Why you Need a Rhinoplasty Consultation
- Posted on: Feb 15 2018
Like any cosmetic procedure, you want to make sure you have a complete understanding of what to expect before, during and after you have the surgery done. A nose job officially called rhinoplasty, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. It is used to treat medical issues as well as enhance one’s appearance. If you are considering getting a nose job, consider the following.
What to expect during your consultation
If you want to remove a hump on your nose, straighten the bridge, make the nose bigger or smaller, reshape the tip, or correct the nose after an injury, rhinoplasty might be for you. To make an informed decision, you will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Orna Fisher. During your meeting with the doctor, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations along with what annoys you about your nose and what you’d like to adjust. Remember that there is no such thing as a perfect nose. That ‘ideal’ nose you want that your favorite celebrity has may look quite different on your face. This is because you have a distinctive bone structure and facial features that are unique to you.
Dr. Fisher can help you identify the proper adjustments that can be made to your nose to enhance your appearance. During the evaluation, Dr. Fisher will examine and evaluate the structure of your nose and other facial features. This will help determine what changes are realistic and fall within your expectations. The doctor will also review your general health, risks, recovery, and the costs involved. Once you have determined how you want your nose reshaped or adjusted, Dr. Fisher will discuss the specific technique that will be used for your situation.
During your consultation, Dr. Fisher will also address the rhinoplasty recovery process. After the surgery, a nasal splint may be required for the first week to help with healing. Swelling and bruising are expected and normal, but will begin to improve after the third day.
