Concerns Regarding Rhinoplasty
Anxiety should be allayed by the surgeon. It is important that the patient do their homework to understand the training and skill of the surgeon that they have chosen to perform their operation.
Once they have confidence in the surgeon, then the patient has to trust their judgement.
Even in the best surgeons hands 10 to 15% of patients require minor touchups seven or eight months after surgery. This may be a minor rasping of an irregularity of the bridge of the nose or minor adjustment of the nasal tip. A skilled rhinoplasty surgeon should be able to deliver a significant improvement for most patients who have a specific problem with their nose.
Deciding on a #Rhinoplasty
You should see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to get a formal opinion through and in-person consultation.
Best of luck,
