Correction of a crooked nose is a common request among patients seeking rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty surgery. The rhinoplasty consult is an opportunity for both the surgeon and the patient to obtain an understanding of the potential outcomes from rhinoplasty surgery. This includes the possible surgical outcomes as well as the potential for patient satisfaction with the procedure. Effective communication between physician and patient is the cornerstone to the successful and effective rhinoplasty consult.
