Question: If I bring in photos of a nose I like, is it possible to have my nose made to look like it?
Answer: No! Your nose is not a solid structure like a block of granite or a bar of soap. A solid structure can be sculpted into anything that fits within that size but your nose is made up of thin films of cartilage and bone with overlying skin and each patient has a different anatomy. Add to that the fact that each patient heals differently with different amount of scar tissue and giving you someone else’s nose becomes unrealistic. However, bringing in a picture of a nose you like or even a nose you don’t like is good because it will tell me your taste and I will know your goals better. Ultimately, using computer imaging, you can get a better idea of what may be potentially possible for your nose with a rhinoplasty.
