One of the treatments that has the highest demand is the rhinoplasty procedure, which is more commonly known as a ‘nose-job’. This is a good, safe and low risk surgery which can restore self-esteem and confidence.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is a procedure on the nose to change its shape or function. It can be done for medical reasons to improve breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from accidents or birth defects. It can also be done for cosmetic reasons to correct shape and appearance.
Who is suitable for a Rhinoplasty?
This is a treatment for anyone who is not happy with the shape of their nose and wants to improve their appearance. However, this is not suitable for teenagers as they are still in the process of formation until they reach 18 years or age.
Not only celebrities perform this type of surgery. It is now very common for many people to perform this type of intervention. There is no doubt a person’s appearance is very important. Improving it gives a greater security and a better self-esteem.
Deciding Whether to do it
If you are thinking about getting a nose job, set up an appointment with our surgeon 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.
What Does a Rhinoplasty do?
A rhinoplasty surgery includes adjusting certain aspects of the nose, including:
How does the Rhinoplasty Procedure Work?
A nose job is usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning there is no overnight stay. You’ll get general or local anaesthesia. With general anaesthesia, you’ll sleep through the operation. With local anaesthesia, you will be sedated and your nose will be numbed so you are relaxed and unable to feel what’s being done.
Expected Results of having a Rhinoplasty
After the operation, it will be necessary to wait a certain time to see the final results. You may have some swelling for a week or so. As time passes, you’ll see the final result which will include a more symmetrical, aesthetically shaped and narrower nose.
A rhinoplasty will make a nice change to your overall facial characteristics and solve the problem of size, shape and overall look.
Firstly, please follow all the doctor’s instructions pre-treatment and post-treatment.
This will probably include things such as not consuming alcohol and not smoking prior to, or after surgery. It is best to do treatments in the morning because you might be asked to fast at least 6 – 8 hours before the operation.
After a rhinoplasty, you can eat food and go home without any problem. It will be necessary to take antibiotics for a few days and you must use a plasterboard, too. This will normally be removed after 7 days.
It is important to take it easy for a few weeks and not do any hard, physical exercise like running or going to the gym. You’ll also need to avoid alcohol during this process so that it does not delay healing.
Remember, this is a great procedure to do which improves your looks and self-esteem.
We suggest making an appointment for a consultation and having a chat with our specialist surgeon. Then, take your time to decide whether this is for you, or not.
