Why You Shouldn’t Get Rhinoplasty

After rhinoplasty, you will experience some swelling and discomfort, so you must avoid vigorous activities. Sweating will also compromise the healing process. Avoid touching your nose with your hands for at least 3 weeks. During this time, it is advisable to keep your hands clean. You can also carry hand sanitizers to help you feel better. While you’re recovering, you should avoid smoking and drinking alcohol.

Before having surgery, you should go for a physical examination. The doctor will assess the changes that you’ll need to make. You’ll want to discuss what the procedure will do to your breathing. He or she will ask about your expectations, as well as your medical history. A person with bleeding disorders is unlikely to undergo rhinoplasty. If you are a smoker or have a history of heart conditions, you should consult with your doctor before getting surgery.

The best candidate for rhinoplasty surgery is in good overall health and should be at least 15 years of age. While a person can undergo the surgery if they are 16 or 17, it’s important to consider whether you’re in good enough physical and emotional condition to have the procedure. Your doctor will also need to review your nasal and facial features, as well as the inside and outside of your nose.

There are many risks involved in rhinoplasty. While you won’t be conscious during the procedure, you’ll need general anesthesia to ensure a successful outcome. In some cases, the procedure will result in a nasal septum that will improve your breathing. If this is the case, your doctor should recommend a procedure that corrects the deviated septum. Your surgery will cost you a few hundred dollars.

Cosmetic rhinoplasties are performed for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons is a desire for facial harmony, which means all facial features should be balanced. Many people seek rhinoplasty to improve their nose and create harmony with their other facial features. Sometimes the nose is a distraction or imbalance in the face, and it may also cause breathing problems. Many people also get rhinoplasty because they’re concerned about wearing glasses.

If you’re not satisfied with your results, you’ll have to go back to your original surgeon. Surgical procedures can be risky, so you should research your surgeon thoroughly and carefully before you make a final decision. Some patients need revision surgeries, while others don’t. A facial plastic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty might have fewer complications. If you’re unhappy with the outcome of your surgery, it’s important to see a professional to avoid future complications.
