Questions You Should Ask Your Plastic Surgeon before Rhinoplasty The questions you should ask your plastic surgeon before rhinoplasty should be about the safety of the procedure, its efficiency, and most importantly, its appropriateness for your body and whether it would offer results in line with your expectations. These questions could only be answered following your initial consultation with the plastic surgeon. Are You Right for the Rhinoplasty Procedure? One of the foremost questions that need to be answered is whether you are the right candidate for rhinoplasty. If you have a bulbous nasal tip, a wide nasal profile, a bent nasal side profile as a result of a bump on the nasal bridge, a drooping nasal tip, a crooked or off-center nose due to accident or some surgery performed earlier, narrow nostrils causing breathing problems or just a nose large enough for the face, rhinoplasty surgery is right for you provided you have healthy facial tissues, are in general good health and have reasonable expectations of rhinoplasty. Your plastic surgeon will examine your nose and seek to understand your expectations. He will explain the procedure to you and also perhaps show you a computer simulated image of how your nose would look like following the cosmetic nose surgery. The rhinoplasty surgeon will ensure that you understand all aspects about the surgery, but ultimately you’ll have to ask yourself whether you really need to go ahead with it.

Qualifications and Experience of the Plastic Surgeon One of the other important questions you need to ask your plastic surgeon is whether he/she is experienced enough in the particular procedure which in this case is rhinoplasty surgery. Does the surgeon have certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery or any other valid accreditation? Accreditation reinforces the skills of the surgeon, which is important when you trust him with your life. You should feel free to ask him about his qualifications and experience. A reliable rhinoplasty surgeon would be more than willing to explain his credentials and would also mention them in his website. AAAASF Accreditation of the Cosmetic Surgery Facility The other thing you need to ask before rhinoplasty is whether his plastic surgery facility has accreditation from the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF). Accreditation of the facility is recognition of its world class facilities and techniques, which means you, can expect greater safety, privacy and efficiency. These aspects too would be explained by the reliable plastic surgeon or mentioned in his/her website. Finally you need to enquire about the expenses in detail and also whether there would be insurance available for the rhinoplasty treatment. These are some of the questions you should ask your plastic surgeon before rhinoplasty. Contact Details Faces and Figures 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Wilmington Delaware 19806 Ph: (302) 656-0214
