Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose surgery or a nose job, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to enhance the shape and size of the nose in proportion to other facial features. At the time of pre-op consultation, the nose surgeon will educate the patient about various aspects of rhinoplasty and help them make an informed choice.
Some surgeons may also choose to present rhinoplasty before and after photographs at the first appointment. This will enable the patient to have a better understanding about the potential benefits of nose surgery.
What are Rhinoplasty Before and After Images?
Before and after images in case of rhinoplasty refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to an earlier patient who has undergone the same surgery with satisfactory results. The pictures include images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-operative swelling and bruising has been resolved and full results of nose surgery are visible.
The cosmetic surgery expert will take care to ensure that the pictures are taken with the express consent of the patient and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as per the established protocol. The only purpose of the provider in this endeavor is to use the pictures as a visual aid to explain to the new patients about the effectiveness of rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty can be performed using open or closed techniques. In some cases, the procedure may involve significant tissue modification, while in other cases, only subtle improvements to the nose tip or bridge may be required. Cartilage grafting, nose implants and other major techniques may be needed for a few patients.
For a new patient, it can be slightly overwhelming to make the right choices for all these aspects. This is where rhinoplasty before and after photos can help. Patients with access to these photos will have more clarity and will usually make better decisions in consultation with the surgeon.
Having Reasonable Expectations
Patients who have a clear idea of what the nose surgery procedure can or cannot do for them, will typically achieve the best satisfaction levels in the end. Therefore, a dedicated plastic surgeon may like to present rhinoplasty before and after photos at the very outset.
When the patient begins with reasonable expectations, they will be able to appreciate the final outcomes in a better way. It will also reduce the risk of any disappointment occurring at a later stage when it may be difficult to reverse the procedure. Fiala Aesthetics Plastic Surgery receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for rhinoplasty.
The surgeon has an option to upload rhinoplasty before and after photos on their practice website for free access to all but for this particular surgery these pictures are not on the website. This does not mean digital pictures of this surgery do not exist. Ask to see some during the consultation, for example. New patients can conveniently view the photos online and then decide if they want to proceed with a personal rhinoplasty consultation.
The main point here is digital technology. Digital technology has changed this industry for the better along with so many others. Now it may have been social media that took pictures and digital technology and made it mainstream but the plastic surgery community has benefitted and so have so many patients. Now a patient during a consultation can see these amazing pictures and know so much more on what to expect during this surgery.
A patient can perhaps have these pictures emailed to them so they can make this fundamental decision while sitting on the favorite chair at home. No one is better than this than Fiala Aesthetics Plastic Surgery.
