Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
Nose is a very prominent feature of the face which is why many patients wish to have a corrective surgery to improve the shape. Rhinoplasty otherwise known as surgical shaping of the nose is not always just performed for the aesthetic reasons but it can also improve patients breathing.
It can be done for medical reasons — such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects.
It can also be done for cosmetic reasons, which will change the nose’s shape and appearance.
Why Nose Job?
If you are thinking about getting a nose job, we will set up an appointment with a good surgeon for you to discuss it. During that meeting, talk about your goals and tell the doctor what bothers you about your nose and how you would like to change it.
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfect nose. Surgery, though, can enhance facial features and emphasize your unique and natural beauty. A plastic surgeon can describe the facial features that make you unique and tell you how changes would enhance your appearance.
The surgeon will evaluate the structures of your nose and other facial features. After this evaluation, he or she can tell you if your expectations are realistic.
The surgeon will also consider your overall health and should discuss with you the risks, recovery time, and costs involved.
There are various techniques for reshaping the nose. Once you decide to go ahead, your surgeon should describe exactly what he or she proposes to do.
Rhinoplasty: Hospital Period
A nose job is usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning there is no overnight stay. You’ll get general anesthesia. With general anesthesia, you’ll sleep through the operation.
During an operation, the surgeon makes cuts within the nostrils. In more difficult cases, the surgeon may also make cuts across the base of the nose. The surgeon then reshapes the inner bone and cartilage to produce a more pleasing appearance.
Nose Job Recovery
After a nose job, people usually wear a nasal splint for the first week. You can expect swelling and some bruising around the eyes after surgery that will begin to improve after the third day. It can, though, last up to two weeks.
Expect your nose to have a little swelling, which probably only you and your surgeon will notice. This will go away over the next six months. The final shape of your nose will be apparent after it has completely healed.
You should avoid strenuous activity for three to six weeks after surgery. You may return to your social activities as soon as within two to three weeks without any recognizable signs that you had a procedure done.
