During your first consultation with your doctor, you’ll explain your reasons for having the surgery. Your doctor will examine your nose and facial structure and discuss the possibilities (what your nose could look like) and the procedure with you. Together, you’ll develop a plan for surgery and healing. This plan will determine the specific surgical techniques and anesthesia to be used. There are different factors that should be checked before cosmetic nose surgery.
All cosmetic surgery consultations begin with a thorough health history. This is especially true if general anesthesia is being used but also applies to local anesthesia.
General health problems are important to discuss so that your surgery is as safe as possible. Be sure to mention any chronic illness. Of particular concern are: high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, liver and kidney disease, stroke, cancer, bleeding problems, and wound healing problems.
PAST SURGICAL HISTORY
With rhinoplasty it is especially important to mention all previous nasal or sinus surgeries. Previous trauma to the nose is important. If you have traumatic changes to your nose it is helpful to bring in pictures of what you looked like before your injury.
Be sure to list all medications you take including aspirin and over-the-counter medications. These are important as they may increase bleeding and affect your surgery. It is extremely important to stop taking aspirin and aspirin containing products at least two weeks before surgery. Acetaminophen-codeine is a good alternative.
ALLERGIES TO MEDICATIONS
Information about medications that cause allergies is very important so that these medications can be avoided. Of particular importance is the reaction you had, especially if you had trouble breathing.
SMOKING, DRINKING, AND DRUG USE
These 3 will certainly affect your surgery. Smoking causes a profound decrease in wound healing and will lead to worse scarring and a less favorable result.
In kids, there are certain limitations that prevent them from plastic surgery (Rhinoplasty) before maturation is complete. Most girls at the age of 16 and boys at the age of 18 have reached full maturity and can undergo Rhinoplasty. Correction of nose problems in this age causes to rich a good self-confidence at this golden time of their life. And we shouldn’t forget that in this period of time teenagers not only knows their selves but also probably plan their future’s life.
Nowadays a significant of applicants of Rhinoplasty are over the 40, most of them say that they didn’t have satisfaction of their shape of nose and finally refer to Rhinoplasty. If the general situation and health of person is good it’s never will be late for Rhinoplasty to rich a more beautiful nose. Of course haven’t forgotten that, for a Rhinoplasty should refer to Rhinologist and before that talk.
Nasal shape is governed in large part by the size and shape of the underlying nasal skeleton. As a consequence, cosmetic rhinoplasty is largely directed at modifying the underlying skeletal contour in order to achieve a more desirable external appearance. However, because the skeletal framework is covered by skin and subcutaneous tissues such as muscle and fat, perhaps the single most important surgical characteristic of the nasal skin is its overall thickness. Nasal skin of intermediate thickness with a smooth and healthy complexion is by far the most amenable to cosmetic rhinoplasty, whereas skin types at the extremes of thickness – too thick or too thin – are the least favorable. Scarring tendencies and skin elasticity are two other important factors which can profoundly influence the surgical prognosis.
Rhinoplasty should be done while the person has the mental preparation along physical preparation.

The person in question need not be your partner, but should be a strong and capable person, and able to deal with stressful situations that you may find yourself in.
