You’ve hated your nose for years and are finally ready to take that first step toward rhinoplasty. Scheduling your rhinoplasty consultation can feel very exciting, but many of our patients also feel a bit nervous. You may not know what to expect or how to prepare. This guide will help you make the most of your rhinoplasty consultation. We look forward to meeting with you soon!

Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty Consultation

Your rhinoplasty consultation is a unique opportunity to meet with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon, discussing the specifics of your situation. Dr. Epstein will carefully examine your nose, review your medical history, and discuss your goals for surgery. He can provide treatment recommendations and help you determine if you’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty. You’ll also learn more about your available options and the potential costs involved. Although it isn’t necessary, many patients find it helpful to spend a little time preparing for their consultation. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Write Down Questions– Do you have questions about rhinoplasty? Start a list and bring them with you to your consultation. Many patients forget their questions during the excitement of the consultation. Writing your questions down will help you remember.
  • Learn the Rhinoplasty Basics– Dr. Epstein is a highly-skilled rhinoplasty surgeon and will carefully explain your options to you so that you understand, even if you’re completely unfamiliar with rhinoplasty. However, it may be easier for you to talk with him and get answers to your questions if you’re familiar with the procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has an excellent guide to rhinoplasty that you may want to look over before your consultation.
  • Be Prepared to Discuss Your Medical History– During your consultation you’ll review your medical history with Dr. Epstein. Bring a list of any medications or supplements you may be taking and come prepared to discuss your medical history.
  • Take Notes– We’ll go over a lot of information during your consultation. Come ready to take notes so you remember everything we discuss.
