Each individual’s facial characteristics are unique, creating a unique balance between the nose and other facial features. Therefore, a procedure such as rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery must be customized to match with the specific anatomical and cosmetic needs of a patient.
Customization means that a pre-op consultation will be vital to the procedure so that key details can be put together to create a custom surgical plan. The consultation will also give an opportunity to the surgeon to determine the patient’s candidacy, while the patient can interact and learn about the procedure as well as the surgeon’s background.

Dr. Bloom will use the consultation opportunity to create a solid foundation for a successful surgery. He provides rhinoplasty to patients in Chicago, IL, and other communities and cities in this part of northwest Illinois.
One of the first things that the surgeon would like to know during the consultation process is the reason why the patient wants to choose nose surgery, and which aspects of the nose and face may be bothering them. The surgeon will also require full disclosure about the patient’s current medical condition and past health records. These inputs will help the surgeon to create a customized rhinoplasty plastic surgery plan.
Patient’s Cosmetic Goals
The surgeon will encourage the patient during the consultation process to share their personal cosmetic goals and needs with respect to their nose and facial appearance. The surgeon can then incorporate this feedback into the nose surgery plan in order to produce more targeted cosmetic results in a less invasive manner.
Current Health Condition
The patient should ideally arrange for their past medical records to be sent to the surgeon’s office before the consultation. If the patient has an underlying health condition or a known allergy, they should fully share such information with the surgeon. These details will allow the surgeon to modify the procedure as necessary to mitigate the surgical risk.
The patient should prepare an exhaustive list of prescription and non-prescription drugs as well as herbal supplements and vitamins that they may be currently taking. If the patient has a habit of smoking or excessive drinking, they should be forthcoming about these matters during the consultation for the sake of their safety.
Questions to Ask
The consultation will provide an opportunity to the patient to ask questions and clear all their doubts and concerns about the rhinoplasty procedure as well as the surgeon’s practice. They can make a well-considered decision after receiving the surgeon’s replies to all questions.
