Throughout the last decade, Dr. Kevin Sadati has found that some patients are more suited than others for a rhinoplasty procedure. He has been able to perfect his craft and provide patients the results they are looking for by determining if patients are a good fit beforehand. Not all physicians emphasize the importance of candidacy, but Dr. Sadati feels it is critical to the overall process at his Newport Beach practice. There is a variety of ways to determine if an Orange County patient is, in fact, a good candidate for this cosmetic procedure.
The first step for any potential patient is to perform research on the variety of different rhinoplasty procedures available. Our website, Rhinoplasty Physicians has a wealth of information available to patients about the different cosmetic improvements that are available. These articles outline important information, benefits and risks so that patients can narrow down which options work best for them and for their lifestyles. Also, available on the website are before and after pictures of previous patients. All patients considering plastic surgery should check out the photographs in order to visualize what their own results will look like in the end.
Once the research has been completed, and a patient has an idea of what type of procedure might be best for them, it is time to book a free consultation with Dr. Sadati. At this appointment, Dr. Sadati will perform a physical exam to ensure the patient is well enough for surgery as well as a mental exam to ensure the patient can handle the emotional stress. Other factors that will be considered at the time include the amount of oil in the skin, the size of the nose and the thickness of the patient’s skin.
At this point, Dr. Sadati will let the patient know if he or she is a good candidate for facial plastic surgery. If candidacy is determined, computer imaging technology is used to help show the patient what their results will look like after the operation is complete. At this time, Dr. Sadati and his staff will photograph the new patient. This helps Dr. Sadati create a custom surgical plan and also serves as a wonderful reference point for the patient after the surgery is done. Once candidacy is confirmed by the surgeon, a pre-operative appointment is scheduled for the patient. The next stop is a better looking patient with an improved sense of self image.
