Can Thousand Oaks Nose Job Patients See Their New Nose Before Surgery?

Dr. Costanzo regularly provides patients with aesthetic improvements and a new nose profile that they love. Through your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals with surgery and learn what you can expect from your nose job.

However, patients sometimes have misconceptions about the planning process. We want you to understand how Dr. Costanzo designs your new nose shape so that you have confidence in the experience and in your outcome.

Why Your Nose Job Should Fit You (and Not Come from a Magazine)

Often, Thousand Oaks nose job patients look for examples of noses that they like and think would fit their face. They bring these examples to their initial consultation to give Dr. Costanzo an idea of the results they want to achieve.

Understanding your goals is very helpful to Dr. Costanzo, and it’s possible that he can incorporate aspects of your design into the final outcome. Still, not every nose fits every patient.

While a nose job is a common procedure, it is actually very complex. Skin, cartilage, and bone structures determine how much shaping Dr. Costanzo can do. As a result, it may not be possible—or even a good idea aesthetically—to give you a nose someone else has.

Why We Don’t Use Computer Imaging for Thousand Oaks Nose Job Patients

Dr. Costanzo offers his experience and knowledge to give you a good idea of what your outcome will look like. However, he chooses not to use computer imaging because this tool doesn’t accurately show you what you can expect:

  • Computer imaging cannot take into account, age, gender, genetics and skin texture all of which would be needed to produce an accurate image of the nose after surgery.
  • As you heal from a nose job, certain changes will take place that will ultimately affect the final shape. Imaging may not reflect these changes.
  • Setting false expectations is more likely to make you unhappy with the outcome than delaying your excitement over seeing your actual results.

Our practice believes you should choose a plastic surgeon with experience, who values transparency and professionalism. This allows the greatest chance for a successful outcome. If you would like to learn more about Dr. Costanzo’s success with nose jobs and how the surgery can help you, we invite you to get in touch.
