Commonly Asked Rhinoplasty Questions

Are you interested in getting a nose job? If so, you should start looking into a local rhinoplasty surgeon that can do the job for you. Before you go under the knife and agree to surgery, you may have some questions for your potential surgeon. Here are some common questions other patients ask.

Are You Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?

This may be one of the most important questions you can ask rhinoplasty surgeons or any other surgeon. When you go in for plastic surgery, your doctor should always have a professional credential from the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Plastic surgery is major surgery and your health is at risk in the wrong hands. If your surgeon won’t show you their accreditation, that’s not someone you should trust to do surgery.

How Many Years Have You Practiced Plastic Surgery?

When you go in for rhinoplasty, you want to feel confident that your surgeon is an experienced professional who knows what they’re doing. In addition to asking how long they’ve practiced plastic surgery, you may want to ask them for some photos of their handiwork.

How Should I Prepare?

Like any other surgery, there are some minor things you should do to prepare. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, most surgeons advise patients to be around 10-15 pounds from their goal weight when getting a tummy tuck. When it comes to rhinoplasty surgery, our team of professionals recommends that you stop smoking and avoid taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs that can thin out your blood.

Do I Have to Stay Overnight?

As long as things go according to plan, there’s no reason for you to stay overnight in our facilities. After surgery, you can go home, but make sure someone is available to drive you home afterward. Our rhinoplasty surgeons also advise that you have someone spend the night with you during your first night after surgery.

If you’re ready to get a new nose, do your due diligence in finding the right surgeon for you. The first thing to do is have a list of questions to ask your surgeon before you agree to the procedure.
