a few months ago again, I said '' look at my face! You are my parents and think I'm perfect but I'm not. Look at my chin, my lips and my nose! I need surgery! '', it took me a few attempts but they finally gave up.
Fortunately, I have amazing, blue, nice-shaped eyes, and ( chin aside ) an amazing face shape. Fortunately my problems are fixable, so I think I'll be pretty after surgery, but in the meanwhile I have to keep living with this face. It'll take long for my parents to save enough money, because they don't make much. I'm happy they're helping me and I'm grateful, but it's been 4 months and they've only saved 700 euros so far, that means it'll take a few years and I won't get plastic surgery any time soon, but... I'm just ashamed of my face because I basically have three DISFIGURED features and I'm sick and tired. I can't wait to get surgery, I'm sure I'll be pretty because the rest of my face is amazing and my surgeon says the same ( my cousin's best friend is a surgeon ). Help please?

I'm sure your face isn't disfigured. You may strongly hate those features of your body but your not a crash or burn victim or something catastrophic like that. Since you work and shouldn't have as many bills as your parents hopefully your saving most of your money so you can get the survey YOU want. In the meantime try not to worry about it. Life is too short. Go out and enjoy life.1

Try getting a job on the side, it doesn't have to be grand, perhaps baby sitting. I want you to know what you are in for though.. that type of surgery is very invasive and incredibly painful not to mention you have to find a suitable surgeon or you could end up more disfigured, dead, or with a serious health problem. This isn't just as simple as getting surgery. You also need to have therapy. You are so hyper concerned with how you look once you get the surgery it's highly likely you'll be more insecure. That's what no one says about plastic surgery. Once you've done it the more you want it.1
