It may seem antithetical, but recovery from a plastic surgery procedure begins before the surgery is even performed. Preparing for surgery gets your body ready for the procedure. Breast augmentation surgery patients will be given detailed instructions of do's and don'ts leading up to surgery. Be sure to follow all pre-op and post-op instructions closely. This will help improve healing times and the patient recovery experience. The instructions will also help prevent post-surgical complications from occurring.
When it comes to any sort of surgery, it's important for patients to understand the procedure they're about to undergo and what the outcomes might be.

When a person undergoes a rhinoplasty (nose job), the results can be extraordinary. The overall symmetry and appearance of the face may be greatly enhanced. Often, this means added balance or improved prominence to various facial features, translating into improved confidence and a better sense of self.
There have been a number of psychology studies that have shown that people’s perceptions of facial beauty are closely tied to symmetry. In other words, the more symmetrical the individual facial features, the more likely it is that the entire face will be perceived as beautiful. Of course, very few people have exact symmetry to their facial features.
A rhinoplasty (nose job) cosmetic surgical procedure can do wonders for your facial appearance. In some cases, it can also allow you to breathe easier and sleep better by reducing your snoring. No doubt, you are excited to see and feel these results from your procedure as soon as possible.
A rhinoplasty can make a world of difference. Removing a bump on the bridge, altering the size of the nostrils, and changing the angle of the tip of the nose can improve your appearance. Yet many patients do not realize that the results of a rhinoplasty can be affected by what happens before surgery.
Our team would like to consider the pre-op phase before a rhinoplasty is performed at our San Mateo, CA practice. As you're about to read, this can be a crucial part of looking your very best.
The nose is such a prominent facial feature. It's also problematic because of its prominence. An issue with the shape or size of the nose can result in a poor appearance as well as problems with self-confidence. Such is the case with dorsal bumps. These humps on the bridge of the nose can be a major cause of self-consciousness. In fact, just a small bump can throw off the symmetry and proportions of your face. This can impact self-esteem for many years.
Once you have made your decision to undergo a rhinoplasty cosmetic surgical procedure with Dr. Griffin, you are no doubt already excitedly looking forward to what your new nose will look like. You may even be thinking that you will get to see that reshaped nose almost immediately after surgery.
