The patient should always feel comfortable with his or her physician and have a good understanding of the goals and objectives prior to undergoing any treatment or procedure.

At the initial consultation, Dr. DeRosa will ask the patient to express his or her desires/goals for surgery. It is important for the patient to be candid about any other medical conditions or history that may impact an optimal result. Next, Dr. DeRosa will perform a detailed history and physical examination and then will discuss with the patient her impression and recommendations. During this consultation (or anytime thereafter), one should be sure to ask any unanswered questions and voice any concerns that may not have yet been covered.

Whenever a patient presents for a rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. DeRosa studies both the function and appearance of the nose.

She also takes into consideration any other factors that may need to be addressed either before or during the surgery. For example, she may recommend a chin implant as an adjunctive procedure to the rhinoplasty in a patient who has a large nose that sits too far from the face and also has a small chin. Alternatively, she may recommend an allergy evaluation when indicated to optimize nasal breathing. At the completion of a rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. DeRosa uses photo imaging/warping to demonstrate potential changes that could be made to the nose, which often also allows improved communication between the patient and doctor.

Dr. DeRosa's surgical coordinator will discuss any out-of-pocket expenses that may be associated with treatments.
