Highly regarded facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, of the Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction in Los Angeles, explains how to prepare for a nose job in a new article.
In an article recently published on RhinoplastyNet.com titled “How to Prepare for a Nose Job,” Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, the Director of the Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction in Los Angeles, explains the most important factors to consider when preparing for a rhinoplasty procedure. The first tip on his list involves choosing the right surgeon.
“Choosing a surgeon for a nose job is perhaps the most important step in ensuring the best possible outcome. It’s important for people considering the procedure to do research on their prospective physicians, meet with them for consultations, and ask to see before-and-after photos of past work,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh also advises people to be open with their surgeons once they have decided to undergo the procedure. Communication between patient and doctor is key to ensuring the doctor knows the patient’s desired outcome. The surgeon will likely use an imaging program to show the patient the way his or her nose could look, and it’s important the patient feels comfortable enough to be honest with the doctor.
“Patients who communicate their expectations with their doctors are more likely to be happy with the results. And it’s also important that doctors are open with their patients about the realistic results they feel they can achieve,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is a rhinoplasty surgeon in Los Angeles who is known for his natural-looking results and minimally invasive surgical techniques. He believes a natural result that brings balance to the face is what most patients are seeking.
“Patients desire changes that range from subtle tip refinement to addressing a large bump on the bridge. The nose is the most prominent feature on the face, so no matter the change being made, it is important that it looks natural. We also always want to preserve or enhance breathing function at the same time,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery, recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” Dr. Azizzadeh is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, a fact which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
