A Rhinoplasty procedure, also known as a nose job or nose reshaping, is the most effective surgery to change the size, shape and symmetry of a person’s nose. The natural shape of your nose is generally the result of genetics, however at times an injury or trauma can also disfigure the shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty can help improve self esteem in patients who are unhappy with the shape of their nose and would like to balance out their features. This procedure can also alleviate breathing problems due to structural defects within the nasal passage.
This technique involves a small incision that is made under the nasal tip, between the nostrils. This allows your surgeon to have access to the nasal structures, thereby the ability to sculpt the nose into your desired shape.
This technique involves incisions made inside the nostril and is good for patients who require more minor adjustments to their nose.
Whether you are looking to straighten a crooked nose or reduce the size of your nose, Rhinoplasty patients reports a significant increase in self esteem post surgery.
Correction of Breathing Complications
Rhinoplasty opens up blocked nasal passages which alleviates breathing problems.
This procedure can also restore symmetry to a nose after an injury.
The length of recovery after a nose job surgery can vary and is different for each patient. After your surgery, your nose may be placed in a splint which helps for support. Packing may be inside your nostrils, which is temporary and is typically removed 1 week postoperatively.
Discomfort, congestion, bruising and swelling are normal and to be expected after your surgery. You will also need to keep yourself upright and in some cases an extra pillow may help. After 2 weeks, most patients will be able to return to work and normal activities. Exercise and weight lifting should be avoided for 4 weeks after your procedure.
Out of town patients should expect to stay in the area for up to 10 days, allowing your surgeon time for a follow up.
Scars will continue to refine & will vary amongst patients depending on their natural healing process & location of incisions. Scars are generally refined to fine incision lines one year after surgery.
For the first 1 to 2 weeks, many patients experience bruising and swelling. The clinic will prescribe you pain medication to help you with any discomfort you may feel. It is important to follow the advice of your surgeon on how to care for yourself and ensure proper healing during the recovery period. If you have any questions during this time, it is best to contact the clinic and one of our medical staff will be on hand to help.
Your surgeon will go through any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure. He will also go through associated risks. During your in-depth consultation, you will have the ability to see what your rhinoplasty procedure results will look like with an advanced system imaging software. *There is no guarantee of specific outcomes so individual results and experiences can vary from person to person.
You must not smoke. Smoking can greatly impair your safety prior to surgery and your ability to heal following surgery.
Exercise and weight lifting should be avoided for up to 4 weeks after your surgery, as these activities increase the risk of postoperative complications.
Depending on the technique used, it can take between 1 – 2 hours.
Once the initial bruising and swelling subsides, you will be able to see the improvements in your nose. It is important to have realistic expectations; Rhinoplasty can help improve your current nose but cannot deliver “perfection” or give you the nose of someone else.
