The rhinoplasty evaluation consultation with Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier is always a lengthy process. This consultation is fundamental
so the surgeon perfectly understands what the patient wishes to change about their noses. During this process, Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier carries out careful analysis of the patient's nose
, taking notes on all the minor nasal deformities while also evaluating the functional interior sections of the nose.
These minor nose deformities are shown to the patient alongside discussion between Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier and the patient about the correction possible
in each case. Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier then draws up a surgical plan
that is explained to the patient during the same consultation. This plan is described and discussed in detail with the patient until reaching a consensus on the changes to be made by surgery.
Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier also produces a computer simulation of the predictable outcome of rhinoplasty.
Although this is an approximation and reflects the inherent limitations of imaging software, this simulation, performed during the same consultation, enables the patient to foresee the approximate result and to study in detail the aspects for modification. This simulation also enables the contrasting of different surgical strategies so that the patient and Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier may then choose the most appropriate option for the best outcomes.
During this evaluation session, Prof. Dr. Rui Xavier explains how
the surgery will be performed, the necessary post-operative care, the period of absence from normal activities as well as answering any questions raised by the patient.
