What’s Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Before undergoing rhinoplasty surgery, you should understand the procedure’s risks. This type of surgery can be painful, but it is well worth it in the end. A rhinoplasty procedure can correct a wide range of cosmetic problems. It may even improve your breathing. To learn more, read on. Listed below are some of the most common types of rhinoplasty. You’ll learn which one is right for you.

After the procedure, you’ll experience swelling and drainage. A drip pad will be placed beneath your nose to absorb excess blood and mucus. You’ll be given instructions on how often to change the pad, but you can expect to be back to work in a week or two. The first few days after the surgery will be the most painful, but you’ll feel better every day. The final shape of your nose should be visible within a few weeks.

Before undergoing rhinoplasty surgery, you must consult with your surgeon. Your surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). He or she should be able to handle complications. Your surgeon will also ask you about your medical history. If you’re prone to bleeding or have a medical condition called hemophilia, you’ll want to talk about it with your surgeon.

Once you’ve met with a qualified surgeon, he or she will take photos of your nose and other features. The photographs will help your doctor make a decision about whether or not you need the procedure. In addition to assessing your facial structure, your surgeon will review your desired changes and discuss your options. If your procedure is outpatient, you’ll have to arrange transportation for yourself and your driver.

Before your facial plastic surgeon performs rhinoplasty, he or she will evaluate your nose and ask questions to determine what changes you want to make. It’s crucial to choose a surgeon who listens to his or her patients, as they’re the best ones for your case. It’s best to choose someone with a wealth of experience and a good reputation. There are many reputable surgeons who can perform rhinoplasty.

The procedure is performed in a hospital, physician’s office, or outpatient surgical facility. It can take an hour or two, depending on the extent of the procedure. Local anesthesia numbs the area around the nose, so you can be relaxed before the surgery. General anesthesia makes you unconscious during the procedure. During the surgery, you will have to breathe through a breathing tube for a few hours.

Most rhinoplasty surgeries involve a small incision on the inside of the nose. Some rhinoplasty procedures involve adjusting the septum, which is a structural problem in the nose. Deviated septum can affect your breathing and make it difficult to breathe. Septoplasty surgery can correct deviated septum and other structural problems.
