During a rhinoplasty consultation, your rhinoplasty surgeon will examine the inside and outside of your nose. He or she will be evaluating your breathing, cartilage, and your bones. More than likely, digital photographs will be taken and then viewed on a computer.
Before discussing various rhinoplasty procedures, your surgeon is going to ask you what it is you do and do not like about your nose. The images that are being viewed on the computer will be altered in an attempt to create a silhouette of your nose that you are pleased with. If you and your surgeon cannot come to an agreement on what your new nose should look like via computer simulation, then you will more than likely will not be pleased with the outcome. It is much better to decide to postpone the surgery than to wake up with results you do not like.
Once you and your rhinoplasty surgeon agree on what your new nose should look like, an operative plan will be devised. The computer will be calibrated in order to create actual measurements on the digital image. Most surgeons spend many hours preparing for rhinoplasty procedures. They use their photographs to plan for the procedure in a manner that is similar to how an architect would use blueprints to build a home. This digital imaging system makes it much simpler to plan a procedure. During the second consultation prior to surgery, you and your surgeon will review your plan.
