Rhinoplasty update by Beverly Hills Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Francis R Palmer, III.

I have written several articles on Rhinoplasty (Rhinoplasty 101 series) that are available on my blog roll. If you are considering having a Rhinoplasty or a Revision Rhinoplasty…have a loved one or a friend who is considering a Rhinoplasty…please read/have them read this series of articles. I believe that this will better prepare them and you for your Rhinoplasty.

Before you embark on your quest for a more attractive nose…that is the purpose of a Rhinoplasty, please read my easy to follow 4 step guide on “How to choose your plastic surgeon” http://www.beverlyhills-plasticsurgery.com/choose.html This will give you a head start in search for your Rhinoplasty Surgeon. Understand that Rhinoplasty is the most difficult plastic surgery procedure, bar none, both technically and aesthetically. What does beauty aesthetics have to do with a Rhinoplasty, you ask? Read my article on my “Palmer Beauty Principles” that define facial beauty. http://www.beverlyhills-plasticsurgery.com/palmer-beauty-principles.html or visit my website and read more about my Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty at http://www.beverlyhills-plasticsurgery.com/Rhinoplasty.html

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Procedures performed today and one of our specialties in my Beverly Hills Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery practice. After more than 20 years of performing Rhinoplasty and difficult Revision Rhinoplasty….my role as a Rhinoplasty Surgeon is to make the nose look sleek and natural….not perfect. In my opinion, it is the pursuit of a perfect nose that often creates a disatrous outcome for patients (not mine..because we don’t go there ).

Finally, a brief word about post Rhinoplasty healing. I receive many questions from other Rhinoplasty Surgeon’s patients about their post Rhinoplasty healing….asking if this is normal or not. There are hundreds of ways to perform a Rhinoplasty…each with it’s pluses and minuses…with their varying amounts of swelling, bruising etc. You have to have faith in your Rhinoplasty surgeon before your surgery and have the patience to trust that surgeon during the swelling phase. If you had a Rhinoplasty because the price was cheap or you didn’t feel comfortable with some aspect of the Rhinoplasty/Rhinoplasty Surgeon before your Rhinoplasty…then you may have cause for concern if things look out-of-whack after the surgery. In that case, pay another Rhinoplasty Surgeon a consult fee for his/her opinion….but common sense says to wait at least a month or 2 after your Rhinoplasty and I always advise people to ask their Rhinoplasty Surgeon if what they are seeing is normal and expected before going to other surgeons.
