Over the years, rhinoplasty has consistently been one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States. Thousands of people go under the knife every year in pursuit of the perfect nose.

However, rhinoplasty also has the highest rate of revision among cosmetic surgeries. This is because the nose is extremely complex, and rhinoplasty is a difficult art to master. Unfortunately, many unqualified surgeons routinely perform nose surgery, often with disastrous results.

Rhinoplasty stories that have gone terribly wrong and how to avoid this. From facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theodore Diktaban in NYC and Long Island.Rhinoplasty Goes Very Wrong

Hope was already a beautiful girl, but she decided that she could enhance her beauty by seeking a rhinoplasty to make her nose smaller. The outcome was not as she had envisioned: her nose looked unnatural, pinched, and too thin.

It was an unattractive “cookie cutter nose”, which many unskilled surgeons perform, as they don’t have the expertise to customize a nose for each patient. The surgery also left her nasal structure so fragile that when she injured it accidentally, the entire nose became asymmetrical.

18-year-old Mor Glisko was just trying to feel better about herself. The vibrant college student had been involved in an unfortunate auto accident the year before, and wanted to make the scars on her nose less noticeable through rhinoplasty.

It was the last decision she would ever make. Tragically, the teenager died during the procedure. For religious reasons, the family did not elect for an autopsy, so it’s unclear whether this was negligence, or just a tragic accident.

Avoiding a Bad Outcome

Don’t become a sad plastic surgery story! One of the most important decisions you can make regarding your nose job is selecting a surgeon with rhinoplasty expertise, an excellent safety record, and a customized approach to each patient’s nose. You don’t want to set yourself up for a costly revision…or worse.
