3 Tips for Selecting the Best Rhinoplasty Approach with Your Toronto Surgeon

When it comes to deciding which rhinoplasty approach is right for you, we encourage you to remember that since everyone’s anatomy is different, no two procedures will be the same. The best tips for selecting your nose job technique are listed below.

The Importance of Consultation

Choose the Right Rhinoplasty Surgeon

First and foremost, choose the right rhinoplasty surgeon for your procedure. This means a facial cosmetic surgeon who has not only the necessary credentials, but also the experience to back it up. Generally speaking, a facial plastic surgeon with specific expertise in the complex specialty of rhinoplasty is a good candidate to perform your procedure. Dr. Torgerson is certified with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Next, after you’ve identified the best Toronto rhinoplasty surgeon for you, an in-person consultation is crucial. Your consultation is the first opportunity to assess if you are comfortable with the surgeon you’ve chosen and for them to carefully examine and listen to you. A good facial plastic surgeon will always be sure to explain the various choices appropriate for you as well any potential risks and complications. During this time, your surgeon can set up realistic expectations and prepare you for the downtime you’ll need. Dr. Torgerson takes great pride in employing the most advanced techniques and technologies in the medical aesthetic industry so that his patients enjoy a comfortable and smooth recovery.

Planning for a Rhinoplasty

What End Result Are You Looking For?

The more you know about the days and weeks after rhinoplasty surgery, the better you can plan to have help around the house with child and pet care or with daily activities. Most patients report very little pain post-rhinoplasty, but you will not likely feel up to socializing for a couple of weeks while you heal.

Another important tip is to consider what end result you are looking for when planning for a rhinoplasty. This complex subspecialty of facial surgery is not one-size-fits-all. Also, the issue that many people will notice when they look in the mirror may not be the same as what is seen in your surgical assessment. The best Toronto rhinoplasty surgeon has expert eyes to target feature imbalances and offer precise solutions.

For instance, in some cases, tip refinement may be a subtle, surgical option to improve your nose. If breathing difficulties need correcting, then septorhinoplasty, which involves correcting the septum, will be appropriate for you. But if your concerns are aesthetic and involve changes to a hooked, drooping, or upturned tip, then tip refinement surgery can change the overall balance of facial features in a very satisfying way. For people who opt for a tip refinement instead of a rhinoplasty, the recovery time will be considerably less. Depending on the extent of the work performed, patients should be prepared to take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks off work.
