Consult for Alarplasty.

Communication between the patient and the surgeon is critical to getting the correct procedure and good outcome. You should go back you surgeon and explained in detail using a mirror and a Q-tip to point out the exact change you wish.

Make sure that he understands exactly what you are looking for, that he fully explains the procedure to your satisfaction, and that you understand his fees for the procedure. Ask him if it's possible for him to preview your results using imaging software. I find this is an essential communication tool before undergoing rhinoplasty. (Of course, if you didn't get a great vibe during your initial consultation and generally didn't like him, seek another rhinoplasty expert.) Good luck. -Randolph Capone, MD, FACS
