There’s a reason for the expression “plain as the nose on your face.” Your nose is right in the middle of your face, and if there’s anything wrong with it, you can’t hide it. It’s understandable that you’ll want it changed. That said, you should be very clear in your mind about the reasons for this change. Before you commit to spending the money and permanently altering your appearance, you should discuss your reasons for doing this with an expert. Not necessarily a psychologist — that would just mean spending more money.
Instead, talk with the surgeon himself or herself. A good facial plastic surgeon regards this sort of discussion as an integral part of the process. Even the best surgeon needs to know exactly what you want and hope for if he or she is to give you a result that will satisfy you. It will help if this surgeon has imaging technology in his or her office to show you what your face will look like with a possible new nose. And a surgeon who’s been in business for a long time has learned that it’s more important to have as many satisfied customers as possible than to sell each one as much plastic surgery as possible.
A rhinoplasty Charlotte NC surgeon must make infinitesimal changes in living tissue — skin, cartilage and bone of various consistencies. He or she needs great skill, a lot of medical knowledge and an intuitive sense of human facial aesthetics. Look for a surgeon who has been in business for years, or decades if possible. The longer a surgeon has been in business, the more different noses he or she as seen and the better he or she will be at tailoring the individual nose to the face. Looking at his or her gallery of before and after photos will also help. Also, try to find one who has been certified by more than one surgery board. Look on realself.com for a surgeon with lots of positive testimonials.
