Do Surgeons Always Impose Their Idea of an "Ideal Nose"?
When performing a rhinoplasty, do surgeons place more emphasis on what the patient wants or what is considered an aesthetically ideal nose? I ask because I had Rhinoplasty in which my nose was overshortened, despite my imploring to my surgeon not to shorten my nose. I then went on a consultation and the other surgeon disagreed with my desire to restore my nose to its original length, saying that doing so would create a nose that doesn't conform to agreed-upon aesthetic standards. This is frustrating; I want a nose that fits my face and is pleasing to me. Thoughts?
