”How do I know I’ll get a natural looking nose job?”
It’s possibly the most frequently raised concern we hear from patients who approach us about cosmetic rhinoplasty—and understandably so.
The nose is the most prominent facial feature, and the idea of undergoing nose surgery only to find yourself with a nose that looks unnatural or doesn’t complement the rest of your facial features can be very unnerving. However, rest assured that there are things you can do to ensure you get the most natural looking nose job that complements your face perfectly.
1. Choose a Great Surgeon
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a complicated procedure which requires a strong combination of education, experience, artistry and skill to be able to achieve a natural looking nose.
As a starter, you should only consider surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to perform your procedure. Choosing a board-certified surgeon provides a level of assurance that your doctor possesses the appropriate training and education that’s required to perform the procedure safety and to the optimal standard.
In addition to this, you can also ensure the best possible result by choosing a surgeon who:
- is highly experienced
- can provide real-life examples of the results they’ve achieved for other patients, and
- takes the time to properly address all your questions and concerns.
2. Sample the Results Before You Commit
Many patients find it difficult to visualize what their new nose will look like, however, some innovative surgical practices (like Sedgh Plastic Surgery) now allow their patients to sample their new nose using cutting-edge 3D simulation technology.
This is an excellent way to see the type of results that can be achieved before you commit to having the procedure, while also ensuring you and your surgeon are on the same page in terms of the procedure and expected outcomes.
Depending on the type of rhinoplasty required, it may also be worth considering having a liquid rhinoplasty prior to undergoing a surgical procedure.
A liquid rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers to add volume to targeted areas of the nose to mimic the type of results that can be achieved with surgery, however the results are only temporary. While a liquid rhinoplasty can’t be used to make your nose smaller, for patients who are looking to alter the shape of their nose rather than its size, it can be a good way to check if you would be happy with your new nose before making a permanent commitment.
3. Take Care During Your Recovery
It’s also important to take good care of yourself during the recovery period following rhinoplasty to ensure the best possible result.
Ensuring you follow the post-surgical care advice provided by your surgeon such as resting as much as possible, sleeping in a slightly elevated position, using an intranasal spray to stave off dryness, drinking plenty of water and following a healthy diet will help to support a speedy recovery and prevent any damage to your new nose.
