The appearance of your nose can be improved,
but be realistic about the final result. Plastic
surgery can improve your appearance and improve your
self-esteem, but happiness is up to you. Emotional
stability is an important factor in being a good patient.
Consider your reasons for wanting plastic surgery.
Computers can help you project your future look
Modern devices and techniques are revolutionizing nasal
surgery and allowing the surgeon to predictably change
the nasal contour and even allow the patient an opportunity
to get a very good idea of how they might look without
even undergoing surgery.
After the patient's history and physical, Dr. Corbin can
take their photos with a digital camera. These photos are
then downloaded onto a computer and using a special program
developed for plastic surgeons the photos are digitally
enhanced. The computer simulation allows the patient and
surgeon to communicate about accomplishing a result that
will make the patient happy. Though the surgeon cannot
guarantee the final result, he and the patient can
certainly form a similar idea as to what the patient
wants to accomplish with nose surgery and unrealistic
excepectations can be ameliorated.
This new knowledge helps relieve patient's anxiety over
how they are going to look after having their nose operated on.
Communication is key! One of the most important details of nose
surgery is the patients and surgeons ability to communicate.
The computer is a useful tool to provide a visual image and the
individual's verbal skills provide a description of patient
expectations as well as the surgeon's operative plan.
The new look
Patients should give themselves some time to adjust to
their new and improved look. Sometimes following a
surgery a friend or family member may comment or not
notice a major change. Patients should not be influenced
by others opinions of their new look. If the patient is
happy with the way their nose looks this is the most important
Sometimes it is the highest form of a compliment if the nose
job is not obvious to others; this means that the nose suits
the patients face and looks natural.
The end result and amount of overall change depends on the
extent of the corrective work done to the structure of the
nose and the skin. The more disfigured the nose is to start
with the more dramatic the post op result will be.
If a patient has subtle corrections made like a bump removed
or a tip projected the post op result may be natural and less dramatic.
A beautiful result should create balance and harmony with the patient's facial features.
