Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look with realistic expectations.
Before rhinoplasty surgery
Prior to surgery a detail medical history is taken and a careful examination is conducted. The physician and patient discuss procedure, anesthesia type, possible risks and complications as well as the incision site. Pre-operative instructions may include the elimination of certain drugs and smoking habits. While you’re making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days if needed.
Rhinoplasty risk and complications
Complications connected with the surgical procedure are rare: however there are inherent risks connected with every surgical procedure. There is always a possibility of complications, including infection, nosebleed, or a reaction to the anesthesia. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery. In about one case out of ten, a second procedure may be required-for example, to correct a minor deformity. Such cases are unpredictable and happen even to patients of the most skilled surgeons. The corrective surgery is usually minor. It is possible to develop tiny red marks and “spots”, this can be the result of blood vessels that may have burst under the skin’s surface during the surgery. Although this is extremely infrequent it can happen and the “spots” may not ever go away.
