Dean Toriumi is an expert cosmetic surgeon and you only need to check out the Dean Toriumi reviews to understand that. Dean specializes in rhinoplasty and I have been speaking to him recently about the good/bad experiences which his patients have had with him. Unsurprisingly those who claim to have had poor experiences are those who didn’t pay enough attention with him during their pre-op, and who walked away with a disappointing result. These kinds of issues aren’t exclusive to Dean’s clinic here in Chicago, Illinois many of his colleagues across the nation have also had the same issues with their patients, resulting in a number of issues. If you are considering rhinoplasty then it is vital that you understand the limitations of this kind of surgery and that you are fully aware of the results which you can expect.
Many patients come into the clinic expecting to be able to post a before/after photo other social media feed which sees them transform into Kim Kardashian thanks to a re-modeling of the nose. his is of course ridiculous to think as we all have different styles of nose and surgeons can only operate with what they have available to them. Surgeons will always be realistic when speaking with their patients and whilst they will always try and match their expectations, it is sometimes just impossible to achieve.
When you go in to have your consultations with your surgeon it is vital that you are transparent and communicate clearly what your own expectations are. Beyond that you need to listen to what the surgeon says about what they are actually able to do given the muscle, cartilage and tissue which your nose has. If you are not satisfied with what the cosmetic surgeon is telling you then do your research, look elsewhere and seek out a second opinion. There is no point in trying to get blood from a stone, if you aren’t happy with the expectations then it is time to look for revisions from someone else.
Unfortunately in many cases the disappointment of patients that their rhinoplasty procedure isn’t what they expected is because the issue is not with the newly shaped nose, but rather in the mind. Body image issues affect a huge number of people and for these people it is irrelevant how much cosmetic surgery which they have, they will never be fully satisfied with how their body looks. A perfect example of this would be Michael Jackson who admitted that he wanted to get rid of his original nose after bullying from his father, throughout his career Michael underwent numerous operations on his nose and was clearly never happy with the result. It is important to understand why you are seeking out rhinoplasty and whether or not it will help you with how you look, or if there is a deeper issue at play here.
