Plastic surgery has become a commonality throughout the world crossing all invisible barriers such as age, gender, and race. The continuous growth of specialized cosmetic procedures combined with a comparable expanding customer base has created an unprecedented time void during doctor-client consultations. This void actually benefits customers as they are forced to explore any other concerns that were not covered by the physician during a consultation. Rhinoplasty, frequently referred to as a “nose job”, is a highly sought after transformation of the nose. The surgery can take place inside the nose to solve functionality issues, outside of the nose for adjustments or aesthetic purposes, or both areas can be worked on during surgery. Impending clientele that are thinking of undergoing rhinoplasty have specific considerations to contemplate before they commit to a life changing procedure.

Consider The Consultation To Be The First Step Towards Success

Clients want to make sure that they have an idea of what areas or functions they should consider for their rhinoplasty to discuss with the plastic surgeon. Time is already limited during a consultation and beginning with even the slightest idea will at least give some sort of direction to develop a treatment plan from the date of surgery through recovery. Patients are encouraged to write down any ideas or cut out pictures that illustrate favorable changes or outcomes of a rhinoplasty procedure.

Identify the Purpose

Some of the more popular cosmetic changes to consider are the removal of humps or bumps in the bridge of the nose, evening out the nostrils or aligning them with the other prominent features of the face. The most common functions that are requested to be restored include the ability to breathe out of the nostrils evenly, repairing a deviated septum or straightening of the septum to eliminate snoring. Both internal and external surgical practices can be completed during individual surgeries or combined during a more extensive rhinoplasty procedure.

Overnight Miracle Workers

Plastic surgeons are often labeled as miracle workers. Individuals that have never experienced plastic surgery believe in “overnight success, trusting that their chosen procedure will show desired results within 24 hours. However, during the consultation, experienced surgeons will walk clients through a step by step process from the point of arrival through several weeks of aftercare. Clients are expected to take part in their recovery process and it is imperative that they follow the exact directions provided by their surgeon.

Recognize the Finality

The universal knowledge surrounding a nose job is congruent with an everyday occurrence. This thought process results in patients underestimating the complexity of the surgery. Clients tend to forget that rhinoplasty involves altering or changing the functionality and/or visibility of the nose that is typically deemed permanent. However, there are publicized cases that highlight individuals that underwent multiple nose jobs to correct a previous procedure or they were on the brink of obsessiveness to perfect their nose. Patients should consider that multiple altercations to their nose is not typical. Surgeons have a duty to communicate the healthiest and safest route to achieve desired results.

The first successful rhinoplasty procedure was completed in 1887 in the United States. Nose jobs remain one of the most requested cosmetic procedures in the world. Advancements in technology related to global change have been essential to the general success in the plastic surgery field in relation to Rhinoplasty. Potential clients should take the time to explore the many considerations associated with Rhinoplasty. Exploration is an essential step to go through a
life changing and permanent transformation with ease and confidence.
