Four Questions Regarding Rhinoplasty To Ask Your ENT Surgeon

August 16, 2012 - admin

Comments are off for this post.

According to the British Association of Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty is the fifth most popular cosmetic surgery in the United Kingdom. It can be used to change the appearance of an individual’s nose, by making it larger, smaller, longer, shorter, or more pointed. It can also be used to remove skin irregularities like scars and moles, as well as correct breathing problems. Rhinoplasty should be performed either by a cosmetic surgeon, or an appropriately trained ENT surgeon.

If you are thinking of undergoing rhinoplasty to enhance the appearance of your nose, you should first consult with an experienced cosmetic or ENT surgeon, who can offer you the best possible advice, based on a thorough medical assessment. Below, are four key questions that you should consider asking your chosen cosmetic or ENT surgeon, before deciding to proceed further with cosmetic nose surgery:

1. What will my nose look like post-surgery?

Most nose surgeons will use 3D imaging technology to determine an achievable surgical goal, and give you an idea of the expected outcome of your nose surgery. They will also inform you about the risks associated with the procedure, and how long it will take to view the final results.

2. How long have you been performing nose surgery for?

One good indicator of a nose surgeon’s experience is the number of rhinoplasty procedures, which he or she has performed. You can also ask the ENT surgeon about their success rate, their professional qualifications, as well as the number of years for which they have been performing rhinoplasty.

3. Who will assist during the nose surgery?

During most surgical procedures, including rhinoplasty, medical assistance is provided by a team of trained professionals that include anaesthetists and nurses. To assess the general quality of the team hired by the clinic, ask your chosen ENT surgeon about the qualifications of the anaesthetists and nurses who will be involved with your surgery.

4. What does the quoted price include and exclude?

To prevent any surprises, it is important to know exactly what you are paying for, and what would cost extra. The cost of rhinoplasty usually depends on factors like the type of rhinoplasty required, the qualifications and experience of the appointed nose surgeon, and the location of the clinic.
