Suggest natural way to correct upturned nose

Heloo, I am a 34 year old male. I have an upturned nose...not really a pug nose, honestly, it's more of Brad Pitt type nose...women tell me I'm very handsome, but I literally feel like I might be suffering from body dysmorphic disorder...I feel ugly all of the time, look at the floor, not very social....I just wonder, I find myself kind of pulling on my nose during the day sometimes, trying to kind of stretch it so that it is not upturned. I know that cartilage can be stretched to some degree, and honestly, after years of doing this several times a day, I can see a slight improvement. Just wondering if you know of any other natural ways to alter a nose? A nose job is out of my price range.

Thanks for contacting HCM

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your body image especially your nose. There are no natural treatments to change the look of your nose. Instead of thinking about your nose I would recommend you start working on your self image and self esteem.. There are some good self help books that would help you develop a more healthy self image.

Hope this helps answer your query. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us again.
