If you’re feeling disappointed that you weren’t born with your ideal nose, Dr. Guy Cappuccino is here to help. He performs rhinoplasty in Maryland to either enlarge your nose or reduce its size, enabling you to enjoy a naturalistically enhanced sense of facial symmetry.
Planning Your Surgery
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cappuccino gets to know your ideal results, evaluates the structure of your nose and face, and discusses the possibilities with you. He’ll also explain the factors that can influence your rhinoplasty in Maryland and the results.
These factors include:
- The structure of your nasal bones and cartilage
- The shape of your face
- The thickness of your skin
- Your age
- Your expectations.
Dr. Cappuccino will also explain the techniques and anesthesia he’ll be using, the type of facility where the surgery will be performed, the risks and costs involved, and any options you may have. Most insurance policies don't cover purely cosmetic surgery; however, if the procedure is performed for reconstructive purposes, to correct a breathing problem or a marked deformity, the procedure may be covered. Check with your insurer, and obtain pre-authorization for your surgery.
Be sure to let Dr. Cappuccino know if you've had any previous nose surgery or an injury to your nose, even if it was many years ago. You should also inform Dr. Cappuccino if you have any allergies or breathing difficulties; if you're taking any medications, vitamins, or recreational drugs; and if you smoke. Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.
