Before you go look for a good surgeon, here we would like you to know a thing or two important things about the rhinoplasty surgery. Here they are;
What happens in the surgery: During the surgery, the surgeon makes some incision at the underside of the nose to have access to the bones or cartilage that supports the nose. Some bones or cartilages may be removed or some tissues may be added to the area by the surgery depending upon the desired result of the surgery. Once the surgery is completed the tissues are re-draped to the nose and a splint is placed to support the freshly operated nose as it heals. Rhinoplasty may be done using local or general anesthesia and the patient in a few cases may stay in the hospital overnight but normally it is an outdoor procedure.
After the surgery: Normally the splint and the bandage stay in place for around a week. The face may remain puffy and the area around the nose will remain swollen and bruised for several days. The doctor may advise to take some medicines for the pain. Generally, the swelling and bruises start to improve around a fortnight of the surgery.
Results: The results of the surgery may range from minor to significant depending upon the correction both the doctor and the patient have been agreed for. The functional benefits such as resolution of breathing discomfort and congestion in the nasal way can be availed from the surgery. And for the greater cosmetic benefits, the patient must have set realistic goals for the surgery in order to not get disappointed by the results.
As such there is no big risk involved in the surgery barring bleeding, skin problem, infection and some effects of anesthesia in the patient.
