I am considering a consultation for a rhinoplasty, but there isn’t a wealth of plastic surgeons in my area and I’d rather not buy a plane ticket for something I may or may not wind up doing. Is there any way I can do the consultation via phone or internet?
Time out! This is your face you are talking about. If you do go through with a rhinoplasty the result is going to be out there for everyone to see all the time. Don’t short change yourself on a face to face consultation. I see many patients like yourself and we usually handle it in one of two ways. They either come for a comprehensive consultation ( a morning and afternoon review each about 45 minutes to an hour) and then go ahead with the surgery during that trip or return in the future when they are ready to go. Even if you decide not to do anything after a consultation the price of the trip is well worth the piece of mind of not changing your appearance to something you don’t want.
