Your face is one of the first things people notice about you. How it looks and the proportions of each individual feature determine how aesthetically pleasing you appear. Your nose plays a big role in how your face looks as it is located right at the center. Your nose’s size and shape can play a big role in your facial aesthetics.
Sadly not all of us are born with the perfect nose. If you have always felt like your nose doesn’t fit well with the rest of your face and you wished you could do something about it? Well stop wishing. Because now, you can change the way your nose looks with plastic surgery! Rhinoplasty may be the answer to all of your nose related problems.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a type of cosmetic procedure done to improve different aspects of your nose. It’s designed to change your nose shape and size. It may also be done for medical reasons. People who have breathing problems or birth-related nose disfigurements, or trauma-related nose disfigurements may also opt for rhinoplasty in order to correct these functional issues.
How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
A rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure that can be done in a couple of hours. It is generally done under an anesthetic to help ease discomfort. Your cosmetic surgeon will usually start by making incisions in your nostrils.
He will then re-shape your nose structure to give it a more aesthetically pleasing look. If your nose job requires a lot of corrections, your cosmetic surgeon may have to cut across your nose’s base and then use the cartilage and bone to reshape it.
Before the Rhinoplasty Procedure
Remember – a rhinoplasty will alter your nose and thus drastically alter how you look. It is vital to have a couple of consultation sessions with your cosmetic surgeon and discuss the procedure in detail before opting for it.
We cannot stress enough, the importance of setting realistic expectations. Also, keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfect nose. You can discuss the details of your rhinoplasty with a trusted doctor during a consultation. During this time, you can discuss what you’re looking to achieve with the surgery and your doctor can inform you about what to expect.
After the Rhinoplasty Procedure
Once the surgery is completed, your doctor will close the surgical area and secure it with a splint. You will have to wear this splint for at least one-week after the surgery. You may have some bruising, swelling, and redness around your nose. These should heal within two to three weeks.
You may also have some slight not-so-conspicuous swelling in your nose which will take slightly longer to heal. Once this heals, the final shape of your nose will be set and your entire facial appearance will be improved significantly.
You need to follow the post-surgical care instructions given to you carefully. Avoid physically straining activities for at least a month after your surgery.
