Realistic Expectations in Rhinoplasty

There are a variety of reasons why men and women consider rhinoplasty — the nose may be too large, too small, too projected, or too broad. Others find that the base is bulbous, too wide, or droops when they smile. Whatever the reasons behind it, the ultimate goal of rhinoplasty is to make the nose appear balanced and in harmony with the rest of the face.

During their initial consultations patients discuss their specific concerns, and they talk about achieving perfect nose-reshaping outcomes. When it comes to rhinoplasty outcomes, we continually remind these patients that seeking perfection is unrealistic.

Seek Improvement Rather Than Perfection
When opting for plastic surgery such as rhinoplasty, the patient needs to seek to improve his or her appearance without expecting flawless outcomes. It’s unreasonable to expect that a nose-reshaping surgery will save a marriage, help you bag a promotion, or improve your life for the better.

Finding the Right Rhinoplasty Surgeon
Aside from having exceptional surgical skills in performing rhinoplasty, the surgeon of your choice should also have in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and carefully consider each facial feature when creating a personalized rhinoplasty plan.
