Finding the best nose specialist is probably the first decision to make in rhinoplasty surgical surgery. After all, the only reason to go through this surgery is because of the unsightly flaws on your nose. To help you narrow down your choices, here are a few considerations to keep in mind. You should find a specialist who is well-trained in both the aesthetic and functional areas of your nose.
A good plastic surgeon should have experience working on both healthy and unhealthy patients. You need to know that not all surgeons are willing to work with those who are in need of aesthetic surgery. You also need to be aware of the different procedures that are available. You also want to look at a clinic where the staff consists of a mix of males and females.
You should make a list of questions before visiting the plastic surgeon’s office. The first question you should ask is what sort of prior surgical history the surgeon has. The surgeon should have no previous history of complications with his/her past patients. You should also request to see pictures of previous patients who received similar or the same operation. These pictures should show the actual results of the surgery. You should also be aware of any preoperative changes in the patient’s appearance before the operation.
You should also ask if the surgeon has performed any of the previous patients’ operations. This will give you an idea of how qualified the surgeon is. If the surgeon is inexperienced and does not have a track record of success, you may be better off with a different nose specialist. In addition, you will also be able to check with his/her colleagues and see how successful they’ve been. If you can find one surgeon that has been successful in more than one case, you can feel confident that your doctor will be able to successfully perform the rhinoplasty operation.
When interviewing past patients, take note of things that the surgeon didn’t mention. For instance, you should be aware of any complications that may arise during the surgery or that will be faced by your surgery after it is performed. These will include complications associated with the incision, post-operative infections, scarring, and complications from anesthesia. You also need to ask about any additional surgery that may be required to correct any deformities caused by the rhinoplasty. Other things that you might want to ask are how long the surgeon’s training period is. And how often the surgeon uses anesthesia. It is also important to ask if he/she performs nose surgery on animals or children.
Finally, you should ask to meet with the plastic surgeon in person to see if he/she answers all of your questions. Ask for a first-hand look at the facility where the surgery will take place and ask to tour it. Visiting a clinic for several visits and meeting with several doctors is not a good idea since different doctors can offer different levels of success. It is also important to ask if you will be asked to pay for any preoperative costs.
