Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is not a one-size-fits-all procedure, and it is important that patients recognize that there are certain criteria that need to be met in order to be a good candidate for this facial plastic surgery. While it is possible to walk into some clinics and get a quick, cheap nose job, that does not mean that the results are the same as those from a renowned expert in the field. Dr. Kevin Sadati asks that all people in Orange County who are interested in having a rhinoplasty performed by him take the time to do the necessary research.
To begin, those who are interested should start by researching surgery information on Nose Job Newport Beach. On our website, there is a significant amount of information available on the various types of rhinoplasty procedures, as well as the risks and benefits associated with each type. To help patients make a better decision and allow them to visualize the impact that this procedure can have on their face, Dr. Sadati provides before and after pictures of previous patients.
Once a patient has done the necessary research and taken the time to decide exactly what they are looking for, it is time to set up a free consultation with Dr. Sadati. Typically, the consultation involves the surgeon doing a complete physical exam as well as a mental health exam. It is extremely important that all patients are both physically and emotionally prepared for cosmetic surgery. During this portion, the doctor will also look into several other factors that can impact a patient’s candidacy, including the size and length of the nose, skin thickness and amount of oil in the skin.
In addition to the exams, the doctor will discuss what the patient is looking for out of plastic surgery and what their ultimate goals are for the procedure. As a specialist in the field, Dr. Sadati uses high resolution computer imaging technology in order to help the patient imagine what their new nose would look like on their face. Photographs are taken of the patient. This helps Dr. Sadati to put together a plan of action for the patient, but also serves as a great reference to what the patient looked like prior to having the surgery performed.
The consultation appointment will last about 30 minutes, and during this time the surgeon will explain what will happen during the surgery as well as point out any possible risks to the patient. Once the consultation is complete, Dr. Sadati and the patient will decide together if rhinoplasty is the right facial plastic surgery procedure. If the person is determined to be a good candidate, a custom plan is created, and a pre-operative appointment is scheduled.
