Intro to Rhinoplasty

Having a big, long, or prominent nose is a challenging problem not just for you, but also for many people of different age groups. Yet, as you’re going to see next, the solution is so simple! Let’s introduce you to rhinoplasty!
Rhinoplasty, also called nose job or nose reshaping, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the nose by altering the bone and cartilage. This alone can enhance facial harmony and put an end to the struggle of many people who have big noses.
In 2019, over 157,000 women and over 50,000 men underwent rhinoplasty in the United States. This makes rhinoplasty the most common cosmetic surgery for males. Nevertheless, rhinoplasty divides into different types, including nose reduction and nose augmentation. Depending on your needs, your surgeon will pick the type that fits your needs perfectly.

    Candidates for Rhinoplasty

    You should wait until your nasal bone is fully developed if your goal is to improve your look rather than your health. For girls, this happens at about the age of 15. For boys, this may need a bit longer. Nonetheless, doctors can suggest the surgery for people at a younger age if they’re having critical breathing problems. Also, the surgery is a great option for people who want to:

    • Correct birth defect or damage to the septum (deviated septum)
    • Enhance their overall appearance
    • Restore respiratory function
    • Repair nose fractures

    Preparation for Rhinoplasty

    First, you need to look for a surgeon that specializes in nose surgery and has a good track record of patient satisfaction. Together with your surgeon, you’ll discuss your expectations and motives. Also, your surgeon may do the following:
    • Review your medical history, medications, and illnesses. If you have a bleeding disorder, such as hemophilia, your surgeon will advise against the surgery.
    • Perform a physical examination and assess your nose, especially the outer layer of skin.
    • Recommend blood testing and other lab tests to check on your overall health.
    • Take images of your nose from different angles to evaluate the surgery’s long-term outcomes.
    • Tell you to stop taking certain medications to prevent bleeding, such as Ibuprofen or aspirin.
    • Advise you to quit smoking as smokers have a difficult recovery after rhinoplasty.

    Steps of Rhinoplasty

    You can undergo rhinoplasty at a hospital, a doctor’s office, or an outpatient clinic. It normally takes between one and two hours to complete. Surgeons can perform rhinoplasty in a variety of ways. In any case, the steps of the surgery generally involve the following:

    1. Anesthesia

    Your surgeon will provide you with general anesthesia to put you to sleep throughout the surgery.

    2. Incisions Making

    Then, your surgeon will make a tiny incision inside your nostrils or through the base of your nose.

    3. Reshaping Bone & Cartilage

    The surgeon will remove some bone and cartilage to reshape your nose. If more cartilage is required, they can take cartilage from inside your nose, your ear, or other areas of your body.

    4. Incision Closure

    Finally, your surgeon closes the wound with stitches after covering the cartilage with skin and tissue. In addition, they will place a splint over your nose to keep it steady. You can remove the splint after a week.

    Recovery After Rhinoplasty

    You need to expect and do certain things during your recovery after rhinoplasty. This includes:
    • Expect some swelling and bruising around your eyes that may last up to 3 days or 2 weeks.
    • Keep your head elevated for at least 24 hours after surgery, especially while resting. 
    • You can use ice packs to reduce swelling. Your doctor may also prescribe medications to help you manage your discomfort and avoid infection.
    • Expect to see mucous or blood discharge from your nose. However, avoid blowing your nose in the first week.
    • Avoid vigorous activities for 3 to 6 weeks, but you can resume your social activities after 2 to 3 weeks.
    • Remember, you will be able to see its final shape after your nose has healed entirely.

    • Breathing problems
    • Anesthesia-related complications
