Rhinoplasty: Q&A

Rhinoplasty: Q&A with Mike Majmundar, MD

Q. Can I have a celebrity nose?
A: Remember that your nose needs to look good in the context of your face. In order to have a similar outcome as someone else’s nose, the facial features and skin type have to be similar, which isn’t usually the case.

Q: What type of changes can I undergo?
A: It comes down to age, type of nose, skin type, ethnic background, previous history of nasal surgery and medical history. It’s best to find a board-certified plastic surgeon who can give you all of your options.

Q: What is the cost?
A: The cost varies based on the surgeon’s experience, credentials, and the amount of work needed. Don’t bargain shop for this procedure—it costs more to have a revision than it does to have it done right the first time.

Q: How do I find a good surgeon?
A: Make certain that your board-certified facial plastic surgeon specializes in rhinoplasties. Choose a surgeon who is personable, approachable and will listen if you should have concerns later.
