Some patients may have had their nose surgery years earlier, or even as far back as 20 or 30 years ago. Prior surgery using outdated or unsuccessful techniques may have left the patient's nose unattractive, unnatural in appearance or with breathing problems. As a result, they may be less trusting now than they were with their first surgery—and understandably so. In experienced hands with very careful planning and state-of-the-art techniques, rhinoplasty can now produce successful results that are natural-looking and predictable.

Dr. Thomas Hubbard.
Rhinoplasty consultations take considerable time and discussion. Most patients are surprised at the depth of detail involved in the analysis and planning for rhinoplasty, especially for revision rhinoplasty. When available, old records are carefully reviewed.
Clearly, the consultation is the appropriate setting for thoroughly educating the patient about what can be accomplished and, of equal importance, what may not be accomplished. We meticulously analyze the problematic areas of the nose, separating them into individual areas and discussing what can be done for each problem.
There is no substitute for frank and honest discussion. At times, Dr. Hubbard finds moderate patient satisfaction with the initial surgery performed elsewhere, but realizes it did not completely meet the patient's expectations. Options to further refine the nose are discussed. Occasionally, Dr. Hubbard must explain to the patient that further improvement cannot be expected because of a number of uncontrollable factors, such as thickness of the skin.
During most consultations, however, Dr. Hubbard is optimistic that the patient's situation can be nicely improved. He is able to explain how considerable and exciting reshaping of the nose can be brought about with careful planning.
