Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty
In order to make sure his patients get the best results possible, Dr. Kevin Sadati feels it is essential to determine if a patient is a good candidate for the rhinoplasty procedure before booking the operating room. This is a very popular facial plastic surgery procedure as it improves the nose and ultimately creates a more harmonious face. However, patients who are not good candidates for this procedure will not benefit from it at all, and Dr. Sadati does not want anyone to be disappointed in the end.
Research is an extremely important part of the process, and as an expert facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Sadati requires his patients to do some research on their own ahead of time. Most patients in Orange County immediately think of a surgical nose job when they think of a rhinoplasty procedure, but the fact of the matter is that there are many other rhinoplasty procedure options available. For instance, some patients might rather have a non-surgical rhinoplasty performed at his Newport Beach facility while others might be interested in a reduction rhinoplasty. Our website has a wealth of information on all of the different procedures as well as the benefits and risks associated with those options. There are also before and after photographs, available of previous patients, to help future patients visualize what their own results might look like in the end.
After the personal research is complete, the next step is for a patient to set up a free consultation appointment with the surgeon. It is at this appointment that candidacy will be confirmed, and the patient can move forward. At the consultation, the patient can expect Dr. Sadati to do a complete physical exam as well as a mental exam. He will also assess several other factors during the consultation, such as the patient’s skin thickness, nose size and the amount of oil in his or her skin.
Once the physical assessment is complete, Dr. Sadati will then discuss the patient’s goals and desires. After an open and honest conversation, Dr. Sadati typically can determine if a patient is a good candidate for the procedure or not. Once candidacy is determined, photographs will be taken of the patient. These photographs are used to help the doctor create a custom surgical plan for the patient and also serve as a wonderful reference point for the patient after the surgery is complete.
