Good candidates for rhinoplasty
Many patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose are good candidates for rhinoplasty surgery. In general, you need to be in good general health, both physically and mentally, prior to undergoing the procedure so that you have the best chance for an optimal recovery. Smoking will increase the risk of complications and slow down recovery after your procedure. Rhinoplasty surgery should only be done once a person’s facial growth is complete, which means that it is not a good option for younger patients.
One of the most important considerations in determining whether a rhinoplasty is right for you is whether you have realistic expectations about the procedure and the results it can achieve. Dr. Kwan performs a thorough evaluation of your overall health, nasal structure, and other facial features to help determine the best way to achieve your desired results. This may include taking photographs and measurements of your face, asking you questions about your medical history, and learning about lifestyle factors that may impact the success of the surgery. He also takes ample time to learn about your goals for the procedure and what results you are seeking. In some cases, Dr. Kwan may suggest a slightly different direction for the procedure to help you achieve the most balanced, aesthetically pleasing results that work well with your underlying bone structure and other facial features.
The consultation is a great opportunity for you to ask any questions that you have, and we are just a phone call away if you remember a question after your appointment. Anxiety or stress about the procedure is normal, and one of the best ways to combat it is to be well-informed, so you know what to expect. To this end, Dr. Kwan will discuss what you should expect before, during, and after the surgery, what specific techniques he will use, and what costs will be involved. Even though Dr. Kwan has an upscale location, his prices are competitive, particularly when you consider his level of expertise and skill in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
