To put it simply, rhinoplasty or nose surgery can improve your facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. Our board-certified plastic surgeon at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacramento is known for providing natural-looking results by taking into account his patients’ facial features, nasal anatomies, gender, ethnicity, and even their body frame.
Take note that your consultation, particularly the quality of communication and rapport between you and our surgeon, plays a critical role in the success of your surgery. The idea is to have reasonable goals and expectations based on your anatomy and what the procedure can realistically accomplish.
List of Questions for the Doctor
The goal here is to get to know the doctor’s qualifications. A good rule of thumb is to focus on board certifications, years of experience, training and education, and the number of rhinoplasty procedures he performs every year. Of course, his bedside manner and his approach toward you as a patient also plays a critical role in your satisfaction following surgery. Take note that a good surgeon listens and respects the input of his patients. You should never feel rushed during a consultation, and Dr. Kaniff prides himself on having an excellent bedside manner.
List of Medications and Supplements
Write down all the medication and supplements, including natural and organic remedies, that you’re currently using. Or better yet, feel free to bring them to your appointment so that our doctor can take a closer look at their active ingredients.
List of Your Medical History
During a consultation in Sacramento, our surgeon should learn all about your medical history, including previous surgeries on the nose, medical conditions, and family history. It makes sense to write everything down beforehand so you won’t forget anything. Take note that rhinoplasty is a notably safe procedure when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon on a healthy patient with realistic goals and expectations.
Feel Free to Bring Your Wish Pics
Photos can help you further explain your cosmetic goals to our doctor. Nonetheless, bear in mind that a nose that looks good on someone may not appear in harmony with your face. Hence, your wish pics will only serve as a guide, not an exact blueprint of what you want to achieve.
