Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance or functionality of the nose. It can involve reshaping the nose, adjusting its size, modifying the nasal tip, or correcting breathing difficulties.
The recovery period can vary from patient to patient. Generally, the initial swelling and bruising will subside within a couple of weeks, but complete healing and final results may take several months. Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative care instructions to help you through the recovery process.
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications involved with rhinoplasty. These can include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anaesthesia, scarring, asymmetry, or unsatisfactory aesthetic results. It’s important to discuss these risks with your surgeon before making a decision.
In most cases, the incisions for rhinoplasty are made inside the nose (closed rhinoplasty) or in inconspicuous areas (open rhinoplasty). This helps minimise visible scarring. However, some external incisions may be necessary for complex cases. Your surgeon will discuss the incision technique and potential scarring during the consultation.
It takes time for the swelling to fully subside and for the tissues to heal after rhinoplasty. While initial improvements will be noticeable within a few weeks, the final results may take several months to a year. Patience is important during the healing process to achieve the desired outcome.
Yes, rhinoplasty can address both aesthetic concerns and functional issues. The procedure can enhance the nose’s appearance by reshaping it to achieve better proportions and symmetry. Additionally, it can correct structural abnormalities that hinder proper breathing, improving nasal functionality.
