Making choices is usually difficult, especially, when the number of options are a lot.
Some choices are not very important and do not require special research or too much thinking. For example, if you do not like a shirt you bought, you would not wear it again. Or if you go to a restaurant and you don't like their food, you wouldn’t go there again. On the other hand, if you want to buy a million dollar car, it would be more reasonable for you to do some researches and get some information from the internet and your friends before buying it.
Some choices, however, are critical. Making such choices as the field of your study in college or choosing a life partner are so important that Internet research is just not enough and you need to get more information from different sources.
Choosing the right nose surgeon is VERY IMPORTANT and is considered as a critical choice. Because if the result of your surgery does not turn out very well, you cannot do anything about it for a year.
If you do a secondary rhinoplasty and do not like your result again, it would be very unlikely to get a successful surgery for the third and fourth time. Therefore, you need to be careful about making this choice.
The following tips will help you find a right nose surgeon:
1- Meet real patients: Come to the doctor’s office and see his previous patients. You can see the real examples of his surgeries at his office. Patients are supposed to visit their doctor the day, the week, the month, and the year after surgery.
Find previous patients and ask them about the doctor.
2- Study and research: Like any other important choices in life, do a little research on Google and get some information. You can even find the real video of rhinoplasty surgery by google and watch them online.
Do your homework and visit a lot of websites. Look for websites that show rich gallery of before and after photos and the rhinoplastic surgeons with high experience, high degree of specialization and FOCUS on rhinoplasty.
3- Increase your knowledge: Read medical articles and improve your knowledge about nose surgery. Visit medical websites. Go to "about doctor" page and get information about your doctor’s education, experience, specialty, educational degrees. Visit the gallery of "before and after" results on his website and see if you like his style.
4- Set your budget:Cost of surgery in Iran vary from 1 to 10 thousand dollars. Please bear in mind that, there is no standard pricing for cosmetic surgeries. Higher price does not necessarily mean better quality of work. Proportion of the prices with the type of surgery is all that matters.
5- Finally, trust a Doctor and finalize your decision.
Ok. I made my decision. I would like to have Dr. HOSNANI operate my nose. Now what?
