Rhinoplasty – What’s The Best Time To Meet With a Surgeon?

If you’re considering a Toronto rhinoplasty, the best choice of surgeon and ideal timing are often key concerns.

Dr. Cory Torgerson always advises patients to consider not only when a great time for facial cosmetic surgery would be, but also when the timing is less than ideal.

Toronto Rhinoplasty Consultations

Transformative Cosmetic Surgery

A rhinoplasty is a major, transformative cosmetic surgery. For that reason, it’s usually not a good idea to plan the procedure during a period of emotional stress or other big life changes. Having a surgery when you’re in a calm and balanced state of mind is a good way to ensure that you have a smooth recovery and optimal results. Though patients often report that rhinoplasty recovery is not painful, a major change in your daily routine, discomfort, medication, and inflammation can cause temporary physical and mental stress. It’s also important to choose this procedure for yourself without any external influences so that you avoid regret or disappointment afterwards.

When it comes to meeting with a surgeon, the best Toronto rhinoplasty consultations occur in person in the earlier phases of planning. Many good surgeons are quite busy, particularly during the summer months, and after a consultation, it may still take weeks or months for the actual procedure to be scheduled. This is important prep time for you, and the information that you gather at the consult can help you organize your time for the weeks and months ahead. Furthermore, if you’re considering multiple surgeons, it’s a good idea to schedule the initial consultations many months ahead to increase your chances of booking the surgery date that best fits your schedule.

Key Elements of a Well-Planned Rhinoplasty


Many potential rhinoplasty patients wonder if there’s an optimal time of year to have their surgery. Dr. Torgerson has years of experience treating patients from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds for a diverse range of concerns. He performs rhinoplasty surgery all throughout the year in any season. What is more important to consider is when you can take time away from your busy work and life schedule. Because of the requirement for 2 or more weeks away from work, many people tend to schedule their procedure during the summer months.

One factor to note is that if you suffer from allergies or seasonal changes, this could impact your recovery after a rhinoplasty. Although it’s usually not a big concern, it may be a good idea to wait for another time of the year if you’re particularly sensitive to spring or summer pollen. Researching the best Toronto rhinoplasty surgeon options, being fully informed, and most importantly, feeling comfortable with the expert you’ve chosen are key elements of a well-planned rhinoplasty.
