They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but when you’re considering rhinoplasty, we’ll take that adage one step further. A picture is priceless.
When you come in for your consultation, we’ll talk a lot about your nose. We want to know what you like about it and what you hate. We also want to know how you feel about other noses. What features do you like in a nose and what do you dislike? Communicating these preferences using words alone can be challenging. Pictures come to the rescue, helping to share your vision with your surgeon and ensuring that you two are on the same page.
Want a Productive Rhinoplasty Consultation? You’d Better Get Clipping
When our patients ask how they can best prepare for their rhinoplasty consultation, we often tell them to get clipping. Grab a magazine and a pair of scissors and start cutting out faces. Make notes about each picture. Write down the good, the bad, and the ugly. We want to know your every preference and pictures help to get the point across quickly.
We encourage you to spend some time in our before and after rhinoplasty gallery too. Look for patients with similar before features to your own (shared ethnicity, similar nasal complaints, etc.). Do you like their results? Why or why not? If you can, select a few favorite patient photos to share with us at your consultation.
The Best Picture Is Your Own
Visualizing potential results can be difficult and we’re delighted to make this process easier for our patients. Included in your consultation is a state-of-the-art imaging and 3D simulation. We’ll use your photos and advanced computer software to provide you with a sneak peek of potential results. See your new look before surgery!
We’ll work with you to ensure we achieve a look you love, and Dr. Schmidt has the operating skills to turn your preview into real-world results.
What Else Should I Bring to My Rhinoplasty Consultation?
We look forward to meeting with you one-on-one during a personalized rhinoplasty consultation at Schmidt Facial Plastic Surgery. We want to see pictures of noses you love, and there are a few other things you can bring with you to streamline the process and get the most from your consultation.

- Medication List- Are you taking any medications or using any supplements? We need to know about them. Bring a list of what you’re currently using.
