Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Before and After PhotosPosted on August 14, 2017
Nose is a centrally prominent part of the face, and not only affects the facial aesthetics but also facial balance and harmony. Therefore, rhinoplasty or nose cosmetic surgery can have a dramatic impact on the facial appearance. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss about all aspects of rhinoplasty to educate the patient.
Some surgeons may also present rhinoplasty before and after photographs during the first consultation. This can help a patient understand the potential effectiveness of rhinoplasty as a cosmetic facial procedure. ABPS board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
What are Rhinoplasty Before and After Photographs?
Before and after photographs in case of rhinoplasty refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same surgery with a successful outcome. The pictures include photos taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-operative bruising and swelling has been resolved and full new shape of the nose has firmed up.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that nose plastic surgery before and after photographs are obtained only with the proper consent of the patient and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as necessary. The surgeon’s only purpose in this exercise is to use these photos as a visual tool to explain to new patients about what rhinoplasty can or cannot do for them.
The face is the most visible part of the body, and patients are naturally concerned whenever they want to alter or improve any area of the face using cosmetic surgery. Some patients may only require minor improvements to the nose shape, while some others may need a major nose reshaping or resizing.
In some cases, rhinoplasty may be combined with other procedures such as chin augmentation or reduction to create better facial balance. In each case, the patient is better placed to make the right decisions when they have access to rhinoplasty before and after photos.
This will be mentioned below but it cannot be emphasized enough which is digital technology. Digital technology has changed the game across the spectrum touching just about every industry including this one. The plastic surgery industry has embraced this technology and the amazing pictures found online are a testament to this.
Now any patient can see what they are contemplating. These rhinoplasty pictures are amazing and enable someone to predict the future since they can apply what they see on the digital screen to their own situation. A patient can use their smart phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop to get this done. They can see these pictures anywhere there is Internet access. This makes this decision that much easier. They no longer have to rely so much on the spoken word, they can see for themselves!
Keeping Reasonable Expectations
Experienced surgeons know that patients with a positive mindset, clear cosmetic priorities and reasonable expectations will usually achieve the best satisfaction levels from a procedure such as rhinoplasty. Therefore, the surgeon may prefer to provide rhinoplasty before and after photos at the very first appointment. They will encourage the patient to review as many photos as required, and then make a judicious decision.
Patients with realistic expectations will often be able to appreciate the final results in a better way, and feel good about their new shape of the nose and face. This simple effort also mitigates the risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient at the last minute when it may be too late to reverse the procedure.
The surgeon has an option to provide rhinoplasty before and after photos on their practice website as well as disseminate them via photo sharing social media networks which Dr. David Kim does – the website has a plenitude of pictures on it. Stellar and judicious cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and other neighborhoods and communities in this part of the Southern California spread for rhinoplasty.
