Each facial feature contributes to your overall appearance. Without a doubt, the nose has a significant impact on how you look. A lot of people are unhappy with their noses, which is why the popularity of rhinoplasty in Miami is on the rise. Here at the plastic surgery practice of Dr. Serure, we would like our patients to undergo rhinoplasty at the right time. Here are 3 questions to ask yourself to determine that you are indeed ready for a nose job.
Am I healthy?
Every surgical procedure comes with risks. Thus you have to be medically fit before undergoing any kind of surgery. Upon your consultation with Dr. Serure, he will assess your health including your medical history, any medications you are taking, and any allergies you have. In case of any chronic conditions, adjustments may be made before you go under the knife.
Am I psychologically prepared?
It is not enough that you are physically ready. You also have to be psychologically fit. The decision to undergo rhinoplasty must come from you and not from your family or friends. Do not fall for peer pressure. Also, if you are dealing with any personal crisis, such as a death of a family member or a conflict in your relationship, it is important to resolve these issues or learn to cope with the loss first before even considering surgery.
There is a big chance you will not be happy with the results if you make impulsive decisions without thinking about it numerous times. You need to have a clear understanding of the entire procedure as well as the risks involved before deciding.
Do I have realistic expectations?
It is important for a patient to have realistic expectations about the procedure for it to be a success. You cannot ask for a “perfect” nose because that kind of nose does not exist. The goal is to have an attractive nose that complements your other facial features. More importantly, the new nose should appear natural so others would not think that you had surgery.
Almost everyone who wants rhinoplasty is a good candidate. Then again, the best way to know is to ask yourself these 3 questions and to consult a board certified plastic surgeon.
