Can I Suggest Changes on my Face That I Desire?

I want to have changes on my face that asian surgeons may not find "attractive as a girl". I just desire a nose and brow ridges that are more of a caucasians. Will I be able to suggest changes of my desire, and not of the surgeon's decision? Because I don't want to end up looking like everyone else who has undergone plastic surgery, and I think the nose I desire best suites me and my personality. I don't want anyone else making the decision for me.

Patient Contribution in Plastic Surgery Planning

+1

Patients can and should have significant input into their facial surgery. Through listening, computer imaging and any visual input from the patient, a realistic treatment is put together by the plastic surgeon. The input by the plastic surgeon is primarily for defining what can realistically be achieved, what the risks are and the recovery will be like and to suggest any procedures of which the patient may not be aware that can help achieve the overall facial goals.
