How to Best Plan For Your Nose Job Consultation
Added on 14th August 2020 in Blog
The success of your nose job surgery can be greatly determined by how well your nose job consultation goes. A consultation is an opportunity for both you and your surgeon to come together and run through the details of the surgery and answer any questions that need to be answered.
How successful the consultation goes will be heavily dependent on you as you need to be as honest about your answers as possible and indicate to your surgeon the expectations that you have. Planning ahead of your consultation can be useful in ensuring a smooth surgery. Here are some points to consider to best plan for your nose job consultation.
Know your medical history
You’d want the surgery to be as safe as possible. When a surgeon becomes familiar with your medical history, they’ll have a better indication of what risks are involved and ensure your safety throughout the surgery. Expect to answer some tough questions about your medical history during your nose surgery consultation as the answers you give will affect the results of your surgery. Here is an indication of some of the questions you may be asked:
– Currently and past medical conditions
– Any drug allergies that you have
– Medical treatments that you’ve had in the past
– Any dental work that you had recently
– If you’re taking any medications including herbal and vitamin supplements
– Your consumption of alcohol, tobacco or any other drugs
– If you’ve had any previous cosmetic surgeries, including medical and minor surgeries
– What possible reactions you may have with anesthesia
– Any injuries you may have sustained to the nose
– If you have any breathing problems
Although you may feel that these questions are rather personal, your surgeon is simply asking you to understand your medical history and get a better indication of your general health. This will also help them to better determine whether you’ll be able to handle the nose surgery procedure. Once your surgeon evaluates your medical conditions, from here they’ll provide you with your best options.
Have a good indication of what you want
You need to provide more information to your surgeon than simply saying that you don’t like your nose. Your plastic surgeon will want to know what you’re looking to change specifically and why you don’t like it. This is particularly important if you’re looking to have surgery for cosmetic reasons as your surgeon needs to know what results you’re looking for.
Communication is key when it comes to your nose surgery consultation. They’ll also have some comments to make to manage your expectations. Once they’ve heard what you’ve had to say, they’ll take you through what can and can’t be changed. This is because they’ll also be aware of your facial features and proportions.
Have your questions ready
It’s important to remember that your consultation is a great opportunity to have any concerns or questions answered that you might be unsure about. Your surgeon will also be expecting you to have some questions for them. You can ask them anything from their own experience of the procedure to how the surgery is performed. You may have specific questions about recovery time or their education. There are plenty of nose surgeons out there for you to choose from so have the questions written down beforehand so you can choose the best surgeon for you.
Once you feel comfortable that the surgeon and the surgery is right for you, start to have conversations about when you can fit in a date and how you can best prepare for the surgery. It’s also important to follow the instructions provided by your surgeon when it comes to how to minimise risk and avoid complications. Cooperating with your surgeon efficiently can provide a smooth experience for you and them.
