Do you have a board certification in plastic surgery?
Rhinoplasty is an intricate plastic surgery procedure that requires advanced surgical skills. Patients should preferably select a board certified plastic surgeon, which will serve as an automatic assurance that the surgeon would have undergone a certain minimum number of years of training exclusively in the area of plastic surgery. Board certified surgeons are a select group, who will invest in high quality standards and best practices in every surgical procedure.
How many years of training and experience do you have?
Rhinoplasty procedure should ideally be performed by a surgeon who has the necessary training in both general surgery and plastic surgery as well as experience in performing various types of cosmetic procedures. Such surgeons will be able to address the delicate nuances involved in rhinoplasty, and anticipate any potential risks or problems in advance so that counter-measures can be taken beforehand.
Do you perform open or closed rhinoplasty?
The open rhinoplasty technique is typically performed when a significant amount of tissue modification in the nasal area is involved. A skilled surgeon will ideally be equally at ease in performing both open and closed rhinoplasty procedures, according to the patient’s specific needs. They will be able to maintain discreet scarring and conservative results in both types of procedures.
Where would you perform the rhinoplasty procedure?
A surgeon will usually have an option to perform rhinoplasty surgery at a hospital, an accredited surgery center, or a private surgical suite. They will explain the advantages and limitations of each option to help the patient make the best choice. The surgeon will also discuss about the anesthesia options and make the appropriate recommendations according to the extent of surgery and other factors.
How much will it cost me to receive rhinoplasty at your practice?
In many cases, rhinoplasty is performed as an elective cosmetic surgery. Therefore, insurance coverage will not be possible. Patients should clearly ask about estimated costs of rhinoplasty surgery, including the costs of anesthesia, surgical facility, and pre- and post-surgical expenses.
What are the risks and complications involved in rhinoplasty?
Although rhinoplasty is a very safe surgery, the patient should still have clear information about its potential risks and complications in order to make a well-considered choice.
