Once a person has made the decision to undergo Asian rhinoplasty, they can prepare to attend the doctor-patient consultation. Some patients see a number of doctors before deciding who they would like to undergo surgery with. Typically, prospective patients determine if their doctor meets the following criteria:
- Specialist in facial plastic surgery
- Board certification(s)
- Positive medical ratings
- Prior patient satisfaction/good surgical results
- Good general reputation
- Extensive experience in ethnic rhinoplasty
The patient may begin by explaining what they wish to change about their nose. Dr. Nassif can then physically assess the exterior of the structure in an attempt to determine if the desired alterations are possible. If the patient is aware of anatomical limitations, this is the time they should discuss them with Dr. Nassif. One example of this would be prior Asian rhinoplasty performed by a different doctor.
The doctor can present patients with a number of possible options for their Asian rhinoplasty surgery. Though there are favored methods that can be utilized, they may vary depending on individual patient circumstances and preferences. While permanent surgical alteration is ideal for long-term results, those hesitant to go under the knife may opt for the temporary effects of cosmetic injections.
Once patients have qualified Dr. Nassif as their facial plastic surgeon through the above items, they may be prescribed certain medications or procedures such as blood work or facial scans to determine if they are healthy enough for surgery. The procedures can also influence Dr. Nassif’s methods used during a patient’s Asian rhinoplasty.
Dr. Nassif may provide a patient with written materials on the procedure, or ways to prepare for the procedure. The information is designed to help individuals prepare for the procedure by setting up a recovery area, planning time away from his or her daily activities, and arranging transportation following the surgery.
In certain cases, the doctor might request to see patients a second time prior to surgery. This may be necessary to determine if a person who experienced health issues is in better condition for surgery, or if there has been a very long time between the initial consultation and scheduled surgery. The patient will also meet Dr. Nassif for a post-surgical consultation to unveil their new nose and discuss the healing process. The doctor is available to hear any concerns or complications the patient has experienced, and to ensure the recovery goes smoothly.
