In brief: Communication

It is very important to communicate to your surgeon in clear terms what you want changed.
Take your own pictures and print them, then use a dry erase marker with fine tip to show your doctor the changes you would like. You can also use other individuals photographs to tell your physician what features your like in a nose. Make sure that your surgeon repeats his plan to you and it is what you want.
