Rhinoplasty’s procedure steps

Rhinoplasty’s procedure steps

1. Preparation

Before scheduling nose job, you must meet with your surgeon to discuss important factors that determine whether the surgery is likely to work well for you.

You’ll talk about why you want the surgery and what you hope to accomplish by having it. The surgeon will check your medical history, conduct a complete physical examination,

look closely at the skin on the inside and outside of your nose to determine what kind of changes can be made and he /she might order blood tests or other lab tests.

Someone surgeons will take photographs of your nose from various angles. These photos can be manipulated to show you what kinds of results are possible.

Your surgeon will explain how to prepare for your operation, it is important to follow your anesthetist or surgeon’s advice

2. During the surgery 

Depending on what you’re having done, a rhinoplasty operation takes between 90 – 180 minutes, İt is made in a hospital or clinic, your surgeon will use local or general anesthesia relying on how complex your nose job is but usually, it is done under general anesthesia so you’ll be asleep during the surgery.

You’ll need to rest until the effects of the general anesthetic have worn off. You will need to have a splint held over your nose by tape for seven days, and a pad under your nose for 12 hours.

In some cases, you may be able to go home on the same day and in others, you need to stay in the hospital for one or two nights.

3. Nose Job Recovery 

After rhinoplasty, you may have a few side-effects and complications for a short while, you’ll probably feel ‘bunged up’ for a week or two after your operation and will have to breathe through your mouth.

You may have soreness, swelling and bruising, particularly around your eyes and you might get headaches. Your face will feel puffy, so your doctor might prescribe painkiller and nose spray.

Your doctor may ask you to follow some precautions after the surgery such as:

  • Avoid strenuous exercise or contact sports.
  • Follow a special type of diet like eating fruits and vegetables.
  • Stay away from extreme facial expressions (smiling or laughing).
  • Brush your teeth gently and other several instructions.

Everyone recovers from rhinoplasty differently; some people may go back to their life sooner than others. The surgeon will decide when you can back to your activity depending on your case. If you must fly; it is best to wait for a week or two and you should wait a few days before you drive.
