I would like to bring some photos of noses that I have seen in magazines and would like to modify mine to resemble. Could you work with this?
I think it is a good idea to let you surgeon know exactly what it is that most concerns you about your nose. I also think it is a good idea to show him pictures of some of the noses that you think are appealing to you. As your surgeon, I will examine you during the consultation and then let you know the particular issues that I believe can be improved with the surgery. At this point, I will take pictures and place them on my computer, where I will perform digital imaging. We will then go over the digital imaging and see if the ideas you have regarding your ideal nose are possible to realize for you. Although every nose is different, there are some features that can be given in certain cases. For example, if a patient wants a tip rotated up, this can be incorporated in the procedure. Although noses cannot be duplicated, certain features can be translated during surgery. It is important to realize that all noses are different and that surgery cannot duplicate an exact nose.
