Individuals who are considering a nose job are likely some of the most dedicated patients when it comes to asking questions. This is understandable since the results will be on their face and will change the person’s whole appearance for better or worse. If you are in the market for a quality nose job, here are the top 5 rhinoplasty questions you should be asking your plastic surgeon.

1. How experienced are you with this procedure?

Rhinoplasty is a very specialized area of cosmetic surgery. Many doctors choose to focus primarily on a small number of procedures that they are especially gifted at. It’s a good idea to choose a plastic surgeon who has completed a number of nose jobs so that you know that they have the skill to provide the quality results you are looking for.

2. Am a good candidate for a nose job?

Not everybody is a good candidate for rhinoplasty. The makeup of the nose and the patient’s expectations may not coincide with the results that plastic surgery can offer. Your surgeon should be honest with you about if this is a good procedure for you.

3. What happens during the procedure?

It’s important to know what will happen to your body during any surgical procedure. In some cases, surgeons will show videos of previous surgeries, so you understand the process. This will help thoroughly explain the surgery so that you can better determine if this is something you want to do.

4. What are my realistic results?

Just because you want your nose to look like your favorite celebrity’s, does not mean that is a realistic expectation for you. It’s important to understand what you should expect based on your bone structure and facial features. Your doctor should be able to use imaging or offer photographs of patients with similar features.

5. What will the recovery process be like?

It’s critical that patients understand what they should expect during the recovery. This means that you should know the type of pain issues you may experience, when you should be healed, as well as any signs of complication. Many people plan to return to their job once they are healed, and it’s important to understand a realistic timeframe for recovery.
