Since its invention, virtual imaging has become enormously important in the world of plastic surgery.
Rhinoplasty options… This is especially so in rhinoplasty surgery since it is one of the most difficult facial plastic surgeries to perform.
Even before a prospective rhinoplasty patient visits a plastic surgeon for a consultation, he or she can explore a variety of rhinoplasty options compliments of online plastic surgery virtual imaging tools.
These online tools will not be as precise and accurate as those used in the surgeons office, but they will offer an idea of what different nose shapes and sizes will do to enhance the face.
During a consultation with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon you may learn that the ‘perfect nose’ you dream of having – the one you found online – is not possible. Keep in mind that virtual imaging tools are just that. They only show you possibilities and only those possibilities that are visible on the outside. Virtual imaging tools don’t consider the inside of your nose and your medical history. This is why working with an experienced Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon is critical.
Advanced medical virtual imaging tools give your surgeon the opportunity to review and study your nose in order to determine the best way to perform your surgery. Some cases are complex and will require special consideration. Virtual imaging gives the doctor a much clearer understanding of how to achieve your desired look considering all possibilities.
Whether you are considering rhinoplasty for medical purposes in order to breathe easier or for cosmetic purposes to enhance your face, it’s always important to work with the most experienced Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has achieved exceptional results.
