3 Factors That Make a Rhinoplasty Candidate

The following are the factors Dr. Buonassisi looks at to assess the candidacy of a patient for rhinoplasty surgery.

  1. People who have realistic expectations about what can be achieved.
  2. Patients who are hoping for an improvement and not necessarily perfection.
  3. And lastly, I think it's important to realize that rhinoplasty or any cosmetic surgery isn't going to change your life; this is going to change your nose.

If you're happy with making a nice change to a nasal feature that tones it down a little bit or makes it less of a prominent facial feature, you're going to be happy with a rhinoplasty.
