How can you decide if nose surgery is right for you?

Before and After Rhinoplasty

Many nose surgery patients want a change but are concerned that their new nose may not suit their face. At The Cosmetic & Restorative Surgery Clinic in Double Bay, Dr. Hodgkinson and his team of staff specialiasts use various tools to help a patient communicate what they are expecting in terms of a result or look and for Dr. Hodgkinson to explain to the prospective patients what is actually possible to achieve in their specific case.

One of the most powerful tools employed is Computer Imaging. This allows a patient to be directly involved in assessing their face and the balance of their features. The clinic also has books of before and after results of Dr. Hodgkinson’s work. Many patients like to make a ‘scrap-book’ of noses that they do and do not like to communicate with Dr. Hodgkinson what types of noses they believe would be attractive for them and what types of noses they do not desire.

After deciding on the look that is both appropriate and achieveable and after determining that if you are healthy, if you are able to make the commitment to a few weeks off of work or study, then nose surgery might indeed be right for you.
