    Hi Everybody!!!

    Im learning about passive causative, and I know in spanish that thing doesnt exist... I need your help about this...
    "Ella se hizo una cirugia en la nariz" I did this way: "She had his nose.." and that´s it because i dont know more...

    Thank You....

    Hello. I think you may be looking for: She had an operation on her nose. (Or as we say more colloquially: She had a nose job.) Hope this helps.

    Hola Nena,

    "She had her nose done/ altered"

    You can also say "to have a nose job" even though that is not passive causative.

    You could also simply say "She had a nose job."

    No. Any of the other options are good, though.

    If it's the passive causative you want, the suggestions made by guayaca and unchartedwaters are the ones (along the same lines as "I had my hair cut", "He had the house repainted" and "She had her golf clubs polished").

    Also, "She had her nose done / fixed."
