Rhinoplasty is a common and yet complex nose surgery. It can reshape the nose, create a smaller nose, and eliminate any unwanted bumps. Nose surgery is a good procedure to consider if you are bothered by asymmetry and want to improve your facial features. Before scheduling your rhinoplasty, here are few unknown tips you should know:
Don’t Underestimate the Power of a Great Plastic Surgeon
In order to have the best possible outcome from rhinoplasty you should choose a facial plastic surgeon that is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Plastic surgeons that are certified have gone through numerous exams and years of additional training so you can rest assured that you are in good hands.
Your Surgeon is not a Magician
A good surgeon will know exactly what can be done and provide you with a realistic expectation for your rhinoplasty results. Speak to your facial plastic surgeon so both of you are on the same page about your surgical goals. Knowing what to expect will help you feel comfortable going in and you will be happier with your results.
You Need Down Time
Take a break and give yourself a good 7 days before returning to work and your daily routine. The more time you allow yourself to heal, the better and faster your recovery will be. There will be significant swelling and bruising the first week, but you will be happy that you gave yourself that time to rest.
It can take anywhere from six months to a year for your nose to heal completely. There is still plenty of residual swelling inside on your nose, which is not noticeable on the outside. Some patients automatically assume that their rhinoplasty did not turn out the way they wanted, when actually the nose just needs proper time to heal in order to reveal the final results.
Rhinoplasty can improve your appearance by balancing your features. Contact our certified plastic surgeon for a consultation on your procedure.
