Rhinoplasty, sometimes called a nose job, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the aesthetics and/or functioning of a person’s nose. It can be beneficial for those who have a deviated septum and experience snoring or other breathing troubles. While everyone is an individual and there are no cut-and-dry criteria for being a good candidate for rhinoplasty in Palm Beach Gardens, there are some traits that are shared among those who would make good candidates for this procedure.
Good Overall Health
Any surgery places demands on all of the body’s systems, so you will want to be in the best overall health possible. If you have any chronic conditions, such as well-managed diabetes or mild asthma, you won’t necessarily be disqualified, but you will need to speak to your primary care doctor about your desire for cosmetic surgery.
Good health includes not smoking. Smoking doesn’t just make you cough and yellow your teeth, but it also complicates the healing process. Any surgery carried out on a smoker carries a higher risk of complications, poor healing and scar tissue formation when compared to a non-smoker. If you smoke, you will want to quit well before you receive your rhinoplasty to give yourself the best outcome possible.
You Have Realistic Expectations
Having reasonable expectations for your outcome is important to your surgical candidacy. Good candidates in Palm Beach Gardens know what to expect regarding the procedure, the recovery, as well as the results. They understand that the rhinoplasty procedure will improve their appearance and/or enhance the functioning of their nose, but that they are still going to be the same person after the procedure. They will simply look like a better version of themselves.
