5 Signs That You Are Ready for a Rhinoplasty

If you have been considering a procedure that can improve the appearance of your nose, you probably are wondering exactly when you will know it is time to take the plunge and finally achieve the appearance of your dream. Here are the five key signs that you are ready to schedule a Rhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Ginsburg:

 

You dislike the appearance of your nose.

If you look in the mirror every day and wish that your nose looked differently, this is a sign that you are ready for a Rhinoplasty. A Rhinoplasty is best for patients who have either large or small cosmetic changes they would like to see made to their nose. Because a Rhinoplasty is a serious surgery, you should only consider Rhinoplasty if you truly wish you could change the appearance of your nose.

 

You have reasonable expectations.

Before you decide to undergo a Rhinoplasty procedure, you should have reasonable expectations of what to expect. Keep in mind that Rhinoplasty specifically targets your nose and cannot make changes to other parts of your face. During a Rhinoplasty, your procedure can make your nose smaller or bigger, smooth out bumps, fix a bulbous or pointy nose tip, and make your nose narrower or less flat. A Rhinoplasty can also improve breathing function by opening blocked nasal passages or increasing the size and function of your nostrils. Finally, a Rhinoplasty can improve the overall balance of your facial features by restoring symmetry to your facial appearance.

 

You understand the risks of surgery.

Because Rhinoplasty is a serious surgical procedure, there are similar risks to any surgery. You should accept the importance of finding a highly qualified, experienced surgeon like Dr. Ginsburg who can reduce the risk of anything going wrong with your procedure significantly. 

 

You are ready to take the full recovery time.

For a Rhinoplasty to truly give you the results you desire, you will have to follow Dr. Ginsburg’s post operation instructions carefully. This will likely mean taking it easy for a few weeks, carefully observing an icing regime, and changing certain aspects of your life to allow your nose to recover without any trauma that could undermine the progress made with surgery. 

 

You are ready to schedule a Rhinoplasty consultation.

Finally, the number one sign that you are ready for your Rhinoplasty is that you have scheduled a consultation with Dr. Ginsburg! During this consultation, Dr. Ginsburg will carefully listen to your goals and note the unique shape of your nose to tell you what kind of changes a Rhinoplasty can offer.
