Is an Internal Nose Exam Standard Procedure at the Consult or Pre-op Before Rhinoplasty Surgery?
I underwent rhinoplasty 9 months ago to disastrous results. I was never given an internal nose exam prior to surgery and I'm wondering if such an exam is standard procedure. To be clear, my surgeon never looked up inside my nose through my nostrils until AFTER surgery during one of the post-op appointments. Is this normal? Many thanks for your time.
