My Plastic Surgeon

One of the most prevalent plastic surgery treatments is rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery Rhinoplasty can be used to change the size of your nose, the form of the tip or bridge, the width of your nostrils, or the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also be used to treat a birth abnormality or injury, as well as some breathing issues. If you're thinking about rhinoplasty, this guide will provide you a basic overview of the operation, including when it can help, how it's done, and what kind of outcomes you may expect.

The Most Appropriate People For Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty can improve your appearance and self-confidence, but it won't definitely transform your appearance or cause others to regard you differently.Consider your expectations and discuss them with your plastic surgeon before deciding to have nose surgery. People who want to improve their appearance rather than perfection are the greatest candidates for rhinoplasty. You might be a suitable candidate if you're physically fit, psychologically secure, and reasonable in your expectations.

Rhinoplasty can be done for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons, including as to fix congenital abnormalities or breathing issues.The patient's age may also be a factor in rhinoplasty. Many plastic surgeons prefer to wait until teenagers have completed their growth spurt—around 14 or 15 for girls, a little later for boys—before operating on them. It's also crucial to think about the social and emotional adjustment of teenagers, and to make sure it's what they, not their parents, desire.

Before and After RhinoplastyReza Nabavian MD

Every plastic surgery procedure entails some level of risk and uncertainty.

When a trained plastic surgeon does rhinoplasty, problems are uncommon and usually minor. Nonetheless, complications like as infection, nosebleed, or an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic are always a possibility. Before and after rhinoplasty, you can limit your risks by attentively following your surgeon's instructions.

Small burst blood vessels may emerge as tiny red spots on the skin's surface after rhinoplasty surgery; these are usually mild but may be permanent. There is no visible scarring when rhinoplasty is performed from the inside of the nose; when a "open" technique is employed, or when the surgery asks for the constriction of flared nostrils, the little scars on the base of the nose are usually not apparent.

A second treatment may be required in around one out of every ten rhinoplasty cases, for example, to repair a small defect. Such incidents are very common, even among the most expert surgeons' patients. In most cases, the remedial surgery is minimal.

It is critical that you and your board certified plastic surgeon communicate effectively. The rhinoplasty surgeon will ask you what you want your nose to look like after rhinoplasty, analyze the anatomy of your nose and face, and discuss the options with you during your initial appointment.

He or she will also go over the variables that can affect the process and the outcome.The structure of your nasal bones and cartilage, the shape of your face, the thickness of your skin, your age, and your expectations are all aspects to consider.

When it comes to rhinoplasty rehabilitation, there are a few things to keep in mind.

To begin, you should be informed that it may take up to a year for the swelling to subside and the final shape of your new nose to emerge. During the first several weeks, most patients will notice a minor difference in appearance as the tissues heal and the swelling subsides.

Although you will see a difference after three to four weeks, the ultimate shape of your nose may take months to develop. Most rhinoplasty patients will have their surgery site packed or splinted on the inside, and their nose will be wrapped in bandages on the outside to protect and maintain their new form. This dressing should be left on for one week before your surgeon removes it along with any stitches.

The first week following surgery will be the most uncomfortable and swollen, and you'll probably have some bruising and soreness on your cheeks and under your eyes for a week or two, but this should go away. In addition, your plastic surgeon will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions. This will cover post-operative care, prescription regimens, and any issues to monitor. Following these steps will yield the finest results possible.

Rhinoplasty's Advantages

For a number of reasons, both men and women choose to have nose surgery. Many people feel that having a nose job is purely for cosmetic reasons, but there are several more benefits to the procedure. It can help with breathing issues, and reshaping the nose can also help with sinus issues and a deviated septum in some circumstances. A board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to discuss these concerns with you in greater detail if you have them. Of course, nose surgery can help you achieve a number of different aesthetic goals.

It can cure asymmetry and improve the balance and proportions of the face by addressing nostril width and shape, bridge width, humps or depressions in the bridge, and malformed nasal tips, as well as correcting asymmetry and boosting face balance and proportions.
