Paramus, NJ (Vocus/PRWEB) April 05, 2011
Dr. Paul M. Parker, a New Jersey plastic surgeon operating from the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, provides patients with an extensive online resource to help educate them about rhinoplasty and the results they could attain through this plastic surgery option. The site utilizes both pictures and text to paint a clear picture of the potential outcomes of the surgery.
When asked about the website, Dr. Parker said, “My goal any time I perform a procedure is to ensure that my patient thoroughly understands the risks, outcomes, and benefits of the surgery. I am always thrilled when a patient comes to me with a list of questions found during his or her initial research. This shows that they know what they want to attain. I want the page to begin to answer these questions and alleviate doubts about the procedure.”
The educational rhinoplasty information page takes nine different issues patients might have with their noses, discuses the procedure to fix each problem, and shows before and after pictures of real patients the New Jersey plastic surgeon has treated. This gives patients and excellent idea of what they can expect from the surgery, should they opt to have it. Conditions treated include problems with symmetry, noses that are too long, noses that are too
short, and noses that are too wide, among others. It provides an authoritative and educational overview of the surgery and potential outcomes.
According to Dr. Parker, the nose can be easily fixed because over 60 percent of it is made of cartilage, which can be moved. This allows some procedure to be done without changes to the bones. Tips, for example, can be repaired by moving the cartilage. Other problems, like bumps or crooked noses, may require the doctor to change the shape of the bone itself.
The web page also explains how extensive the surgery will be. Minor
adjustments are done in a closed procedure, which requires only small incisions inside the nostril. More in-depth procedures are performed through an open rhinoplasty, which requires a larger but well-hidden incision beneath the tip of the nose to open the nasal cavity.
“My desire is for the web page will help answer patient’s questions about rhinoplasty,” states Dr. Parker. “I know the tremendous difference my patients experience after having the procedure, both emotionally and in their level of self esteem, and I want others to be able to experience the same thing.”
