Specialisation within the cosmetic surgery discipline and therefore a high number of operations being performed by a surgeon gives him great confidence based on his vast experience. This is true especially if he has acquired his specialised medical training in this area. Nothing is worse than a postoperative result that makes it obvious to everyone that an operation was performed.
An experienced and responsible surgeon must never rush to realise exaggerated patient expectations. An in-depth consultation, possibly assisted with a computer simulation, can be a means of persuasion in this regard. Safety over beauty – health of the patient is top priority. If an aesthetic operation would put the patient’s health in jeopardy, it should not be performed under any circumstances. And operations must always be performed so that normal functions are preserved, a principle that, unfortunately, is not always observed when it comes to the nose. In other words, what good is the most beautiful nose if the patient can no longer breathe properly?
