Does fixing a pixie type of nose require the surgeon to have special skills?
Yes, it does. Ultimately, success in rhinoplasty is based on well-developed judgment, wisdom, and accumulated knowledge and experience. Like most surgeries, rhinoplasty is both a science and an art. Skill comes from experience and wisdom, combined with a measure of talent. The surgeon must have a detailed understanding of the multiple anatomic variants encountered. The surgeon must also have accumulated the appropriate surgical techniques and experience.
