Members have an opportunity to engage with industry peers and keep themselves updated with the latest developments and innovations in the area of plastic surgery.
What type of rhinoplasty techniques do you perform?
The surgeon should ideally perform both open and closed rhinoplasty procedures, which will create more possibilities for the patient to choose the technique. If the surgeon also performs revision and reconstruction nose surgery procedures, it demonstrates their advanced skill in the field of rhinoplasty.
How many years of training and experience do you have?
Rhinoplasty may appear to be a relatively minor procedure on the surface, but it is an intricate surgery, requiring a careful balance between the nose and chin as well as maintenance of functional aspects while creating desirable aesthetic changes. The patient should determine whether the surgeon has the right qualifications and sufficient experience to perform cosmetic nose surgeries.
How much will it cost?
In most cases, rhinoplasty is performed as an elective surgery, which means the patient will have to pay for it out of pocket. Patients should feel free to ask questions related to cost, insurance and financing of rhinoplasty procedure. The cost estimate should include pre- and post-operative expenses in order to make a well-considered decision.
During the consultation, the patient should also ask questions about the estimated recovery, risks and complications, and request for access to rhinoplasty before and after images and testimonials of previous patients.
