Rhinoplasty is a procedure that is performed to give you the shape of the nose that you desire. It’s also performed if there are health issues that need to be corrected to help with breathing better or if you have frequent sinus infections. Before you have surgery, there are a few questions that you might want to ask our doctor so that you make an informed decision.
If you’re thinking about having this type of surgery performed, then you need to be in good health unless there’s an issue that our doctor knows about or an issue that our doctor will correct with the surgery. Try to eat as healthy as possible before the surgery. You should also try to quit smoking and drinking for at least a few weeks before the procedure as this can make the recovery process easier. If you have a cold or any other respiratory illnesses, then you might want to wait until they are cleared before having rhinoplasty performed.
Will Rhinoplasty Leave Scars?
Our doctor will try to do everything possible not to leave any scars behind. However, scarring will usually depend on where incisions are made and the details of the surgery. We offer scarless closed rhinoplasty as well as a minimally-invasive version of the procedure. Another question that often goes along with scarring involves nose rings. You can have the surgery, but you would need to remove the ring before the procedure begins. In some situations, you might need to have the area pierced again, depending on where your nose is being altered.
Will My Appearance Improve?
For many people, they notice that their appearance is greatly enhanced after rhinoplasty. Everything from a slanted nose to a tip that might not be just as you want it to look can be changed with rhinoplasty. There is an option to have fillers injected if you don’t want complete surgery on your nose. Keep in mind that you might not be able to see a difference in how you look for a few days to even a few weeks after rhinoplasty as the swelling will take time to go down.
