Thanks for the answer. You are right about looking for another opinion about the mesh in the nostril area. It seemed odd to me. I really went to get a consultation about correcting my obviously broken nose and didn't anticipate getting the deviated septum fixed. He said it was severely deviated but I was checked on my deviated septum years back and was told it wasn't that bad. All the talk about changing my "downward sloping" tip of my nose was not something I anticipated. I simply need my left bending broken nose fixed! This specialist was at Johns Hopkins, and is quite young. I guess you are right - I need to find another surgeon for the nose. Thanks for your answer.
