Everyone loves to admire beauty. Cosmetic surgery helps people to enhance their looks. Nose surgery, also called rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures these days.
Some people feel their nose is too large, too small or uneven. Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to change the shape of your nose.
Nose Surgery: All about the Procedure and Risks
Rhinoplasty changes the shape of the nose or improves its function. People go for nose surgery due to both cosmetic and medical reasons. Nose surgery is done to correct breathing problems related to nose or correct disfigurement resulting from birth defects or trauma.
If you want to get a nose job done, first you should visit an experienced surgeon. Discuss goals, expectations, medical condition, and medical history with the doctor.
The surgeon will ask you some questions related to your health. He will also evaluate the structures of your nose. After the complete evaluation of your nose and other facial features, the surgeon will tell if you are a good candidate for the nose surgery or not.
If everything is fine, the surgeon will explain to you the various techniques for reshaping the nose.
Rhinoplasty is a simple procedure, and generally, there is no overnight stay after the surgery. General or local anesthesia is used to do nose surgery. The surgeon makes cuts within the nostrils during the operation.
In some more complicated cases, the surgeon also makes cuts across the base of the nose. Then the surgeon reshapes the inner bone and cartilage to enhance the appearance of your nose.
What Happens After the Procedure?
The surgeon may ask you to wear a nasal splint for the first week after rhinoplasty. Swelling and bruising around the eyes are possible complications after the surgery. But, these effects will go away within two weeks.
Your surgeon will recommend you to avoid physical activity for three to six weeks after surgery. After three weeks, you can return to your daily routine.
You will have a little swelling on your nose, which won’t be noticed much by others. Within six months, swelling on the nose will be healed. After your nose has healed completely, the final shape of the nose will be evident clearly.
Risks of nose surgery include infection, scarring, difficulty breathing, swelling, numbness in skin, and skin discolouration.
Your doctor will explain all these risks to you during the meeting. Before going for nose surgery, you must understand the procedure and potential complications.
