A good candidate for rhinoplasty (nose job) is a person who’s in generally good shape and is both realistic and optimistic about the results. To determine if you’re a good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure, consider the following factors:
Like any other type of surgical procedure, it’s very important to make sure you’re medically and physically fit for surgery. During your consultation, our medical team will ask you about your overall health and medical history, any known allergies, and the medications that you’re currently taking. Patients who choose to get rhinoplasty are typically healthy without the need to take any pre-operative tests in order to proceed. If you suffer from any serious chronic conditions like diabetes, a few adjustments may be in order regarding your medications before and following the procedure.
In addition to being physically fit for surgery, it’s equally as important that you’re mentally prepared as well. Therefore, your choice to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure needs to be carefully considered. Here are a few tips that will help guide you in making your decision from a psychological viewpoint.
- Rhinoplasty is a good option if your overall goal is to reach an improvement that will ultimately enhance your general sense of well-being as well as your self-confidence. You should not, however, elect to get the surgery if you’re being pressured by your partner, friends, family members, or colleagues.
- Individuals who impulsively make decisions concerning an aesthetic procedure are much less likely to be happy with the results. Take as much time as you need to think about your decision and thoroughly research the subject. A complete understanding of how the procedure works is more likely to result in a good outcome.
- Keeping a positive mindset about the entire process is crucial. Even though it’s normal to have apprehension about the surgery, overall you should feel reasonably comfortable with both your surgeon and your decision. If you don’t, talk to your doctor about your concerns and get more expert medical opinions if necessary.
Rhinoplasty can be done on people asyoung as 15, which is usually when the nose is finished developing. Although progressed age is usually not a hindrance to getting the procedure, the general health of the individual is a very important factor to consider.
