I had the occasional comment about my larger-than-life nose at school (I look like Worzel Gummidge), along with the ‘flat as an ironing board’ slights on my appearance.

And there were plenty of times between then and about five years ago when I would spend hours poring over cosmetic surgery sites.

But when push came to shove, and I finally saved up enough for the procedure, I decided to buy a house instead.
