Rhinoplasty, or surgery to change the shape of the nose, can alter the nose in a variety of ways to achieve a patient’s aesthetic and functional goal. Because noses vary from face to face, depending on your facial proportions, ethnic background, skin type and other variables, it is important that you have a thorough and realistic expectation of your goals.
At the time of your consultation, you will meet with your chosen board-certified surgeon who will talk with you about your goals and the best way to achieve your desired outcomes. Our goal is to make sure every one of your questions is answered and you feel comfortable with your knowledge of the procedure. In your initial consultation, your surgeon ill evaluate your health, discuss your medical history and carefully examine and assess your nose features. You will see “before and after” photographs of prior patients with similar noses. The doctor will then review your goals and make recommendations based on his evaluation. The techniques used in rhinoplasty will be described in detail, and informational materials will be provided. Photos will be taken of your nose to document your results.
Be sure to inquire if there are additional facial procedures that would enhance the effect of your nose surgery. This procedure is often performed in combination with chin or cheek implants, balancing the proportions of a patient’s facial features.
We have three Patient Care Coordinators who work closely with you through your entire time in our practice, serving as your resource for any questions or concerns you have along the way. After your time talking to the surgeon, your Patient Coordinator will provide you with a detailed, written estimate of surgical fees for your procedure when you have your initial consultation at Cool Springs Plastic Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee. She will assist you in selecting a date for your surgery, convenient for your schedule. Your Patient Care Coordinator will also inform you about all payment options available in our office. Information regarding “Payment Options” are detailed under the “About” tab at the top of our web page.
