What should I ask my doctor during rhinoplasty consultation?

Rhinoplasty ConsultationFirst & foremost, it is important that you consult with a surgeon who is Board Certified.  This ensures that they meet a strict set of criteria which are very important when considering a rhinoplasty, as it takes quite a bit of skill and experience to perform one successfully.

The second question you need to ask is how many rhinoplasty surgeries have they done?  You want to make sure the surgeon you choose has a great deal of experiencing in performing a rhinoplasty, and does them on a fairly regular basis.

I’d also recommend asking to see before and after photos of previous patients to ensure that your aesthetic and the surgeon’s are a good match.  Digital imaging can also be an extremely helpful tool in helping you and your surgeon set a realistic goal in terms of your final results.

Ultimately you need to feel 100% comfortable with your choice of surgeon.  Be sure to give them a detailed medical history, including any issues such as snoring, trauma, allergies, use of nasal sprays, recreational drugs, etc.  Schedule a consult and allow them to perform a detailed internal and external exam of your nose and bring in any records of past trauma they can review.  This will help them to make an informed decision on just how they can help you achieve a desirable result.
