Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is one of the cosmetic procedures we offer at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacramento. This procedure is performed by Dr. Kaniff, a board-certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He has also been performing rhinoplasty in Sacramento for medical reasons such as a broken nose and deviated septum for many years. Rhinoplasty is a great procedure that enhances the appearance of the nose and brings balance to the face.
Am I a good candidate for rhinoplasty in Sacramento?
The following are some of the factors our doctor uses to determine whether you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty in Sacramento:
1. Medical considerations
It is important to ensure you are in good health when preparing for any surgical procedure. During your initial consultation, our doctor will conduct a physical examination, look at your medical history and perform a routine blood test to determine whether you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty in Sacramento. If you have a serious medical condition like diabetes, you will be given some medications to take before and after the surgery.
2. Psychological considerations
A good candidate for a nose job is anybody who is psychologically prepared, self-conscious, and has realistic expectations. You should avoid the surgery if you are being pressured by your family, friends, partner or colleagues. Individuals who are forced by others to make decisions concerning a cosmetic procedure or treatment are less likely to be happy with the final results. During your initial consultation, our doctor will also ask you many questions to determine whether you are psychologically prepared and self-conscious.
3. Age considerations
Age is another factor our doctor uses to decide whether or not you are the right candidate for rhinoplasty in Sacramento. A nose job is recommended from age 15 if it is done for cosmetic reasons. This is the best age because the nose has finished developing. Otherwise, rhinoplasty can be done at any age if it is done for medical reasons.
