I think you're being wise, Fran, checking it out, seeing how you feel about it and leaving any decisions until afterward Once upon a time I really wanted to have mine done, after a lifetime of my parents and sister giving me grief about my nose. My sister had one of those perfect "Hollywood" noses. From that came my first practical introduction to kharma. Purdue, my GSD, broke her nose for her -- head on collision with the top of his head (I TOLD her to move, that was part of his version of playing chicken). She didn't listen; ever since then she has a big hook in her nose . . . and she always had a high pitched nasal voice and that made it even worse. Now, I think I'd look odd with a "fixed" nose Perspective changes a great deal over time, as you grow.
