Help with Rhinoplasty decision!

I want to get a rhinoplasty done but I'm scared to go through with it. I have a very wide and flat nose and Iv'e hated it my whole life. I have been to many consultations and each doctor said a different thing. One said I should get a rib graft then the other said I shouldn't get any grafts because it would eventually show through my nose. He said I should get a non surgical nose job.

Then another doc. said fillers were dangerous and I shouldn't get it done. I'm not sure what to do. I'm posting pictures because I need advice and opinions on what I should do. I want to do the right thing so HONEST opinions are welcome.

Re: Help with Rhinoplasty decision!

It depends what type of skin you have and the natural cartilage you have in your nose. I had a nose like yours and went with Medpor, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Who are the surgeons you saw? Did you like their work, their reviews?

This is what you need to know:

1) Read reviews of your selected surgeon on the internet
2) Ask what they use for post-op swelling (kenalog), pain, and if you need minor revisions
3) WRITE AND REVIEW WHAT THEY SUGGEST. My own surgeon recommended medpor because he worked well with it. In hindsight I wish he had used something else. Rib is natural, that's why it is suggested. The other options are silastic, goretex, and natural nasal (septal, for example) cartilage. Or suturing of boxy cartilage together.
