Many people look for ways to correct the way their nose is shaped either for aesthetic reasons, or to solve problems with breathing. This has led to rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, being one of the most popular plastic surgical procedures performed year after year. Choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your rhinoplasty is one of the most important things you can do when planning your surgery.
Considerations when choosing a nose surgeon include:
- Past performance
If you find a board-certified plastic surgeon who has lots of experience, your outcome for a successful nose surgery will increase. Looking at the before and after photos to see the work will give you some idea of how your own nose may look. You will also be given the names of prior rhinoplasty patients to speak with about their own experience.
During your consultation about your nose surgery, you should feel comfortable enough to ask any question you need to so that you understand what the surgery entails.
Leaving the consultation armed with knowledge and knowing you are in good hands means that you will feel good about the choice you have made.
