Commonly known as the “nose job”, Rhinoplasty is the surgery of the nose, done with the intention to mostly correct the shape of the nose. Dr. Dean Toriumi is a specialist in this form of surgery. He has a facial plastic surgery centre at Chicago, where he and his staff work relentlessly to provide near to natural looking results after a surgery. If a Rhinoplasty surgery is on your mind then you should definitely remember to check if whether or not your surgeon is a specialist in the field.
It is not just plastic surgery that a Rhinoplasty surgeon should specialize in, but also in the area of nose, ear and throat. Dr. Dean Toriumi is a very efficient surgeon in this practice and such is his capability that he even teaches physicians –in- training at the University of Illinois. Rhinoplasty is his forte, which is why he has also written several books on this revolutionary surgery. His experience through his researches combined with his knowledge of the subject makes him an adept in providing the most aesthetic experience for his patients.
The simplest explanation of this surgery is that the surgeon pulls back the skin of the nose, makes changes in the bones and cartilages that support the nose and redrape the skin on the nose. After that he places a splint on the outside to give the nose support in order to grow into its new shape. The changes in the shape and size of the nose are done solely based on the specifications o the patient. It is necessary to mention here that a “nose job” is not always done for cosmetic purposes, sometimes the surgery is carried out owing to practical problems as well.
It is unfortunate that not many people undergoing this surgery take it as seriously as they do any other kind of surgery; but Rhinoplasty or a surgery of the nose should not be underestimated in any way. It too has its own risks and drawbacks involved, if proper care is not taken in its execution. Therefore it becomes inevitable for the individual planning a Rhinoplasty to prepare him/herself prior to ‘going under the knife’.
To begin with, you should always talk about it to your closest people – family and friends, in order to gather as much information as you can about the surgery and the prospective good surgeons. After this carry out your own research relating to the professional history of the surgeons you have short listed; if possible you should even arrange for appointment s with these doctors so that you can discuss the matter with them and get a pulse of whether or not the doctor is suitable for your purpose.
Gathering information and knowledge about the process, of how it is carried out and what are its after effects is also important. You need to have a clear understanding of what you are about to go through so that you can avoid all mishaps that might be probable during and post the surgery. Prepping yourself physically as well as mentally is a very crucial thing before you go in for any kind of surgery.
