If you do not like the nose you were born with, you are not alone. You may feel that your nose is too wide, too narrow, too long, or too short. You could have an annoying bump on the bridge of your nose. You may have been happy with your nose only to have it damaged by an injury. Rhinoplasty, otherwise referred to as a nose job, can help you to correct any issues you have with your nose so you can like what you see when you hold up a mirror.
Why Choose Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can do more than improve the appearance of your nose. It can also improve the way your nose functions. If you have a deviated septum, it can be corrected during rhinoplasty. Sleep apnea patients may benefit from surgery that focuses on the nose. However, the most common reason to undergo this procedure is to make your nose look more appealing. Our plastic surgeon will take what you have now and mold your nose to give you what you want. In the end, your nose will be shaped to match your expectations after discussing your goals with our surgeon.
What Can You Expect After Your Rhinoplasty Procedure?
When you are sent home from your outpatient procedure, your nose is likely to be in a splint. This will maintain its form and protect it. You’re going to have swelling. Bruising is the norm. You’re going to feel like you are congested with a stuffy nose. You’ll need to sleep with your head elevated as you begin to heal. No heavy lifting is allowed; give your nose time to heal and be patient. The results will be out in the open soon enough. After a successful procedure, the shape of your nose will be enhanced. You may breathe easier as well. While most of the swelling will be down in the first few weeks, it can take up to a year before you see the final results of your procedure.
