Thinking about seeing a nose surgeon in the hopes of having rhinoplasty (nose surgery) done? If so, then you are probably unhappy with the overall appearance of your nose and want to correct its imperfections. Before you commit to a nose job, however, there are a few things you should know.
It’s Not a Simple Procedure
For starters, while a nose job may seem simple enough, understand that it is actually one of the most complex plastic surgery procedures in existence. There are many factors that must go into a successful rhinoplasty, including careful planning and skilled hands. Therefore, you should not choose just any plastic surgeon to trust for your procedure; instead, rely on an experienced surgeon like Dr. Kevin Sadati, who serves Newport Beach and Orange County.
One Size Doesn’t Fit All
Furthermore, realize that there’s no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” nose; what may look great on one person may not be right for your facial proportions and structure. You cannot simply point to a celebrity’s nose and say, “I want mine to look like that.” Instead, your ideal nose shape and structure must be carefully determined based on the rest of your facial proportions. This is something that only an experienced cosmetic surgeon can successfully do.
Not Every Candidate is Equally Viable
Finally, while most people are candidates for rhinoplasty, some people are better candidates for a successful nose job than others. Specifically, younger patients with greater skin elasticity tend to see better results and don’t run into the otherwise common problem of having too much excess skin leftover on the nose after the procedure. Younger candidates also tend to have less revision recovery.
Furthermore, a clear complexion and strong nasal cartilage are also great things to have if you are thinking about having rhinoplasty done—even though they are not necessarily required.
As you can see, there’s a lot to understand about rhinoplasty before you decide to go through with the procedure. And at the end of the day, choosing the right surgeon will make all the difference in your results as well.
