One of the most helpful tools I offer for my patients considering rhinoplasty in NYC is the use of digital imaging. Using a special computer program, I can help men and women visualize their results before surgery. This enables the patient to develop expectations about their procedures and gives them more confidence the day of their operation.
How does computer imaging work?
During the consultation, I ask many questions regarding what my patients like and dislike about their nose. I may also take several photographs of their face and profile using a digital camera. After transferring these images to a computer screen, I can manipulate the photos to demonstrate the impact of different physical changes.
Is computer imaging accurate?
Although computer imaging is not 100% accurate, it does give you a good idea of what to expect from your surgery. Mostly, this program is useful in helping to set expectations and develop an effective surgical plan.
What else is computer imaging used for?
I also use computer imaging in my practice for procedures such as face lift, chin augmentation, forehead or brow lifts, and facial contouring.
