Hey everyone... I have a few questions and I was wondering if you guys could help me.

I'm a 18-year-old female, and I was originally going to have a nose job last December in Richmond, Virginia. I'm a small person, and my nose is not terrible but it throws off the balance and harmony of my face. I have my father's Jewish- ethnic nose. It was going to cost around $8,000 (which is a lot of money for a Richmond surgeon... but there are hardly any plastic surgeons here...) At that last minute, my parents (who were paying for the nose job) backed out and cancelled my surgery, and we planned to get my rhinoplasty this May. Last week I went to the surgeon with my parents for another consultation, and after we left my father said I could not get it done... because he is worried about the health risks and the anethesia. I, however, am willing to take this risk because my nose has always bothered me.

I have the money to pay for the surgery myself, and legally I know I can get this surgery without permission since I am almost 19. However, since I am still under my parent's health-insurance, and my dad will not sign, will that cause suregons not to want to operate on me?

Also, since the cost was high in Richmond ($8,000) I was planning to look somewhere else since I can probably get a much better suregon in a bigger city for about the same price. Any suggestions for surgeons in New York City or another big city on the East Coast? I was thinking about Thomas Loeb, Thomas Romo III, or Nicholas Tabbal.

Thanks for your help.

From the doctors you listed, I've visited with Dr. Tabbal, and met one of his patients. Very natural job. The girl had an alar base reduction, and some tip work. No scarring. He puts you on a regimen prior to surgery consisting of vitamin K and some other stuff.
