Five Things to Consider Before Your Rhinoplasty Procedure

by

Whether you are opting for BOTOX, liposuction, a Brazilian butt lift or rhinoplasty procedure, cosmetic plastic surgery performed by a board certified Toronto plastic surgeon can make lasting changes to your appearance, beauty and confidence.

A rhinoplasty procedure - or more commonly called a "nose job" - is a popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that can effectively address features of your nose that you just aren't happy with. This could be size, shape or contours.

If you're unhappy with the appearance of your nose, it's important not to rush into a rhinoplasty procedure. I always recommend doing your homework, learning about the procedure and discussing the benefits and risks with an experienced Toronto plastic surgeon. It's very important to determine if this cosmetic plastic surgery treatment is the right choice for you, your body and your future. Let's take a closer look at this popular procedure and explore whether a rhinoplasty procedure is a transformative journey you're ready for.

A Rhinoplasty Procedure and the Concerns You Have with Your Nose

It's very important to know what you would like to change about your nose and facial appearance before the rhinoplasty procedure is performed. Even if you are just unhappy with your nose but can't pinpoint why, discussing your appearance with a talented cosmetic plastic surgeon can help you develop a clear plan for your future look. I always take the time to get to know my patients, their needs, goals and expectations. This allows me to effectively develop and perform a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that is in line with those expectations.

Patients who seek a rhinoplasty procedure often have struggled with self-image issues related to their nose and facial appearance. This can impact self-confidence and happiness. Many are unhappy with the size, shape and structure of their nose. This could include a nose that is too big, too small, too pointed, too wide, too narrow, too straight or crooked. Rhinoplasty procedure can help address these concerns.

Other common changes that patients want to their nose and facial appearance are the removals of humps or bumps, improvements to harmony and symmetry, re-sculpting the tip of the nose, reducing nasal width, or adjusting the size of the nose and nostrils. Other patients might even look to rhinoplasty procedure to address troubles with breathing.

A rhinoplasty procedure is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that can address a variety of concerns you might have. By listening to your needs and goals, we can develop a tailor-made rhinoplasty procedure that addresses your specific goals. Because there are so many different solutions that rhinoplasty can deliver, I place a big focus on working with you to ensure we're delivering results that you can be proud of.

Realistic Expectations When it Comes to a Rhinoplasty Procedure

A rhinoplasty procedure is an intricate and complex plastic surgery procedure. Before undergoing this cosmetic plastic surgery journey, I cannot stress how important it is to understand what to expect from your surgery. We'll walk through the entire procedure step-by-step, but if you aren't undergoing your procedure with our team, be sure that you have an open conversation with your cosmetic plastic surgeon so you can be prepared and comfortable.

Depending on the type of rhinoplasty procedure we perform (open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty), small incisions will be made inside your nostrils or between the nostrils. We will then re-sculpt, shape and re-contour your nose to its desired size and structure.

Once the desired changes have been made to your nose during the rhinoplasty procedure, we will suture the incisions. Our approach is designed to limit the amount of scaring. You will experience some swelling and bruising immediately after your rhinoplasty. But as this dissipates, you will begin to see the beautiful results of this cosmetic plastic surgery procedure.
When you're considering your rhinoplasty procedure, be prepared to schedule in some time to recoup and rest. While there will be limited pain and discomfort after your cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, it will require some time off.

Together we will plan your recovery and ensure your rhinoplasty procedure delivers results.

Your Rhinoplasty Procedure and Your New Appearance

It's important to understand that a rhinoplasty procedure will in fact change the way you look. This cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is designed to transform the appearance of your nose and face.

I always stress to my patients that it may take some time to get used to your new, more youthful and symmetrical appearance. Whether we are reducing the size of your nose, re-sculpting its shape or reducing the size of your nostrils, a rhinoplasty procedure will have an impact on how you look.

Even if your nose is re-contoured exactly to what you are expecting, it may take some time to get used to your new appearance. To ease any shock, we'll spend time before the rhinoplasty is performed to discuss the impact of any change. We can provide images and projections of how your rhinoplasty will change your appearance so you can make the right decision.

A rhinoplasty procedure can deliver amazing results. Together we'll help you love the way you look.
