Top 3 Questions to Ask Before a Rhinoplasty

Being the central point of the face, the nose is an important but often overlooked focal point. This leading role in appearance makes the nose a prime target for improvements with cosmetic procedures. Dealing with asymmetry or a large nose hump can cause social anxiety, while other issues like previous injury or defects may cause difficulty breathing.
While considering a rhinoplasty there are several basic questions to keep in mind during the process which will lead to a better result and smoother process from start to finish.

Why are you seeking a rhinoplasty?
The top reasons that people seek out cosmetic rhinoplasty include correction of slight asymmetries, reducing a nasal hump along the bridge of the nose, and adjusting the tip of the nose.
While many people seek out a rhinoplasty for purely cosmetic purposes, a large number of people also need them to correct an injury or repair a defect.
Each of these situations are different and the anticipated outcomes and expectations should be thoroughly discussed with the surgeon.

What to discuss with your surgeon?
Most patients are bombarded with paperwork and forms at any doctor’s appointment, so getting lost on some of the details is normal. Asking your surgeon questions, even if they have already discussed something with you, is essential to understanding and making the most of your surgery. Most rhinoplasty procedures are typically minimally invasive with only small incisions needed, and modern advancements have progressed the procedure into a refined and delicate operation. Asking your surgeon exactly what your situation will entail is important to understand what your surgery and recovery will be like.

What to expect from and how long will recovery last?
Typical recovery lasts around 6 weeks to be fully healed but will vary by circumstance. Most rhinoplasty patients will wear a nose cast for about a week and can return to work shortly thereafter. Bruising and swelling will remain, with bruising disappearing before the swelling fully goes down. Because the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, you will most likely need someone to help you home from the procedure and help you with care for the first recovery day.

Overall, communication with our doctor is key. Reviewing all literature provided and discussing any issues or concerns with your doctor is essential to aid your recovery. Rhinoplasty is a high-reward procedure as your face is your gateway to the world.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
