On your first consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will ask you about what you would like to change about your nose and your expectations about plastic surgery. The cosmetic surgeon will evaluate the structure of your nose and face then discuss various options with you. You should inform your surgeon about any previous nose surgery or nose injury.
Your cosmetic surgeon will guide you on how to prepare for the surgery: how to eat, drink, smoke and take or avoid some certain vitamins and medications, and also how to wash your face. Your surgeon will also explain the factors that could influence the procedure and the results, such as the structure of your nasal bones and cartilage, the shape of your face, the thickness of your skin, and so on. An explanation of the requirements for anesthesia, as well as the risks and costs involved, will also be provided. Please inform your plastic surgeon about any allergies or breathing difficulties you may experience as the result of taking any medications, vitamins, recreational drugs, or smoking.
Prior to surgery, you should ask as many questions as possible and clarify any concerns you have regarding the expected outcome. Rhinoplasty should be undertaken only after considerable thought and discussion with experienced professionals. Rhinoplasty is not considered appropriate for teenagers due to the emotional and physical adjustments required after surgery.
