surgery is one of the most common types of plastic surgeries. It gives individuals the opportunity to either subtly or dramatically transform their face with one simple change. However, undergoing rhinoplasty can leave many patients feeling uneasy about whether or not they picked the right size and shape of nose. Here are three tips to help:   What’s the Main Problem The first question you should ask yourself and relay to your doctor is, what is the problem with your current nose? Is it too big? Do you get congested easily? Is it crooked? Do you have a large bump on the top of your nose? By addressing the problem with your nose, both you and your doctor can work together to come up with a surgical plan to eliminate the problem and give you a fresher looking face.   Subtle or Dramatic When it comes to rhinoplasty, some individuals just want to make a few subtle changes to the appearance of their nose, whereas other individuals want to completely transform the way they look. During your initial consultation be sure to relay your feelings to your doctor in regards to whether you would like a more subtle or dramatic change— that way, you don’t leave the recovery room with a nose you’re not at all fond of.   Look Up Pictures Another great way to pick the right nose for you, is to bring in pictures to show your doctor. Look through magazines and pictures of celebrities that have what you deem to be “the perfect nose.” However, make sure you take into consideration your facial structure and features. For example, if you’re looking at a very petite nose on a very petite face, but your face is fuller and you have more poignant features, then that nose might look a little out of place. Make sure you consult your doctor on what pictures and types of noses would look best with your facial structure.   When it comes to picking the right nose for you, it can seem like a challenge. However, by following these three tips, you can get the nose of your dreams.
