Today, Rhinoplasty is prevalent across the world and is well-accredited by world-renowned surgeons.

  1. Rhinoplasty treatment results are never perfect. Surgeons having good experience and highly accomplished in conducting the procedure deliver near-perfect results. Without technical expertise, artistic skill, and practical experience; achieving a good cosmetic outcome, is just next to impossible.
  1. With modern Rhinoplasty techniques, you can transform a distorted nose, often dramatically, however, expect the basic architecture to remain the same. Thus, you need to be realistic.

Reshaping nose by eliminating large amount of cartilage from the tip of the nose, is a wrong practice. By doing so, your skeletal support gets weakened, and you witness various abnormalities. Therefore, instead of removing the cartilage, your surgeons must preserve and improve the skeletal support by repositioning, reshaping, or reinforcing the tip of cartilage.

Despite positive results, you might not like your new looks, however, have some patience and give time for the outcome to become visible. If you are prone to have significant acne or have thick sebaceous skin, showing the desired results, is a matter of time.

  1. In case you have a minor imperfection, revision surgery is something you might consider. However, be aware about the fact that second-time surgery can bring more risk, and should only be done for repairing a poorly breathing nose.

Hence, take good time in assessing if at all you need to go for a second-time treatment, and act accordingly.
