Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery Dallas

The surgeon will have a detailed consultation with the patient prior to rhinoplasty surgery, which will help them prepare a customized surgical plan. The patient should feel free to ask questions and clear their concerns and doubts about the procedure during the consultation.
The surgeon’s first goal will be to use the consultation as an opportunity to educate the patient about all aspects of rhinoplasty and help them make an informed choice.
The surgeon will provide instructions about the pre-op preparation and post-op recovery, and will also discuss costs, financing, and other practical aspects of the procedure. Committed, judicious, and board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide rhinoplasty to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding communities in this part of the nation.

Patient’s Feedback

One of the first things that a surgeon will do during the consultation process is to seek patient’s feedback on why they want to choose rhinoplasty, and which aspects of their nose shape may be making them unhappy. The surgeon will also seek inputs about the patient’s current medical condition and previous health records. This feedback will be taken into account while creating a unique rhinoplasty plastic surgery plan to meet the specific needs of the patient.

Cosmetic Goals of the Patient

During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will encourage the patient to share their innate cosmetic needs and goals with regard to their nose and face. A clear understanding of the patient’s requirements will allow the surgeon to focus on targeted areas and create more satisfying outcomes in a less invasive way. Depending on the patient’s needs, a decision about closed or open rhinoplasty technique will be made by the surgeon.

Health Assessment

It is a good idea for a patient to arrange for their medical records from the physician and the hospital to be sent directly to the surgeon’s office before the scheduled consultation. The surgeon will carefully review the records, and during the consultation they will physically examine the patient’s current condition of the nose, skin, bone, and cartilage. They may also order x-rays or other tests in some cases. The patient should be prepared to disclose any underlying health concern or condition to the surgeon.

Current Medications

The patient should ideally prepare a list in advance, which includes the names of all the prescription, non-prescription and recreational drugs, if any, that the patient may be currently taking. The list should also include the names of herbal supplements and vitamins, if any. The patient can carry this list to the surgeon’s office for the rhinoplasty consultation.

Questions to Ask

The patient will have an opportunity to ask questions about the nose surgery procedure as well as the surgeon’s background during the consultation. A dedicated surgeon will provide detailed and accurate answers to increase the patient’s confidence and provide them clarity. Reliable and stellar cosmetic surgeons at ACPS receive patients from Houston, Texas, TX, and other cities and communities across the fantastic state of Texas for rhinopalsty.
