4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Looking into Rhinoplasty

You’ve been thinking about undergoing some type of cosmetic surgery for some time now. In particular, doing something about your nose is on your mind. While you still need to contact the team at Facialcosmeticsurgery.ca and arrange a consultation, there are a few things to think about first. Ask yourself these four questions and be honest with the answers. What you learn will make it easier to decide if cosmetic surgery is right for you.

Are There Medical as Well as Cosmetic Reasons to Have the Surgery?

While some of the attraction of undergoing the surgery has to do with appearance, are there other factors that apply? For example, you may suspect that the surgery could correct a minor but consistent issue with nasal congestion. You also wonder if the surgery would correct some physical issue that leads to snoring. If you think that the procedure could correct some medical problem, you want to be sure to point out those issues when you have the consultation with the surgeon.

What are Your Expectations?

In terms of the surgery’s outcome, what do you expect to happen? Will you be more pleased with the look of your face? Do you believe that the surgery will help you feel better about yourself in general? Could it be that a nose job would boost your confidence in the workplace or somehow contribute to an improvement in your social life? Define what you think the procedure will provide and if those expectations are reasonable.

Are You Doing This For Yourself or For Others?

What’s the primary reason for considering the rhinoplasty surgery? While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to do something that would make loved ones happy, that’s not reason enough to undergo a procedure. If no one else had the slightest interest in you having the surgery, would you still want to do it? Should you find that the answer is yes and you want the undergo the procedure mainly for yourself, then it’s worth talking with a plastic surgeon.

Are You Prepared for Your Recuperative Period?

The thing about cosmetic surgery is that it does require a recuperative period afterward. There will be bruising and swelling that must subside over time. Some of your activities will be restricted and there are steps you must take to avoid infections and other complications.

Now is the time to decide if you’re willing to follow the surgeon’s instructions for recovery to the letter. They may not always be pleasant or convenient, but they are essential if you are to be an active and responsible participant in the recovery process. If you are not willing to follow all of the instructions provided, it would be best to not have the procedure at all.

There are other questions that will likely come to mind as you mull over these basic four. Feel free to pursue answers to those other questions as well. Use the time to read up on nose jobs and what they could entail. By the time you finish with this review process, it will be much easier to decide if you should call and schedule a consultation or if it would be best to not seek out a surgeon right now.
