Can Botched Rhinoplasties Result in a Removable/fake Nose?
- Asked by ElizabethL in Olympia, WA

I want a nose job, but I'm so scared of it going wrong. Is it possible to end up with a fake/removable nose like Michael Jackson? What's the likelyhood of ending up with a botched surgery?
Concern about having botched rhinoplasty
The fear of ending up with a Michael Jackson nose is actually quite common among patients. The more conservative techniques that are more common these days make such an outcome quite uncommon.
To help prevent such a result I would encourage you to consult with a few board certified facial plastic surgeons or plastic surgeons who have a lot of experience in rhinoplasty. Examine their before and after photos to see that you like their overall results and aesthetic judgement.

It is extremely unlikely to have that severe a complication with standard rhinoplasty techniques. It is important to seek a board certified surgeon who is well trained in rhinoplasty surgery. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
