Computer morphing rhinoplasty

Computer morphing rhinoplasty is a very helpful tool during rhinoplasty consultation. Modifying images taken in the office using computer software allows you and your potential surgeon to figure out whether your aesthetic goals are the same.

This should not be construed as a guaranteed result but it is a communication tool. The experienced rhinoplasty surgeon can tell you what changes are possible and which are unrealistic. This should allow you and your chosen surgeon to proceed to surgery with the same game plan.

I offer complimentary computer morphing to all interested rhinoplasty patients at the time of consutlation. (Stephen Weber, MD, FACS, Denver Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Many doctors use computer morphing rhinoplasty to evaluate a nose pre op. The last study that I saw really feels that good doctor patient communication is best (David A. Bray, Sr., MD, Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Computer morphing rhinoplasty can be helpful, but beware

Computer imaging can be very useful in planning for rhinoplasty. I would advise to use caution. Be sure your surgeon can deliver on what he says he can do. Anyone can make a computer make a picture look better. It is far more difficult to actually perform the surgery. I would advise you to see multiple surgeons in consultation before having any surgery.

See a lot of before and after pictures to see if you like the quality of their work. Board Certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is advisable. (Gregory Pippin, MD, Metairie Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Computer imaging

I find computer imaging in rhinoplasty to be a very effective communication tool for my patients and me to be on the same page regarding surgical goals. Most surgeons use software programs specifically developed for surgical application so the image is reflective of a realistic result.

Other programs are more like photoshopping and may not demonstrate a true result (see magazine photos). You should have a consultation with a rhinoplasty surgeon who uses this technology. (Michael L. Schwartz, MD, West Palm Beach Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Computer imaging for plastic surgery

I think it is useful to use a computer to allow the patient to visualize the potential effects of surgery.

It should be remembered that with the aid of a computer someone can move your nose to the middle of the forehead which just is not possible in real life. (Jay M. Pensler, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)

Morphing Rhinoplasty photos

I have found that using computer imaging to show patients what I am trying to achieve is very beneficial. I stress that this is what I would like to achieve and by no means is it a guarantee.

Sometimes it helps patients by showing them what I can’t do as well. By no means should this be considered a guarantee. (Steven Schuster, MD, Boca Raton Plastic Surgeon)

Computer imaging for rhinoplasty

Computer morphing rhinoplasty before and after

I do morph photos for patients needing rhinoplasty. This gives them some idea of what the changes will look like although we inform them that the results may vary from the morphed photo to some extent. (Donald Nunn, MD, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)

Morphing before rhinoplasty good idea for teaching!

I routinely morph my patients photos, although we take the photos in a very standardized setting and positioning, with standard views. This allows before/after comparison but also more realistic morphing.

Most commonly I morph the side view, as this is where most of the changes are seen the easiest with the least distortion of other facial features. I recommend you find a physician who can listen to what changes you want to your nose and who can then morph your photo to demonstrate realistic results expected. To have someone simply change a photo will not help you achieve the surgical result to desire. (Catherine Winslow, MD, Indianapolis Facial Plastic Surgeon)
