What is Rhinoplasty?
More commonly referred to as a “nose job”, rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries available in the country. Patients often elect to have rhinoplasty for one of two reasons:
- They want to improve their appearance or profile
- They are experiencing breathing problems associated with a condition such as a deviated septum or broken nose
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
- Reshape and contour the nose
- Help breathing difficulties
- Smooth down bumps and ridges
Rhinoplasty patients are usually very pleased with their results. They report a more attractive appearance, better profile, and better breathing. These results lead to increased self-confidence. Looking at these rhinoplasty before and after photos can help you see what to expect from the procedure.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Rhinoplasty typically takes a couple of hours. The incisions are mainly under the nostrils or in the natural creases along the sides of the nose, near the base. These small incisions heal quickly, and the scars are practically invisible. When the operation is complete, a cast will be placed on your nose.
In the event that there is any bleeding, a light dressing may be placed inside the nostrils. This dressing can be removed the same day or the next day. The cast is usually removed in about a week while any sutures placed in a natural crease are removed in several days.
Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty Procedure
When you’re preparing for rhinoplasty, the doctor may have to stop certain medications or lifestyle choices prior to the procedure. Smoking should be stopped at least two weeks prior to the surgery to keep the risk factors for complications down and to help healing.
You’ll experience swelling and bruising for a few days after the surgery. While at home, it’s very important that patients take medication regularly, change bandages and dressings, and return for follow-up appointments to ensure a smooth recovery.
