Plastic Surgery is not a complete operation in itself. There are several surgeries that together constitute the correction surgery to make you look beautiful. One of the prominent and popular surgery technique in this genre is Rhinoplasty. If you are looking to go under the knife for the rhinoplasty, here are a few things you should be aware of.
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery, or cosmetic surgery technique, also referred to as a Nose Job. This is an excellent option for those of you who are not happy with the shape and size of your nose. In fact, it is not just a cosmetic surgery, but can be an excellent option for improving the nasal function after an accident or a trauma injury.
The basic concept that underlies the rhinoplasty involves improving the breathing experience and improve the appearance of one’s nose to the person’s liking. The surgery should take around 1.5 to three hours and can be handled as an outpatient surgery. There are two types of rhinoplasty techniques – closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. In either case, the incisions made are quite quick to heal and do not leave any marks.
The post-surgery symptoms may not be difficult to handle in most of the cases. You may experience a mild to moderate discomfort for a couple of days. These symptoms can be controlled with the help of medications. You will need to wear the splints for a few weeks. This is done to ensure that nasal bones and cartilage are protected. Having to wear the splints may be a little awkward in social meetings, but can be handled without issues. You would like also need to take care not to undertake the strenuous activities like jogging or running. Wearing glasses for a few weeks may need to be avoided. If you need to wear glasses, you may switch to contact lenses for the period.
In essence, it is a simple exercise, and you do not necessarily need to worry much. Just take the precautions suggested by the surgeon for a few weeks and you are back to the job – with an improved nose.
