By Jerome Edelstein, MD

If you are thinking about rhinoplasty in Toronto, it helps to be informed about the procedure and whether or not the procedure is right for you. If the procedure is not a good fit for you, then you may not even want to undergo the surgery as you may not get the results that you want.

There are some things that you need to take into consideration before you start planning for your rhinoplasty procedure.

Why Should I Have a Nose Job Performed?

Many patients choose to have a nose job performed because they are unhappy with the way their nose looks. For instance, your nose may be misshapen, crooked, or of a size that does not fit with your face. If you are self-conscious about your nose, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Aside for wanting to change the size and or shape of your nose, improve your breathing, or to straighten or refine your nose,  you should understand the other factors that make a patient a good candidate for rhinoplasty surgery.

You should also be in good health and have completed your facial and nasal growth (generally the nose is fully developed by age 18).

Next, you will need to be in the right frame of mind and healthy to have the procedure performed. Rhinoplasty is an operation that requires careful consideration on the part of the patient.  The decision to undergo nose reshaping surgery should not be made in a hurry or for the wrong reasons. In this way, you can be better assured that the result you expect from your rhinoplasty is realistic and that you will have a high degree of satisfaction. Ensuring that your expectations are realistic and that your surgeon is confident in delivering them to you is the key to your satisfaction from rhinoplasty nose reshaping surgery.

In terms of your general health, you need to be a non-smoker, and not have any infections or other acute conditions that would cause affect healing. You will also be assessed by a qualified anaesthesiologist who will ensure your safety during the procedure.

How Will I Know My Results?

It is impossible to predict the exact results you will have from your surgery because the human body changes as it heals, but it is possible to provide you with an idea. One of the most best ways to get a realistic idea of what outcome you can expect from surgery is to see the before and after photographs of patients upon which your surgeon has performed rhinoplasty surgery.  The surgeon will show you patients that have consented to their photos being shown, so generally speaking they are happy patients.  Although so-called “computer imaging” programs are usually available in most Plastic Surgeons practices, you must bare in mind that these programs do not depict the outcome of your surgery, rather they depict what the surgeon imagines the outcome will be.  In the sense that this may help you ensure that you and your surgeon are on “the same page” , the plastic surgery rhinoplasty computer imaging programs are of some value.

If you are considering a nose job in Toronto, then you should speak with a qualified surgeon to learn more about the risks and benefits of the procedure.
