What should I talk to my surgeon about before my rhinoplasty?

ANSWER

You should talk to your surgeon in advance to describe your goals and learn about the risks and benefits.

You should also ask your surgeon for information on what it will cost. If you have health insurance, talk to your health insurance company so you're clear on what will be covered and what you will pay for.

Health insurance companies usually don't pay for plastic surgery unless there's a medical reason for the operation.
