For Toronto Rhinoplasty Results You Love, It’s Best to Have Realistic Expectations
for Your Surgeon

You will increase your chances of having a positive rhinoplasty experience if you approach your surgery with realistic expectations.

As one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto, Dr. Cory Torgerson has had years of experience treating patients for a variety of medical and cosmetic concerns. From his experience, the most common characteristic among those who are unsatisfied with the results of their procedure is that they held unrealistic expectations to begin with.

How to Avoid Disappointment

Plastic Surgery

When it comes to plastic surgery, no two procedures are the same. Since everyone’s anatomy is different, the results of the same procedure may look completely different from one patient to the next.

To avoid regret or disappointment, it is important to understand that while a rhinoplasty will generally help improve your appearance or correct a medical issue that you are suffering from, it is unreasonable to expect flawless results. Patients who seek to correct some aspect of their nose are typically very pleased with their result because they were not expecting their entire appearance to change.

Furthermore, it is unrealistic to expect a rhinoplasty to make your life, marriage, or job better. As with any surgery, there is also always a small risk of complications that may arise or healing to not happen as expected. Therefore, it is best to be prepared for all possible outcomes to avoid disappointment.

The best rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto will provide a thorough understanding of what a rhinoplasty can and can’t do and how it can benefit the particular patient, given their unique anatomy and goals. At his clinic, Dr. Torgerson also offers the state-of-the-art Vectra 3D imaging system to his patients.

How Rhinoplasty Can Benefit You?

This advanced photo imaging system takes the guesswork out of the surgical outcome by allowing patients to get a preview of what their results will look like. This tool is invaluable when it comes to helping set realistic expectations before making a decision.

To ensure that you are satisfied with the results of your procedure, it’s important to hold realistic expectations for the recovery period. Although each patient heals differently, you can usually expect the face and particularly the area around the eyes and nose to be fairly swollen for the first few days following the procedure. It is also not uncommon to experience varying degrees of bruising around the nose. Some patients may experience nausea or stuffiness in the first few days too. Typically around a week after the procedure, most patients feel comfortable to return to work. However, it is still important to avoid strenuous activities such as contact sports and to avoid wearing glasses. Usually by the three-week mark, most of the swelling has subsided.
