There are many reasons why people are interested in Rhinoplasty. Toronto cosmetic surgery facilities such as Edelstein Cosmetic help provide patients with a safe, effective means of reshaping and/or resizing their nose. For some individuals, a nose job isn’t about aesthetics as much as it is about health. A nasal injury can cause problems, including breathing difficulties.
The nose is in the center of the face. If there is something wrong with the size or shape, people will notice. Cosmetic Rhinoplasty can make the nose more appealing and proportionate to the rest of the face.
What Rhinoplasty Can Correct
A skilled cosmetic surgeon can potentially change any visible feature of the nose, including:
– Overall size
– Tip size, definition and prominence
– Nostril width
– Bump removal
Nasal birth defects and problems caused by injuries to the nose can also be fixed. When a deviated septum is repaired, breathing through the nostrils can be made a lot easier.
Types of Rhinoplasty
Closed Rhinoplasty is a technique that involves making internal incisions to adjust the structure. When an additional incision is required in the tissue between the nostrils, the technique is referred to as open Rhinoplasty. A nose job is also categorized as primary or secondary. The former is when no nasal surgery or trauma has affected the area, while the latter refers to a nose that HAS undergone either an operation or trauma.
There is also Septoplasty, which is performed when the septum is deviated or shifted. This technique corrects the functional form of the nose and allows for proper airflow, and isn’t done for any aesthetic reasons.
Ideal Candidate for Rhinoplasty
If you are interested in a nose job, then you need to make sure that you are a good candidate. Speaking with an experienced surgeon is a must.
In general, the ideal candidate is at least 18 years of age and has realistic expectations. It’s important to be in good overall health as well, so that you can undergo the procedure safely. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or contour of your nose, or have nasal breathing problems, you can benefit from Rhinoplasty.
Potential Risks of a Nose Job
Surgery of any kind, including cosmetic surgery, is not without risks. However, the risks can be minimized a great deal if a skilled, experienced surgeon is performing the procedure. When done correctly, Rhinoplasty is relatively safe. There are still potential complications, such as excessive bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and infection. There is also a risk of the outcome of the surgery not being exactly as expected by the patient, and for this reason, lengthy discussion with your rhinoplasty surgeon before surgery is critical. During these discussions, the patients’ expectations and the surgeons’ ability to deliver these expectations should match. If not, the patient may not be a good candidate, or the surgeon may not be the right rhinoplasty surgeon for you, the patient.
Recovering from Rhinoplasty and Seeing Results
For the first week after the surgery, you will be required to wear a nasal splint. You may experience moderate bruising and swelling around the eyes. It’s best to avoid strenuous activities. Your doctor will let you know when it’s safe to resume them. You may have difficulty breathing for a few weeks due to swelling. Once the swelling goes down, results will become noticeable. The nose will be become more refined over several weeks and months.
