Renowned plastic surgeons at the Institute of Aesthetic Surgery understand the importance of good patient-doctor rapport to achieve the desired results from rhinoplasty, or a “nose job” in layman’s term.
Good rapport between a surgeon and his or her patient starts with a consultation. This gives our surgeon a chance to identify if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty based on your goals and expectations, which of course should be realistic and achievable. It is also an excellent opportunity for you to assess if they are the right surgeon for you based on experience, certifications, and skill set.
Here are just a few topics that are discussed during the initial consultation for rhinoplasty in Orlando.
Your Physical Fitness
As a prudent patient, it is important to disclose your medical conditions, allergies, previous treatments and surgeries, and medications and vitamins. Take note that some supplements are best avoided prior to surgery.
You should also mention any breathing problems during your consultation. Remember that rhinoplasty in Orlando can be performed simultaneously with septoplasty and other nose surgeries that aim to improve its functions.
You should never omit, hide, or lie about your medical condition and drug use, including recreational drugs. After all, our surgeon’s goal is to eliminate risk factors so you can enjoy short recovery and the best cosmetic results possible.
Your Cosmetic Goals and Expectations
Being able to describe your realistic goals in detail will help ensure you get the results you are looking for. While you may bring your “wish pics” or photos of celebrities to help you explain your goals, take note that the ideal nose largely depends on your face, gender, and ethnicity.
Our Surgeon’s Qualifications
The general rule of thumb is to choose a surgeon who is board-certified to perform rhinoplasty, which is believed to be one of the most complex facial plastic surgeries. In fact, some experts even call this a surgery of millimeters.
You can assess our surgeon’s experience by looking at their before-and-after photos. If the photo gallery is an extensive one, you may infer that they have encountered a broad range of nasal anatomies, deformities, and breathing problems. This often means the surgeon is intuitive during surgery.
The initial consultation also gives you an opportunity to assess a surgeon’s bedside manner. First and foremost, your surgeon should be emphatic, thorough, and affable–traits that can make an anxious patient more relaxed and comfortable.
The “right” surgeon also respects and listens to your input. Don’t feel embarrassed or apologetic when asking your surgeon about their qualifications. Take note that good rhinoplastic doctors even encourage their patients to be inquisitive and proactive.
