      Considering rhinoplasty? Here’s what you must know.

      Rhinoplasty is colloquially known as a ‘nose job’ and is one of the most common plastic surgeries. Surgery can be performed to correct various issues. This could range from reduction or an increase in size, removing a hump, making a nose look sharper to making a crooked nose straight. However, sometimes, it’s also done for “functional” reasons, for instance to improve breathing difficulties or correct an injury as a result of trauma.

      Do some research before you settle on a surgeon. Your surgeon must be able to give you an enhanced nose that looks natural and not one that looks like a ‘nose job’ has been performed on it. Make sure your surgeon has a good reputation for his or her work, ask around for reviews. Be realistic in your expectations. Do not expect your nose to look like that of a movie star you like, rather expect a nose that will look better and suit the rest of your features.

      Facts about rhinoplasty

      Many people think that the results of rhinoplasty will be instantaneous. However, the fact is that the complete result may take up to a year to be noticeable.

      Rhinoplasty is invasive which means that your surgeon will make incisions inside or around the creases of the nose to open the nasal structure where changes have to be made. Rhinoplasty is performed with an anaesthetic.

      There’s usually not much pain post-surgery. The pain is moderate. However, as the natural inflammatory process in your body kicks in, there would be quite a lot of facial swelling and bruising which may continue for 2 to 4 weeks.

      Instructions given by the surgeon must be followed scrupulously and medication taken as prescribed.

      Recovery and downtime

      When it comes to recovery, this depends on the type of rhinoplasty that one has undergone. However, both for open and closed procedures, the downtime usually ranges from one to two weeks. Most patients recover fast, within five to six days in the case of closed procedures. Strenuous activity must be avoided for three to six weeks after surgery.
