If you’ve been considering the decision to get a nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, perhaps it’s because of a desire for aesthetic improvement or to correct a blocked nasal passage. In either case, rhinoplasty can improve your quality of life. But just like any surgery, it is most crucial to choose the right surgeon to ensure the best results.
Here is a short guide to help you through the Rhinoplasty process.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. The motivation for rhinoplasty may be to change the appearance of the nose, improve breathing, or both. The upper portion of the nose structure is bone, and the lower portion is cartilage. Rhinoplasty has the ability to change bone, cartilage, skin, or all three. When planning rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon will consider your other facial features, the skin on your nose, and what you would like to change. If you’re a good candidate, your surgeon will customize a plan for you.
Choose the Right Surgeon
Because rhinoplasty can be a complex operation, it’s imperative that you put your surgery in the hands of the most qualified surgeon you can find. It requires a firm understanding of underlying cartilage and bone structures that make up the shape of the nose.
A board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in rhinoplasty has the most extensive training in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. With over 30 years of experience in the plastic surgery field, Dr. Widder has performed countless surgeries. His patients trust him to help them reach their aesthetic goals because of his genuine care, natural aesthetic eye, years of experience, and incredible, lasting results. Patients’ well-being is Dr. Widder’s ultimate priority, and he will do everything he can to provide his patients with natural results in the safest manner possible.
Have Realistic Expectations
An essential factor to consider before undergoing rhinoplasty is understanding what is possible with the surgery and what is not. The nose enhancement surgery can improve your nose appearance beautifully by altering the shape, size, and angle of your nose. But you must be realistic about your expectations and trust your surgeon’s opinions.
With your goals in mind, Dr. Widder will develop your surgical plan. Your underlying facial structure will dictate what is and is not possible, which is why it’s important not to expect the nose of a particular celebrity. It may be disappointing to you in the future, considering that the actor’s nose does not look cohesive on your facial structure. The best way to prepare for your surgery is to have a thorough discussion of what you can expect with your plastic surgeon.
Take Advantage of Your Consultation
Your rhinoplasty consultation is an opportunity for you to ask a myriad of questions and voice any and all concerns. It also allows you to understand the details of your upcoming surgery. During your initial appointment, Dr. Widder will give you all of the necessary information to help you make an informed decision and explain the benefits and risks associated with the operation.
