5 Things You Shouldn’t Forget To Do Before Rhinoplasty

5 things you shouldn't forget to do before rhinoplasty

Like with any other plastic surgery procedure, you should be well-prepared and know what to expect in your rhinoplasty procedure. It can be very overwhelming deciding who to see what you should know with such a big decision. We wanted to make this process a little simpler—here are a few recommendations to help you decide on which plastic surgeon to choose for your surgery.
     1. Research several plastic surgeons

It’s always a good idea to research a few plastic surgeons that perform rhinoplasty in your area. This way you’re not limiting yourself to one surgeon. Plastic surgeons will all have a different level of experience and approaches to rhinoplasty.

Speaking to different surgeons allows you to understand a few things. You’ll know what to expect in your procedure and how your surgeon will approach your surgery. You’ll also see if they understand what your needs are and if you feel comfortable with them. There are cases where people rush into their procedures without doing much research. It often ends with regret and trips to other surgeons for revision surgery.

     2. Ask a lot of questions before committing to surgery

     When speaking to surgeons, ask them how often they perform rhinoplasty yearly. Ask them how long they’ve been performing nose jobs. Don’t be afraid to ask “tougher” questions either. Ask if they’ve experienced any complications and what they did to resolve them.

      3. Look at before and after photos

      It’d be strange if a surgeon didn’t have a website or photos to show their work on previous patients. Make sure to go through the surgeon’s galleries of before and after rhinoplasty photos. This will give you a clearer, visual idea of what kind of results they’re capable of. If possible, you can reach out to the surgeon’s past rhinoplasty patients and ask them about their experiences.

      4. Read online reviews

      Several online communities and rating websites can show you what other patients are saying about plastic surgeons and their work. Some of these websites include RateMD, RealSelf and Yelp. Of course, there’s always a chance that the review is biased, exaggerated or fabricated. In general, you can still get a sense of what to expect after reading everyone’s opinions about the surgeon, their experience and their professionalism.

      5. Get 3D imaging of your nose before the procedure

      If you want to see what your nose can look like after surgery, get your photos taken with the Vectra 3D imaging system. This computer imaging system takes pictures of your nose and face at different angles. This way, there won’t be any surprises. Seek a plastic surgeon that has this technology and can perform it during your consultation.

You’ll be more confident and prepared after doing extensive research. Having rhinoplasty is a major decision, so don’t be afraid to take your time during this process.
