Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose. You can better prepare for rhinoplasty and know what to expect afterward by first learning if you are qualified to undergo this unique type of cosmetic surgery. The best way to do this is to visit our office.
Cosmetic surgeons will not operate on just any patient who asks for a nose job. Each patient must be carefully screened to ensure that all of the criteria that will ensure the patient’s best chances of recovery are being met.
The most basic of qualifications demand that:
- You are physically healthy
- You are a non-smoker
- You have a positive outlook on life and realistic goals for improving your appearance
Our doctor will also examine your nose to determine what, if any, kind of improvements can be made to its shape or appearance. You may be permitted to go through with the surgery if your nose:
- Is too wide or big for your facial dimensions and structure
- Has an upturned tip
- Has noticeable bumps and defects
- Is crooked
Once our surgeon knows what corrections can be made to your nose, you may be scheduled for an upcoming rhinoplasty operation.
What to Expect with Rhinoplasty
As was previously mentioned, rhinoplasty is a surgery that can improve both the look and function of the nose. As such, if you have a deviated septum, breathing difficulties, or some type of damage from an injury, rhinoplasty may work for you.
The details of each rhinoplasty procedure vary from patient to patient. However, every rhinoplasty procedure includes a recovery period. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing and take it as easy as possible during this time in order to get the best results possible.
Once you have fully healed from your procedure, you will be able to enjoy the results for a very long time, if not for the rest of your life. When you look better, you will feel better. Similarly, when you can breathe better, you’ll feel better as well.
