What is a rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is the medical term for plastic surgery on the nose. The treatment may vary greatly depending on what patients want to achieve with the procedure. Rhinoplasty may be performed to address some of the following issues:
- A large or unusually shaped bump on the bridge
- A wide nose not in balance with the facial structure
- A nose that is long or pointed
- Bulbous tip of the nose
- Unsightly or unbalanced nostrils
- Poor nose to lip angle
- A crooked nose that causes a deviated septum
- Sinus problems that reduce breathing abilities
The rhinoplasty procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthetics. Patients will eb comfortable during their treatment as they will be properly sedated. Following the procedure, however, patients need to closely follow the post-operative instructions supplied to them by their doctor. Following these recommendations will ensure faster healing and a reduced risk of problems, including infection.
How long does recovery take?
In most cases, patients who have rhinoplasty performed will typically take anywhere from one to two weeks off from work and other social activities to allow them to heal properly. Patients should also visit the doctor for their follow-up appointment to evaluate the healing process and ensure that the patients is recovering as expected. Any concerns about the healing process can be addressed at this time, and recommendations to facilitate healing will be provided.
