The pre-operative consultation before a rhinoplasty is of crucial importance because it is a time for the patient to talk to the doctor about their desires and express their concerns about the procedure. A good rhinoplasty surgeon is one who patiently listens to you during the pre-op consultation and devote a lot of time to make everything clear for you, including the procedure, potential risks, and how to take care of yourself after the surgery.

Additionally, the surgeon should be able to talk to you in a way that minimizes your stress before the surgery and show willingness to answer all your questions about everything related to the surgery.
So even if the surgeon is highly skilled, they won’t be able to satisfy you if they don’t understand your expectations. They need to clearly understand what you want in order to be able to deliver the desired results. Therefore, you should pay special attention to the ability of the doctor to communicate well with the patient and choose a rhinoplasty surgeon who is good at establishing strong doctor-patient relationship.
Of course, you may not be able to learn about a rhinoplasty surgeon’s pre-op consultation atmosphere until you meet them in person. But there are still a few ways to do so. One is what we talked about in the previous section, which is using feedback from people who had nose job before.
Another way is by watching the videos of the surgeon talking to their patients before or after surgery. Many cosmetic surgeons have YouTube or social media channels where they post their patient testimonial videos and videos of their consultation with their patients
