Question: Twice in the past few months I have had someone comment rudely on the crookedness of my nose. It looks misshapen to me and always has. I would like my nose reshaped with a simple rhinoplasty. Is there such a thing as a simple rhinoplasty or do all nose jobs have some degree of danger associated with them?
Answer: There is no such thing as “simple surgery” period. All surgery has risk and dangers. Obviously if you go to an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon, he can make a complex surgery appear simple and a bad surgeon can mess up a potentially “simpler” kind of rhinoplasty. I would have to see your nose and examine you to see if there is anything that can be done to straighten your crooked nose and if so, what needs to be done. Rhinoplasty is the most complex of ALL cosmetic surgeries and patients and surgeons get into trouble when they do not give it the respect that it deserves.
