I Don’t Like My Nose Job. What Should I Do?

I Don’t Like My Nose Job. What Should I Do?

The nose is without a doubt, one of the most influential and identifying features of a person. Being at the center of the face, the nose is responsible for balancing one’s facial structure and creating a symmetrical and cohesive appearance. When it comes down to it, the nose plays a much bigger role than merely helping one breathe. 

Every single day, we see patients whose lives have changed after cosmetic nose surgery. It is inevitable that when you look good, you feel good. Everyone deserves to enjoy their appearance and feel confident.  

Unfortunately, occasionally we see patients who have learned this the hard way. They have had a rhinoplasty that they are not satisfied with and they feel hopeless. They feel that they don’t look like themselves and in turn, they don’t feel like themselves. They are ashamed to enjoy life in fear that individuals are taking note of their nose. If you have found yourself in this situation, don’t panic, it is fixable! The team at SurgeonGate is here to help you feel confident in your skin so you can get back to living your life to the fullest. 

Why would someone be unhappy with their nose job? 

There are many reasons why patients can become unsatisfied with their rhinoplasty surgery. The most common reason is their choice of surgeon. Many doctors are performing rhinoplasties, especially here in Michigan. Finding the right surgeon is essential to having a successful surgery. Many patients who look for the cheapest price, often find themselves unknowingly working with an unqualified doctor.  It is easy for a doctor in any specialty to advertise themselves as a plastic or “cosmetic surgeon”. Unfortunately, this is not only legal, but very common. 

Patients who have received operations from these “plastic surgeons,” may not even be aware they are not board-certified. Board-certified plastic surgeons are monitored and pushed to stay ahead of the latest techniques and safety protocols in plastic surgery.  

In addition, it is common for patients to receive cosmetic surgery from board-certified plastic surgeons not specializing in their field. Even though a plastic surgeon may be board-certified, it is good to be informed of their particular experience and specialty. Typically, patients receive the best results from board-certified surgeons who specialize in their treatment, at SurgeonGate we offer that.   

If you are looking for a board-certified rhinoplasty surgeon, feel free to contact us. We are on a mission to make cosmetic surgery safer and more effective by placing patients with experienced and specialized surgeons. When you contact SurgeonGate for rhinoplasty, we don’t just place you with a “good plastic surgeon”, we place you with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in, and has a passion for rhinoplasty and facial reconstruction.  

How can I fix my nose? Revision rhinoplasty: 

Revision rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty procedure on a patient who has already had surgery and is unsatisfied with their results. During revision rhinoplasty, the surgeon will restructure the cartilage and bones in your nose to restore its shape and help you feel confident and happy again with your appearance. If you are unsatisfied with the results of your rhinoplasty, the first step is to contact us and schedule a consultation for revision rhinoplasty.   

When meeting with your rhinoplasty Michigan surgeon, it’s important that you are very clear about how you feel and what you want to change. A good surgeon will not book your procedure until you have decided on a plan together, and the surgeon has a perfect understanding of your goals. Patients can even collect pictures of noses online that they feel resemble their goals to show their doctor.  

The most important thing to remember is that you are not unfixable. Every nose can be improved when you are working with a good surgeon. Patients who have had too much cartilage removed can even have their nose rebuilt with rib grafts, which you can read about in our previous blog post. If you are unhappy with your previous rhinoplasty and are interested in having a revision rhinoplasty with SurgeonGate, do not hesitate to contact us and let an expert reach out to you today.
