Dear lynniemac69, The objective of most surgeons is to make sure their patient is happy and if the patient surgeon relationship has been obstructed then often times the surgeon may refund the patient some or all of their fees however this is dependent on the surgeon and their practices. I would suggest at this time requesting a copy of your operative report and your pre-operative photographs and seek some second opinions with other expert surgeons in the field of rhinoplasty. After the second opinions you should be well informed of what corrections you may need and have an idea of the expenses involved. You may want to travel out of San Diego due to your current surgeons location there. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
Hi and thanks for your question. I'm sorry to hear that you have had problems following rhinoplasty. I would suggest that you seek a second opinion with a Nother very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. This would be someone who is also certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and preferably a member of the American Society for Aesthetuc Plastic Surgery. That's my advice after 30 years in practice performing rhinoplasty. Best of luck

More information is needed including a full set of facial photographs and the timeline on when the initial rhinoplasty surgery was performed.
