The best way to determine how your nose will likely look after your rhinoplasty is to evaluate before-and-after photos of your surgeon’s past patients. Though your nose job will be altered to best fit your face and to suit your individual features, seeing photos of real patients will give you a feel of your surgeon’s style and potential. Always be as clear as possible when communicating your goals to your surgeon so as to ensure that you are both on the same page before moving forward.

When rhinoplasty is performed by an experienced surgeon with great credentials, it can yield a fantastic result. I would recommend seeking an in-person consult with a board certified specialist in your area. They may use computer imaging software to morph a photo of you, which will give you an idea of how the final result of surgery may appear. A good surgeon will be able to create a nose that complements your features and is in harmony with your face. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

How Will Nose Turn Out after Rhinoplasty

   The dorsal hump can be reduced, and the tip can be reduced substantially.   These two maneuvers will dramatically improve your nose.  Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

 A rhinoplasty certainly help  de-project the nose, and  refine the tip, and remove the hump. Consider a chin implant to give more projection to the chin  for better facial balance.   Adding a chin implant will make the nose looked less projecting. Computer imaging can be done in the  surgeon's office,  or on our website below,  which can give you a very good idea of your anticipated results.  It  is always best to seek out a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon for the best results

You can reduce the size and width of your nose with rhinoplasty surgery. As long as you have selected an experienced surgeon, don't worry. I know is easy for me to say, but your anxiety is normal. Consider a chin implant which will also help improve your facial proportions, which is the reason you're having the rhinoplasty.

Computer imaging, especially the new 3-D Vectra is a great way to see potential results from rhinoplasty

Computer imaging can be used to demonstrate potential results from rhinoplasty. It is only inaccurate if too much is done on the image. I make sure that everyone understands it's only a projection. However, it is a good way to estimate how you can look. That can help with people who are nervous about surgery and anxious about upcoming surgery.
