Nose surgery results may vary from patient to patient and surgeon to surgeon. It is important to review your surgeon’s nose job before and after photos to understand what type of results they are attaining. As you are reviewing, there are certain things you should be looking for with rhinoplasty results.
It is important to understand that every patient has different desires. Some want to keep a strong straight profile and some want more of a slooped nose. Some may want to keep their ethnic identity while others want a more Caucasian nose. Look for a nose that has similar features to your nose. Whether it is a wide nose, an ethnic nose, crooked, or has a hump, look for what kind of results were attained after nose surgery with a nose like yours.
Lastly, pay close attention not just to the result, but to the way the photograph was taken. Was the patient in a near identical pose before and after? Was the lighting similar in both photos. This can tell you a lot about how dedicated this surgeon is to perfection. Did they have similar makeup on before and after? Examine how the light now reflects off the nose on frontal view compared to beforehand. It should be sharper with a stronger focus towards the tip of the nose.
