The choice of a rhinoplasty surgeon is a very personal one. Every surgeon will have a different aesthetic bend and technique. Doctors that perform alot of Rhinoplasty will offer computer imaging. This educational tool allows the patient to "try on different options". While not a guarentee of results it does allow the surgeon and patient to have a common understanding of the goals of the procedure. An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will have multiple before and after pictures for you to look at as well.
With a large nose, I will generally recommend a closed approach, where the incisions are on the inside of the nose. I do not use packing on the inside of the nose, as this helps to decrease swelling and makes the patient alot more comfortable.
