Rhinoplasty Results – How My Patients React After Their Rhinoplasty
One of the aspects I most enjoy about my work is the immediate and direct benefit it has on my clients’ quality of life. During follow-up visits, patients will often seem more themselves and less introverted than before surgery. It’s as if addressing what’s bothered them about their appearance finally allows their true personality to shine through.
My work with clients starts well before surgery in the pre-op consultation phase. It’s important that I understand each person’s aesthetic goals and expectations and take the time to communicate what’s possible technically.
Rhinoplasty is a very technique-oriented surgery. Each change to the underlying cartilage and bone structure of the nose affects everything else. For example, increasing the height to the tip of the nose will change the way the nostrils appear. Each step needs to be discussed and planned before surgery, which typically takes 2.5 to 3 hours.
By the time patients enter surgery, they have a true understanding of how they will look post-surgery. Often times when I meet with a client for their six-month follow-up, I ask if they’ve run into friends they haven’t seen for awhile. The comment people hear the most is that they look great, but they can’t pinpoint what’s changed. Their new nose has improved their appearance while maintaining their individuality and identity.
This natural and subtle improvement to their looks is an ideal goal for any plastic surgery and epitomizes my personalized–as opposed to mass production–approach. If you’re looking for a plastic surgeon in Manhattan who can offer a natural, individualized, compassionate approach to looking like yourself, only better, call my office to schedule a consultation.
