Rhinoplasty is worth it

I see many patients in consultation for nose job surgery or rhinoplasty and it seems at times that they may be unsure as to whether rhinoplasty is worth it. Last week I had a patient come in 6 days postoperatively for their first postop visit, as per usual, and I removed the cast and tape. After handing her the mirror, she burst into tears and began to cry with joy. She absolutely loved her new nose! This is not an uncommon response I have had from other patients when revealing things after rhinoplasty. It’s reactions like these that truly warm my heart and make my job so rewarding.

Nose surgery for changing the shape of the nose can truly enhance one’s face and allow focus to be placed on the eyes, lips, and hair. A good rhinoplasty is not seen in the nose, but in the eyes.
