Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Consultation
Nose surgery is a fairly customizable plastic surgery procedure. However, your surgeon will evaluate your candidacy after discussing your goals and needs in a comprehensive consultation. You should ask questions and communicate openly to make the most of this initial consultation. This will help you understand the various aspects of the rhinoplasty procedure.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz provides rhinoplasty to patients in Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio; Southeastern Michigan, and surrounding locations.
The cosmetic surgeon you consult with will first try to understand the particular features in your nose that bother you. They will ask you about choosing a nose job procedure. You should share all your inputs in an open manner for allowing the doctor to create a nose reshaping cosmetic surgery plan that best meets your specific cosmetic goals.
Providing Medical Records
Plastic surgeons need to know the current overall state of health before performing a surgery. They will collect information about your past medical history. It is recommended that you arrange to have your medical records sent to the surgeon’s office from the physician’s office or hospital. This should be done before the first consultation.
You should also reveal preexisting medical conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, allergies, heart diseases, and neurological conditions. This information will allow the surgeon to make important decisions regarding your candidacy for the procedure and to help you plan for a smooth procedure.
You should tell your surgeon about all the drugs and medications that you take, such as prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, herbal supplements, and vitamins. You should provide complete information about alcohol consumption and smoking since this can be important to the surgical plan.
Pictures and Testimonials
You should ask to look at before and after images for nose job when you visit the surgeon for an initial consultation. This will help you clearly understand the results you should expect. It will also help you develop realistic expectations from the procedure. Ask the surgeon for past patient testimonials and before and after images. This will help you in understanding the procedure better.
Discussing Treatment Plan
Your surgeon will be able to create a treatment plan based on the information you provide. The treatment plan will be customized for meeting your specific requirements. The following aspects are usually covered in a treatment plan:
- Type of procedure used for the nose surgery
- Anesthesia options and surgery location
- Cost of surgery
- Insurance and financing options
- Post-operative recovery schedule
- Procedure results
- Potential complications and risks that may arise during the procedure
The initial consultation is a great opportunity for patients to communicate their concerns and ask questions about the procedure. This also allows the cosmetic surgeon to learn more about the aesthetic goals of the patient. It’s critical to have an honest and open conversation with the plastic surgeon.
This will help create a relationship of mutual trust and understanding. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz receives patients from Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio; Southeastern Michigan, and nearby areas for nose job.
