Does rhinoplasty require a pre-op assessment?

Pre-op workup prior to a rhinoplasty
Hi and thanks for the question. Variability in the pre-op workout is common between different surgeons. Depending on your particular situation ( age, health history, etc), your pre-op workup will be determined. I would not be too concerned - and if you are, simply give your surgeon a call and inquire.
Best of luck,

Preoperative visits may be helpful for establishing realistic goals for those considering rhinoplasty.
