A Property Developer who underwent a nose job after years of insecurity says it’s the best decision he ever made

This man had a nose job and is proud of the decision he made. The 34 years old property Develop Daniel Warwick hated the way his nose looked since he was a teenager and finally took the decision of his life and underwent a £6,000 rhinoplasty in February 2018. 

He was encouraged to have the surgery after seeing a photograph of his nose in profile which he did not like.

He told FEMAIL: ‘[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.

‘It’s not really a man thing. 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”.’

Mr. Warwick said that shortly after the photo was taken, he started the process of organizing the procedure, which included holding a consultation.

‘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,’ he continued. 

‘You know, acting as a man would. Two days before the surgery I rang my mum and told her to come with me for mental support.’

After seeing Mr. Alex Karidis for the treatment, Mr. Warwick spent the night in the hospital and had the bandage taken off the following week.

After a few months, the swelling had subsided and he could enjoy his new appearance, but not all of his friends and family had noticed.

He continued: ‘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”. And then I had to tell them, the people who were shown the before and after, they all say, “Oh my god, you know?”‘

As a result of the nose job, he started to look after his body and joined the gym. 

The 34-year-old said: ‘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 continued by saying that he spoke to some men who had undergone surgery but were hesitant to inform others for fear of being laughed at.

‘One said to me ‘how do you tell people freely you have had a nose job?’

He continued: ‘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 are 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.’

Daniel continued by saying that it is likely that keeping the surgery a secret and refusing to discuss it will have an impact on men’s mental health and that they need assistance and to watch out for one another.

‘I’ve actually learned to love myself after this operation and I am who I am. 

Daniel said that after his procedure, no one knew he had an operation. He expected people to say he looked different but no one did other than people who knew him very closely

‘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.’

Linda Evangelista returns to modeling for the first time since her cosmetic procedure left her ‘permanently deformed’

Supermodel Linda Evangelista has announced that she is again back in the modelling business after previously revealing a cosmetic surgery treatment she claimed left her “permanently disfigured,”

The Canadian runway sensation frequently graced the pages of fashion magazines and was recognised as one of the top models of the 1980s and 1990s.

The 57-year-old announced in an Instagram post from last year that she has paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH).

The “fat-freezing” operation, which has received FDA approval, is marketed as a “non-invasive alternative to liposuction.” Sadly, Linda experienced a “rare adverse effect” where her fat cells expanded instead of diminished, the reverse of what the treatment was intended to do.

In any case, the outspoken model’s first modelling gig in years has startled. The task involved a forthcoming Fendi fashion show advertisement.

Over the weekend, Evangelista posted a picture from the protest campaign to Instagram. She was dressed in a grey sweater, three pink caps on her head, stylish brown sunglasses, and gloves. She can be seen holding a few Fendi handbags while turning her back on the camera.

“On September 9 2022 @Fendi will host a special fashion show in New York City to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the #FendiBaguette, designed by @silviaventurinifendi, and two years since @mrkimjones joined the Maison as Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear,” she captioned the post.

This makes her return to the industry after a six-year hiatus.

In her September 2021 Instagram post, which was captioned, “#TheTruth #MyStory”, she said that her condition had “destroyed my livelihood” and sent her into “a cycle of deep depression”, which has made her become a “recluse”.

“Today I took a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years,” she began.

“To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers’ careers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised.”

Evangelista wrote:

“It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently deformed even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries.I have been left, as the media has described, ‘unrecognizable’.

“I have developed Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH, a risk of which I was not made aware before I had the procedures. PAH has not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing. In the process, I have become a recluse.”

She concluded by hinting that she is now taking legal action, and that she would like to live a life free from shame.

“With this lawsuit, I am moving forward to rid myself of my shame, and going public with my story. I’m so tired of living this way. I would like to walk out my door with my head held high, despite not looking like myself any longer.”

Fertility Expert says that Transgender surgery is ‘mutilation’ and sex ‘can’t be changed’

Gender reassignment procedures are considered to be “body mutilation,” according to a renowned fertility expert. Doctor and Labour’s life peer Robert Winston claimed that only gender can be changed and that people cannot change their sex because it is “genetically determined.”

We can change our gender, he declared on TalkTV’s Piers Morgan Uncensored. We can accomplish that by mutilating ourselves.  “We can remove bits of our body and change our shape and so on but you can’t change your sex because that is embedded in your genes in every cell of your body.”

He further added that “it becomes a problem because of course occasionally you end up with somebody who is born a male but then wants to become a female, so you can have that mutilating operation”.

Dr. Winston reopened the discussion of transgender athletes partaking in sport by posing the controversial question after making inflammatory comments.

<p>Lord Winston of Hammersmith, said people cannot change their sex because it is “genetically determined” </p>

He said: “But then the question is, should they be allowed to compete in sport because they still have some male characteristics that will give them an edge over other women?

“That is where the problem really lies. And social behavior in different situations- using toilets, using bathrooms- which understandably worry women.”

His comments were responded to by India Willoughby, Britain’s first transgender newsreader.

She tweeted her disappointment at the scientist’s opinions.

“They can mutilate their body … ‘ @ProfRWinston. What a horrendous thing to say. [Trans] people have existed since time in memorial [sic], children as young as 3 know they’re the opposite sex. Every culture. Natural occurring. Your [view] seems to be anatomy rather than brain dictates who we are.”

Fertility expert Professor Robert Winston says 'we cannot escape our  genetics' in trans debate

One Twitter user replied to the tweet, saying: “Is that same language utilized for those who make the decision to have cosmetic surgery on the body [sic] part? Or what about cosmetic dental work ? Is that “mutilation” too. Or just emotive language dressed up to cover transphobia?”

British Triathlon announced last week that there would be a new open category for men, transgender women, and non-binary athletes following months of political discussion regarding transgender athletes partaking in sporting events.
