Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery ranks among the top five most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US today. During the initial consultation process, the nose surgeon will discuss all aspects of rhinoplasty to help the patient make an informed decision.
Many surgeons will prefer to show rhinoplasty before and after photographs during the first consultation. This will help the patient to understand the potential effectiveness of the procedure. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides this procedure to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations.
What are Rhinoplasty Before and After Photographs?
Before and after photographs in case of rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedure refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to an earlier patient who has received the same procedure with satisfactory results. The photographs include images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the swelling and bruising has been resolved and full effects of rhinoplasty are visible.
The surgeon will ensure that the pictures are obtained with the express consent of the patient and presented before new patients in a discreet way. The patient’s identity is usually kept confidential. The sole purpose of the surgeon behind this exercise is to apprise new patients about different aspects of rhinoplasty and explain what the procedure can or cannot do for them.
Industry after industry has been affected in a positive way because of digital technology. Digital technology has enable the medical community to become closer to their patients. Now plastic surgeons can have short and clear conversations with their patients since their patients have already seen fantastic and vivid pictures on the surgery they are considering to sign up for.
The ambiguity has been undermined. Patients are fully informed now and know exactly what they are signing up for. This mitigates the anxiety of the doctor and certainly the patient. From the comfort of their own home, patients can apply the pictures on the website to their own body.
Nose is a strategic part of the face, and any changes to the shape or size of the nose will have a significant impact on the facial balance and appearance. Therefore, it is natural for a new patient to be concerned about how rhinoplasty may alter their facial look and whether it will meet their personal cosmetic goals. Some patients may need only a limited improvement, while others may require a major rhinoplasty procedure.
Sometimes the surgeon may recommend rhinoplasty to be performed in combination with chin surgery or another invasive or non-invasive procedure. In every case, the patient will be in a better position to make the right decisions when they have access to rhinoplasty before and after photos. Experienced female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas, and nearby areas for rhinoplasty.
Best satisfaction levels in a procedure such as rhinoplasty are typically achieved by patients who have reasonable expectations and a clear understanding of the procedure. Therefore, experienced plastic surgeons prefer to present rhinoplasty before and after photos at the very first appointment.
This simple effort ensures complete transparency and minimizes the risk of any misunderstanding or disappointment occurring at a later stage for the patient. The final goal of a cosmetic procedure is to achieve self-assurance and happiness, and patients with reasonable expectations usually achieve this goal.
If the surgeon has their own practice website, they can upload rhinoplasty before and after photos on the site. New patients can easily review the photos online and then decide whether to visit the surgeon for a personal rhinoplasty consultation. Online photos may also be provided via social media channels such as Pinterest or Instagram.
