The Right Nose for the Face, or Adventures in Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is not just a 20th-century cosmetic procedure.

There is not a lot of firsthand information out there from people who have actually gone through with it. I don't know anyone personally who has had rhinoplasty, or I would have certainly asked them for their insight. That is my intention for this blog- to be that experienced friend.
