Rhinoplasty – What Would I Look Like After Surgery?

If you’ve ever considered having a rhinoplasty or nose surgery, you might be asking yourself, “What would I look like after surgery?” There are many different nose shapes and sizes, and a skilled plastic surgeon can help you achieve your desired result. A good surgeon can work with you to create a result that fits your facial features, preferences, and ethnicity. The surgeon will explain the limitations of a certain nose shape, as well as what you can expect from the procedure. Thick skin, for example, may prevent a rhinoplasty from achieving a refined nasal tip. On the other hand, thin skin may result in visible irregularities.

The appearance of the nose is a critical aspect of the face, extending to the cheeks, jaws, and forehead. A proper nose placement is crucial for facial harmony, as the shape of the nose can change the entire face. A poor placement can make your face appear disproportionate, while a small, prominent nose can throw off overall facial harmony. However, a skilled plastic surgeon can correct your nasal issues and improve your overall facial harmony.

The preoperative assessment should also include sketches of what you want to change. Drawing up a preoperative sketch is a good way to remind yourself of what you want, and also help ensure that you’re following the plan carefully. The surgeon should perform the surgery under local anesthesia, which works well but takes a long time to work. Make sure not to separate the septum from the upper lateral cartilages.

There are many benefits to undergoing rhinoplasty surgery. For example, the surgery can change the size, shape, and proportion of the nose. People may also undergo the procedure if their nose causes breathing problems. It can also correct deformities caused by trauma or birth defects. Before undergoing rhinoplasty, you should discuss your goals with a qualified plastic surgeon. You must also tell your surgeon about your medical history to avoid complications. People with certain bleeding disorders should not undergo this procedure.

The procedure is an outpatient surgery. While general anesthesia is usually enough to ensure your safety, you should try not to smoke. Smoking can inhibit the healing process and can cause infections. A cosmetic surgeon will advise you on postoperative care. The surgeon will provide you with specific instructions and timetables to make sure your procedure goes as smoothly as possible. In the first week after your rhinoplasty, you will feel better and more like yourself.

Before deciding on a plastic surgeon, review his or her website or contact his or her business office. A physician’s website should give you an impression of his or her education and experience, so look for a plastic surgeon with a long history of performing rhinoplasty. You should ask for before and after pictures and compare them with your own. You should also check the quality of the photos, as well as the distance between them.
