As a cosmetic surgeon in practice for nearly 30 years, I have found rhinoplasty to be my favorite operation. Hardly any surgery gives patients more satisfaction than a well planned and executed rhinoplasty procedure.
This procedure is something they and everyone else sees every day for the rest of their lives. So the stakes are high. Sometimes the slightest alterations, which are preferable to drastic changes, can make the biggest impact and produce safer more reliable results. My favorite cases in particular are young female patients who are very attractive but feel self- conscious about their nose. One frequent comment I get a lot is “I got my daddy’s nose!” Often times they do not have a feminine nose to match their face. When the nose fits in harmony to the face one can appreciate the overall beauty of the face, rather than the eye being drawn to a flawed feature like a large nasal hump. From the surgeons stand-point, the rhinoplasty procedure is a life-long learning procedure. It is the most difficult surgery to master. When I get the result that I am striving for, and have a happy patient, then it makes all the hard work and years of study worth it all.
