Plastic Surgeons at Toronto-based Edelstein Cosmetic have outlined the traits of a pre-surgical consultation process that achieves a higher rate of satisfaction for patients undergoing rhinoplasty.
"The initial consultation with a patient is as important as the actual surgery itself because it’s what allows plastic surgeons to determine the most suitable course of treatment. We have found that there are specific things that are absolutely necessary to do for a proper consultation,” states Dr. Jerome Edelstein, the primary physician at Edelstein Cosmetic. “Rhinoplasty surgery is a total process. The work done before surgery is often times more important than the surgery itself. Understanding patient needs and desires is the pivotal first step in delivering a satisfactory result. Rhinoplasty is known to have a revision rate of upwards of 20%. Our goal is to ensure a great outcome the first time around and reduce that rate to as close to zero as possible.”

While it is the second most popular procedure performed in North America, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, rhinoplasty also has a higher rate of patients seeking revision compared to other cosmetic procedures (5% to 10%). This may be due to the fact that the nose is in the centre of the face and desirable results are often based on a change of mere milimetres.
