ASK DR. YAGODA
Question: Can a rhinoplasty or nose job surgery make my nose look like the model’s nose in this magazine ad?
Answer: That depends on how many similarities you have with the model you have selected. Each feature on your face indirectly impacts the other structures. For example, if you desire a cosmetic procedure that will reduce a large bump on the nose, that may transform eyes that looked close together and make them appear more normally spaced. In fact, the eyes haven’t changed position at all. If you have similar facial structures, and your skin is similar, results may be imitated by a skilled plastic surgeon. It is not possible to look exactly the same, but there may be a resemblance.
