Are You a Good Candidate for a Nose Job | Ariste Plastic Surgery

There are various personal reasons why people choose to undergo cosmetic surgery, such as rhinoplasty. Some people want to improve their breathing or change the shape of their noses. Whatever their motivation, patients need to have realistic goals and expectations before proceeding with rhinoplasty surgery. 

In this blog, Artiste Plastic Surgery shares the characteristics of a good candidate for a nose job surgery to help you evaluate if this procedure is right for you. 

1. You must be in good health condition

A good candidate for a nose job must be physically healthy for the procedure—those with no severe medical conditions or illnesses. Patients with underlying conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, lung diseases or others, must check with their doctor first.

2. You’re at the right age for the procedure

Your age is important in determining whether you’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Younger patients can get nose job surgery given that they reach their facial maturity, which typically happens at 16 years old. 

Some patients may also wonder if they’re too old for rhinoplasty. While many patients decide to undergo a nose job at an earlier age, rhinoplasty can benefit patients over 60 or 70. 

3. You should be a non-smoker

Cigarettes contain nicotine that can produce blood clots, affecting your overall recovery. If you’re a smoker, your surgeon will advise you to stop smoking for several weeks before and after the surgery. 

4. You understand the potential risks involved

Like in any surgery, rhinoplasty involves potential risks and complications. Your surgeon must discuss in detail what you will go through during and after the procedure, allowing you to have a clear understanding of the procedure and will help you decide if you will proceed. 

5. You must have a positive attitude and realistic expectations

Your emotional and mental preparedness are vital factors in any cosmetic surgery. Aside from having a good physical condition, patients must have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of their appearance. Patients must have realistic expectations of how a nose job surgery can improve their looks.
