A rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery has both functional and aesthetic benefits. It can improve breathing, reshape or resize the nose for better facial symmetry, and boost confidence. If you’re considering a nose job in Sydney, here are three important things to know about the procedure:
1. Rhinoplasty Options
It’s essential to consult with your surgeon regarding your nose shape and concerns to know which type of nose job surgery is for you. Some of the common nose concerns of patients include enlarged nose tip, dorsal hump, crooked nose, too wide or too flat nose.
At Artiste Plastic Surgery, we offer rhinoplasty options, including Revision Rhinoplasty, Asian Rhinoplasty, Shape Rhinoplasty, Profile Nose Rhinoplasty, Total Nose and Total Nose Plus to achieve the nose profile you want.
2. Possible Surgery Risks
As with any surgery, there are some risks involved with rhinoplasty, including infection, bleeding, bruising, scarring, difficulty in breathing, poor wound healing and skin discolouration.
Open rhinoplasty may result in minimal scarring and become less noticeable over time. For Closed rhinoplasty, scars will not be visible since they are concealed within the nose. That’s why it’s important to consult with your surgeon to discuss possible risks and manage your expectations.
Most patients will be able to return home after the nose job surgery. However, you may need someone to drive you to and from the hospital and assist you at home for a few days. A splint may be placed internally or externally to the nose to hold the nasal structures in place for proper healing for 7 to 10 days.
Patients should also refrain from strenuous activities for several weeks or until the doctor has cleared them. The expected downtime and near-full recovery can take 14 days.
