    It would be less than $1000 in fees for someone to come assist you. When is your surgery? I live nearby and am a nurse, I could come help you if you want? It seems a shame to cancel so close when you had yourself all ready!

    The science of L-carnitine supplementation is a little more complicated than this.
    'Acetyl L Carnitine' has been show to be beneficial for fat loss, however studies have shown that it needs to be taken with a high GI carbohydrate (in order to induce a large spike in the metabolic hormone insulin). Typically, the traditional "post-workout meal" consisting of protein and carbohydrates is where this supplement would be ingested in the literature. The theory is that the increase in insulin shuttles the L-carnitine to the mitochondria thereby helping the body to preserve muscle glycogen stores whilst burning fat.
    The time of day that you ingest l-carnitine does not figure in the scientific data whatsoever, as human metabolism does not clock-watch in the same way that our circadian rhythm contributes to sleep.
    Not only does the science impose implications for successful use of L-carnitine for weight loss and fitness goals, people who use this amino acid-like supplement need to be mindful of their macro-nutrient targets, and other dietary behaviours such as nutrient timing, issues surrounding fasted states, low carbohydrate vs high carbohydrate diets etc, as many people will choose to avoid insulin spikes for health or medical reasons.
    L-carnitine is also a dose dependent. Prominent American Exercise Physiologist (and contributor to bodybuilding.com), Jim Stoppani, recommends that while a dose as small as 1gm can be effective, it is best to take 2-3gm per dose for maximum effectiveness.
    If you want to try L-carnitine, be prepared to use high doses, which can be quite expensive. Also, you have to be willing to ingest high glycemic carbs for the supplement to work its magic! Currently, researchers are focusing more on how this supplement can enhance athletic performance, rather than ways that it can enhance fat burning.

    I don't even know him and fortunately  this site has helped me to find good surgeons and a lot of guys and girl i met online do like him and are happy. Idc if you are gonna do a review or not, my point is instead saying he didn't do a job on u or needs more work done maybe you can help  us by telling the truth and all. Yes sorry what happened.

    mizdawn reacted to exhaustedstudent in Sick of my nose   
    I've never been happy with my nose for as long as I can remember being conscious of my appearance. I am of mixed ethnicity, with half of that being Middle Eastern so it's hardly surprising I don't have a tiny little white girl nose. I grew up in a very white area of Sydney so I do question my own perception of my nose because I have had the requisite mean comments/bullying over the years which have probably shaped my own opinions. 
    Having said that, I have definitely had various trauma to the area over the years and definitely have a deviated septum. Unsure whether this is genetic (my mother also has it but it doesn't affect the symmetry of her nasal bridge like it does mine) or caused by accidents while growing up (I am very clumsy and tend to fall over/bash into things a lot, and there was also one time when my cousin threw a hard plastic toy at my face which I remember hurting a lot but didn't cause any bleeding.) 
    Anyway, I have always wanted to get my nose fixed. Over the years I have come to accept the size (I actually like the fact that it's an ethnic marker, and I think it looks pretty in profile) but it's so messed up and asymmetrical from a front on view. I have also been experiencing a lot of breathing and congestion problems which is unpleasant to say the least. 
    Earlier this year I decided to actually see an ENT about it so got a referral from my GP and had a consultation. He was very nice and confirmed my congestion and that my septum is deviated, but recommended I be allergy tested and try some decongestants. I have tried some of that, I know I am developing allergies, but I also really want some cosmetic solution. I have watched so many of those shows about botched plastic surgery which makes me nervous because I don't want to change my face completely, I just want the best version of MY nose. I would like it to be straight and symmetrical and I guess more defined at the bridge and nostrils from front on? 
    I have booked another appointment with the ENT for next week to discuss my options. I don't have private health cover and am a student so not in a position to pay a lot of money, so would be looking at the public health system.
    The other thing is that I objectively don't have the best, most accurate view of myself. I had severe eating disorders for many years starting in childhood so I'm prone to overanalysing/seeing fault where there is very little. This makes me scared of pursuing cosmetic surgery as well because I question how noticeable something is from my subjective viewpoint vs what others objectively see. I want help without someone trying to convince me that I am even worse than I originally thought. 
    I guess I just want some input to see if anyone with similar concerns has had good outcomes through surgery, and from whom; or if anyone has been in a similar position and not gone ahead with it/why?
