|Some believe French have the perfect nose|
Our new series will try to present some of the new inventions in beauty industry and also attempts to find out if they are worthy or not. We all know how important looks are in this day and age, and the extreme lengths some females can go to appear more attractive in the public eye or simply in the mirror.
We could debate and discuss the topic for long hours, wondering about the reasons and presenting examples even from history, from the age of corsettes to the body modification of some tribes; however, in the end we might realize looks were never as important as today. And as the saying in German goes: Wer schön sein will, muss leiden. So one has to suffer to be beautiful. How true is that? Except few of the luckiest, who are really blessed with a flawless body and face, we common girls-women have a hard time living up to expectations. The question is: how far can we go? (A question of taste and common sense too.) And another question is what we can afford.
It became ordinary to hear about celebs and everyday people going under the knife, whether for liposuction, breast augment or a terrible duckling-like trout pout. And nosejobs are definitely on top of the list. Very few are satisfied with this significant part of the face that can influence your appearance so much, from better to worse. Most would say their nose is out of proportion: too big, thick, pointy, slant or humpy. Everyone has a unique nose, so unique nose problems too.
And now comes the real breakthrough and the brand new technique that inspired this post! The thingy. The thingy is now avaliable under many names, from many companies, seems like everyone's trying to sell it. You can Google it as nose right, find it as nose huggie and nose up; the last two are probably a spin-off of the first one. However, the thingy, the method and the idea is the same. Apply it, like a clip on your nose and (guess what) let it squeeze your nose to perfection. Give it two weeks or so.
Sounds like the biggest bullshit you've ever heard?
Well, in fact it has some anatomical explanation. Two-third of the human nose is cartilage, and it is made up of 75% water. They say, with time and persistence we can shape this material like plasticine. Would it be so simple and a real "alternative to rhinoplasty", as they present it? Oh well. If we do some research on the net, we find that people say it actually works. In this case is not about a ridiculous amount being thrown out the window: the thingy doesn't cost more than 6 pounds.
There is one major problem with the product though. People, like noses, are different. We do not all experience the same nasal problems. It might work wonders for an afro-american, or whoever wants a thinner nosebridge, but how about the rest? The pointy, the slant, the humpy and so on. Can we be sure it will achieve the desirable shape... or something even worse than the initial? No, we can't. It is more like giving everybody a haircut with a ruler: it could go well with some, but most will complain.
If you think this clip can change your nose and life for the better, get one, if you realize the nose is a complex organ save up a little and contact a good plastic surgeon for a unique and personal solution.
Are you smarter in the second case? We think so.
