Is a preoperative consultation for rhinoplasty necessary? What does it imply?
First of all, rhinoplasty is a medical procedure that cannot be performed without a preoperative consultation, not only because our plastic surgeon at Renew Skin and Health Clinic must talk to you about the risks that a nose reshaping procedure involves, risks like infection, bleeding and bruising, but also because the plastic surgeon must perform a medical history check and a physical exam.
For instance, there are cases such as pregnancy, when you cannot undergo a rhinoplasty. Besides this, our Renew Skin and Health Clinic practitioner will see how thick your nose skin and cartilage is and what your expectations from the rhinoplasty procedure are. Despite the fact that you want your nose to look in a certain way, that may not be possible, or you may need further touch-ups, in order to get as close to the desired outcome as possible. In any way, your expectations must be realistic and you must agree on this with the specialist.
More importantly, during the specialized consultation, your surgeon will take photos not only to compare them with the after results but also to introduce them into the computer and create the image of what he /she can achieve for you through the nose reshaping surgery. After completing this entire process, if you are still sure about undergoing the rhinoplasty procedure, our plastic surgeon at Renew Skin and Health Clinic will be able to perform it for you and help you achieve the desired results.
