How do I know if my expectations of rhinoplasty are realistic?

If something about your appearance bothers you, then it is very real to you. It's important to have a thoughtful and thorough consultation with a rhinoplasty surgery in order to determine whether or not your concerns can be addressed surgically. The more common concerns that patients have about their noses include a nose that is too big for the face, a large hump on the bridge, a crooked nose, a tip that is too big or bulbous and a nose that is too wide. There are many other concerns that patients often bring up as well, and it's possible to be unhappy with the appearance of your nose after a previous rhinoplasty surgery. The best way to ensure the highest success when it comes to rhinoplasty surgery is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with, make sure that he or she understands your specific concerns, and make sure that you understand what can be accomplished surgically to help you achieve your goals. As long as you are all on the same page and comfortable, then there is a very high chance that you will be happy in the end.
