Many people have negative ideas about rhinoplasties and they tend to create these misconceptions that are just completely false. For example:

  1. Many people think that only the rich can afford this procedure but in reality, plastic surgeons work with patients of all kind and try to work out payment plans that are at the patient's best convenience.

  2. Some patients believe that they will be able to get whatever nose they like but this is not completely true because doctors will tend to be honest about what nose will or won’t work on the patient's face.

  3. Some people believe that any plastic surgeon can do a nose job, but this is not true because some plastic surgeons don’t specialize in this field. It is best to choose a plastic surgeon who focuses on this type of surgery for the most natural results.

  4. If you think that a rhinoplasty is covered by insurance, you are completely wrong. The only time that insurance will cover the procedure is if it's needed in a non cosmetic way. For example, some patients need to get this procedure in order to help them breath.

If you are someone that feels as if they want a rhinoplasty, it is best to contact someone as specialized in the field as Dr.Kassir.
