Marissa and the bike crash
(Note: The following is a dramatization.)
Marissa had a perfectly shaped nose — had being the key word. When she was twelve, she took a spill on a bicycle and broke her nose badly. Her parents gave the important job of repairing her nose to the one doctor that both she and they trusted more than anyone else. This was her pediatrician.
It would be fair to say that no pediatrician in the Charlotte area could have done a better job of getting her nose back the way it was. That said, most plastic surgeons could have done better. Her nose set in a way that made it obvious it had been broken. Worse, the crookedness of her septum caused breathing troubles which led to sleep apnea, and the snoring kept the rest of her family up at night.
This was a big blow to her self-confidence just when she was starting to care whether boys noticed her. When she was fourteen, her parents took her to a real plastic surgeon, who let her know that next year she’d be old enough for teen rhinoplasty. This gave her something to look forward to for the next twelve months.
