What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a type of surgical procedure that generally alters the shape of the nose. There are two main reasons why people consider nose reconstruction procedures – to change their nose appearance, improve the quality of breathing, or both.

The upper part of the nose structure is made up of bone, while cartilage comprises the lower portion. Nose reconstruction procedures change the structure of the cartilage, bone, skin, or all of them. As you talk with your plastic surgeon, you’ll be able to know whether rhinoplasty is ideal for you. Additionally, you will also be informed of what results are achievable.

During the planning process, expect your surgeon to study your facial features and nose skin. It is essential to do this to determine whether you are a good rhinoplasty candidate or not. If a nose reconstruction surgery is possible, your surgeon will create a customized plan for you.

How Long Do the Results of a Rhinoplasty Last?

The result you’ll get from the rhinoplasty procedure depends on the type of correction you want. It is also important for you and your surgeon to agree on the surgery goals. If your goals and expectations are realistic, your plastic surgeon will likely be able to provide them for you.

When it comes to the results of rhinoplasty, it is permanent. However, if other factors such as a subsequent injury occur, it can alter the nose appearance. Nose reconstruction surgery is also done only on fully-developed noses.

Complete nose development occurs around age 15-16 in females and around 17-18 in males. If a rhinoplasty procedure is done before the recommended time, the continued nose development might alter the results and even cause complications.

How Can You Prepare for a Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Before scheduling a rhinoplasty procedure, you need to meet your surgeon to determine if the surgery will work well for you. Here are the steps that occur during the preparation process.

Medical History

One of the most important questions your doctor will ask you is about your reason and goals in getting the surgery. Your doctor will also ask questions regarding your medical history such as previous surgeries, nasal obstructions, and medications that you take. If you experience hemophilia, a bleeding disorder, you are likely to fail as a candidate for rhinoplasty.

Physical Examination

After inquiring about your medical history, your doctor will perform a complete medical examination, including blood tests and laboratory tests. Your facial features and nose structure will be examined as well. Moreover, observing the cartilage strength or skin thickness help doctors determine what specific changes are needed to be made.

Taking Pictures

Staff from the doctor’s office will take pictures of your nose from various angles. After this, your surgeon might use computer software to effectively demonstrate what results are possible. These photos will also be used as references for surgery, reviews, and assessments. However, photos are mainly used to discuss your surgery goals.

Discussion of Expectations

You and your doctor need to talk about your expectations and motivations. This allows your doctor to explain what is achievable and not, giving you an idea of the results you’ll get. Some individuals may get self-conscious discussing their appearances, but being open with your surgeon is vital to achieving optimal results.

Preparations Before the Surgery

Once your surgery is scheduled, you are advised to have someone drive you home if you plan to have outpatient surgery. This is because getting anesthesia causes you to have slowed reaction time, memory lapses, and impaired judgment. Having a family member or friend with you for a night or two to help with personal tasks would be very helpful.

Foods and Medications to Avoid

Patients are advised to avoid taking medications containing ibuprofen or aspirin two weeks before and after the surgery since they can potentially increase bleeding. Your surgeon will prescribe you the particular medications you can take. Moreover, avoid over-the-counter supplements and herbal remedies. For smokers, doctors are likely to advise you to quit smoking for some time. Smoking hinders the healing process and may cause an infection.

How is Rhinoplasty Surgery Recovery?

 Your surgeon will likely advise you to plan a week off from work, school, and other responsibilities. Expect to feel better each passing day throughout the first week. After a week of recovery, people usually feel like themselves again.

After the surgery, you need to keep your head in a position higher than your chest to reduce swelling and bleeding. Your nose may also get congested because of the splints inside your nose or due to swelling.

The internal dressings remain for around 1 to 7 days after surgery in most cases. Your surgeon will also attach a splint to your nose for support and protection. Splints usually stay in place for about a week.

It is common to experience slight bleeding and mucus drainage a few days post-surgery or after removing the dressing. To absorb drainage, your doctor may place a drip pad under your nose. You might be required to have them changed as directed by your surgeon.

Post-Surgery Precautions

To significantly reduce the chances of bleeding and swelling, your doctor may ask you to follow these for several weeks after surgery:

 

  • Instead of showers, take baths while you still have your nose bandages.
  • Avoid intensive activities such as jogging and aerobics.
  • Consume high-fiber foods, such as vegetables and fruits to avoid constipation. Constipation may cause you to strain, which pressures the surgery site.
  • Do not blow your nose.
  • Gently brush your teeth to limit upper lip movement.
  • Avoid extreme expressions such as laughing or smiling.
  • Don’t wear clothes that require you to pull them over your head.
