How do I know if a nose job is right for me? Also I would love to have one. I hate how far my nose sticks out, but don’t want a huge dramatic change

Dear Renee,

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!

Nose surgery or some procedure to improve the look and in some cases the function require an in depth analysis of the face and relationships of the face to the nose etc. In some cases minimal work maybe required, in other some major surgery. The concerns that you raise to ensure that the right procedure the right analysis and the right execution for the problem are all things that have to discussed, analyzed, explained and executed properly.
