Before undergoing any facial cosmetic surgery, there are several important things that must be considered. A rhinoplasty is a life-changing and exciting option for anyone who has been dissatisfied with their nose, but careful deliberation prior to the operation is necessary.
The first question that you need to ask yourself is “Why do I want this facial plastic surgery?” Many people have agonized over the shape or size of their nose whenever they’ve looked in the mirror. Perhaps they were the brunt of cruel jokes growing up, and this has resulted in low self-esteem. Wanting to subtly change your nose so that it blends and harmonizes with your other facial features is a perfectly good reason to consider a rhinoplasty.
Because you want to have the same nose as someone else you admire or because your friend had a rhinoplasty are not valid reasons to undergo an operation. You should be seeking facial cosmetic surgery because you want to feel better about yourself, not because your partner or someone else is pressuring you to make a change in your appearance.
It is important to realize that a rhinoplasty produces a long lasting change. It is not something that can be reversed easily. Just as some people’s noses have caused them anxiety before undergoing a nose job, other people have experienced anxiety after surgery. Somehow they feel that because their appearance has been altered, their personality and identity has changed as well. Being mentally healthy and prepared for surgery and the changes it will accomplish is essential. Dr. Cory Torgerson’s private surgery centre in Yorkville, Toronto, was the first clinic in Canada to begin using the 3D Vectra imaging system. This state-of-the-art technology enables you to view what your new nose will look like after the surgery has been completed. Dr. Torgerson is considered one of Canada’s top rhinoplasty experts. He combines his extensive experience with his creative knowledge of beauty to craft a nose that you will be delighted with. Visualizing yourself with the nose you’ve always wanted will prepare you for the changes.
A rhinoplasty is a delicate operation because your nose consists of a slender cartilage bone and soft tissue. It requires more time to heal than any other facial cosmetic surgery. Anyone considering this surgery should understand that the results they desire will not be achieved overnight. They must be prepared for the healing process to take place. Most of the changes will take place in the first two weeks post-op, but the nose can take up to a year to heal. Taking enough time off work to undergo a rhinoplasty is an important consideration.
Finally, choosing an experienced, qualified surgeon that you feel comfortable with is essential. Dr. Cory Torgerson has his certification as a facial plastic surgeon as well as an ear, nose, and throat specialist. These combined endorsements enable him to carefully assess each person’s individual needs and create a nose that harmonizes with other facial features. By choosing him as your surgeon, you will be able to move forward in renewed self-confidence, assured that your persona remains the same.
