A lot of my friends over the years have gotten nose jobs. They were actually a common graduation gift in my town. I feel like a lot of them ended up looking really unnatural and obvious. How do you make sure that you get a natural result?
My personal philosophy of rhinoplasty focuses on one essential goal – to achieve a result that makes the patient happy. With this essential goal in mind, I take a conservative approach to rhinoplasty and seek a natural, unoperated look. I avoid over-aggressive resection maneuvers. I focus on maintaining structural support, and seek a natural "unoperated" appearance. I have provided before and after surgical photos in my websites that I hope reflect my approach. 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.
