The nose is at the center of the face, so if you are unhappy with the shape, size, or proportion of your nose, it can hard to ignore it. Many individuals who are unhappy with their nose will consider a rhinoplasty procedure. However, before booking your surgery date, be sure to take these steps beforehand.
Determine What You Want
While this may seem like an obvious first step, be sure to determine exactly what you dislike about your nose, so you can have a productive conversation with your surgeon. You can do this by taking a pen and paper and standing in front of the mirror and writing down exactly what you would like to change. It can also be helpful to find photos of others with noses that you like.
Do Your Homework
When undertaking such an important decision as cosmetic surgery, it is important to educate yourself on the procedure and when to seek a consultation. There are many ways that rhinoplasty can be performed. The open rhinoplasty technique involves the creation of an incision in the area of skin that separates the nostrils, or the columella. The closed rhinoplasty technique involves all incisions being created inside the nose. Both techniques have their own pros and cons.
Schedule a Consultation
One of the most important steps that you will take on your rhinoplasty journey is choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon. Be sure to choose a board certified plastic surgeon with experience performing rhinoplasties. You may need to schedule a few consultations with different surgeons before you find the right one for you. Remember, rhinoplasty surgery is a personal decision, so take your time in finding the surgeon that you feel will do the best job.
