If you’re considering Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) or Nose Tip Surgery, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask your surgeon about anything you don’t understand.
THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB, NOSE TIP CORRECTION)
Rhinoplasty can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
The best candidates for Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) or Nose Tip Surgery are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) is the surgical treatment to modify the size and shape of the nose. By re-modelling the bones and cartilage of the nose, we can achieve a subtle new shape that harmonises perfectly with the rest of the face. At consultation, the rhinoplasty surgeon takes into account the overall look of the nose from all angles, especially the relationship between nose, forehead and chin.
If case you would like to have a nose like someone you saw in a film or in a magazine it is practically impossible for any plastic surgeon to create an exact duplicate. If you are obsessed by a minor flaw on your nose, the rhinoplasty surgeon might decline to operate on you.
Our rhinoplasty surgeons suggest that you rate your nose on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the ideal and 5 being the worst. It is possible for the rhinoplasty surgeon to improve a nose from a rating of a 5 to a 3, or from a 4 to a 2 and from a 3 to a 2 or a 1, but certainly not from a 5 or a 4 to a 1 rating. For a example, a very large nose can be reduced to a moderate size, but not to a very small size and making a round nose exteremely thin may not be possible. Improvement, not perfection, should be your goal.
BEFORE RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB), NOSE TIP SURGERY
No special preparation is necessary for Rhinoplasty (Nose Job), Nose Tip operation; there must be no fresh outbreak of acne on the skin of the nose.
The nose cannot be operated on while any inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane is present. Pharmaceuticals containing acetylsalicylic acid (Acylpirin, Aspirin, and Anopyrin etc.) should not be used for 3 weeks before the Nose cosmetic surgery, as they decrease the clotting time of blood.
RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB), NOSE TIP SURGERY – OPERATION:
Nose Tip Surgery
- Nose tip surgery concentrates on the soft parts of your nose, and takes approximately 1 hour under general anaesthetic. The plastic surgeon modifies the cartilages inside the tip of your nose and he uses dissolvable stitches on completion, thus avoiding the need for removal after healing.
- Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) encompasses surgery on both the soft and hard (bone) parts of your nose. It is performed under general anaesthetic and takes approximately 2 hours. Dissolvable stitches are used inside the nose on completion, thus avoiding the need for removal after healing.
AFTER RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB), NOSE TIP RESHAPING – RECOVERY
At the end of the Rhinoplasty or Nose Tip Reshaping operation a plaster splint is put on the nose, which remains there for 10–14 days. If it becomes loose as a result of reduced swelling, it is usually exchanged for a new one after a week. Later on, a cotton dressing is introduced into the nasal nostrils (strips of greased muslin), which is removed on the second day after the operation. While the cotton dressing is in place, breathing through the nose is impossible.
After 10–14 days the plaster splint is taken off although it is necessary to put it back on at night for at least another 14 nights so that the shape of the operated nose is not impaired and so that you cannot accidentally damage your nose whilst sleeping.
Our rhinoplasty surgeons recommend avoiding direct sunlight for at least 8 weeks after the procedure.
SWELLING AFTER RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB), NOSE TIP SURGERY
Bruises and the initial swelling will virtually disappear within 14 days of the rhinoplasty surgery. The nose may still swell from time to time for about 2 months. A final, completely stabilised result may be expected after 6–12 months.
RHINOPLASTY RECOVERY TIME – NOSE TIP SURGERY RECOVERY TIME
After 4 weeks it is possible to start loosening the skin on the nose ridge with massages in accordance with the instructions of the doctor who performed the operation. Most patients will be able to return to normal life at around 12–14 days, when the plaster splint is removed.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) and Nose Tip Surgery is a straightforward treatment, but some restrictions are necessary, such as avoiding sunbathing and contact sports for the first few months afterwards. The plastic surgeon will advise you as to the appropriate aftercare regime.
