5 Things to Consider When Selecting a Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon in Toronto

Undergoing a revisionary procedure

The decision to undergo a primary rhinoplasty procedure is often very exciting, as patients are anxious to achieve the nose of their dreams. Nevertheless, the choice to schedule a revision rhinoplasty is typically quite daunting, because patients worry that the procedure will result in further disappointment. Although this fear is understandable, it should not deter you from undergoing a revisionary procedure if you are not satisfied with the results of your primary surgery. But to ensure that your revision rhinoplasty is a success, it is imperative to consider following factors when selecting your revision rhinoplasty surgeon in Toronto.

Cosmetic Surgery Procedure

Find a plastic surgeon who is experienced in revision rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is one of the most complex and specialized cosmetic surgery procedures, since it requires working with tissues that have already been altered. As a result, it is extremely important to find a surgeon who has extensive experience performing this procedure. That ensures that your selected surgeon has the skill and expertise necessary to safely and effectively perform such a complicated procedure as well as deal with any complications, should they arise. Thus, during your consultation, it is advisable to inquire how frequently your prospective surgeon performs revision rhinoplasty and how many years of experience they have.

2. Examine the plastic surgeon’s previous work and ask for referrals

When researching prospective revision rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto, it is important to examine his or her body of work to ensure that you would be satisfied with the results. The surgeon’s before and after gallery will give you an idea of what kind of results you can expect, particularly if many of the patients in the “before” photos have undergone a revision to address concerns that are similar to your own. In addition, you may wish to ask your potential surgeon for referrals so that you can speak directly with former patients about their experience.

3. Ask for recommendations from people who you know you can trust

Although you can certainly conduct your own research online, it is also a good idea to ask for recommendations from people whom you know you can trust. For example, if a friend or family member has undergone a successful revision rhinoplasty, you may wish to consult their plastic surgeon. Alternatively, your family doctor or primary rhinoplasty surgeon may be able to give you a referral.

4. Pay close attention to how you feel during your consultation

Once you have narrowed down your list of prospective revision rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto, it is necessary to schedule a consultation with each surgeon. When meeting each plastic surgeon, pay close attention to how they make you feel. Your revision rhinoplasty surgeon should listen to your concerns, thoroughly answer your questions, and leave you feeling confident in their ability to achieve your goals. If at any point you feel rushed, uncomfortable, or uncertain about the surgeon’s ability, it is essential that you continue your search for the right surgeon rather than settling. This will ensure that your revision procedure is a success.

5. Consider getting a second opinion

In the event that your first consultation goes well and you feel comfortable with your prospective surgeon, it is still advisable to consult with other surgeons to get a second (or third) opinion. If each surgeon provides you with similar advice, select the surgeon whom you feel has the most experience and achieves the best results.
