Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) July 26, 2013
According to data from The American Society of Plastic Surgery annual 2012 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report publilshed in May 2013, in 2012 rhinoplasty was the most popular procedure for people under 30. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that can greatly improve the overall proportion and appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty aims at improving the appearance of the nose and can significantly help to improve function as well. Many patients come to find that rhinoplasty, when performed properly, can lend itself to increased self-esteem and better breathing.
Rhinoplasty is particularly ideal for younger patients because it improves the look and function of the nose. Many times, those who undergo rhinoplasty are doing so to not only improve in the appearance of their nose but also to help with breathing. Being that rhinoplasty yields results that last a lifetime, patients turn to the procedure in their younger years, improving their confidence and self-esteem for the greater part of their life.
Rhinoplasty also can fix functional issues with the nose. Such functional problems like a deviated septum can cause breathing problems which in turn can lead to sleeping problems. People who are younger who tend to be more active may find that their deviated septum can cause huge limitations in their physical activity ability. Not to mention, a deviated septum can also cause problems with sleeping.
Rhinoplasty , as with any cosmetic procedure, has associated risks and complications that should be adequately prepared for. Dr. William G. Middleton, a cosmetic surgeon who practices in Toronto, has performed thousands of rhinoplasty procedures and finds that proper education and preparation can lead to much more successful results. Recently, Dr. Middleton discussed some of the key factors that go into preparing for a rhinoplasty.
Dr. Middleton strongly focuses on the consultation and feels that the consultation is one of the most crucial and important steps in the rhinoplasty experience. According to Dr. Middleton, the success of the procedure is dependent upon how open a patient is with their doctor and advocates for the importance of complete candidness in regards to health, surgical goals and lifestyle.
The consultation also serves as a vital piece of education for the patient. Dr. Middleton explains that during the consultation the doctor should examine the nose and discuss the various factors involved with nose surgery. This portion of the consultation serves as a means of education to help explain how the procedure will be performed, however it still remains a patients duty to fully understand what the rhinoplasty experience will entail.
In addition to the key factors of preparation outlined by Dr. Middleton, the Canadian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (CSAPS) also sets guidelines for patients considering rhinoplasty. They strongly advise that patients be of at least 16 years of age or older to ensure that the patient has stopped growing to ensure maximum results.
Furthermore, patients should ensure their doctors credentials. In Canada, there are no requirements to perform cosmetic surgery. So when choosing a cosmetic surgeon its vital that a patient understand their entire education background. Dr. Middleton, a board certified surgeon himself, has practiced in both Canada and the United States, where he underwent several years of specialized training.
Patients also need to understand the cost associated with rhinoplasty. There are several components that make up your final cost such as medical tests, surgeon fees, facility fees, anesthesia fees, surgical garment, and medications. Dr. Middleton, as with most cosmetic surgeons, provides his patients financing with affordable monthly payments.
