The nose is a distinguishing facial feature; it’s no wonder men and women visit us wanting to know more about their nose reshaping options. Although their reasons for wanting rhinoplasty vary widely — some feel that their nose is too large, others too small, some think it is too projected, or not projected enough — the end goal of surgery is generally the same, to make sure the nose is naturally proportional with the rest of the face.
Making the decision to have rhinoplasty should not be taken lightly, though. A nose-reshaping procedure is one of the most delicate surgical cosmetic procedures, requiring a surgeon’s technical expertise, artistry, and meticulous attention to detail. In addition, patients need to know exactly what the procedure can and cannot do and understand the risks involved.
If you’ve been considering rhinoplasty for a while now, we urge you to ask yourself the following questions before making the final decision:
Do you have realistic expectations of the procedure?
There is no such thing as the perfect nose. Like all types of plastic surgery, improvement rather than perfection should be rhinoplasty’s ultimate goal. Wanting perfection from the procedure will only lead to disappointment. Think Michael Jackson! The most attractive nose is not perfect but simply in natural harmony with the rest of the face.
Have you considered the potential risks?
Like all types of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty has its own set of risks. The good news is that these risks can be avoided if you take steps to thoroughly prepare for surgery and recovery such as quitting smoking, getting enough sleep, and consuming a healthy diet.
Have you found the right plastic surgeon?
Your plastic surgeon, obviously, is the most crucial factor influencing whether or not you will achieve your desired outcomes, so you should take your time in selecting your rhinoplasty surgeon. Aside from solid experience in performing the procedure, you might also want to consider a surgeon’s communication skills. He or she should be a patient listener and be able to convey surgical details without using a lot of medical jargon. You should feel completely comfortable with the surgeon and the rest of his or her team.
