Rhinoplasty – Is it Right For You?

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is more than just a cosmetic operation to improve the appearance of your nose.
Surgery carries danger, as does it.
Selecting the greatest surgeon is crucial for this reason.
In order to ensure you get the results you want our surgeons explain what you should know and what questions to ask.

It’s Important to Choose the Right Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Even though rhinoplasty is a frequent cosmetic operation, many plastic surgeons elect not to do it due to the numerous difficulties it offers.
Form and function are closely related in the nose.
The structure of the nose can change cosmetically, which could negatively impact breathing.
However, many surgical procedures intended to enhance nasal airflow might have a positive or negative impact on looks.

Because of this, a limited number of surgeons handle a significant part of rhinoplasties.

What is the price of a rhinoplasty?

The reason(s) you require or want the operation will determine the answer.
If the surgery is carried out to improve the appearance of the nose, it is regarded as elective and is not covered by insurance.
This can entail flattening or changing the size or contour of a hump on your nose’s bridge.

If there is a medical condition, such as a nasal obstruction, or if surgery is required to address breathing issues, your insurance plan may pay a “functional” procedure.
If there are issues with functionality and look, some of the surgery might be reimbursed by insurance and some might not.

Should You Consider a Rhinoplasty

Consultation with a surgeon experienced in this surgery is the initial step.
In order to grasp your personal aesthetic and assess your needs, the surgeon will examine your nose and ask you questions.
One of the surgeon’s most crucial abilities is listening.

Your nose will be examined both on its own and in relation to the size and form of your face during the physical examination.
To achieve harmony, the nose should emphasize the features of the face that it shares.
Today, ethnicity is a significant factor.
While maintaining the inherent beauty of a particular culture or ethnicity, aesthetics can be improved.
The facial analytic skills of rhinoplasty surgeons have greatly improved over the years, and they are likely more wary of unreasonable requests for alterations.
They are aware of the restrictions placed on rhinoplasty as well as the issues that arise when these restrictions are crossed.

Issues You Should Address

Find a board-certified otolaryngologist (ENT) or plastic surgeon who specializes in all areas of the nose.
Never hesitate to ask questions.
Your doctor should be honest and forthright, not rude.

Verify that rhinoplasty is a top priority in their line of work.
The facility and the workers ought to be trustworthy.

Find out if you’ll be put to sleep or given general anaesthetic.

Inquire about the surgeon’s rate of revision.
Expect a rate between 5% and 7%, even among the greatest surgeons.

Set realistic expectations

It’s crucial that you and your surgeon talk about reasonable expectations.
Before-and-after images of rhinoplasty are frequently displayed on television programs and online videos, often appearing to have been shot the day following the procedure.
Results do not appear immediately after the bandages are removed; they take time to manifest.

It can be helpful to show your surgeon images from magazines so they can see what you think is appealing.
However, be aware that direct comparisons might be harmful, particularly if your face structures are not at all comparable to those of the people in the images.
