It is best to be prepared for your consultation to get the most out of it. Here are a few things to think about beforehand:
1. Be clear about what changes you are hoping for - what part of your nose you are unhappy with (tip, side profile, size, crookedness). Goal photos can be helpful as articulating your goals can be difficult as the terminology is often quite confusing.
2. Think about how surgery may impact your life and have a list of questions relating to recovery/ time off work.
3. Be confident in your surgeon. Ask to see a portfolio of before and after photos and make sure this is a routine part of their practice and therefore and area they have genuine expertise in.
4. Consider a follow-up consultation if you are keen to proceed with surgery. It is often helpful to go through the plan again and provides a chance to mop up any unanswered questions.
