Rhinoplasty has a high satisfaction rate. If you have spent years obsessing over your nose, good results from this operation can boost your self-confidence and balance your facial features. Rhinoplasty is within the top six most popular cosmetic surgery for women.
Is this life-changing decision worth it?
Rhinoplasty is considered by many plastic surgeons to be the most difficult type of cosmetic surgery and it takes considerable training and experience to get predictable results. Rhinoplasty results are permanent, though there are normal subtle changes over time due to the aging process.
When measuring outcomes only the patient’s voice matters. Objective outcomes, which are observer related either by the surgeon or by an independent emotionally neutral observer; are important but facial appearance is subjective and asking patients what they think about the appearance of their nose is of paramount importance.
We conducted a study to record the patient’s satisfaction with nose, nostrils, face, their psychological wellbeing, and social engagement. We looked at the results before surgery and after surgery with a mean of 6 months post operation. This study took five years to complete. The table below summarizes the results with the percentage of improvement post-op shown in the orange blocks.
These are true results in our patient population showing a significant improvement in all aspects.
