Selecting Rhinoplasty Surgeons, Health Risks, Recovery And Costs
With nose surgery you can finally lose humps, crooked shape, misshapen tip and overall size. Rhinoplastyrevision requires top surgeons, certain health risks, recovery factors and costs to plan for.
Getting The Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon And Managing Health Risks
Phase 1: Researching Nose Surgery. Face it. You’re contemplating cosmetic nose surgery for a reason… you’ve been troubled by your appearance…or you’ve had a past accident which damaged your nose’s symmetry…and now’s the time for managed change. Plastic surgery procedures for the nose ‘cover a waterfront’ of options and procedures… reducing over-sized noses… re-contouring noses… straightening nasal septum… removing bumps and humps… softening and re-angling the tip of your nose… reconstructive or rhinoplasty revision procedures to clear obstructed air passage ways… artfully sculpting cartilage, bone and tissue into a more proportioned shape. You need to form a general concept of what your appearance or nose-functioning needs are.
Phase 2: Interviewing Surgeons. Reputation, technical skills, training, a history of successful rhinoplasty procedures… happy clients and more go into selecting the best rhinoplasty surgeon to meet your needs. Here’s what you need to do. Take photos of yourself, frontal and side-profile. Study the photos carefully. Make a written list of questions and issues that you need information in order to become comfortable about… types of cosmetic nose surgery procedures… patient preparations… nature of results… health risks… length of operation… recovery issues… costs and more. Schedule 1-on-1 interviews. Pose your questions. Listen carefully to each candidate’s reply. Look for informed, experienced and empathetic manners from your surgeons. Ask for patient referrals and overall cost estimates.
Phase 3: Patient Referral Checks. Are other patients happy with the results of their nose surgery procedure? Was it reconstructive or cosmetic? What went right… and what went wrong? What about recovery? Risks? And were estimated costs the same as actual costs? How many days lost from work?
Phase 4: Verify Surgeon’s Credentials. Your State medical licensing board will be able to verify whether your candidates are in good professional standing, along with their training and educational experience. Make sure that there are no complaints or litigation in process with your candidates.
Phase 5: Patient Preparations. Avoid any meds that may interfere with your rhinoplasty surgery. Don’t smoke. Don’t drink alcohol. Get advice from your doctor.
Phase 6: Surgery Risks. Nose surgery risks include scarring, unless incisions are performed from within the nostril… bleeding… infection… bruising and swelling and the potential for tissues failing to heal…allergic reaction to anesthesia… risk of surgeon’s technical error in either under or over-compensating the removal of cartilage, bone and soft tissue, or aesthetic judgment mistakes resulting in a badly contoured nose.
Phase 7: Recovery. You’ll have time off from work. Most likely you’ll wear a nose splint after rhinoplasty surgery. Bruising, swelling and tenderness will ‘hang around’ for several weeks.
