What to Expect During Your Rhinoplasty ConsultationPosted on December 10, 2018
Nose surgery is a fairly customizable plastic surgery which should be preceded by a comprehensive consultation process to enable the surgeon to develop an individualized surgical plan.
A successful consultation will emerge from open communication and trust between the surgeon and the patient. The surgeon will evaluate the patient as a candidate for rhinoplasty during the consultation.
Successful board certified female plastic surgeon, the caring Dr. Kristi Hustak, provides rhinoplasty and various other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to the right candidates.
Astute Dr. Hustak will discuss various facets of the surgery during the pre-op consultation to allow the patient to make an enlightened decision. She provides nose surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations in this illustrious part of the US.
At the outset, the surgeon would want to understand the patient’s reasons for considering rhinoplasty as well as the areas of the nose that bothers them. The surgeon will also seek forthright information on the current medical status and previous health records of the patient.
On their part, the patient should share these details with the surgeon to enable them to create a suitable nose surgery plan.
Patient’s Cosmetic Goals
At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will try to understand the patient’s inherent goals and desires regarding their face and nose. Comprehension of these facets will allow them to create a surgical plan that can address the patient’s specific needs and offer satisfactory outcomes.
Current Medical Condition
Before the consultation, the patient should arrange for their medical records to be sent directly to the surgeon’s office from the physician or hospital.
In addition, in case they have any pre-existing medical condition such as heart disease, neurological issues, or an autoimmune disorder, or have any known allergies, they should reveal such information honestly to the surgeon.
The patient should enlist all the prescription and non-prescription drugs, herbal supplements, and vitamins that they currently use. In case the patient smokes, or drinks excessive amounts of alcohol, they should tell the surgeon about these behaviors frankly to ensure their own safety.
Pictures and Testimonials
During the pre-op consultation, many surgeons will encourage their patients to view nose cosmetic surgery before and after images. They want to ensure that the patient has complete clarity on the potential outcomes and develops reasonable expectations.
The patient may also request the surgeon to share testimonials of previous patients who may have received nose surgery and shared their experiences. Furthermore, the surgeon will also discuss other aspects such as costs, insurance and financing with the patient during the pre-op consultation.
Questions to Ask
The patient should openly ask any questions they may have during the pre-operative consultation process to make a well-informed choice. A committed surgeon will answer all questions in detail to ensure that the patient has complete clarity on the procedure before they make a decision.
