Should I have rhinoplasty?

+1

Rhinoplasty is a personal decision, and is completely up to the patient. For the right candidate, rhinoplasty surgery can make great improvements to the nose. A rhinoplasty can help improve the appearance of a crooked nose. It is not possible to get the nose 100% straight, but improvements can be made. I would recommend a consult with a board certified and experienced rhinoplasty specialist. He or she may use computer imaging software to morph a photo of you and give you an idea of how the final result of surgery may appear. This also serves as a great communication tool, as you will be able to critique the image and give feedback. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
